Obsession (the compulsion not the perfume)

Crochet is, well, addicting. Granny squares, with all the new colour and yarn choices are far too alluring to resist. And to put the icing on the cake, Country Home puts a gorgeous throw on the cover of the March issue and I am aflutter. I'm liking the hexagons. This one is from Pine Cone Hill. Then did you see the cover of Period Living? Need I say more? Elizabeth had the right idea when she decided to get this book.

Knitting? What's that? That two needle thing? Come on. As I have said before, I may have to change my name to "Btchwstick".

That does look similar to the one on the cover of the book. Still considering....that's all, just considering :)

Holy crap, I have an 8 letter word verification!

Eight letter word verification? I'm so not that important.

Choosing the right perfume can be difficult and because it is also considered an intimate gift buying the wrong perfume can backfire on you and get you the opposite result of that which you hoped for.

The first thing you need to do is do some homework, meaning research. Look at your lady's perfume bottles, the ones that are nearly empty will be her favorites. If there is one there that is nearly full chances are she doesn't wear it often or doesn't like it. Hint around and ask her what types of fragrances she likes and dislikes.

Humans are very sensory oriented and our sense of smell is no different. Certain perfumes can elicit strong reactions in both the wearer and the person reacting to the scent. Perfumes are made not only to attract but to also relax someone. If you aren't totally sure what kind of perfume to buy you can always play it safe and get something in the aromatherapy line. If you go this route, bear in mind that vanilla scents are considered to relax and a peppermint or lemon scent will be more stimulating.
