The Lipstick League – week of 8.8.11

Question of the Week: – What perfume can bring back memories with just one sniff?

EauMG’s Answer: Way too many smells throw me back! When I smell Nag Champa or Dior Fahrenheit, I am reminded of the days when I dated my now husband. These are the smells that he used to wear. Anytime I smell headshop incense, I’m reminded of my younger and angstier days. 

How was your week? This week I’ve been getting my crazy home ready for guests. I’ve lived out here for 3 years now and nobody has visited me. My cousin and her partner will be coming out and I’m so excited about that. This also makes me worry because, remember, I’m renovating a house and I’m going to be embarrassed by little things, like “Oh, excuse that closet with no hardware” and random stuff like that.

This week I ordered some rock’n sale items from Space NK that I haven’t received yet. I keep wearing Malle Musc Ravageur and I need bottle badly. I’m in a hair funk and I like inspiration, any ideas? I want new lipstick, new clothes, new everything. So, reading this Lipstick League posts isn’t helping any of my lemmings 😉 Can you resist any of these? :
