TokyoMilk Bittersweet. This smells just like my beloved Dylan’s Candy Bar chocolate frosting body cream (briefly sold at Sephora)- for the first 15 minutes, anyway. Then all that chocolatey goodness gives way to an undistinguished white floral. I don’t regret buying a bottle (how could I, at $36?), but I deeply wish that I could have more time with that glorious top note.
So Delushious. Reading a model’s food blog does not sound like anyone’s idea of a good time (I deeply apologize to anyone whose idea of a good time involves wheatgrass juice fasts). But Chrissy Teigen, supermodel and fiancee of should-be-a-supermodel-but-is-actually-a-singer John Legend, has won me over with her profane ramblings and precious bulldogs. I came for the shirtless John Legend pictures, but I stay for the impressive Thai recipes.
Masterchef is back, y’all! Gordon Ramsey has three modes: supportive (Masterchef), stern (Kitchen Nightmares), and hellbeast (Hell’s Kitchen). Masterchef is the cooking show for those of us who prefer a kinder, gentler Gordon. (I maintain that Gordon beats out Clooney in the “delicious older man” category any day of the week.)
The Etat Libre d’Orange Discovery Coffret. Show me another brand that offers 24 samples for $60! Etat Libre d’Orange seems to be moving away from their predictably sleazy sex-for-the-shock-factor image, which suits me just fine. Their latest scents have been smarter and more interesting, and I was getting tired of feeling sexually harassed by my perfume bottles.
The new Charlotte Ronson perfume. Having a sister that briefly dated Lindsay Lohan is enough to get you a perfume line now? One time my best friend saw David Beckham at LAX and he totally said hi. Where’s my perfume line?
