Nudie fragrance's for your man

Sometime I feel like I live in a cave. I subscribe to 5 magazines and pick up more off the newstands each month, but apparently it's not enough to keep me informed. I just found out about Marc Jacobs new men's fragrance, Bang.

I recall Diana telling me about a contest on MJ's facebook page and how one of her friends won a Marc Jacobs Stam bag. Diana neglected to tell me about his new fragrance. Knowing Diana's bag envy, she was probably more focused on her friend having won an MJ bag.

PS - I should comment how Geoff always laughs at men's fragrance ads. He wants to know who exactly they're targeted towards, seeing as your typical straight male probably doesn't respond to these ads (teehee).

The Cosmetic Gods Have Forsaken Me

Like a lot of Asian girls, I have stick straight eyelashes that require a lot of effort to curl. The slightest hint of humidity or rain makes them droop. It's really difficult to find products that ensure that my lashes stay curled looking all day long - so when I find something that works, I really stick to it.

For almost 9 years I've used L'Oreal's Le Grand Curl. I had the same tube for 4 months (I know, bad girl) and earlier this month I went to buy a new one. To my surprise my local drugstore didn't have it. I went to several others and they didn't have it either. One of the cosmeticians at Shopper's Drug Mart told me it was discontinued and I almost lost my marbles. Not only was it cheap but it was effective in helping me look like I actually have decent eyelashes. I've tried every brand from Dior to Maybelline and nothing holds a candle to this stuff. I recently purchased MAC's Opulash ($16 CAD) and while it's sufficient, it takes a lot of manipulation with my eyelash curler to achieve what was extremely easy with Le Grand Curl.

So yeah, I'm pretty bummed out. If you've got any tips on a good mascara that holds curl to stick straight lashes, please let me know.

With droopy lashes,

We Return to Regularly Scheduled Programming

We're going to pretend that Nathalie and I haven't been absent from this blog. Hi!

What's New?
- The Lime Shop website is up and running! If you're looking for eco-friendly goods for you, your home or your friends, this is your one stop shop.
- I got a LV Damier Speedy 30. Obviously it's a classic bag that I'll love forever, but I find that it's an abyss that makes it impossible to find anything.
- In a moment of weakness, I purchased YSL Baby Doll Perfume without testing it. I sprayed it on my wrists and nape and am now trying my best not to vom.
- Guess I've been living under a rock, because I went to my first Zumba class this morning. Um, amazing much? They say you can burn between 500-1000 (yes, a thousand) calories per session. I'm planning to go again tomorrow.

Back with a vengance,
