Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's, everyone. As always, I'm later than all my fellow perfume bloggers with my best of lists and holiday posts. Also, I've been smelling some very nice things lately, but I am only eight days away from my licensing exam, so expect reviews to come soon of the following: Stella McCartney Stella Nude, Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir, and Etat Libre d'Orange Jasmin et Cigarettes.

Because today is the day of love, complete with three kinds of cookies (Peanut butter, chocolate chip, and chocolate mint), bags upon bags of Neco Candy Hearts (David's all time favorite candy), home made mix CDs, and last but not least, breakfast for dinner complete with heart shaped homemade buttermilk biscuits, it's a happy day here.

In honor of the special occasion, I'm doing a drawing. You can enter until Midnight, February 24, 2010, at which point I will be done with my exam! The winner will receive my special holiday CD mixes and 3-4 random samples from my collection: probably a mix of things from places like Tauer Perfumes, Bond no. 9, L'Artisan, etc. Definitely I'll include a sample of S-Perfumes 100% Love, because what could be more appropriate?

Also, I'll just take a moment to point out that today is not just a day for lovers. The modern feminist in me demands I also point out that today is V-Day, with a special focus this year on ending rape in the DRC. Our campus V-Day celebration and fund raising event is next week, but that doesn't mean we can't think about it today...and every day. Founder Eve Ensler is always quick to point out that women are one of our greatest natural resources, and one we are perpetually exploiting.

Until the violence stops...

Happy Valentine's Day-what area of law are you in? I am a litigator.

Diana said...

Esme, I'm only just starting out, but I focused on criminal law (prosecution) and crime victims' rights, which is a specialty at my school. Hoping to either go back to DOJ/DA's office or into higher ed administration, which is what I was doing before law school.

Oh, I'd like to win your CD. :)
Happy Valentine's day (although I'm a bit late).

Happy V-Day. (or the day after V-Day. Is that W-Day?) Anyway-- I love the heart egg-toast pix.

Good luck with the studying-- it will all be over soon! And thank you, as always, for highlighting important issues along with the pleasures in life.
