"I like any horror movie about torturing men that reminds me of my beauty products"

Well, who doesn't?

I love that the Aesop oil is called "fabulous"--it's so confident and also punny!

On Excerpts From the March 2015 Vogue, Presented Without Commentary

Upon reading the entire article, I realize that my incomprehension has less to do with cultural differences between America and Argentina, and more to do with cultural differences involving OBSCENE AMOUNTS OF MONEY. (Which I really should have guessed to start with.) So that's simultaneously reassuring and a little bit depressing.

On Estate Jewelry: Dead Cromwell Edition

Always fascinating information, besides the shiny pretty things! The Cromwell burial plaque reminded me, just the other day I happened to see pictures of a mourning ring for Charles I, that reminded me of this series: http://www.laurapreshong.com/blog/100-favorite-rings-in-100-days-2.html

--and lo! Today, a new installment! Signs and portents, I declare.

I especially loved the beetle brooch--and your speculation about a beetle duel--and the Lion in Winter ring!

Ah, so lovely! (Lilies of the valley are one of my very favorite flowers, but I can just hear my boyfriend's laughter at the price estimates if I show him that lovely necklace and make pointed reference to my birthday.)
