Perfume Adverts 2010 – The Pungent Smell of too much Perfume

How do you sell a smell? It is a shame for me to admit that in the times of financial hardship the first charm I will compromise is perfume. I came into the wonderful world of scent particularly late in life. When my friend used to display her empty perfume bottles on a glass shelf as though they were trophies and always ask for a new perfume for Christmas and birthdays I was far more concerned with shoes and jewellery.  This never meant however that I would go about town smelling of soap - in fact quite the contrary - I smelt like a woman of great taste and elegance. I  was lucky enough to have my mother who owns or has once owned all the perfumes a connoisseur of smell should own, Elizabeth Arden Red Door, Yves Saint Laurent Opium, Christian Dior Poison, Chanel No 5, Chanel Allure and her now signature smell Bulgari Amethyste - her perfume collection inevitably became my perfume collection. I have never been...

Iron Man 2

Tonight I went to see Iron Man 2 at the Picture House. I officially heart Tony Stark! This has been the only film I have seen in the cinema  after having consumed food and wine that I haven't fallen asleep on in ages. Even though I'm sure no woman could fall asleep on Tony Stark, or Robert Downey Jr for that matter! I am currently watching Welcome to Colinwood 2002,with George Clooney http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0271259/ If I manage to stay up I will then be watching Made in America 1993 with Will Smith, Whoopi Godlberg, Ted Danson and Nia Long.

How to Marry a Millionaire

How to Marry a Millionaire

On average I watch at least five films a week,  some weeks more. So often I find films that I love, characters that are dazzling, dialogue that is witty and fashion that I want to emulate, but once one film is finished and the next begins I momentarily forget all the things that I love. And as my film vocabulary continues to build I find myself making the mistake of watching a film and half way in realising I've already seen it...So, I am going to start building a film list and diary, following me night by night of all the films I am watching. I am also goint to attempt to list all the films I have watched throughout my twenty six years on the planet. Have you ever wondered how many films you've watched? Send me your lists.... Today I watched How to Marry a Millionaire 1953,  starring  Marilyn Monroe, Betty Grable and Lauren Bacall. I watched it with my mother after my sunday dinner with a glass of red wine, admiring...
