So I kind of had a heavy weekend booze-wise, it being Dave’s birthday and all. I was massively hungover yesterday (no surprise), but thought by Monday morning, the fog would have cleared. Uh, no. Still felt like turd this morning. So a shopping lunch was clearly in order. Because in my world, there’s nothing quite like spending money to make yourself feel better. *Gulp*
After perusing the new COS store on Biblioteksgatan and making a pit-stop in Zara (where I NEVER find anything), I remembered that I needed a new fancy candle for the apartment. Hopping over to Byredo, I sniffed all the candles and settled on one of their newest offerings, Vanquish. With top notes of Rose and Green Rose Bud, mid notes of Ginger and Incense and base notes of Cedarwood, Guaiac Wood (?) and Ciste Labdanum (??), it’s a fresh scent for the spring/summer yet still slightly on the musky side. And you know what? It proved to be just the perfect thing to – ahem – vanquish my lingering hangover. Hardy har har. Plus the packaging is way purrrrrrrrdy.
