What? He’s a crusty old pirate, what’s not to lust after? Plus Geoffrey Rush does a damn fine job bringing him to life!
But dude, what up with the Pirates of the Caribbean Captain Barbossa Action Figure? OMG You’re doing it wrong Disney! WTH? He looks almost kindly in action figure form….not very pirate-y! And why is his head so damn long?
Speaking of Disney….
Disney is launching a brand new Fragrance Collection in Disney Stores this month! I’ve always wanted to smell like my favorite Disney characters. Betcha Jack and Barbossa smell like a great big heap of yo ho, ho and a bottle of rum!
Although I was already a Stila fan girl at the time of it’s release I still have flashbacks of my intro to Stila whenever I smell Creme Bouquet. At the time of the Stila Creme Bouquet Fragrance release I was still a bit of a Stila virgin. I think my first collection from the brand was the Picnic in the Park one….does anyone remember that release? CLICK!
About two years later or perhaps a bit more Creme Bouquet was released along with Jade Blossom. And, please, correct me if I’m wrong wasn’t there a third fragrance as well? The trio, as I recall, was meant to be layered together to create different blends and that was actually how it was marketed. Needless to say I loved these fragrances and was ever so happy when Stila recently brought back to full size of Creme Bouquet but I stand by my right to say it’s a damn shame they didn’t bring back the other two.
I’ve been to a slew of various Caribbean islands and there’s always at least one guy on some street corner, fair, or flea market that has some sort of huge ass Silent Hill-like knife that’s splicing coconuts open and sticking a straw in ‘em to drink. It’s fascinating to watch because in most cases it’s a little old man who’s popping these things!
Yeah well, that’s my story of the day! Speaking of coconuts!
Bath and Body Works takes on everyone’s favorite tropical treat for the Summer with their new range Signature Coconut Collection. That collection features fragrance mists, lotions, potions, and even lipgloss in three new scents with a heavy base note of, why yes, you guessed it, coconut baby!
At least I think it’s here. We had a rather uneventful Spring with lots of rain and Summer kinda raced in to the point that AC is absolutely essential, SPF in large quantities should be worn, and a lightweight Summer fragrance needs to be picked out ASAP.
Just a word to the wise this is why we have pools people. The beach has seaweed, unknown species of Jelly Fish that may or may not be related to the Kraken, and sand that will get up in your business.
’bout that lightweight Summer fragrance we all need!
L’occitane Pivoine Flora Eau de Parfum might be just the ticket and hopefully it keeps Jelly Fish at bay or at least works on their sting if you happen to subject yourself to the evil wiles of the beach.
