Come to Mama! A built-in remedy, for Khrushchev and Kennedy--yes, I remember that song--I like these shoes, what with the little architectural windows.

aubrey organics camomile luxurious shampoo

Aubrey Organics Camomile Luxurious Shampoo review, updated.

I have since used this up, but don't plan to repurchase. Much prefer Blue Camomile:

aubrey organics blue camomile shampoo

Blue is thicker...I don't require weighty shampoo, but Luxurious was actually kind of hard to use, it was that watery. You had to pour and apply so carefully, to avoid wasting precious 'poo.

Blue smells better, as well: light and faintly sweet, rather than the almost medicinal scent of Luxurious. In fact, Blue has achieved this shampoo ho's (unusual) stamp of approval.

Neither lathers particularly well, being organic, but they do clean.

lani top

If the road to hell in software development begins with: "Wouldn't it be nice if...", in wardrobe development, it is: "There's a shop..."

This is a killer top. You may be thinking, meh, it's a cotton top...but it wasn't casually slapped together. Like the Art shoe above, a certain amount of thought went into its construction.

This top has a sort of draped, almost paper-like neckline (and cloth that evokes paper is one of my favorite things). The look is more timeless than the cowl neck I was contemplating before.

The cut around the bust is generous (yay!), without appearing baggy. Presumably the neckline would simply be more or less draped, depending on what size rack we are talking about.

The tiny "sleeves" make it seem more season-spanning than true sleevelessness, yet of course it would work in hot weather.'s not cut straight, the way a dude would make it. It subtly undulates at the sides, just enough to be flattering, without being cheesy.
