Fashion & the tea lover

Are any of you members of I don't even remember how I got invited to join, but by answering a few of their surveys every now and then, I have earned quite a few free magazine subscriptions. The titles are some good ones, too: Newsweek, Hallmark, Interview, This Old House, Smithsonian, and even the fashion magazine Harper's Bazaar, of which I am not, ahem, a typical reader. Though I have enjoyed reading the celebrity stories, I can hardly see myself ever wearing some of Harper's Bazaar's, well, rather bizarre fashions. But amazingly enough, I actually went out and bought an item I saw in the current issue. I'll let you guess which one it was.

Was it ... the Dior Haute Couture gown inspired by a Gustav Klimt painting? (I did think it was kinda neat they used Julianne Moore to recreate the painting.)

Was it ... the $1,095 jeweled sandals from Yves Saint Laurent? (I would actually like these if the heel was 2 inches or under.)

Or was it ... the Organix Reviving White Tea Grapeseed Shampoo shown in this ad?

I'm sure I don't have to tell you which one it was! But I do have to tell you that at the local Walgreens, the conditioner came with a rebate coupon so you can get a refund of the $6.99 purchase price. That will come in handy if you ever want to do any shopping in Harper's Bazaar! (And yes, I do like the shampoo and conditioner. The scent is great, and they left my hair feeling very soft and manageable.)


  1. Ah, yes, life in the fab lane. Well, I don't think I'll be doing any shopping at Harper's Bazaar myself, but I may just head over to Walgreens and check out the Organix hair products. Thanks for a little humour to start the day off right.

  2. I might have to run down to Walgreens and get some of this! Word of mouth is certainly the best advertising! Thank you for stopping by to visit me today!


Thanks so much for taking time to leave a comment! It makes my day to hear from readers!
