Parisian Chic Weekly Planner ($13.57) Amazon

Parisian Chic: A Style Guide by Ines de la Fressange is on your syllabus and I'm adding this companion piece as well. I would so get this if I didn't already have a 2013 refill for my Kate Spade Canvas Anne Agenda. 
"Ines de la Fressange shares fifty-two new secrets in this elegant and humorous weekly planner that is the chicest way to organize your schedule in style. Following up on the success of their New York Times best seller Parisian Chic: A Style Guide by Ines de la Fressange, the same author duo has teamed up to write a year’s worth of weekly fashion tips in this new daily planner.

From January through December, she offers specific pointers on how to dress like a Parisian—including everything from how to add pizzazz to a simple jeans-and-t-shirt uniform to what to wear on New Year’s Eve—and no-nonsense do’s and don’ts that will have you smiling and looking your best throughout the year. This weekly planner is an elegant accessory in itself, featuring a deep red faux leather cover with gold foil stamp, rounded edges, a ribbon page marker for easy place holding, creamy offset aquarelle paper, four-color printing, charming drawings by Ines, and an address book.

"Bizarre Love Triangle"

The new season of Happy Endings airs tonight at 9 on ABC. It's one of the precious few comedies I enjoy. 

I have a crush on the oh-so adorable Damon Wayans Jr. which is kind of confusing because back in the In Living Color days, I had a crush on Damon Wayans Sr., his dad. Unlike Guiding Light's Reva Shayne Lewis "The Slut of Springfield," who married three members of the Lewis clan, I cannot reconcile this intrafamily desire.

Smell You Later

  • Basil and Mandarin 
  • Pomegranate Noir
  • Nectarine Blossom & Honey
  • Amber & Lavender

I cannot hide my disappointment at the absence of their Grapefruit scent, my favorite. Sniff Sniff. If the fragrance gods are listening, please heed my cries.
