A short list this week, since I seem to have spent most of my time cooped up in the office, trying to finish up all the backlog of work and shaking my hands to relieve the cramping sensation of writing too much.
First on the list~ I got a new summer scent last weekend, because Sephora was having a 20% off sale and I did some maths and decided I could spend that amount without feeling like my wallet is going to murder me in my sleep.
Hermes’ Un Jardin Sur Le Nil, created in 2005, is part of Hermes’ Jardin collection, designed by perfumer Jean-Claude Ellena. It’s a light, almost effervescent scent, with bright notes like green mango and lotus, supported by a base of incense and musk. I think it’s perfect for those hot balmy days where you need something delicate to waft about you instead of acting like a second coat or something. Un Jardin Sur Le Nil is also one of those fragrances that works well on either gender.
International shipping and turnabout times mean that it can take quite a while for indie orders to reach me, but here are two tiny hauls that I made a couple of months back during sales.
Evonne from Darling Clandestine and Caitlin from Shiro Cosmetics both sent me a lot of candy~ Most of them made it okay, but a couple of them got a little squashed and anyway they’re off recuperating in the fridge.
Cry did a playthrough of Corpse Party a long time back and I really enjoyed his version, but of course, Pewds is just as entertaining, though for different reasons. I watch Cry to be immersed in the gameplay, and Pewds for the lulz moments.
Also, the background music/main theme is actually pretty good.
One of my piano students wanted to learn the piano version of this song, and she brought in some sheet music for us to go through. I guess this is one of the newer anime out there, given that I never heard of it. No Game No Life is about a pair of hikikomori siblings who are obsessed with games (and they’re very good at it). They get transported by a God to a fantastical universe where everything is determined through games.
I doubt I’ll be catching this series, but I do think that the song is pretty catchy.
