Sniffed...

Tuesday, January 23, 2007


I was just telling Avin that I finally made it to a Ulta. I wasn't impressed. I just reminded me of my sorely missed Cosmetics Store in Pineville that's now a Jason's Deli. But I did get to sniff Britney Spears new fragrance Midnight Fantasy. I love it and must have it. Even though the notes are supposed to be floral and amber,I smelled blueberries!! And bottle is very pretty. If anything, that hoochie's got a nose on her.
