Murphy in action

I have no idea how Murphy’s law came into being, but my life certainly shows aspects are being run by it. 🙂 In a couple of hours, I’ll be off to the seaside for a week off and guess what – it’s going to rain half of the time! Of course, this week has been very hot both here and at the coast, and from tomorrow on, we can expect a significant drop in temperature and rain. Well, I have a close relationship with Murphy, so I tend to forgive most of the laws in action. Including this one – I’ll have my books and I’ll be able to sleep as much as I’d like, besides, after Wednesday, the weather should improve, so I figure I’ll get my place in the sun.

The good side of this is that I’ll be able to utilize my arms for testing all those samples that just keep piling up on my desk, in my drawer and all other places where I put them imagining that I’ll remember where they are a week later. 🙂 The other day I found a box of samples I completely forgot I had. Anyway, if my arms are not going to smell like sunscreen, I’ll sniff as much as I’m able.

The other problem that appeared lately is the fact there are so many samples I tried and loved, and I don’t have any of them in a significant amount and I’m not planning on buying any perfumes any time soon (that’s what I tell myself) – and all those summer fragrances I have are just not cutting it this year. I mean I like them still very much, but I had enough of them for now and I want something more now. Okaaay, this doesn’t sound good for my wallet (credit card account). It’s really good that MUA exists. At least swapping helps a bit, although not completely.

I figured, if I start wearing one sample each day, I might try them and write short reviews while wearing them, but that’s a double edged sword. First, it’s summer so I might randomly select something not compatible with the heat, and secondly, if I don’t know what it smells like and I put it on, what if it’s something absolutely awful that needs to be scrubbed off? But if I was brave enough to tell a hairdresser I visited for the first time to do whatever he felt was right (and he did, and it was absolutely wonderful and bravely short), I can do this as well. 🙂 I’ll go first with those I have an idea what they might smell like. That should satisfy my need for smelling new things and not make me forced to choose from my stack of summer scents.

I hope everyone has a fun week and that there are several packages I expect waiting for me when I come back. 🙂

The picture is what I hope my days are going to be like the following week. 🙂

    Hope you're having a good time regardless and that the rain predicted isn't too much. I sure enjoy the sea photos you're posting!

    Dear D, unfortunately, the weather was true to the forecast. It got warmer by the end of the week and I did manage to get a swim and some sun, but only for a day.

    Hey Helg (or E – I'm never sure which would you prefer) 🙂 – I'm glad you enjoy the pictures, I wish I had more from the last week but I had no enthusiasm for taking pictures when everything was gray. I hate it how I let weather influence my mood and frame of mind.

    And I forgot to say, in the end, I did have a good time – reading and relaxing with some big-time house cleaning. *grin*
