Back in February... my dog Charlie got caught red-pawed making a snack out of my
Cosabella panties, as chronicled here. This led to my discovery that the company
was going to redo the style I wear, the Soire Lowrider Boyleg. I was concerned since this is the
only underwear I've been wearing for years, having suffered thru years of trial and panty error,
including a few-years stint of wearing mens tightie whities.

So imagine how delighted I was to get this lovely pair of the new style, the Soire Lowrider Hotpants,
to try along with a gift certificate for another pair! My first gift!!! And how do they fit and feel,
you may ask? Perfectly. My concerns allayed, I'm about to order my free pair! Hmm... what color?


Until next time... Miss Absinthe

What The Waters and Frida Give Me

What the Waters Give ME

As a birthday treat to myself (Gemini's Rule!) I took a few days respite at one of my favorite
get-aways, The Spring in Desert Hot Springs. The hot mineral waters can cure a weary body and
the windy quiet (no children) combined with sounds of desert life can heal the psyche.
I like it particularly because it is small (12 rooms) and has a covered pool (in addition to 2 others),
so I can soak in minerals without soaking in sun on my porcelain complexion.

I took my Diana F+ with me (needed to finish off a year-old roll of film), so while contemplating
life and meaning in the universe, and liking how the nail polish (Geranium by Essie)
was set off by the blue water and tiles, I took this shot, inspired by this painting by Frida Kahlo.

May you all find creativity and inspiration in every moment!

Until next time... Miss Absinthe

Stylish Ode to Frida

Blue Skull Earrings

While perusing the groovy vendor stalls at The Silverlake Jubilee,
my eyes caught this flash of blue calling to me... and for $15 they were mine!
I think of Frida Kahlo every time I wear them, my patron saint of creative living.

Until next time... Miss Absinthe
