So sad. I recently received a perfume sample with an online order from Nordstrom. Bond No. 9 Madison Square Park. When I first sprayed the scent, I didn't think I liked it, but I decided to try it on my wrist and now I really, really like it. Here's what's making me sad - it's $260 for a 3.3 oz. bottle. Yikes! That's pretty far out of my league! I don't mind paying a bit more for a quality perfume as I personally believe there is a big difference from inexpensive drug-store perfume. But no matter how much I like it, I can't justify that kind of money for perfume. Especially as I'm always looking for the next new scent and try to buy the smallest bottles I can find.
Currently, I have quite a collection. There are a few that I like enough to purchase again. I was recently gifted a bottle of Trish McEvoy #9 Blackberry & Vanilla Musk for my birthday (thanks Joy & Ann!). My previous bottle ran out a long time ago. It's so nice to be able to wear the scent again.
Another favorite is Jo Malone London Nectarine Blossom & Honey. Jo Malone fragrances are fun because you can layer the different colognes and end up with a completely new scent. This particular scent is light and smells wonderful on its own. It's my Go To when I don't want to wear anything too heavy.
Because there are days when I just know I can't handle a strong scent (I'm looking at you, Jimmy Choo), so it's nice to have some lighter choices.

After night two of sleeping with the elbow brace, my arm actually felt a little better. Not great, but at least it wasn't aching all day. Naturally, by the end of the day I had done something to it and it was angry at me. I had Erin again for PT and she gave my elbow quite a rub down. Daryl did the radiohumeral joint manipulation again.
So here's the plan. I'm to sleep with the elbow brace every night over the weekend. By Monday I should know if it's doing enough good to continue PT. Otherwise, I will see Dr. P again and he will likely refer me to one of his favorite orthos. Apparently one of them is so fantastic, there is a wait of around eight weeks just to see the man. Which really makes me want to see him, but not at the expense of such a long wait. So I will probably see ortho number two.
We'll see how it all plays out. Tom and I are planning to go mountain biking tomorrow. You can bet that I didn't tell the therapist about that.
