Fight the Frump!


It's the first edition of Fight the Frump with Fussy!

Yesterday I spent my entire day with a four year old shopping for inventory and trying to find my sister a birthday present at the same time. After Goober had an accident in his pants in the middle of Marshalls and I still hadn't found a gift for my beloved older sister I knew I needed to spoil myself a bit.

I ventured over to the perfume display and found myself this beautiful bottle of Tumulte by Christian Lacroix:


For the bargain price of $5. How could I say no?? I mean, I love Mr. Lacroix's fashions (though I've never had a chance to wear any of them) so I would probably love his fragrance, too. Besides, nothing makes a girl feel prettier than a new pretty scent.

I tried it on as soon as I got in the car and changed Goob into his new Cars underwear and jeans. At first it was a little fruity but as it dried it turned into this lovely rich exotic scent with a hint of patchouli. Not the kind of patchouli scent that wafts out of a 15 year old Honda Accord with Grateful Dead stickers all over the back,


but the kind that invites you to have romantic interludes in places like this:


Yeah, that kind. ;)

So instead of grabbing the chocolate when you've had a bad day, instead of lashing out at the people you love the most, grab yourself a new perfume. Or heck, grab yourself a perfume you already have and love and just smell pretty.

This concludes this week's edition of Fight the Frump. Check out Mrs. Fussypants blog for more frump fighters!

You are so right - smelling good does wonders!

I agree - scents are a terrific pick-me up.

My fave is Burberry, it's a bit pricy, so I don't like to use it everyday. My EDP (Everyday Purfume) is actually Body Fantasies - White Musk Fantasy ($6 at Albertson's. YAY ME!)

Great post!

Perfume instead of that's an idea!

Mmmm perfume! My favorite of all time is Angel, but I'm out!Thankfully my 3 year old conveniently--and completely of his own accord!--told my husband that he's going to buy me perfume for next Christmas. Yes, it's far away, but my husband picked right up on this hint and said, "how about for Valentine's day instead?"
