Tough As A Diamond

“I’m a survivor – a living example of what people can go through and survive.You just do it. You force yourself to get up. You force yourself to put one foot before the other, and God damn it, you refuse to let it get to you. You fight. You cry. You curse. Then you go about the business of living. That’s how I’ve done it. There’s no other way..” ( Elizabeth Taylor).

Crank it up! 🙂

PS: Got thinking about Elizabeth Taylor because I wore  the perfume ‘White Diamond ‘ today.Normally, I wear it in winter because it is a strong perfume. I am a huge fan of the iconic ‘White Diamond’ although  there are sharply different reactions to this perfume.  Perhaps I love it because of the longevity of the fragrance on my skin and especially on my feet. Which gets me thinking if many women put perfume on their feet too? I mean use the same perfume from head to toe?Traditionally one is supposed to put it on the inner wrists, the base of the throat, behind ear lobes, in the cleavage, behind knees, and the inner elbows. Ummm….just curious 🙂 Of course, one is reminded of the Chanel maxim…”A woman should wear perfume wherever she wants to be kissed” 🙂 But yes, “Perfume should tell a story – the story of who you are, who you might be, perhaps even of who you fear becoming . . . all of these things are possible. It’s a very intimate element of a woman, just like her signature or the sound of her voice. And it conveys feelings and states of being that have no name, no language. Its very ambiguity makes it truer than words because, unlike words, it can’t be manipulated or misunderstood.”( ‘The Perfume Collector’,Katherine Tessaro)
