GIVING:
I’m always amazed this time of year to read the emails that ask me for assistance in finding charitable organizations that need help. Nothing pleases me more than to see others GIVING of themselves. I hope all of you will step out of your daily grind and invest in those around you. I noticed that Roscoe’s is hosting a Food Drive for Vital Bridges. You can earn $1 in Roscoe's Bucks for every food or toiletry item donated through december 14th. Times are tough for a lot of folks. Any help you can offer Makes A Difference!

Cheers!

Back By Popular Demand!

Floris of London has announced that their Stephanotis line of soap and fragrance is being brought back by popular demand! The popular scent that had appointment by the Queen herself was discontinued by Floris six months ago. Clearly someone was not amused by its loss. (This queen included!)

The comforting, reliable and honest Stephanotis scent has been a favorite of mine since I was introduced to it as a boy living in London. With heady notes of orange blossom enlivened with the soft spiciness of carnation contrasted with a green lily of the valley accord are evocative of the intensely fragrant stephanotis blossom. The floral heart, sustained by jasmine and coriander leads to the base notes of sandalwood and musk.

The Floris Stephanotis Luxury Soap is only $35.00. (Box of 3 Bars, each 100g/ 3.5 oz) The Floris Stephanotis Concentrated Bath Essence is only $55.00 (30ml)

Not heard of it? Go to the Floris Website
