Lust list - YSL Beauté

I want this:

SOLEIL D'AFRIQUE Collector Powder for the Complexion

This bronzer is encased in a wood compact which can be worn about one's neck. It's a natural for me, given my predilection for necklaces from natural materials such as bone, stone, and wood. My predilection for buying necklaces from the World of Good kiosks at Whole Foods and Wegman's is almost as great as my predilection for buying compilation CDs from Starkbucks!

I also like this PALETTE COULEURS D'AFRIQUE Eye Palette from YSL Beauté, but I have similar colors among the eye shadows in my cosmetics collection.


It's fitting that YSL Beauté used an African theme for its summer 2008 cosmetics collection: after all, Yves St. Laurent was born in Algeria and now lives in Morocco. Moreover, he adapted the safari jacket for women's wear as La Saharienne.

I *love* Wegman's. When I moved to Fred, I went into Wegman's withdrawal. We're supposed to get one somewhere in town this year. I can't wait!

I love Wegman's too. I go to the one in Fairfax, off 29. I love the natural products section, the buffet bar, and overlooking the specialty departments (bakery, meat, seafood) from the balcony.

The butter chicken and Thai curry at the hot buffet bar are superior to what's served in many restaurants.

From the balcony, the specialty departments made me think of the food halls of European department stores, although my only point of reference is KaDeWe in Berlin. I haven't been to the famed food halls in the UK.
