Back in May I visited the exhibition “Yoko Ono: One Woman Show, 1960-1971” at the Museum of Modern Art. I was preparing to write a short piece about the show as a freelance assignment (see here!) and I ended up enjoying Ono’s early conceptual art more than I expected to.
My latest post on Now Smell This is a review of two rose-scented body products—or, to be more accurate, one body product and one skincare product. You can read it here.

My latest post on Now Smell This is a fragrance review of Kerosene’s Unknown Pleasures. You can read it here.
Another Nonie Creme Colour Prevails review! I own the brand’s Classic Lip Duo (lipstick and lip gloss) in two shades, Vintage Rose (review here) and Neutral Pink. I think I’ll be using Vintage Rose even more often in the autumn; lately, however, Neutral Pink has been getting heavy rotation in and out of my bag.
Lower part of a marble relief with two goddesses, Imperial Rome, 1st–2nd century A.D. Marble, 53 1/2 in. (135.9 cm). The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Fletcher Fund, 1924. 24.97.99
From the Metropolitan Museum of Art website: “The two goddesses are closely related to the figures of Demeter and Persephone on the Great Eleusinian Relief. . . .The altarlike incense burner between them must be an addition of the Roman copyist. This relief is said to have been found at Eleusis.”
