    I’m putting this out there:
    I think it’s kinda rude that you said Adam’s fragrance ad is weird.
    If you knew anything about him, you’d realize that’s just who he is. He hates anything overused, or overdone, and is, in general, overtly sexual.
    I really don’t understand why you’d feel the need to tear a 34-year-old man down (on your **fashion** blog) for trying something new, making something of himself, and being proud of it.
    So that’s my two cents. Travis–Boots–is a directorial genius, and I like what they did with the video.

    Rose and Kristine – Glad you liked! Ahh I miss the days of their movies and TV shows together. (Also, I’ve tried to find So Little Time on Netflix and they only have, like, one of the DVDs. Sadness!)

    Simply Luxurious – No problem! Great post :)

    Bee – Aaah, apologies! I totally didn’t mean it as a teardown; I was trying to say that the video was atypical for celeb fragrances, not that it was bad, but it didn’t come across right. I’ll re-word it. Nothing but love for AL! It’s a cool video.

    No matter if some one searches for his vital thing, thus he/she wants to be available that in detail, thus that
    thing is maintained over here.
