2016 Robert Goulley Bourgogne Rosé

I keep it cool in the summer with my shades and my rosés. This one is a nice Burgundian one made of 100% Pinot Noir grown just outside of Chablis. Delicate color with a nose of equally delicate pink flowers and white strawberries. Very aromatic on the palate with more of the white strawberries, floral notes, and nice acidity. Nice price and nice wine region. Cheers!

2014 Guy Breton Beaujolais Villages “Cuvée Marylou”

Just a little mid-walk break with this nice little Beaujolais. Bubblegummy on the nose with dried strawberries and fresh red currants. Tart red berries on the palate with hints of bubblegum, red currants, and a hint of pepper. Lively and fun. Like me!

An Ode to the Venus Signs

Aries: The primal lust for power that drives you fuels the spark in your eye and the deceiving lilt in your voice that rears just as you go in for the kill. You will eventually give up being the ever-brave knight and the same cold knife that pierces his heart in exchange for the purity you braved oceans of passion and battles of ferocious kisses in the thundering moonlight for. You will lay down your helmet not in defeat but to unleash a fierce tenderness that no other could ever match. 

 Taurus: You grant your body its right to speak for itself, you’re a lover of few words and infinite complexities. The burgundy wine that pumps through your heart and veins and out through your mouth intoxicates its ever-fortunate victim within minutes. The kisses you allow are accompanied by your luxurious velvet touch that, on its own, is a treasure worthy of an ancient and haunting sea borne melody of lust, deceit, and riches beyond measure. 

Gemini: Yours is an epic poem of magic and thermals thrusting you beyond the clouds and the stars in one flap of your winged self. An intense emotional threshold is accompanied by lighthearted joviality that lets itself be heard through your tinkling laugh late into the night. You are the adventure in any fantasy and the spirit of any angelic presence we have all felt when our wheels of fortune are on their way to the top. 

Cancer: Your gentle caress is the joy finally bubbling up from an exhausted heart. You’re the flower in the gun, the lover that hit the universe. The Valentine’s Day you imagined all those years that finally happened, the ribbon on an exquisite present you almost feel guilty untying. Your quiet devotion is emotional and romantic, crystalline perfection in a tarnished, stone world. 

Leo: The mischievous grin you unveil to the masses is nothing to the intense and yet… Exciting gleam in your eye when you unmask your bad boy disguise and become the gold-hearted danger we all secretly desire. You are the protector of the queen of hearts, jealous though your undying love may be. Somehow with you, the world is perfectly in sync with every breath that is shared, each movement a rhythm of unyielding devotion. 

Virgo: The crease in your brow changes ever so slightly for every different small emotion you allow to the surface. The perfection of each conscious movement and considerate placement of every inch of you is not unnoticed. The free spirit you unleash in your blessed vulnerable moments is the thunder of a rainstorm in a drought, a love with you is one of reincarnation of your lover’s prized memories and dreams plucked from careful observation and secretly tender moments of thought. 

Libra: Your youthful exuberance is open minded with a bright and surprising wisdom. The element of surprise is always packed neatly up your sleeve for when inspiration strikes your wandering mind. Though with light footsteps your travel this road, each movement is meaningful and not as wasteful as it appears to the ignorant eye. Your sweet intentions never turn bitter even in adversity, as your every move matches the most romantic of ideals with ease. 

Scorpio: Trust doesn’t fall into your rigid nature, as you decided it can’t. But how you long for it, to let go of a little control into trustworthy arms that feel of your pillow after a long, hard day. You have the loyalty of the best friend trope and the love of the heroine all contained in the body of what can only be a hero. You do not move quickly, but each stroke of the brush is one of intensity and saturation made with steady hands. The bouts of rash action do not last long, as you already know deep in your soul where you belong. 

Sagittarius: Worldly, exciting, fast and learned are your ways of rash and heated passion. You are jagged bottles wielded by the wild, but each cut of the blade is done out of fun and poisoned only by the cowardly. The jolt of sunshine and fall weather, the fall that tastes golden and slightly crisp, is only the instantaneous reward given before the ride. 

Capricorn: You are the everything you determined they deserve; the want and the need alike. Allowing yourself the pleasure of being the mouse in the game for once, with an ever protective grip on reality all the while. Your intensity is a quiet one, one that doesn’t speak but radiates. It is unyielding and wooden, but alive all the same. Your branches bear fruit that, for once, are willingly plucked with a silent thank you and perhaps a passing smile. Your roots will never cease to grow until the soil is gone and your stomach barren, but until then you are permanent and, most importantly, ever standing.

Aquarius: You take flight without warning, but how any would worship simply seeing you go. A disguised predator in a world of the unwise. But from you comes the pleasure of shrewd sport in the face of those simply surviving. To let your guard down sounds obscene until you allow yourself to understand the truth; the truth that allows you to shed your old and tired skin. Like the snake you are blind before your fresh skin, and you can roll with it or forge a fresh path. 

Pisces: The mysteries of the universe lie within your magnetic eyes and wry smile. Your every move fascinates and alienates and is left for only the dedicated to make sense of. You create a new world for your person, with exquisite detail and an unparalleled sense of wonder. But danger looms in the back of your incredible mind and with the shift of your thoughts you can press the tempting button of self-destruction. Burning bridges is a staple of your watery magic, and you the lone arsonist. Perhaps you could put down the matches, but who’s to say you ever will decide it’s worth it?

2015 Louis Jadot Pouilly-Fuissé

Ohai. I’m drinking Burgundy. It’s pretty nice. My life is pretty nice. Although I’ll never admit it to the hoomans. Between you and me. Meyer lemon, lemon zest, raw almonds, and hazelnuts on the nose. Lemons, grapefruit, and hazelnuts on the palate. Standard, classic, center-of-the-fairway white Burgundy chard, y’all!

BTS reaction to you getting red (or another sexy color) lipstick on their dicks after sucking them off. It can be Smutty AND comic if you prefer, do whatever you want 😁

A/N: Personally, I’m into darker red colours like a wine or burgundy, so I’m going to use that colour, is that alright?

2014 Danjean-Berthoux Mercurey “Les Chavances”

Mmmm… waiter, another bottle of this lovely Burgundy, s’il vous plaît! Cola, peppered strawberries, cranberries, forest floor, tea, and bark on the nose. Lovely on the palate wth red currants, black tea, pomegranate, tarragon, coriander, and a dusting of pepper. Fresh, tart acidity.

Pinot Noir

Côte Chalonnaise (Burgundy), FRANCE

My phone just died and so I had to dig out my old iPhone 5. Found this pic on it from that time in 2014 when I got to hold a bottle of 1998 Romanee-Conti for a few seconds - wish I could have tasted it as well 😍🍷
(This is pretty much the holy grail of Pinot Noir and very few people can afford it, in case you are wondering what all the hoopla is all about)

and i said to my body, softly

Written for Day 4 of NurseyDex Week 2017 - “Gender/Sexuality Headcanons”

The bottle calls the color “Amore at the Red Canal”.

Nursey picks it up at CVS almost on a whim, when he stops in to restock on toothpaste and get a new nail file–he lost his on a roadie–and the color catches his eye. It’s not his usual shade at all. When he paints his nails (only his toes; Samwell’s an accepting place, but there are enough assholes around that he’s not ready to put himself all the way out there), he tends to go for paler shades: usually pastels, gentle lavenders and pinks and yellows, soft colors meant to soothe him the itching under his skin when he goes too long with a beard on his cheeks.

But the red makes him stop, makes him hesitate. It’s not a cherry red or a fire-engine red or anything like that; it’s a deep, almost burgundy shade. Nursey’s had wine this color, has sipped it at dinners with his moms and at fundraisers with his dad, has felt the way it settles warm and thrilling in his veins.

There’s something seductive about it, and he knows that’s a tired old trope, but he runs his thumb over the side of the bottle anyway, and then tosses it into his basket with his toothpaste.

Dear Auntie Jilli, I was wondering what hair dye you use? It always seems to be beautifully bright and doesn't really fade when we get to see your wonderful face! (Is it an Eldergoth Cabal secret? Fab hair only for the Chosen Few? 👿)

Aww, thank you! I think part of the brightness is due to the grey/white strands really grabbing and holding my dye.

I use a 50/50 mix of Manic Panic “Vampire Red” and Special Effects “Burgundy Wine”. I apply it, put a plastic cap on my head, and leave it on for about 3 hours. Then I rinse (rinse, rinse, and rinse some more) with cool water, then do one final rinse with cool water mixed with a bit of apple cider vinegar.

I add about 1-2 teaspoons of my dye mix to my shampoo and conditioner, so I’m refreshing the color when I wash my hair. (Also, I only wash my hair once a week.) (Yes, I’m one of those people. But I don’t actually use a lot of hair products, so I don’t have to worry about product buildup.)

Aaaaand I made myself some custom dry shampoo! 

  •  1/2 cup of arrowroot powder (tho’ you can use cornstarch).
  • A few drops of BPAL Blood Popsicle. (Because of course I want my hair to smell like Blood Popsicle).
  • A bunch of burgundy, red, and bright pink eye shadow pigments that were not quite the shade I wanted for makeup. (And a dash of pink glitter. Because why not?)

I mixed all of that together in a ziplock bag, then decanted it into an empty jar. I apply it to my roots with a blush brush, then vigorously brush my hair. The burgundy/pink color of my custom dry shampoo means I don’t get that weird ashy-powdery look that regular dry shampoos leave on wacky-colored hair. And leaves the tiniest trace of glitter, which is important, dammit.
