Favorite Winter Perfumes


Hi everyone! Hope you are all doing swell! With the season in full Winter swing ( well as much as it can be here in Florida) I really take the time to enjoy some of my more wintery or heavier (if that even makes sense to you) perfumes. Living in Sunny South Florida we don’t really get any sort of winter and therefore the scents I usually use are light and airy just like the weather. So in order for me to make myself feel more in the Holiday/ Winter spirit I like to change it up and use some of my other favorites. Each of these is so different from one another so it really is hard to pick a favorite. Plus I enjoy that because they are all so different from one another that it allows me to enjoy all of my favorite notes in each without having tons of the same kind. I hope you all enjoyed this as much I did sharing it with you all! If you some of you have been following me for a while then you may have picked up on how much of a perfume fanatic I am so I really do enjoy doing perfume articles! I would love to see what some of your favorites are so please share!!!!

March Wishlist

Like many others I have such a love hate relationship with online shopping. There are just so many websites filled with cute and must have items that it gets a bit overwhelming. This month I wanted to share with all of you some of the items that I am currently drooling over and now need to wipe up my computer hehe =). But truly I am really excited about all of the fun colors that have most of the country counting down the days till Spring. Hope you all enjoy and can’t wait to see what you all think.

Fall Fashion- Florida Edition

Hi all! I am beyond excited for it to be fall and all of the fun and exciting fashion that comes with it. Now unfortunately I live in a climate that isn’t very conducive to sport these fabulous trends so I mostly just admire from afar (sad I know). So this year I have set out to try and find some fun fall inspired clothing that all of my southern climate fashionistas can sport and not be drenched in sweat! I hope you enjoy these picks and I am looking forward to finding some more for you all and would love to see some of your choices!

Bucket Bags

I must confess I have been coveting bucket bags lately, I don’t know why but I just find them so cool and yet incredibly practical. I mean hello bucket is in the name and what doesn’t a bucket hold! Now bucket bags are nothing new to fashion, they always come in and out of fashion and always come back a little more refined or reminiscent of the times. With an upcoming vacation of mine on the horizon I was looking to pick up a bag that I could throw all the essentials I needed for a day into and yet something that I didn’t mind being banged around. Unfortunately all of the bags I seemed to have gravitated to were really out of the budget I had set for myself. I tend to not like to spend a lot on items that are more in trend and something that may not be around for a while. So after what seems like weeks worth of searching I decided to share some of my favorite finds with all of you (or the ones who share the love of this bag as much as I do)! And the best part is that they are all under $100! Hope you all enjoy!!!
