Ann Taylor Signature Fragrance

Ann Taylor Fragrance

I can feel the magic in the air. The magic that soon it will be March and warmer temperatures. In the meantime I am dreaming of magnolia, vanilla, and musk. It’s all wrapped in the reality of Ann Taylor’s Signature Fragrance. Years ago I worked at Ann Taylor when it was just clothes and shoes […]

Calyx is Back and It’s a Good Thing

Clinique Calyx

Calyx, I could write a sonnet or haiku on how much I’m glad you are back in the beauty world. I remember my first bottle. It was originally by Prescriptives and my mom purchased it from Foley’s (now Macy’s). I remember thinking it smells fresh. As if my skin was doused in fresh laundry scented […]

Chanel No. 5 Intense Bath Oil

Chanel No. 5 Intense Bath Oil

  Lately my insomnia has reared her ugly head. I go to bed yawning and ready for sleep, but at 4 a.m. on the dot I’m wide awake. I know I’m only getting 5-6 hours and for me that is not enough. I try to will myself to go back to sleep, but 30 minutes […]

Le Weekend

Le Weekend Collage

Has the week been long for you? It seems it has been extra long for me. I know we gained an hour of sleep, but part of me still feels like I need an additional hour. I’m having lunch a good friend at one of my favorite hangouts in DC, Union Market. We both love […]

Dolce & Gabbana Desire Fragrance

D&G Desire Fragrance

Dolce & Gabbana’s Desire has been in the fragrance arsenal for a few months. I don’t understand why I’ve waited so long to write about it. I love this scent. It has notes of Indian tuberose, bergamot, sandalwood and musk. The packaging doesn’t hurt and I found myself wanting to dive so deep in this […]

Jo Malone Peony & Blush Suede

I am blessed to live in an area with some of the most amazing yoga teachers. I try to support the various teachers, but I do have a fondness for a few. One of my favorite fellow Sagittarius teachers happens to be scent obsessed like me. Post yoga class it’s always a discuss on our […]

AndTheMountainsEchoed-cvr-thumb

The year is flying by so fast. It’s like I blinked and it’s June. I am so excited for summer and I don’t mind the heat. At all. I can’t complain about the heat because I will take 90 degrees and humid over 20 degrees and freezing. I am excited to be traveling home to […]
