Ohh la la!




I'm a stinker for smells if you know what I mean. Everything from our shampoo and conditioner to our coffee have to smell a certain way to be sure! What's the deciding factor about anything at our house? "HOW DOES IT SMELL?" So, If you can believe it, I had a free moment with out kids yesterday. I made a dash for my favorite coffee house and then took a quick stroll over to our local beauty supply. They have the cutest soaps and perfumes. My recent favorite LoLLia perfume was a gift to myself for Mothers Day last year. This year I have my eye on their new line of perfumes which are pretty budget friendly at $28. Although wanting to buy the entire line is a budget killer! Their newest (new to me at least! I don't get out much!) line is called ToykoMilk and have scents like Paper and Cotton, Let Them Eat Cake and my favorite... Kabuki! There were a few missing from the series that I didn't get to smell so I'll be back. The bottles are the cutest ever and have images of birds, butterflies, THE EIFFEL TOWER! Sadly their their "French Kiss" didn't draw me in, but OH! That bottle! And if there is a second deciding factor about something, it's the divine packaging that will win us over...

I'm with you on smell. Shhh...sometimes I even revel in the nasty earthy smells we avoid just because it's like the best adventure :)

Me too! I actually love skunk smell but only from a distance. We were driving down the street a few weeks back and someone had just cut their grass and the air was thick with that fantastic smell to which my hubby and I said at the same time "MMMmmmm! Fresh cut grass!" and my seven year old says "It doesn't smell so fresh to me!?!" I guess the beauty is in the nose of the beholder!

I LOVE French Perfune. I went to Paris, and the FIRST thing I purchased was perfume! Oh, I took my first bits of jewelry to a local shop that is going to sell them for me. Two necklace sets were made with your square lotus pendents! Lovely! The shop owner LOVED them!
