Spring/Summer Fragrance

Hi everyone, welcome back! I’ve been planning on this post for a while, hoping the weather would warm up, but once again, today is a cool, dreary, rainy day 😦 But I  know the warm weather HAS to be on its way! So today I am sharing my favorite fragrances for spring and summer! When it comes to fragrance, I am usually drawn to woody scents that are more suitable for fall and winter, but I have three fragrances that I am obsessed with for summer season! All three are very different, and maybe this will help you if you are looking for a new scent!


Bobbi Brown “Beach” – This scent could not have been more perfectly named. It literally smells like a day at the beach. I know some people do not like this scent because it has a “suntan lotion” type of smell, but that is what I love! The main notes are: jasmine, sea spray, and mandarin. I just love this scent, and its perfect for a vacation, or just a hot summer day! This was the only scent I took on a recent vacation to Jamaica and it was perfect to spray on night and I smelled like I had just spent the day at the beach (which I had) 🙂

Clinique “Happy in Bloom” – This scent is very different than the first one. This is more of a floral (as the name implies). The notes are: Yellow Plum, Watery Green Notes, White Freesia. I love this scent because it is very clean and fresh with a little bit of floral. Perfect for a spring day and perfect for everyday wear.

Philosophy “Pure Grace Summer” – Now this one seems like it may be similar to Bobbi Brown “Beach”, but where that one smells like a “beach day”, this one captures more of a “summer day”. It is not sunscreen smelling, which some people may prefer. But you still get a slight hint of coconut mixed with almost a fruity and fresh smell. (This one is so hard to describe!). The notes are: Bergamot, Coconut Water, Citron Zest, Dune Rose, Cocoa Absolute, Solar Musk, Sandalwood, Vanilla.

So those are my three favorite scents for spring/summer! I know everybody has different tastes, but these are just some ideas if you are looking for a new fragrance! Another tip I want to point out is that if you are unsure of a scent, check to see if it comes in a rollerball or travel spray. I often buy scents in the rollerball if I want to try out a fragrance before splurging on the full size, or also because they are handing for your purse/travel bag. And also, lets be honest, how often do we go through a full size fragrance!?

I hope you enjoyed this post, have a great weekend!

July Favorites

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend 🙂 I’m not going to start this post by talking about how it’s already August, so let’s just get right into what I’ve been loving in July!



Bobbi Brown ‘Beach’ Perfume – This has been my go-to perfume all month…I cannot stop wearing it! It smells like summer in a bottle! It is also very long lasting, and I love when I catch a whiff of it several hours later 🙂


Maybelline Dream Bronze BB Cream – I did a review on this a while ago, but I have bee especially loving it this month.I haven’t really worn a lot of heavy face makeup, so this is perfect for a sheer coverage, but it adds just the right amount of bronzy glow!


Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara – When I first got this mascara, I wasn’t too sure about it. But after using it for a few months, I am really loving it! It gives me nice length, and I love the rubber bristles!


Hippie Runner Headband –  If you have never heard of this website, you NEED to check them out! These are my new favorite headbands of all time. They come in tons of cute colors/prints and most importantly, they STAY IN PLACE! *Bonus – right now they are running a sale Buy 2, Get 1 Free!! (I am not sponsored by them.. I bought my headbands with my own money. I just love them that much!)


Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer – This shade is always a bit too dark for me to wear in the winter, but it has been perfect for summer! I love the way it goes on, and of course, it smells like chocolate!IMG_4363

MAC Lipglass in ‘Nymphette’ – I picked this up a while ago as a birthday treat to myself, and I love it! First off, I love the vanilla scent of these lip glosses, and this color is just the perfect pink to wear on its own or over top of a nude/pink lipstick.

Thanks for stopping by! Let me know what your favorites have been in Juily!
