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!

November Favorites (and Fail)

Hi everyone! Hope you are all doing well! I can’t believe we are down to the last month in 2015! Crazy!! So today, I will share with you what I’m been loving for the past month (in beauty and lifestyle), and I also have one fail to share 😦 Keep on reading to find out what they are!



Clean perfume in “White Woods”


This is has been my new favorite fall scent! It smells so woodsy (obviously) but it isn’t too overpowering. It has been the perfect everyday scent!

Becca x Jaclyn Hill Shimmering Skin Perfector Palette


Sadly, this palette is no longer available on Sephora’s website, but you can still get Champagne Glow (the middle shade) that was created by YouTuber, Jaclyn Hill. I was excited to pick this up so I could try her highlighter, but I also fell in love with the darkest shade…it makes a gorgeous blush!

Whish “Coconut Milk” Shave Cream & Hair Inhibitor


I don’t typically use a shave cream to shave, I have just always used shower gel. But a co-worker of mine raves about this line, so I thought I would try it out! It makes my legs feel so smooth and I LOVE the smell! As far as a hair inhibitor, I can’t really tell if it’s actually working on that, but regardless, I love it!

Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm in “Natural Mint”


 I received this as a sample from Sephora, and I love it so much, I bought a 4-pack gift set during the VIB sale! My lips get so dry this time of year, and this has helped to make them so soft and smooth! I also love that it has SPF 25 in it and comes in several great flavors!

“Me Before You” by Jojo Moyes


Oh my gosh, I can’t even begin to tell you how much I loved this book. It was one of those “can’t put down, spend an extra ten minutes on the treadmill, it’s so good”. It is the perfect combination of laughter and tears! So good 🙂 There’s a sequel to it, so I can’t wait to read that next!


Philosophy 3-in-1 in “Pumpkin Icing”


I have always loved these 3-in-1 body washes/bubble baths, and I was so excited when I saw the pumpkin. But I cannot STAND the way this smells. I don’t know what it is, but it’s almost too much spice smelling, and not enough sweet. I continue to use it because I like the formula, but the scent is not a win with me 😦

That’s everything! Let me know what you have been loving (or hating) this month!
