Sometimes I want to smell good, at times I want to smell pretty. Yes, there is a fine line between the two. Laundry smells good. Pho smells good. But to smell feminine, clean, and inviting, that’s a wee bit different. I don’t use perfume on most days (don’t want to make all the people in my office go all sniffly,) I rely on body washes + body lotions to create my fragrance. THEFACESHOP actually created a line that works just like that; their Perfume Seed products contain perfume capsules for a lasting fragrance.
If was at Hogwarts, I’d probably be as good as Potions as Neville Longbottom, my fellow Gryffindor(yes, I was just sorted into Gryffindor in Pottermore.) Snape (RIP Alan Rickman) was a scary professor, let’s admit that. In the muggle world, the only potion I’ve been blending is my own custom Demeter Fragrance Library scent. As part of the Canadian Beauty Bloggers Network, I had the lucky opportunity to be
scent sent a few unique fragrances to concoct my own fragrant potion.
If you ‘google’ coconut oil you will definitely end up with a bunch of lists telling you why coconut oil is awesome. The only thing I can think of wrong of a coconut is maybe getting hit by one in the head or cracking one and the water explodes everywhere (been there, done that.) Sometimes when a product like coconut oil is mentioned everywhere, I don’t end up purchasing it since there’s so many brands in different markets and they come in a GIANT container. When I kindly received a sample from Skinny & Co. Coconut Oil, I was excited to finally get my fingers greasy with coconut oil.
The Body Shop gets me giddy every year; the packaging, the deals, and their Holiday collection is oh so pretty, oh so fragrant, and oh so on budget. Luckily for me too, December is my birthday month so I get $10 off with my Love Your Body Card and ended up getting myself some Frosted Plum.
Sitting at a computer for at least 8 hours a day REALLY takes a toll on my shoulder, back, and neck. I’ve been going to massage therapy and doing more stretches, but nothing is more relaxing than a chilling in a bath tub with aromatic scents. Thanks to Weleda’s Arnica Body Care Collection, I’ve been able to re-energize with their Muscle Soak and Shower Gel!
