Fragrances I’m Currently Loving

Spring is among us…what a lovely feeling! Now that chemo is over, I’ve been falling in love with fragrances all over again. I’ve found it kind of difficult to get into scents with a lot of notes that is, I’ve been loving simple basic scents that aren’t hard to dry down or figure out.

Here are a few that I’ve been loving and keeping in my handbag…

Pure Soap-Oh! This smells EXACTLY like my Ivory soap shower gel. So clean and fresh! Long lasting and perfect for everyday use!

Clean Skin-This one is so clean, soft and feminine. This is another scent that’s not overpowering and it’s great for daytime. I recommend this one for anyone fighting cancer looking to continue their use of daily fragrance.

Laundromat-Oh this one is absolutely love. Yet another clean scent (can you tell I’m slightly obsessed with clean scents?), it’s so fresh yet subtle.

Frozen Pond-This is a personal favorite of mine to wear on cold Spring days. I got this just as we were entering Springtime but this one is great for Wintertime as well. It’s slightly aquatic and fresh. To me, it smells like a cold early morning–the kind of day where you feel as though you’re ready to conquer the world.

Mr. Bubble-I take baths everyday to relax my muscles so I’m always using Mr. Bubble in my bath. What’s better than a Mr. Bubble bubble bath? Smelling like Mr. Bubble! Yes! Another personal fave of mine, Mr. Bubble is fresh and clean. It’s a spot on dupe of the bubble bath.

All in all, I am a fragrance junkie post cancer and I LOVE it! It makes me feel so fabulous and glam. What are some of your favorite scents?

 

Birthday Wishlist

post1

It’s been a while since I’ve actually blogged. As you know, these past six months have been a whirlwind and a time of transition for me. I’m 16 days post-chemo and I’m feeling good. As I sit here on this dark and dreary day listening to the rain fall, I thought it would be fun to create a wishlist of items I’d like for my birthday.

A few years ago, I don’t know if I would have been THIS excited about shouting from the rooftop that I’m going to be 32 but when you’re affected by cancer, it makes you appreciate every single aspect of life. Growing older is a privilege and I see that now.

So…

DEAR WORLD, I’M TURNING 32 ON MAY 26TH AND I COULDN’T BE HAPPIER!

This birthday is extra special to me because of what I’ve been through these last six months. Chemo is finally over and I’m looking forward to building an empire and giving back to the breast cancer community. Failure is NOT an option. Yay for beautiful new chapters in life!

My current obsession…BOBBI BROWN! Thanks to my good friend Melina, the brand has been my go-to in terms of everyday makeup for me. Beautiful, natural everyday colors. I have three BB palettes and they’re just gorgeous. I have the Art Stick in Nude which I’ve used every single day since my gorgeous friend Melina gifted it to me!

I NEED MORE BOBBI BROWN IN MY LIFE.

CHANEL Large Classic Flap in Lambskin  I used to own a beautiful vintage Double XL Chanel bag. Sadly, I had to sell it to help pay my medical bills due to my breast cancer diagnosis. I thought about re-buying the Double XL but I thought it’d be fun to own something a bit newer and different. It’s still the same classic & timeless design and a piece I’ll be able to wear forever.

The thing I look forward to most is enjoying a day with my family. Family is everything. Materials items are awesome but I’d be nothing without the love and support of my family. But let’s be honest, a little Chanel never hurt nobody. 😉
