I’ve talked about how much I love roses before and I’ve recently realized that I use it A LOT in my beauty routine. It makes me feel so feminine and sexy! I mean, the scent of a red rose basically has super powers in my mind! Do any of you have a scent that makes you feel wonderful?

1) INTARSIA SWEATERS
I love sweaters. Period. Do I really need to say more? This year, the trend is heading towards intarsia sweaters. All that means is a picture is knitted into the sweater rather than embroidered or ironed onto it. It’s so much fun!! You can basically pick anything that makes to happy for this trend. I tend to be partial to sky prints, animals, and faces. Here are a few of the ones I’m currently lusting over. (Click the image for details)
2) CND SOLAR SPEED SPRAY
CND’s Solar Spreed Spray has been my at-home mani savior! I had this used once during a professional manicure to help set my polish and I knew I had to have it!!

4) THE RETURN OF REVOLUTION
It’s hard to imagine living in a world without power. Life as we know it would change forever. That’s exactly what happened on NBC’s Revolution. I absolutely love this show for the action, suspense, and strong women fighting for what they believe in. It’s back this Wednesday, September 25th for Season 2. (Check your local listing for times)
5) LONELY PLANET TRAVEL BOOKS
I’m one of those people that buys a travel book every time I go anywhere. I like to have all the tips and tricks right at my finger tips. And they really help to figure out what I want to do while I’m on my trip. There’s always something in there I wouldn’t have thought about myself. I’ve found Lonely Planet does the best job covering everything. I just ordered a new one for an upcoming trip but that’s a secret!! 🙂 You’re welcome to guess where to if you like though!
“A woman’s perfume tells more about her than her handwriting.” – Christian Dior
I used to be the type of girl who didn’t like perfume. It’s such a personal thing and I never found one I could identify with. My fear with perfume was that I’d choose one that people associated with someone else or that they didn’t like. I used to know a girl in college who wore the same perfume as my grandma! It was something that was really hard for me to get past!
My reservations with perfume melted away with my first test of Jo Malone’s Red Roses Cologne. It actually smells like a gorgeous fresh bouquet of roses. I have yet to meet anybody that doesn’t like the smell of roses! Now I’ve become the girl that uses perfume as the ultimate accessory. One spritz before walking out the door and my look is complete.
