Happy Saturday! It’s after midnight (on Friday night) so it really is Saturday…lol. I was watching the Olympics with the fam…and I totally fell asleep on my sofa (shocker). So after washing my face I got my second wind and I’m not sleepy…nooooooo. To be honest I have recently been in a work funk. Wasn’t feeling super inspired or that motivated. I feel like this happens to me every year after the holiday burnout. Well after accepting the fact that it’s normal to go through those feelings…I’ve been able to listen to a lot of podcasts, read some books, recharge and I’m feeling very inspired again!

To help get re-inspired I did a major Spring cleaning! I highly recommend everyone to do that at least once, twice, three times a year! I also made a quick trip to some of my favorite stores to get some new accessories, organizers and pretty display cases. I love this clear glass jewelry box (see above). It’s the perfect way to display your favorite pieces. I found this one at Homegoods but I linked some similar and other favorite options for you below. I’m also big on travel cases for jewelry. I found some really cute ones!
I’m a perfume rookie considering the last bottle I bought was over 10 years ago. I just get so overwhelmed sniffing all the samples and bottles and coffee beans that I’ve avoided perfume shopping for a long time. Well recently I did a little online research before going into the store. And let’s be honest, buying a new fragrance online is nearly impossible. But I loved reading people’s comments & reviews which helped to narrow down some bottles I wanted to test out. I’m very pleased to say that I’m 95% sure I purchased some new fragrances that I will proudly wear!
Here are a couple of things I learned from my recent shopping trip.
1. don’t spray perfume on those paper cards to sample! It is not a true rep of the fragrance. I pretty much only smelled alcohol.
2. Spray the perfume on a kleenex to test or roll your sleeves way up and designate certain sections of your arm to test.
3. Give it a good 10-15 min for the fragrance to develop once you spray it on your skin.
