I’m posting this late because I was prepping for Rose Week. Then there was Rose Week. And then mid-terms hit and I’ve been crazy busy. I’m finally attempting to post my January Favorites.
Most of January was very chill. I enjoyed having a break from classes. I ended up getting a lot accomplished such as reorganizing my closet, donating stuff I no longer use/need and catching up on work stuff. My break was chill but it was also really… Continue reading | 20 Comments
Belle Fleur Mimosa Magnifica is a fragrance in their Classic Floral Collection. I expected for Mimosa Magnifica to be a pretty, powdery and delicate floral.
