Plum Crazy: A Plum Fragrance Guide

I love plums. We have a plum tree in the backyard and this spring brought us the most amazing aroma of plum blossoms. Plus, the tree has been just beautiful when covered with blossoms. It’s been quite a view from my pink boudoir. I also love the aroma of the juicy fruit. Stone fruits really add to a fragrance. A plum has a richness that others do not, plus it lacks the “fuzziness” of peaches. It mixes well with florals and spices. Hey, it even mixes well with seaweed. I… Continue reading | 1 Comment

A Cheery Cherry Fragrance Guide

I can’t wear cherry fragrances because my husband says that I smell like a urinal cake if I do. Since I spend no time in a men’s restroom, I can’t contest. I just have to take his word for it. Fortunately, you don’t just have to smell like a cherry jolly rancher when it comes to cherry. There are many cherry blends and cherry blossom fragrances on the market. I’ve made a list of cherry fruit and cherry blossom fragrances in many price points.

Burt’s Bees Peach & Willowbark Deep Pore Scrub Review

I am aware that writing a review of a skincare item is a bit of a waste of time. Skin types and needs vary so much from person to person. This scrub just did not work for me at all.

One thing that I learned from doing makeup was that people that exfoliated… Continue reading | 2 Comments

New Crazylibellule & The Poppies Crazystick: 26 Juin Ile d’Yeu

CrazyStick Cologne

Crazylibellule and The Poppies are launching a new crazystick, 26 Juin Ile d’Yeu on July 15th. This is a solid form based on those L’Eau de CrazyCologne sprays. I’m siked because not only is the packaging adorable, romantic, and vintage but because there is a new formula that is supposed to be less waxy than the other sticks. It is a transparent and smooth formula that is still good for the skin paraben and alcohol-free. I love all of my Craylibellule sticks, but
