Dusita is a new(ish) French perfume house (with roots in Thailand) that all my perfume blogger friends have been talking about. The brand isn’t available in person in NYC and I’ve been trying to refrain from buying samples, I didn’t rush on the bandwagon and try the scents.

I’m a quirky one. A few years ago, I decided that I was only going to wear “red juice’¹.

Question of the Week: If you could splurge on one luxury beauty treatment (think facial, salon visit, massage etc.), what would it be?
