Choosing Your Signature Scent and Packing it With You Anywhere You Go

Finding the right scent is not always easy, with so many perfumes and colognes on the market sometimes it’s really hard to choose especially when the prices can be pretty steep. Here are a few tips on how to pick the right scent for you as well as a great accessory in which to store your perfume or cologne while traveling or even on a daily basis.  

Let’s begin with how to choose a scent and afterwards I will give you an example of my favorite one. If you are enjoying this post so far give it a like so I know:) Also just a disclaimer, this is not an ad, just something I wanted to share. 

1. Before you even go into the store, you need to think about what it is that you like. Do you prefer light, floral scents, or do you crave a bit of a citrus. There are many categories to choose from. Once you decide on a starting point you can then begin looking into certain brands.  

2. Next spritz a few samples on bare skin. In order to get the most realistic sense of the scent it must mix with your own skin, the chemicals each person produces is different so it may smell great on paper but you may not like it so much on your skin. Don’t be afraid to test out as many samples as possible. Having a wide variety to choose from is a great oppurtunity to discover something new. 

3. Finally narrow it down to your favorites. It could be one, two or even more. Don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone. If you like something you normally wouldn’t wear, purchase a sample size. That way you have the opportunity to decide how much you really like it and then go back for the larger size.

Now if you can’t quite decide on a scent right then and there here is a tip. Most stores with a perfume department offer samplers. An assortment of perfumes which allow you to test out several for the price of one. What I like about these samplers is that they aren’t too expensive and the containers in which they come are travel size. I always like to refresh my perfume towards the middle of the day because I feel like it wears off and these are perfect to carry with me on a daily basis.

This particular one is from Sephora. It comes with seventeen popular brands and can also be purchased as a gift. withy Valentine’s Day just around the corner, this is a great gift to buy. This particular one is $65.00, I would say that is a reasonable price for 17 different scents. However there are other options less expensive and with less options because it can be a little intimidatig deciding between 17 scents. I usually buy them individually and they come out to be pricey per item therefore I prefer to purchase sets such as these. 


Now in the situation that you choose a scent which you absolutely adore and you want to carry it around with you everywhere but do not have any desire to lug around the whole bottle or constantly pay for the travel size, I introduce to you the Travalo. This accessory has become a must have in my everyday life. A refillable perfume container which is TSA approved and can be replenished directly from the original bottle. It comes in  variety of colors therefore everyone can choose the color that fits them best.  I have to say I am completely obsessed with this item.

Keep Your Skin Hydrated with Vitamin E

As much as I love winter weather, cold air always dries my skin out. Finding products that hydrate my skin without leaving it feeling oily or heavy is always a challenge. Luckily, The Body Shop has a skin care line which does both. The Vitamin E has several products which can be used together or separately depending on your needs.

Let’s begin with the face wash. The consistency is gel like with a light scent. It foams really nicely when mixed with a bit of water leaving your skin feeling soft and dewy. Don’t be afraid of using it daily as the formula is very gentle on the skin.Next we have the Hydrating Toner. Let me tell you, no matter how diligently you wash your face, traces of makeup and oils are still left behind. Toners also assist in shrinking pores, and restoring the pH balance after washing your face. Even the most gentle cleaner have the tendency to dry out your skin so restoring the balance quickly is important so your skin doesn’t freak out and start overproducing oil.This night cream is by far my favorite. Although it has a thick consistency, I don’t feel any heaviness the following morning. It absorbs well into the skin leaving my face silky soft in the morning.Last but not least, under eye cream. I personally have always experienced dark circles under my eyes, whether it is from lack of sleep or I am just genetically predisposed to puffy eyes, who knows. But the fact is they aren’t attractive and applying the cream before bed reduces the puffiness in the morning leaving me much happier.If you enjoyed reading this post give it a 👍

Summer-Sault Into Fall

Summer may be over, but it is still extremely warm here in Southern California. The only down side of living here is not being able to experience all four seasons. But the bright side is that the closer we get to winter time, the cooler the weather especially in the evenings. I can finally pull out my warm clothes, I have been dying to wear this warm overall dress which I purchased a few years ago in a small boutique store. I have seen similar styles in stores like Forever 21 and H&M as well. This dress is comfortable and casual yet still looks put together. I decided to wear it two different ways because it’s not overly heavy to wear during the warmer months. The first look I paired a pair of suede brown Vince Camuto lace-up sandals which I purchased at Nordstrom. The dress didn’t come with a belt, but I loved the cinched look at the waist so I added a belt that I previously owned. It is a very simple brown belt. My necklace is a choker like design made in a deep purple and green color glass from H&M. I thought it tied the look together very well.

The second look is for the colder months. I added a black turtleneck underneath which I purchase from Forever 21 and my knee high boots are from Nordstrom rack and the brand is Catherine Malandrino. < em>Also comment below and tell me your favorite fall piece🍁

Autumn Inspiration

Happy Fall lovelies,

How I love this season, after a long hot summer it is so refreshing to feel the cool breeze the leaves changing color. I love being able to drink hot chocolate and attend fall festivals. But most of all I love coming home and putting on some comfortable clothes and relaxing with a book or watching a good movie. These are the little moments in life that truly fulfill me. I love to cook and bake and one of my favorite things to make is homemade hot chocolate with whipped cream. Believe it or not it is really simple and considerable healthier than store brought whipped cream. All you need is 6 ingredients:

2 egg whites

1/2 cup  Sugar

Cocoa Powder

Milk (Could be any kind, almond or soy)

1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract

1 Teaspoon cinnamon powder, or nutmeg


To make whipped cream:

Place egg whites, sugar and vanilla into a bowl and whisk on high-speed until stiff peaks form, about 1 minute. 

To make hot chocolate:

Pour milk into a small pot, add cocoa powder and stir until it becomes an even consistency.

Pour hot chocolate into a cup, scoop whipped cream on top, sprinkle with cinnamon or nut meg and settle down into a chair to relax and enjoy.

Sweater Dress Look

Hello everyone,

It is officially Fall season and I am stoked. I love how the weather changes, the leaves start changing color and the weather feels a little crisper. Walking down the street and seeing the decorations in the front yards remind me of the festivities ahead. Most of all I love being able to wear warmer clothes even though sadly,  it rarely gets cold enough to wear anything too warm in California. This look in particular is simple and easy to put together to achieve a sophisticated outfit. I am wearing a sleeveless sweater dress from Papaya. My black jacket is from Bebe and my booties are Cole Haan’s. The tights are from Target and the cool thing about them is that they have the sock like look already attached to them so they are a two-in-one piece which is so convenient because it doesn’t feel too bulky.



I would love to hear some of your Fall outfit ideas, comment below and tell me what you think.

June Gloom No More- 4 Items That Kept My Skin Happy This Month


Humidity and cloudiness, not the best combination for the skin. Humid weather dries my skin  out, and cloudy weather makes me feel like I don’t need to wear sunscreen when in fact, those hidden UV rays are the worst perpetrators for aging skin. Fortunately, here some products that work well for me and keep the June gloom away.


This Vitamin C glow-protect lotion is light and easy to apply. It smells delicious, a mixture of tangerines and vanilla. The texture is a bit on the thicker side due to it being a combination of moisterizer and sunscreen, but the glowing effect is worth it. 


The Jane Iredale hydration spray works as a two in one product which is why I go through it so fast. It could be use a make-up settingb spray as well as a light mist which hydrates your skin after a long day in the sun. This spray leaves you feeling cool and your skin silky smooth. The refreshing rose scent helps me feel calm and relaxed.

Serums are most effective after cleansing your skin but before applying moisterizer. It penetrate your skin with ingrediants which contribute to healthier skin. This one in particular is my number one choice. Why? It is made of all natural ingrediants so I do not feel like I am applying chemicals to my skin. The rose hips and green tea give it a sweet smelling scent yet not overbearing to the senses. The vitamin C reduces inflammation and promotes collegen repair. 


This Rodial face cream indeed feels like pure velvet on the skin. Applies easily without leaving a heavy residue on the face, it dries quickly and leaves your face refreshed and dewy. I love to use it overnight because it absorbs well into the skin but it works quite well as a day cream as well. 

That’s all for now loves! What are some of your favorite facial products?

Don’t Be Afraid, Be Bold

 When I saw this fiery, floral crop top I just knew I had to have it. Bold and beautiful, this shirt is the perfect statement piece. Worn together with a pair of my favorite jeans and my Sam Edelman sandals I feel chic with a touch of bohemian vibes.


The jeans I am currently wearing are from the store Cotton On. I am obsessed with their bottoms because they are very form fitting. Sometimes it is hard find a pair of jeans that flatter my shape. (Jean shopping is definitely a bit stressful sometimes ;)). 


My shoes are a pair of dark orange Sam Edelman sandals which I purchased at Nordstrom Rack. I love detailing, whether it is on shoes or clothes and the diamond-shaped silver pins immediately drew my attention. The fact that they are super soft and comfortable to walk in sealed the deal. They were mine for the taking.  On my wrist I am wearing an assortment of multi-colored bangles. I purchased these at Forever 21. The choker around my neck is a dark brown and was purchased at h&m. 


I added a thin gold chain around my waist to give my waist a bit of glitz.
