I’m back from a short holiday hiatus ready & refreshed to create some great content for you this year! But before we get into that, let’s rewind & remember some of the best posts of 2017. Make sure you leave a comment below to tell me which post was your favorite last year, & what you want to see more of this year! Enjoy this little walk down memory lane!
Man, it feels like forever since my last Friday Five! I hope you all are having a great week so far. I wanted to leave this post for you today, while I am currently on a bus heading to the Outer Banks for my first tour stop of the season. (Follow me on tour via my Instagram story!) Over the moon just thinking about performing again.
But back to this post…it’s no secret that this summer my love for rose scented things has exploded. Today I have gathered up some of my favorite products for you & I want to specifically talk about five stand outs.
This product is a holy grail in my skincare routine. I use this oil every 3 days mixed into my night cream for extra moisture. This oil is such a perfect match for my skin. I always look forward to using this beautiful product. (Btw, updated skincare routine coming soon.)
I purchased this candle in Paris earlier this summer, & boy is it dreamy! It’s the perfect floral scent that fills the entire room. The best part…the smell lingers without even being lit! Such a great addition to my desk.
This mist is my go-to when my face just needs that extra something. The mister on this bottle is perfection, as long as you hold your breath while spraying. It’s hydrating without leaving any residue on the skin, & the scent…to die for!
This gloss is my secret weapon. It’s such a gorgeous shade of pink with the perfect amount of shimmer. You can always find this gloss in my purse because it instantly dresses up any outfit for whatever unexpected events come my way. One of my all time favorites.
I spoke about this yummy tea in my Africa post earlier this summer, and have been drinking it ever since. I first fell in love with this tea at a museum cafe in Benin, & then finally purchased some while in Paris. It’s floral, without being too floral, & just so refreshing. With fall just around the corner & Tea Time Tuesdays approaching, I know this tea is here to stay!
I had such an amazing summer of travel as well as spending some much needed time with family; however, I was not expecting to be gone from the blog for so long. After taking some much needed time to refresh and gather some inspiration, I am back, & so ready to get back to blogging every week! I’m very excited to share with you some things I have been working on while I’ve been gone.
Today, I wanted to share with you some of the looks I’ve been posting on Instagram lately.
The other day, I decided to light a candle I hadn’t lit since the previous summer. Immediately, I was flooded with memories of fresh flowers, long walks, summer nights, making fresh smoothies, & warm weather for days. I discovered that I had found my summer home scent! I found this delicious candle at Target, so you know it’s totally affordable. The scent is called Peony Petals…how could it not be amazing?! It’s fruity floral scent fills the entire room & just feels like summer. I recently finished last year’s large candle & bought 2 more so I never go out. This dreamy scent is available in a variety of sizes & styles making it perfect for any home. Add this scent to your summer candle collection today!
I’m so excited to announce that it’s GIVEAWAY TIME!
