Hello readers, what’s your favorite perfume? I don’t really have one. I usually just use gifts but not overly so. There have been perfumes sitting around for years because I wanted to “save” them.

He … Continue reading Tree to Tub

Hey readers, do you get dry skin? I was originally going to post my monthly picks today, but Vina over at Chimocolate posted about her pretty L’Occitane serum. So I thought I should post about this nifty On-the-Go Hydration Kit that I was able to snag. It contains 3 product minis and came with L’Occitane’s usual 3 free samples. My skin, just like my hair … Continue reading L’Occitane On-the-Go Hydration
