I know it’s early, but I never really get myself anything and I think the last big purchase I’ve made for myself was my gym membership.  This year I’m going to be fancy.  Behold, my birthday present to myself:

To Me From Me

I have until December before my bank account will take the hit.  I can’t wait! 🙂

Sweet Smells & Sweet Thoughts – Lara September 17, 2009

So I ran out of perfume and now I have the task of trying to figure out whether I want to try out a new scent or stick to my original.  If I choose to try a new scent, I’m met with the daunting task of finding that “perfect scent”.  This entails going to the store, smelling various perfumes, choosing my favorites, and spraying them on opposing writs.  Then I spend the day wearing said scents to see if it’s a long term love or one of those scents that give me a head ache after prolonged wear.

Of course I could always stick to the scent I ran out of, but what’s the fun in that?

So the scent I ran out of is the Nanette Lepore Fragrance, and to be honest, the thing that drew me to this scent in the first place was the bottle.

Nanette Lepore

The scent is sweet with white peach and white cranberry juices and has notes of orange jasmine, Persian lime nectar, and black currant.  And once the fragrance sets, incomes the violet petals!  Super girly, super fun, and just makes me feel good when I put it on.

A few scents that have tickled my fancy are:

Maybe BabyBspot

Benefit’s Maybe Baby and B Spot.  However, when I put both on opposing wrists one gave me a headache.  Now I have to figure out which one it was.

But I still want to try Michael Kors’ Very Hollywood and Marc Jacobs’ Lola.  According to Sephora, both have a sweet floral scents and I loveee florals!

Or maybe it’s just the fun bottles that peak my interest.
