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.

Comfy Cozy Cardigans & Being Grown Up – Lara September 15, 2009

So job searching has been everything but fun. I spend at least one day a week at the library with my best friend studying for the GMATs, sending out my resume, and working on my blog as she takes practice LSAT tests (we’re women with goals!). We like to call this day our “Grown up day”. We wake up, get some food in our system, and work the day away. At the end I always feel a sense of accomplishment (this is compared to my usual days of sleeping in until way past morning and just lounging around the house with the bf).

Regardless of what I may be doing, I always wanted a sweater I could use for various occasions like going to the library, or just bumming it around the house. Something comfy cozy but not sloppy. And lately these have been catching my eye.

Nordstrom Cardigan

This is an oversized open front cardigan at Nordstrom. I love how it’s slouchy and comfortable looking and makes you look cute without looking like you’re trying too hard. Nordstrom sells this one for $48. A sound investment if you ask me (I would throw this thing over every outfit once it starts to get chilly).

Another item I love layering with, VESTS!

ModCloth vest
And this one which is found at Modcloth is super cute! With the vest being lightweight you can layer it over a dress in the summer or use it over jeans and a graphic tee for the fall. I just love the crochet look!

Neiman Marcus

But how amazingly comfortable does this bad boy look?? UGH I want it for the winter. Slip that on while you’re at home, coffee in hand, and curl up with a nice book. . . HEAVEN. I’m salivating just thinking about it. But I am snapped back to reality when I read the price tag of $385. Oh Neiman Marcus, why do you toy with my emotions?

With my limited budget I guess I’m better off just buying a snuggie and turning it backwards. 😛
