Scent of a Woman

Miss Marisa is one of my besties! She is always there for me and is an instant pick me up to my day and special occasions. One of my dearest friends even asked if she could wear her on her wedding day! This is what Lucky Scent has to say about the fragrance, "Everyone knows someone like Miss Marisa. Pretty without working at it, smart without being a show-off. In high school, she was the girl who could hang with anybody - geeks, jocks or the popular crowd. Beloved by all and totally cool. A unique and dazzlingly fresh fragrance with dancing notes of cassis and cool mint. Brilliant. We can’t get enough of this!"

I contacted Lucky Scent to give us tips on how to pick a fragrance out for yourself. This is what Franco has to say, "truly the best way to choose a fragrance is sampling. If you know you like floral, or vanillas, its easy to find such perfumes on our site and order samples-- we recommend only trying 2 at a time (one on each arm), per day, so your nose doesn't get too overwhelmed-- and also gives you adequate time to smell the opening and drydown of a scent. If you are not sure what types of fragrance, we also have categories on our site (left hand navigation), such as 'fresh' or 'unique/exotic'.. which are identifiers that we hope help guide along. And finally, don't be afraid to try new perfumes! Just because it lists musk or patchouli, don't let that deter you if you have pre-conceived ideas about musk or patchouli... you never know!"

This is great advice! I love how you can orders samples from their site. They make great gifts too!

Spotlight: Ephesians 5:1-3 says, " 1Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children 2and live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God. 3But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God's holy people."

Sisters, live a life of love! This is pleasing to the Lord, we are only strangers passing by but we are here to love all who enter into our lives. Leave a fragrant aroma to those around you!

Embellish Yourself

An embellished tee is a not so versatile piece but if your brain doesn't seem to be working when you are getting dressed this is an easy fix. You can wear this casual with jeans, or dress it up with a pencil skirt. You could also put it over a button up and make it super preppy. No matter which way you choose to wear it, you will always feel glamorous!

If you are willing to purchase this beauty (I'm pretty sure this will be out of season soon), you can make one yourself, take a chunky necklace and sew it onto a simple Hane's tee. It will take some playing around with, but I think it will work if you don't have it
in your budget to buy this JCrew version.
Spotlight: 4 One thing I ask of the LORD,
this is what I seek:
that I may dwell in the house of the LORD
all the days of my life,
to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD
and to seek him in his temple.
When you are getting ready in the morning, or whatever time of day remember to praise our God. After all, you are getting ready in His house, and His closet. Everything on this earth that belongs to you is essentially on loan from Him.
