Hey Everyone!

A scripture that feels good today: Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves.

Romans 12: 10

Bath and Body works has a couple new scents for spring 2011. One of them is called “Carried Away”. I really love this scent. It’s sweet but floraly. Very feminine. The website describes it as ” a blend of lush raspberries, white jasmine and whipped vanilla, inspired by the way love sweeps you off your feet.”

The bottles are very pretty and I love how this packaging is SO VERY SPRING!

If I was to recommend two products from the scented collections I would recommend the perfumes because they’re inexpensive and come in such a variety of delicious scents. The other product I would recommend are the body splash’s because you can use them in your gym bag, or take them to work to give yourself a spritz of something that smells good but is not too overpowering. 🙂

Perfect Scent for Valentines Day- After My Own Heart..INEKE

Hey Guys!

Valentines Day is coming up and Love is always a great thing to celebrate! I will be gone in Kenya during the LOVE day but I’m sure it will be a day to remember. I’ll try to post a blog and tell you guys how I spend my Valentines Day in Kenya. 🙂

Recently, after trying a fragrance sampler from Ineke I discovered a fragrance I LOVE and have never come across one like it. I only had a small vile tube and now I’m dying to get a large bottle of this perfume. It’s called , “After My Own Heart” and the fragrance smells like Fresh Sweet Lilacs. It’s the perfect scent not only for valentines day but for spring!

Isn’t this just perfect for Valentines day?? It has a heart right on the bottle! (Look close.)

“After my own Heart” also includes notes of bergamot, Raspberry, Crisp Green Foliage, Sandlewood, Heliotrope and musk.

I absolutely can’t get enough of this scent. I knew I liked the smell of lilacs but this perfume captures a more complex lilac scent that sweet and delicious.  Go take a look at this fragrance here:




I need to get my hands on this fragrance, it’s one of my absolute favorites I’ve ever tried.


Another product I want to rave about is a rather strange one but it’s dish soapIt’s the Dawn Hand renewal with OLAY beauty. It’s the purple kind scented Lavender Silk. It says it improves the look and feel of hands in 5 uses. I have always had a problem with dish soap because my hands always feel super dried out after hand washing dishes. Since we don’t have a dishwasher , this is rather important to me. This dish soap is the best! My hands never feel too dry after using it and they almost feel better. It says that it “helps winter hands seal in moisture”. And, I’d have to say that it does! BEST HAND SOAP I’VE EVER USED. It smells good too! 🙂

Have a wonderful Monday.

LOVE, Lauren
