Special Day!

It’s someone’s birthday today and I have a special note for the birthday girl (you’ll have to excuse the love-y/mushy nature of this post).

I just want to start by saying happy birthday to Neisha!  We have been through a lot together despite our age difference.  Ever since we have both been back under the same roof, we have grown so much closer to each other and I feel like we have helped each other grow.  I am so glad that I have been able to witness your transformation into the woman you are today! Can’t wait to see what the future holds for you! Love you!

Spring, time to get organized!

Happy Easter! I know I am a day late but I hope everyone enjoyed their Easter weekend, and were able to celebrate with friends and family. My family and I enjoyed a very relaxing Easter brunch with a few loved ones, it was perfect!

Well every year around this time I feel the need to get rid of the old and make room for the new and this year is no different. I am getting ready to do a major spring cleaning and before I started I wanted to gather some helpful tips to make my cleaning the most efficient. I found this great website with wonderful advice on organizing and cleaning and I thought I would share it with all of you. The website is called “Get Organized Now”, perfect name right? I recommend if you have time to go there before you begin.

Organizing is one of my favorite things to do and I have actually thought about being a professional organizer. I love the idea of taking chaos and forcing it to make sense. Personally my idea of organizing is that everything has a place to belong, so when something is out of place it is noticeable and it can be put back. Below are a few pictures that depict my idea of organizing and hopefully they will inspire you to take the step and begin organizing that room/draw/closet that you have been wanting to tackle for months!

Bespoke is the new name of the game! Everything is moving towards a perfect fit and being custom made, and why should your fragrance be any different? Just in time for the changing weather, Commodity is offering just that.  Aimed to change the way we try and buy our fragrances, Commodity is “Premium scents tailored to your style and delivered to your door.”

Their process is streamlined and simple. They send you mini samples of each of their 10 scents (different scents for men and women), you wear each scent for a day, and once you decide which scents you like you simply pick what size you want and poof! It shows up at your door.

Now I haven’t gotten a chance to smell the scents yet, but they have some that sound like they smell great. For the men they have scents such as whiskey, cane and book while for the ladies they feature scents tea, pinot and magnolia among others. There are also a few unisex scents, which are wool, moss, gold and paper.  And if that was a little too many options for you, they will help you find your scent profile and choose scents based on your style.

As a cherry on top, they do all of this for less than you would pay for a simple bottle at a high-end retailer.  A set of three 30ml roller bottles and a carrying case is only $50!

And just in case you still need convincing to try Commodity out, here are three more fun facts:

  1. They provide free shipping to anywhere in the US
  2. The Scents are bottled in California (Woo-Hoo!!)
  3. They are made with organic alcohol that is environmentally-friendly and non-allergenic.

Check out Commodity Here.

p.s. – I for one am curious to see what would happen when you started layering scents.  What do you guys think?
