Fragrance for 2016

Fragrances for winter and spring 2016





I have always loved perfume!  Since I was a little girl and I used to play with my mom’s perfumes and lotions.  Whenever I smell a perfume on someone I always think they seem a little more dressed up, mature, etc.  Although, sometimes a perfume can be too much.  I find it works best layered first with body lotion and then dab a little parfum on.


You can find these fragrances at Nordstrom, Byredo website and Bloomingdales.


Friday Field Trip

It is obviously not Friday but Christmas is on Friday so I thought the Friday Field Trip post would work better today.  I had to pick up last minute gifts in West Concord today.  I love the ease and character of West Concord.  There are a variety of shops and places to eat.  Also, a heavy interest in home improvement in this little center.  Forever Tile is one of my favorite home renovation sources that I have used in the past.  I also always stop at Concord Teacakes for a coffee and a lemon raspberry muffin.  Lastly, I usually hit up Phillips Paint for a few paint samples because I don’t have enough…

Etsy Love


Etsy has opened a whole new world to me and many others.  It is not just a place for crafts, you can also search for great gifts on this site.  I searched calligraphers and found a very talented artist, Victoria Drive.  Not only were her prices incredibly reasonable for a handmade piece, she also worked with me on this very small project to get it done with what I had in mind (it was almost as if she read my mind) and send it to me in time for Christmas.  I framed it in a RHbaby frame (a great source for frames for the home).  This is a present for my in-laws with all the grandchildrens’ birthdates.  I think my mother-in-law will love it!
