Busy weekend ahead: I’ll be at my old stomping grounds, Westfield Valley Fair, for a #BossNotes panel with WhoWhatWear! I worked at Valley Fair during my senior year of high school – it was (and still is) the best mall around! Can’t wait to be back there! Wishing you a wonderful weekend. Thank you so much for visiting!

clean-reserve-sueded-oudatelier-cologne-bergamonte-soleiltocca-emeliasephora-fragrance-clean-tocca Finding some outfit inspiration thanks to my newest Springtime scents from Sephora: CLEAN Reserve in Sueded Oud (just as their name suggests, they believe in sustainable beauty: responsibly sourced ingredients, eco-conscious manufacturing and packaging, and giving back to farmers and their communities. This Sueded Oud scent is sophisticated, fresh, and mysterious), Atelier Cologne in Bergamote Soleil (if a scent can be a memory or scene, I envision a scene in my parents’ classic silver gray 80s convertible Mercedes going down the Pacific Coast Highway on a sunny late-Spring day with a scarf tied around my hair – that’s exactly it), and Tocca in Emelia (bohemian, but fresh and elegant at the same time).

My favorite? Has to be this one. Different from my typical scent of choice, it’s unisex and has a very alluring masculine side to it. Plus I can’t get that scene out of my head. Time to make it a reality… ha!

Hope you’re having a great week so far!
