Love Yourself

Coming up on 30, I started thinking that maybe it's time to retire the old peach scented lotions and cheap raspberry body sprays from middle school, and perhaps start smelling like a lady- whatever that means.  I dragged Natalie to our Sephora (yeahhhriiiiight!  there was no arm twisting) and despite my efforts to ignore the sales lady, she turned out to be very helpful, I wound up taking a personality test for my 'signature scent' and finding out that I am both "earthy" and "floral."  I gagged at a few scents, I respectfully declined a few others that were trying to make me into an elderly lady, and I picked out a few that I thought I could live with, but wasn't ready to commit, so I brought home a nice set of miniature vials from Tocca to try out, and so far I've loved them all.  Today I am wearing Stella with Bitter Orange, Blood Orange, and White Fresia, and I think my favorite might be Florence with Italian Bergamot, Green Pear, and Ivory Gardenia.  The best part, though, is that when you open the box it says "Love Yourself" on the inside lid, and really, no matter what scent I choose for the day, loving yourself is what makes a true lady.
