It took me about a week to get back on track, but I'm back and I'm better than ever! I've missed chit-chatting with you all, and there are loads of things in store to share. Although there are numerous posts that will be centered around all things wedding-related (someone else needs to hurry up and get married...I've just discovered my desire to play around with other people's wedding plans, as my own was just too much to attempt at times), I'll start with something that I grabbed once I returned home from sunny, relaxing Brasil.
Would you know that in Brasil, there aren't any Victoria's Secret stores to be found? With all of the beauty that the country offers (in terms of supermodels) to the infamous pages of that catalogue, you'd think that they'd have at least one. Nope. The only place you'll be lucky enough to find it at, are the duty free shops--and in my opinion, they have the worst pickings! Strawberries and Champagne body spritz? I think I'll pass.
So, upon returning home I ran straight for one, and found a handful of Brasil-marketed products on offer. I still think this is odd, as nobody in Brasil really gets to benefit from these things...but that's neither here nor there. Beauty of Brazil is a limited line of products featuring ingredients that are common in Brasil. The Very Sexy Now fragrance, is one that I wouldn't have picked up, had I not seen the words "papaya, orchid and creamy coconut milk" on the bottle. It's no secret that I'm a sucker for coconut derived fragrances, and when I sprayed this, it smelled more of Very Sexy Beach. You know what I mean--a fresh coconut spilling over with agua de coco, the salty air from the water, and sun. In the bag. The matching oil is equally soft and inviting in scent, and it includes buriti and babassu oil as extra moisturizing agents. It's difficult to come by a spray oil, and ever since Origins discontinued Birthday Suit, I've been searching like mad. This completes the need, with a subtle yet sexy undertone which can be paired with many different complementing scents. Soo in the bag. At 40% off (in stores, not online), I may just have to go back and pick up some backups!
Have you tried this? What scents remind you of the beach?
