Fresh Friday: Romance de Provence.
I KNOW there’s a ton of you out there who are SO amped it’s Friday — teachers, worker-folk, I’m sure you’re all ready for the 5 o’clock hour to strike so you can race out the door to not waste a MINUTE of your holiday break.
And I don’t blame you one bit.
I do have to work next week, but only two full days, so I’m definitely not complaining! I feel terrible that I really haven’t gotten into the Christmas spirit this year — I feel like it always happens last minute.
But, I’m making it my MISSION to cram as many Christmas movies as possible in this weekend. Home Alone, Christmas With the Kranks, Christmas Vacation, Charlie Brown’s Christmas, It’s a Wonderful Life. Bring it on!
Unfortunately, I’ve got TWO more gifts I need to get — and I have a feeling they’re going to be difficult to find. Wish me luck within the war zone known as… every store ever this time of year.
But, before I head off to work, let me tell you about the latest perfume in my collection! I’m wearing it right now and it smells pretty sexy if I do say so myself. It’s Catherine Malandrino’s Romance de Provence.
It came in my December Birchbox and it really does smell romantic. According to the Birchbox description:
No one knows fragrance like the French, and this sophisticated eau de parfum from Grenoble-born designer Catherine Malandrino proves it. Inspired by the Provence region, it begins with subtle fruity layers and opens up to a floral bouquet of jasmine, orange flower, rose, violet and lily (all against a backdrop of powder musk, amber, and patchouli). Both sweet and sleek, it provides a je ne sais quoithat lingers all day.
It’s that amber that gives it the sexy smell — I love it!
Anyway, I’m about to venture to the post office…wish me luck! Catch my weekend activities on SnapChat @OrangeJulius7 …and I haven’t forgotten about the blog class! I has been submitted for review, so I should hear back today. Keep watch on my social media for coupon codes!
