English Coast ~ Jo Malone London

On Tuesday I attended a Jo Malone London party at Neiman Marcus to celebrate the release of Jo Malone's newest fragrance, Wood Sage & Sea Salt. The whole event was themed around the English Coast, which was the inspiration behind the new scent. We were served fish and chips while one of the account executives, Polly, talked a bit about the creation and thought process for Wood Sage and Sea Salt. We tested out the new cologne and then created our favorite fragrance combinations. Jo Malone perfumes are known for being easy to layer. In fact, they strongly encourage finding a unique scent combo that fits your personality! The scents are fantastic, not overpowering, and they last for quite a long time.

Although I didn't end up picking up the new scent, I absolutely fell in love with a different combination. I left the event with peony & blush suede and earl grey & cucumber. I've discovered that I like putting the peony on first and then topping it off with the earl grey to lighten the floral notes just a bit. I used that combo yesterday morning before heading to breakfast and I could still smell the scent after getting back from babysitting later that evening. I think that I might have even found a new favorite fragrance... time will tell!

September '14 Playlist

Happy September 1st and Labor Day! During the past month, I have been listening to a lot of acoustic music. It's been great to have some slightly calmer tracks mixed in with a lot of the loud and upbeat pop and country songs I like to listen to. I've always been a big fan of acoustic music, but this month I've gotten into it even more. In the past week I've been listening to it almost exclusively while doing my homework. Productivity at its finest. :)
What's your current favorite song?
