Sense the Scent

Never forget. Sometimes no words are needed. Whether it’s a day of remembrance or a national holiday, I find that less is more. Just being there will suffice. And some new Calvin Klein makeup can’t hurt either.

With that said, let freedom ring and let’s keep on keeping on.

Yesterday in Richmond, I grabbed lunch with my mom and our friend Beth at one of our favorite spots, Good Food’s Grocery. We go here quite often.

I love the smells from this aisle in particular. Rustic and spicy.

We like perusing the aisles and trying out all the samples because who doesn’t like tasty snacks?


Blissful girl chats in crisp scenes of green.


I went with the Protein Salad. It’s full of healthiness. Gluten free and all that ish. 🙂


Fresh from fashion week and the end of summer vacations, we had lots to discuss.

Speaking of which, after the Calvin Klein shoot on Tuesday, I left with tons of makeup to go home and play with. I didn’t even know Calvin Klein had a makeup line. It’s more popular abroad, but if you live in the states, you can buy their products at Ulta.


I can’t get enough of their lipgloss and mascara.


Usually one to buy cheap drug store mascara, I could actually see the difference in using their mascara. It’s much smoother in application and has an all around nicer effect.applying_eyeliner_ck

My favorite of their lip makeup is the Illicit, which is just a tone darker than my natural lip color and adds a the perfect punch of gloss.CK_illicit_lipgloss


While on the topic of beauty, my big from my sorority who I saw on Sunday works for Bergdorf and gave me a Tracy Reese perfume to try that i’m also loving.


It smells of backyard mystical gardens amid peonies, dewy greens and citron. Very feminine. Very lovely. And wonderfully understated.

An agreeable fragrance has the potential to turn heads. And all you need is a little squirt.

Squirt squirt. I’m off to the rehearsal dinner tonight in a quaint little city in north western Virginia called Winchester before the wedding tomorrow.

Ciao bella.
