For those of you following my Instagram account, you probably already know that I was really feeling those girly vibes today. For those of you who are not following me on Instragram, you can search for alamocitysara and follow me!
Today I wore a floral printed dress and some pink seahorse earrings and topped off my finished look with some perfume. Statistics say that people who put on some type of fragrance before they walk out the door, that they instantly become 20% more attractive than those who do not!
I wore today’s outfit with my favorite perfume which is Daisy by Marc Jacobs.
I discovered this perfume through a perfume sample in Seventeen magazine. It wasn’t one of those samples that they just spray on the paper, but an actual little trial size that I was able to spray and wear to school whenever I wanted. It has a very youthful scent and does not make girls seem like they are trying to be all grown up, but at the same time it demands a little more respect to be treated as a young lady versus just a teenage girl. I loved it so much that my parents ended up buying it for me for Christmas.
My second favorite perfume is actually from Victoria’s Secret’s sister store, PINK. Personally, I shop PINK more than Victoria’s Secret because I love their pajamas and workout gear. What attracts me to shop both of these stores is that it just smells so amazing in there! The first time I sprayed PINK’s body spray, Cool & Bright, I knew I had to come back for it on pay day. First off, I loved the fact that it said Cool & Bright. I felt that the name reflected off of the personality of whoever wore it. When I went the the register to purchase it, I won the jackpot when the cashier told me that I could mix and match four different PINK products whether it was body mist, lotion or body wash and get it for just $25 total! Since I wanted in on this deal, I also bought a pink glittery body spray, Wild At Heart, that is perfect to wear with off-the-shoulder clothing because I like to spray it on top of my shoulders and in my collar bone area. I actually bought these body sprays right before I saw the movie Beauty and the Beast. It was a pretty great day.
This next perfume is one that I like to spray when I am wearing black for some reason. I think that the scent is very sophisticated and a bit mysterious and it is Eau de Parfum by Armani Code. Every time that I wear this, someone will tell me that I look nice today. I don’t know if this is a coincidence or maybe a lot of people think that black is my color. Either way, it feels pretty good to be complimented! The best way that I can describe this perfume is that it is like a very feminine cologne. It is also a little more fragrant than my previous perfumes so just one spray goes a long way.
Another one of my perfumes that will last all night with just one spray is FlowerBomb by Viktor & Rolf. It is definitely an evening perfume that is really great to wear for a date. I got this one as a Christmas gift and hadn’t heard of it prior to that day, but I really liked it. I think that this spray would be a little too much for a teenage girl, but definitely flattering on a young woman.An evening perfume that is a great scent but not as fragrant is Midnight by Ralph Lauren. This is the perfect perfume to wear if you prefer lighter scents, but still plan on a night on the town. I actually wore this perfume on my second year anniversary with my boyfriend a few weeks ago! The scent is light and has a hint of floral to it and it could also be worn to the office as well.
Last but not least is another perfume from Victoria’s Secret and it is called Love Is Heavenly. I got the travel size style and unlike all my other frangrances that spray out the product, this one is one that you rub on yourself when applying it. This one reminds me of Romance by Ralph Lauren which is a perfume that has been around since 1998. I think it is always good to have at least one travel size perfume to carry with you when you are on the go. You never know when you might need it!
That’s all I have for you guys tonight. Whether you are going out on a date or to work, it doesn’t hurt to spray a little bit of fragrance before you walk out the door. When it comes to putting on fragrance, be mindful of how much you out on. We all know that too much of something is not a good thing. Spray your wrist and chest and you should be good to go! Until next time, have a great night and stay stylish!
