Hi Friends. As I sat down to think about what to share today, my mind came to several things. Several memories came to mind and I knew what I had to share.
Years ago when I was in middle school, there was a group of "preppy" girls who after gym class would lather themselves in the best smelling perfumes. I can still smell the fresh scent from the locker room. I was shy and always too chicken to ask them what it was. One day after class, I overheard their conversation and it included the mention of the raspberry body spray they had purchased in a nearby mall. The next time I went there with my mom, we searched every store for "that smell." I found something similar but not quite it. Not too long after that, I heard them mention Bath and Body Works. That was my answer and where my obsession began. Luckily, there was one opening in that same mall very soon and I too soon had that good smelling Sun Ripened Raspberry body spray.
Since then, I have always loved perfume. It is part of my morning routine along with putting on my makeup. I must have on my perfume. I love it.
You can see from my collection, I love it. I have a few bottles of "expensive" stuff but I like the body sprays mostly.
The next part of my "getting ready routine" is my jewelry. I love my jewelry. No, I am not loaded with lots of fancy diamonds or gold, but rather my cheap costume jewelry. I must have a necklace and bracelet to go with each outfit. There is a new store that just opened in town not too long ago that has an entire wall of jewelry like this including bracelets, necklaces and earrings all for $1! Needless to say, I love that store too!
Here is my bracelet collection.
My mom bought me this box to store them all in several years ago and it is now bulging. The lid will not fit down on it. I am now on the hunt for a larger prim box.
And the necklaces....
I'm ashamed to say that's not all of them. (SMILE)
So that you have it is my loves for today. My girly necessities.
Until next time....
