Perfume & Scents!

Hey friends! Oh my gosh our wedding is a little over a week away! Eeeeeeek! I never thought I'd be one of those brides that lets their wedding take over there life but it's totally what I've become. Thinking and planning out every detail. I understand now how weddings just snowball into this huge thing! Our day is going to be beautiful and I'm so excited for it! But I'm also ready to get back to a somewhat normal routine! Example...getting back on a good blogging routine!! :)

One of the things that came up through all my searches on Pinterest for wedding ideas was the thought of having a special scent or perfume for you big day. I really loved that idea. Something special that would always remind you of the day! I am a perfume lover as it is. I've always thought of having one perfume that defines you is perfect, not constantly changing it up like outfits. It's like marketing and branding yourself...your scent adds to your look and who you are, how you are creating yourself for the world to see. There is something so beautiful and powerful about a woman with a great smell that trails behind her as she walks by. 

So, here is my perfume progression over the years. The first real perfume I bought and ending up with the one I will be switching to on my wedding day and possibly forever I love it that much! Take note, I love sweet and floral scents. Most of my perfumes have always had a heavy vanilla undertone but not so much that I end up smelling like a cupcake!

1). Empress Lily by Stacked Style: It is an innocent and slightly sweet scent of East meets West. Top notes: Japanese lotus, lychee and Asian pear. Heart: heliotrope, orris, jasmine and lily-of-the-valley. Base: vanilla, amber, musk and exotic woods. 

2). Vanilla From The Body Shop: Eau de toilette, light and wearable, warm, seductive and contains actual vanilla extract!

3). Princess by Vera Wang: Vera Wang Princess begins with notes of waterlilly, lady apple, mandarin meringue, and golden apricot skin. Mid notes of ripe pink guava, Tahitian flower, wild tuberose, and dark chocolate which give way to delectable base notes of pink frosting accord, precious amber, forbidden woods, royal musk captive and chiffon vanilla.

4). Viva La Juice by Juicy Couture: This has been my latest and greatest! I have been wearing this perfume for over 6 years! It's what I'm currently wearing now. I adore it and never thought I'd change it up until I found the perfume to wear on my wedding day. The description on their website says it all: The Viva la Juicy girl never turns down a glass of champagne or the chance to get into the tiniest bit of trouble. Viva la Juicy combines delicious wild berries, with creamy vanilla and bright jasmine. 

5). La Vie Est Belle by Lancome: This is my wedding day perfume and what I may switch over to permanently after my last bottle of Viva La Juicy is gone! The juice is made with the most precious natural ingredients, a modern interpretation of an oriental fragrance with a twist of gourmand. It entwines the elegance of iris with the strength of patchouli and the sweetness of a gourmand blend for an incredible scent with depth and complexity. 

I hope you guys get some great info on scents out of this post and maybe inspires you to try a little something new or maybe even to take the time to pick out a defining scent for themselves! :)

Malibu Barbie!

Hey friends! Just a quick little post. In the middle of a very chaotic week!  Less than a month out from our wedding date and I'm of course working too much, trying to workout and actually get some sleep. I am feeling very burnt out. I have some time off coming up and can't wait for it to start. I need some time to actually catch up on my life and get some stuff done for our wedding! This look totally reminds me of Malibu Barbie. I think it's just the combo of hot pink, leopard and blond but somehow I think it works and doesn't get too cheesy! I hope you like it and that it inspires you a little! Have a great week friends! Also, keep checking back! Wanderlust Boutique has some new pieces in and there will definitely be a giveaway! Follow me on Instagram if you don't want to miss it!

Touch of Teal!

Hey friends! Happy Friday! Just a quick little post from an outfit from the other day! This is an exciting weekend as my fiance is heading up to the mountains for his bachelor weekend with the guys! My Dad and brother are both making their way in from Toronto so I'm super excited to see them both! 

This look is a perfect outfit for running errands. Personally, I hate wearing t-shirts or comfy clothes to run around. I usually just end up feeling more gross and that "I hope I don't run into anyone" kind of deal definitely applies which I don't like. I like to feel confident in myself and sometimes throwing on something a little nicer definitely helps with that! Take the extra time, feel awesome and be the best version of yourself when you head out into the world! :)
Hope you like the look and that it inspires you a little!

Hey Friends!! So another little look sharing one of my favorite rompers in my closet. I'm all about easy fashion and this one totally does that for me! I can throw it on, add some quick accessories and be good to go! I actually only have a couple of these left in the shop so grab it while they last! Two size smalls and one medium! This is one I definitely can't get back in stock either! :)
I hope you all had a great weekend! Mine was pretty mellow but I did manage to get most of my garden weeded which felt like a huge accomplishment! There was a ton to do! This week I'm back to wedding DIY arts and craft fun! Post wedding I'll be sharing all of my DIY crafts that I did. For now, I'd like it to be somewhat secret until our wedding is over! 
Anyways, hope this look inspires you a little! Have a great week!
