Honey Sweetheart Uniquelybrandid

Hey dude, what’s up? I hope you don’t mind me calling you dudes. It’s the California girl in me.

I know you’re like, ” Wait, it’s not Monday what are you doing getting all willy nilly with the posting? ” Well I wanted to share something with you because it’s awesome, and I’m kind of obsessed. Also it’s on sale so I figured you might want to check it out.

This past weekend I went on a little trek to Bath and Body Works. I was looking for new candles and a room spray. Well I kind of bombed on the candle front, but I did find a pillow spray and this amazing scent that I am addicted to now.

Disclaimer: I’m not usually a fan of Bath and Body Works fragrances. Well that’s not completely accurate. There have been a few specific scents that I enjoy, but as years go on I just don’t find myself drawn to many of the new scents they bring out. So when I saw the new America’s Sweethearts line I wasn’t expecting much. First of all the packaging is a little tween-y. But don’t let that distract you. I picked up the Honey Sweetheart scent and I just … I don’t know. I’m not a girl who really likes sweet smells. I’m much more into sophisticated florals, water scents, and woods. But for some reason this scent just called to me.

Honey Sweetheart includes notes of honeyed violets and pink sugar. Yes that’s right honey, flowers, and cotton candy. Definitely not my go to kind of fragrance. I’ll admit that I can’t see myself wearing this for a super dressy special occasion. But there is just something lovely and sweet about this that makes it perfect for everyday. It feels especially girly , but not in juvenile way. And the best part  is that the scent isn’t cloying. You won’t be driving people crazy walking down the hall smelling like the dessert booth at your county fair.  It’s the kind of scent that just makes you want to smile.  Ever since I purchased it, I’ve been spraying it on at least 4 times a day. It’s kind of crazy.

There are two other scents in the Sweethearts collection: Daisy Dreamgirl and Berry Flirt. When I  was in the store they were buy 2 get 2 free, so I picked up the Daisy Dreamgirl  fragrance spray and body wash as well. It’s a very refreshing and subtle floral scent, and I enjoy it. But Honey Sweetheart has captured my heart. Right now you can get these Buy 3 get 2 free on the Bath and Body Works website. I’m not sure if these are limited edition or not, but I’d snatch them up while you can!

Have you ever been surprised by a fragrance? What are your go to feel good smells?

I saw this today on tumblr and it really struck a chord. I have had the hardest time in life feeling included. I get along with lots of different kinds of people. I love a wide array of experiences. Sometimes this can be limiting in a way that most people don’t seem to understand.

If you fit into a group, then you have security. There’s always somebody that is there because you all belong. But what happens if you don’t fit into just one group. I’ve found that people in general feel better in cliques. No matter how big or small, no matter how open they want to believe they are, people like to know their boundaries. So what do you do when you can’t pick just one? Most of the time you end up on the outside looking in. Add in a little (OK, maybe not so little) dose of social anxiety, and BAM! Loner for life.

It’s easy to start to feel like an outcast. You always feel like you’re playing a game without benefit of knowing the rules. It’s important to remember that who you are is exactly who you are meant to be. We all have strengths and weaknesses, but we are all beautiful because of what makes us different.Everyone will not always know ho to love your beauty, but that does not make you less beautiful. You will find love, acceptance, and community that is right for you. And when you do, it will make you wonder what you have been so worried about.

Love yourself. Love your tribe. Let them love you.

Have a great day,
