Editor's Picks: Gift-Worthy Perfumes

A fragrance is such a great gift for a special someone. It's substantial but not too expensive, depending on which kind. And the good ones come in such pretty bottles.For an incredibly unique perfume, Immortal Perfumes pictured above, offers a combination of beautiful scents and rich, romantic history.

My personal go-to fragrances tend to be the Victoria's Secret perfumes. Scents like Sexy Little Things Noir by Victoria's Secret come in such beautiful packaging, though I'm partial to the scent of VS Pink and VS Sheer Love.


A fragrance can serve as a sentimental gift. With scents like Lollia In Love, Lolliamakes for a very sweet gift. I love the floral prints and unique packaging for their other items like bath soap and lotion. If it isn't being given as a romantic gift, for example, a lotion and bath soap set is much more suitable. For a nice sampling of the different scents, try this Lollia Little Luxe Gift Set.

5 Ways to Wear a Blanket Scarf


Blanket scarves have become a staple for fall and winter. This over-sized scarf trend, often in a plaid print, is very versatile and perfect for layering on a chilly winter day. You can drape it, fold it, roll it, or wear it like you would a regular scarf. Check out how these five fashion bloggers style their blanket scarves.


Wear it Like a Poncho - This is one of the most popular ways I've seen these over-sized scarves styled by fashion bloggers, and it's the most simple. All you have to do is drap it over your shoulders and let it hang down in the back. I love how Dana from How I Met My Outfit paired a grey plaid scarf with a black and grey outfit. If you have a more colorful plaid scarf, pair it with skinny jeans and a neutral white top.


Fold it and Let it Hang - This works well with or without a coat. Simply fold the scarf and let it hang loosely around your neck. Pictured above: Sirma Markova paired hers with a solid-colored coat, and a bright pair of heels to pick up on the red in the print. Keep it from getting blown off in the harsh winter weather by layering a crossbody bag over the scarf.


Layer it Over a Sweater Dress - You can always just wear a blanket scarf the same way you would a regular scarf. Loop it all the way around the neck from both ends. Lovely by Lucy styled it on top of a jacket and sweater dress, perfect for a chilly day.


Fold and Loop it Into a Circle Scarf  - Breanne of Flattery used a fabric scrap to create this over-sized circle scarf. You could create a similar look with your blanket scarf. Fold it flat lengthwise, tie the ends together in a knot the loop it around your neck, leaving one loop longer than the other.


Fold and Belt It - Rebecca from Blogger Not Billionaire shows us how to style a blanket scarf without a coat. Layer it over a long-sleeve tee by folding it wide enough to resemble a vest. Then drape it over your shoulders and let the ends come down evenly across your hips, and finish off the look with a belt.

Here is a great video tutorial with some extra ideas on how to tie an over-sized or blanket scarf:
