Me Too...

There is so much to be said on this subject, and speaking from experience, simply being able to hear other people's stories can have a huge impact on healing. So, yes, just the fact that women are speaking out, will in itself help other victims. So for this post, I am simply sharing my own stories. And of course the specific point of #metoo is to shed light on the magnitude of the problem. I don't know what the solution is, but I do hope that this helps in some small way, if only to help some of my readers to feel as if they're not alone, and that healing is possible.

Have you ever been sexually harassed or assaulted? Me too...

With the phrase "grab them by the pussy" reverberating since the presidential election (unfortunately) and new and disgusting details of the Weinstein scandal surfacing by the day, it is hard to keep anxieties at bay. It's difficult to watch the news or scroll through Twitter when just the words "rape" and "molest" …

Editor's Picks: Gift-Worthy Fragrances

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. My personal favorite are 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.

Perfumes can be such a sentimental gift. With scents like In Love and At Last, Lollia makes for a very sweet gift. I love the floral prints and unique packaging for their other items like bath soap and lotion.

Jo Malone Cologne Collection Set of Five Travel Size in Box

Back when I cleaned houses for a living (yes, I was a maid), I had a few wealthy clients, and these luxurious women all had one thing in common when it came to their bathrooms - they each had a gleaming silver vanity tray covered with several expensive bottles of perfume. And the one brand that each of them seemed to always have on hand was Jo Malone. So, while I have no idea what any of the Jo Malone London perfumes smell like, it is something I've wanted, something I associate with luxury.

These rollerball perfumes have been a favorite of mine because they're more affordable, but also because they're perfect for travel. Whether it's for a weekend away, or simply for day to evening, I always keep one of these in my purse. So many perfumes are now available in this functional mini size.

Tocca is another perfume brand I associate with luxury. I see it every time I'm in a girly high-end boutique; it always catches my eye. Like most luxury fragrances, it comes in a variety of scents that combine florals, musk, and fruity elements. What are some of your favorite scents?

  2. Such a lovely post, Krisztina! I've never tried any of these scents before, that Tocca fragrance sounds and looks great! I personally love nearly all of Marc Jacobs' perfumes, my two ultimate favorites from his collection are DOT and Lola. I also love Dior's J'Adore as well as Gucci's Guilty and Flora. I guess I have a lot of favorites, haha! Thanks for sharing and I hope you're having a great day so far!



    1. Thanks, Jalisa! I been wanting to try those Gucci perfumes. I hope you're having a great day too.:)

  3. My friends and family can never go wrong by giving me perfume! I really enjoyed your post!

  4. I've used the same fragrance since college. I found one I loved so much, that when I heard Estee Lauder was going to discontinue it, I bought every bottle the store had in stock that day. They lasted me a few years.

    Happily, they've brought it back.
