Eric uses the rider and I use the push mower. I push for good reason - I am flat out dangerous on the rider. Like the time I flipped the mower over on top of me. But I digress - that's a story for another day. With us cutting at the crack of dawn, the grass was wet.
Well, we quickly cut through the yard, put the mowers away and headed out of town. The problem happened when we got home. The wet grass had baked in the heat of the summer day under the mowers in the garage and the smell was atrocious! Eric had quite the job in front of him hosing down the stinky mowers and getting that odor out of the garage. Luckily for us, the smell hadn't permeated the entire house.
All of that brings me to today's post -- I'm thinking out loud about a couple of products I love to smell. You know, the ones that you want to just close your eyes and take a big breath in so the scent moves slowly through your body and makes a smile spread over your face.
One of the things I love is the day cream I use. Acure Day Cream has the wonderful scent of citrus. When I put it on in the morning after washing my face, I try to pause and enjoy the smell as it fills my senses. Ahhhhh. Just thinking about it makes me relax a little bit. Love this stuff! Does your morning lotion start your day off right?
During the day, when I need a scent fix I turn to my Skeem Perfume Roller. My favorite scent - Flower Market. Pop this little baby out of your purse, give it a little roll on your wrist and you are good to go. Or if you're single and you see a cute guy heading your way, let him get a little whiff of this on your wrist and you probably have him hooked.
HERE last August. So easy to make and so enjoyable to smell. At the end of a long day, it's wonderful to lay your head back against the pillows and inhale this relaxing scent. Here's the recipe again in case you missed it the first time around.
2 cups distilled water
1 oz. (2 tablespoons) vodka or rubbing alcohol
1/2 - 3/4 teaspoon lavender oil (depending on how strong you like your spray)
So there's my favorite scents morning, noon and night. What are some of your favorites?
