My Wedding Day Fragrance

We got married THREE months ago. Is that still considered newly-wed status? When do I have to stop calling us newly-weds? Can I do it forever?

Her-RingWhile I don’t regret the six day planned wedding, I did miss out on some fun wedding planning preparations like wearing a bride tank top. I bought it the day before my wedding, at Victoria’s Secret for a silly amount of money, and wore it the day after we got married. Keeping it real.

Our wedding was unexpected by most, but absolutely perfect for us and we both would do it the same way in a heartbeat — no fuss. I’m glad my dress was simple, and I don’t have to savour it in a box forever. I can wear it any time because it’s the perfect kind of dress to wear casually or formally. Right now it’s sitting in a Sephora tote bag. Maybe I’ll wear it this weekend.

The perfume that I wore on my wedding day was a simple choice for me. A fragrance that both myself and Mr. Spiffykerms (love the nickname Nicole gave him) enjoys. It’s no other than Philosophy Living Grace. I bet you’re not one bit surprised. I’m forever lucky that I brought it back home with me, otherwise I’d be scent-free.

Philosophy Living GracePhilosophy describes Living Grace perfectly: living grace spray fragrance was formulated to help center a woman’s mood, is deeply sensuous, multi-sensory and truly a heavenly inspiration. living grace is an ethereal, clean fragrance of fresh neroli to create uplifting feelings of vibrancy, soft, clean lily of the valley brings a sense of gratitude and sensuous, warm musk embraces you to the beauty of living in the present moment each day.

Living in the present moment each day. Exactly what we did in the 6 days planning our wedding, no? Can I just say this was meant for me?

Living Grace is a gorgeous bridal scent. I’ve been a regular fan of this clean fresh scent for a couple of years and I don’t see myself getting tired of it any time soon. I hope they don’t plan on discontinuing it, it’s absolutely wonderful to wear all year round.

Also if you’re interested I did a recap on my Wedding Day Makeup.

McDonalds gave me a Christmas present

 So many fun things happened this week.

First up I’ll post my outfits that I wore to work this week. That’s a lot of red going on. Guess I’m subconsciously feeling festive?ootwwIt’s pretty windy outside this morning, hence the face.

Secondly let’s talk about food. Holy guacamole my work is amazing. We had two sponsored lunches this week. Monday we had pizza and yesterday we had TURKEY DINNER. Crazy right. I am the messiest eater ever. Where’s my bib? Pepsi flung down my shirt (I don’t even know myself), and gravy strewn everywhere. It’s a common phrase that people use on me on almost a weekly basis: “Nancy, we can dress ya up but we can’t take you out.” I will admit that is 100% true..turkey dinner

Also have been drinking some Starbucks peppermint white mocha’s. #PeppyMoXo on twitter…catchy name. PeppyMoXO

Not only that… McDonalds made me McSmile (cue the cheese… burger) with a Christmas gift filled with all sorts of treats. I posted it on Facebook and Twitter thanking them for the presents. I don’t really know why they sent it to me, other than the fact that they tell me I’m their biggest fan. I can’t believe I’m noticed. Maybe that means I eat there too much. The bag contained 2 McCafe mugs, a pkg of coffee, and some coupons for fries, wraps, drinks and burgers.  When I opened the superbly large box it came in, I literally did a hysterical laugh. No joke, it sounded manic and two of my coworkers came running into my office to see what the commotion was all about. Then I started dancing and twirling with my new “purse”.

Philosophy Living Grace Set

Julie and I having swalliesI’m hooked. My co-workers are hooked. I’ve got them all into the Philosophy products. My co-worker Julie and I (ahem, shown above—keeping things real with a brewski in hand) are huge fans of the Philosophy Living Grace set.

If I didn’t love the scent so much, I totally would’ve given it to her. Box-of-Living-GraceBut I just simply can’t give it away. It’s my signature scent.

Living Grace was the very first perfume I’ve ever finished. In my entire life, people!Philosophy-Living-Grace

I enjoy the products so much that I keep it out on my clean desk to display all the time. Minus the perfume, that goes in the bathroom and I spray some on me whenever I see fit. Which can be upwards to a few times per day. Oops.Living-Grace-Philosophy

From my instagram. Christmas tree, little decorations, and bam — philosophy stuff. Go figure.
