#5forFriday: Love Song for Peony

#5forFriday Peony Paperself Small Peonies, Burberry Peony Lip & Cheek Bloom, L'Occitane Pivoine Flora EDT, L'Occitane Pivoine Sublime Tinted Lip Balm, Dior Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet, Fendi L'Acquarossa EDT

It’s hard to say what my “favorite flower” is. Each season I have a different answer to that question, and for this time of the year, it’s peonies! Not only are they regally voluptuous (it’s so fluffy I’m gonna dieee), they have such a distinctive fragrance. Naturally, I can’t let the relatively short season pass without dedicating a #5forFriday to peonies!

#Perfume Monday: Atelier Cologne Cèdre Atlas & Sud Magnolia Are Perfect Together

Atelier Cologne Collection Azur Cèdre Atlas, Sud Magnolia review

For the most part, I am a horribly unromantic person.

Before you start to think I might need a shrink, I will tell you this: I do believe in meeting the right person at the right time, and that some people belong together.
