So just a quick break from my usual outfit posts- I wanted to share with you some of my fragrance faves. I’ve been meaning to pick up the Balenciaga Florabotanica for months. While traveling, I decided to do a little duty free shopping in London Heathrow Airport. Unfortunately, the Florabotanica was sold out so I opted for Rosabotanica and let me just sayyyyyyyyy- AMAZEBALLS……. I finally opened the package this morning and used a bit before work. I cannot stop smelling myself!! The perfume’s aroma gives off of a strong garden smell, and while I do not particularly like the smell of flowers, this fragrance is so delightful! The packaging is pretty dope too!
Talked about Prada Candy before on the blog. Still one of my all time favorites. I usually reserve this perfume for Monday-Friday. If you like sweet, yet rich fragrances, this one is for you! It’s a very unique smell; men and women alike will ask you what you’re wearing.
This one shouldn’t be new to you. I usually wear my Flowerbomb on weekends. The fragrance is truly one of a kind and very popular. Someone will definitely know you’re wearing flowerbomb, as it gives off the same fragrance regardless of body chemistry. I have the Eau de Parfum which is a more solid, richer, and long- lasting smell, but Eau de Toilette (a bit cheaper) will linger on your clothes even after the day wears out.
Dior Addict is my favorite fragrance of all time- The original, not the revised smell, that is. Please don’t confuse the two. One is pink and one is navy blue! The nvy blue (original) smells better. This is actually my Fall/Winter fragrance. It’s very strong and rich. My bottle is coming to an end so I have to restock before Fall approaches.
Tom Ford Velvet Orchid is truly divine! It’s sort of a spicy and room-permeating smell. Definitely going to turn heads and expand nostrils. I didn’t buy it yet but it’s on my watch list. I LOVE perfumes. I’ve owned so many but this fragrance, is hands down, the best I’ve come across. Like seriously. THE BEST. Nothing compares. Not even my beloved Dior Addict. Try it at your local Sephora, Bloomingdales or Barneys!

I am officially a fan of the Angelina African print. I found this fabric in Kejetia Market in Kumasi, Ghana and now regret not purchasing more yards. IF you are interested in purchasing this top, stay tuned :).
Because of it’s heavy detailing, I decided to keep it simple with distressed denim shorts, and metallic pumps.

My first couple of days in Ghana were quite warm. But considering it is rainy season at the moment, those warm moments were quickly replaced by cool breezes and mild weather. Either way I didn’t complain. I’m sure you’ve seen all of these pieces in prior posts. I’m all about maximizing my wardrobe by mixing pieces together!
Found this romper on sale in New Look while I was in London. Love the black and white print pattern but I was really drawn to the collar. I have a strong affinity for anything with collars. So it was only right that I snagged this up. Decided to pair it with metallic colored heels and a black tote to complete the look.
Enjoy the week ahead! I have so many posts and videos to share and promise to do so after I get settled back at work and school!
Warby Parker’s limited edition Beacon Collection, which launched TODAY, is the perfect blend between affordable style and fashionable purpose!
What I love about Warby Parker, besides their affordable pricing and stellar designs, is the great length of detailing that goes into each pair of glasses. Warby Parker provides length and width information for each pair, so that you can determine which frame fits your face! And if that isn’t enough, for every pair you buy, WP gives a frame to someone in need! That was the only reason I needed to agree to promote the Beacon Collection. Talk about paying it forward!
