talk about a blast from the past. i met up with a friend who i consider an arbiter of style. when i got a whiff of her, i asked, in a conspirational whisper(knowing how secretive some of us are about their perfume) “what fragrance are you wearing? it can’t be? is it? is it loves baby soft?” it turns out she was wearing chloe. so the next day i went to sephora, tried it but alas it didn’t quite smell the same on me. so i followed my initial olfactory reaction instinct and purchased love’s baby soft. it takes me back to the 7th grade (very likely one of the only great memories of that time) and i love, love, love the fresh, powdery scent.
am doing a semi cleanse (more on this later)and having this cashew milk as dinner replacement.
the simplest ingredients can create a diy obsession-worthy body scrub! i made mine using coconut oil, lime essential oil, lime rind and sugar and find myself showering over and over because i cant get enough of the scent and the glow it gives my skin.

cocktails are served…
sparkling white peach sangria
in planning my nieces wedding shower I have been experimenting with different cocktails to serve a crowd. i came across this recipe from thekitchn.com and think we hit on a crowd pleaser.
serves 4 to 6
2 to 3 white peaches, sliced (2 if they are large, 3 if they are small)
3/4 cup peach brandy
1 bottle moscato, such as 7 daughters moscato, chilled
1 liter white peach seltzer water, such as seagram's sparkling white peach seltzer, chilled
in a pitcher place 3/4 of the sliced peaches (saving some for garnish) and brandy and lightly muddle.
add the moscato and seltzer water.
stir with wooden spoon to mix. pour into ice filled glasses and top with a couple of fresh peach slices.
