Toes in the water, sunshine on the skin,evenings spent watching blinking fireflies or brilliant fireworks, all the little indulgences that only summer can bring. As it’s arriving soon (in the northern hemisphere), for June, we want to know the special ways you indulge during the summer months.
Any activities you look forward to? For some, it involves dodging bugs to searching for respite from soaring temps. But for everyone it means longer daylight hours. What is your summer indulgence?
I wish summer meant beach vacations, fun adventures, cookouts, late night movie watching and ice cream runs but in reality it just equals busy season for work. With my husband’s long hours and both our busy schedules, it’s almost impossible to plan any summer fun sadly. I would say we mostly indulge in our ice cream runs to the local frozen custard shop together for an icy treat to help get us through the heat of the summer.
Continuing with gratification, what’s the most indulgent fragrance purchase you have ever made or been gifted? A special bottle of perfume, exclusive wax opening, or pricey, fancy pants candle?
I just can not justify dropping big bucks on a bottle of perfume, (i.e $80 +). This may not be fancy or extra pricey but this bottle of perfume is special. My mom bought me a small bottle when it first came out and I enjoyed it so much it became my main perfume as a teen. Fast forward a few years later to a day that me and my mother were wedding planning. I had mentioned this fragrance and how I wished I could find more to wear it on my wedding day because of all the memories it has with it. That’s when my mother surprised me days before my wedding with this bottle.
Bombshell The Summer Edition is a luscious tropical fragrance, limited edition for summer 2012. It contains notes of star fruit, pear, wild lily of the valley, jasmine, exotic red tea and white amber.
Lastly, how would you indulge if $ was no object? It could be a luxe fragrance you desire, a pampering spa package, a legendary retired scent, etc. What is your dream way to treat yo’ self?
This is tough as I am usually rather simplistic and don’t really pamper myself and to treat myself it is usually only on a wax purchase. When I was telling my hubbie about this question, he laughed and said “Easy, you would clean out Super Tarts. You’d call them and say okay, send me all you got, except for the patchouli ones, I don’t want those.’
I would also like to have a few pies of Peppermint Coconut Mallow from Rose Girls and maybe go a little crazy in a lush store.
