A New Smell, Dirty French

I am always looking for a new scent or smell. I was asked by my dear friend, Ashley to try a new one from her company, Pure Romance and give my honest feedback. Here it is. The Look Dirty French has a look all its own, which is a good complement to the smell. It is in a sleek black box, stunning. The box opens like a blooming flower. The color combination is perfect, black and pink. Once the box is open, it is a slender black bottle. Pure Romance decided to put a black sheer (almost like a mini tutu) around the neck. Yes, it is removable, but a… Read More

Over time, there have been five “primary” love languages put together. These are there to give you a better understanding of how you get the most out of love. Physical Touch This can mean different things to different people. But overall, if your primary language is touch, it shows having your physical being taken care of, is the greatest way for you to accept love.

4 Great Places In Phoenix To Reset Your Head

There are only a few places in Phoenix to really escape the hustle. Here are my top four picks. White Tank Mountains This gem can be found in the far West Valley. Although not easy to get to, it is well worth the trip. Even just from the road, the views of the city are breathtaking.

Either way, you will feel refreshed and reset after visiting the White Tanks. South Mountain This has always been my go-to when I need… Read More
