Your school-age kids will soon be home all summer. Already you’re thinking about all the ways you’ll keep them entertained? Neighborhood games, day camps, lemonade stands, swimming pools, in and out with wet clothes, wet feet and maybe wet dogs?
It’s a tall order, but you’ll do it (you’re a tall order girl), and maybe have the time of your life? Looking at the big picture (not the wet floors, carpets and dogs), it’s just a short while that kids are kids, so let’s enjoy the moments, right? Clean your house, get your work done, and leave time to be a kid again – that’s the gift. Don’t miss it.
If you don’t have children, or they’ve left the nest, summer might be the perfect time to jump into your inner child. When you were a kid, what did you love to do for hours…time would pass, and you’d feel like you just had breakfast and now mom is calling for dinner? Do that now. If not now, when? (For me, it was reading adventure and mystery novels or making art outside on the front steps).
Now that you’ve dug deep to get in touch with your inner child, let’s not forget that you’re a grown up after all, and with that too are amazing and memorable things.
The day has been awesome. You played like you were 5 or 7 or 10 (whatever your favorite age) again. Now, the night belongs to you. Switch gears. Doesn’t it feel great when you have gears to switch, when you can be 5 one minute and 35 (or whatever) the next? No one could have explained this wonderment to you. It’s one of those things you just have to experience, and now you do!
Okay, grown-up girl, when it’s just you and your special someone as the sun goes down, reach for fragrances whose names speak for themselves.
Waiting for your special someone, or just dumped a less than special somene off at the ex-boyfriend graveyard? No worries. YOU deserve something sensual and playful to celebrate your spirit and delight YOUR senses.
Because when you come down to it, you are absolutely complete, and while having someone around might make life more fun sometimes, this whole fragrance and skincare thang – well you do it for YOU! We all know that. → Read more
