Because you’d be surprised how awesome it is to smell like crayons and paperback books…
I still love the wacky scents that Demeter comes up with, as you read in my last post HERE (hello, sushi, champagne and chocolate chip cookies). This week I decided to test out two old school favorites…two scents that remind me of being a kid, where my biggest issue in life was whether or not I’d get a solid few hours of TV in before bed time.
Demeter Crayon, inspired by childhood, smells just like the box you opened on that very first day of the new school year. You might not think that you want to smell like Robin’s Egg Blue or Blue Violet but, trust me, you do. I wore this scent the other day to the grocery store and two people asked me what my perfume was. “It smells so familiar!” one lady said. Well yeah, if you went to elementary school, then that makes sense. 🙂 Fun fact: Crayola’s first box of eight Crayons made its debut in 1903. Today, there are over 64 colors and more than 100 types of crayons in production.
Books…yes, please. I LOOOVED reading as a kid; I would go through at least three books a week at some points, and even though I don’t have the time to get through that many books a week as an adult, the smell of books still puts a big smile on my face. Demeter Paperback has just a touch of the musty smell of aged paper, mixed with a little violet and a dash of tasteful potpourri.
The paperbacks on my shelf…well, I’ve gotta support my friends and fellow bloggers who wrote these awesome books.
Confessions of a Beauty Addict: My friend Nadine wrote this book and I still always recommend it to any friends who want a fun, girly read.
The Recipe for Radiance: Alexis is the queen of DIY natural beauty, and I personally LIVE for the avocado-chocolate recipe. A-mazing.
A Hot Glue Gun Mess: I love the combo if Kate’s hilarious stories mixed in with fun DIYs.
Inspiralized: I got hooked on Aly’s blog when she first started since I was looking for healthy, low-carb recipes, and her book has a ton of great recipes that range from super easy (basically no cooking skills required) to more advanced dishes…yet, they’re all delicious.
