Well, happy Monday. I decided to bring back my “Things Making Me Happy” series that I started during quarantine because, well, it’s fun to share the random things that make life just a little bit better.
I hope everyone has a great start to their week!
Things Making Me Happy: 8.1.22
A new chic perfume for summer
If you haven’t been hiding under a rock then you’ve definitely seen all the buzz on the new-ish brand PHLUR, created by mega influencer Chriselle Lim. The Apricot Privée scent, in particular, is my favorite (of the scents they sent over) with its notes of apricot, jasmine absolute and argarwood. According to the site, the fragrance was inspired by Chriselle’s daydream of a sweaty, sexy summer fling and, I mean, I can definitely relate. lol.
A healthy margarita mixer
I saw this kombucha-based mixer at Whole Foods a few months ago and decided to give it a shot. It’s low calorie and fairly low in sugar and carbs so why not? UM. It’s so good. I was actually really shocked. You just add a little tequila (and maybe a jalapeno if you like your margs extra spicy), and bam – instant margarita.

The most comfortable and cute undies
My friend Kelley is the lingerie genius behind this brand and she gifted me two of these soft stretch undies a few month back (one thong and one brief) – I am legit obsessed now. They are SO comfortable and, obviously, also really cute. They come in three colors. Get these ASAP.
A lighthearted summer TV series
If you follow me on Instagram then you know how much I fell in love with this Amazon Prime series. Admittedly, it did take me about three episodes to get into it but, once I did, I couldn’t stop watching. It’s honestly just an easy and fun series that makes you wish you were back in high school (almost).

A clean candle that smells like Barbie’s house
This candle smells like legit heaven or, I guess technically, it smells like Barbie’s Dream house. I’ve tried two other NETTE candles – they are all great – but this scent is definitely my new favorite with notes of pink pepper, roasted chestnut, leatherwood LMR, and vanilla bean. Plus, who doesn’t love a Barbie collab?
