Love Express Perfume = l.o.v.e

Ah-hah... I found the "photo booth" on this computer so scratch what I said below! :)

First off... let me say there is nothing more that I dislike then stock photos when reading a blog. I want to see the real deal. However, my computer is in the shop again and my computer guy let me borrow his MacBook Air... and there is no photo port. Boo. So, stock photo it is.

I was at Express yesterday and their new perfume caught my eye and all my senses when I walked into the store. Right as I walked into the store I smelled this divine scent and I gravitated towards the display. I sprayed it about 5 times while in the store but figured I didn't need another perfume... until I got home and all I wanted to do was rush back to Express and buy it.

So, today... it called me back and it's mine all mine. 
It comes in a 1.7 fl oz ($44.90) or the 3.4 ($59.90)... I got the 3.4 because I had a feeling I'd go through the 1.7 too quickly. 

I am not good at describing scents other than it's smells good... really really good. It's a light, girly, fresh and summery kind of scent. 

But, this is how they officially describe it because "really really good" doesn't really tell you much. ha ha

"Notes of Blackberry, Lily of the valley, Tiare Blossom and sheer vanilla musk". Yumm.

Have you had the chance to check this out yet? No? What are you waiting for then??

Mrs. Globe

Blog slacker I am indeed. 
As I said in my last post I was without my computer for 3 weeks and now summer is in full swing life has been b-u-s-y! It feels like I am doing something everyday. 

At the end of August I'm going to be doing the Mrs. Globe pageant... I'm really excited about it. I grew up watching pageants and always dreaming I could be apart of something like that. I got married and had babies young so my chances of doing Miss Michigan were no longer. I found out about the Mrs. Globe pageant a few months ago and it sounded like something I'd really love to be apart of. Not only is it a beauty pageant... it's a charity for the WIN Foundation which helps in the recovery and healing of abused women.

A few months ago I was feeling like ever since I left Guatemala (in 2005) a hole has been missing in my heart... that hole was helping someone other than myself. Feeling I am really doing something that's making a difference in the life of another. I'm really excited about the WIN Foundation because it's a beautiful organization that helps women who once had no hope...find healing and hope again! 

So, now... on to the glitz and glamour!
I found this dress at (make sure you check out this site if you are looking for dresses... most amazing selection ever!)
I can't wait to get it and show you what it looks like in pictures but I think it's really pretty!

I also need to get a yellow summer dress and a day time white dress or outfit. I need a yellow bathing suit and gold shoes. If you have any recommendations of stores or dresses you've seen... send 'em on my way! :)
