Monday Edition: My Favorite Things

I have vivid memories from childhood of playing in my Nanny's jewelry box. Her jewelry box contained all kind of treasures from beautiful necklaces to exquisite rings. She also had several ornate and beautiful compacts that held solid perfume. She probably still has her collection of solid perfumes, but I haven't played in her jewelry box in a really long time.

On a recent trip to the local organic grocery store, I renewed my love of solid perfumes. There I found a collection of solid perfumes that made me fall in love all over again. The perfume is from Pacifica. I chose the gardenia scent which is not pictured here. I love keeping this tiny tin of perfume in my purse. It is a great way to freshen up my scent through out the day.



In my search for solid perfumes, I also came across this perfume from Victoria's Secret. Not only does it smell great, but it comes in a precious flower ring!



Solid perfumes are usually rather inexpensive, and they are so much fun! The next time you are in the market to try a new scent definitely check out a cute solid perfume!

I have the same memories from my grandmother too! She used to have the best treasures and solid perfume compacts and rings.

I saw the ring in this post at VS and it was cute! I'll have to check out those Pacifia perfumes.
