That delightful aroma? Oh, that's just me.

I'm going to have to get used to having this exchange with everyone who comes near me.

My mama and sweet brudder got Olivia and me a fabulous, unique Christmas present: the opportunity to go and mix up our own signature scents. We went to Everyday Indulgence in Tuscaloosa (on Queen City Ave.) and, if you're ever in the area, you owe it to yourself to stop by. They have the most one-of-a-kind jewelry and this fabulous "blending bar" in the back. They have dozens upon dozens of bottles of different oils, and you can mix and match as many as you want. We had to wait for a few minutes behind some other customers, so they brought us this to get started:

This was nothing. We headed back to the bar and had oodles more to pick from. It took a while, but we finally settled.

For Olivia: White Tea Fig & Gardenia lotion, Lavender Eucalyptus bath salts, and Pear Something-Else-Fabulous (don't remember) perfume.

For me: White Tea Fig & Gardenia perfume and Blackberry Sage bath salts. Yall, that perfume smells so good on I can hardly stand it. A student today told me I smelled good, and when I asked her what it smelled like, she said, "Kinda like flowers. But not a lot. Mostly it just smells like 'good' ". I'm fine with mostly just smelling like "good".

Definitely worth a visit if you're ever close by!


  1. What a fun thing to do! Certain scents really can just make you happy!

  2. How fun! Sounds delicious...wish we had one of those around here.


Comments delight me! Thanks for stopping by.
