* Beauty Breakdown of the Week:
In my experience, motherhood and smelliness generally go hand in hand. On any given day I’m discovering a new, disgusting smell in my life: dried milk that spilled in the bottom of my purse unbeknownst to me, or peanut butter in my hair thanks to 10 tiny toddler fingers. And even though my reaction to new smells is more Daria thanÂ Sid The Science Kid, I know I need to take action before I become that mom (you know, the one who smells like lost sanity and Similac).
Luckily, perfume was invented to counteract the overwhelming smell of children, and help you pretend you’re a woman again. I love searching for designer perfumes that are on sale (like the many selections from this Perfume website), or even French perfumes so I can pretend I’m sophisticated (pronounced Parfums). Even though husband’s have a small say in what perfume we wear (mine loves Clinique Perfume like “Happy”), I love using products that do the work for me. For example, if your body wash or lotions smell amazing, it’s an easy way to smell good on the go without spending a ton of money. Comprendre?
