Top 8’s of 2018: fragrance

The end of 2018 is upon us and I am not sad to see it go. A few highlights of this personally dismal year have been the exceedingly good wax hauls I've enjoyed.

Fall Fun Series II: The Finale

Although this will be a bittersweet summer that won't be the same... Continue Reading →
