I am one of those gals who always has too many bottles of perfume. Since I've realized just how many bottles I have, when I really, really like a perfume, I buy the absolute smallest bottle.

Every year, we make it a point to go somewhere and relax for at least two days as an official vacation. And by every year, I mean, every year since we were married.

Lollia Relax is such a wonderful fragrance. It truly is relaxing. I love this scent on days where I'm wearing cozy sweaters, planning a romantic night with my husband or just snuggling up in bed with my kitten and watching a movie. It makes me feel cozy and warm.

That took serious willpower! While on our second vacation, we traveled a bit to this wonderful orchard called Friske's. The food there is phenomenal, there are wonderful outdoor activities and there are great little shops inside. That's where I found this scent:
