Scent Trunk Customized Fragrances


If you love discovering new fragrances, then you'll want to try out Scent Trunk, which customizes a fragrance for you based on your unique preferences. To get started on creating your scent, a Scent Trunk Fit Kit is sent to you with a sample palette of six core scents - Citrus, Woods, Aromatic, Floral, Amber and Chypre. Once you get your kit, take the quiz at scenttrunk.com/test, to share which notes you enjoyed the most. After submitting your Scent Test, your preferences are sent to the lab.

Your Scent Trunk custom fragrance is then designed. A 30-day supply of your custom fragrance is shipped for $11.99/month + free shipping if you decide to opt in (you can also cancel at any time). If you end up not liking the fragrance that is sent you, a new fragrance will be formulated for you the next month, free of charge. 

For my own Scent Trunk experience, once my fragrance was created, I received an email with my tracking number to let me know my fragrance was shipped and on its way. I was excited to receive my customized fragrance, and was pleasantly surprised at how much I love my new fragrance! My fragrance came with a spray card / scent details on its herbaceous notes. My colleagues at work really liked the scent, too. I really feel like this scent is really my style. My perfumer, Sarah McCartney, UK did an amazing job!

Top Notes:
Lavender, Absinthe, Rosemary

Middle Notes:
Sandalwood, Almond, Hay

Base Notes: 
Moss, Woods

Scent Trunk makes a unique gift for yourself, friend or family member. It is also easy to share the Scent Test with a friend. 

1.5% of all Scent Trunk sales to the Brain and Behavior Research Foundation, because aromatherapy has been long used in many cultures as a treatment for depression. Their goal is to identify causes, improve treatments, and one day prevent and cure mental illness.

Mara Hoffman Sample Sale Shopping Haul


So I made it to the last afternoon of the Mara Hoffman sample sale, where all items were 30% off of the sample sale price for the last day of the sale. Several people were allowed into the small fitting room at once, for a total of 10 minutes. Originally I went to the sale with the intention of getting a one piece bathing suit and a dress and ended up with a few more pieces. 

I ended up getting a Lattice Bustier One Piece for $52.50 (retails for $260), although the halter straps were missing, matching sarong scarf for $35 (retails for $100), Criss Cross Dress for $63 (retails for $298), Rainbow Flag Stripe Maxi dress for $80.50 (retails for $268), and a leaf ruffle top for $38.50 (retails for $185). 

This was the first Mara Hoffman sample sale I have been to that was hosted by 260 Sample Sale and I definitely look forward to the next one! As a reference, I included the original sample sale pricing at the start of the sale.

CVS Pharmacy Health & Beauty Innovations


In April I attended an interactive brand showcase hosted by CVS Pharmacy. Media and influencer guests got to preview new health & beauty innovations and new products. 

I was really excited about the launch of K-Beauty HQ, started rolling out in April to 2,100 CVS Pharmacy stores nationwide and on CVS.com. With 100+ new and exclusive trendsetting products, CVS Pharmacy has partnered with K-Beauty expert Alicia Yoon, founder of influential K-Beauty e-retailer, Peach & Lily, to curate the selection. 

Four exclusive brands you'll find within K-Beauty HQ at CVS include Alicia Yoon's own Peach Slices, waterless fruit-based Frudia skincare, Elisha Coy with naturally-derived effective ingredients such as snail mucin to help replenish skin's moisture and support cell regeneration, and pore-focused JJYoung by Caolion, with masks that steam and cool for facials on the go. 

Also new to CVS Pharmacy is K-Beauty brand Ariul, with their exclusive EGG Collection, which is infused with egg oil to help reduce inflammation, boost elasticity and fight free radicals for a radiant, brighter complexion. Other K-Beauty brands with a presence at the new K-Beauty HQ include The Saem, Holika Holika and additional collections from Ariul

Beauty and skincare brands at the preview included MUA, Mineral Fusion, Wunder2, Vichy, Skinfix, and Pacific Shaving. As for vitamins and dietary supplements, I was happy to see new products from Zarbee's and Emergen-C. I've recently been trying out the Sambucol Black Elderberry Gummies too, which supports immunity. I love the berry flavor and I've been looking for a supplement that supports the immune system so I think I may have to take this regularly from now on!

I also love stocking up on snacks at CVS, especially for the office. Some of my new favorites include Larabar Chocolate Macaroon Bites, Go Raw Choco Crunch Sprouted Cookies, barkTHINS, Fig Bar and Emmy's Organic Vanilla Bean Organic Coconut Cookies.
