Apple Blossom Time #WordlessWednesday

It’s a little early for this blossoming activity because SoCal can’t decide if it’s winter or spring–looks like spring won the contest.

They smell so delicious, I might have to try Helena Rubinstein’s Apple Blossom perfume which was originally released in 1936 and is still in production. The license from Helena Rubinstein was acquired by Kent Cosmetics in 1988 and according to the manufacturer, the formula is still the same.

Hmmm, I’d be curious to see if any human-made scent could duplicate the purity of intense fragrance contained within these five little flower petals. If so, I’d be tempted to bathe in it every day.

Love, Give, GLOW! Beauty For a Cause

Check out this lovely company I’ve curated just for you!
Glow For A Cause

They sent me a sample of the Glow For A Cause solid perfume, Inspire, that’s sweet smelling and heavenly! Here’s what their website says:

She saw in the sunrise endless possibilities…inspire

A decidedly young and uplifting scent with a vibrant blend of florals and a dash of sunny citrus.

When you’re thinking about gift giving or just for YOU because you DESERVE it, shop at a company that gives back, and is organic, vegan/vegetarian!

GLOW for a cause is a beauty company unlike any other. What started out as a quest to create the purest and highest quality body care products and soy candles has evolved into a glowing movement.

Founded by artist, teacher, and skincare productista, Johanna Querry Smith, GLOW for a cause is a passion project that makes both people and the world just a little more beautiful. GLOW for a cause products are made from the finest and purest ingredients available.

Every time you buy a GLOW for a cause product, you are not only pampering yourself, you are giving back 5% to our partner non-profit organizations. Now that’s beauty that GLOWS on the inside and out.
