Finding a new perfume that suits my personal style is amazing. I enjoy refreshing my scent seasonally, and even changing it up daily! According to my mood and the weather. Using a new perfume in my daily routine brings me such joy and contentment. It’s uplifting, revitalizing, and calming when the scent rises to my nostrils. I relate using a new perfume to receiving a manicure or spa day.

How To Make Perfume Last Longer

Finding a perfect or signature scent is the first step. Making the fragrance last all day is the next. After freshening up, I like to apply lotion to my skin. While still in the steamy bathroom, I then apply the scent with one spray to my neck and one spritz to my wrist. Moisturized skin holds fragrance the best. It also helps it stay on for longer periods of time. I’ve even heard of using Vaseline on the pulse points, before spraying. If I’m not using the scent directly on me, then I enjoy spraying a couple spritz’ of perfume into the air. Right before walking into it. This creates a lighter scent that embodies the hair and outfit. It is less overwhelming. A favorite of those who prefer a delicate, barely-there fragrance.

Acca Kappa Review

I came across Acca Kappa on Instagram and adore their innovative and chic concept. Acca Kappa is known for their signature Unisex Parfum. The scent is White Moss. Created with great care using precious Lavender and Juniper essential oils. For men and women. Top notes of Lemon, Bergamot, Juniper, Citrus Accord, heart notes of Aldehyde Notes, Cardamom, Lavender, Sweet Woods and base notes of White Musk, Amber Accord, Cedar wood and Musks. This scent is definitely a new favorite of mine! It’s classic, clean, and bright. The packaging is crisp, with a black and silver bottle. I was lucky enough to receive a smaller version of the Tilia Cordata Parfum for Women and the Wisteria Parfum for Women as well.

The Tilia Cordata is a floral scent perfect for spring and summer. It’s ultra feminine. The Wisteria Parfum is a fresher scent, which is feminine as well. But comparatively similar to a powdery, right-out-of-the-shower fragrance. Acca Kappa describes the Tilia as “A floral citrusy fragrance with top notes of Bergamot, Lemon, Petit Grain, Neroli, heart notes of Linden Blossom, Magnolia, Jasmine, Rose and base notes of Cedarwood, Amber, Tonka Bean and White Musk.” While the Wisteria Parfum is listed as “A warm and enchanting Eau de Parfum with refined top notes of Lemon, Bergamot, Exotic Fruits and Melon. Heart notes of Wisteria, White Lily, Magnolia, Lilac and base notes of Heliotrope, Amber, Vanilla, Musk & Sandalwood.” Additionally, these scents are perfect for layering. For example, using the White Moss with a more feminine scent, such as the Tilia or Wisteria.

Overall, I am loving Acca Kappa. The perfumes are fresh, clean, and delightful. I am so impressed with this brand. I’ve also received several compliments in just two days of wearing their scents.

Taking a long flight has its perks and downfalls. While it’s exciting traveling to a new place, the flights can sometimes become dull and irritating. I like to keep as busy as possible on a flight, making it go by faster and keeping me calm. Some of my favorite tips keep my mind and hands distracted. I also have tips for flying with a pet here!

Candy + Meal Time

If you’re lucky enough to fly first class, they will obviously include your meals. When I’m flying coach, I like to bring something packaged that will last a few hours before being eaten. No matter which class I’m flying, I also love to bring lots of candy and gum! This gives me something to secondarily focus on. Keeping my mind occupied. Whether I’m reading a magazine, watching a movie, or on my phone. I find snacking or chewing gum distracts me for at least a little while. Plus its yummy. Win-win.

Reading Material

I switch up reading material from books to magazines. I like to purchase a few magazines to read in case there’s no Wifi on the flight for some reason. The magazine keeps me busy while the excitement of the flight dies down. Once I’m bored with reading those, I’ll take a break and work from my phone/laptop or watch a movie. Once I’m bored with the digital world, I’ll go back and read a book. This takes my mind away  from the plane and once again, distracts me from the oh-so-boring flight. I normally bring a book with me and purchase magazines at the airport. However, I should purchase both beforehand to save money. Convenience gets the better of me.

Digital Distractions

If you’re blessed with Wifi on the flight, this can consume your entire trip. Without ever needing another distraction. Hello social media. JetBlue now actually offers FREE Wifi on every single one of their flights. Hallejulah. I like to bring my MacBook for work, when switching off from my phone. Having both keeps me the busiest. I also do this when working from home, so it’s a normal situation. There are also movies on most flights now. I like to time my flight by watching movies too. For example, I’ll read for as long as I can. Then watch a movie (about 2 hours down), then have a snack/meal, distract with my phone/laptop then watch another movie (2 more hours cut off). This honestly makes the time fly by. (No pun intended, or was it?)

Keep Moving

I get up to stretch my legs, stand up a bit, and use the ladies room every 1-2 hours. This helps circulation as well as keeping the body busy. I normally get extremely restless on flights and need to move around when possible. I love the aisle seat because of this reason! I don’t recommend doing this if you have a middle or window seat. Unless you don’t mind disturbing your fellow seat mates.

Sleep It Off

Some people can fall right asleep on flights. This is especially true for red eyes. I have always wished I could sleep on flights. I normally end up falling half asleep, and then waking up in a jolted gasp with a few people looking over at me. (Embarrassing). Consequently, I personally do not like to sleep on flights and prefer a day time trip. But I do know plenty of people who will sleep for most of the journey as if it was nothing. So, if you can sleep in public, then definitely do so. You will wake feeling refreshed and have extra energy for the trip ahead.

I’m one of those people that don’t like to go all out theme wise for holidays, but instead will meet halfway. I picked this outfit because it’s preppy and summery, with a hint of patriotism. The fuchsia pink keeps this look fun and exciting, while the navy hat and white jeans add to the classic Memorial Day style.

I added a bright statement necklace and bangle that matched the fuchsia color and kept this outfit just bold enough for summers warm weather. Normally I wouldn’t bring my LV to the beach, and I highly recommend you don’t either, but it went with this outfit perfectly!
