Acca Kappa Review + How To Make Perfume Last Longer

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.

Best Lotion For Winter Dry Itchy Skin

I love using the new Dove DermaSeries in my skincare routine to stay moisturized. The products textures are so silky and gentle! Perfect for day time and night time use. The body lotion is amazing for daily use! It’s clean, and doesn’t feel too thick. One thing I hate about using lotion in the morning is that sticky feeling I get throughout the day. This lotion doesn’t give me that feeling.

I also love the repairing balm. It’s similar to an ointment base but feels like lotion. This I love to use on my super dry areas. Such as elbows, knees, feet, and stretch marks. Especially at night. It can also be combined with the body lotion. Providing skin with extra moisture.

Best Lotion For Winter Dry Itchy Skin

The face wash wasn’t particularly right for my combination skin. It gave my face a very nourished feeling. But I wouldn’t use it before wearing makeup. If I had dry facial skin, it may be perfect. Because my combination skin can easily turn oily throughout the day. I tend to avoid using any lotions, creams, or hydrating textures before makeup. However, if I’m staying in for the day. Without makeup. Than I will use moisturizing products.

Pink Tulle Midi Skirt and White Crop Top Outfit

I’ve been searching for the perfect crop top to wear with high waisted bottoms for quite some time now. Especially this skirt. I’ve looked high and low but couldn’t find a perfect basic that matched with everything. One day, while browsing the streets of San Francisco. I came across the cutest boutique. One of the stylists suggested this white crop top. It fit perfectly! The fabric is super stretchy so it hugs all of my curves. It has tank top straps and shows just enough skin. Obviously, I had to buy it in black as well. I’ve already worn them three times since purchasing. Because they match with literally all of my high waisted bottoms: Pants, skirts, jeans. Honestly, I was so relieved when I bought these crop tops.

For this outfit in particular. I decided to wear my silver statement necklace and keep everything else fairly simple. The floral tulle skirt really speaks for itself. I also paired it with flats. Because honestly, my feet were HURTING from walking around earlier in heels. 😉 The pink metallic sunglasses also matched well with this outfit. As well as the gold ring.

7 Ways To Make a Small Room Appear Larger

If you have a small space and are concerned with the size of it, don’t fret! There are so many interior design techniques that can help your room or house appear larger than it actually is. Here are some of my favorites:

  1. Add a trim to the ceiling, doors, and outlines of the room. This adds structure to the space, creating a larger atmosphere. I prefer white trim on a lighter base color. Or adding a pop of color to a light base, etc. Something that will contrast the different shades. Trim at the top of the ceiling draws the eye upwards.
  2. Keep it light. Using light and bright colors on your walls will open up the space. You know how white clothing makes people look bigger? And dark clothing (think – black) makes people look smaller? Well, it’s the same thing with interior design! Thank you color theory. Keeping things light and using colors like white, light beige, egg, bone, pastels, make the room look bigger.
  3. Use mirrors whenever possible. This create depth within a space. Giving more light and reflective surfaces creates almost a double vision. I especially love a mirror at the end of a long hallway, on the backside wall of a dining table, and above a fireplace. Placing the mirror at the end of the space, adjacent to it’s opening, is where the reflect will give the most help.
  4. Use multi-purpose shelving and drawers. Such as an ottoman with a spacious center, drawers in the coffee table, drawers in the bed frame, or a fold out desk.

Shop Interior Pieces

 

 

  1. Statement furniture. Choose one or two pieces, maybe a large couch and coffee table, to fill the room. This creates less clutter and keeps everything looking clean. As compared to one couch, two chairs, one ottoman, one coffee table…. you get the idea.
  2. Stripes! Stripes are an obvious choice. You can put them on the floor with a rug elongating the room. Or put delicate striping on the walls. The color choice, boldness, and contrast type is your decision. But stripes can immediately draw the eye upwards. With vertical stripes. Or widen a room with horizontal stripes.
  3. Furniture with exposed legs. This gives the room, and furniture more space. Creating an openness underneath it, makes the overall atmosphere fresher.
