Fall Fragrance

I went on a bike ride this morning instead of running.

I decided not to go running this morning because I ran 3 miles yesterday morning and 3 miles after school with the kids’ running club, so I thought it would be best to give my bum knee a little break.


I am really enjoying my bike rides! It will never replace my running, but while I’ve been recovering from the half-marathon, I am all about the biking! Plus, I know I’ve got to get as many rides in before snow is on the ground for 6-7 months!! UGH!

It was pitch black outside when I started my ride this morning and only a hint of light when I was finishing up.





I had some spinach in the fridge to use, so I whipped up a Green Monster Protein Smoothie this morning after my bike ride. I am not a huge fan of using just spinach for a salad, so if I don’t have any other type of lettuce on hand, I’ll use my spinach to make a Green Monster instead.

In the smoothie:

– milk

– frozen banana

– spinach

– vanilla extract

– chia seeds

– soy protein powder


I also had a piece of toast with peanut butter and jam.



I am in search of a new fragrance for fall/winter.

Right now I currently use No. 3 L’Imperatrice by Dolce and Gabbana.

But as you can see from the description, it is a very spring/summery scent:

Notes consist of: Rhubarb, Red Currant, Juicy Kiwi, Pink Cyclamen, Watemelon Accord, Jasmine Petal, Musky Notes, Sandalwood, Grapefruit Wood.



I did spray some Gucci Guilty on my wrist at the department store the other day and really liked it!

The gal at the counter said guys really like this scent too.

Notes: Mandarin, Pink Pepper, Peach, Lilac, Geranium, Amber, Patchouli.
Style: Daring. Rich. Sexy.

Does anyone own this?

What fragrance are you (will you) be wearing this fall/winter?

  1. Mmmmm…green monsters are all over this morning! Love it!
    I adore Amazing Grace by Philosophy, year round. It’s light and fresh and perfect for me!

    Knowing how much you love the Midwest, and family…I thought I’d link you to my post for today…where I introduce 2 new love’s in my life! My Dad’s a Minnesota boy himself. His pup is not…but, you can’t win them all!


    Have a great day!

  2. Pretty much every thing I use is scent free–it makes me sneeze and gives me headaches. I can’t even walk past a Bath&Body or any of those stores without my eyes tearing up.
