New Year, New Scents

My baby loved MJB's perfume!

Happy Friday everyone! This is our first post in 2012!!! We have been relaxing and enjoying the season/new year so I am sorry we haven’t posted in a while. Our Christmas was perfect: we spent it with the ones we truly love and cherish. Surprisingly, we didn’t cook. Mainly because we are always on the go and we just wanted to sit in front of the TV, eat homemade pot pies and be merry! Mom came over and she did the same thing. We all were in pure LMN/ “Criminal Minds” heaven with our unlimited marathons.

Christmas dinner: Pot Pies made with our pie maker!

Santa was good to us and the highlight of my gifts was my Plush Creations that I purchased myself (we’ll chat more about that soon) and my NEW Lancome makeup brushes.

A belle was elated to see that Santa Shermika bought me new brushes. I did my happy dance, but I was even more excited to just spend time with my family. One gift that the sis received (from herself of course) was a new scent that we fell in love with. We have purchased a few excellent and ok perfumes. My sister bought the excellent scent after we purchased a few of Carol Daughter’s/MJB scent: My Life Blossom. I will fill you in on that scent soon.

Have you tried this My Life scent? We saw it on HSN and bought a few for gifts, but didn’t care for it after wearing for several days. I love Carol’s Daughter, but this scent just isn’t for me. To me, it’s too floral and it doesn’t last. After about an hour the scent wasn’t there. It doesn’t smell horrible, but it just isn’t for me.

I like to smell like a flower without smelling like a flower if you know what I mean. My dog seemed to love it and my mom adores it and I think mainly because it’s backed by MJB. She LOVES Mary. I love Mary and Carol’s Daughter, but I can’t  get down with this  scent. The bottle/packaging is beautiful, but that just isn’t enough for this belle. BTW Mary’s new CD is bangin’!! Go get it/download if you haven’t already!! Tried any new scents in the new year? If so, what? Did you enjoy your holidays?

Love this bottle... Mary's name is on the top of the perfume cap!
Carol's Daughter Sea Salt Scrub gifts for friends!
One of my many BEAUTIFUL Plush Creations (This was my gift to myself)!
We made treats for friends!!
He loved all of his Christmas gifts!
We also made goodie bags for other friends!

  1. So glad you girls are back! Can I say that it's freaking amazing you have a pot pie maker! I grew up on those and loved every bit! They're like the ultimate comfort food!

    The Mary J bottle does look gorgeous, but I feel you on the smelling flowers without smelling like a flower thing, subtle is nice.

    You guys made those chocolate treats…ok y'all are the new cake boss's around town as far as I'm concerened.

    Happy New Year!

    1. You are too funny. It's great to be missed! We aren't cake bosses, but we do sell those little treats during the winter months. Mary RULES! We will share more on the pot pie maker soon. When I saw it on TV I knew we had to have it. It's a beautiful little gadget!! And yes, for us too, pot pies are the ultimate comfort food.

  2. Late comment.

    I have been a fan of Criminal Minds since the day it first aired. My must see Wednesday night show. I get lost in marathons all the time even though, I get scared and paranoid when I get up in my room. . ."who's there". haha.

    Well, it is nice to see you ladies . .. um. . belles had a wonderful Christmas. I did too, even if I do have to cook but, that is the way it is (no parents and being the oldest).

    I am very particular about scents, I like some but, it has to smell good on my skin, which some always don't, even if I like how they smell in the bottle. If that sentence made sense. O_o

    1. Yes, Tamika got me into the show. I can barely be home alone now without thinking some unsub is out to get me! Great show, but does drive up the paranoia. Yes, Christmas was great! We didn't do a big meal this year and just kept it really simple. I am particular about scents as well. Some that I like now, I may hate 6 months later. And I do know what you mean about smelling good on your skin versus the bottle!
