How to wear fragrance in today’s day

Hi ya Gorgeous!
Thank you for tuning in today and special shout out and thank you to the new subscribers! I appreciate you joining in for the "Summer of Somethin'!" 



Today's video I share some favorite scents that I am wearing now. Yes. Wearing now!
Even though there is a fresh 30 day lock down in place, I choose to focus on the good of the situation and possibilities in the outcome. 
If you aren't familiar with Jocko Willink and "good" - then please check out his resources here: https://echelonfront.com/jocko-willink/ 
He has a great podcast, and his Instagram feed is always full of positive encouragement.

I absolutely love fragrance and personally, I think, you could wear it daily, even now, because of the positive scent memories that are ingrained in you from when you wore perfume pre-pandemic.

So give it a try! Use your fragrances now, today, in this day because if not now, when?

Filler’ up Friday - how to add power steering fluid

Hi ya Gorgeous!
Happy Friday and happy beginning of the weirdest Memorial Day weekend ever!

 

I'm getting ready for a road trip and naturally, that means to check the fluids and tires on the ol' family truckster.
I've already checked the oil, radiator and reservoir, windshield wiper fluid, transmission fluid and tire pressure. I noticed when giving the engine a look over - looking for anything funky or out of place, perhaps a hose the is about to crack and showing signs of wear? Nope. Not what I found - what I did discover is that the power steering fluid was low.

I love Lucas Oil products. I'm a fan. When I am at the Walmart or auto store, it's what I go for without question. I'm not sponsored or paid to say loving things about the brand, it's just good stuff. Lucas Oil products are about the same price as other major brands and in some cases may be just a dollar or so more. Totally worth the price and satisfaction!

Last Minute Mother's Day Gift Ideas


 Hi ya Gorgeous!
Well, Mother's day is here and it's time to plan a shelter in home celebration. There are some easing of stay at home orders and you may possibly on Sunday be able to go out to a restaurant to celebrate?
Just in case here are a few ideas to help you create a fun memory making event at home.





Is Mom a wine drinker? This stemless glass is great - even if she's not a cocktail sipper, this  glass is a fun way to commemorate the strange days and celebrate at the same time.  Available on Amazon!

Candles are always a great gift!  Your Mom can use these to have the house smell less like "shelter in place" and more like an at home spa! Order on Amazon today to have delivery in time for Mother's day!


Some Moms it seems have everything - so why not a gift card so she can order what she wants? The best thing about this option is that it can be totally digital and if your Mom is far away, you can email a digital gift card and she can receive in email and use at her convenience.


Good luck shopping for Mom and may you have a wonderful celebration!

There is good news on the horizon as the quarantine shelter in place orders are slowly being rolled back. I'm so looking forward to going to the each and into the forest. My local bakery has reopened as of yesterday and I'm full of baguette and vanilla choux! So good!

So the case of wine for Mother's day has revealed a bottle of Woodbridge and little did my son know I had already secured a can of Woodbridge for my upcoming quarantine birthday celebration. Huzzah!


Today's video will introduce you to a great affordable wine that comes in your choice of bottle or can! Thank you for watching, subscribing and sharing. If you have a great $10 wine recommendation, please share!
