On Saturday morning, I headed over to my sister’s house for our annual Galentine Brunch! Each year, we dress up in head to toe pink and get together with our best girlfriends for a long mimosa filled brunch, and it’s one of my very favorite Valentine traditions. This year, my sister outdid herself and made homemade funfetti cinnamon rolls! We were all in girly Valentine heaven. Best morning ever.

I have a serious love hate relationship with perfume! I love wearing it, and I love the way it makes me feel extra feminine and the way it looks on my vanity. But, I mostly hate perfumes because the majority of them give me an INSTANT headache! I have just a few perfumes that I actually love and can wear. When I heard about Tory Burch’s new perfume, I was both excited and skeptical. After reading the perfume’s “notes”, I figured I could give it a whirl and see what happened. I sprayed a bit on for our date night on Friday (which in hindsight was fairly risky!). Halfway through the night, I realized I didn’t have a head ache and was SO excited! I’ve been wearing it non-stop since. It’s the perfect mix of feminine and floral. If you haven’t tried it out, you should! I think you’ll love it!

On Sunday night, I whipped up a MASSIVE bowl of guacamole and headed over to my Brother-in-law and Sister-in-law’s home to watch the Super Bowl. I have got to be honest with you, I wasn’t even 100% sure who was playing, but I knew two things: 1. Gaga, 2. Guac. I knew it was going to be a good night, and I wasn’t wrong! We had the best time snacking, chatting, and watching. Plus, come on, Lady Gaga killed it! Such a fun night!

  1. 2 ripe Avocados
  2. 1/4 Lime (juiced)

  1. I saw the Galentine’s Brunch on Instagram and thought it looked adorable! I also hosted a Galentine’s party at my place but it was in the evening and we had chocolate fondue and wine 🙂

    I saw that Tory Burch perfume online and want to test out the scent. I also get headaches with strong scents, so I am curious if this works for me or not.


    • Your Galentine’s party sounds SO fun! Wine and chocolate fondue?! You know how to throw a party, Vicky!

      Yes, definitely give the Tory Burch scent a try. I literally didn’t have a headache at all, which is a serious miracle. I hope the same thing happens to you!
