So yeah, it's superficial. We're talking about scent, but it's more than that...don't you think. This is a conversation about vibes, about feeling good, about confidence. Not into nice smelling stuff? All good! But for those who are...you've come to the right place.
MISC IDEAS FOR A TOP NOTCH SCENT
put orange blossom water and rose water in a spray bottle...el cheapo body mist // lush bath bombs are the holy grail. take long baths as you read books with your bath bombs, crumble them up and put them in your washing machine, wash your underwear in lush bath bomb water // find a perfume you love, stick by it, wait for a reinforced sense of identity // blow all your money on overpriced hand cream, have incredibly soft hands // put fresh flowers in your bra // make a scrub of brown sugar and olive oil, exfoliate for too long, wash it off // moisturise after the shower, lather it up until you are as soft as ever // invest in essential oils, put them behind you ears // have a really hot shower, lather up nice shower gels, //

SUBSTANCE & JUSTIFICATION
Smelling good is the kind of thing you should do for yourself. Life's a thrilling game when your constantly inhaling the sweet smells of rose and sugar and coconut because you made a good decision with your body lotion. And writing this feels really odd, as I try to mask my passion for shower gel and lotion. But it's the kind of superficial confidence booster that we shouldn't have to justify. I'm all about feel, all about vibes and, along with coffee and morning exercise, for me, smelling good gets the vibes going for a good day.
I am writing this in advance, as when it's live on BPC...I'll be in India. How exciting! I"ll let you know what I get up to. I really hope you're all having a megaly body positive day today! I'd love to know how you are, what your favourite scents are, whatever's on your mind!
Kisses and body lotion,
