Dream a Little Dream with Marc Jacobs' Daisy Dream

The most intimidating question I could ever be asked is, “where do you want to be in 5 years?” Talk about putting me on the spot! At least when it comes to dreams, I don’t feel as much pressure, and that’s what

MARC JACOBS Daisy Dream Eau de Toilette Spray is all about. Dreams can be creative and inspiring, freeing and vulnerable, and most of all, yours!

And smelling this new Daisy Dream puts some fun into it and though I never thought of creating a dream capsule before, through the Marc Jacobs website, you can create your own here (insert link to create dream capsule). What’s fun is that after you submit it and your email address, the site will email you one year later to see if any of it came true! You can also enter the Marc Jacobs Dream Daisy sweepstakes for the chance to win weekly prizes including Marc Jacobs fragrances, accessories, and the grand prize: a Marc Jacobs experience you thought you could only dream of. I can’t even imagine what that prize will be!

Below is my dream capsule. So how does it relate to my dreams? Travel! I would like to visit some new places and ones I’ve explored before like Indonesia, Europe, and of course NYC, which has been on my list for the past year!

And coming from the music world, I love that he put together a playlist to capture the spirit of his Daisy Dream fragrance in music. Find it here.

This scent is light, airy, floral, and fruity with top notes of blackberry, fresh grapefruit, and pear, middle notes of jasmine, lychee, and blue wisteria all on a bed of white woods, musk, and coconut water. Since we’re going into a season transition, this is a nice option for just that. I’m not quite ready to let go of summer, but I’m slowing getting used to the idea of fall.

This Week’s Fixation!

It seems like every week I get fixated on something I need, want or want/need to do. And it can be triggered by anything! For example, I was cruising through Pinterest a few days ago and while I have seen knuckle rings many times before and even own a set of three that fit on the top part of my ring finger, I saw some that were more than just a single band that I became fixated on!

While I get fixated on beauty products … a lot, I also get obsessed with other things, so I’m starting an on-going feature called This Week’s Fixation! Some will be about or include beauty, some won’t, so stay tuned and please share your current obsession with me in the comments, won't you?

Below is a glimpse into what this week's borderline obsession is! So what is it? Click after the pic.

2 Must-Have Beauty Oils

I guess you could say I’m pretty obsessed with beauty oils these days. And here are two more that really do the job nicely.

Clinique-Take-the-Day-Off-Cleansing-Oil-and-Bikini-Soft-Smooth-Shave-Oil

BIKINI SOFT Smooth Shave Oil ($7.99/4oz @ bikinisoft.com) – shaving cream is fine but oil seems to give me better traction and thus a closer shave. This one is made with oils like safflower, avocado, sandalwood, aloe and vitamin E, among others. They also have a sample .5oz size available, which is shown in the picture, but it didn’t have a price next to it. 

CLINIQUE Take the Day Off Cleansing Oil ($27/6.7oz @ sephora.com) – the way the formulas turned from a clear oil into a thin milky mixture reminded me of this one. And it worked just as well to remove the day’s dirt and makeup without and tugging or harsh rubbing.
