Body Fantasies NEW Sweet Berry Fantasy

I recently had the opportunity to sample Body Fantasies' newest addition to their Signature line, Sweet Berry Fantasy.

Fruity and feminine with just a hint of floral, this fragrance is flirtatious blend of fresh fruits and the seductive scent of peony.  Top notes include pink grapefruit, peach nectar, succulent red berries, and melon.  Mid notes include jasmine, lily of the valley, and candied rose.  Base notes of sweet musk, white amber, vanilla extract and sheer sandalwood round out this delectable fragrance.  

It retails 8 oz for $6.99, and will be available in Winter 2015 at your local Walmart and drugstores. Just in time to stuff those Christmas stockings!  I do think this is a great fragrance for Spring though, and I'm very happy to have been able to add it to my fragrance rotation.

Other fragrances in the Signature line include:

Pink Vanilla Kiss Fantasy
Delectable juicy peach and berries open this fragrance, while soft florals round out the middle.  The base, comprised of woods and musk is beautifully crafted to create a feminine, fruity, gourmand experience.

Fresh White Musk
A blend of fresh clean natural scents.  Bright white florals with a mix of soft musks. 

Japanese Cherry Blossom
Swirling petals from the Japanese Cherry Blossom tree inspire this romantic fragrance, full of desire and charm.  Long lasting blend of oriental notes transform into a feminine dry down of fresh cherry blossom, succulent rose, and seductive amber.

Pink Sweet Pea Fantasy
Blissful florals and sparkling fruits are masterly mingled and naturally long lasting.

Classic fragrance combining the clean scents of creamy vanilla, jasmine, fresh apples, and white musks.

Twilight Mist
Mesmerizing and mysterious.  Featuring notes of coconut, fresh plum, and mandarin.  

I was able to sample the Sweet Berry Fantasy, along with Japanese Cherry Blossom, Vanilla, Twilight Mist, and Pink Sweet Pea Fantasy.  I love them ALL, though my definite favorite was the Sweet Berry Fantasy.  I'm so glad they've added it to their lineup.

Old fashioned fragrance tip:  Spritz a little on a cotton ball and tuck it into your bra!  Your chosen fragrance will have you smelling great all day without being too overpowering.

My daughters were delighted with these as well, especially my almost nine year old.  She says her favorite would have to be Twilight Mist, with Vanilla coming in as a close second.

I love that these body sprays are all under $10 for such a large size...they're so inexpensive that I can change up my scent based on my mood or the season easily.  I think next time I'm in Walmart I'll need to pick up a bottle of the Pink Vanilla Kiss Fantasy as that sounds absolutely lovely for Spring as well!  As you can tell I am so ready for sunshine and flowers!  I'll have to pick a few up for my daughters too, maybe for their Easter baskets!  I know they have several of their fragrances available in travel size minis, so that would be just perfect for the Easter Bunny to hop on by with!

Earn a Little Extra Cash

I have been doing surveys for years. I think I started when I was still in high school. It's something I can do a few minutes here and a few minutes there, on my own time.  I actually make enough to cover most gifts for holidays, though lately I keep splurging on cute retro style clothing for ME! :D

My most recent Amazon dress purchases, covered completely by Amazon gift cards I earned!  ChaCHING!

I get asked all the time what survey companies I use, so here are a couple that I work with:

Harris Poll Online
Que Opinas

I also highly recommend My Points.  You get points for surveys, and clicking emails.  You can also earn points from shopping through them, but I rarely do and still earn plenty!  If you would like a referral just drop a comment and I'm happy to send one!

And don't forget about Swagbucks!  Not only can you earn points for searching with them, but also for watching videos and completing surveys as well.  I allllmost have enough for a $25 gift card with them.  I can earn $50+  a month if I make sure to hit my daily goals each day.

Are there any that you have had good results with?  I'd love to hear about them!

PUG Memes

I am a huge fan of Pinup Girl Clothing.  They often have fun contests and right now, they're doing a meme contest.  Their top three favorites will win a gift certificate.  I hiiiiiighly doubt I'll win, but I had fun making a few!  This is the one I shared.

Check them out on Instagram, I was cracking up!  #pugmeme

My Inner Disney Nerd is Geeking Out

Eeep!  I saw the trailer when I went to see Into the Woods.  I'm excited to see this movie!  I love the idea of making movies based on areas of the Disney theme parks.  
Director Brad Bird, and Producer Damon Lindelof participated in a Q&A earlier today on Facebook.  You can check it out here.
In theaters May 22nd!
