Picks of the week

Ramadan is already in full swing, which means shorter office timing and longer timing for everything else and I'm definitely enjoying every bit of it while it lasts. This weekend has been quite uneventful since we decided to stay home-bound, but I did manage to finish off some chores and catch some episodes of Game of Thrones with the husband while dreaming of a trip to Morocco (one of our dream destinations) hopefully this Eid if everything goes as planned.

Here's another round of my hand-picked goodies this week same as what I did last time, which are just perfect for a lazy weekend spent relaxing at home, in hopes that maybe you can pick a fave or two to try and enjoy for yourself too. :)

The sweet gourmand pack has always been my choice when it comes to home fragrances. From cupcakes to ice creams, I really have a thing with the flavor vanilla, and when you add a whiff of cinnamon in its mix, there's just no way I could say no. This is why I just had to get my hands on this Cinnamon Spiced Vanilla scented candle from Bath and Body Works during their crazy sale a couple of weeks ago. Now our home has been smelling so deliciously good because of it.

Speaking of vanilla, Soap & Glory's Clean, Girls body wash smells so divine as well. It has a fruity and floral punch to it also and unlike other harsh soaps and body wash, this one is non-drying at all. The creamy formula is very hydrating and lathers so well, which to me is important to feel clean and fresh after a shower especially in this summer heat. Forgot how many times I've said this about Soap & Glory, but their product line's pink and vintage packaging is just utterly cute!

I'm also all about these two candy-colored nail polishes from Nature Republic which I got from a Sasa beauty haul during our last trip to Hong Kong. These shades look ridiculously summery and fun!
The beautiful cover illustration of F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Beautiful and The Damned had me at first hello. It's his second novel, a lustrous satire of a marriage on the rocks set on a glamorous and Jazz-era New York City. Not yet halfway-through it though and I haven't read a classic in a while to be honest, so this is a welcome change.

I received this bottle of Burberry Weekend perfume as a birthday present from my friends Natasha and Marie and have only started using it this past week. As a loyal Issey Miyake fan, this scent came off too strong at first spray but once it sets on the skin, it's actually quite refreshing. The powdery scent is a mix of clean and sweet that is unexpectedly long-lasting. This perfume received my husband's seal of approval too. So thanks girls for this classic!

What are your favorites this week?
