I have a weakness for cute accessories. When I saw this phone case which is a mini-replica of the Chanel Perfume Bottle Bag I had to have it! Over the weekend I posted a candid photo on Instagram and a few people were interested in where I got the case so I felt obliged to share the deets here as well.
The silicon phone case comes with a matching chain strap. It’s cute for show but I’m not convinced on its utility. I am extremely reluctant to actually use the strap. I’ve shattered one too many iPhones and the flimsy strap just screams an accident waiting to happen.
Aside from the strap I’m pleased with the case. So far it seems to be durable and the price was affordable. I’m contemplating if I need to order the Black as well. Especially after seeing Ashanti with the case. The Chanel Perfume bottle phone cases are available at Chic Phones for iPhones and the Samsung Note.
I’m in the market for a new wallet. While doing some online window shopping for designer wallets to replace my beloved, yet extremely worn out Gucci wallet I came across these cute card cases by Saint Laurent and Alexander McQueen.

Let’s flashback to a few weeks ago when I popped into Bluemercury for a little shopping. Instead of buying more beauty products that I definitely didn’t need I opted to try something new. I made my first diptyque purchase! While stimulating my senses I was drawn to the limited edition Rosa Mundi candle. I’ve been burning this candle non-stop! I am so obsessed with the scent!
Just like my perfume, I want my home to smell pleasant and welcoming without being overbearing. The Rosa Mundi is just that. It can be best described as a soothing, romantic and sparkling scent, rich with opulent notes of Black currant, Lychee, Damask Rose, Centifolia Rose and Honey. In short floral and sweet.
The outer packaging features a unique love story about the origins of the candle. In case you aren’t able to read it, The Rose Mundi rose was apparently named after Rosamund Clifford, the favorite mistress of King Henry II. (major side eye)
Even though this is my first one I totally get the hype around them. They smell divine! If the price tag deters you here are some quick diptyque candle tips that may convince you to take the plunge. Before lighting your candles trim the wick to 1/4-inch length. By shortening the wick you allow it to burn more slowly and also avoid unsightly black smoke marks around the edge of the glass. After burning out the wax you can clean the candle jars and re-use for small storage and home decor. I can’t wait to explore more from the line.
What are you currently obsessing over?
For the past few weeks I’ve been silently obsessing over what to do with my hair. I’m long over due for a hair change but I am clueless as to what style I should try next. Enter style influencer Kelis. In her recent home tour and closet feature with The Coveteur she flaunts a simple, yet chic curly hairstyle that I’m itching to try.
I just keep staring at this image. I adore everything about it. Kelis consider this a forewarning. In the near feature I will be attempting to re-create this entire beauty look from the full curly hair, down to the pink pout.

On weekends we brunch! This past weekend one of my girlfriends celebrated her birthday with a private at-home brunch. When I received my invitation I was intrigued that it would be catered. My girl knows food so I knew I would be in for a treat!
The strawberry mimosa bar was picture perfect and automatically Pinterest worthy.
The Private Kitchen, a couple and small-party private dining concept catered the brunch. I was expecting typical brunch food but to my surprise it was everything but regular. Brunch guests were served buffet style starting with fresh fruit and yogurt parfaits. Everyone raved about the apple cider and dijon glazed bacon that a certain unnamed guest filled his plate with! I don’t blame him because the food was beyond excellent. I devoured my first plate and even went back for seconds.Here are some flicks of a few of the main dishes.
And of course sweet, alcohol infused cupcakes by Keda Kakes
This brunch experience definitely changed by views on entertaining friends at home. EVERYTHING exceeded my expectations! I highly recommend The Private Kitchen for your next intimate party. Be sure to visit ThePrivateKitchen.com for more information.
