SCENT. One thing I always try to bring back home from my travels is a perfume or scented candle. For me, there’s such a strong connection between memories and scents that just a sniff of a certain fragrance brings me back in an instant. During my trip to Mexico I made sure to stop by the wonderful boutique hotel/perfumery Coqui Coqui (definitely a must if you’re ever in Tulum!) and stocked up on two lovely scents that will keep me daydreaming about Tulum for months. Or well, at least until the bottles run out which might happen pretty soon, these scents are heaven!

DIY. I’m a sucker for beautiful packaging and when my favorite perfumes run out I always keep the bottles because I find them too pretty to throw away. So, when I stumbled upon this picture of a perfume bottle turned vase over at MIJA I just had to share it with you guys. Such a smart, simple way of repurposing your empty perfume bottles!
