As I laid there cuddling him, I realized just how much I love his pug smell, which we call “Frito face” in our house. It’s like “Frito feet” that a lot of dogs have, but (obviously) on his face. (Don’t worry, we clean his squishy face with wipes every other week or so.) I told Mal that I love Murphy’s “Frito face,” and he agreed it’s one of his favorite smells too.
Other smells I love…
Freshly ground coffee from Starbucks
During my junior and senior years of high school and my freshman year of college, I worked at Starbucks as a barista. Besides manning the bar and making delicious drinks, my other favorite duty was grinding beans for customers. I loved scooping the fresh whole beans from the drawers, pouring them into the grinder, and enjoying the smells that developed. I pretty much love the smell of any freshly ground coffee, but Starbucks is one of my favorites.
Vanilla (or yellow) cake with vanilla frosting is one of my favorite things ever to eat, but I also just love the smell of vanilla frosting—even artificial vanilla frosting smells… Bonne Bell Vanilla Lip Smacker, Pinnacle Cake Vodka, scented candles, lotion… if it smells like vanilla frosting, I’ll probably love it!
Rose The One by Dolce & Gabbana
I was never a big perfume person until my friend Ashley gave me Rose The One by Dolce & Gabbana. It’s really subtle with a soft rose smell that’s sophisticated, but still sort of fun too. I have 3 fragrances in my regular rotation now, but this one is by far my favorite. It smells pretty!
Pretty much any Yankee Candle
I have no idea how they make their candles smell so amazing, but I love pretty much all Yankee Candles. Whenever I see one of their stores, I always make it a point to go in. I end up smelling a million different candles and always leave with a headache from overdoing it! Haha!
Yesterday’s breakfast was a French Toast Breakfast Scramble with a couple of scoops of Teddie peanut butter and a glass of iced Dandy Blend (because we ran out of decaf coffee). I actually missed drinking Dandy Blend. I can’t say that I like it more than coffee, but it is really delicious. It has more of an espresso than coffee flavor, so it’s just different—delicious, of course, but different.
