I'm Loveswept

January 23, 2014

Are you in love? Have you ever been in love? I’m talking about love of another person, your career, a specific time in your life. Isn’t the feeling so wonderful? I’m so excited to share a little romantic story today in the name of Philosophy’s newest fragrance, Loveswept.

I have two major love stories going on in my life at the moment. As you all know, almost 2 years ago I moved to Los Angeles for a career in fashion. I didn’t know a soul, I came alone and I had to leave the love of my life back in Texas. It was an extremely hard move and one of the toughest decisions I’ve ever had to make. But I love fashion; I love styling and I love writing to you guys. I had to persevere for my career—and I did because I love it. At the same time, I was so distraught being away from Chandler. It was hard to go from seeing someone you love every day to twice a month (if we’re lucky). We somehow managed to make it work and are now engaged—so let me tell you, it’s doable. Our love for each other has only grown. I’m definitely ‘Loveswept’ in all ways possible.

You guys know I’m a huge fan of perfumes. I love to display the gorgeous bottles in my bathroom and bedroom. There is something about the way you feel once you’ve spritzed a favorite scent. I don’t know about you, but I feel like a new woman, a little more confident. It’s amazing how a fragrance can literally take you away to a different time with just one sniff. Loveswept definitely takes me away—to a loving, happy, magical place. The soft floral fragrance sparkles with energy and romance. It makes me think of a picnic with Chandler under the Eiffel Tower in Paris. Ahhhh, how wonderful.

Not only does the fragrance smell so lively and romantic you could float away, the packaging is just as lovely—like a work of art! I’m all about product displays in my bathroom and vanity, so I’m instantly drawn to the fabulous and artistic product labels. Beyond the looks of Loveswept, the meaning behind the product stands strong. Loveswept is about happiness, love and getting swept off your feet again and again. It’s about living each day with passion. Whether you love your career, husband, boyfriend, girlfriend, child; love is love.
