Love this post with gorgeous pictures, from Beauty Bets. “The older I get the less I think of style in terms of fashion or trends, and more in terms of self expression and feeling good in your own skin.” Yes, yes, yes.

21 Smells ’90s Girls Will Never Forget. Blast from the past–I’m lookin’ at you, Dr. Pepper Lip Smacker, fruit erasers, and The Body Shop Dewberry bath beads!

Pastel sugared biscuits–great idea for Easter!
