Blossoming Beauty

Good morning, lovelies! Hope you're having a lovely week. J has in DC all week so I've been alone for a few days. Keeping myself busy and doing a few little projects that I've put off for a while. It feels good to get some things accomplished.

One of the benefits of having my other in DC means that I've been lucky enough to get bombarded with text photos of the gorgeous cherry blossoms in bloom down there. Unfortunately I've yet to see anything bloom here yet, never mind anything as gorgeous as cherry blossoms, but I'll take what I can get. Photos will just have to do.

Better yet, maybe I should go and pick up Jo Malone's limited edition fragrance for spring 2011, Sakura Cherry Blossom. The interpretation of cherry blossom is brought to life with layers of rose and mimosa accented with the freshness of bergamot and mandarin. The result is a powdery fragrance, contrasted by a base of musk and wood. Sounds lovely, doesn't it? I think I'll know where I'll be heading on my lunch hour today :)

Hope you all have a fabulous day! xoxo

Beautiful photos! Can't wait to see the first spring flowers here, too! Still cold enough for snow though, so I bet that'll take a while... That perfume sounds lovely!

Gorgeous photos Dawn. All the cherry blossoms are in bloom here in Seville (not great if you suffer with allergies though).
Being a Brit I can't advocate Jo Malone fragrances enough; they are always divine. Pleased you can get them in the US.

Her red hair is gorgeous... I have hair envy. I would love to see the Cherry Blossoms in D.C., they are supposed to be stunning. Enjoy your new fragrance... I always love anything with musk! xo

LOVE cherry blossoms. So feminine and pretty. I have to say I love having M around but the amount of things I can get done when he's not really makes my head spin sometimes.

I took a million Cherry Blossom photos the other day and I love them! I hear DC does have a fabulous Cherry Blossom Festival. Hope you get to go!

The fragrance sounds amazing! I hope you pick it up :)

Even better idea... you should head down here to surprise J and enjoy the blooms together! Aside from the splashes of rain, it is one of my favorite times to be a Washingtonian!
