It only makes Good Scents to drop by

This past weekend was my first trip to the New Jersey shore, specifically Cape May. Unlike most sea shore towns, Cape May has chosen to keep it’s lower capacity but immensely more appealing, unique historic beach houses and inns rather than building concrete monstrosities for the masses. Unfortunately, most inventory of the local shops do not share the same aesthetics so I was extremely delighted when my nose led me to a shop on Carpenters Lane called Good Scents.
Good Scents is an adorable store that carries everything your mind and body might need to spur creativity, calm down after a stressful day or naturally help those sinus issues. I found the overall aesthetics of the store (especially the scents) to be extremely inspiring.

Here a are a few photos I took but they just don’t do the place justice, if you would like to visit the store it is at 327 Carpenters Lane, Cape May NJ and they have an online shop for their products at I especially recommend the purchase of the SINUS HELP Inhalation Beads, they are fantastic!

My Spring Garden

So as I sit here two days away from April looking out the window at the drab gray skies I'm wondering when spring will come. I love gardening and have been waiting for a beautiful spring day to get out and play in the dirt.

But since that day has not come, I looked for a little help from my friend Megan from Eternal Etchings in Villas, NJ for some alternative spring gardening. Megan is a great artist whose main canvas is the human body. On several occasions she has drawn and tattooed custom work for me, my husband and our friends. This is a tattoo added to a grouping of flowers that start on my foot and wrap around the back of my ankle.

Hopefully this will inspire you to think of alternative ways to garden yourself even in bad weather.

So here is my spring garden compliments of Megan.

Here is the first half of the tattoo that is on my foot and starts rapping around the back of the ankle:
