Lets Talk Weddings & Lotions.

Ahhhh, Jamaica.
The place where all of my dreams came true.
You do know what they are known for don't you?
Yes, marijuana. You would be right.
While I hear that does make some peoples dreams come true, that was not was I referring to.

As you may or may not know, Jamaica is where Shawn and I tied the knot.
You know what, that is a complete lie--we did not tie any knots while in Jamaica.
We did however say our vows and have the most awkward embarrassing wedding video to ever be produced while we did it {I meant while we said our vows, not did "it"..just clarifying that one}.
Remind me to never show you our wedding video.

I was 20 years old and 10 pounds lighter.
He was 22 and still afraid to touch his eyeballs, hence the glasses.
Regardless of our ages, weight, and fear of eyeballs, the day was magical.

I will always remember the moment I saw Shawn for the first time waiting for me on the beach with the ocean behind him saying out loud "This is the most amazing thing ever..."
Word to the not yet marrieds---Go to Jamaica for your wedding.
You will not be sorry.

The day went like this: Woke up, got ready, married by 10 am, cake and champagne following, couples massage soon after that, nap immediately following, and then dinner with the whole gang who came to Jamaica with us to cap off the evening.
Stress free is the way to be gang.
Remember that.

I am going somewhere with this, sometimes it just takes me a while to get there. My apologies.
The other thing about Jamaica I will always remember {and that will bring me back again...} is the scent.
I know that sounds weird but hear me out.
They had the most amazing lotion that was made up of lemongrass and some other addictive additive.
Probably marijuana, you are right.
Regardless, it was to die for.
I have been longing for that scent to enter my life again. Literally longing.
And then...I saw this.
Are you kidding me?
Coconut AND Lemongrass?
I was sold.

Every morning now as I apply this stuff, I am transcended back to that sunny, sandy, paradise.
But it gets better.
Not only did I find this scent in body lotion and hand cream, I found it in these two products.

That would be washer whiffs and dryer disks my friends.
Now not only my body smells like deliciousness, my clothes do as well.

Even my husband has noticed and that is saying a lot.
It is amazing how our towels went from smelling like wet dog to paradise in no time flat.
Here is the deal--I don't care if you have ever been to Jamaica or not. You need this.
Your body/closet will never smell better.

And lucky for you, I can tell you where to get it.
Right here.
Yes right there.

  15. Just recently found/follow your blog!

    (I also laughed that lemongrass reminds you of Jamaica, because for our honeymoon, my husband and I went to Negril, and in our room was a nice little package with lemongrass lotion in it... I still have it! It smells awesome!

  16. I bought a few Scentsy warmers and scent bricks last fall, and LOVE them.

    I didn't know they made the body and laundry products!! Is it weird that this made me so excited?

    I would love to try the Washer Whiffs. I've been using homemade laundry soap from my mom, which is awesome, but she makes it unscented. Those would be perfect!

  22. First off- totally wish I'd done a beach wedding. I loved ours of course, but I could deal with a much smaller, oceanside one in my next life ;)

    We brought back as MANY of the lotion bottles from our Mexican resort as we could. They smell like heaven. I'm wondering if they are similar to your fave scent?!?! We are almost out of the final bottle-- it will be a sad day!!

  40. Your wedding was beautiful!! I agree that stress-free is the way to be (that's NOT the way I did it and if I could, I'd totally go back and change it)! I cracked up about your husband's eyeball phobia...my husband is 30 and STILL won't get contacts! Psh.

I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thanks for stopping by my space and sharing a piece of yourself on this huge ole internet. I meant that in the least creepy way possible. I'm just good at making everything awkward. Anyhow, thank you for your comments. They make me smile :)
