VANILL-IZING

happy week everyone!
this one is going to start rather gourmet and sweet smelling.
you all know by now, but for the visitors who don't, i love baking.
now, although i'm a good girl and always follow a recipe,
there are some things i dare change, and one of  them is adding vanilla beans in the place of vanilla extract.
since i was baking cookies last friday afternoon,
i thought why not share some facts about one of my very favorite spices.
vanilla comes from:
and as far as trivia goes...
i also love these:

this  body shop body spray, and these philosophy vanilla beauty products,
korres vanilla gels and creams are lovely,
and a scented candle for the romantics.

you might also like to try making your own body spray at home with this recipe,
i tried it and it smells fantastic, feels great and lasts for a while, sorry body shop :)
as far as the aphrodisiac aspect goes, i have only lately started using vanilla products again,
so i'll take the psychology books words for it. however,
if i do happen to become a man - magnet soon, i'll be sure to let you know!

xoxo lovelies!
