Hi Everyone! I am a guest blogger participating in Domestically Challenged’s Blogspot Spring Fling Event You can check out her blog here

So back to the title of this post. What I can not live without…


…body mist. It is so very wonderful AND it has so many personalities’ uses too!

I have a story! So let’s flash back to the sixth grade – that would have been 19XX, ahhhh you didn’t think I has actually going to tell you did you??? There was a girl, we will call her Karen for this exercise, that always smelled ‘flowery’ and all the boys LOVED Karen! I have to admit she smelled good…for competition that is. Now I was a bit of a tomboy so smell had never really mattered to me until THAT year. So began my many years of searching for a smell that worked for me…I tried soap, shampoo, hairspray, perfume, lotion, you name it- I tried it! This one was too heavy, that one to musky, THIS one you could smell from across the room…oh the frustration. It wasn’t until the late 90’s that I discovered body mist. It was perfect, it was light, and I loved it.

So I have a love for things that smell good, but are light.

Now back to the many personalities’ uses of body spray. I use it for lots of things, not just my body. Let’s see- I spray my clothes to freshen them up, any room in the house OR furniture for that matter that needs a lift, great for hot days in the sun for a quick spritz to cool you off, and finally- ummm it’s great for those shoes that I refuse to wear sock with…My mom is shaking her head right now…

Now I have tried all brands, but my favorite right now is the New DOVE mists. Good news is they are inexpensive at a whopping $3.89 at target. I dare you to try them- what do you have to lose??? It’s not like shelling out a crisp Benjamin for a perfume you may end-up disliking after 2-3 weeks. Soooo-go for it!

I will have to give this a try. I don't care for heavy perfumes, and I do like the light mists. I've just not tried this brand. It'll be on my shopping list this week.

Ahhh, I have quite a few Body Mists too. They are great.

Happy Spring Flingin'!

If I could handle scents, I would so use body spray. However, we are a "scent free" household pretty much!
It's been so much fun "meeting" everyone today!
Happy Spring Flinging!

Great post! I also love body mist! One because I am to cheap to buy the other perfume and it can be used for so many things! Great spring fling!

Erin-very cute blog. I love that you also do a thankful Thursday. I hope you have a blessed weekend.

I've actually been hooked on walmart's brand. I think it's walmart's brand anyway. I'm not sure now. But I LOVE coconut lime!

I like body moists especially for srping and summer. They are just so light and subtle! I will have to go take a sniff at the Dove ones!

Mary @ Giving Up On Perfect said...

Hi, Cass! I love Dove sprays, too! My favorite is the green one - I think it's cucumber and something?

I'm reaaallly curious on who this 'Karen' is....I know it wasn't me 'cause I never smell good, but it makes me wonder why I don't remember anyone with the 'captivating' smell....and I never knew that you were 'obssessed' with smell at that time, it's kinda funny:)
