1. This sounds like a weird question, but what is your favorite smell / scent? It could be a perfume, an outdoor smell, a favorite lotion, basically whatever. I still love the Bath & Body Works Coconut Lime Verbena scent (and their retired Exotic Coconut scent). I also love the smell of fresh cut grass, carnival food and that amazing new car scent.

2. What did you have for breakfast today? Totally random, but I love hearing about that kind of stuff! I had a Chocolate Peanut Butter Zone Perfect Bar.  Not real exciting (or a great breakfast choice), but they do the trick in a pinch and they are really good.

Looking forward to hearing everyone’s answers!

Spread the love

    1. Jennifer

      I did but I have been so busy I haven’t had time to do anything with it.

  2. Kelly Vandiver

    I feel best with an egg or yogurt but today I had a Starbucks latte and cheese danish.

    I love anything coconut too.

    I am addicted to the smell of bergamot. I love bbw bergamot waters candle, it smells amazing! Really I love citrus smells, but bergamot is the best.

    So far all I have had is coffee but I will probably have some toast;)

    1. Jen

      Have you tried the Atelier Cologne line? I believe all of their scents have an orange base, and I think at least a few of them have bergamot.

    There are these cute little candles that they sell in boutiques that I can’t remember the brand that smell delicious. Cinnamon bun is my favorite! I could literally sniff it all day.

    My favorite things to eat are “power balls.” I make them with peanut butter, pure oatmeal, toasted coconut, flax seeds, a little coconut oil, and a few dark chocolate chips and they are so good and two of them fill me up for the entire morning!

      Amber – These sound delicious and healthy. I would love your recipe.

      1. Amber

        Here you go, Kim! I hope you enjoy them.

        Oatmeal power balls
        1 cup dry oatmeal
        1 cup toasted coconut flakes (coconut toasts quickly, only takes a few minutes on broil)
        1/2 cup chocolate chips?
        1/2 cup ground flaxseed
        1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter/or creamy peanut butter?
        1/3 cup honey
        1 teaspoon vanilla
        Dried cranberries or raisins optional?(I don’t do this)
        Sometimes I add about 2 tablespoons of Chia seeds

        I use a cookie dough scooper to scoop them out into little balls and it makes things a lot easier 🙂

        1. Jennifer

          I want to try these too!!!

    For manufactured scent, I really love lemon verbena.

    For real scents, fresh cut grass, and even more.. the BEACH. That smell when you get close, just. Mmmmm. My husband may or may not have caught me huffing a bottle of beach sand last night…

    And I had sweet and sour chicken for breakfast 😛

  6. Zelene

    I love love the smell of cotton candy ice cream 😀 and the smell of grass after raining (well the mix with dirt and trees I think)
    I usually have a yogurt in the morning, this week it could be pineapple-coconut or coffee 😀 (today was pineapple/coconut) and zone bar if I am extra hungry }=D

  7. christine

    Egg salad on a pice of toast.

  8. suzy

    Cut grass, lemon, cucumber, and honeysuckle-love all those smells. Oh, and how it smells outside after it rains.
    And I’m sure it will never be a perfume or a candle, but the sweetest smell in the world is puppy breath. Makes me forget all the bad in the world. 🙂
    As for breakfast, I have never been one to eat much in the morning. I stop at Sonic and get a big unsweet tea and that’s about all I want until lunch.

    I love pine or woodsy scents, cinnamon, sweet pea, and anything clean… My favorite candle scent is called “anticipation” by Morenci Candles… it’s a go too when I don’t know what else to buy for people. Everyone loves it! <– I don't sale those, just HIGHLY recommend them, all of their candles are amazing! 🙂

    Mint chocolate Advocare shake… I talked about it on my snapchat and how many ridiculous carbs are in their shakes. They REALLY need to formulate a low carb version!

      *sell, not sale…

    (1) Benzaldehyde. It is the primary component of cherry and almond flavors/scents. I actually open bottles of almond extract just to sniff it…

    (2) Early I had a smoothie with fruit, PB2, cacao powder, protein powder, matcha, moringa powder, and almond milk. Just now I had a KIND bar (caramel almond and sea salt flavor).

  11. Desiree

    I love new car scent, lavender, snuggle fabric softener pods! (Lol!)

    Fiber One chocolate chip granola bar. I love them!

  12. Valerie

    My favourite scent is rain on wood/earth. I love it.

  13. Sarah

    I love the smell of irish spring green soap…like LOVE it.

    For breakfast I had a chewy granola nut bar and a banana…on the go!

  14. Sara

    I have lots of favorite scents, my favorite weird one, is the smell of carbon paper. You know like from the old receipts back in the 80s/90s, where they put the paper on the machine and then your card and then swiped over it, so it imprinted on the paper. I was always smelling those things as a child, probably why I love shopping so much now haha. My favorite perfume ever was Karmala from Avon, it smelled like incense, I got sooo many compliments on it and they discontinued it 🙁 I also love men’s cologne, I bought my bf Black by Kenneth Cole, but I keep it at my house, just so I can huff it whenever I want lol. And a leather jacket mixed with Big Red chewing gum lol, my sister had a leather jacket when she was in hs school and always kept Big Red in the pocket, her jacket always smelled so good.

    What I had for breakfast this morning, chocolate poptarts and a giant glass of milk. Lol I know not healthy at all, but it was delicious.

    I love the smell of ginger- either baked gingerbread type smells or fresh ginger. We cook a lot with fresh ginger and I loooooove the way the house smells after. I’m so happy they brought back the white tea & ginger scent at B&BW!

    I had a late breakfast this morning so it was kinda big. An english muffin split with a couple slices of thin turkey breast on top, half a slice of cheddar and a poached egg on each. Basically covered it in Tapatio. SO GOOD.

    I love Madame Scodioli Dust Shaker shave soap, but they don’t make it any longer. It was a little manly smelling but made me feel so relaxed. The smell filled up the whole shower!

    I made chia pudding last night to have for breakfast the next few days. First time making it, and it was okay but want to try with coconut milk instead of almond milk.

  17. JellyBean

    I love all citrus scents, coconut, the lilac bushes that grow down my alley…and my cat. I’m not sure why, but I just bury my face in his belly and he smells like pure comfort.

    For breakfast today, I had two pieces of cinnamon raisin bread and a peach mango smoothie. I get up at 3:30 am to be at work at 5. Whatever I eat needs to be portable because I am not about to get up any earlier to sit down with something. Yesterday I had a granola bar and a Monster…it was that kind of morning. ?

    1. Jennifer

      It happens! 3:30am is early!

    Lavender and fresh cotton candles from Walmart.
