Once in a while, it’s worth it to align yourself with Tom Haverford and Donna Meagle’s motto and “Treat yo self.” I did just that yesterday morning at my favorite Durham store Parker and Otis– affectionately referred to by the college set as ‘Potis.’ Parker and Otis, which I will profile in greater detail in the future, is THE place to grab Saturday morning brunch, as well as shop around for home goods and stationery. Essentially, it’s my heaven on earth.
While browsing with a friend from out of town, I was entranced by the wall of new, rebranded elizabethW room diffusers. My freshman year roommate Syd has a love affair with room diffusers, and I wanted to bring back some fragrance to my apartment. (If Sydney reads this, she is going to mock me for that sentence. Love affair is probably inaccurate, but it sounds so lifestyle-y that I can’t help myself. We’re keeping it in.)
elizabethW has launched a new collection of ‘small batch apothecary’ goods, with a whole range of great scents. Selling perfume, hand cream, body lotion, soap and a diffuser per scent, you can really make your musk consistent these days! I tested out a bunch, because I know that my roommate Meg and I like heady, sweet, floral scents, before I settled on Tuberose. Of course, to each their own, and the selection is really extensive in terms of offerings: Dandelion, Flower Market, Pompom Patchouli, Lime, Orange Flower, Lilac and Leaves.
At this moment, I am seriously enjoying my Tuberose diffuser, and will be surely stocking up on more come Christmas time. Great housewarming gifts! Here’s how it’s described on the site: “A lasting floral, a compelling, classic bouquet. Accented by gardenia, jasmine, warm amber, and orange flower.” I was also a huge fan of orange flower. Go figure!
