Juicy Couture Malibu

During last week's polar vortex, an image of paradise popped up on my Instagram. Shimmering blue waves under a cloudless sky that seemed to go on forever with a quiet, sandy beach. An NYC friend had escaped to Malibu and was taunting those of us bundled up to our eyebrows with her sunny and warm getaway. While the temperatures have thankfully warmed up, I still can't get that vision out of my mind. Since I'm landlocked here for a while, I'm doing the next best thing and spraying myself heavily with Juicy Couture Malibu ($72). The scent isn't the beachy one you would expect, but instead it's a bright floral with notes of jasmine and passion fruit. And the bottle is brightening up my view of the gray sky outside, too.
