California Road Trippin’

Greetings beauties, this post is LONG overdue.  Our family took a road trip at the end of August from Chicago to California.  At first I was extremely apprehensive about a two day road trip to the West coast. However, my husband the avid traveller convinced me that we would break it up and that I would enjoy the trip.  One part of me was still sneak checking out rates from Southwest in hopes of snagging one of those $160.00 round-trip deals but the more I thought about it, I started to look forward to seeing California in a way that I would never be able to see it if we’d flown straight in to LAX.

Credo in San Francisco was my first stop. It is a natural girl’s beauty mecca. If you like Sephora, you’ll love this store!


I’m always looking for new inspiration for Asili Body Products and new products and experiences that I can share with you.  Oftentimes, I don’t have enough time to play around with recipes and fragrances to come up with new products to offer you.  With ample time on my hand, I decided that I would use this road trip and the things that I experienced from nature along the way to inspire a new series of fragrances to share with you.  I truly hope you will enjoy a small peek at our family’s best summer vacation ever!


New Fragrances

I have hand-picked four new fragrances that came from the inspiration I gained during the road trip.  The first fragrance is Pink Jasmine.  Although I did not see any Jasmine while I was there, this writer has this to say about the Jasmine in San Francisco.

“I will never get over the way jasmine grows like a weed here–the way I can be walking down an unremarkable street and step into a narcotic cloud of scent drifting half a block down from a vacant lot. I love it in all its forms, but my favorite is the pale pink variety with its ripe banana heart and bitter chocolate undertones. I could get drunk on it.”
