NIVEA Touch of Frangipani escape


we've moved - and we're still moving. having made the trek from Colorado to Washington we have stayed with Tman's parents, my parents, hotels and beach houses. still working on our house hunt our final move is yet to come. for those of you who move often you know the challenges of living out of a suitcase, temporarily surviving off of the bare minimum of clothing, cosmetics and everything in between.

the question is how to create your own escape within the walls of your own home (or temporary residence). one thing that really roots me is consistently using the same products on the road as i would in my own home. the same pillows, the same soap, the same shampoo...you get the idea.

NIVEA invited me to join the Escape challenge in creating my own escape at home while using the new Touch of Frangipani body wash. i immediately headed to Pinterest for inspiration (natch) and searched for ideas on how to create my own escape. after drooling over household after household i noticed one commonality in all of these dream bathrooms, they each came decorated with their coordinating orchid of choice.


i decided to put my 1-800-Flowers gift card to use by purchasing my own orchid plant to place in my new home (whenever or wherever that is).

along with that i have been using my Touch of Frangipani NIVEA body wash to give me a 'scented escape' while showering. it is a hydrating shower gel with an enchanting tropical scent and moisturizing sunflower oil pearls. i love the way this product smells, feels and leaves my skin so hydrated. did i mention it is extremely dry here?!

i've been using the Touch of Frangipani for a few weeks now and will gladly keep this soap in my home bathroom as well as in a travel container for the road as a small reminder of my own personal home escape.
