Contrary to the Muse’s utmost belief that Strawberry Fields was a legendary journey through Lennon’s head when he was dropping a tab, in actuality it’s a real place that he was talking about. Dontcha just want to believe that half his songs are all about a psychedelic acid trip? John Lennon is like the poster boy for good acid trips a la the un-paranoid journey.
But seriously…Strawberry Fields was the name of a Children’s Home next to John’s childhood home in Woolton. He actually played around the area and in a garden behind the actual home which was indeed named Strawberry Fields.
Dontcha love it? You get a review and FUN facts bout John Lennon. How cool am I?
I won’t bug you further with the details of Strawberry Fields (I know all sorts of fun trivia about the Beatles) but speaking on the topic of strawberries and fields and such is my lead in for Fresh Strawberry Flowers Perfume. Loving all over it lately after purchasing it during Sephora Friends and Family.

It’s so very early to worry about the gift giving season isn’t it? But I really want to get a jump start on Gift Giving Guides this year and one particular guide that REALLY needs an extra early preview is my Unique Guide to Gift Giving via Etailers.
I love Etailers ummm wait scratch that….I’m addicted to Etailers. What are Etailers? Etailers are basically smaller shops or homegrowns as I refer to them. It’s normally run by a single person sometimes two and products are handmade in most cases from scratch. These products include bath and body goodies, perfumes, perfume oils, and in some cases even cosmetics. I love purchasing gifts from Etailers because it makes the gift giving experience really unique and special because seriously some of these items just can’t be purchased in any store or shop you’d find at the mall.
I’m also starting this guide a little earlier because many of these shops are popular and they sometimes have a lead shipping time which takes anywhere from 2 to 4 weeks (or more) to get your items since they are being freshly made. I’ve personally shopped from these stores myself however I can’t vouch for their shipping time so please if you’re gifting someone do take the shipping time into consideration prior to ordering. Again, this is why this particular gift guide is going up early.
In other news…
I’ll be doing other gift guides over the next month and into December. Hopefully you’ll find each of these guides a helpful way to discover some great presents for friends and family. If you have an idea for a particular guide I’d love to hear it, do comment and share.

Although I’m generally a foody, fruity, sweet type of girl when it comes to fragrances one floral note that gets me each and every time would be roses.
