10 Spring Fragrances To Love

Who's excited about the forthcoming Spring season and all that it brings? Spring feels like such a great time to move forward, blossom, renew and rejuvenate. One way I love to renew and rejuvenate is by changing the scents I wear in the Fall and Winter season's to something lighter, more floral and a bit sexier for Spring. And I always love a scent that feels fresh and romantic.

I've fallen for Tulip Perfume's Neroli Wood, The Natural Intellect. It's a very gentle scent that embodies a woodsy, earthy pine and cedar scent and I love the warmth of the amber and cashmere musk. The scent feels perfect for the colder months, but I have a feeling I will reach for it even throughout Spring and Summer. Its gentleness and lightness works perfect for my day job. It's not too overpowering and is just enough to give you an earthy, fresh, romantic and light scent of a woman.

Although I will reach for my Neroli Wood often, I'm excited to add an additional perfume or two to blossom into Spring. I've shared the perfumes I'm excited to try via pictures below. I look forward to trying Victoria's Secret Bombshell. I'm hoping I love the scent as much as I love their super cute emerald cut bottle and slogan that shares sexy today, sexy tomorrow, sexy forever. 😍

A big fan of earthy notes and scents that share a touch of a bohemian feel, at the top of my list to try is Marc Jacob's Daisy Kiss. The bass notes carries a cedarwood {love}and musk with middle notes of pink rose and white peony, two floral scents that I simply adore.

The first day of Spring is coming {big smile} this Monday. Here's to springing forward toward all of the things you desire and love wearing a lovely scent to tote.

Cover Songs? Help

Well you guys, it's that time. 😇 Time to get out there and do my first open mic night. The goal is to do for my first one in March with one original song and one cover song practiced and ready to share. Thank you so much for helping me last year with choosing the songs to put on my first EP. The one everyone liked the most was Pieces of Me so that will definitely be the original song I do for open mic night. I will more than likely do Pieces of Me once, waiting until the Fall and the EP to perform it more.

I would love if you could also help me choose a cover song to do. I've listed below some covers that I've done on social media, mainly just little snippets. I'm going to start practicing Pieces of Me and the cover song you guys like the most starting March 1 I'm sure I'll safe my nerves until the very end of the month before I do the first open mic night. Plus, you know, it'll give me more time to practice, wink, wink. 🙂

So here they are below. Feel free to share via Facebook, Instagram or here the cover song you like best. Thank you all so much.

PARISH Atlanta Eat, Love, More Please

On a rainy Sunday afternoon I took a drive to downtown Atlanta to finally enjoy the Beltline and to have something good to eat. There was a toss up between Parish and another lovely restaurant that whose online menu looked super tasty also, however Parish won me over. I walked the Beltline, enjoyed the art, Sunday afternoon breeze and even caught one artist creating. This type of thing is like the cherry on top for me. Shortly after passing the artist there she was. A cute brick building that put me in the mind of buildings I had passed in Harlem. Walking into Parish felt very trendy with old world charm to me. The front of the house reminded me of a New York feel and once seated, I looked around and shared with my friend that the shutters and decor reminded me of New Orelans. It was all so charming and super cool.
 Now to the food. Oh my God, can you fall in love with food? Thinking about it, every, single bite had my taste buds dancing and me singing. I'm ready for a trip back down to Atlanta to try the Fried Chicken Benedict all over again. My eyes lit up with the first bite. The Fried Chicken Benedict had the most delicious biscuit which set at the bottom of the juiciest, most flavorful  and crispy chicken breast, topped with a poached egg and sausage gravy. It was just the perfect blend of yumminess. And for my side I chose the potatoes which for me were perfect. I love crispy potatoes that are soft as if they were baked first. They were a perfect side and also seasoned well, very well. To top off this perfect blend of Sunday afternoon brunch I added a mimosa which again was another perfect blend, this time of champagne to orange juice. You know sometimes you get more oj. 🙂 I wish there was room for the Sweet Potato Cinnamon Roll that guests next to me shared was a must have. When it comes to food and travel any reason will do to enjoy more. I'm definitely looking forward to returning to Parish soon. Next time I'm going to start with the cinnamon roll and some coffee then move to a mimosa and debate with myself and taste buds as to rather I should go for another round of the Fried Chicken Benedict or try something new. I'm so looking forward to it. YUM, more please.

Happy New Year Gifts

Hello everyone. I hope your New Year is getting off to a great start. I'm super excited to share this first post of 2017 with you as it includes some Happy New Year gifts for you.🙂

I'm currently in Georgia doing a little music making, creating and enjoying a spiritual check up. I would love for you to follow me on Instagram and Facebook where I will share pieces of this journey.

This first blog post of 2017 is kind of short, but I wanted to make sure I shared with you the tools that I am finding very useful for both the business planning and personal aspects of this week's journey. 

I find what Daria Rowe of Astrology for Career Women so helpful. I've been following Daria for about a year now and started a journal dedicated solely to what she shares about astrology and the moon phases. I'm currently working with this in relation to my career and personal journey and will continue to use Daria's services throughout the year.

I'm on day two of finding my word for 2017 as shared by Susannah Conway. I also like working with parts of Susannah Conway's Unravel Your Year work book. I came to know about Conway's Unravel Your Year work book back in 2013 and have enjoyed using it since.

I also enjoy using this great Love Letter To Self from Self Magazine. I'm going to use it at the end of this week's journey (Thursday, January 19 - Wednesday, January 25). I have used it from time to time since 2011 and will more than likely use it during quarterly tune ups in which I will repeat this week's process once per quarter.

Lastly I enjoy visiting these awesome pages for insight and some additional tools.

Cheers to a Happy New Year filled with lots and lots of love and here's to us having the strength and courage to reach all of our goals and heart's desires.

Thank You - 2016 In Review
Oh my gosh, ya'll, what an exciting, scary, loving, spectacular year 2016 has been. I am so thankful for all of the opportunities that I had this year. And I am SO, SO thankful for each and every one of you for your love and support. You guys have helped to give me wings to fly, especially in the area of my aspirations of becoming a full fledged, working singer and songwriter. Honestly, the first two years of the blog has been basically learning about the blog world, testing the waters and focusing more on the Music, Fashion, Food, People and Places that inspire me. I've dipped my big toe as it relates to sharing my own music and in 2017 it's past time to dive on in. 😊 O.k. wait a minute, the emoji freak that I am is too excited that I was just able to place that cute little smiley face into this post, LOL.

I'm thinking I should definitely share more music, especially as I work toward completing my first ever EP. I would however love for you to share with me what you would like to see more of in 2017 here on The Love Channel with Ty Swint. For example would you like me to share more of my music writing process? Would you like me to share behind the scenes footage of me in the studio. Would you like me to share what I wear as I'm out and about attending music workshops, conferences or just about getting things together for the EP? What ever ideas come to mind, please feel free to share. And from the bottom of my heart, thank you again for all of your love and support. I greatly appreciate you so much.

Cheers to a great 2016 and Here's to 2017. I look forward to watching us all grow in love for self, for what we do and for each other.
