12 New Fragrances to Explore This Summer

I am a fragrance junkie. While I don't consider myself any kind of expert in deciphering notes and breaking down a scent, I thoroughly enjoy experiencing new scents, exploring new notes, and testing my boundaries. I find the ritual of trying a new scent for the first time, and experiencing it's evolution on my skin, intoxicating. At the same time I find the sensation of knowing I detect a note that is familiar, yet not being able to pinpoint it, very frustrating. But the more years that pass in my fragrance adventure the better I

Top 10 Red Lipsticks | Beauty Blogger Top Ten Tuesday

This week the Beauty Blogger Top Ten Tuesday team is sharing Top 10 Reds. I opted to go for Top Ten Red Lipsticks. I love a gorgeous red. Unfortunately I lack the confidence to wear one out of the house. I just feel like I have a spotlight on my lips saying "Hey you! Look at me!". Plus I find my mouth area in general not one I want to draw attention to. I wish I had the nerve because there is just something about a stunning red against fair skin and blue eyes that looks breathtaking. Just not on me! In no particular

Giorgio Armani Beauty Holiday 2014 Orient Excess Collection | Info and Images

The Giorgio Armani Beauty Holiday 2014 Orient Excess Collection is all about contrast and purity, Armani sophistication. To celebrate the end of the year, the Orient Excess collection invites you on an exotic journey to the snowy steppes of the Far North. These immaculate plains, covered in frost and stretching as far as the eye can see, inspired Giorgio Armani Beauty to create a polar atmosphere through pure and intense make-up.

Giorgio Armani Fall 2014 Fade to Grey Collection NOTD – Giorgio Armani Nail Lacquer 214 Woodstone

The Giorgio Armani Fall 2014 Fade to Grey Collection ($20 US/$32 CAD) includes 4 new nail lacquers in shades of brown, plum, grey and bronze. They have a texture that is between silk and velvet. A finish that is between matte and satin. The unique texture is thanks to a formula that combines two resins and a polymer. They go on as a liquid gel and then becomes solid drying quickly. You can pretty much get away with one coat but I like two to help even out my nails which are a tad destroyed at the moment. I didn't think a brown
