The Lipstick League – Week of 3.30.15
Question of the Week: What’s the last beauty product that really “wowed” you?

Mainstream Monday – Sniffing a Popular Perfume
Eden has always reminded me of a “space garden”¹, this is a garden housed in some bubble on some planet we’ve never heard of. It’s a sci-fi fruity floral; a synthetic replication of paradise.
