EauMG’s 2018 Holiday Gift Guide for Niblings & Teens

Auntie Mame gift guide

Hug your Auntie! My holiday gift guides are back! 

And just like last year, I apologize for their last minute arrival. It has been such a busy month. Gift guides and blogging have not been a priority.  Working and life and actually finding the time to buy gifts for niblings…that’s what has been the priority.

Bvlgari Splendida Magnolia Sensuel

Mainstream Monday – Sniffing a Popular Perfume

When it comes to designer perfumes, Bvlgari is one of my personal favorite and “most worn” brands. They are typically what I wear when I want to smell good but not think about what I’m wearing.
