1950's spring pin-up pic of Ann Miller

March 13th-20th

Happy Nowruz! Finally, spring is here. The weather doesn’t really feel it but plants are budding and the plum trees are in bloom. I do feel optimistic. And I even have plants growing from seed inside. However, I am not as glam as Ann Miller in the pic above 😉

Here’s what happened in the wonderful world of fragrance and beauty this week. Lots of green because of St. Patrick’s Day and there’s lots of optimism too. Spring is in the air…what’s your favorite spring perfume?

Fragrance:

Eyeliner On A Cat reviews the new gourmand by Serge Lutens. I’m not so excited to try it now 🙁

Lucy at Indie Perfumes reviews aroma M Geisha Violet and Geisha Rouge. Makes me want to bust out my sample of Geisha Violet!

Olfactoria asks at Perfume-Smellin’ Things if what we (perfumistas) have is an addiction or love affair. Care to chime in?

Scent of the Day reviews the first perfume that I ever owned. If I only I could get my hands on a vintage!

Yesterday’s Perfume compiles a wonderful “collage” of green scents. So many of my favorite classics are on that list.

Beauty:

Didn’t have a rainbow this St.Patrick’s Day? Go over to Aquaheart’s Obsessions to see Inglot’s spectrum of rainbow colored eyeshadows.

OK, so it isn’t exactly “beauty” but please go over and check out the cuteness that is Marlowe the French Bulldog on Beautyburg. And there’s some good reviews too 🙂

G at Nouveau Cheap shows us so many new drugstore nail polishes this week. I’m really liking a few from Wet n Wild and from Sinful Colors. There’s lots of chartreuse!

Estee Lauder has really stepped up their color products’ game. Check out this beautiful nail lacquer at The Beauty Alchemist.

Gaia at The Non-Blonde may have convinced me to purchase a decadent foundation that I’ve been trying to talk myself out of for a month now…
