Question of the Week: What fall beauty product are you looking forward to the most?

EauMG’s Answer: Oh, good question. I’ve been planning my fall/winter capsule wardrobe and making a list of things I need to buy or replace. I’m basically duping the Dior A/W 2017 looks.

This week I’m revisiting popular perfumes available at US drugstores. The sort of perfumes that many of us know but many of us perfume lovers completely ignore. 

There’s a critical window in childhood where things imprint on you, especially pop culture. This window of time one’s first exposure to what is cool or not. You’ll find yourself for years aspiring to be that. Then the world will cruelly remind you that that is no longer cool. As an adult, you look back and either laugh about… Continue reading | 7 Comments
