A Cosmetic & Fragrance 2010 Holiday Gift Guide for the Vintage Soul

Holiday 2010 Gift Guide for Vintage inspired gals

Here’s my Holiday 2010 gift guide for the vintage soul. You know, the type of gal that knows how to pin curl and brush them out, wears red lipstick daily, and has a bit of an Old Hollywood complex.  She wishes dressing gowns would à la mode and has always wanted her own boudoir. This gal is a real glamor, vintage at heart. She may have a degree in something boring, wear off-the-rack clothing, and have to clean her own bathroom… Continue reading | 8 Comments

Bath & Body Works Twilight Woods for Men Body Wash Review

B&BW Twilight Woods for Men Body Wash Review

Haven’t had enough of Twilight yet? Bath and Body Works has launched a fragrance line Twilight Woods for men and women. I live in “Twilight Woods” so I had to give this a try. (I am not a fan of the Twilight series. I only like for my vampires to be Bela Lugosi or created by Joss Whedon). Twilight Woods for Men is a dry woodsy fragrance. I think of the fragrance as unisex.

Yves Rocher Pur Desir Captivating Lavender Shower Gel

Yves Rocher Lavender Shower Gel Review

FAB skincare products in travel friendly 1 oz and 2 oz sized bottles. This kit contains Face Cleanser, Daily Face Cream

Nivea Touch of Happiness Moisturizing Body Wash Review

Nivea Touch of Happiness

Weekly Cheap Secret:

Nivea is really pushing this stuff this summer along with the “matching” body lotion. Evidently “Happiness” is a blend of orange blossom and bamboo essence. The scent is getting rave reviews, but I’m not crazy about it. I love orange blossom. If this wash did not have orange blossom in the description and had something like “orange juice” labeled on it, then maybe I could like it. I do like the formula. So, I’ll start with that first… Continue reading | 2 Comments
