EauMG’s Holiday 2012 Gift Guide for Vintage Beauties

Virginia Grey santa

It’s that time of the year again! EauMG Gift Guide time! Here’s my gift ideas for vintage loving gals and for those that crave a little more Old Hollywood glamour in their lives. This guide is for those that it was socially acceptable to walk around in floor length silk dressing gowns and really do use the “I’m washing my hair tonight” excuse (setting hair is serious business). If you know a lady that swoons over “authentic” reproduction nylons and crushes on Cary Grant, check out… Continue reading | 15 Comments

EauMG’s 2011 Holiday Gift Guide for Vintage Beauties

Vilma Banky

Hello. I’m Victoria. I use foam rollers. I wear false eyelashes and red lipstick. I’d never buy a store bought pie or pre-made pie dough. I have mastered the art of trellised top pies.

Opus Oils Starlet Perfume Review

Opus Oils Starlet perfume review

Starlet is a spicy, orange blossom and rose long-wearing perfume in the Opus Oils Burlesque Collection. When I wear Starlet, I feel like an Old Hollywood starlet. Well, I feel that way every day, but you get what I’m saying 🙂 . This juice has a classic vibe.

Starlet is beautiful. It opens with green roses and tangy orange blossom water. It’s really a starlet. It’s glamorous in a classic way. With a little more time, the roses become powdery, more feminine. Orange… Continue reading | 10 Comments
