EauMG’s 2013 Holiday Gift Guide for Vintage Beauties

Louise Brooks

This Holiday Gift Guide for Vintage Beauties is for the glamorous types that would be happy to have seamed stockings in their stocking. This is one of my favorite gift guides to create as I’d rather be living in a Jean Harlow style boudoir wearing a floor length dressing gown and applying my lashes than doing whatever it is that I do all day. This is a gift guide for those on your list that are inspired by perfectly placed beauty marks, shiny martini shakers and the elegance… Continue reading | 7 Comments

Royal Apothic Holland Park EDP Perfume Review

Royal Apothic Holland Park

I have seen the Royal Apothic line around and in the past I’ve bought a few of their hand creams. I never really tried the perfumes because Anthropologie never had testers out of the ones I wanted to try. I didn’t go out of my way to try them because at their price point and with the adorable vintage inspired packaging, I thought the line was only about the looks and not what was inside. Guess what?

Holland Park is inspired by… Continue reading | 5 Comments

Votivo Floure Candle – Bright Leaf Tobacco Review

Votivo Bright Leaf Tobacco

Votivo Floure Candles as a line of candles in these gorgeous vessels inspired by the fringe on flappers’ dresses. This collection features Votivo’s most popular fragrances.

Virginia Grey santa

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).

Seattle Vintage Sniff 2012 Recap by EauMG

It always seems to shock people when I tell them that I’m not into vintage perfume. I’ve heard gasps before! They assume since I’ve always been into vintage style that I must love everything vintage. There are many reasons why I’m not a vintage perfume person. It’s not that I don’t appreciate or love them, it’s that I’m a perfume lover, not a collector. I don’t have the patience or money for vintages. You vintage collectors would crush me like a little twig. I can’t last a day in your on-line bidding world.
