Stuff to Buy Yourself for Valentine’s 2018

Jeanette MacDonald

Each year I put together a Valentine’s Gift Guide. I usually add a disclaimer to them something like “I am throwing this together as an excuse to talk about rose-scented things and things to get me out of a winter funk”. My disclaimer is the truth. So, instead of saying this is some sort of gift guide, I’m going to be frank. This is a list of 14 ridiculous things that I wish I could buy myself in the middle of February.

Cutex Scarlet

The Lipstick League – Week of 1.15.18

Question of the Week: What is the one winter essential that you keep with you at all times?

Chanel Coco perfume

The Lipstick League – week of 1.23.17

Question of the Week: Which fragrance have you been wearing the most this winter? (If you don’t wear fragrance, tell us about the body lotion or body wash you’ve been using the most this winter.)

EauMG’s Answer: This winter has been more boring that winters of the past. Frankly, I haven’t felt like wearing perfume. I’ve been sampling new things but at night, I’ve been keeping it classic/comfortable with perfumes like Chanel
