MAC Shadescents Collections

Scent and lips create irresistible chemistry with M·A·C Shadescents, six new perfumes inspired by our most iconic Lipstick shades. Lady Danger thrills with notes of wild cherry and Ruby Woo goes bold with whiffs of deep red leather. Notes of saffron, incense smoke, and cordovan leather surprise and intoxicate in Heroine. Candy Yum-Yum conjures tropical fruit and cotton candy and Velvet Teddy calls forth wild honey and creamy musk. Crème d’Nude evokes the vibrant sexiness of naked skin.

Serge Lutens Un bois vanille Eau De Parfum FAIL

No, I did not use up an entire thing of Serge Lutens Perfume. As a matter of fact, aside from the one time I spritzed it on my wrist after tearing off the packaging (so I could blog about the perfume in time for Valentine’s Day but totally missed the deadline) and then again two spritzes on my neck the day of (bumping it up to THREE spritzes in total), I’ve barely used the thing! The other day, I tossed it carefully placed it in my New Look Black Backpack after spritzing it behind each ear, before heading out to go have dinner with my younger cousin who happens to appreciate a good vanilla fragrance (my handiwork of course). He was going through the final stages of the flu (I insisted he turn right around and drop me back home as soon as I found out, lest I catch it but he totally ignored me) and so, couldn’t even smell the perfume anyway. Regardless, I stuck my hand in my backpack to get the perfume out – on the off-chance that he might be able to smell it – when I noticed wetness (like, a lot it). It took a moment for it to register but the entire contents of the perfume bottle (KD 31/000 down the drain, just like that) had spilled all over the insides of my backpack! -_-

What I Got From My Sister-In-Law

My older brother got married last year during Spring and took his wife to the United States for a year. When they got back, she surprised me with chocolate truffles, a baby pink faux fur vest, and a Sephora Tote Bag (as shown). In the Sephora Tote was a matching Sephora Gift Box and in the Sephora Gift Box there was…

Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Haulage

TOP
Invigorating Sicilian cedar melds with the crisp vibrancy of apple and the guileless charm of the bluebell, to evoke the essence of a South Italian summer.
HEART
The freshness of bamboo nestles amid a glorious feminine bouquet of decadent jasmine and delicate white rose.
BASE
Redolent citron wood is entwined with voluptuous amber and a suggestive caress of musk.

Summer just isn’t summer without my beloved Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue! I’d run out of Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Eau de Toilette (reviewed here) so I picked up a new one, at Harvey Nichols. As a gift with purchase (gwp) I was also given a rather large Messenger Bag that had 007 embossed on it and a deluxe sample of Hugo Boss Red Shower Gel (pretty sure it’s for men but that’s ok because as long as they’re either woods-y or oceanic, I tend to enjoy certain masculine scents). The Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Body Scrub Gel was purchased at Mishref Fair Grounds during the Perfume & Makeup Exhibition.

Boots Gourmand Haulage

I hadn’t planned on purchasing anything from Boots (Jabriya) but it was right across the street from my salon and I figured what the hey. I stepped in for a quick peek and as you can see, snagged the cutest little products! By now, you’ll know that I’m quite fond of themes, so once I picked up the Pretty Patisserie Body Butter Trio (which I’d been eyeing initially), I grabbed a few other vanilla-scented products to fit in with the theme… in my head (lawl).

Victoria’s Secret Buy Two Get One Free (Fragrance)

I was at the Avenues Phase III (for the release of H&M x The Weeknd Collection) when I decided to check out the Bath and Body Works branch over there, as well. To get to B&BW, I usually have to cut through Victoria’s Secret. While there, I noticed that Victoria’s Secret were also having an offer on their fragrances (Buy Two Get One Free) so I decided to take advantage of that deal. With that being said, I hate the newer look of their bags! It’s all polka-dotty and whanot. What happened to the adorable stripe-y bags? The new ones are just hideous!
