Avon Brazil Beat Eau de Toilette Review

Avon Brazil Beat 3

I’m half Portuguese, did ya know they speak Portuguese in Brazil? Many people think that Brazilians speak some form of Spanish but Brazil was actually a Portuguese Colony which is where our influence on their language comes from. In my experience Brazilians articulate their words a bit more rhythmically than natives of Portugal but none the less the words and their meanings are the same. My father was born and raised in Portugal but I swear the man sounds Brazilian sometimes with the way he forms his words and speaks.

Fun fact of the day and utterly random but it does bring me to my review on Avon Brazil Beat Eau de Toilette.

A little bit of a steal and a deal here if you’re looking for a fun, fruity fragrance for day time use but only if you don’t have a distinguished nose for fragrance.

Smashbox Heartbreaker Eau De Parfum Review

Smashbox Heartbreaker Eau De Parfum 1

You ever get a makeup lemming that you never fulfill? That happens to me alot. I get a lemming but it falls through and I sometimes don’t indulge because something else caught my fancy or I just got to busy to get said item, etc….something happens and months go by and I simply forget the lemming.

That happened with Smashbox Heartbreaker Eau De Parfum.

I wanted it so badly at the time, didn’t indulge and months went by….

Suddenly it pops up for sale and the lemming is as strong as the force yo.

Stila Mandarin Mist Eau de Parfum Review

Question, what do you guys smell like right now? Just don’t say cheese or sweat, I’ll gag…! Ha!

No seriously what’s your scent of the moment? Right now I’m kinda sorta obsessed with Viva La Juicy Perfume. I stopped wearing it for a while but suddenly it became my fav go to in August.

I’m also obsessing over trying the new S by Shakira Perfume, AWOOOOOOOOOOO! I read a review and it was all about the rave, so yeah, I need to try some, stat.

Speaking of fragrances and such, remember Stila Creme Bouquet Perfume that stuff proves impossible to track down. I have a tiny spritz left and I’m savoring it. Stila needs to get on board with creating more fragrances. Hell am I old if I admit to remembering when it came out!?

Speaking of, I recently got my hands on Stila Mandarin Mist which never tempted me until it got marked down….

Pacifica California Star Jasmine Perfume Review

Ahh California. Particularly Southern California where it never rains or at least it never does when I visit. Perfect weather, perfect sky, perfect ocean…..I probably couldn’t live full time in California but lord knows I love visiting a few times a year (I like my four seasons too much to live there!).

Inspired by a Southern California, Pacific California Star Jasmine Perfume is the newest fragrance launch from Pacific.

Kat Von D Adora Perfume Rollerball Review

Dude, did you hear…

Kat Von D tweeted she’s dating Jesse James.

Oh Lawd.

Seriously?

Ok, ’nuff celebrity gossip for today.

As you know Kat Von D’s Fall Collection 2010 consists of a brand new fragrance from the tattooed goddess, entitled Adora. I just wanna say I adora you all…ha! Sorry that was screaming for me to play on it.

Kat Von D Adora Perfume Rollerball 1

This is Kat’s third scent with Saint and Sinner being part of the original release. I’ve only casually sniffed both Saint and Sinner and I know you’ve wanted reviews of them for a while now, promise I’ll get on that soon.

Adora means “beloved one” in Latin which is what this fragrance is all about, a romantic, sensually sweet blend of fruits and floral.
