Review: Welcome Back Stila Creme Bouquet Eau de Parfum

Stila Creme Bouquet Eau de Parfum 3

Although I was already a Stila fan girl at the time of it’s release I still have flashbacks of my intro to Stila whenever I smell Creme Bouquet. At the time of the Stila Creme Bouquet Fragrance release I was still a bit of a Stila virgin. I think my first collection from the brand was the Picnic in the Park one….does anyone remember that release? CLICK!

About two years later or perhaps a bit more Creme Bouquet was released along with Jade Blossom. And, please, correct me if I’m wrong wasn’t there a third fragrance as well? The trio, as I recall, was meant to be layered together to create different blends and that was actually how it was marketed. Needless to say I loved these fragrances and was ever so happy when Stila recently brought back to full size of Creme Bouquet but I stand by my right to say it’s a damn shame they didn’t bring back the other two.

Philosophy Baby Collection: Philosophy Cleansing Hair-To-Toe Baby Wash Philosophy Baby Nurturing Lotion Philosophy Baby Comforting Diaper Cream

Philosophy Baby Collection 0402

I’ve been a virtual auntie to baby Lucy, born to my dear reader Dina a few months ago! Eep and I still haven’t seen her yet in person! Promise D, we meet up for din and shopping real soon or maybe we should just wait a few years for Lucy to develop into a beauty junkie like us!? Naaa knowing you she is already at that point of her life already! Gotta start ‘em young!

Needless to say, new and old mum’s are as passionate about good beauty as the rest of us plus I imagine those with daughters are ever so eager to introduce them to the dark side aka the beauty junkie lifestyle.

Yup the moral of the story is start ‘em young and why not start them with a best loved brand like Philosophy?

Philosophy Baby is a selection of natural bath and body goodies for newly born babes and their mum’s to enjoy!

Caution Lots of Coconut Ahead: Bath and Body Works Signature Coconut Collection Review

Bath and Body Works Signature Coconut Collection Summer 2011 1

I’ve been to a slew of various Caribbean islands and there’s always at least one guy on some street corner, fair, or flea market that has some sort of huge ass Silent Hill-like knife that’s splicing coconuts open and sticking a straw in ‘em to drink. It’s fascinating to watch because in most cases it’s a little old man who’s popping these things!

Yeah well, that’s my story of the day! Speaking of coconuts!

Bath and Body Works takes on everyone’s favorite tropical treat for the Summer with their new range Signature Coconut Collection. That collection features fragrance mists, lotions, potions, and even lipgloss in three new scents with a heavy base note of, why yes, you guessed it, coconut baby!

Yay or Nay: Feather Hair Extensions

Feather Hair Extentions

Someone obviously boarded the DeLorean and took a trip to the 80’s because, suddenly, this Summer, feather hair extensions are the IT accessory. My sister wore them in 1984, I have the pic to prove it although I can’t share as I’m saving it for some bigger and better blackmail scheme in the future!

Groan.

With a bottle of jack and some swagger, I’m imaging it was Ke$ha who unintentionally brought the trend back after her unexpected trip to the past. Hopefully she didn’t bring back leg warmers with her because no way in hell am I making that happen.

Feather hair extensions?

Yay or nay?

L’Occitane en Provence Pivoine Flora Eau de Parfum Review

LOccitane en Provence Pivoine Flora Eau de Parfum 5

Summer’s here…!

At least I think it’s here. We had a rather uneventful Spring with lots of rain and Summer kinda raced in to the point that AC is absolutely essential, SPF in large quantities should be worn, and a lightweight Summer fragrance needs to be picked out ASAP.

By the way, in other news, hordes of Jelly Fish crashed on Florida shores this weekend. The species is not really common (betcha they are related to the Kraken) and did sting a few peeps but Lifeguard’s had a “vinegar solution” on hand for those who did get stung…vinegar solution eh…hmmmm…..!

Pivoine Flora Eau de Parfum

Just a word to the wise this is why we have pools people. The beach has seaweed, unknown species of Jelly Fish that may or may not be related to the Kraken, and sand that will get up in your business.

Anyway….

’bout that lightweight Summer fragrance we all need!

L’occitane Pivoine Flora Eau de Parfum might be just the ticket and hopefully it keeps Jelly Fish at bay or at least works on their sting if you happen to subject yourself to the evil wiles of the beach.
