    Beyonce Midnight Heat @beyonceparfums

    Beyonce is doing a lot of amazing things lately. I watched the HBO special on her year off and her life. So when I had a change to check out her new perfume, I jumped at the chance! I love this perfume and it wears well throughout the night. The top note is fresh but ends with a swirl of sandalwood and amber.

    It is totally sexy and perfect scent to wear on a night out.  Totally my new go-to!

    The fruity floral gourmand opens with juicy top notes of Dragonfruit, Starfruit and Armenian Plum. The heart is a vivid floral bouquet built upon the Purple Mokara Orchid, Queen of the Night Black Tulip and Purple Peony. Finally, the base seduces the senses with Warm Amber, Patchouli and Sandalwood.

    Flowers Me Up! @Thelittleglass

    Need something to freshen up your office or home? Maybe come flowers will help!

    For many of us, the long months of low temperatures have an affect on our psyche. Just like certain colors can boost our mood, so too can scents.
    Brooklyn based Florist Cary Pereyra of The Little Glass Slipper has created a floral arrangement that includes herbal components to help lift your spirits during the winter.


    Gardenias: They have a warm scent and one bloom can perfume a large space very quickly.
    Seeded eucalyptus: Eucalyptus has been used in a variety of commercial preparations to help battle respiratory infections since it is antibacterial and antiviral.
    Roses: The essential oil of rose petals is distilled to create rose water. Rose water has an astringent quality to it that can be used on sensitive and dry skin. It has also shown to be effective as an anti aging treatment when used as a prevention against wrinkles.
    Dried Poppy Pods: Californian poppy in particular is a mildly less potent narcotic than opium poppy and helps with insomnia and soothing respiratory conditions.

    @GUCCI, are you Guilty?

    ‘Cause I am Guilty of falling in love with this fragrance!

    I got this for my birthday from my brother and I absolutely love using it. I spray it on before I go to work in the morning and sometimes I like using it before going out at night. It can be used for every occasion, which is great. It doesn’t last very long but I like that the scent dies down after a little bit…it sort of mellows out.

    It is described as a “sheer, floral-oriental” scent with “a bright burst of citrus and a dangerous hint of black pepper.” It gives a feel of sexiness and power…nothing more a woman needs to feel. 🙂

    One of my top favs out of the many I own…scent is a powerful indicator of what my emotion will be and I can say this makes me feel good! It’s the final touch before I head out the door.

    Gucci Guilty comes in sizes of 1 oz, 1.6 oz, or 2.5 oz and in a bold glass and metal bottle.
