Fresh Vanilla Lemon on the go!

mhu-reviews-414146

I have probably three of Lavanila’s Roller-Ball Fragrances, because a) they smell AMAZING and last for hours, b) they’re affordable and c) they are so portable! I keep 2 in my purse at all time – and put a little perfume on with little to no effort.

I absolutely adore this vanilla lemon scent. My sister tried to steal it from me – and I had to karate-chop her to keep her hands off it! It smells heavenly. It smells like spring and summer wrapped up in one tub. Trust me. Amazing.

Lavanila’s Healthy Roller-Ball Fragrances are the perfect fragrance to throw in your bag. These Roller-Balls are ideal for jet setting as well as running around while doing errands at home.

The Healthy Fragrance Roller-Ball ($19) is travel friendly, purse friendly and skin friendly. The fragrance is blended with exotic essential oils and skin soothing botanicals for timeless expressions of nature that captivate the senses and nurture the skin.

Introducing Aerin Beauty!

mhu-reviews-1215-4

“Amber Musk is a warm, inviting scent you want to wrap yourself in – like a soft cozy blanket on a cold snowy night.” – Aerin Lauder.

Aerin Lauder is Estee Lauder’s granddaughter. Aerin founded her lifestyle brand in 2011, and since has created many popular items for her cosmetics, home goods, accessories and purses. Estee Lauder released five of Aerin’s perfumes in 2013, Gardenia Rattan, Amber Musk, Lilac Path, Ikat Jasmine, and Evening Rose. With the five scents, Aerin wanted to capture the scent for each mood and time of year.

Each of the fragrances were developed with the help of Firmenich perfumers. The collection was inspired by Aerin’s favorite fabrics, and the outer boxes by designs from her line. Each bottle has a different stone as the cap, representing the color of one of the ingredients in the perfume. Green for Gardenia Rattan, pale brown for Amber Musk, pink for Lilac Path, white for Ikat Jasmine and purple for Evening Rose.

I have tried Amber Musk, and I’m in love. AERIN Beauty Amber Musk blends sensual florals, distinctive amber and creamy musk. Ambrox makes a velvety first impression, contrasted by a succulent burst of Coconut Water and the femininity of Rose Centifolia Absolute. Like the glow of amber flames, lingering Benzoin & Musk infuses the fragrance with warmth.

You’re going to want this fragrance, and not tell ANYONE what it is!

ellelaime

Part of me wants to keep this fragrance all to myself. I don’t want anyone to know, it’s my little secret!  You know when you find a perfume you love, you just want to keep it all to yourself? I’ve actually had it happen before, found a fragrance I love….then next thing I know people are asking what it is – then BOOM! We all smell the same. That’s no fun.

So I’m going to tell you about this so you can run out and get it before anyone else you know gets it…. and it can be ALL YOURS. If I know you and you’re reading this, you better not buy it – or I’ll cut you. Okay, I won’t cut you, but I will stop hanging out with you. I’m in love….don’t take this from me.

Lolita Lempicka’s Elle L’Aime, meaning “she loves”, will let you discover what that is. Unlock the mystery within and enter a world that reveals the complexities and intricacies of the way women love. When you know Elle L’aime, you know what she loves. At once you understand what is precious, sensual and absolutely decadent.

Elle L’aime IS the scent of woman … her laugh, her zest for life, her desire, her soul. And like this very special woman, Elle L’aime too demands to be noticed; drawing you in, inviting a loved one to come close and be captivated.

This sophisticated, feminine, radiant floral scent has dazzling top notes of Bergamot, Neroli, and Lime, melded with an exotic, decadent Coco Essence heart, and warmed to a sumptuous close with luscious Vanilla and Sandalwood.

To experience Elle L’aime is to understand love’s mystery.

I’m not kidding you….. this is THE perfume for Christmas. Trust.

Okay let’s talk about my tacky Christmas cottage. I love this thing. When I was younger someone in my family, I believe my grandma, had this fiber-optic Christmas decoration, and I LOVED it. When my boys were really little, I found this fiber-optic Christmas village at Target. I snatched it up. Ever since then, it’s been the favorite Christmas decoration of my kids and nieces/nephews. I love the thing. You’re going to be seeing more of it. Get ready. :)

REVIEW: Katy Perry’s new fragrance – Killer Queen!

1239749_10151668536138737_627167743_n

Katy Perry introduces her latest fragrance Killer Queen by Katy Perry ($59), just in time for fall. The new, strikingly gorgeous perfume captures Katy Perry’s rebellious spirit, throwing convention to the wind. Inspired by a queen’s scepter, the distinct jewel-shaped bottle in shades of royal red and gold portray sexy sophistication and lawless luxury. The faceted bottle rests languorously on its side, like a loose, precious gem fit for a Queen.

Seriously – look at the size of this box! It’s enormous! I took a picture of it in front of my head, showing how big the box is, but my son urged me to not share it. :) It’s huge!

I tore that bad boy open*, and I really enjoy the perfume! I like it – it’s different! The notes are Wild Berries and Red Velvet Flower. It’s a really great combo. I love it! I hadn’t smelled Katy’s last fragrance, so I don’t know how it compares to that….but this one, I love!

Here are some behind-the-scenes photo from the upcoming Killer Queen campaign! Can’t wait to see the rest of it! Katy is smokin hot!
