WODE By Bouddica: blue perfume?!

I just recently wrote about Lady Gaga’s new fragrance, FAME, that come out as a black mist but doesn’t actually appear black on your skin…but look out Gaga, you just got one-upped.  WODE by Bouddica actually comes out blue and STAYS BLUE on your skin and clothing.  Of course, it quickly fades away but how shocking would that be?  The fragance comes in a spray paint-inspired can, naturally, and, according to Refinery29, omits warm notes of juniper, berry, nutmeg, clary sage and angelica root – all in the gorgeous cobalt blue shade.  Now you know what to get me for my birthday…

Four Amazing New Beauty Products That I MUST Own

Bliss 2012 Election body lotions: Let’s first start off with the genius names (‘O’ bama orange and ‘mint’ romney).  Regardless of your political affiliation, Bliss will be handing out these lotions at upcoming political conventions and, starting August 27th (yesterday!), the body lotions will also be FREE for Bliss.com shoppers that spend $50 or more. Personally, I’m excited.

Corioliss The Mike Brush: I mean.  How did no one ever think of this before?  So brilliant.

Lady Gaga FAME perfume: I love Gaga so, of course, I’m pumped to smell her first fragrance.  It’s the first of its kind in fluid technology, exuding a black mist (“like the soul of fame”) once airborne.  Black perfume = genius.

NARS Andy Warhol Collection: Ok, so it’s not available until October 1st but you can see the full collection HERE. I can. not. wait.


One Bag & Three Beauty Obsessions


I haven’t done One Bag & Three Beauty Obsessions in awhile, BUT it’s back.




  • Narciso Rodriguez for Her: My perfume staple since college, this fragrance is a winner EVERY time.  The men love it. Trust.
  • Kate Somerville Exofilate Body Intensive Exofoliating Treatment: An intensive exfoliating treatment on my face?  Absolutely not.  On my body?  Yes, it’s a different ball game.  I love a good body slough and this stuff does it’s job.
  • Bumble & Bumble Prep: Lately I’ve been all about the prep.  I’ve been using a makeup primer and now, I’m also into the hair styling prep.  Bumble & Bumble’s products are fantastic so I wasn’t surprised when I started using and loving this prep product.

The Monday Rundown

Strawberry Margarita Popsicles: Summer is approaching and the combo of strawberries and margarita makes me dream of laying poolside on a lazy Sunday.

Tarte Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20: My girl Maura wrote up this product in Lucky a few months back and I decided that I needed to try it.  She was absolutely right- it goes on light and it’s super moisturizing.  I DO need to add concealer on top since it is so light and I have a few hyperpigmentation spots that need some extra coverage but I’m really enjoying this clay-based tinted moisturizer.

Diane Von Furstenberg Harper Connect Day Bag: Genius.  Pure genius.  Diane created this bag so that you can insert your iPad into it and, by design, use it while it’s still actually in your purse.

Coco CHANEL Silver Art Print from Etsy: I’ll always have a special place in my heart for anything CHANEL after interning at New York corporate headquarters while in college.  This print is subtle yet still incredibly chic. It will live in my living room.
