Sponsored: EXPRESS GLAM fragrance


When it comes to fragrance, I’m actually pretty particular.  I tend to stick to my classic favorites, but when a new product gets dropped off at my doorstep, I like to think that I give each perfume an equal opportunity to impress me, if you will.  Well, gotta say, I’m pretty into EXPRESS GLAM, the fragrance.  GLAM is EXPRESS’ second fragrance for women and is designed for the fashion-forward girl who’s sexy and stylish, but with downtown sensibility.  Hello, that pretty much describes me and all of my friends.  Now, as far as actual scent, GLAM boasts top notes of black currant and mandarin vodka (yum) with mid notes of sheer jasmine petals, lily of the valley and sandalwood flower.  Base notes include praline, creamy musk and white woods (one of my favorites).  I think I found my new favorite fragrance for fall or, “FFF,” as I like to call it.

Halloween 2013 Villains Party

When my friends decided to choose a “villains” theme for their 4th annual Halloween party, I was insanely excited.  Mostly because, by coincidence, I was already planning to dress up as Cruella De Vil, famous puppy killer.  And, of course, I knew that the lovely team at MAC Cosmetics would be able to help me out with Cruella’s famous eyebrows and face- nailed it.

It takes a village (full of makeup) to look like Cruella

Green has been, and always will be, my favorite color and when I say I had a childhood obsession with green, I’m not joking around.  According to my mother, I ONLY wore the color green (and some shades of teal and blue/greens) for the first four years of my life.  I also had a pair of green Nike sneakers that I literally wore until they fell apart.  Basically, when I decide I like something, I like REALLY like it…and you’ve gotta respect that quality about anyone.
