Beauty shopping is finally becoming easier and easier in SA. I am all about shopping beauty online its the culture in UK so its been a big struggle that lots of products just aren’t accessible. Woolworths is one of those stores that makes everything easy with not only their own brand but a whole range of brands. Some of my favourite brands like are available in the Woolworths beauty department like Smashbox, Stila, Elizabeth Arden and Ren are available online.
This is one of those rare times that I actually chat about fragrances because if you follow me you will know I am not a great fan of perfume. I can appreciate when a fragrance smells good but I am super sensitive when it comes to smells that most of the time its just too over powering for me. However these two landed on my desk the Elizabeth Arden Green Tea Nectarine Blossom and the Body Shop Kahaia White Flora I decided to write a post as they are both perfect speing fragrances.
So I have wanted to start sharing with my readers what’;s in makeup bags of beauty editors and bloggers and here is the first instalment from the lovely Juana the beauty editor at Cosmo SA. Here is what she loves and what she can’t live without:
Christmas is only 23 days away so if you haven’t even started shopping then here are some more Christmas ideas. Last week I posted some beauty and fashion ideas plus my jewellery christmas gifts which basically I want all of them! Today’s post is some Christmas gift set ideas for the serious beauty lovers:
Christmas Beauty and Fashion Gift Ideas: I can’t quite get my head around the fact Christmas is next month and that 2016 is around the corner. So its that time when we are deciding what we want for Christmas I know I still haven’t worked it out. So for those of you who need some ideas then here is some ideas:
I can’t quite get my head around that Christmas is around the corner and that 2016 isn’t that far away and because next year I turn the big 40. As always Chanel bring us some gorgeous goodies for christmas to either spoil ourselves with or get someone else to spoil us. I got my hands on a couple items from the holiday collection Rouge Noir Absolutment to play around with plus a mini version of their cult perfume Chanel no 5.
Its not often that I write about a fragrance because if you follow my blog you know that I am not a fan of them. I often find the fragrance way too strong for me but at a recent launch with the L’Oreal group I was pleasently surprised after smelling so many fragrances by the Flowerbomb by Viktor & Rolf. Its one of those pretty summer fragrances that is pretty with some sweetness thrown in.
Each spring Chanel launch a new and improved Chanel Chance Eau de Toilette this year its the Chanel Chance Eau Vive. This is the first time I have actually tried the fragrance because as you all know I don’t normally wear perfume but this one is really fresh comes in this gorgeous bottle.
I Love Azarro Fragrances
If you follow my blog you will know I hardly ever write about fragrances because I don’t wear them but there is something about the Azarro fragrances that I just love. This time they have launched these two beauties for him and her and I love them.
The packaging for the ladies fragrance is beautiful, I love the simplicity of it with the touch of bling which is always a favourite of mine. Its fresh and light which is how I like a fragrance. Its a fragrance that was created to represent the seductive playful woman. Its got woody and floral composition with a hint of amber. A combination of cardamom, lemon spicy notes, blended with a rosy, tangy and sparkly accord. With the heart of the fragrance being rose and lily. There are 3 sizes 30 (R395),50 (625) and 75ml (R745).
I absolutely love a man’s fragrance and when a man smells good its normally what you smell as soon as are near them. I love the Azarro pour homme and I love it on my husband, its a masculine sexy fragrance. With star anise to add spice and warmth, lavender to add a calm and soothing note and just a fresh smell. Its comes in a 50ml (R675) and a 100ml (R954).
Both a perfect gifts to give to the one you love and with Father’s Day around the corner the pour homme fragrance would be the perfect gift.
Christmas Gift Ideas For Men
I never normally do anything for the guys so this year I thought why not compile a gift guide for either the man in your life, your brother, dad or a best mate. Most of the gifts are a little pricey so let it just be a guide to you if you can’t think of what to buy. The guys are pretty simple they love gadgets, want to smell good and of course look good.
So here is my gift guide for men and hopefully it will inspire you:
1) Ipod Touch
4) Aviator Glasses
6) Fossil Watch
