A Peek Inside my IPSY Glam Bag ~ May 2014

I always look forward to receiving my IPSY Glam Bag in the mail each month, and May was no exception. I get overly excited when I see the hot pink bubble envelope in my mailbox and I can't help but tear right into it in order to discover what beauty goodies await inside.

Best Spring & Summer Perfumes! + Perfume Shopping Tips!

It's finally beginning to feel like Spring in NYC and after the bipolar weather we experienced this year I am really looking forward for Summer to give us a hot embrace! The transition from rich, deep, fragrances to light, fresh, scents seems like an indication that spring has arrived and today I am going share my all time favorite Spring & Summer perfumes, as well as a perfume that is currently on my wish-list!

Choosing a perfume is a personal experience. Each individual responds differently to scents, and our noses have their preferences. In order to decide if we like a fragrance, we first have to see how well it mixes with our body chemistry. I personally love fresh, citrus-y, fruit-y, perfumes with hints of musk, and sandalwood.
