Last Minute Tips for a Flawless Look

This upcoming week don’t blend in with the crowd; putting a twist on your everyday makeup routine with a few simple techniques can create an eye catching look, making you the center of attention.

Francesca Roman, glam expert at NYC’s Butterfly Studio Salon knows firsthand how to easily enhance your best features, creating a super flirty look.

1. Barely There Shadow – Say no to smoky eyes and make eyes appear bigger and more vibrant with soft pink, white and nude tones. Choose colors that could double as a blush or highlighter and play with mixing these shadows on your lids, we love hues with a shimmer, like a champagne or sparkling peach. If you prefer not to glisten, go for a shadow texture with a satin finish to add a hint of sheen when choosing solid and matte colors. For a bit more smolder around the eye experiment with deeper pinks and plums. Remember to keep the look gentle by dusting lightly and blending well.

2. Peach Lips – A Peach lip is slightly unexpected but serves as a great alternative for those who don’t want to commit to wearing (and maintaining) a red lip. Adding instant warmth to skin, we love this visually delicious shade. Stay away from too much shine or gloss with peach lips and opt for either a matte look or dewy look by blending with your favorite untinted chapstick.

    3. Feminine Blush – For just the right amount of whimsical, stray away from bronzers and couture-runway-model cheek definition. Instead, go for a soft doll-like cheek instead. We love the “flushed all over” blush look that covers a bit more surface area on your cheek. Use a pale, powdery pink or a pinkish-red blush with cool/blue undertones, with or without specs. Lightly dab blush while extending the color line all the way to your temples – this really helps in highlighting the eye area and works to bring out the angles of your face. If you’re looking for a less forward cheek look, try the technique of dusting blush under the apples of your cheeks instead of directly on top.

Lady Gaga Fame Perfume Review

Two years of invasive experimentation in Paris laboratories have led to the launch of Lady Gaga Fame Eau de Parfum. The first-of-its-kind fragrance technology is an extract of Gaga’s bold and demanding sexiness. Darkness, light, and sensuality merge to reveal an opulent, addictive fragrance that’s black like the soul of fame, but invisible once airborne.
When I first received the Lady Gaga Fame Perfume for review I caught myself wondering if the perfume would actually show black on my skin. I know that this sounds a little crazy but this was a dark perfume, and I am used to perfume being transparent. So I did wonder about this. The bottle and lid itself is really cool looking nothing that I have seen before. I smelled the perfume before use and I can say that I really liked the scent.

Once I sprayed my first spray on my skin I was shocked to see the black disappear and was clear. I would however suggest not spraying it onto your clothes. I am really happy with the scent and design of the Lady Gaga Fame Perfume. When you look at the bottle, the color, and smell the perfume I can say you can see this is a Lady Gage Perfume, which I really like.

Get a bottle of this fabulous perfume today.

Çorkcicle Review


In our home, my hubby and I love too enjoy a nice glass of wine once in a while. Since I am pregnant, I can't have any for a while.  My hubby is still enjoying it for both of us. An issue that you can run into with wine is when it looses its chill. Thankfully, there is a really cool and innovative item to help keep your wine cooler for longer. I was sent the Corkcicle from Wine Vine Imports to do a review on and I have to say that this Corkcicle is a quality item that is handy to have. Plus, it looks really cool in your bottle.

The Corkcicle allows you to chill wine from the inside. This wine chiller can be placed inside any wine bottle to make it the correct temperature. Corkcicle keeps chilled whites chilled and cools room-temp reds without ice. No excessively warm or chilled wine. Just the right temperature each time, every time.
