Aqua41 Cologne & Perfume Review & Giveaway

Disclaimer While I love playing with my makeup and polish, I do have another obsession… perfume. I am fairly picky about the scents I wear and try to be courteous to those around me.  When I go to work, I wear lighter scents because some people I work with are sensitive, but wear more fragrant scents when out and about with my boyfriend.  Today I have a cologne and a perfume from Aqua41 to share with you… plus a giveaway for the duo! Let’s take a look at both fragrances, and then we’ll move onto the giveaway! Aqua41 for Her Feel Sexy and Beautiful with this new fragrance by The American Coastal Company. This fragrance is life in paradise. Walking down the beach with pure white sand, and chilled ocean water rinsing over your feet. It’s the sea spray misting your face, and the warmth of your sunkissed skin on a summer…

Callio Fragrance Summer, Kiele and Belle Review & Giveaway

Callio Fragrance is a new-to-me brand that graciously sent over 3 of their perfumes for me to review PLUS they offered a giveaway to one of my lucky readers! I went through the Callio Fragrance site and it took me forever to settle on 3 fragrances – they all sounded amazing!  After what had to be an hour, I finally settled on 3 (there are 7 total) – I picked Summer, Kiele and Belle.  Lets go through each scent description and then we’ll move onto the giveaway! Summer Summer was my favorite of the 3 scents.   Summer is described as a blend of freesia, peach and cantaloupe.  I agree with the description and you can detect all 3 of these scents in the perfume plus a very faint hint of musk.  It’s definitely an interesting mix of scents but they work well together and it definitely reminds me of Summer.…

Briar Muse Coconut Milk & Raspberry Eau de Parfum Review

Have you ever been to OpenSky.com?  It’s a fabulous marketplace with so many different products on it!  From home gadgets to beauty to fun little odds and ends!  Today’s review is on a product I received from the OpenSky.com marketplace! I received Briar Muse Eau de Parfum in Coconut Milk & Raspberry and I can’t stop smelling my wrists! Sounds like an odd combination, and I wasn’t sure what to expect, but if you like fruity scents without the incredibly sugary sweet smell – this would be perfect! Briar Muse Coconut Milk & Raspberry scent description is: sweet red raspberries and toasted coconut blend fabulously with buttercream frosting, yellow cake, and warm vanilla.  That description is spot on!  It isn’t overly strong, but it lingers around you just enough that people walking by get a slight whiff of it. I used a spritz on my wrist around 10am, it’s now…
