Fragrance Review – Pacifica Island Vanilla Perfume Roll-On

16 Jul

 I bought a Pacifica Island Vanilla Perfume Roll-On for me and for my friend because I liked it so much!

It’s $12.00 for .33 ounces of fragrance.  I love that it’s a roll on because you can just throw it in your make up for the summer and use whenever.

My thoughts

It smells like a spicy vanilla.  Super fun for summer.

The scent is light and you need to reapply after some time.

I love Pacifica products because they are more natural than others on the market!

Have you tried Pacifica?

Guilty Pleasure? New perfume for 2014 by the Olsen Twins

3 Jan

I don’t know what is wrong with me but I REALLY want to check out the new perfume from Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s company Elizabeth and James.  There are two “twin” fragrances- Nirvana White and Nirvana Black.  White has notes of Peony, Muguet, Tender Musk whereas Black has notes of Violet, Sandalwood, Vanilla.  They each stand on their own or can be worn together.


They hit Sephora stores January 14 and retail for $75.

New fave fragrance – Hanae Mori Butterfly

9 Dec

I am so excited to finally own this!


This smells like vanilla to me and on me, but not a gross sweet vanilla.  Just pretty and sophisticated.

You can get it at Sephora.  It retails for $68.00 for 1.7 oz for eau de toilette.

I was lucky to have a received a $15 gift card from Sephora on a purchase of $50.00 or more AND I had a $10.00 Groupon.  So my total with tax came to be $47.77.

I received the gift card because I am a Beauty Insider member.  It has its perks, peep it here.

My additional perk?  I cashed in my 100 points for a small Butterfly roll on to keep in my purse.  Shopping gods were super kind on Friday.

Do you have a favorite fragrance of the moment?


Cheap Discovery – ChapStick Hydration Lock

12 Oct

We live in Chicago so we know a thing or two about chapped/dry lips.  My normal go-to is either Blistex Complete Moisture or anything Burts Bee’s and Vaseline at night.  Seriously, I swear by Vaseline and keep a tiny little tub of it in my purse at all times.


But I have something new that I like ALMOST as much as I like Vaseline – ChapStick Hydration Lock!


It feels great, “tastes” great – a lovely Vanilla and acts as a lip primer for lipstick.  All of this for a $2.99 price tag.
