I love fragrance-and this trio of light rose and peony layered scent on me: some body wash, some hand creme and some roller ball fragrance is my triple love covering for Valentine’s Day.

Kimono Rose® is a modern floral collection that revels in true feminine sophistication. Sheer and romantic, its vital essence is at turns playful and passionate, a fragrant dance that glides easily from day to evening.

Effervescent clementine and voluptuous cassis tumble together on a creamy bed of satiny rose, white peony and jasmine petals. A gentle kiss of vanilla leaves a sheer, sensuous finish.

Say hello Gorgeous to Ms. Noel Sweeny!
She has a line of cosmetics called
Addiction NV-and whoa is it every purty!

Now I know you are getting ready for Valentines Day-and you may need a look that lasts.

That’s where Addiction NV Cosmetics based out of Huntington Beach California comes in.

I’m going to post a bit below about Noel Sweeny and how the makeup line got started, and then I also have a how to video for your ‘gettin’ gorgeous’ routine to celebrate the love in your life and the love your giving to those around you. Remember-you get what you give! So give love!

ADDICTION NV Cosmetics was born out of necessity by renowned make-up artist Noel Sweeny. After working for other cosmetics brands, Noel still wasn’t satisfied with the existing options and was constantly thinking of new ideas, colors, and products to make make-up easier for her customers. Instead of the usual 45 minute make-up lesson using 10 products at a time, Noel found more success by creating the right look for her clients in 5 minutes with just 3 to 4 products. To Noel, “make-up should be quick and customizable; and the “one look fits all” solution never works!”

Now-fill up your kids and your pets-those who are immediately around you. Next-move onto your workspace and be sure and fill up the love cups there-and go on, and so on and so forth!

Hello Gorgeous!

I’ve been cooking in the kitchen again-and what started as a post for the beautiful cocktail apron by
Hen House Linens quickly became
an “I Love Lucy” episode at home.

Enjoy the video which in my opinion is a great shot
of the back of my head.

The recipe is on the bottom of this post, anchovies
and all.

Now, this post started for Hen House Linens, and I am wearing the prettiest cocktail apron in the video but due to my funky
framing you can’t see me wearing it. I’m wearing the red one as
seen on the lady in this photo on the left. I love the big black
grosgrain ribbon! It’s such a pretty accent to a little black dress as you hostess your party!

When I think of Diane Von Furstenburg – I think of
chic, sophisticated style. Her new fragrance Diane is
exactly that! I have been sampling the creme in this fragrance and it’s thick, moisturizing and leaves a
lingering scent of the parfum. It’s amazing!
