How To Pick A Romantic Scent

Posted on 03/13/2012

Perfume creator Sarah Horowitz is an expert on the art of seduction. Is it possible to draw somebody with a hint of the right notes? I have to admit when a man wears the right fragrance it's definitely a turn-on! When we have a an occasion that calls for it, like Valentine's Day or a romantic night out how do we know pick the right perfume or notes that guarantee you will be a master in the art of seduction?

Sarah Horowitz gave us some tips in Us Weekly magazine such as pairing a a dark dress with a rich fragrance like amber or jasmine that contain natural aphrodisiacs. If you're going on a picnic during the daytime then wear a lighter scent such as sandalwood or vanilla because it feels flirtier. She also says you can't go wrong with a "food scent" because comfort food smells increase attraction. Although I don't suggest going out and buying the latest perfume that smells like McDonalds, perfumes that do have hints of chocolate, sugar or honey can be very intoxicating.

I happen to be a big fan of Tokyo Milk Dark's Honey and the Moon for a dessert perfume and Tom Ford's Black Orchid as a perfect lady of the night aroma that will seduce any man in an instant. Sarah Horowitz, who counts Jennifer Garner as one of her many celebrity devotees has a great 'date in the park' scent called Perfect Veil Roll On Perfume Oil that recreates the smell of clean, naked skin that is subtle yet provocative.

Clarisonic Black Opal Sonic Infusion System

Posted on 03/14/2012

Shop the full Clarisonic collection here!

Most likely your skincare isn't working to it's maximum potential because it's not penetrating deep enough into your pores. Exfoliation plays such an important part in sloughing off dead skin cell buildup and allowing new ones to resurface. The least amount of "blockage" your skincare has of getting to that pore the better your products will work. This works hands down on the rest of our face but the eye area is totally seperate as the skin around it is a lot more thin and sensitive. This is where an ingenious product has come out that will allow your eye serum to penetrate deep into the pores, The Clarisonic Black Opal Sonic Infusion System. This breakthrough in eye care uses the same sonic technology seen in it's popular facial cleansing family, Clarisonic, to instantly smoothe and hydrate the eye area. The Black Opal comes with the Anti-Aging Sea Serum although you can also use any eye serum you like. Simply pump a tiny bit into the domed out sponge, turn it on and gently put it over the chosen eye in circular motions. The micro massage action is allowing the pores to open and deliver your chosen serum beneath the surface. After just 4 weeks there will be a noticeable improvement in skin's elasticity, fine lines and brighter eye area!

Talika's Heated Eyelash Curler

Posted on 03/15/2012

If you haven't curled your lashes with heat then you don't know what you're missing. Standard eyelash curlers are a wonderful way to open your eye area and allow your mascara to really work to it's full potential. My lashes, just like my hair are extremely stubborn and I find the curl doesn't last that long or really work that well with a standard lash curler. However, once I discovered the power a little heat can have on my lashes, they have never looked so good. If you power a great mascara along with a heated lash curler it will be your lashes that get noticed first! I was at lunch with a friend the other day and couldn't help oogling over how long and curled her lashes were. Typically it's an eyeshadow or a lipstick that draws our attention but her lashes looked so amazing I had to ask. Her secret: heated lash curler!

Talika is a brand you can entrust the health of your eyelashes to. For years their products have been growing, curling, darkening and thickening lashes with their breakthrough Lipocils formulas. Now, they've come out with a Heated Lash Curler to expand on the lash phenomenon in a safe and revolutionary way. The thermal system works in minutes with a targeted and controlled heat, doubling the curve of your eyelashes without damaging them. Once you curl with heat you'll never go back!
