4160 Tuesdays What I Did on My Holidays EDP Perfume Review

4160 Tuesdays What I Did on Holiday

One of the things that I’ve learned is that coastal towns of the same latitude are really similar despite their political boundaries. Now coastal “touristy” towns are even more similar.

Sharon Tate Easter

The Lipstick League – Week of 3.30.15

HAPPY EASTER!

Question of the Week: What’s the last beauty product that really “wowed” you?

EauMG’s Answer: That’s a really good question. With perfume, I really fell for Chanel Misia. With skincare, I tend to fall for anything Paula’s Choice. With makeup I need to think some more. I think most recently I was really impressed with 3 Concept Eyes, a Korean makeup line. I love
