Fragrance Is In The Air

Hello ladies, I hope everyone is having a fabulous week thus far. I am having a very busy week, needless to say I am using the concealer like you wouldn't believe. I wanted to let everyone know that starting April 30 until May 5, 2006, Saks is having fragrance week. With every $85 purchase you will receive a "flacon" or in everyday lingo, a perfume bottle, while supplies last. Now is a great time to pick up a new spring fragrance for you or for your mother since Mother's Day is May 14. Last year, I picked up Viktor & Rolf's Flowerbomb for spring and was highly pleased. Just when I thought I would never need another Bobbi Brown Brick all over face shimmer (for about 6 months), I get a voicemail from the "ever so sweet" Ms. Juanita to tell me she was sending me the Brick Compact in "Brownie." I went she has another one. I just bought Apricot in March, she said well that was spring and this is the one for the summer. I thought about it and said the magic words, "just send it anyway." Of course she replied if I didn't like it I could return it and I responded, "Ms. Juanita, I haven't met that many beauty products I haven't liked." Brownie will be here by Saturday.

    Everyday I can't wait to see what you'll be talking about on All about the Pretty(It's the same anticipation I have waiting for Splendora's weekly fashion forecast). You give me the fix I need to make it through the day.

    Thanks for the shout out and again for my gift, look for something a little extra in your Paper City package this month.

    I have a question about the bobbi brown compact. Do you use them all over your face or do you use them as if they were a bronzer.

    Hi Julia and all of our friends,

    I have keep quiet long enough! I am Julia's beauty and makeup junkie friend from Houston, Texas who had lived in Northern California for the past 5 years.
    Julia has a wealth of information, knows exactly what she is talking about, and I consider her a beauty princess!!

    I too started using eye cream when I was 13 years old! This is the key girls - along with exfoliating and using a good mositurizer, lip balm and body lotion!

    Since today's topic is the Bobbi Brown Compact I had to commnent on my latest purchase which was the Special Value of the Day on QVC last week! Smashbox - "You're on in 5"!! It arrived yesterday when I got home from work and I will have to admit that it made my day! It was a ten piece collection that consisted of Photo Finish Foundation Primer SPF 15 With Dermaxyl Complex (which feels wonderful under my foundation), 2 eye shadows, eyelash primer, mascara (great wand), 2 lip glosses (a girl can never have too many) and eye liner with a brush! How exciting is that!!

    I claimed to have calmed down a bit around beauty supplies (not really true) but I will always take care of my skin and I agree with Julia eye cream and lip gloss - Never be with out!!!

    I will check in later with some of my other favorite beauty products and wines!

    It really is all about the Pretty!
