My Daily Dose

I am back to gym and I hope this time I will not feel lazy and will take aback again. I mean I really need to do some exercise, I am not getting any younger and I don’t want that time will come that I did not do anything and it will be too late for me to become physical fit because I am already got sick. On the other hand aside from going to the gym, I am now making sure that I always take my vitamins before I go to work at dawn, and I always make sure that I have the vitamins on stock. I always have my Vitamin C and Vitamin E, wanted to try another vitamins but I am already used to this, maybe next time I will.

How To Spruce Up Your Look

When it comes to your personal style, it’s easy to start to fall into a rut. After all, we’re creatures of habit and tend to do the same things over and over again. However, just because you’ve fallen into a fashion rut doesn’t mean that you can’t break out of your habits and spruce up your look. Follow these smart tips to give your personal style a fun new edge.

Try Different Clothing Stores

When it comes to clothes, a lot of us find our favorite stores and end up shopping at them almost exclusively. If you buy your clothes at the same old department store at the mall time and time again, then it’s no wonder that you’ve fallen into a style rut. Consider trying out a store that you’ve never stepped foot in before, such as that quirky vintage store or trendy clothing boutique.

Change Your Hair

Your hairstyle is one of the first things that catches people’s eyes when they look at you. If you’ve been wearing the same old boring hairstyle for years, then it might be time to change things up. This doesn’t mean that you have to chop it all off, however. If you want to keep your length, then consider trying highlights or a new color. If you want to keep your color and your length, then give bangs a try.

Have Fun With Your Makeup

If you wear the same makeup look each day, then it’s time to step out of your beauty comfort zone. Something as simple as a red lipstick can inject new life into your makeup look. If you’re too demure to play with bold colors, then try a subtle highlighter on your cheekbones or experiment with false eyelashes. Remember, makeup isn’t permanent. If you don’t like your new look, you can always just wash it off.

Life’s too short to stay in the same style rut. Making these fun changes to your look won’t just improve your appearance. Indeed, it will boost your overall feeling of confidence and make you feel like a whole new person. If you want to feel new and improved and put some pep in your step, then give these style changes a try.

Beauty Rule

I guess you all know that I adore Nadine, she is so simple yet she upholds herself very well. Simple but when you look at her you will be very stunned with her beauty. On the other hand, as I posted in Mary Anne’s Musings, I finally bought the “Team Real Book“. Here is some of Nadine’s beauty artist ‘beauty rule’.

Always clean your face before applying anything. Then, rub ice all over to reduce the appearance of pores.

Even if you have oily skin, you still need to use moisturizer. Just pick one that is oil free so it doesn’t leave your skin greasy. Brightening concentrates/serums also help reveal your natural glow. You can even mix it with foundation for a luminous complexion.

Choose multi-functional products, like a cleanser, makeup remover and toner in one. This will cut down time spent on your skincare and makeup routine.

For more tips, buy the ‘Team Real’ book of Jadine, I can assure you, it’s worth every penny.

Perfume: Pretty to Peculiar

Fragrance captures the essence of a cultural moment as much as clothing and music do. The sense of smell triggers memories more strongly and immediately than the other senses. Therefore, it is no wonder that people become majorly attached to their favorite perfumes, often continuing to wear the same ones even as they move through different clothing styles.

Perhaps the most iconic perfume of all time is Chanel No. 5. Famously worn by Marylin Monroe, the fragrance embodies beauty and glamor. Though it smells a bit mature by today’s standards, it was known for its sense of fun at the time of its release. Chanel No. 5 is a deliberately and obviously artificial floral that is finished with a huge dollop of soft powder. Its over-the-top femininity evokes the last years of Hollywood’s golden age, the last moments before fashion loosened up and style ceased to be classic.

Calvin Klein’s CK One is beloved precisely because it represents a rejection of traditional femininity and prettiness. Positioned as a unisex scent, CK One captured the attitude of the early ’90s. It is clean, sharp and utterly unfussy. It was the ideal fragrance for a cultural moment known for its lack of interest in cultivated style.

Fruity florals have been the most popular type of fragrance for the past 15 years, and Calvin Klein once again created a singular representation of an era in popular culture. It is sweet and practically edible, but it has a spicy core that distinguishes it from other fragrances in this genre. Its richness gives it a womanly edge that much of the decidedly teen-oriented fruity floral competition does not have. A Euphoria perfume set is still a great gift all these years later due to the enduring appeal of this fresh, subtly provocative scent.

Interestingly, today’s most beloved perfumes are best appreciated when contextualized in collections. Maison Margiela’s Replica line recreates specific locations, like a jazz club in Brooklyn, a warm beachfront or a Parisian flower market. Derek Lam’s line captures the energy of different New York City districts. Nest’s scents are inspired by paintings of flowers but are not rote olfactory facsimiles of the images. They are layered, complex interpretations of what the flowers represent and how they contrast with the other creations on the collection.

In all of these instances, perfume comes to say something important about how people treat the notion of style. Whether traditional prettiness or fringe abstraction is the flavor of the day, some genius perfume developer will figure out how to communicate those ideas through the sense of smell.
