Instead of makeup dupes, here's a FRAGRANCE dupe I figured out (@ work).
For those of you who like DOLCE & GABBANA LIGHT BLUE but don't wanna stick with the same fragrance or want other alternatives, you should try:
  1. Eclat D'arpege by Lanvin - Honestly, today was the first time I smelled it (even thought it's been out since 2003) and the first thought that came to mind was 'LIGHT BLUE!' I feel like it is a bit softer than Light Blue, but I HEARD the staying power is pretty good.
  2. I Love Love by Moshino - This fragrance I've known since it was out. It is similar but different to Light Blue. It has a blend of citrus that Light Blue doesn't have. Very fun and feminine. Bottle reminds mee of Olive from Popeye! All the bottles of the Cheap & Chic line are the same but vary in colors.

Fragrance: ED HARDY by Christian Audigier

I am a somewhat perfume-aholic, though I do not wear it everyday. Working with fragrances for over 8 years will do that to you. Anyhoo, I give you my next new fragrance:

A light, fruity and fun fragrance. LOVE THE BOTTLE. Tattoo artinspired. Super cute. It is Eau de Parfum, so you are kinda getting your moneys worth! Anyhoo, I really want this, but I have OH-SO many fruity fragrances already. I spray it on at work whenver I can =X
3.4 $75
1.7 $55


I am officially stocked with supplies and READY!!!

If any of you have checked out my store, it's taken mee quite a bit of time to get everything posted and stocked. So, I just ordered a bunch of additional items and stocked everything up. SO EXCITED. But, it's gonna take a lilo while for the new stuff to be posted, since I personally take all the photos and write descriptions for every item.

Anyhoo, I just ordered a bunch of bubble mailers. Poly and Kraft...200 total!!! =] Therefore, I will say again...I AM SUPPLIED AND READY!

Had a weekday fun of shopping and FREE movies with J. FREE because AE is giving out FREE AMC tickets to any one who tries on a pair of denim. Awesome deal! So, we ended up watching "Burn After Reading" and "The Women". Let's just say...I'm glad we didn't have to pay for them. They were both okay. I wouldn't really recommend them though, but again, everyone is different =]

Walked over to Forever 21 and did some damage. Didn't think I would find anything, but I was wrong...controlled myself and only ended up with 2 items.
I've been looking for a military-like coat, so this is pretty darn cute! Couldn't pass it up.
Can't wait till it gets cold so I can whip out all my coats and jackets!

L.A.M.B. by Gwen Steffani Convertible Clutch
I am OH-SO in love with this bag! I was hesistant to purchase it because of lack of MULLA, but I just couldn't pass it up!!! You can use it as a regular clutch folded in half, or like a bag unfolded. So, it's like having 2 bags in one =]. It surprisingly holds alot of items. I've been recently using it every time I go out! That pocket in the front is PERFECT for my cell phone, so that I don't have to dig into my bag to find it. And usually by the time I find my phone, I miss the call =
Stripped black 'n' white interior...HOW CUTE IS THAT!!! love love it!
...I want more now =X

Chapstick Haul/Review

A little overboard on chapstick purchasing =X
C.O. Bigelow Metha Lip Shine (Bath & Body Works) ●●●●●/5
Tinted and clear, I love them all. The tinted ones are super sheer, so it's almost clear. I'm not sure about the darker colors because I don't own any of them. Anyways, BEST LIPGLOSS EVER. Try them!!!! They are slightly sticky but has that mentha taste and feel so it tingles your lips and super glossy. GREAT!

C.O. Bigelow Lip Formula SPF 15 ●●●●●/5
This doesn't have the Metha feel/taste, but its still good! Something different. Almond taste/flavor. Super glossy.

C.O. Bigelow Metha Lip Buffer (Bath & Body Works) ●●●●/5
My first lip scrub/buffer to get rid of dead skin on your lips causing dry lips. So far I'm not sure it is working, but it sure does feel good. I need to use it a few more times before I give it a 5.

Chap Stick Medicated ●○○○○/5
It was $0.99. It's OKAY. Not great. I wouldn't buy it again.

Carmex Mint Click Stick SPF 30 ○○○○○/5
No like. Period. Doesn't do anything for my lips.

Blistex Lip Infusion Smoothing Splash Medicated ○○○○○/5
SUCKS! It is weird. It comes out from a ball and it is liquid. So, no doesn't do anything for my dry lips.

Blistex Lip Medex (Blue Jar) ●●●●●/5
I've been using this for many years. It stinks so not everyone likes it, but it doesn't bother me. It is a jar so you gotta use your fingers. But, this works for the most part, and I always have a back up =]

Blistex Medicated Mint SPF 15 (Green Tube) ●●○○○/5
I like the mint, but it is okay. Inexpensive and kind of works. Plus, it has sunscreen! Your standard chapstick.

Nivea A Kiss of Moisture Essential Lip Care ●●●●○/5
I just bought this from Ulta. It is OKAY. It reminds me of Blistex Complete Moisture. I think it is good at keeping your lips mositurized, but it doesn't help heal chapped lips. It is a lipstick type casing, so you pull off the top and turn it up/down. For almost $3, I'd rather buy Blistex. I might try the baby blue case one with SPF next time, but I wouldn't buy this one again.

Still on the search for a *GREAT* chapstick!

Season Premieres

I am a total TV-HOLIC. My list of shows that I am addicted to is endless. So far, the Season Premieres were good.

First, my most anticipated and totally addicting...
Gosh, it was SOOOOO good! Even though I knew Sarah was alive and all, I still got goosebumps when she and Michael reunited. I wonder what other twists and turns are gonna come up. This season is gonna be GGGOOOOOOooOOoD! And, WENTWORTH MILLER is H-O-T! (even if the rumors are true =X)

Now, Mondays 9pm Fox

I liked the first season, but the season finale wasn't that great to me. So, I didn't really anticipate this second season. It was okay. I still watch it because of the fashion. I love Blair's character and outfits! Totally unaffordable for me, but a girl can dream =]

Now, Mondays 8pm CW

BEVERLY HILLS 90210 (Spin Off)
the old

the new

I didn't really wanna watch it or was a super big fan, but it was on, so I decided to catch it and see how it is. It's ALRIGHT; alot better than I thought it would be. Lots of drama and relationship circles. The actors are okay. None are my fav yet.

Now, Tuesdays 8pm CW

More to come! House, 24, Samantha Who?...and more.
