Shalimar Parfum Initial

I’ve been recently watching a British documentary on BBC Four called perfume where I became obsessed with Shalimar perfume by Guerlain. It seems that Guerlain prides itself to be a proper perfume house as oppose to “btw I aslo have a perfume” category which is quite intriguing. Beacuse all I’m thinking is quality and timeless classic. I’ve also learned about Thierry Wasser who created the new version of Shalimar simply called: Shalimar Parfum Initial and the creative process.

Shalimar Parfum Initial was developed by Guerlain house perfumer Thierry Wasser, reportedly at the request of his niece.

“It was a real challenge” describes Wasser “allowing the perfume to evolve in time, 85 years after its creation, without distorting it and retaining the alchemy that makes it so desirable. I had to lighten but not to disown the fragrance, transpose but not to betray it. Create the future while honoring the past.”

Pureology Perfect4Platinum

Loving the NEW Pureology Perfect 4 Platinum Strengthening System for High Lifted and Highlighted Hair. Much needed for my super blond highlighted hair. Main magic ingredient is keravis “nature’s most powerful anti-breakage hair fortifier” according to Pureology. It’s a “vegetable protein that replenishes and plumps keratin gaps to strengthen the hair.” Targeted to combat dry hair, increase shine and manageability for blonds with 4+ level of lift.

Hollywood Fashion Secrets Silicone CoverUps

Hollywood Fashion Secrets Silicone CoverUps are my best friend when in need to wear my off shoulder shirts, strapless tops, or fancy sheer dresses to cover up how to say this lightly…”perky nipples” or to “de-perkify” and to go somewhat braless. Does this sound familiar. I know, it happens to the best of us. The big plus is that it covers and feels like second skin and is highly re-usable so great money saver. I like:)
