Perfume Junkie...Marc Jacobs Daisy, Kim Kardashian, Viktor & Rolf Eau Mega, Jean Paul Gaultier

I confess, I am perfume junkie! I try new fragrances all the time because I have such a sensitive nose. It really sucks! Most perfumes give me a headache, so I'm always on the quest for the perfect perfume that won't upset my allergies. Recently, I picked up 3 new samples, Viktor & Rolf Eau Mega, Marc Jacobs Daisy and Jean Paul Gaultier Classique. Thus far, I'm really loving the Marc Jacobs Daisy. Jasmine, gardenia and violet are the staples of the fragrance. Together they create a clean, light, and fresh aroma. Check it out and let me know what you think. I'm still on the hunt for my "signature frangrance," what's yours?

Almost forgot, I picked up Kim Kardashian as well-it's got a nice sorta spicey scent, very sexy.

Happy Labor Day! Put Up Your Whites...or Not...

This photo appeared in one of the popular fashion mags that shall remain nameless...smashing Beyonce for wearing white after Labor Day. I must admit, I follow this rule for some weird reason or another. But then again, I do live in St. Louis :( Personally, I don't think it applies to warmer climate areas. What do you Belles think? Anywho, gonna give my white skinny's one last go-around until next year (and try not to get any BBQ sauce on 'em). Have a fabulous Labor Day! Smooches!
P.S. How HOT is Beyonce!!!
