My Fall Fragrance Additions ($25 or less!)

Fall Fragrances by Distillery General, Otremier and Elizabeth & James

Although I’ve been a fragrance fan for years, I only really wore them when I was going out for an event or a date, or maybe to church. But now, I’m a fan of a daily fragrance. The first two fragrances came from my new favorite store, Anthropologie!

Eau de Toilette Vanille (1.6 oz, $18) is a pure vanilla scent that I wear non-stop. It’s like warm vanilla on a Fall day. It’s not overwhelming or super sweet.

Distillery General Eau De Parfum in Strawberry Vine is to die for.
The second is called Strawberry Vine (1.7 oz, $25) , and it’s described as “a charming fusion of red fruits, nutty essences and soothing amber vanilla”. No wonder I liked it so much! Go Be Lovely Rollerball in Coconut Mango is my next bet!

The third is a rollerball from Elizabeth and James (.34 oz/ $22) . I love warm, spicy scents, so this one didn’t dissapoint! I’d been spying this one for a couple months, and I finally added it to my dream team. It’s described as “an addictive blend of alluring violet, sensual sandalwood, and rich vanilla that strike the perfect balance between masculine and feminine”.

Here are a few of my favorites:

Beauty + Tech: Sephora App for Iphone!

Ever since my switch to Iphone a few weeks ago, I’ve been living in mobile bliss. I miss the organization of the blackberry and the keyboard of my Droid, but nothing still compares to the Iphone. I finally have access to all of those apps that were exclusive to Apple. Sephora To Go is one of my favorites!!

The entire app lets you search by brand, and add products to your wish list or your shopping cart. You can also scan items while at home or in-store to save to your app. Can’t remember which moisturizer you bought or which color foundation you got last time? Just check your recent purchases. I love it.
