Escada Fiesta Carioca eau de toilette

escada fiesta carioca eau de toillette review

Pictured: fragrance c/o Escada . Escada Fiesta Carioca eau de toilette limited edition perfume celebrating 25 years of summer editions.

Every summer, for the past 25 years, Escada has released a fabulous summer fragrance which celebrates the Joie de Vivre of the summer season.  This year’s fruity floral by Escada celebrates everything fabulous about summer, and it will make you feel like dancing with a flower in your hair. Love!

Escada Fiesta Carioca EDT starts off with a sweet fruity scent. Below the fruity fragrance you will get wrapped up in a bouquet of warm florals which are fresh and crisp. The combination of Passion Fruit on top and Orange Flower in the heart of the fragrance is genius. It makes for an uplifting fragrance experience which will literally make you want to dance, and celebrate summer. The end of the fragrance experience offers a smooth woody base which balances out the fruity floral notes. Love!

Top notes: Passion Fruit, Red Raspberry, Violet Leaves

Middles notes: Passion Flower, Orange Flower, Jasmine

Base notes: Cedarwood, Musk

Escada Fiesta Carioca EDT is a beautiful fruity floral scent which is easy to wear in the evening, and on the weekends. This is also the perfect scent to wear while on vacation; or if you just feel like you want to pretend you are on vacation. It definitely evokes a feeling of being beach-side, surrounded by a soiree decorated with flowers, and serving fresh fruit. Whoo-hoo!

I am so sad this is a limited edition scent! When my bottle runs out, I think I will be lost. This is such a beautiful fragrance for summer; I cannot imagine wearing another scent. It captures the essence of the summer season and everything that makes the combination of vacation and warm weather fabulous.

You can find Escada Fiesta Carioca EDT online here. Remember, it is limited edition, so snap up your bottle quickly!


Green and blue for spring

One of the big color trends for the spring 2017 season is to wear green and blue together. I love how the two colors look with each other. Since green, blue, purple, and pink are my favorite colors, wearing any combination of them makes me happy!

I wore this outfit over the weekend to attend a fundraiser with a St. Patrick’s Day theme. Although this was perfect for the green-themed occasion, it is a dress I know I will find myself reaching for over and over again throughout spring; and this summer too! After all, “Greenery” is the color of the year! Therefore, all things green are fabulous! Love!

What do you think of green and blue together for the spring 2017 season? Is it a color trend you might find yourself wearing too?

Thanks for stopping by,

XOXO

Gucci Swan nail polish spring 2017 review

Gucci Swan nail polish for spring 2017

Gucci Swan is the hot new nail color from Gucci for the spring 2017 season. When I first spotted Swan by Gucci, I thought it was going to be a pale baby blue nail polish. Instead, it acts more like a nude with a blue-grey tinge. It is quite fabulous!

This is not an usual nail color. It is rather unusual. With the blue-grey tinge to a pale polish, this color plays well with spring’s color palette, making it both unique, and easy to wear. Love that!

I tested Gucci Swan nail polish for spring 2017 with one base coat, and two coats of colors. If you want more color saturation, you can apply three coats of color. The first coat looks sheer, it starts to show color in the second coat.

As with other nail polish colors by Gucci, Swan is long-lasting and chip resistant. This is always key when you live a busy lifestyle and don’t have time to constantly re-do your mani.

I’m looking forward to wearing Gucci Swan nail polish for spring 2017 both on my hands and on my feet. This will be a really pretty toe nail color in the summer months when feet start to tan, and toes are always being shown off in sandals. Instead of basic white or nude for toes, Gucci Swan nail polish will add a special and unique hue to feet. Love that!

What do you think of Gucci Swan nail polish for spring 2017? I am in love with this color and cannot wait to wear it more; especially on my toes as the spring weather warms up, and also as we move into the summer months.

This is a great nail color to own for the warm weather seasons. You can find Gucci Swan nail polish for spring 2017 online here.
