How to: Make Your Perfume Last Longer – Vaseline

Hi guys!

Today I have an easy makeup tip/trick for you guys on how to make your perfume last longer!


Steps & Materials Below!


Featuring: Debra Lynn Meija

Hello everyone!

Today I’ve got a post featuring another ETSY shop: Debra Lynn Meija! She is a fellow blogger who also specialises in illustration and design – her ETSY shop is full of gift tags, post cards and paintings! I personally think they’re adorable and she is very talented, her work shows precision and is of high quality. Here are some works by her which are my favs (you can click on the title of each piece for a direct link to it in her shop):

Okay, so how cute is this post card? I just love the overall colour scheme and the perfume is amazing (sadly I don’t own it, but I have smelt it before, not to mention the packaging is gorgeous!). This is perfect for sending a post card or a gift to someone – you also get 10 in a pack with complimentary “pink lemonade” envelopes and pink ribbons as seen in the picture. This one is definitely my number one pick!

Ever in a dilemma of how to present & wrap presents nicely? (Story of my life.) These gift tags are cute and affordable. I love the illustration of the posh lady and even more so the birds eye view of a present behind her, which definitely accentuates the theme of the gift tags and just looks plain adorable.

Now onto the artworks:

I chose to feature this artwork (as well as the others) as they all would be perfect for decorating your vanity corner or even your room. I love the vibrant, eye-catching colours in this painting and definitely think it would add a little spice to your otherwise empty walled room.

This one would probably have to be my second favourite piece from Debra, as I am a nail fanatic – I absolutely love doing my nails and trying all the cool nail art out there (anyone else?). This work would look gorgeous above your nail polish cabinet/shelf (if you have one) or just anywhere around your room. I love how it has a variety of nail polish colours and just makes it fun to look at. These also are available separately, for example if you just wanted a painting of the red nail polish, it’s available in her store.

Lastly, a piece which truly show cases your love for makeup, especially lip sticks! This piece is cute and quirky, once again perfect for your vanity corner. I love the variety of colours depicted in the painting, which makes it aesthetic. These are also available in separate pieces.

If you’d like to purchase any of these of browse the rest of Debra’s wonderful work here are her links:

Also she has got an offer for the month of February, which offers free shipping to all US residents. The coupon code is: FREESHIP10.

Let me know which piece was your favourite!

My Perfume Samples

Hey everyone!

So My Perfume Samples reached out to me and asked if I’d like to review some of their products. I researched their company and found their concept really intriguing and cool. Basically, they offer perfume samples (duh) of high end perfumes or just regular ones at a low price (starting from $0.49). This concept is consumer friendly as it allows you to try out the scent first before purchasing the full bottle (how many of you have bought a perfume and disliked the scent!) – the sizes you can order vary from: 1mL, 3mL and 5mL, which are not to mention a perfect travel size. Although I don’t recommend purchasing the 1mL one as it does not come with a pump. They sent me five different scents as shown in the pictures below:

As seen in the picture, Rise and Coach Poppy are 3mL samples, Endless Euphoria and Miss Dior are 5mL samples and Dolce is the 1mL sample (the one in the middle).

Endless Euphoria by Calvin Klein. This scent is not too sweet and is perfect for everyday wear.

2015-02-19 15.25.41

Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet by Christian Dior. Has a subtle, floral scent which is not overpowering at all.

2015-02-19 15.26.36

Rise by Beyonce. Has a sophisticated, light smell (not too sure how to explain it).

2015-02-19 15.26.49

Coach Poppy Wildflower by Coach. Has a more girly, sweet smell.

2015-02-19 15.27.03

Dolce by Dolce & Gabanna. This one has a subtle scent which is pleasant for everyday wear.

Our goal is to provide customers with an easy alternative to blind buying a full bottle of perfume, while being able to purchase multiple samples at a low cost. Department stores don’t give out free samples like they used to, and limit customers to how many they can take home at one time. This is an easy, hassle-free alternative to receiving samples from a department store. Once customers have chosen a sample that they like, they then have the option to buy the full size bottle. Finding a perfect fragrance that describes yourself and your style can be hard for some people. This is an easy and fun way to try before you buy.

Check out My Perfume Samples at:

Overall, my favourite scent would have to be Endless Euphoria as it’s not too overpowering, but still makes you smell amazing. My least favourite would have to be Coach Poppy for the exact opposite reason – I found it to be too overpowering.

What are your favourite perfume scents? I’d love to know. My current favourites are Lady GaGa’s Fame perfume and Mariah Carey’s M.
