As humans we are really endowed with senses that we should use to our advantage. The sense of smell in particular is very important, for me anyway since I adore scents! Youíll probably say thatís typical in a woman. Well scents add spice to life. Just imagine what life would be like if we cannot distinguish the different aromas wafting in the air. And it would be a great loss if we canít experience a perfume like this Jíadore Eau de Parfum from Dior, a perfume thatís truly an embodiment of pure femininity. Its scent exudes fruity and floral boquet that will make you think of magnificent and mysterious things.

Nicole Kidman always looks stunning on the red carpet ... her gowns are trendy, classy and top notch!
She could never be in a Fashion Disaster post! Never!
Nicole Kidman wore something quiet different on the red carpet of the Australian premiere of "The Golden Compass" ... She chose a suit, a silver suit!
From far, the suit looks like a big piece of tin foil! Don't you think so?
But really, Nicole's got everything in perfect place and always looks chic.
What do you think of her silver suit? Love it or Hate it?
Iíve been looking for a new wallet for quite some time now but I just canít seem to find the right one. I want something thatís spacious enough to hold bills, coins as well as cards. And of course it should be stylishly done without being flamboyant. Usually I like my things to be stylish yet in a subdued manner. Do you think this Patchwork Eugenie from Marc Jacobs Collection fits the bill? I like its texture on the outside especially the embossed patchwork pattern. Itís soft to the touch because the material that makes it up is shiny, grained leather.
Iím beginning to be really great admirer of Carrie Underwood! Not only does she have a talent in singing, she also has a great taste in fashion! I say so because in several events that sheís been seen she always seems to outshine others with the kind of outfits she wears. She usually favors the gold, and skin tone type of colors, which I think are quite becoming on her. But I must say that red is also her color. She looked great in this red dress that she was wearing at the ďMovies Rock 2007Ē event at the Kodak Theater Hollywood.
The brand Viktor & Rolf would never be associated with the ordinary. Nope, definitely not as evident in their design collections and fashion shows. The Viktor & Rolf characteristics when combined with another excellent product will certainly be a winner. Famed French champagne brand Piper-Heidsieck seems to think so too when they asked the designing duo to make a unique design for the limited edition of Rose Sauvage. Viktor and Rolf did not disappoint because the resulting product is something that you canít ignore! If you havenít seen champagne with an inverted design, now you can with the limited edition Piper-Heidsieck Rose Sauvage.
It's the holiday season and we love to dress up for it.
Red sweaters, mistletoe earrings, red & green checkered skirt, dark green knitted jacket ...
But Katie Holmes decided to wear red skinny jeans for the occasion.
Katie was out gift shopping in L.A. and was spotted wearing the red jeans paired up with a grey turtle-neck and black knitted jacket.
What do you think of this look? Do you love it or hate it?
Would you wear red skinny jeans for Christmas? ... Hmm ... I would!
