If you are into Valentine’s Day chances are you don’t get up to the day’s activities without the perfect sexy scent. With that in mind, Maree, Felicia and I have selected two fragrances each, including budget friendly options, to share with you. Whatever your budget, there’s an option here for you because smelling sexy doesn’t have to cost a fortune.  6 Sexy Valentine’s Day Scents for Every Budget:

Maree’s Picks

Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir Cologne

Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir Cologne

Known for some of the most unique fragrance combinations, Jo Malone is always my go to for special occasions like Valentine’s Day.  The warm and rich notes of the Pomegranate Noir scent make it perfect for the winter time, while the spicy and intense ingredients make it incredibly alluring to wear.  There is not a day that goes by when wearing this that someone doesn’t stop me intrigued by the mixture and how it wears.  With top notes of raspberry, plum and pink pepper, the scent opens very sweet, but the base notes of patchouli and frankincense make it complex and extremely mysterious.  A dark bold lip and little black dress is the perfect complement.  Available at Nordstrom $60 – $115.00.

YSL Parisienne

YSL Parisienne


While most of my makeup colors tend to be the same (neutrals), I love a varied array of fragrance options.  Some sultry, some sweet, some feminine, and some masculine.  Since the previous fragrance was so rich and intriguing, this option is much more feminine and delicate.  Much more floral in its composition, it has a sweet dry down that wears incredibly well.  With notes of rose and blackberry, YSL Parisienne is the perfect scent for the woman who is ultra feminine.  A gorgeous fit and flare dress with lots of elegant detail and a soft makeup look is the a great match for a sophisticated valentine’s day look.  Available at Sephora: $39 –  $65.00.

Felicia’s Picks:

Oud Ispahan

Oud Ispahan


During  2013 I probably used this fragrance more than any other in my collection, it is that amazing.  Truth be told, I am down to only a spritz or two (gasp!). With notes of Labdanum, Indonesian Patchouli, Laotian Oud Essence, Turkish Rose and Sandalwood, Oud Ispahan is bold and intoxicating and never fails to  get complimented. It is a unisex oud that’s part of Christian Dior’s La Collection Privée. You can dress this up, down and sideways and still end the evening on a sexy note. Oud Ispahan $155,  Bergdorf Goodman 212 872 8980 

ESCADA Born in Paradise

Escada Born In Paradise

For me this has become an unlikely favorite…blame it on the Polar Vortex or the spicy notes in the base of the fragrance. I usually lean toward heavier, more masculine scents but something about this vibrant spring, almost summery scent captured me.  See my full review hereAvailable at Macys and Ulta: $59

Christene’s Picks:

The des Vignes

The des Vignes

Caudalie The des Vignes, the dusk fragrance, is the handy work of master perfumer Jaques Cavalier. It combines a few of my favorite scents: jasmine, neroli ginger and white musk. I find this fragrance sensual, alluring and seductive with a bit of mystery. It lingers on my skin and simply transforms into something more amazing with each hour that passes. The finish is that of powdery, gingery, musk. With this scent, you can head out to dinner in a t-shirt, tousled hair and a bright red lip and still be super sexy. Available at Nordstrom: $39.

Love 2 Love Jasmine + Sparkling Mimosa

Love 2 Love Collection

Valentine’s Day is all about love, so, a fragrance from the super budget friendly Love2Love collection is perfect! Love2Love ‘s Jasmine + Sparkling Mimosa is a part of a four part collection of fragrances where each scent consists of two dominant notes.  Jasmine + Sparkling Mimosa starts very fresh with notes of peony, raspberry and sparkling mimosa.  The middle of this fragrance has jasmine, sweet pea and honeysuckle. The sweet notes are anchored with musk and rosewood.  This Eau de Toilette wears for about 3 hours. I think Jasmine + Sparkling Mimosa is perfect for the young or young at heart. Pair this scent with a fun flirty dress, light makeup and a pretty pink pout. Available at select Walmart Stores: $9.98

I know it may seem a tad cliche to get the man or men in your life a fragrance for the holidays, but frankly we have to be around them and it’s always nicer if they smell amazing.  Rarely do men take the time to seek out the perfect fragrance or even one at all, so it is up to the ladies to help them out.  Dads, brothers, husbands, sons, friends – they may not initially think they want or even need a new scent, but wait until they start getting compliments from everyone they meet, soon are asking you for a second bottle.  That womanly intuition knows best! Here is a look at some great fragrance options for him:

L’homme By Yves Saint Laurent

ysl l'hommeOk full disclosure, I worked for YSL years ago and when this fragrance came out, it was an instant hit and frankly I fell in love with it immediately.  I was able to gift bottles of this to any and every man that I knew – and you know what?  It was ALWAYS a win.  Both from the man’s perspective AND from the woman’s perspective.  Not surprisingly, it has stayed on the Sephora best seller list for years and I definitely know why.  Slightly fresh initially, the bergamot, ginger and vetiver dry down to make this an intoxicating woody fragrance.  Available at Sephora for $62.00.

Bleu de Chanel

Bleu de ChanelIs there anything more classic than a Chanel fragrance? I think not.  For years, I was a fan of Chanel’s Platinum Egoiste for men until I smelled this new scent after it launched a few years ago.  A woody aromatic fragrance, it is most definitely for the man that prefers a clean, fresh scent that will stand the test of time.  Available at Sephora for $62.00

Bond. No. 9 I Love NY Fragrance

Bond No. 9 FragranceThe first appealing thing about this fragrance is the bottle itself.  Bond No. 9 is a quirky and uniquely individual brand, that half the fun of their scents is the packaging. This I Love NY bottle will surely catch your recipient’s attention and probably amuse him just to have on his vanity. But the scent is just as eclectic and modern, with notes of Ginger, Juniper Berry, Grapefruit Zest, Musk and Amber.  Available at Sephora for $175.00.

Aventus by Creed

Creed AventusThis was one of the fragrances I gave my husband when we first met, and I think to this day he claims it is one of his favorites of all time.  And with good reason – it is the epitome of a masculine and sophisticated fragrance.  There are those scents that just inherently smell like a man, that you want to spritz your pillow when they are gone just to keep the scent around, ya know?  (I know you guys do it too!)  This is THAT fragrance, and since Aventus is one of Creed’s top selling fragrances, clearly I am not alone in my sentiment.  Strong notes of black currant and Italian bergamot open  the fragrance, while patchouli, musk and oak moss bring the depth and richness that is so notable in this scent.  Available at Nordstrom for $165.00.

Jo Malone London Lime Basil and Mandarin Cologne

Jo Malone Lime Basil & Mandarin CologneInitially, you may look at my choice here and wonder why I picked a fragrance from a brand that is typically perceived as for women only.  I threw this particular scent in to let you in on the secret – Jo Malone makes many fragrances that are unisex, Lime Basil and Mandarin being one of the most popular ones.  What has always made Jo Malone fragrances so alluring is the different blend of ingredients that manage to make the colognes smell rich and robust without ever overpowering or heavy.  This particular scent is one of the signature ones from the brand and features a blend of lime, mandarin, pepper and white thyme for a classic effect.  Available at Nordstrom for $115.00.

Greg Lauren for Barneys

Greg Lauren for BarneysIf there is any family that knows fragrance, it would be the Laurens.  With their timeless Polo brands, they have defined classic and timeless when it comes to colognes.  So, it is no surprise that Greg Lauren would create a scent that is causing quite a stir in the industry.  Exclusive to Barneys, this unique fragrance combines Tonka beans, vanilla and marine notes for an irresistible scent that is both artistic and elegant.  Available at Barneys for $195.00.

Beauty products are the ultimate gifts to give (and to receive.) They can run the gamut and fit the likes of many different friends, no matter how discerning their tastes or niche their preferences.  I have pulled some of my favorite finds from around the web for a beauty gift guide those around you will surely remember.  And isn’t the best part — giving someone a gift that later becomes a favorite?  (I am so competitive…I want to win at the gift giving game.)

For the Gal Who Loves Nail Polish

Deborah Lippmann Big Bang Set

Deborah Lippmann’s Big Bang Nail Set – Deborah Lippmann is one of my personal favorites for the vibrancy and shade range of her polishes, not to mention their long wearability and ease of application.  And this set is the ultimate one to give (or receive)!  12 shades that vary from natural and subtle to bold and daring.  The only part of this gift left is to get the recipient to agree to let you use them!  Available at Sephora.com for $78.00.

For the Gal Who Loves a Fancy Candle

(but Can’t Commit to Just One Scent)

Diptyque Nordstrom exclusive candle setDiptyque Candle Set (set of 10) – Everyone loves a great candle, but Diptyque candles are the best of the best.  With amazing scents and long burn times, it’s safe to say this brand has a cult following.  What I like most about this gift is it can be given to just one special person, or broken up into 10 individual gifts for a bunch of friends or family.  And frankly noone will fault you if you keep just one for yourself.  Available at Nordstrom for $130.

For the gal who likes a more low maintenance routine

Fresh Sugar Lip set

Fresh Sugar Stars Mini Lip Collection – Not everyone may be into a full face, so an array of tinted lip balms (that truly are the best on the market) is just the answer!  With tinted balms, the problem is often that the colors are quite sheer so having different shades is often pointless as they all end up looking the same.  Not with these best selling balms from Fresh – they pigment is rich and vibrant, while delivering intense moisture and hydration for the lips all day.  Available at Fresh.com for $65.00.

For the gal who loves a Pinterest-worthy vanity

Anthropologie lipstick holderAnthropologie Vestige Lipstick Holder – Don’t your friends’ lipsticks deserve the very best?  Yes they do.  What better way to display one’s favorite daily lip shades than with this adorable holder?   Reds on one side, nudes on the other – perfect.  Available at Anthropologie for $28.00.

For the Gal Who Needs Fragrance Options

Jo Malone fragrance Set

Jo Malone London Cologne Collection – If she changes her makeup every single day, chances are she changes her fragrance to – and this Jo Malone London set is perfect for the friend that needs variety in her beauty life.  5 of their top selling fragrances housed in what may be the most elegant packaging possible for a multitude of scent combinations.  Wear them alone or layer – the possibilities are endless.  Available at Bergdorf Goodman for $100.

For the Gal Who Has Everything and Only the Best Will Do

Tom Ford Limited Edition Lip SetTom Ford Limited Edition 12 piece Lipstick set – Maybe she let you crash on her couch for a few months, or maybe she is having a particularly tough year, but I trust that receiving this Tom Ford lip set will most certainly brighten any beauty lover’s day.  With 20 shades that range from natural and nude, to deep and bold, this is the ultimate luxe set.  Available at Neiman Marcus for $588.00

For the Gal who Wants Super Soft Skin all Winter Long

Kiehl's Creme De Corps SetKiehl’s Creme de Corps Collection – Often when I find a product that I love more than life itself, I feel the need to share it with the world.  I have been using the Kiehl’s Creme de Corps lotion for years and am consistently amazed at how nourishing, rich and hydrating it is any season of the year.  Intense enough for the winter, but light enough for the summer, everyone should experience this gem.  And this set contains not only the cult classic body lotion, but the Creme de Corps Soy Milk & Honey Body Polish which banishes any dry skin forever.  In addition, the set contains the forever classic Ultimate Hand Salve, the #1 selling lip balm, sample of the Ultra Facial Cream and Powerful Strength Line Reducing Concentrate.  Available at Kiehls.com for $65.

TTBFaves: Every month, the ThisThatBeauty Girls (ChristeneMaree, and Felicia) share their favorite products from the previous month. Today I share my top picks from October…


Kiehl’s Super Multi-Corrective Cream

Why I love It:  Even though my skincare routine is 37,568 steps almost every night, I still gravitate towards products that do it all.  Products that target multiple skin issues, because on those nights when I just fall into bed exhausted, multipurpose items like this Kiehl’s Super Multi-Corrective Cream, make my abbreviated regimen extremely effective.  Designed to be an all purpose anti-aging moisturizer, I have been loving the light, almost weightless feeling  of this cream on my skin.

Kiehl's Super Multi corrective cream

Who it Might Work For and Why:  We all have anti-aging concerns, and sometimes pinpointing a product for each ailment (lines, loss of firmness, uneven skin tone) can be overwhelming, so using one that targets everything is effortless.  Great for those with little time each night to get the most out of their products, this powerful cream helps to lift, firm, sculpt and retexturize the skin over time.  And at a price point of $62.00, it is a crime NOT to try this (and then love it like I do).

Bottom line:  As a loyal customer of Kiehl’s for many years, the super multi-corrective cream truly shows the stellar quality and efficacy of this line.

Available at Kiehls.com for $62.00

Jo Malone Wild Bluebell CologneJo Malone Wild Bluebell Cologne

Why I love It:  While I know winter is coming and all the fragrances should be getting heavier and deeper, I couldn’t help but fall in love with this light floral fragrance.  I find that when I fall in love with a scent, time of year disappears and I just want to wear it all the time.  Case in point – this mesmerizing mixture of bluebells, lily of the valley and persimmon.

Who it Might Work For and Why:  I would say this fragrance is for those who prefer a floral base, but to be quite honest, I am not a floral note fan.  But surprisingly, this fresh scent won me over with its delicate and sweet mix that wore all day.  With a top note of bluebell, middle note of persimmon and a base note of white musk, this is a sweet floral scent with a surprisingly deep base that makes it perfect for any time of the year.

Bottom line:  Jo Malone fragrances are the epitome of elegant and the notes in each are pure and blend with each other, making it not only pleasant to wear but decadent and luxurious to use.

Available at Bloomingdales.com beginning at $60.00 for 30ml.


Neal’s Yard Remedies Beauty Sleep Concentrate

Why I love It:  I know you are looking at the name of this product with confusion and disbelief.  A beauty sleep concentrate?  Yes, my glam gals, yes.  And it is rockin’ my world.  As a new user of this organic brand based in the UK, I did a bit of research first on this product and saw that it has achieved cult status with fans of the line and beauty users in general.  With my curiosity piqued, I gave it a go and was instantly impressed by how it felt, the scent, the texture, and the way it made my skin feel.

Who it Might Work For and Why:  Formulated with ingredients to help support your skin’s natural night time regeneration, the Beauty Sleep Concentrate helps to fight signs of aging, hydrate and replenish the skin.  And with the blend of aromatherapy essential oils, it is extremely calming to use.  I woke up the next morning and my skin looked absolutely radiant and felt even better.

Bottom line:  This is a great product for those who seek out more natural and organic products to target their anti aging concerns, but can also please those who’s priority is not necessarily naturalness but more efficacy.

Available at Neal’s Yard Remedies website for $53.00.

The spring equinox has officially come and gone, signaling the official start of spring but not necessarily bringing the immediate warm weather.  But let’s look at the positive side, it gives us a little more time  to plan our spring makeup look.  Though it’s not necessary to completely revamp your beauty bag, it is fun to update the basics with some fresh new items from the current season.  Some of us may add a few more pieces than others because we just can’t help ourselves and we already admit that we are powerless over the beauty tractor beam that sucks us in with each new collection (Ok, that part was mostly about me.)  That being said, I have already compiled my shopping list of what needs to be added to my makeup bag for spring, and felt that I would share with all of you.  I know, I’m too kind.

1.  Estee Lauder Mad Men See Through Blush – If the gorgeous natural pink shade of this blush does not put you in the mood for spring, then the bright and 60’s inspired packaging is sure to.  Fun fact: the case and carton are actual replicas of designs from Estee Lauder’s 60’s era collections.  Perfect addition to an every day makeup look for creating that subtle flush on the cheeks.

2.  Jin Soon Choi Polish in Poppy Blue – One of the easiest ways to incorporate color into your beauty routine is with nail polish.  It can often be overwhelming to branch out to a bold lip or vibrant eye liner, so put that pop of color on your hands or toes.  And there is simply no better way to do so than with this bright blue.  I personally have already purchased this (and her entire spring 2013 collection for that matter….whoops) and can tell you that the wear of this polish certainly rivals the color payoff – both are amazing.

3.  Guerlain Terracotta Four Seasons Bronzer – Most of us have been hiding under layers of coats, hats and scarves for the past 4-6 months, so we are going to need a little help to fake it until we make it…..to the beach.  With the perfect gradation of 4 matte tones in each palette to help sculpt and reproduce the perfect tan all year round, this is an essential piece to add to any makeup collection.  Formulated in 6 shades to match every skin tone, swirl the colors together for an overall warmth or use each color individually to highlight and contour the face to achieve the look you want.

4.  Lancome Blush in Love in Pommettes d’ Amour – Now once your cheeks are perfectly sculpted and mimicking a recent jaunt to the south of France, a nice bright pink dusted right on the apples is the perfect piece de resistance.  Often a pop of color with subtle eyes and lips can be all you need to brighten up the face.

5.  Nars Light Reflecting Loose Powder – With each degree added to the temperature, so goes the need for powder over makeup.  April showers bring May flowers annnnnnd shiny foreheads.  But the dreaded flat matte look of years ago is no longer the challenge with such innovative products as this Nars powder.  Colorless and able to be used by any skin tone, this powder will help to set and prolong daily makeup wear, while the photochromic technology will adjust to light sources throughout the day to help achieve a flawless and smooth complexion.  Fancy.

6.  Cover FX SPF 30 Protection Primer – As the days become longer, so do our makeup demands.  The first step in a lasting face is often a primer, and the Cover FX’s new 30 protection primer helps to hydrate, smooth AND protect your face all day.   And with the added benefit of a sunscreen in the primer, this is the perfect product to take you through spring AND summer.

7.  Smashbox Love Me Palette in Admire Me – For those of us that still want to stay close to our neutral roots (raises hand), this eye palette is perfect for every day wear while the pale pink shades are a welcome change for spring from the basic beige.  Use this palette to create  a great day look with a simple wash of the paler shades and then keep with you amp up for evening by adding the deep brown and burgundy shades to the lash line for a smokier effect.

8.  Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids Lipcolor  in Pink Pop – What is spring without a bright lip option – amiright???  Wear it boldly by applying directly from the tube all over the lips, or use a dabbing motion to create a more sheer wash.

9.  Jo Malone Sugar and Spice Collection – No makeup look is complete with a great fragrance, and as the seasons change it is nice to play with a new scent.  Jo Malone’s new collection of 5 sweet and delectable scents, worn alone or layered together,  are inspired by pastries and desserts, and is the perfect way to welcome spring.

I spend most of my time at home either lounging, cooking or entertaining. I also leap at the chance to do all three at once. Honestly. Having said that, if you, or anyone on your gift list is anything like me, here are a few items that make the cooking, lounging, entertaining, experience fun, easy and enjoyable.

Home Fragrance

Does your home have a signature scent? If not, it should. Scent is the strongest sense tied to memory and if you keep your home smelling amazing when times are great and you are having fun, walking in after a long, stressful day and getting a whiff of home can immediately change your mood.


Nest Bamboo 3-Wick Tin Candle

“Nest Bamboo 3-Wick Tin Candle has notes of white florals, sparkling citrus, and fresh green accords. Note that this oversized tin has 30% more wax than the standard sized candle from Nest Fragrances and with three wicks it can easily fill a room with fragrance.” This candle burns for about 36 hours and has a cotton wick.

Tay Nota Bene Pure Soy Candle

“Tay’s pure soy candle is infused with narcisse blanc, calabrian bergamot, oak moss and delicate pieces of cedar.” This candle burns beautifully and can last for more than 60 hours.

Jo Malone Diffuser

“Luxuriously scented with a voluptuous blend of seven of the world’s most exquisite roses, Jo Malone London’s convenient reed diffusers emanate the unfolding scent of a bouquet of freshly cut flowers, perfect for any room.” This diffuser is perfect for any room. The design is sleek and sophisticated and the gentle aroma is sure to be noticed by anyone who enters your home.

Joya Candles

“Joya is so named for the unique, crystalline natural wax blend used for the brand’s premier candle collection.”  Known for collaborations with lifestyle and grooming brands such as Ralph Lauren, Neiman Marcus, Procter & Gamble and Urban Outfitters,  Joya candles are unusual, expertly crafted and exceptionally packaged. There is always something new and wonderful to discover.


Calphalon Contemporary Nonstick 13 Deep Skillet

I have two versions of this Calphalon pan and I use one of them almost everytime I cook. This pan is perfect for quick one pot meals and would be a perfect gift for the “newbie chef.”

Cuisinart SmartStick Immersion Hand Mixer

During winter months I love to make soups such as split pea and creamy butternut squash. My immersion hand mixers gives my soups a great texture. The whisking attachment makes whipping up fresh cream a breeze! This is erfect gift for a seasoned cook looking to expand their range.

OXO Stainless Steel Mandoline

I don’t have this exact version but I say all the time that my mandoline is my favorite tool in the kitchen. It is a huge time saver. This OXO Mandoline “double slicing blade combines straight and serrated edges for different foods; crinkle/waffle blade cuts traditional and wide crinkles. Also features julienne and french fry cuts.” The possibilities are endless. Perfect for parents who want fun and easy ways to get kids to eat more fruit and vegetables.

Prodyne Chrome Wine Botte Pourer and Stopper Combination, Set of 2

When hanging with a few friends it is easy to go through an entire bottle of wine in one sitting. However, if you like to have a glass of wine each evening chances are you won’t get through the bottle before the taste of your wine changes for the worse. Try these “ingenious leak proof bottle pourers that include air tight bottle stoppers which fit right into them for the ultimate convenience.”

Stainless-Steel Bar Tools Set with Stand

I have had my Cocktail Shaker and Bar Tools Set since college and it still gets plenty of use today. It makes me look like I know what I’m doing, even when I’m pulling a cocktail recipe out of thin air. Pair with a cocktail shaker and coctail mixes for a perfect gift. If you are an extra awesome freind you might also consider including the booze.

Formaggio Cheese Board Set

All parties are better when there is a good cheese plate. Agree? I came across this beauty in Target and thought it was genius! I currently use a regular board and serve cheese on a plate but why not cut and serve on the same surface? I have added this item to my wish list.
