‘Tis the season for a warm and sweet gourmand! I was thrilled when Lancome sent me their warm and sweet fragrance, Lancome La Vie est Belle edp. This cozy, floral gourmand fragrance is perfect for cooler temperatures, and the limited edition bottle is fabulous eye candy. Love!

For the holiday 2020 season, Lancome designed a sparkling bottle for their classic La Vie est Belle eau de parfum. The bottle has a sparkling little ribbon on its’ neck, and an ombre, silver glitter finish starting at the base, and thinning towards the middle. It’s festive, pretty, and wintery. This will be a beautiful bottle to keep on the counter, as well as give as a holiday gift to the fragrance fan on your list!

If you are a gourmand fan like me, you will love the heart notes of delicate Iris, tasty spun sugar, and warm vanilla. When you first spray Lancome La Vie est Belle edp on your wrist, the Iris scent will instantly capture you. Roughly five minutes into settling on your skin, a slightly spicy, and very warm scent takes over which balances out the Iris. You can detect the vanilla and sugar wrapped around the soft Iris scent. It’s pretty, warm, and ideal for cooler temperatures. This is definitely a warm and comforting scent for the late fall, winter, and early spring months. Loving it!

Lancome’s holiday 2020 beauty collection is selling fast. If you love gourmands, or have a gourmand fan on your holiday list, I highly recommend shopping early, and snapping up a bottle of this limited edition of Lancome’s La Vie est Belle edp now.

Pureology hair care review

pureology professional hair care review

Pureology Professional hair care products from left: all products c/o Pureology: Hydrate Shampoo / Hydrate Conditioner / Refresh & Go Dry Shampoo / Texture Finishing Spray / Hydrate Soft /

OK, raise your hand if your hair is crazy-dry this year! My hand is waaaaaay up! If you are like me this year, you are spending the majority of your time outside. Since pretty much everything indoors is closed, with the exception of supermarkets and some stores, we have all been outside in the sun, at the pool, and at the beach. This has wreaked havoc on my hair; not to mention I have not been able to get my hair trimmed since March due to all of our salons being shut down. My hair is so dry, and in need of a haircut. Thankfully the Pureology products are saving me!

I was thrilled when Pureology sent me a PR package filled with their hair care products. I quickly found the purple bottle, the Hydrate collection, was the ideal line for my dry hair. I have been outside a lot, plus swimming in the pool more than usual. This has caused my untrimmed ends to become very dry, and close to getting brittle. I am loving the Pureology Hydrate collection because it has restored hydration to my ends, and my hair in general. While it cannot trim my hair for me, it does keep it healthy. Which is what we all need right now anyway!

I love that Pureology was created right here in California. Yay local!! In addition to being local, Pureology offers sulfate-free and vegan products which are professional quality. Salons always have the best products, and even though we cannot go to them right now, it is nice to be able to get that professional, salon quality hair care right at home. Love this!

Pureology is not only sulfate-free, and vegan, their products are made without parabens and mineral oil. This helps keep their products safer for the environment and for us, the users. Love! Plus, yes there is more, the packaging is made from 95% post consumer recycled plastic and is 100% recyclable. Love that!

OK, let me swing back around to how it hydrates my hair. Once a week I love to use the Pureology Hydrate Soft treatment. I am using this treatment after I shampoo and conditioner my hair. It really makes my hair healthy and hydrated by using key ingredients such as shea butter and sweet almond oil. It smells so good! I am addicted to this product!

On days when I don’t wash my hair, I can easily refresh it with the Pureology Refresh & Go dry shampoo. This dry shampoo works really well and doesn’t leave any white residue. It’s really awesome!

If you are not looking for hydration like me, Pureology also has a fabulous collection of strengthening and volume hair care products. I will include them in the shopping widget below. You can click on each one for more information.

I am in love with this hair care collection by Pureology! I hope you find you love it too.

Chanel Melody nail polish summer 2020 review

How fabulous is this blue nail polish for summer 2020? Love it! Turns out, Chanel Melody is a nail polish hue which is part of Chanel’s summer 2020 beauty collection. It was not available yet when I originally did my Chanel summer 2020 nail polish post, so I found out about it after the fact. It’s such a fabulous color, I guess it wanted to be fashionably late to the summer nail polish party; and make an entrance! haha

If you have been following my blog for awhile, you may have noticed how much I love blue. If you are new here, blue is my favorite color. In fact, any oceanic hue is on my favorite color list. With that knowledge, you must know this color is making me very happy!

Chanel Melody reminds me of water. It also reminds me of the sky. Two things in nature which offer beautiful blue hues. This is a fun color to add to your summer beauty collection and wear on days when you are hitting the beach, or the pool! I love it!

It’s a bright blue cream nail polish which offers a smooth application. I used one base coat, two coats of Chanel Melody nail polish, and one top coat. This polish goes on smoothly, leaving no streaks or clumps. It’s a really pretty color, and looks great once you are done with your nails!

If you are looking for a fabulous blue hue this summer, Chanel Melody is your blue! I’m excited to wear it on beach days, pool days, and anytime I want to feel or look like I am near water. Love it!

What do you think of Chanel Melody nail polish for summer 2020? Are you as excited about it as I am?

Thanks for stopping by!
