NARCISO: sensuality in a bottle

NARCISO EDP 2014 90 with pack CMYK A4 300dpi 785x523 NARCISO: sensuality in a bottle
As an admirer of the American fashion designer Narciso Rodriguez, I’m all ears when something fresh is buzzing via the press waves. His perfume, Narciso Rodriguez for her, is a fave of mine. For nearly ten years people often stop me on the street and ask, “What’s that fragrance,” clearly it’s evolved into my signature scent. With the debut of, NARCISO, a musky warm and sensual parfum, I am swooning, could it be his latest hit has caught my attention? Per the designer this fourth parfum concept is a shout out to Rodriguez’s namesake, “Narciso is such an uncommon name and one can’t help but think of the Greek myth of Narcissus.” Rodriguez hit the jackpot with NARCISO, the woody notes of vetiver united with gardenia and Bulgarian rose truly encapsulate womanliness. To its counterpart, Narciso Rodriguez for her, I admit the rose is a tad delicate and lighter on the nose. Is it premature to say I’m cheating on my unique scent? I confess I’ve begun layering the two, and the response from passersby is amazingly affirmative.

Ad wise Rodriguez left no stones unturned by using the Brazilian top model, Raquel Zimmermann, as the seductress who conveys this effortless glamour—she’s definitely not sore on the eyes. Playing part to the Narciso Rodriguez woman, Zimmermann characterizes joie de vivre and splendor. She mirrors images of the new-fangled container design that embodies this idea of romance and femaleness. “The stone-white color of the bottle was matched to a stone I found on the shore in Cypress on a visit to Aphrodite’s birthplace,” commented Rodriguez.

Thank you Mr. Rodriguez for making me feel like a lady each and every day. Is it valid to say I’m turning into the Narciso Queen?  Perhaps it’s a ménage à trois of the two, Narciso Rodriguez for her and NARCISO, sharing me to fashion my personal aroma.

Go ahead a see what’s in store for you. The NARCISO product range includes: eau de parfum spray (two sizes: $112/$95), scented body lotion ($54) and a musc oil parfum ($155), all sold exclusively at Bloomingdales.

Make Money by Sharing your Dresses with Borrowed By Design

Borrowed by Design Graphic poshglam Make Money by Sharing your Dresses with Borrowed By Design

Ladies, is there anything more annoying than having a special event to go to and finding yourself standing in front of your closet realizing you have absolutely nothing to wear? You’ve got a handful of your go-to dresses (which are all documented on Instagram and Facebook) or that bag full of bridesmaid dresses your friends promised you’d wear again, but you only wore once. Go even further back and you’ll probably find that old prom or homecoming dress that you’re not even sure why you still have. You want to look great, but do you really want to go out and buy a brand new dress you may only wear once or twice?

Speaking of all of those old dresses – what are you going to do with those things anyway? They’ve been in your closet collecting dust for months (years in some cases) and you’ve been meaning to do something with them, but they continue to hang in your closet, taking up space.

At Borrowed By Design, we’re setting out to turn two problems into a solution by connecting women who have dresses with those who need them. We’re doing this by creating an online platform for women to rent their formal and semi-formal wear to each other.

Shared fashion is huge right now and there are countless sites for women to buy and sell their clothing to each other, but why not borrow from another woman like you instead? You wouldn’t hesitate to borrow a dress from one of your girlfriends, so why not borrow a dress from our site that was posted by a woman who shares your same size and sense of style? Borrowing allows you to spend less and you’re not stuck with another dress you’ll only wear once. And for those women who rent their dresses out on our site, you’ll be able to make money off of your dresses time and time again!

Borrowed By Design is currently in the early startup stage – we’re just two best friends who are trying to take an idea we’re passionate about and make it into something that can help other women. This is why we’re reaching out to the smart, fashionable readers of POSHGLAM to help us make our dream into a reality. We are currently working to grow “The Closet,” which will contain all of the dresses that are available to borrow. If you’d like to list your dress on our site, all you have to do is visit our site and fill out a brief form.

Ladies of POSHGLAM, we’re asking you to send us your dresses and share this with your friends so we can grow “The Closet” and the Borrowed by Design community!

SK-II : A Perfect Pick for Fall

brightening derm moisturizer SK II : A Perfect Pick for Fall As a stay at home mom to a toddler boy plenty of life changes have transpired in my life since his birth. One in particular is my overall daily skin care regime. After three years of trying to combat the melasma that’s engulfed my forehead I’ve reduced my facial routine to monthly laser zappings and a wash of soap and water. Recently I met a mom in the park who had immaculate skin; she was glowing from head to toe. I asked her about her beauty secret, and she proclaimed, ‘Pitera’, an ingredient found in Saki. I said what is that? She gave me a sales pitch on SK-II, this infamous line created in Japan (the one youngling Kate Bosworth is the spokes model for). It’s supposedly annihilates Revive and La Mer. As a devotee of the aforementioned goods I decided to give SK-II a shot.

Days later I happen upon a beauty seat at Saks Fifth Avenue where I meet SK-II’s Brand Ambassador Cecilia Ho who schools me on this supersonic saki-in-a-bottle product. “Scientists deduced the key must lie in the fermentation liquid that the brewers’ hands were in during the sake fermentation process at the SK-II labs,” she states. Essentially their skin was flawless after hours of soaking in the rice water. Research was conducted using 350 strains of yeast and according to Ho a unique yeast strain that held the secret to impeccable skin was found; thus the launch of SK-II’s Pitera™ is full of vitamins, amino acids, minerals and organic acids that work together to allow the skin’s natural surface rejuvenation process to function at its prime.

As a novice to the line Ho recommends the Facial Treatment Essence, which contains a base of over 90 percent Pitera. It gently fixes lines and wrinkles and the overall skin surface renewal process. To loosen up the dead skin cells in order to work on highly pigmented areas the Brightening Derm Specialist is another high-quality starter. Ho claims this serum is a go-to for lessening brown spots and intense discoloration. And the final item to incorporate into the SK-II regime is the Facial Clear Lotion, which contains AHA to exfoliate dead skin cells. Ho adds, “Our SK-II philosophy is really to hydrate, and you can never go wrong with too much hydration.”

For anti-aging products Ho steers me towards the Signs Eye Mask which is packed with a punch of hydration and the Facial Treatment Mask, “It’ll deliver a powerful kick of concentrated Pitera within just one use,” exclaims Ho. The eye mask works to reduce crow’s feet and the intense dryness around the eye area. And just as Ho claimed the mask visibly reduced the look of fine lines and dullness in my skin and I felt revived and fresh within minutes.

After several weeks using SK-II am I sold? I would say I am quite satisfied, perhaps its beginners luck … stay tuned for a 6 week update.
