Which Fragrance Scent Suits You and Your Style?

The scent you wear says something about you.

The Flower Girl
If you are ladylike and love to wear pastels, whimsical bows and flower dresses then delicate floral sent is the best for you (such as gardenia, goddess rose, peony notes).

The Fruit Girl
You are sporty, comfy casual and love light sent, freshness and simplicity then go for pink grapefruit, tangerine and orange blends.

Scent Suits You
The Classic
You are elegant and love impeccably tailored looks. Surround yourself with a well-rounded, luxurious and rich as opulent violet, iris, woods and soft leathers sent.

The Sexy and Glamorous
You like bright hues, luxurious textures and furs, Old-Hollywood wavy hair. Choose more lush and opaque scents as Orientals (vanilla, patchouli).

The Edgy Modern
If you like sleek looks and architectural lines look for dark citrus, sharp jasmine, vetiver and bergamot scented perfumes.

When transitioning your wardrobe from one season to another, remember to accessorize with new fragrance too. Finding the fragrance you like takes time.
  • When choosing new sent for yourself have in your pocket a coffee bean, after sniffing a set of three perfumes give yourself a couple-minute rest, smell a coffee bean, then go for more. It will help you to really capture the true essence of each perfume.
  • Apply perfume to pulse points (neck and wrist). The elevated temperature helps release the scent.

Cape Cod Jewelry

Cape Cod is an arm-shaped peninsula located in the state of Massachusetts well known by its beauty of nature, historical integrity and its diversity of art.  I am jewelry collector, when I first came to this unique place I wandered old town streets looking for individual artist studios and boutique shops to find popular Cape Cod jewelry

I traveled through Lower Cape, the section which includes the coastal towns of Brewster, Chatham, Harwich, and Orleans. In local craft shows I discovered inspiring jewelry artists making all kind of adornments: bracelets, necklaces, earrings, rings and much more. Popular Cape Cod jewelry thyme: corals, sea shells, seahorses, starfish and all sea creatures. Jewelry is exquisitely beautiful, crafted from carefully chosen stones nestled in settings of polished silver. Everything is made by hand, has a perfect balance between shapes and colors, and has feel of water, sun and wind. 

Local jewelry artist find inspiration in every part of this wonderful place, all summer-long they spending as much time as possible out in the elements, loving life on the beaches and the ocean, gathering wide variety of shells, pretty stones, and beach glass. In popular Cape Cod jewelry you can find the spirit of nature expressed with sandy colors of beach, cool blues and greens of ocean, light purple of shells and nautical blue and yellow.

I’ve been influenced by my bohemian upbringing: Ethereal and artistic. To me, luxury is having something different from someone else, not something you see hundreds of, and in materials that are of the highest quality. Recently I discovered famous local designer seed bead jewelry which is very unique with the colors, textures, and patterns. When I noticed stylish scrimshaw nautically inspired bracelets in her collection, I fell in love right away with it. The look is bold but with feminine feel, the neutral colors: muted gray, light salmon, sea green, cream and touch of black makes for a great Cape Cod everyday bracelet, and locals favorite.  

I noticed popularity in unique artsy jewelry shops when I traveled through the Outer Cape - towns of Eastham, Wellfleet, Truro and Provincetown. Those places have emerged as the Cape’s art centers with many fine art galleries, artist studios and beautiful harbors.  I went to local boutiques to look for Cape Cod jewelry and found customer most favorite very elegant sea glass dangling coral earrings that swing and sway with the easy rhythm of the summer season. I noticed women wearing it with jeans as well evening wardrobe.

After spending hours in charming shops I was seduced with stunning sea shell pendant. Jewelry designer combined texture and colors using seed beads to create luxurious and exotic ornament patterns. In pendant, which is in different shades of teal and peach, silver and black, she changed the seashells natural appearance in order to emphasize certain qualities, and interpreted nature by shaping and distorting whatever is necessary to communicate her meaning to the viewer. I was told; customers love these artist necklaces because it’s comfortable against the skin and colors of jewelry go well with Cape’s effortless look.

Every jewelry piece contains a story and memory of favorite places, and experiences. You can find Cape Cod jewelry store online, where you can find personalized sea glass jewelry, artsy, fashion jewelry, jewelry for mom and yourself.

Right Hair and Makeup Can Make a Big Difference

Right hair and makeup can make a big difference.

You don’t have to spend hours to look terrific. Read on for easy tried-and-tested tips that will take years off your look.
1.    Radiant skin. Use a luminizing primer, and stick to liquid or cream foundation, as powder can be drying (set with powder only when you are oily).
2.    Concealer is your friend. Use to conceal redness, and to highlight. Drew lines around lips, over cheek-bones, down the nose, and above the brow bones- then blend them in with a sponge. Use concealer as little as possible under your eyes, and gently work it down onto your cheeks. “It can be very aging if it sinks into wrinkles.”
3.    Cream blush adds dimension and instant glow. Use two different shades of blush and touch of shimmer on cheekbones.
4.    Applying shadow. Use a matte eye color shadows across the whole lid (avoid shimmer, which brings out texture like fine lines), apply a deep hue to the outer corner of the eye. A touch of glowing shadow on the center of your lid and inner corner will instantly brighten you eyes.
5.    Brows. Use a pencil in a tone slightly lighter than your hair color and blend well with a spool brush.
6.    Mascara. Look for one that separates and curls (thickening mascara can weigh down thin lashes and cause clumps). On your bottom fringe witch is thinner and more delicate than the top row standard brush can easily cause clumping, place a small amount of mascara on a tiny fan brush and comb it through the lower lashes.
7.    Lipstick that’s rosy or beigey is most flattering on everyone. Use a dull lip pencil to softly round the outer corners of the lips and soften the Cupid’s bow. A satin-finish lipstick will add moisture and give good coverage. To finish, pat a bit of pearly cream shadow in the center of the lips.
8.    Find your perfect red. If you have pale skin, try blue-based reds, and if you have olive or dark skin, orange-based reds usually look best. A satin, medium-tone red suits all skin.
9.    Gorgeous Hair Color. Never go too dark around the hairline. You need softness around your face or you’ll look severe. Don’t go too blonde (ask for both highlights and lowlights. The right highlights can light up your face.
10.    Don’t be impulsive when it comes to your hair. After chopping off all my hair and immediately regretting it, I learned the value of having a signature style. You can make subtle changes- moving your part from the middle to the side( it instantly ups the glam factor of any style), letting it grow past your shoulders, or adding fringe- but nothing so drastic that anyone would notice a big difference. It’s all about keeping it fresh.
