Perfume Used To Be A Man's World — But These Women Are Turning The Tide

Ask Mathilde Laurent, Cartier's in-house perfumer since 2005, her favorite thing about her job and she'll say something surprising: her office.The bright, white penthouse suite is perched high inside the Foundation Cartier, a contemporary art museum with giant windows that frame her view of the Montparnasse neighborhood in Paris, France, where she grew up. This is where she smells, thinks, mixes, and develops new scents, like Cartier's most recent perfume, Carat, a bright floral fragrance that ...

My guest today argues that this picture is altogether wrong, and lays out a different image of what it really means not only to be creative, but to become a successful creative, and achieve one’s aims.

Vibratex Rabbit Pearl Vibrator Review

Growing up, I was one of the majority of little girls who wants a cute little bunny of her own. The legendary Easter Bunny, the scrumptious chocolate bunny, the “Silly rabbit, Trix are for kids” bunny … they all filled my head with notions of bunny love and I mercilessly begged my parents for a warm fuzzy fur ball that I would name Gert. But it was not to be … my mother had a different pre-assembled excuse for each time I peered into her eyes, tugged on her skirt and gave my best poor puppy dog ...

Cetaphil Hydrating Eye Gel-Cream for Basic Days

Cetaphil Hydrating Eye Gel-Cream ($8) is a new eye cream formulated with Hyaluronic Acid to seal in moisture and and help to keep eyes hydrated for 24 hours. Taking into consideration Cetaphil’s stellar repetition it was absolutely a no brainer for me to purchase this without thought. I have drier eyes with some fine lines as well as puffiness. I rely on eye cream mostly to hydrate the area so my finer lines look less obvious. I have spent a lot of money on eye creams both budget friendly an...

My Love of Metallic Sparkly Eye Looks Was Inspired by Grunge, High School, and Days Gone By

Am I the only one that remembers one particular girl in high school that was perfect? She was the girl that you wanted to be just like? Popular, super pretty, smart. I had one of those girls in my life. Her name was Stacy and I swear I had a total girl crush on her. She had blonde curly hair that never showed signs of frizz and it was a mystery how she pulled that off. She was also really sweet, totally pretty, everything that everyone wants to be in high school. I also remember the day she com...

If you have never tried a pulsator, you must. So much better than a vibrator, so much more than a toy… a true sex machine. Just watch her in action! Now, I love my Stronic Zwei. She has spoiled me for all other toys so I wasn’t sure how I was going to feel about the Stronic Drei but for a good review...

Orange Really Is The New Black (& Here's How To Wear It)

We've had millennial pink, Gen Z yellow and tomato red — but it's orange, in a multitude of shades, that's becoming the color of the moment. Neon, salmon, peach, and earthy, muted tones were seen on the spring 2018 runways and continue to make appearances for fall.The extensive shade range of orange is what makes it such an interesting style statement for this season and the next, shares Hazel Catterall, head of womenswear buying at Harvey Nichols.

As such, I can’t be silent about the way she is being portrayed in the press in the wake of her death. She deserves better. This is how I remember Lyric.Lyric and I started as interns together in June of 2016. I was fresh out of college, unsure of who I was going to be. Lyric, on the other hand, knew e...

17 Non-Traditional Dresses For The Fashion-Forward Bride

Cultural traditions have a funny way of becoming widely adopted, without actually being understood. The idea of wearing a white wedding gown, for example, has only been around for about 160 years, when Queen Victoria opted for a cream lace look for her 1840 wedding. Before that, brides wore dresses that spanned across the entire color spectrum, mostly choosing from whatever was already hanging in their closet. And if you ask us, we prefer that approach a whole lot more.So, if you're not into th...

Aretha Franklin Was Calling For Diversity In Fashion In The '80s

On Thursday, Aretha Franklin passed away from pancreatic cancer at her home in Detroit. She was 76. The first woman to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame was not only a force musically during her six-decade career — she was a force in appearance, too. During the ‘60s and ‘70s, a time when girl groups and glitter reigned supreme, Franklin performed in slinky silhouettes often accompanied by fur or feathered accouterments. And while her hairstyles often changed to reflect the country...

Ok Google…

We bought a Google Home Smart speaker in May. It took me a while to be certain of that first sentence. Should I just call it Google Home? Do you need to clarify that it’s a Smart speaker? I’m not sure of the correct etiquette. Ok Google, what’s your name? “You can call me your Google Assistant”   Bit formal eh? From a gadget/techie viewpoint, Google Home is a pretty cool piece of kit. I’ll level with you though… I bought it primarily so we had a speaker to stream...

"Flannel Hair" Is the Coziest Fall Color Trend You Didn't See Coming

From your standard L.L. Bean button-up to trendy shirt dresses, flannel is a Fall mainstay. But the warm fabric is not reserved for fashion only. In the waning days of Summer, many celebrities are showing off what's to come via flannel-colored hair. The subdued, slightly burnt copper shade looks all kinds of cozy, and it's a great gateway look to try before going all-out Winter wonderland with mulled wine hair. Related: ...

Evolved Wild Orchid Vibrator Review

I’ll be honest, I’ve never been a huge fan of the rabbit-style vibes. They’ve always felt bulky, bottom heavy, noisy, and a little awkward. So when I unwrapped this toy I was more than a little skeptical. The Wild Orchid by Evolved is an insertable toy with an attached clit simulator. And that’s about where the comparison to a rabbit-style vibe ends. Like most top-shelf toys today, this one is smooth silicone, has simple push-button controls, is rechargeable, quiet, and waterproof. It’s got ever...

Jimmyjane’s Form 3 Vibrator Review

Over the years of reviewing sexytime toys for the Toy With Mes, I’ve come across quite a few of them. So you might call me something of an expert. Since there are so many toys, and only so many ways one might use them, one of my challenges is figuring out what differentiates one toy from the next because seriously? There’s only so many ways to honk your hooter and after a while these things all start looking alike to me, no matter how innovative they may be. One thing I’ve learned by doing this ...
