Summer Treats

Last week I decided to treat myself to some well-wanted items that I have had my eye on for quite some time. My Love Struck by Vera Wang was dwindling, so I picked up Reb'l fleur by miss Rihanna. I am in love love love with her perfume!!! I will even admit that this smells better that Heat by Beyonce. I got the 3.4oz for $59 from Macy's and also got a free black tank top with my purchase. Macy's website describes the fragrance as - Daring, sexy and truly memorable, Reb'l Fleur is the first fragrance from Rihanna. Plump fruits, red berries, plum and juicy, ripe peaches, make a delicious first impression, while sumptuous florals and warm base notes create an impression that is defiantly sexy. Experience this unforgettable scent with the Reb'l Fleur fragrance collection for women. She also has a new fragrance out in a red bottle, so stay tuned for my post on that.

Next up is the long awaited purchase of the Urban Decay Naked 2 eye shadow palette. I also bought this at Macy's, but it can be purchased at Sephora as well as online. I do not own the first naked palette, but Naked too is as amazing as the hype around it. I did a post about this months ago ( but never bought it. Thank God I finally got around to it because I love it. It comes with a double-sided brush and a UD Lip Junkie lip gloss. The palette is described by Urban Decay as -- The most anticipated sequel of the decade. Naked2 has 12 pigment-rich, taupe and greige neutral eyeshadows, including FIVE NEW shades. Our palette proves once again, neutral is anything but boring, (and is downright sexy when worn Naked). Feast your eyes on our shades ranging from pale to deep, matte to sparkly. This collection lets you achieve lots of neutral looks, smoky dramatic eyes, and everything in between. Let's just say there's a whole new way to get Naked! The case has an art-school inspired look with hinged lid - taupe metal with embossed chocolate brown artwork. It's smooth, modern and cool to the touch - a real tactile experience. Plus, our palette also features a travel-size Lip Junkie Lipgloss in Naked, AND a double-ended, cruelty-free Good Karma Shadow/Crease Brush (available only in this palette). Any self-respecting makeup lover will have to have both palettes to get their complete neutral fix!

I am a huge supporter of treating yourself with whatever you want, just because you want it. My philosophy is: if someone ever asks you to "borrow" money and you have it to "lend" to them, spend it on yourself first. I had to learn that the hard way. Any way, I am in love with my new purchases. The scent of Reb'l is everything it says it is -- sexy and daring like a real hott stepper!!! And Naked too was worth every penny and I know it's going to last me forever.
