Scent Review: Anna Sui La Vie de Boheme

Hi Guys!
Today, I am doing my first ever review on fragrance.
I recently mentioned in my July favorites Anna Sui Perfume.
On one of my many trips to Sephora with one of my friend, I discovered La Vie de Boheme by Anna Sui. I smelt it and fell in love with it and ordered it online within couple of days. (I bought the biggest one by the way)

I think the bottle looks absolutely adorable !
The bottle is flower design with the butterfly design cap.

It smells very warm and sweet to me. I am very bad at describing scent so that is all the description you will get from me. However, I really really love it and can't stop wearing it!

Note and Style described from Sephora:
Turkish Rose, Pear, Red Berries, Dragon Fruit, Magnolia, Peony, Freesia, White Wood, Skin Musk, Red Raspberries, Vanilla, Sandalwood Accord. 
Mysterious. Sultry. Confident

You can buy the perfume here
It is retails for: 
$46 for 1 oz 
$65 for 1.7oz
$78 for 2.6 oz 
and I don't think a roller ball is available for this fragrance. 

Have you guys seen this perfume? What do you think about it? Love it, hate it, want to check it out? Please leave me your thoughts on the comment! 

Daily Bits: 

  • I painted my nails with the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel nail polish in #270 Street Flair today. I hope it actually lasts for long time. 
  • I was pretty surprised by the lasting power of the One Direction nail polish (check out my review on the One Direction Makeup). It lasted four days with almost no chipping and my nails chip within one day ! The only thing is I am not sure if it lasted because the One Direction nail polish has amzaing formula or if it was because of the Julie G's JetSet top coat (my first time trying it). I'll have to let you guys know. 
  • I woke up with a cut on my finger! What did I do in my sleep? Such a mystery

A Look At One Direction Makeup!

Hi, Guys !
So I posted about the launch of One Direction Makeup about a week or two ago (check it out here for more info).
And I received the makeup kit in "Up All Night" last Thursday.

So my final thoughts on the One Direction Makeup kit is that overall I don't like it.
The only thing I actually liked from the kit was the nail polish.
All the other products in the kit seem pretty useless to me.
And I felt like the kit itself felt very cheap to me.

I felt like this make up kit would only work for like tweens or young teenagers, just so they can play around with some make up.

Check out my video for swatches and more info:
