Stop Straps in Their Tracks

scored this set on sale at Urban Outfitters for $12!
As you may have seen from previous posts, I am obsessed with lingerie/underwear/pajamas/all of the above. Having previously worked in this sector of retail, I know a thing or two about sizing, which bra straps are better for certain tops, etc. Sure, you I may want to buy that Stella McCartney lacy beauty on sale on Net-A-Porter in a cup size too small just to own a bit of luxury, but a too tight bra is a sacrifice that just can't be made. In case you're still confused about bra fits, Alight and Gherhich&Co. illustrated a handy guide to finding the right bra for any occasion.

Reviewing Beauty

"You smell great!" is always a compliment you want to hear and that's what Randi Shinder and Jane Daly, creators of i smell great, strive for. 

Randi Shinder, creator of CLEAN Perfume, is back to conquer the fragrance world one scent at a time with her new project, i smell great. Shinder, a pioneer in the beauty industry, is launching the first ever product line that extracts scent molecules directly from the things women love most. The collection uses true extraction and scent sphere technology to recreate long-lasting, sophisticated perfumes.

“I was looking for a product that did what it promised,” said Randi Shinder. “I took some time after my last successful acquisition to analyze the market place and found there are a lot of likeminded women out there. What was born is a brand that embodies greatness -- i smell great.”

The line features a range of hair fragrances, eau de parfums, wellness water mists, soft body whips, and reactive lush lip hydrations and is offered in four intoxicating selections: Angel Cake, Beach Babe, Candy Crush, and Wild Honey.
