Spring Scent

Spring is coming and we need to prepare. We have to choose a new fragrance to feel the new season. I have a suggestion: Daisy by Marc Jacobs!

To celebrate the coming of spring and to share* my love for fragrance, particularly Daisy by Marc Jacobs, I made a party. The weather was perfect to have an outside party so I placed everything in the patio to get the party started.

I love to wear fragrance with flowers as the main ingredient and spring is the perfect time to wear those kind of notes in your perfume. If you are thinking of trying a new one for the upcoming season or can’t wait for it to arrive and want to try a new fragrance ASAP try Daisy by Marc Jacobs or Daisy Eau So Fresh you will love it as everyone at the party.
We had some fresh fruit and pink lemonade while “attempting” to make bracelets. We tried the fragrances and share some tips to wear it and talk about what we like about Daisy.
The first thing everyone notice is the shape of the bottle and then when trying it they loved the scent, the violet notes of this fragrance feels romantic, femenine, fresh and confident, you can feel like if you already are in spring with this light flowery scent.
My favorite tips to wear fragrance: spray the fragrance in front of you and walk through it so you get the scent all over, and spray a little in your hair so every time you move your hair you and everyone aro will notice the scent.

We had a really good time, but at first it was a little weird because the attendants, thought I was trying to sell them the fragrance and other beauty items. They were surprised by the kind of party we were having. When I told them the beads were there so we get to make bracelets they were a little hesitant but we did our best to accomplish the mission.
If you feel crafty you can try to make the Daisy bracelets, here is a link to see how to make it.

So now tell me what’s your favorite fragrance to wear on spring?
Do you like to try new scents?
How often do you change your fragrance?

Next time you go to the mall check Daisy you will be surprised.

I’m Back!

I have been so out of the blogosphere!

Hello there again! Because of many changes in my life this past year (2013), I have a new address! That’s nice right? Plus I have a day job that it’s really demanding (sad is not well $paid$), I like my job, it might be a boring office job but I like it.
And you know what else I like? Fashion and beauty of course!
My first New Year Resolution is to write more, no matter what. We all need a way to vent out and share our thoughts, since no body in my circle of friends likes fashion or beauty as much as I am (I believe my interest is above average) I need a way out for all my stylish thoughts. You all don’t know yet how much I love fashion and beauty and this year I will show you, so be prepared because I have a lot to share.

RED BRIDESMAID

I want to share with you that on December I was a bridesmaid, a friend from College got married and I got to wear a red dress, which is not my color of choice but I had to be there so, I put on a brave face and go for it. Since I was very hesitant about the color I just got a dress the very last minute like 2 days earlier and I wasn’t happy with it.

BLUSH BRIDESMAID

This year I will be a very conscious bridesmaid, because my cousin is getting married in October! So happy for her!
She is planning a very traditional/romantic wedding so I’m very happy because I know I will love the color of the dress (kind of pink) and I will feel very comfortable that day.

Well, you’ve been warned I will write more and more!

An Open Letter to JCPenney

The First Change.

I’m going to start saying JCPenney is one of my favorite stores to shop for clothing.
More than a year ago, the people who used to shop there on a regular basis, including myself, started to have a love-hate relationship with the store, because of big changes on pricing policies. This changes were made with the blessing of a new CEO: Ron Johnson.

The First change I did notice then was the cancellation of the 15% off you could get when completing a survey they invited you to fulfill every time you shop with them, the invitation code was in the shopping ticket and you had certain period of time to take advantage of the survey. When you complete it all the questions you automatically was given the 15% off coupon to print and shop in store.

The second change I noticed was that I didn’t got e-mails from JCPenney, like new merchandise and sale offers. The store was getting silent so the regular promotions stopped as well as the ready to print coupons we were used to get.

The third change was a big letter from the heads of the company announcing the changes in pricing policies and sales. No more .99 or .96 ending prices. Also the way clearance and regular prices will be identified, with stickers of different colors.

Finally I give up and started shopping there  again when they announced the changes in displays with the premise of having boutique like sections in the store which I liked a lot, but not the prices. Still I manage to buy there some times, but honestly with the increase on prices I went more often to Forever 21, Rue 21 and Charlotte Russe.

The NEW Change. Welcome Back Mike Ullman. Not really.

Hello! That was fast! This guy’s comeback it’s all about raising prices!

I went yesterday to my local store at IV Mall in Southern California, and guess what? The prices increased!
How can that be possible???
I was ready to buy a nice blouse for work that I really like. I was there last week so I remember the price of  the item, yesterday’s price was not the same! The prices increased 15% for like 80% of merchandise with regular price.
A little white sticker covered the original prices, but a lot of people noticed this and I saw people very disappointed. I’m glad other people notice the changes because I felt deceived, disappointed and confused.
So if you had that 20% off coupon they mailed to your house, you finally save: Nothing!
That day I was happy for going in there and buying a few items for my wardrobe, but I ended up buying only clearance items that I knew had the same price as the weekend before.

The changes for JCPenney stores have been confusing in terms of pricing.
The changes and the improvements on quality items and boutique like displays are great.

Changes had to be for the better and today I hope the actual CEO can improve the overall experience of shopping at JCP in store and on line and save the company.

Last but not least I want to say that took the time to write such a long blog because I care about the store, I wish they continue writing their history and also continue to provide us with quality items at great prices.
