Chatoyant is steeped in complex layers and sensual beauty.

Like a captivating vision from your dreams, Rouge Bunny Rouge’s Chatoyant Eau de Parfum, instantly takes hold of your senses to slowly lure you into a magical place full of wonder and awe. Sophisticated and sensual, this woody floral fragrance created by perfumer, Francis Deleamont, launched 2012 as one of the three richly layered, intriguing fragrances that make up their Fragrant Confections Collection.

Chatoyant opens with cool citrus notes of crisp lemon and bergamot iced over floral. As that ice melts in the heart, the tart juice drips over the orchid, jasmine, rose, and lily of the valley, curbing the floral sweetness with a lovely, luminous quality.  

The heart is utterly feminine, romantic, confident, and full of effortless elegance when it blooms to life.  At the same time, it has a delicate velvety quality that evokes tenderness in how it touches you once those notes meld together. 

You find yourself bewitched, almost lost in this special world of where reality and dreams mix.  Yet, the moment this fragrance begins to dry down in the base with sandalwood, cedarwood, musk, and vanilla, it takes on more of a luscious, sexy creaminess that compels you to lose yourself to its inviting warm embrace.

Just as divine as Chatoyant is the gorgeous icy glass falcon with its etching of plants and heavy silver cap that beautifully suits the nature of this perfume.  

I adore Chatoyant ($129) and highly recommend it for yourself or anyone on your holiday gift shopping list because is irresistible and a gem of an oriental eau de parfum!

Foods That Can Help Your Dieting Efforts When You Have the Urge to Snack!

Apples are just one food you may want to stock up on when dieting.

Trying to shed weight is never an easy task.  Whether you’re cutting back on your calorie intake or changing your diet and food choices, you may find that you’re still hungry.  Instead of suffering because you’re determined to stay on track, then I some helpful dieting advice that I want to share.

What I suggest is eating foods that provide plenty of filling protein or are loaded with fiber will keep you more satisfied than what you’re eating.  For example, a lowly large egg, for one, has only 78 calories each while being a great source of B vitamins, vitamin D, and minerals such zinc, selenium, iron, and copper.  When that urge to break your diet strikes, try eating a hard-boiled egg over a former snack choice.

Two Eco-Friendly Ways to Prevent Static Cling!

Dryer sheets or fabric softeners can help soften, scent and prevent static cling as we all know.  My favorite is Purex Crystals because it does all you want it to do and will not build up in the fabrics over time. Nonetheless, if you tend to be allergic to dryer sheets or fabric softeners and want a simple way to prevent static cling, I have two solutions that can save you grief from an embarrassing situation.

Though you won’t get that wonderful softness and scent of either form, what you can do is reach for some aluminum foil.  The plan is to take a sheet big enough to form a ball (about the size of a baseball) to throw in your dryer with the clothes.  Believe it or not, this little laundry solution is a green and chemical free way to prevent static electricity.

Another excellent solution to help fight static cling is something I learned years ago from a co-worker that works beautifully using hand lotion.  Unscented, eco-friendly body lotions can also do the same thing.  So check out my earlier post because this handy solution can save you potential embarrassment, too.

My No Work Chocolate-Peppermint Drops are puffy cookies, but not soft or hard. These yummy delights have a wonderful, in between texture brimming with finely, chopped walnuts and flavor fortified with peppermint extract, which magnificently compliments the chocolate.

Your Feet Deserve My DIY Foot Sloughing Soak for Skin Pampering!

feet wearing snakeskin heels.jpeg
Hard-working, stylish feet need all the help they can get--like this soothing recipe!

We spend more time concentrating our beauty efforts on our faces and bodies than our often neglected feet. However, if you want to reward them with smoother skin, I hope that you will set aside some time to try this simple recipe because it encourages smoother feet as it very gently exfoliates rough skin.  

Another perk is how stimulating you will find this homemade foot treat is once you take advantage of this warm, soothing soak.  Your tired feet will thank you.

DIY Foot Sloughing Soak

1/3 cup of warm olive oil
juice of two fresh lemons
1 vitamin E soft gel capsule (400 I.U.)
2 drops of peppermint essential oil

Heat the olive oil until it is warm, but not hot so it is a comfortable temperature.

Pour this into your foot size basin along with the juice of two fresh lemon, the contents of the vitamin E capsule once you pricked it open with a pin and the two drops of peppermint essential oil.  

Soak your clean feet for as long as you can, but at least ten minutes before drying.  Follow up with foot cream.
