Metal mirrored vanity tray for the ever growing collection of fragrances

I was in the dilemma if I should talk about this now or I should put it in my September Favourites. As you already know my monthly favourites will not have any item that I’ve mentioned before in the blog. After a whirlwind search on the perfect tray for my perfume collection, I thought this tray deserve it’s own standalone shoutout :D .

The idea came when Paris B of MyWomenStuff posted a question on her Instagram asking if we store perfumes in boxes or display the pretty bottles. I’ve always been the one who keep all perfume in it’s original box because I wouldn’t want to display it out and clean the dust off all the time. I keep all the perfume behind my vanity table’s sliding mirror compartment and I will only take one bottle out to use on a weekly basis. This organisation has been working out fine for me. Well, that was before I reshuffled all the furniture in my room and now my bed frame is blocking the sliding mirror making it a challenge for me to take my perfume out.

Fragrance Tray 1
Initially what I pictured in my mind would be a cake platter/stand/tray or whatever you call it. In my mind I’ve always wanted a white flat top cake stand within the RM30 budget. If searching for the white one is near impossible, I can do floral on white surface and if that too is impossible to find, I can make peace with clear stand. You are seeing this means I wasn’t able to find any of those and then I had my heart on this metal mirrored vanity tray while on the hunt for what I initially wanted.

Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm Tin: When anger turns to hate before turning into love. This is by far one of the best lip balm I’ve used!

A few years ago I bought a copy of Marie Claire April 2011 as it comes with a tube of Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm. I have heard so much rave on the lip balm so I bought it. Maybe the tube I had had gone bad or whatsoever because it taste awful and I totally dislike the dry texture. I threw that away and never went back to Burt’s Bees for their highly raved lip balm. Earlier this year, I needed a new lip balm for night time so I went to Sephora to look for one and decided to give Burt’s Bees a second chance. I bought Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm Tin.

Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm comes in two type of packaging, the normal tube or the one in a small metal tin. My room is quite hot in the mid day and most lip balm I had melted with such heat circulating in the room. I figure I would like the one that comes in a small tin. Plus it’s cute so why not :D

Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip Balm
Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm is the original lip balm that’s been around since 1991. This small tin contain 8.5g of product while the tube only contain 4.25g of product. Price wise, it’s about the same. I bought the tin version for RM22 while the tube version cost about RM21.80 according to Burt’s Bees Malaysia website. RM22 may sound like a hefty price to pay for just a lip balm comparing to drugstore brand that only cost slightly over RM10 for a 4.5g, isn’t it?

BOSS MA VIE Pour Femme Eau de Parfum: Exceptional carefully balanced ingredients of Cactus Blossom for Strength, Pink Floral Bouquet for Beauty and Cedar Wood for Life

It felt like ages since my last fragrance review isn’t it. I was told that reviewing fragrance is one of the toughest because we all have different body chemistry and different scent preference. In another word, what I like may not be what you will like and vice versa :D . Tell you a secret. I kinda enjoy reviewing fragrances. I mean, I am afterall just telling you what I think about the fragrance ON ME :) . As simple as that.

Usually press releases came into my email inbox even before the fragrance does. As you already know, I would be more than happy to post these info up. This time around I’ve gotten my hands on the soon-to-be (I got this in August) launch BOSS MA VIE Pour Femme Eau de Parfum even before the press release reaches my email inbox. I am a fan of HUGO BOSS Pour Femme line and I was expecting to love this new one too.

How do you like my interpretation of HUGO BOSS initial? The idea came while I was sleeping lol

Having to already own a bottle of BOSS NUIT Pour Femme a few months ago, I can already prepare myself for what to come – elegant, womenly, inspiration and confidence scent. Knowing that Gwyneth Paltrow, the ambassador for BOSS JOUR and BOSS NUIT is once again elected to be the ambassador for BOSS MA VIE Pour Femme confirmed my suspicious that the scent is going to be as good as the rest in the line. BOSS MA VIE Pour Femme completes the trio and reveals a new dimension to the BOSS woman.
