Fragrance lovers, I’m ecstatic to share this post with you today after an unintentional hiatus! Although I’ve always had a fondness for fragrance and have amassed quite the collection over the course of my blogging career, it’s been 3 years since I published my last dedicated FRAGRANCE post. Just as I’ve done with the return of BEAUTY content, I wanted to bring my love of fragrance back to JustineCelina in a more meaningful way — and after exploring a few different ideas, that’s exactly what I’ve done in this My Favourite Floral Fragrances post. Today I’m sharing my most worn, most loved, most complimented floral fragrances with you — the scents I have on constant rotation from February through September! If you’re in the market for a new spring fragrance or are simply craving some lighthearted beauty inspiration, you’ve come to the right place.
Spritzing on a fragrance is the cherished finishing touch in my daily beauty routine. Even on days when I’m not leaving the apartment, I never skip fragrance! Lately with all the time I’ve spent at home I find myself relishing in little luxuries like fragrance to help lift my spirits and make me feel more like myself — selecting a scent to perfume each day’s memories is an important act of self care and one that brings me great joy. Today I’m sharing that joy with you and introducing my 3 favourite designer floral fragrances (including my signature scent!), while divulging all the details about when I wear them, scent descriptions and notes, and alternate variations you may want to explore — complete with shoppable links from various retailers. These lovely spring and summer scents range from fresh and fruity, to sensual and spicy, to warm and sophisticated — there’s truly something for everyone! Pour yourself a glass of bubbly and let’s celebrate the season’s quintessential scent (and our shared love of FLOWERS!) in fragrance form this May long weekend!
Year after year as we approach Valentine’s Day, I find myself seeing through proverbial rose-coloured glasses and craving all things pink! And during the almost 5 years I’ve been blogging here at JustineCelina, I’ve created a plethora of dreamy, pink themed content. To celebrate love day this year, I’m sharing mega dose of all things pink, feminine and romantic in my 40+ Pink Valentine’s Day Ideas roundup — featuring a collection of my favourite pink things across categories. From what I wear, to the beauty products and fragrances I chose, to the flowers I bring into my home (or to my screen!), to what I eat and drink to how I entertain and practice self care, I love to incorporate February’s quintessential hue into Valentine’s Day — no matter what I’m up to!
Whether you’re in search of pink Valentine’s Day outfit ideas, the perfect pink lipstick, gift ideas for your significant other, pretty cocktails, seductive fragrances, plant-based pink recipes, flower arranging tips, self care ideas, or Galentine’s Day entertaining inspiration, I’ve got you covered! Plan yourself the best Valentine’s Day yet whether you’re single or attached, no matter how you celebrate by fixing yourself a delicious pink cocktail (may I suggest a Rose Infused Cherry Gin Fizz?) and cozing up with me tonight for some fun, attainable and creative ways to add more pink to your to your love day!
Today’s Monthly Beauty Favourites is a bit different from the norm — believe it or not, there’s no makeup included! With my finger injury derailing the past couple of weeks, to be completely honest, putting on makeup when I didn’t need to wasn’t high on my priority list. Since I spent half of April laying low and healing up, as you can imagine it was pretty low key beauty wise! For the first part of the month, I immersed myself in fragrance for my Spring / Summer 2017 Fragrance Edit and was in final testing stages for the Marc Jacobs Beauty Le Marc Liquid Lip Crème post I published mid month. Other than that, experimenting with new beauty products when everything took at least twice as long to do with an injured finger just didn’t interest me — so I took some much needed, makeup free downtime. It was refreshing!
For a completely different change of pace, my April 2017 Beauty Favourites posts is short and sweet with just 3 products included — but they’re 3 products I used almost daily this past month. Learn more about an indulgent, natural, vegan lotion, a stunning new fragrance (those of you who’ve been following along with my Insta Stories recently may already know what I’m talking about!) and a great eyelash curler. And not to worry — my makeup loving little soul is already into some incredible new beauty products this month that you’ll be hearing all about in my May Beauty Favourites!
Welcome back for another installment of my seasonal FRAGRANCE EDIT! This time, I’m sharing my top recommendations for Spring / Summer 2017 — the fragrances I love to wear as we transition into warmer weather and sunshiny days! I like to go lighter, brighter and fresher in both my beauty routine and fragrance rotation during the spring and summer, transitioning my fragrance collection along with the seasons. Today I’m working with Sephora Canada to introduce you to 8 beautiful fragrances perfect for balmy spring weather and carefree summer days including 4 Longtime Favourites (including a fragrance I’ve worn for over 10 years!) and 4 Recent Obsessions!
If you’d like to explore the exciting world of designer fragrance this season but don’t know where to start, I’ll be your tour guide! Come gather around my vanity as I chat about my favourite fragrances from Givenchy, Dolce&Gabanna, Versace, Maison Margiela, Guerlain, NEST, fresh and Commodity. Today I’ve selected an array of my most loved scents ranging from fresh and fruity, to crisp and clean, to warm and soft, to light and bright — there’s something for everyone (and every budget) in my Spring / Summer 2017 Fragrance Edit. This post is also a fantastic resource for those of you looking for Mother’s Day gift ideas!
Welcome back for another edition of Monthly Beauty Favourites! I have a little bit of everything to share with you this month — including including makeup, haircare, skincare, fragrance and wellness recommendations that span categories here at JustineCelina. My February 2017 Beauty Favourites is a long one, so if you’re spending this snowy Sunday afternoon at home with half an hour to spare, curl up with a nice hot mug of tea and let’s chat chat about a few of my favourite things!
I was truly all over the map this month in terms of products I used and loved, which makes for a very eclectic medley! Makeup wise I found myself drawn to romantic, rosy hues, nude lips and colourful, blown out smoky eyes — I’m craving spring inspired hues, but still embracing the drama of winter. Extremely dry, frigid winter weather persists here in Calgary (and unfortunately March is looking cold!) so my skin has definitely been feeling the effects. I discovered some extremely hydrating products for both my hands and my lips containing nourishing oils to aid in hydration. I also found a great product for taming those pesky flyaways, an inexpensive, no frills setting powder for the face and I rediscovered my love for a metallic, budget friendly eyeliner. I also visited my favourite spa in Canmore for a massage and picked up a chakra balancing essential oil to enjoy at home (in fact, I have some in a warmer right now!). On the completely other end of the spectrum, I feel head over heels for Mon Guerlain Eau de Parfum after attending a lovely event celebrating its launch earlier last month!
