Look I get it, I’m a consumer too. And let’s be honest, the internet makes it rough. Don’t get me wrong, I love shopping online, but sometimes that ‘nude’ sweater you got on final sale turns out to be hot pink, and so not what you were looking for. If you’re in the market to discover some cool new brands or just want to know how that sweater actually looks and feels in real life, you’ve come to the right place. Here are some product reviews that give you insight into quality, functionality and beauty from a shopaholic’s perspective.

t&n ballet flats review

everyday luxury | T&N ballet flats review

Simplicity is a rare treasure in life. Webster describes it as the “the quality of being easy to understand or use.” It’s a natural component of what one would consider an everyday luxury of the minimalist. Straightforward, understated, and a support of one’s lifestyle. T&N is one brand that captures the essence of just that. In this T&N ballet flats review, we will cover just what simplicity in footwear means for you, including a detailed personal review of my experience with the comfort, quality and components of their classic ballet flat. About T&N It’s always a paramount preface for me to start all product reviews with an introduction to the story behind the brand.

luxury fashion creed millesime imperial review

discover sultry luxury – Creed millesime imperial cologne

Ok, I’d be lying if I said I selected this perfume for any reason other than the packaging. But can you blame me? Dripping in luxury, this 100 ML bottle of decadence looks as if pure gold was melted over the entire bottle in one seamless pour. Then as if by magic, the symmetrical Creed logo rises from the liquid gold just a fraction to deepen the metallic shine. It’s flawless by design, with the cut cap standing proudly like a gold brick chiseled to perfection. The box is as beautiful. A hardy white craft board is embossed in gold and silver, with Creed’s 3-feathered crown gracing the box top and center. Millesime Imperial is place on the box as a plaque, giving it an even more regal look and feel. And the scent? photography:KRISTINA PETRICK | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | cologne c/o:CREED   When I was gifted a Creed cologne bottle of choice to feature on an Instagram promotion, I wasn’t able to get the full experience of scent testing before making the …
