Throwback Thursday: So…? Fragrances + 90s Makeup Look

One fragrance brand that introduced me to perfumes as a teen was So…? fragrances. When I was given the opportunity to receive a sample to feature on my blog, I thought it was a great excuse for some tween/teen nostalgia and to put together a 90s makeup look.

90s Makeup look

So…? 30ml and a Tattoo choker from Kmart

The sample that I received was the original *So…? fragrance. While I have tried it, it has been over 10 years quite a while since I’ve purchased/worn it

I was surprised to hear that the So…? fragrances were still available after all this time, you can check out the range here.

*So…?
Top notes: Tangerine and Orange Flower
Middle notes: Jasmine, Ylang Ylang and Rose
Base notes: Amber, Sandalwood and Vanilla

The scent takes me back to when I was a tween/teen starting high school…other things that remind me of high school are tattoo chokers (pictured above), brown toned lipsticks, troll dolls and singlet dresses worn over a white t-shirt. Some 90s trends are making a comeback and I love that the current generation of teens can appreciate some of the ’90s kids’ trends…Kinda sad you can’t buy the original troll dolls any more!

Valentines day gift Ideas for single ladies

This isn’t going to be a BS ‘down with Valentine’s day, I don’t need a man’ post, where I just wallow in self-pity…but rather a list of Valentines Day gift ideas to celebrate your single BFFS, your mum, sister or even yourself! (as if you need an excuse to buy yourself ‘gifts’)

While there are things I hate about Valentine’s Day, there a things I love about it too. I don’t like that every store/brand/restaurant assumes everyone is in a relationship, but I do love all the cutesy heart-shaped things and special release products that are in stores around this time! I’ve always been obsessed with heart shapes, drawing them on my notepads in school just because I like the way they look. I will always believe in romance, even if it never happens for me.

Valentines day gift ideas

Top left: Glasshouse Verona- A dozen Roses candle. Center: Target Limited Editions Marquee heart light. Bottom left: Beyonce Heat Wild Orchid EDP 50ml. Bottom right: Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 camera

Glasshouse Verona- A Dozen Roses mini candle, 60g  RRP$21.95- I love the smell of roses, so I knew straight away that I would love this candle! It is definitely a ‘true’ rose scent, but along with the other notes, it isn’t overbearing. It is available in the large size- 350g and mini-60g (which is surprising, LE candles hardly ever get released as minis!) The thing I love the most about Verona, is the beautiful jar that has silver cursive writing all over it!

IMG_0034Limited Editions Marquee Heart Light- Red from Target, RRP $40- As soon as I saw this marquee light I knew I had to get one. I have seen heart Marquee lights at a few different stores, but the Target one looked like the best quality (and was one of the cheaper ones!), Target also has other marquee lights in different shapes…star, ampersand (&) and arrow.

IMG_0014Beyonce Heat Wild Orchid EDP 50ml, RRP$59 from Priceline and other perfume stockists- This fragrance is gorgeous! I it is a fruity-floral scent, but without being sickly sweet. It smells fairly unique too…sometimes perfumes can smell similar to other scents. I purchased mine from Chemist Warehouse when they had a sale on, for $39.95. It’s in a pretty magenta bottle too!

IMG_0022FUJIFILM Instax Mini 8 Camera- Pink RRP $99- I purchased this camera early last year and I love it. It takes clear wallet sized Polaroids and has a few different settings. It comes in a few different colours too. You can now also buy a photo album to keep your prints in, from Target!

IMG_0019Hope you have a great Valentine’s Day, whether you are in a relationship or not!
