okay thanks, I safe though cause I mostly use Arabic perfume which are manly oils but sometimes we get this sprays which are mixed with other perfumes or chemicals I'm not really sure. @esha I'm really grateful for your help but if you don't mind can you please tell which chemicals that I'd have to keep away from. bless you and thank you very much.
I am not familiar with the chemicals in perfumes that are so toxic. Are the synthetic compounds listed on perfumes? I am really fascinated by this.
wow that was dark, dose all perfume do that or is there a certain type of chemical @esha
spring on your hair would change the colour of hair in time

DIY Solid Perfume Balms
Did you happen to see the homemade perfume card I shared a week ago? You can see it by clicking here. However, this is a different idea where using perfume, you can create solid balms. This easy diy allows you to pour into moulds or into cosmetic trays. These would be perfect for camping, on-the-go and for cute gifts to your girlfriends. Supplies Needed: Beeswax Sweet Almond Oil (or another carrier oil such as coconut) Fragrance oils of your choice (Lemon, Sandalwood, Vanilla, and Lavender) Containers to hold your perfume (cosmetic trays, lockets, tins, etc.) Step 1. Recipe is always the same because it's based on ratios: equal parts beeswax and carrier oil. Start a small batch of 2 tbsp of beeswax and 2 tbsp of carrier oil. TIP: If you find your beeswax/oil mixture to be too thick once you are melting down, you can always add a little more oil as you go. Step 2. Get your perfume scent on point before you start the melting process. Make sure it's a subtle scent. A good rule of thumb is to create a scent that isn't so strong that it would prevent you from having a good night's rest. Start with 10-15 drops and increase from there. TIP: So much "smelling" may turn off your receptors, preventing you from smelling the fragrance. To reset your senses and start over, take a whiff of coffee beans. This will clear the scent from your head. Step 3. Prep your containers for hot wax. You want lids off and everything prepped and open. Step 4. Use a double boiler to heat your beeswax and oil on the stove. DO NOT MICROWAVE! Be sure to heat your beeswax on low/medium heat and stir as it melts down. Add your fragrance oil into the melted mixture once the beeswax is completely melted. Step 5. Carefully pour the hot wax into your containers. They will start to harden quickly. If they harden too fast, simply return to the double boiler and heat up. Let this set up and harden. Then you are able to slide it onto your skin for a silky perfume balm that will feel and smell amazing!
Cupid Countdown: Chic Love Story
Alright ladies, I wanted to share a card about dressing the part of your love story. And I'd LOVE to hear your love story, which you can comment on below, or even better, write a card about it! (YAY!!!!) When it comes to fashion, the basis of everything that we wear is utilitarianism--functional garments. However, that's just the beginning. The rest of it is based on style, beauty, trends, ideas, visions, goals and STORY. If you can believe it, we're not only well into 2016, but marching through February on a steady course. Two months in, with Valentine's Day peeking 'round the bend, what are you wearing to tell/attract your epic love story? When you interview for a job, you're told to dress for success; my contention is that we should be dressing for all areas of success in our lives. Are you looking for love? Maybe you're totally crushing right now. Are you dressing in a way that respects WHO YOU ARE while still telling your story? I put together this really cute #februarychic story board. It's about being fun, flirty, modest and love-story ready! GUCCI Plissé lamé mini dress $1,490 Gucci's mini dress is crafted from baby-pink lamé that shimmers with silver yarns - the plissé pleats add texture to create a high-shine effect. The classic shift silhouette is cinched at the center by an elasticated waist. The modesty of the neckline balances the length of the skirt. The glittering reflection of the lame gives this a flirty spice, while the soft color pink is delicate, feminine and Valentine appropriate. SAINT LAURENT Jane metallic lizard-effect leather sandals $695 Saint Laurent's signature 'Jane' sandals are updated in glossy rose gold lizard-effect leather. This Italian-made pair is designed with slim straps for a leg-lengthening effect. Virtually identical to the Stuart Weitzman Nudist sandal (that I LOVE), this is a modern approach to reptile as it has a pink-gold metal finish that is so hard to come by. It matches the dress without being matchy-matchy. And the open-toe sandal design is STUNNING! ROCKINS Flora printed silk crepe de chine scarf $29 The watercolor-inspired print that decorates Rockins' scarf pays homage to the botanical creations of Flora Starkey. This skinny style is cut from silk crepe de chine and finished with glossy fringing. Fringe may still be a by product of what was popular in 2015, but it's totally appropriate for this time of year as it adds a layer of modesty, femininity and "warmth" if his arms aren't already wrapped around you. The floral print says that you love all things pretty, especially flowers and wouldn't mind stopping by a sidewalk florist for a handful of posies. CHANEL No. 5 Perfume $100 Elegance. Beauty. Sophistication. And modern sensuality. Classic Chanel perfume fragrance that has stood the test of time and caressed the naked bodies of both women and men, vicariously. J. Lo said it best, "I judge people by how they smell, not what they look like." AMEN! Make sure you're hygiene is on point and your perfume is delicate, soft, yet punctuated with classic notes that tell YOUR STORY. Chanel may not be for you, but you should wear something that accents and works well with your body's chemistry. Wear just enough that he has to keep leaning in, closer and closer to get that intoxicating aroma. Too much will ward him off--doing the exact opposite of what you want. Now it's your turn! What does your wardrobe say about you? How is it working to tell your epic love story? What, about your clothes, is working against you? @BeannachtOreibh @nicolejb @ButterflyBlu @Arellano1052 @alywoah @jordanhamilton @MichelleHolly @VeronicaArtino @TessStevens @shannonl5 @humairaa @TerrecaRiley @danidee @BluBear07 @thePinkPrincess @EasternShell @matildajgarrett @1FallenAngel @alyssastano @Adrienpie @RaquelArredondo @Luci546 @BivianaaChavez @Lushisushi @Danse l @luna1171 @JPBenedetto @deefran @RogueLeigh @myguardian @Gacrus @MissB82 @Lizzeh @Kyokeo @Emealia @ShinigamiSan @baileykayleen @DestinaByrd @ChelseaAustin @xojuliettexox @netchtiBates @KellyOConnor @Kamiamon @parktaemi @arnelli @NickySerban @Dynamo @VKookie47 @medley24 @ZackMcLaughlin @MoisEsGaray @KeziahWright @pppfittu13 @washmydishes @eoin8899 @LAVONYORK @orenshani7 @Alletaire @funnella @MariPili @SamratGolhar @MajahnNelson @hikaymm @TensaZangetsu98 @carmaa10 @cindystran @AshelyJewell @MaighdlinS @JamiMilsap @xDaisyDaysx @LisaMarissa @Emmeronsage @LemarDeco @Ash1998 @TracyLynnn @KaiTakashima @saraortiz2002 @Zxenna @MelissaMae @atmi @Helixx @VanessaSimmons @JessicaChaney (MY APOLOGIES if I missed any guys--in taking them off this list!!!!!!!!!)
Layered Scent DIY Candle
I try not to stop by Bath & Body Works when I hit the mall. The scent coming from the shop always tempt me to step in. And when I do, I step out with a few antibacterial hand gel, moonlight path body mist, and scented candles. The candles burn out fast and I get them replace more often than I should. Which is why I came to the solution of making my own scented candle. They require some time and work, but it's definitely worth it considering the time spent on driving and parking. In addition, these are fun to make for the holiday season. Materials: Soy wax flakes Crayons in assorted colors Small heat-proof jars Wicks Essential oils Instructions: 1. Choose the number of layers you want to create for each candle. Divide the wax evenly. I used about ¾ to 1 cup wax flakes per layer (so about ⅓ to ¼ cup per layer, per jar.) Remove the papers from the crayons and break into small pieces. Melt soy wax flakes and crayons in a pan. Slowly stir in 5-10 drop of the desired essential oil. 2. Adhere the wicks to the bottoms of the jars using a little melted wax. Wrap the wick around a skewer or toothpick to keep it centered. 3. Pour the first color layer into the jars. Let cool completely. You can speed up the process by placing them outside or in a cool place. 4. Repeat the process with more wax, crayons, and essential oils. To keep the new layer from melting the previous layer, it is helpful to let the wax cool slightly before pouring into the jar. 5. After the last layer is poured into the jar, let the jars sit undisturbed for several hours or overnight. Trim the wicks, top with the lids, and package up to give away.

Victoria's Secret Perfume Repels Mosquitoes. Really.
When you're out getting a head start on your Christmas shopping this weekend, you might want to stop off at Victoria's Secret and pick up some perfume. A recent study published in the Journal of Insect Science has shown a pretty interesting relationship between mosquitoes and the Victoria's Secret perfume 'Bombshell', finding that wearing this perfume can actually prevent mosquito bites - sometimes more effectively than leading insect repellents currently on the market. The perfume - priced at a hefty $68 per bottle - might not be the most economical choice when selecting a bug repellent. However, researchers at New Mexico State's Molecular Vector Physiology Lab insist that discovering what makes this perfume so effective could help product developers continue moving away from the current active ingredient in most repellents on the market - DEET, a potentially toxic oil that can cause allergic reactions to those with sensitive skin. The lab tested 10 different repellents against a control and found that while DEET-based repellents worked more effectively overall, for a non-DEET product, the perfume remained a steadily effective repellent for over 2 hours. So, why does this Victoria's Secret perfume work so effectively? According to the report, the perfume was chosen for its purple passionfruit, peony, and vanilla orchid notes, citing that the team was interested in finding a correlation between mosquito activity and 'fruity, floral' fragrances. "There was some previous literature that said fruity, floral scents attracted mosquitoes, and to not wear those. It was interesting to see that the mosquitoes weren't actually attracted to the person that was wearing the Victoria's Secret perfume - they were repelled by it." So, will you be spritzing on some floral notes the next time you head out into the mosquito-filled world? Or would you much rather spring for a standard repellent - DEET and all? Let me know in the comments below, and for more WTF news, follow my WTF Street Journal collection!
