Victoria's Secret: Getting Fitted and Love Rocks Fragrance

I was at the mall with my sister and we've been talking about wanting to split the bra sale going on at Victoria's Secret. A selection of bras are 2 for $40. I decided to get a bra fitting since I was already there and I was a tiny bit off of what I thought I was. I don't know if many of you know, but I guess about 70% of women are wearing the wrong bra size. That's terrible. Imagine the lack of support our boobies are getting?! Anyways I tried a bra in the right size and I can't believe how much of a difference it makes. I, of course, had to buy that bra and super happy with my purchase. So ladies, if you happen to be at a Victoria's Secret or any department store, make sure to get a bra fitting. You will not regret it.

I also bought the mini sized body mist in their new fragrance, Love Rocks. I was approached by a sales lady to smell their new fragrance and it smells yummy&sexy. My initial thought after seeing the red bottle was that it was going to be way too strong. It's a tad sweet, warm, and also fresh smelling. The Victoria's Secret website describes this fragrance as:
Wild at heart. A punk princess. Rock chick meets très chic in this rebellious riff on vivid plum, hypnotic violet and sensual vanilla, the latest addition to our glamorous Sexy Little Things® fragrance collection. Love out loud in Love Rocks! Domestic.

Fragrance type: fruity floral
Top notes: bergamot, peony, raspberry sorbet
Middle notes: sandalwood flower, jasmine, peach nectar, plum, stephanotis
Low notes: golden amber, violet, cashmere musk, vanilla
I definitely get the fruity notes in the beginning but then the amber, musk, and vanilla take over. I'm not really into sweet smelling perfumes but this has a great balance.

Simple Neutral Eye

So I was bored and decided to do a simple neutral eye. I have moments where I just experiment and practice my makeup. It can be a bit difficult to find a good eye look for work because I want some color but nothing over the top. I decided to use my Everyday Minerals eyeshadow in Wildflowers. It's a pretty matte taupe/mauve color. I haven't been reaching for this because its a bit out of my reach. My mineral makeup is in a separate makeup case under the sink so I don't often go down there.

I had only used my Stila Smudge pot in bronze for eye makeup to work this morning and I decided to do a neutral look to go with it when I got home to experiment. And sorry in advance, but I didn't want to put mascara on! I really like how it turned out. Hope you guys like it too!
