Oh my goodness , it has been eight months since my last post! 2020 has so far been a strange year filled with never-ending negativity and uncertainty. There is something that I am definitely certain about, though…
Emily in Paris, starring the ravishing Lily Collins, streams on Netflix October 2nd and I CANNOT WAIT.
The show’s creator is Darren Star, the man behind Sex and the City… which means, we’ll see lots of drama, love and fashion, AND SHOES. Patricia Field, who was the forefront of costume design in both Sex and the City and The Devil Wears Prada is also leading the costume department in Emily In Paris.
I mean, watching the trailer gave me goosebumps because maybe because in another universe and another life I could have been Emily. Who wouldn’t want to be Emily? She’s in Paris, the City of Light- look at the sceneries, the Eiffel tower, her outfits, her shoes, the people, her job, and OMG did I mention her shoes?!
Victoria’s Secret just launched their newest fragrance, Paris. A limited edition and also the official fragrance of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, Paris was inspired by The City of Light, which VS also deemed as “the world’s sexiest city”.
Victoria’s Secret describe the scent as “festive, crisp and sexy… captures the scent of Parisian gardens in wintertime.” Scent notes are composed of French cypress, night blooming jasmine and white cedarwood. The glamorous diamond-cut bottle seems to give a nod to the architectural style of the iconic Eiffel Tower. The red ribbon add that touch of sexy as well as holiday cheer to the season’s festivities. The bottle is encased in a white and clear box with glitter and snowflakes, reflecting the sparkle of the city at night.
Paris Eau de Parfum is available in 50 ml/1.7 fl. oz. size. The collection also includes a Fragrance Mist (250 ml/8.4 fl. oz.) and a Fragrance Lotion (250 ml/8.4 fl. oz.), which the latter you could get for FREE for a limited time. In addition to the lotion, you can also get a FREE TOTE until Dec. 4th or while supplies last in store and online.
Stella Maxwell is the beautiful face behind this campaign.

For those who know me well a have a slight obsession with Paris and anything Parisian. Remember my 25th Birthday Celebration? I also love Victoria’s Secret and anything VS. So of course there is no doubt that I had to absolutely get it. I went to the newly opened VS at Kamakana Ali’i in Kapolei, used my $15 Angel Rewards Card and went home a very happy & fulfilled shopaholic-on-a-budget. 😉
The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show will air Monday Dec. 5, 10/9c on CBS

Tonight, I had the wonderful opportunity to attend one of the most amazing events I have ever experienced, thanks to my sister, Natalie….
The Honolulu Japanese Chamber of Commerce produced their 12th annual “Chopsticks and Wine” event at the Hawaii Convention Center entitled “Ooh La La…” a petite Paris, featuring Hawaii culinary delights and unlimited wine 😉
More photos later, but here is an idea of my outfit for the evening. Stripes & red- very Parisienne!
The mission of a quarter-century-old fashionista living on a rock in the middle of the pacific begins here. When I was little I always told myself that by the time I was 25 years old, I would be exactly where I wanted to be in life. This means knowing WHAT i wanted in my life, […]
