BADGLEY MISCHKA INTRODUCES SIGNATURE FRAGRANCE

The debut of Badgley Mischka’s namesake fragrance has arrived just in time for the holiday season and Valentine’s Day.

Mark Badgley and James Mischka refer to the scent as a “floral champagne” – perfect for celebrating. The lush and dewy floral opens with a soft blend of magnolias complimented by notes of amber and musk with a sparkling top embodying the effortlessly feminine glamour the brand is best known for.

“Everything we do has a thread of glamour to it. A fragrance can create a mood, inspire confidence and, in an instant, transform the way a woman looks and feels. We want her to feel like she’s the only woman in the room.” – Mark Badgley and James Mischka.

Badgley Mischka Eau de Parfum is available at BadgleyMischka.com and Dillard’s.

Style + Life + Fashion Mother’s Day Gift Guide 2018 and Activities: Woven Handbag, Mirror Sunglasses, Scented Soy Candle, Plush Robe, and Tassel Earrings

Mother’s Day is approaching soon!  We are only a few weeks away from showing our loved ones how special they are to us.  For me, Mother’s Day is about celebrating moms everywhere.

A few special touches include sending cards or flowers to my family and friends because we are truly a small cult.  Ultimately, we understand each other’s trials from teething to high school navigation.

And there’s a variety of mom types.  We have traditional moms, stepmoms, foster moms, and so forth.

Lastly, don’t forget to acknowledge those that have lost their mother.  Try to find a small token to celebrate them as an individual on this day.  A thoughtful option is to schedule a coffee date or spa treatment.

Mother’s Day is truly about celebrating the sisterhood of all women!

The Best Mother’s Day Activities:

  1.  Visit the local spa for a massage.
  2.  Get a manicure and pedicure.
  3.  Attend brunch with family.
  4.  Participate in Paint Nite.
  5.  Plant a garden.
  6.  Go to the movies.
  7. Take a mini-vacation.
  8. Attend afternoon tea.
  9. Do crafts together.
  10. Have a picnic.

Age defying Helena Christensen celebrated the launch of her new fragrance – lostinflowers – for perfume brand strangelove nyc – at a sexy, intimate party in downtown New York this week, alongside strangelove nyc founder Elizabeth Gaynes.

Smouldering in a mini floral dress, with red fuschia lips, the supermodel turned on the charm for guests including British Designer India Hicks; fellow Models Amy Bracco Biden (Joe Biden’s Niece), Caroline Brasch Nielson, Lana Ogilvie and Nadja Bender; Infuencer Danielle Snyder, Socialite Camilla Olsson, NY Sex Columnist Jasmine Loeb, Restauranter Matt Abramcyk, Retail Guru (ex Joe the Boxer) Nick Graham, WWD Editor Miles Socha, Fashion Photographer Antoine Verglas, Designer Camilla Staerk, Sunhee Grinnell of Vanity Fair and Celebrity Hairdresser Owen Gould amongst others.

About lostinflowers:
strangelove nyc combines the purity of flower essences blended with oud to create their fourth scent, lostinflowers and will launch 1st December, exclusively at Bergdorf Goodman, New York — adding a romantic and joyful addition to a collection of sensual niche fragrances including deadofnight, meltmyheart and silencethesea.

An innocent yet seductive blend, lostinflowers, combines the euphoria of champaca from India with the gentle purity of muguet and real tagette flowers, the aphrodisiac power of natural gardenia enfleurage, the striking richness of saffron and the deep magnetism of rare oud. This happy fragrance features large amounts of pure and natural Indian champaca, one of the most expensive and rarest of ingredients in perfumery. Known for spreading joy and uplifting spirits, champaca was used in ancient times as a mood enhancer.
