Review/ Drew Barrymore’s Radiant, Sultry & Cherished Perfume



Something I never thought would actually happen has happened. Drew Barrymore’s Flower Beauty collection has finally come to Canadian Walmarts. I was super thrilled when I heard the news because for the longest time I was picking up bits and pieces every time I went to the USA and now I will be able to pick up more items from this line.

The talk amongst people online was that it wasn’t going to be the whole line of Flower Beauty and as far as I can tell the only things we seem not to carry….yet is the bags and I am holding out hope that we will eventually get them if not I will check them out when I go to the USA in February. It seems like the display is growing every time I go and look at Walmart.


Today I am going to talk about the three newly released perfumes. I have to say that I think this is probably only the second or third time that I have ever bought a celebrities perfume for myself. I am not one that will jump on the hype of  purchasing every single perfume that comes out by celebrities or even my favorite celebrities.

I decided that I was going to buy the Eau de Parfume Rollerball Roll-ons instead of buying the bottles although I have to say if I was going to buy them I totally would because I love the look of the bottles.

The bottles are super cute and would probably look so pretty sitting on a vanity or dresser or make up table. I love the packaging and I think if I can get through my roller balls that I might actually ask for these as a present.

IMG_0034 I love the packaging of the roller balls as you can see below and I think the rose gold caps make it look like its an expensive perfume. I even like the outer packaging as you can see above. I have to say the whole packaging of her line makes everything like expensive in my opinion.

  • A sensual and alluring oriental floral featuring Purple Plum, Night Blooming Jasmine and Patchouli

  • Wear alone or combine throughout the day with CHERISHED and RADIANT so your fragrance evolves with you.

These Eau De Parfumes are right up my ally. I loved each scent on its own and all together like Drew has suggested she wore them.

To give each one a fair try I wore each one on its own for a week. I found that Radiant is light enough to wear during the day. I loved the scent and this is something that I would definitely gravitate towards in the spring and summer more but this is something that I can see myself wearing all year long.

I found that Cherished was just a little heavier in the scent and it would be something I would probably grab if I was going out in the evening. This is sort of like a fall/winter scent for me. I liked the smell and its totally different from what I normally wear.

Finally the last one is Sultry. I instantly thought of my aunt when I put this on. This was sort of her scent and the one she liked to wear all the time so having this is sort of like having her near by when I miss her. This one is well is a heavier scent and ideal for the evening.

I love how you can layer the perfumes and get many scents out of them. You can wear them alone or combine them with the other scents to make your own which I really like because you will have that different scent no one else will have with different cominations.

I am thrilled that I was able to pick all of these up in a Canadian Walmart and that I decided on the rollerballs because I will be able to slip them in my make up bag and take them with me when I am going out or traveling.

If your looking for a stocking stuffer or gift from that special someone I highly recommend these. I think I might ask Santa to bring me the bottles.

Please be sure to check back often as I will be reviewing more items from the Flower Beauty collection.

Please note that I purchased these Eau De Parfumes with my own money.

Review/ Shadow Fire

I received this book for free from publisher/pr firm in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.




Shadow Fire by Kimber Leigh Wheaton 
(The Light Chronicles #1) 
Publication date: February 24th 2014
Genres: Fantasy, Romance, Young Adult

Ashlyn – a free-spirited teenager whose peaceful life is shattered when the village
elders honor her with a perilous quest to recover a stolen relic.

Zane – a jaded mercenary, torn by his undeniable desire for Ashlyn and the dark
secret that could make her hate him forever.

Delistaire – a malevolent sorcerer driven by an insatiable lust for power.
All three are bound together by an ancient relic supposedly infused with the power
of a Goddess.

Shadow Fire – adventure, passion, secrets, and betrayal

As Ashlyn and Zane race to stay one step ahead of the evil lurking in the shadows,
their passions are ignited and their bond strengthens. But will they find the relic
before Delistaire? Or has their entire quest been orchestrated from the very
beginning by a madman in pursuit of ultimate power?




Kimber Leigh Wheaton is a YA/NA author with a soft spot for sweet romance and is a
member of Romance Writers of America.

She is married to her soul mate, has a teenage son, and shares her home with three
dogs and four cats. No, she doesn’t live on a farm, she just loves animals. Her
house is filled with dragons, though she does lament that they are the porcelain,
non-flying variety.

Kimber Leigh is addicted to romance, videogames, superheroes, villains, and
chocolate—not necessarily in that order. (If she has to choose, she’ll take a
chocolate covered superhero!)

Her debut novel, Shadow Fire, is the first book in the Light Chronicles series.
Watch for book two, Stolen Moon, a standalone sequel, coming August 2014.

Lately it seems like I have been craving different things in regards to reading and stepping away from what I normally read.  As a book blogger this is a good thing, right?

When I first read the synopsis of the book I knew I wanted to read it because it sounded really good and I have to say that I was really impressed because I normally don’t read fantasy. I have tried don’t get me wrong but I just could never get into it and even with the encouraging efforts of a really cute guy I use to like back in the day. Although now  I am thinking that this might be the book that peaks my interest into fantasy.

I have to say right away that I just love the cover of the book. Don’t you?

Shadow Fire is the first book in the series and the next book is called Stolen Moon (with another pretty cover). Which sounds really good too and according to reviews of the books these can be read as stand alones.

Every five years girls between the ages of 14 and 18 are chosen to set out an a very impossible mission to recover the golden statue and no one has been successful or returned alive until perhaps now. Ashlyn has been selected to take part. Her partner in all of this is Zane ans Shadow and you can tell almost instantly there there is something between Ashlyn and Zane. Now will this get in the way of the mission or not?

Ashlyn was just the perfect kind of character that I like because she is just like any other girl but she isn’t afraid to get down and dirty so to speak. She was a great kick ass character and wasn’t afraid even though Zane was there to protect her.

I loved how Kimber gave us a little info about this missing golden statue and that it was addressed. I felt it made the story that much more interesting in my eyes. I mean had she not I would have been wondering why was it so important to get it back and why did no one return back alive.

This mission was not easy by any means and Ashlyn, Zane and Shadow had to encounter alot of creatures/monsters etc and many twists and turns and I liked that about the book. This is what makes a page turner and I honestly have to say it makes for a fun read because you don’t quite know what is going to happen next.

I loved Zane from the first moment of meeting him and if I had to pick a book boyfriend I would have to say it would be him. There is just something about him that I really liked. Yes he is extremely cute but he comes off like he knows he is cute and all that but isn’t like that, if that makes any sense.

I am curious to see where this story line will end up and will it continue into the next book?
