Shani Asks You Sundays – Which Giveaway would you prefer to win?

I know this is cheating a bit, but the question this week is:

Which of the two prizes I’m offering would you like to win? A Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Balm or a La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo+?

Please note, these giveaways are open to US residents only, for the single reason that I brought these home from France for people to try since they are either not available or not as easily available here. I’ll have another international giveaway in the future.

Important rules and information:

  • Enter via the Rafflecopter widgets below
  • The prize is EITHER a Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Balm OR La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo+. This giveaway is sponsored by SheDreamsinPerfectFrench.com and not affiliated with Nuxe or La Roche-Posay
  • These giveaway is open to US residents only, except where prohibited by law
  • The giveaways end at 12:00 am June 2, 2014 and one winner will be chosen randomly via Rafflecopter for each giveaway
  • You can only win one giveaway. If the same winner is chosen, a second winner will be selected
  • The winners will be contacted via e-mail and have 72 hours to respond in order to claim their prize. This means you need to use a valid e-mail address when entering your information in the Rafflecopter widget. In the event the winner does not respond in that time period, another winner will be chosen
  • All entries will be checked for validity, so there’s no getting around any of it 😉

Wishlist Wednesday #33 – black leather satchel

Affilier

Undoubtedly, I do love color in my wardrobe and on my face. Yet one thing that is a staple in my wardrobe is a black leather satchel bag. I currently have the Treesje Brixton, which I didn’t use that much after I first purchased it a few years ago, but have been using every day since November.

Music Monday #33 – “Gigantic” by The Pixies

Since 2005, every time I hear “Gigantic” by The Pixies, I’m transported back to Leeds Festival. I have so many strong associations with it.

Now, thanks to Apple and their commercials, I’m reminded of it all the time.

Happy Monday!

Shani Asks You Sundays – Rank the X-Men Men

No, you didn’t read that wrong. 😀 I was watching the Graham Norton show last night, and he had on Hugh Jackman, Michael Fassbender, and James McAvoy. They were talking about the “100 hotness rankings” that had come out, and how they were ranked, and James was way, way below them in the rankings.

What order would YOU rank the guys in?

James McAvoy up to, all the way. I have adored him for forever. Then Fassy. Then Hugh. (Sorry, never been a huge Hugh fangirl!)

Wishlist Wednesday #32 – Sophia Webster for J.Crew Anneka kitten heel pumps

Sophia Webster for J.Crew Anneka kitten heel pumps
HELLOOOOOOO LOVER!!

Luckily for my wallet, this week’s Wishlist Wednesday item is theoretical only. I’m not a huge J.Crew person. I love their basic tees, and I do like some clothing, but it’s so overpriced. And so I never heard about, and subsequently missed, their collaboration with British shoe designer Sophia Webster. And I missed buying these Sophia Webster for J.Crew Anneka kitten heel pumps.

My Favorite Places: Paperdolls boutique, Paris

Paperdolls

When I started this blog, I mentioned that I was going to write about some of my favorite places in the world. My recent whirlwind 23-hour visit to Paris was a great place to start, since I knew I had to pop into Paperdolls boutique, one of my favorite places in Paris.

Music Monday #32 – “You Fucking Love It” by Dirty Pretty Things

Affilier

When the news came out that there was going to be another Libertines reunion that I was going to be missing, it got me going back and listening to all Libertines-related music. A personal favorite of mine was Carl Barat‘s next band, Dirty Pretty Things.

I know, I know. They will go down in the annals of history as a mediocre indie rock band. They were not nearly as good as The Libertines. But you know what? I don’t care. I love some of the music that sprang from this band, especially the songs off of their first album, Waterloo to Anywhere.

So here’s a raucous number off of that album for your Monday morning!

Shani Asks You Sundays – Go-to Foundation

Affilier

I’ve been foundation floundering for a while now. Currently, my skin has freaked out, possibly because it’s a different climate in New York every single freaking day, and it doesn’t know which way is up or down. It does know how to break out, though. This has posed an added challenge to my foundation needs.

So I ask you.

What is your go-to foundation?

like my By Terry Cover-Expert Foundation, but I don’t love it. Or, it’s not my holy grail. I’m testing a sample of Giorgio Armani Lasting Silk Foundation because Karima loves it, but I’m undecided. I have a sample of NARS Sheer Glow Foundation, but, eh? And I picked up By Terry Densiliss Foundation in Paris (I know, I owe you guys a haul), but I don’t think I love it as much as everyone else. And despite what I wrote, I picked up some samples of Chanel Perfection Lumière Velvet Foundation to test out. Verdict is still out. I guess I need to keep going!

Wishlist Wednesday #31 – Barbara Rihl bag

My recent trip saw me spending most of my time in the south of France, but my sister and I fit in a whirwind 23-hour layover in Paris. This left me with only a few hours of shopping time, but I managed to do significant damage nonetheless.

In my shopping frenzy, I found myself in the Marais, and came face to face with a store window with the most whimsical, adorable bags I had ever seen. Fortunately for my already abused credit card, the store had closed for the day, and I was leaving the next morning before it opened. Doesn’t mean that I am not now pining for a Barbara Rihl bag.
