.

Kanebo Coffret d’Or launched Soft Glamorous Eyes with four variations in fall 2015. They were followed by six limited-edition variations in holiday 2015 and two limited-edition variations in spring 2016. (I don’t think any other eyeshadow palette series from Coffret d’Or features more variations.) Today we will be looking at 01 Beige Variation.

Ayura Meditation Body Balm Holiday 2012 Bodycare 1

.

Ayura‘s Spirit of Ayura and the fragrance from the Meditation bodycare range are two of the best fragrances I have ever come across. I have talked about Spirit of Ayura in my posts on my three favorite fragrances and Ayura’s Night Meditation, and the most detailed description of the scent I have given so far is in my reply to a reader’s comment.
