How to Cope – Perfume Edition

How to cope with wanting a perfume you can’t afford

” … inspired by the French 75 cocktail, Cédrat Enivrant is for lovers of lemon and gin notes.”

Step 1) Go to the liquor store

Step 2) Find a small bottle of St. Germaine.

Step 3) Find a bottle of champagne.

Step 4) Drink St. Germaine and champagne cocktails until the St. Germaine bottle is empty. Put the bottle on your dresser and pretend it’s full of a nice perfume. Are the bottles similar? No! Do they both make me feel fancy? YES.


Kat’s makeup tips: Makeup removal


Longwear eye makeup can be surprisingly hard to remove. I suggest having a long, hysterical crying fit — it will cleanse your eyes from the inside out. Remove any streaks of mascara with a gentle micellar water or a dab of coconut oil.
