Red velvet cake is a very sentimental item in my life. I kissed the man that was to be my husband for the first time over a red velvet cake and my wedding cake was red velvet and every special occasion we have good ole’ Southern red velvet cake. I was really happy to find this product even though I really don’t want to smell like cake batter. However, this gel makes me really happy and smells like the rich, real thing.

Philosophy Red Velvet Cake Ulra-Rich-3-In-1 Shower Gel, Shampoo, and Bubble Bath is a multi-tasking bottle crammed full of sweetness. It smells like a real homemade red velvet cake but doesn’t leave you smelling like one all day. It just makes the shower into a bakery for a short time. It is rich, sweet, vanilla-ish and buttery and 100% yummy. It smells edible. I’m usually sick of it by the time I am finished with a 16 ounce bottle. But, it does make me happy while I have it. It makes me think of my honey. You can gag now.

The formula is very high foaming. I have used it as shampoo and didn’t hate it. I usually use it as a shower gel but it makes a wonderful bubble bath. It reatails for $16 and you can get it at sephora.com or philosophy.com. It won’t make you fat either even though it seems like it would, inhaling all that creamy sweetness.

Seems as if Dior and Givenchy accidentally got some wires crossed for their Fall 2008 Color Collections. Givenchy has released some of their items and they are a bit “dandy”. This new Givenchy Pocket Beauty Case plays along with the 1930’s, old Hollywood androgyny, and 1970’s Faye Dunaway vibe. This is a new adorable silver Givenchy logo-ed “pocket watch” styled beauty case. It houses a dewy shimmering sheer pink highlighter that can be used on lips, cheeks, chest, or shoulders. My vote is for lips. It looks really pretty on lips and plus it is fun to pop out for reapplication. It is limited edition and retails for $55.

Dandy enough for a lady.
