foreverlily perfumeDid you know that smell is the most closely tied sense to your memory?  Brides-to-be want everything from their dress, hair and make-up to their flowers, cake and venue to be perfect, but what about the most memory triggering element of all…their perfume? 

Recently, I found a fragrance called foreverlily that’s intended to open the heart and inspire hope, which I thought couldn’t be more perfect for a bride on her wedding day. 

The fragrance is an enveloping Oriental blend with a top note dominated by clove and sweet accents of lemon and lychee. The crispness of fig and the feminine presence of stargazer lily are equally balanced in the middle note.  The base note consists of cedar wood, vanilla, amber and sandalwood. 

I’m very picky when it comes to perfumes, but foreverlily completely charmed me.  The scent is so unique.  It’s clean, warm and romantic.  I liked it immediately, but I fell more and more in love with it throughout the day.

fall jewelry trendThis fall nothing will make you feel more glamorous than jewelry with deep, rich, autumn colors.  Combined with the ever-so sleek and chic emerald-cut stones, this trend is being called Russian Folkloric because it bridges the boho mix of casual color with the over-the-top sparkling luxury that will be the major look for holiday jewels.   Here are some of Marvelous Girl’s picks under $25.

1)  Smoky Quartz Ring from Chadwicks ($23.99)

2)  Sterling Silver Garnet Stud Earnings from Overstock ($24.99)

3)  Deco Style Black Stone Brooch at Bonanzle ($14.99)

Go Bold:  Deep cool colors (like amethyst, sapphire and emerald) and warm, burnt colors (such as amber and citrine) will really pop against your fall apparel.  But the trick is to make sure the stones are large and eye-catching.

Prom Hair3Hair is one of the most important elements to completing your formal look.  For those of you who can’t afford to go to the salon this year, Marvelous Girl is bringing the salon to you.  Hairstylist, Penny Doster at Hollywoood And Mane, provided some simple, costless tips to get the perfect do-it-yourself prom/wedding hair.

“This season it’s all about the feminine romantic look, which is so easy to do at home,” explained Penny.  

1)  Flat iron your hair straight

2)  Tease the crown area for a bit of volume

3)  Pull sections from either side of the temples to the back of the head

4)  Twist the two sections together a couple of times and begin bobby pinning

5)  Add some smoothing serum to minimize flyaways 

6)  Finally, add an accessory like a flower or a decorative pin/comb

TIP:  Match the color of your bobby pins as closely as possible to your hair color; unless you’re looking for them to stand out.

“A common mistake people make is washing their hair.  Your natural oils will help the style set and stay, so it’s best not to shampoo the day of the big event,” suggested Penny.

If you have hair questions for Penny, email yourstyle@pennyathollywoodandmane.com.

yatai1In Los Angeles the words “gourmet” and “low-cost” seem like oxymorons.  Well that’s no longer the case when it comes to Asian-tapas bar, Yatai.  This West Hollywood eatery has excellent food, fantastic service and a fabulous atmosphere…all at a reasonable price!

Last night my boyfriend and I visited the restaurant for the second time and were once again thoroughly impressed with our dining experience.  After a few rounds of drinks and several dishes, the bill was only $80.  Why go to Koi, which is overpriced and has mediocre service, when you can eat just as well and spend half as much at Yatai?  

Here’s a few dish suggestions:

  • Tempura pumpkin w/curry salt – $5
  • Spicy tuna over crispy rice – $6
  • Bite-sized rib-eye steak w/caramelized onions – $16

When the weather is nice, Yatai also has outdoor seating.  The restaurant is located at 8535 W. Sunset Blvd.  Parking can be a problem, but it’s so marvelous it’s worth it.
