Spadaro‘s exotic fragrances has been beguiling wearers (and anyone who’s been near them) for years. each scent representing an alluring destination, creator Kim Spadaro has travelled. If you’ve loved or experienced their sweet citrusy Sole Nero, sultry floral Doux Amour, or the sensuous and almost hedonistic Noche del Fuego, then you’ll love their newest launch, Beso Del Mar (Kiss of the Sea). Inspired by a trip to the spanish island of Majorca, the new scent boasts notes that will both sooth and awaken a fire inside of you. The new fragrance is described as “Irresistible Bergamot gains unexpected depth when mixed with mysterious Patchouli and an exotic blend of Sandalwood, Vanilla and Honey spiked with Paprika and Saffron.

Brunch w/ COCOTIQUE Beauty Subscription Box

I had the great pleasure of enjoying an amazing Brunch with Cocotique, the monthly beauty subscription box for women of color. The brunch gave all attendees the opportunity to get to know the ladies behind Cocotique, some of the brands that are available in the beauty box, enjoy a delicious fall brunch and go home with the October Cocotique box.

I had the unique pleasure of sitting right next to Dr. Heather Woolery-Lloyd from Specific Beauty, who educated me on the science of beauty and how she became to be a successful Dermatologist and global skin care thought leader as well as getting to pick the brain of Cocotique Founder, Dana Hill.

Along with the great conversation, we enjoyed make-up touch ups and color matching from Cover FX, skin consultations with Dr. Woolery-Lloyd, and mini-manicures and relaxing massages from Harper Monroe Mobile Spa and the most delicious breakfast Fritata thanks to The National NYC, where the brunch was held.

We had the chance to get better acquainted with the following beauty brands: sofn’free GroHealthy, Lift Lab, Tulip Perfume, and Clo-vee Products.

We were also told that Cocotique is partnering with the amazing Chef Roble to curate a box very soon, so you definitely want to take advantage of that.
