Monday night saw some of the most beautiful, wealthy people making an appearance on the red carpet before the epic annual Met Gala for the costume wing of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.  The costume wing is the only part of the museum that has to fund itself, and so this $30,000-a-plate party makes up most of the department's funding.  It's also a chance for the rich and the famous in entertainment and fashion to come together in gorgeous, themed attire, and this year's theme was "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion &

Dreamy Aquarius is the visionary sign of the Zodiac.  Aquarians tend to be more interested in possibility and dreams than in concrete plans — something that's more staid Capricorn's style — and are often artistic types.  

Hey everyone, and welcome to this installment of the 'Fragrances of the Zodiac' post series!  This month we're going to be looking at fragrances for Scorpios!  Scorpio is the eighth sign in the zodiac, and is ruled by the planets Pluto and Mars. People born under this sign are known for their secretive, passionate natures — the Scorpion that symbolizes this sign is particularly apt; a Scorpio's shell is tough to get inside, and they can be vicious in defense of their secrets and the things they're passionate about.  Scorpios are often

Hey everyone!  Welcome back to the "Fragrances and the Zodiac" post series!  This time, we're going to focus on the sign Libra, which, as of this posting, has just begun.  The Sun is in Libra between September 23rd and October 23rd, and is symbolized by a set of scales.   Some of the most iconic film stars and musicians from Rita Hayworth to Talib Kweli are Libras, and this comes as no surprise, as Libras are often lovers of art, music, and poetry.  Romantics at heart, fair-minded Libras are the

Hey everyone!  It's time again for another edition of Fragrances of the Zodiac.  We're a tad late this month but don't worry!  It's not too late to get the Cancer in your life the perfect fragrance for them, based on their zodiac sign. Cancers are sensitive souls, who often love art, a good meal, and deep, caring emotional connections.  Unlike the dark and intense Scorpio later in the year, a Cancer as a water sign is a little more of a homebody or a homemaker — think the stereotypical Mom friend.  They're

Last month, I gave you some suggestions for scents suited for people born under the Zodiac sign of Taurus.  This month, I'm back with some suggestions for Geminis!  Gemini gets a bit of a bad rap among the Zodiac signs — people call Geminis indecisive, two-faced, and flighty, but often, they're quite wrong. The thing about this sign is that Geminis are air signs, ruled by the planet Mercury.  This makes them talkative, intellectual, and often innocent.  The sign is represented by a pair of twins, and often, Geminis feel

Hey everyone! Last month, I talked about perfumes and colognes that can be associated with the zodiac sign Aries. Well, last Thursday, the sun transitioned from the constellation Aries to the next sign in the Zodiac, Taurus the Bull. I have a lot of Taurian folks in my life, so I can definitely say that these folks make great, steadfast friends, and have a taste for high quality things in life. As such, I can recommend only the best in return. If you have a friend or loved one whose

With the start of spring, the traditional Zodiac calendar turns over to the sun sign of Aries. The first sign of the Zodiac, Aries people are known for being visionaries and leaders in their fields — people like Thomas Jefferson (who, fun fact, shares my birthday!), Russell Crowe, Marc Jacobs, Emma Watson, and Céline Dion — and for being somewhat combative. Fragrances that suit Aries people are often as sharp and intense as we are, so here’s a selection of fragrances that would make great birthday presents for the Aries
