What Is The Secret Behind Victoria Secret

20 Oct

Through out the years many have been curious about what is the secret behind Victoria Secret.

Men fantasized that maybe it’s because the hot lingerie is hiding something secretive that they would love to expose.

Many women thought that the person behind this great empire had to be a great woman, but the truth behind Victoria Secret is that was created by a man.

The founder of Victoria Secret was  a man named Roy Raymond in 1977 in San Francisco, California.

Roy Raymond’s amazing idea came forth as he sat uncomfortably in a lingerie store while waiting for his wife. His idea was to formulate a place where men can shop without feeling uncomfortable.

Victoria Secret was designed in an environment of trying to make men feel comfortable while shopping for their ladies.

The design of the stores came with features such as wood-paneled walls and Victorian details.

The creator Roy Raymond felt this would give men an opportunity to feel comfortable while shopping for seductive lingerie for their girlfriends or wives.

You would not find racks or shelves of Victoria Secret lingerie, but more of a simple yet unique form of putting bras and panties on display.

The lingerie was placed together in single styles and mounted on the wall in frames.

The first store was opened in Stanford Shopping Center and followed with 3 other stores and a mail order catalog.

Just after 5 years Roy Raymond sold Victoria Secret to the Limited in 1982.

Victoria Secret`s is known for their elegant yet beautiful Angels.

Victoria Secret Angels bring sexy and confidence down the runway. Fashion shows are always enticing where you get to see all of your favorite Angels.

Being one of the top sales person’s for the Seattle store that I worked at my experience working for the retailer was pretty amazing.

I understand what the brand is about and can appreciate the products that  we come to love as some of our must haves over the years.

I learned and understand the technology that goes into every bra and panty that is part of the brand.

The various sensuous fabrics. Amazing details that go into every bra and panty. You can’t help but love the  beautiful designs that are put into ever part of the line. You admire the perfect balance of colors.

It also provides the perfect balance of styles, shape and lift sizes to every body type.

The invisible technology that allows every woman to look more flattering in their clothing.  Besides who loves those nasty panty lines and bra lines that shows up through the clothing we wear.

The invisible technology gives the everyday woman a more desired look. Which then leave’s her feeling good, looking good and walking away feeling sexier then ever.

That was my experience working in the Northwest Seattle store in Kirkland Washington.

The make up line and hair line are quite incredible and we can not forget the fragrance line as well that the store provides for their lingerie line that they provide to each and every client.

I actually always called my store and every Victoria Secret Store out there and we cannot forget the online store. “The one stop shop!” It provides everything under one roof! Making your shopping experience a more pleasurable one.

Lastly, most women who buy the brand don’t realize that if you have a problem with any bra strap or unraveling the company is really good about giving you new straps or even replacing it if not out of a certain time period of course.

So the next time you are in your nearest Victoria Secret store or online you will understand the brand and come to appreciate it.

The secret is…. It was owned and started by a man!  Although he sold it. We have to always remember how it got started being that history is history for a reason.

My staple product’s from the store is the push up bra’s and the invisible lace panties. I love the way they feel on my skin. I love the amazing fabric they use to give a sexy yet feminine look to my lingerie.

I respect the technology that goes into every bra never leaving me looking bad under my clothes.

Lastly, I love the comfortable panties that were created with invisible line technology that was created for a no show look.

For those that don’t realize that the body sprays were created for layering. So your fragrance last throughout  the whole day. Without having to constantly spray spray spray.

Leaving you empty before you get started. So the body lotion and body spray go hand in hand for a reason.

Now for those that never shopped online or had a clue they had a website now you do!

The many reason’s why I call it the “One Stop Shop!” They provide and amazing collection of clothing from casual all the way to business, and for those who need something fancy for a nice time out.

You cannot forget their amazing bathing suit line that has become very popular in recent years.

How about their coats and shoes. I mean they sometimes are to die for! I do anything to get those kind of shoes! They came together with many other popular brands and designers. To show case their personal designs as well.

I hope you enjoyed my outlook with a little bit of history and job experience down to personally loving the brand as my favorite store of all time! I no longer work for the brand and I haven’t for a couple of years now.

I hope my post has allowed you to understand and appreciate the brand a little bit easier. For those that don’t have time to shop. Why not visit your online store instead.

Now with help understanding the brand a little bit better it should allow for a more pleasurable shopping experience.

What are some of the things you love and can’t live without?

We all have at least one thing that we love from this brand! So no excuse that you can’t fit the clothing sizes. Which was many of the excuse’s I got while working for Victoria Secret for some it may hold true but there is always something for you regardless.

That’s where the beauty side of the store come’s into play. The fragrance, hair care line, right down to the beautiful make up designed by the Victoria Secret Model’s personally. The glamour you want right down to the shades you need!

This brand makes great stocking stuffer’s as well as great gift’s for many to enjoy!

However, the fragrance part of the store is for everyone no matter what walk of life you come from. You cannot put a size on fragrance.

Everyone loves to smell nice at least I hope!

Aquage Salon Products Rock!

17 Oct

A fantastic new line by Aquage Biomega is the first hair care system designed to replenish and replicate hair’s natural oils with a potent, highly active infusion of nature’s lightweight Omenga-rich oils and plant extracts that penetrate deep into the hair shaft to replenish, repair and renew.”

The brand also says that previously, products could only contain a “blessing” of natural oils because they would separate in the water-based formulas. That’s why Aquage created this brand—to counteract that. If you have dry, damaged hair BIOMEGA Moisture Shampoo will counteract that.

Aquage haircare and styling innovations bring you the best of sea and science – combining the highest quality, professional grade ingredients with today’s most advanced haircare technology. The healing benefits of our exclusive Algaeplex sea botanicals in each Aquage product nurture, hydrate, strengthen and protect your hair beautifully.

I love love love this product line. One of a few that I have under the sink in my kitchen. I love the fact my hair has been bleached with highlights and I have no signs of split ends since using this line. My hair has such a wonderful softness and shine to it.

My favorite product of all times by this line is Beyond Shine. Many hair lines say it will do something awesome to your hair. I never seen a product line that is true to heart.

What Curly Hair Type Are You?

8 Oct


Do you suffer from curly hair that’s dry, damaged, frizzy, or uncontrollable? Are you open to trying something new? The curly girl method (also referred to as “no-poo”) is based off the book “Curly Girl” by Lorraine Massey. The nickname “no-poo” alludes to not using a sulfate shampoo, because of sulfates’ power to strip the hair of its natural oils. Once you take away the sulfates your hair can retain its natural moisture. Like many beauty regimens, the results vary from person to person, but this one just might work for you. So, say good-bye to the frizz and split ends and hello to softer healthy curls! 

Sulfate free products are so much nicer and easier on the hair. It allows for natural moisture to come back into the hair giving your curls more definition.

I personally found my staple products. What are yours?

Whatever your curls maybe and you feel like your not getting the best from your products. Google and educate yourself about sulfate free  hair products.  You will see how much damage sulfates leaves on the hair over year’s of use and abuse. Find more natural hair products that are lighter weight on your hair. Check out the curly girl method as well as read the book.
