Rihanna On Cover Of Marie Claire: Moving Forward And Being Happy Again

10 Dec

Rihanna is featured in the December 2010 issue of Marie Claire UK.

She’s the toast of the music industry and the hottest talent around. Introducing our stunning December cover star, Rihanna. We caught up with the Rude Boy superstar to talk about surviving the bad times, learning to love her imperfections, and how she is happier and stronger than ever.

In the issue Rihanna talks about moving on & being happy again:

“I feel like I smile for real this time. The smiles come from inside, and it exudes in everything I do. People feel my energy is different. When I smile they can tell that it’s pure bliss and not just a cover up.”

She also talks about her wake up call:

“I needed that wake-up call in my life. I needed a turning point, and that’s what God was giving to me. All this terrible stuff they say to you, it breaks you down. [But] once you’re back on your feet – if you ever make it back on your feet – that’s the ultimate achievement.”

Rihanna also talks about her breakup with Chris Brown:

“Eventually, I remember waking up one day and I knew I was over it. One day, I remember I was in New York at the Trump Hotel and I woke up and I just knew I was over it.”

Read more from Rihanna’s interview and view photos at MarieClaire.co.uk.

Summary: Rihanna share’s her personal side of what she went through in her relationship with Chris Brown. She gets very personal about herself. As well as share’s where she is right now in the present part of her life.

I absolutely know in life we all grow out of something just to grow right back into being happy again. Life is always throwing curve balls at us. The question is are we willing to face things head on. Or do we just dodge the curve balls. Never learning from our mistakes. Mistakes are nothing more then lessons that allow us to gain maturity as we age. True wisdom comes from being in a bad place in life. Without mistakes how would we learn and grow as individuals you can’t.

Rihanna looks radiant and stunning in her photographs shot with Mikael Jansson for Marie Claire cover and interview spread. I guess being happy and stronger then ever will do that to any person.

Remember when life has dealt you a situation that seems totally impossible to get out of. That’s just life reminding you that you have hit a stage in your life that you grown up and ready to move to something bigger and better. Just we do not look at life’s preview that way.

So check out Rhianna on the cover of Marie Claire Co UK. So go check out your nearest news stands if you haven’t already.  I picked my copy up at the bookstore!

Gift Ideas: Gucci Guilty Fragrance Experience The Thrill Of Forbidden

9 Dec

Gucci

Established in Florence, Italy in the 1920s, Gucci is one of the world’s most coveted brands that understands that fashion and fragrance go hand in hand.

A purveyor of hip, modern designs for men and women, Gucci has elevated their minimalist signature monogram to iconic status, often splashing it across the season’s new It bag, assortment of sportswear, stiletto heels, and fragrances.

Ranging from sultry and sexy to sweet and sugary, the couture scents are—much like the coveted label’s clothing and accessories—instant classics.

Gucci sits atop the pinnacle of chic while riding the waves of a powerful fashion renaissance—and their bellissima blends are a constant reminder of the sweet smell of success.

Guilty

Made for the woman who shatters expectations, this fragrance imbues a feeling of power, a sense that she can attain whatever she wants—even the thrill of the forbidden.

A sheer, floral-oriental fragrance, it opens with a bright burst of citrus and a dangerous hint of black pepper.

This arresting introduction gives way to full-throttle femininity as its heart pulses with fruity and floral notes.

The fragrance dries down to a rich, ambery base with notes of patchouli.

The overall effect is young, stylish, and eminently wearable—a daring edge of sexiness and sensuality that captures the essence of Gucci.

The stunning bottle fuses glass and metal, a feature revealed through Gucci’s signature interlocking “G” characters.

At the center of the iconic logo’s letterforms, the bottle’s gleaming metallic surface is elegantly cut away to expose the bottle’s glass interior.

Notes:

Mandarin, Pink Pepper, Peach, Lilac, Geranium, Amber, Patchouli.

Style:

Daring. Rich. Sexy.

Summary: Guilty is the new Gucci fragrance that will be available from September 2010. It is designed for the glamorous, daring, brave, and very sexy girls who like to party and enjoy themselves.

The face of the advertising campaign is Evan Rachel Wood, singer and actress.

Gucci Guilty contains the notes of mandarin, pink pepper, peach, lilac, geranium, amber and patchouli.

A couple of spritz would be nice to wear before going to your office and a little more when working on fields. Its scent is not that long lasting as other Eau de Toilette. It may last for a few hours and a re-application would be wise until midnight. It’s a perfect head turner for everyone and a fashionable wear of the user.

This is my top list of 5 perfumes that I purchased this month and wanted to share it with you who haven’t had a chance to check it out.

The bottle itself is substantial and gorgeous, definitely vanity table worthy.  I find it almost too pretty to touch—but I’m doing it anyway because I’m totally addicted to Guilty right now and I don’t feel the slightest bit guilty, yet!

Gucci Guilty makes a great gift ideas for every occasion. With the holiday’s coming up makes a great stocking stuffer!

Summary: I picked up a few albums last night. I am really love my Ipod it goes everywhere I go. I am loving all the new music that came out this year in 2010. So I needed to purchase the albums to update my cd collection for this year.

Have to have the update in new music to keep those workouts powerful at the gym. Always adding new music to keep the Ipod on point! Never getting bored with my Ipod!

Also, for the day’s that I am working extra hard on my Pr stuff. Without music in ones life is like a song without a melody~

I am a huge fan of Christina Aguilera. I own every single album this was one I didn’t have so now my Christina cd collection is now complete.

I absolutely love her music and wanted to share what I love from my personal collection of Cd’s. So I picked her  Bionic album up last night at Target $17.99.

Nicki Minaj Pink Friday Includes 13 New Songs with guest appearance from Rihanna, Drake Will.i.am, Kanye West and more. At Walmart for $11.88.

I also picked up El Debarge’s new album Second Chance. It contains limited edition bonus disc with three new holiday songs. Walmart’s price was $11.88.

As well as Fantasia’s back to me new album includes the hit “Bittersweet” Plus “Man of the house,” “I’m doin’ me” and “Even angels” from season 2 of her VH1 reality series Fantasia For Real, Premiering this fall. Found it at Target for $12.99.

I had a hard time finding the main cd I was looking forward to purchasing that is Eric Benet’s “Lost In Time”

Although this wasn’t on my list I picked up at Walmart. Beyonce’s “I Am World Tour” only at walmart 108 shows, 78 cities, 32 countries, 6 continents, 1.1 million fans features full concert dvd for only $10.00.

I spoiled myself yesterday. Now I will feel complete once I get my hands on Eric Benet’s cd “Lost In Time” as well as Kandi Burruss album “Kandi Koated.”  Since I was fortunate to meet them in person gotta have those two cd’s!

These are a few of my Christmas list items to myself. Picked up my perfumes as well that I had on my list.

Music makes great stocking stuffer’s for Christmas as well as awesome stocking stuffers!
