Hey everyone! How’s it going? This is L. Jones once again writing for no reason…well let me change that. A few people have asked me recently about my T-shirt line and why I haven’t pushed it lately like in the beginning. 2 reasons:
1) Most of my attention had been focused on my other job, which is my main source of income. I need that to be right so I can be right with my passion: writing this blog and selling my product.
2) My blog was created not only to showcase my shirts and my ongoing struggles of creating styles, but to also be informative on other aspects of things I enjoy…i.e. music, fragrances and movies.
What I wanted to create was a one stop shop for finding out what’s new, what’s good and what’s hot. So how can I continue to give you the goods all the time? By adding new and fresh faces that think like me-kinda like my twins. So in the next few days I will be introducing a new face to DaWnYeLe! by the name of ….wait for it…. AFROKITTAY! She’s real cool and has a taste for the sexy and simple. I’ll still be around as well and sharing my thoughts to the masses. DaWnYeLe! is expanding! Yay!
So you’re probably wondering “what in the hell is this?”. Well folks, this is what you call fabulous artwork by the incomparable Jean Paul Gaultier in the form of a “well endowed” man with cologne inside. Aside from the obvious vision of the bottle, what’s inside is the thing that matters most. The fragrance is called Fleur De Male and it’s a winner. It was introduced in 2007 as a summer fragrance with notes of orange blossom and something called petitgrain flower. This is perfect cologne for the fall season for men to wear and to make the ladies swoon. And priced just right at about $40, its a must have in their collection. Ladies, get your man some smell good!
I was moseying around a department store yesterday and was stopped by one of the employees near the fragrance aisle. “excuse me, would you like to sample our new fragrance?” Of course I obliged but was immediately taken aback by the smell that crawled up my nose and died. Yeah, it smelled like horse sh**. I won’t say the name of the perfume, as it isn’t really important…plus I want to stay far away from it! I will, however, tell you about the one I did enjoy, appropriately titled THE ONE by Dolce & Gabbana. Sweet notes of peach, plum, amber and vanilla take over your senses at first sniff. This one is for the diva who wants to be noticed while out and about. The cost: about 50 bucks for a 1 ouncer. That’s all you really need to make your statement to the fellas. This one is truly DaWnYeLe cErTiFiEd!
When going out for a night on the town, what’s the one thing you have to make sure of? Well, other than your keys, wallet, purse and other default necessities. I’m talking about smelling good. What’s the point of looking fabulous and not smelling fabulous? That’s why I am going to start a new segment called (drumroll please…) That smell good ish of the week! I’m going to point out new (and older) fragrances that’ll complement your confidence and simple-sexy style, starting off with this week’s pick VIVA LA JUICY by Juicy Couture. This fragrance exudes passion and the goodlife. With hints of wild berries and mandarin mixed with honeysuckle and jasmine, this one is undeniably fresh. Although it’ll set you back about $60 (and about $100 for a giftset, ouch!) it’s well worth it. Ladies, men love a great smelling woman and this one will make them drool!
