Peyton Manning and Eva Longoria?

19 Mar

Now now now. Settle down your gossip hormones. No, nothing is going on between these two. But the fact is, I’m a sports fanatic. A real, die-hard, ESPN is on my presets, sports fanatic. And it is kind of hard to get men to read a blog about fashion and makeup unless you throw some sports in once in a while. I like to cater to everyone. I’m an all around cool kinda girl. I try to make everyone happy.

So, not to bore the females fans of my column for long, just a quick blurb. I cannot believe Peyton is going to go to Denver! The town must be a mess. Tim Teebow, the youngest winning quarterback to ever win the Heisman Trophy, is their idol. They love him. They worship him. (No puns intended there). And now, Peyton, a God in his own way, will be going to this town to try and bring Superbowl back to that city. What will happen to Tim? A trade probably. I think Teebow still has some work to do as far as getting up to a premier NFL quarterback level. But can he? Absolutely. I’m not really sure what Denver was thinking. I’m a Gator’s fan so I’ll keep an eye on Tim. Other than that, it’s my Pittsburgh Steelers all the way. Hey, I’m in FASHION! Bleeding black and gold is what I do… and it’s tres chic! A fan with fashion function-ability. I wish the best to Peyton, but I hope Teebow finds a football home and kicks ass all the way to the Superbowl. Well, only to get beat by my Steelers, of course.

……and in other glamour news:

My daughter had a doctor’s appointment today. The appointment was at an office that is ALWAYS busy and is jam packed with people–both patients AND employees. Because I never like to leave the house without a perfume on, I actually think ahead that I’ll be in a room with several other individuals and don’t want to sneeze someone out with a scent that will bother someone, be overpowering, or cause a wheezing frenzy. AH HA! I actually have a perfume just for these situations. In April of 2010, Eva Longoria Parker launched her perfume, “Eva”, for just those kind of people. Eva is actually one of those super-sensivitive people when it comes to fragrances. And being on airplanes, at different filming sets, restaurants, and other places, she’s constantly running into a scent or a combination that would send her into an allergy fit. She told her agent she envied stars that had signature scents, but just couldn’t wear one herself. So her agent suggested she make one herself with notes of fragrances that were not irritating to most perfume-sensitive people. And that she did!!

The resulting scent is a warm, citrusy “day fragrance” and, according to the star, is the the anti-perfume perfume. “I wanted something clean and fresh. Something that smelled like you just got out of the shower. And that’s how I came up with the scent,” said the actress in an interview by StyleWatch during her launch. The fragrance is a feminine combination of citruses, bergamot tea, neroli, aldehydes, jasmine, lily of the valley, freesia, leather musk, amber and sandalwood. I actually smelled the scent first in a magazine perfume sampler and fell in love with it immediately. I did my research, found out who was going to sell it, and wrote down its release date. The day came, and I got it! It is definitely a light scent, but doesn’t lose its essense throughout the day. I put it on today at 10am and even now, after a warm day and a slight nap, I can still smell it on my skin. It’s not really a nighttime sultry, sensual scent. But for the daytime?…. When you might be going out where people are gathered? It is THE go-to scent.

And since we are talking beauty AND sports, let me just mention that Eva was married to NBA superstar Tony Parker for three years. Tony is a 6’2″ guard for the Sanantonio Spurs. Eva has been working in the arts and entertainment industry since 1999, but is best known for her role as Gabrielle Solis on Deperate Housewives.

See? There is nothing wrong with being a girly-girl who likes her hats, heels, jeggings and jewels and can scream “TOUCHDOWN” the loudest at the local pub!!
