Beauty Professor Office Hours...They Have Returned!

Above: The illustrious Cartier La Panthere.
Happy Tuesday, one and all!  I am excited to share my latest installment of Office Hours, a post dedicated to beauty-oriented bits and pieces.

First up, I had to give a preemptive mention to the stunning Cartier fragrance, La Panthere.  In my initial experience, this complex scent features a warm musk and soft, fruity sillage with intense lasting power. I love that it feels both unique yet entirely wearable and, upon a full day of wear yesterday, realized that I couldn't refrain from smelling my pulse points.  Full review soon! 

Next, a beauty event announcement for those who live in or near Orange County, California.  Next Thursday, 5/29, the Amore Pacific counter at Neiman Marcus at Fashion Island (in Newport Beach) will be hosting a Master Class Event from 12:00-1:30 PM.  Held in the gorgeous Mariposa within the store, this is an exclusive VIP Event and features an educational session on the famed Korean skincare and beauty line; also, with the purchase of three products from the Time Response collection, you will receive a gift valued at $300.  I love the Amore Pacific line (my reviews on products from the line can be found HERE and HERE) and plan on attending...hope to see you there!
To attend, contact Irene Williams at Fashion Island Neiman Marcus at: (949) 759-1900 EXT 2150.

Also, as a proud RoC Ambassador, I am happy to share the RoC Academy link with you. Designed to provide deeper understanding of basic anti-aging history, ingredients and science, this interactive experience for savvy beauty influencers and consumers also includes expert video content from top New York City dermatologist, Dr. Erin Gilbert. The lessons and videos included the program will break down common skincare myths as well as provide professional advice on anti-aging ingredients.  

Please find the direct link to begin exploring the RoC® ACADEMY™ below!

Additionally, Urban Outfitters is currently will be having a friends and family beauty sale (5/28- 6/1/14).  Although this retailer is often associated with stylish clothing, the Urban Outfitters beauty department has grown considerably in the recent months, featuring niche and difficult-to-locate lines including Lime Crime, Armour Beauty, Bliss, Stila and Anastasia and it also holds the distinct honor of being the largest retail US distributor of Korean brands including Peripera (most recently reviewed on BP HERE), The Face Shop, Tony Moly and Mizon.  Simply use the code UOBEAUTY for 20% off your online order!

In other sales news, Nordstrom's Half Yearly Sale for Women and Kids began this week and runs through June 1st and Neiman Marcus is currently in the midst of their Real Deal Sale with up to 40% off of new looks in CUSP (my favorite!) as well as other departments in the store.  I have already imbibed in both sales this week...what will YOU be picking up? 

Finally, I wanted to share some images from r/S the Conference, which I had the privilege of being invited to and attending last month in Dallas, Texas.  Comprised of passionate beauty, style and lifestyle bloggers from all over the world, this weekend was dedicated to brand meetings, educational sessions and the opportunity to interface with like-minded individuals who fill their days with creating content to share with their readers.

Bottom Line:  I hope you enjoyed this edition of Office Hours.  Can't wait to hear what is new with you!  Good things ahead on the blog, including my latest video featuring my 14 favorite nude lip color options...it should be live in the next day or two ; )
