Major Thrill: I'm featured in an article for Allure Magazine's October issue!

A couple of months ago, I was lucky enough to have been interviewed for the October 2011 issue of Allure Magazine by Contributing Executive Beauty Editor Alyssa Hertzig for her perfume article, "Bottled Seduction". I'm there along with several others including  fellow bloggers (and gals I adore) Victoria from  EauMG and Annie from Blogdorf Goodman, as well as my good friend, perfumer Mandy Aftel.

I am thrilled and honored to be included in Alyssa's article and to be a part of Allure Magazine's October issue, even if in a small way. I've been an Allure reader for a very long time and I don't think I've missed a single issue. So if you love perfume and/or me, or if you just like me and love perfume, whichever, please pick up the October issue of Allure Magazine and read "Bottled Seduction".

The perfect cover model for my first print interview [brows are everything]

  3. Congratulations, Carrie (and friends)!! I'm not a regular Allure reader, but I'm definitely going to go pick up a copy. To be featured in the issue with Olivia Wilde on the cover is pretty darn sweet!

  4. Joanne- thank you, doll! I am the biggest House fan on the planet and love Olivia's character on the show, so I get an extra thrill that she's on the cover. :)

  7. Nobody is more deserving than you (and Victoria, Annie, and Mandy)!

    I enjoyed the article immensely and will be calling my mom to tell her that I am lucky to know the wonderful women quoted in the article (she reads Allure too, and will probably end up hanging up the pages and then asking if she can make you all dinner)! =D

  8. Victoria- I'm SO HAPPY that you're a part of this too. Before I found out you were, I was really crossing my fingers that you would be. :) Homies 4 Life!

  9. Joey- thank you! My mom is having a heart attack over the whole thing, and honestly, that's what is making me the happiest. In my mom's eyes, I've really made it now. We've always had very beauty-oriented women in our family, so it's a big moment of pride for us. :) And if your mom wants to cook me dinner, I will happily accept!

  16. Totally buying this! I also love the cover -- OW looks kind of '70s with the soft bangs and minimal eye makeup. Pretty pretty!

  17. Congratulations! It made me smile to read how happy and proud your mom is, too. I'm so glad they interviewed all of you! (And of course I will have to pick up this issue, even though I don't normally read Allure - so you are already increasing their readership by at least one!). :)

  25. I am a new follower and was excited to see you featured in this Allure article. I knew your name and blog when you'd leave comments on Joey's blog. HA, I'm not stalking you, I promise!

    You gave great advice on fragrance collecting - totally inspired me, thanks!

    That's just tremendous as I have read Allure since it's debut issue back in 1991. That would be a dream come true for me.

    CHEERS!!
