  1. Sarah Zimbler says:

    Would love to win this! The bottle is so cute!

    P.S. Karen: I have had an amazing love affair with navy blue nail polish recently, but not as great a time getting it off my nails. Do you recommend a nail polish remover that works well with darker nail polish?

  2. Diana Kim says:

    I love Queen Latifah as a Cover Girl spokesperson! Oh, and I remember the old school days of when she was in Living Single. Ah..the 90’s πŸ™‚

  3. Ellie says:

    I think the bottle is adorable too! And bergamot is my favorite!
    On a totally unrelated note, I parted my hair on the other side yesterday- and it was AWESOME in a totally unexpected way.

    Hi Karen:
    Like your blog very much!
    Question 1: What are some safe(not too strong and anoying or offensive) fragrences that 99% of women will like? I have only 4 fragrances that I like, Knowing(esteelauder),Eternity(calvin.K),Jadore, Passion dance for women By Avon discontinues but this is my favorites of all(love to get a subsitute but don’t know how and where?
    Question 2: Are high heels safe for Knees in the long run(I am short and little over weight, I look better with heels)?
    Question3: Which part of body should we put perfume on, and also is it safe to put perfume on your skin/body or it should only be applied to cloths?

    Thanks so much!

    I have been watching the Queen Latifha Show sense she started. I love to receive Free Stuff and I love to enter any Sweepstakes to receive things. I would like to Win Queen Litefhs’s Fragence Cologne if at all possible. I am a Identical Twin to a girl, and I live in Milwaukee, and she lives in Chicago. We are approaching age 67 this year. I on the other hand is Retired, and she still works. I take of my Significant Other who unfortunately had a Stroke in 2010, and I take care of him. It’s been 4 Years now, and I just want a little Special something for Myself, to maybe smell good after a day’s work taking care of him, when I wind down for the day, or when we have to go out for Doctor’s appointments. That way I can feel very special and smell good too.
