Someday; Inviting. Flirty. Hopeful.

The new Justin Bieber fragrance comes out on June 20, 2011 and I have been so excited to smell it!  Yesterday was great, got my new People Style and Watch Magazine in the mail.  Of course, I couldn't wait and I had to start flipping through the mag.  And there it was......a scented strip where I could FINALLY smell the J Biebs fragrance. :)  "SOMEDAY is why we never say never.  It's the reason we never give up, the reason we never give in.  It's a place in our hearts that can't be broken, where our dreams always come true and the moment we'll NEVER LET GO."  Now, as a true Biebs fan as you know, I loved this little section talking about the fragrance.  It plays off of his well known saying, NEVER SAY NEVER and I also liked how he tied in his song NEVER LET GO.  If you haven't listened to either, check them and give it a chance :)

Being so curious as to what the pop teen would come up with for his idea of what a woman "should" smell like, I wasn't suprised at the scent.  It is light, sweet, with a slight floral scent.  To give you an idea of what it smells smells extremely similar to Secret Wonderland by Bath and Body Works.  Kinda random that I know this but after initially smelling the Someday sample, it smelt exactly like my roomie, Carissa.  And I had given her the Secret Wonderland lotion and spray for Christmas. In case you don't know what scent I'm talking about, here's a picture of the collection.

Now......the cool part about his fragrance is that absolutely all of the proceeds are going to charity.  I think that that is an awesome thing to do.  Because you know every little teenage girl (yes, including myself) will want to go out and purchase this fragrance simply for the fact that Justin created this.  So you can just imagine how much MOOLAH is going to be made off of this thing.  So, kudos to you Justin for stepping up and doing something good for others.  But on the flip side, I'm sure that a lot of people can't just shell out $50 for a fragrance like it's nothing.  So at least there is an alternative for people as well where they can still smell as good as the Biebs intended hahahaha.  Now the question I get Someday or Secret Wonderland?!

side note: I checked out Bath and Body Works' website and they are having a sale going on right now for Secret 3 get 3 free!!! What a steal!!! :)

I can't believe I am FINALLY doing this! I have sat and contemplated writing a blog for quite some time.  I am excited beyond belief for making this blog my own and exploring new things and ideas.

If you know me, you know YouTube has been quite an obsession of mine for the past few years.  I am addicted to watching How to and style videos and have been completely inspired and have learned so much from other people's videos and blogs.  I love watching product reviews and tutorials and they have definitely given me much guidance over the past few years.  So why not pass it on? I am a fashion and makeup LOVER!!!!!  I always have been.  I can actually remember my first experience with makeup.  I used to wear this dark blue eyeshadow that I took from my mom's bathroom and I would literally put a blue line along my lash line. !!!!!!!!!! I wish I had pictures of what I must have looked like.  But man oh man have I come a long way since the sixth grade.  But, not without testing and learning how to use different products and such over the years. 

And so, this is where my blog comes in to my life.  I just want this to be a place where I can share my thoughts, current favorites, regrets and all things Aimee.  I have been inspired by so many other young women and I know that if one person reads this blog and can learn something or feel better or anything, that would make me happy.  I am just hear to share my life with others and just have fun with it!

Now, about the name.  AHAHAHAHA this is what took FOREVER to figure out.  I am such an indecisive person and it literally took me months to pick out a name. wasn't even myself that came up with it.  Megan, who is a dear friend of mine one night was over and it seriously just popped out of her mouth.  PURE GENIUS!!! To amplify means to make larger, stronger, more powerful, and/or to expand.  So, we added part of my name in there to make it unique :)  Again, I'm here to help inspire others to be the best version of themselves, to love who they are and embrace life! So the name is perfect to me.  

Happy reading and hope you enjoy future posts!
