I got a bottle of Beyonce’s Pulse at my internship over the summer. We frequently received little packages from companies hoping for a shoutout in our glossy pages. Most of the time, my bosses would just glance it over and pass it straight on to the interns. Hooray!
Not that I don’t trust Bey, but I was a bit skeptical to take this. The last perfume we got was Body by Burberry (of course my boss kept that one), and since NO ONE had claimed Pulse by the end of the day, I figured something must be off.
WRONG. Pulse smells like freshly squeezed grapefruit juice with the essence of ripe grapefruit plus grape and fruit undertones. Lucky for me, I think this combination is delightful. So now instead of eating half a grapefruit for breakfast, I spritz on a bit of Bey Bey’s product before I leave for class and get my diet on by osmosis. Welcome to the 21st century.
As I was looking through Glamour’s tumblr, I saw this outfit by McQueen’s successor, Sarah Burton. Since my brain is still hooked on Beyonce from the previous post, I immediately thought of her outfit (or was it Sasha Fierce’s?) at the end of the video for Sweet Dreams.
