TV Host Cognac Wellerlane poses for a photo-op in her Beauty Barbie Room

Hello darlings, Welcome back to Cognac's Corner Magazine as you are all well aware all my media events and red carpet events have been either cancelled or postponed. In an effort to stay positive, creative and productive I have been doing videos on shopping online and beauty!

Of course when things resume to being more normal I will be back on the red carpet in the meantime below is a review I have done on Victoria Secret, Bath and Body Works and Pink Sexy Fragrances:


Notes of Whipped Vanilla and Apple Blossom

the fragrance is pure vanilla extract and less of a marshmallow powder.


Refreshing mist for a hint of fragrance. Provocative and powerful, velvet petals has a decadent blend of clean, fresh, and aromatic notes. It is ideal for daily use.

This fragrance is soft, mellow, sweet and milky. I can detect the sandalwood base as well the says almond and I recognize the hazelmut which evolves into a floral note when it calms down. Its nice when you bathe at night before you go to sleep spray some on you and your pink boudoir sheets.


Juicy, candy-coated scents kick off the sweetest season. THE BODY LOTION IS hydrating formula delivers 24 hours of moisture for soft, scented skin. Pink Beauty tip: Layer up with your favorite mist. This scent empowerS, never overpowerS.

VANILLA SWIRL Smells like warm vanilla, sugar-coated petals and fresh snow.

Fragrance style: Gourmand Vanilla with Whipped Vanilla, Sugar Crystals and Snowy Petals. Limited edition 236 ml/8 fl oz Domestic


Sweet musky scent but it’s not cheap smelling. Doesn’t last long but luckily you get a very large amount! Perfect gift for a teenage girl.

Fragrance style: Warm with Soft Vanilla, Passionfruit & Toasted Coconut. IN MY OPINION THE COCONUT IS VERY DISTINCT

BATH AND BODY WORKS ROSE Eau de Parfum 1.7 fl oz / 50 mL

FRAGRANCE: Clean. Playful. Light. With notes of airy rose water blended with jasmine petals & creamy musk.

With a higher concentration of fragrance oils, this perfume gives you a more intense, longer-lasting scent for the ultimate, most luxurious indulgence.


This perfume smell like real tea roses. It doesn't have any of the fake artificial smell I've been kinda used to with products. It only takes a tiny amount and it last for at least 8-12 may be even 24 hours if not least on my skin anyway. This bottle is going to last me years and years. It is honestly a little overwhelming at first and I like it best after it has a chance to dry down. I know its supposed to be layered with other flowers and spices but i can only make out rose and thats not a bad thing at all. If you love perfume you should have this in your collection. It's a classic and I'm so glad I own it. ...... Well, I've owned my tea rose awhile now and I wanted to add to my review.

Kathlean de Monchy talks at Summer Brunch Bites and Beauty Inspirations at the Southampton Arts Center in Southampton, New York on August 25, 2018.

Innovation Scout Kathlean de Monchy who quite often shares trending insights on CNN invited all to Summer Brunch Bites and Beauty Inspirations at the Southampton Arts Center in Southampton, New York on August 25, 2018.

Guests were treated to delicious brunch bites and refreshments as they listened to guest speakers on the topic of health, exercise and anti aging.

Guest speakers included Dr. Erin Gilbert MD, PHD Board-certified dermatologist and neuroscientist Mary Ann Browning - CEO and Founder Browningfitness and Karen Mehiel-Five Pillars Yoga.

These ladies discussed new developments that increase hydration and elasticity in skin by over 30 percent, how this is achieved from a scientist's perspective Strength Training and Nutrition that works and how to de-stress to live longer.

Dr. Gilbert discussed the benefits of the supplement Athearn.

The founder of AETHERN®, Abili Falcó i Buixeda, was born in the Mediterranean seaside town of Roses, not far from the French border. It’s close to Figueres, the hometown of surrealist Salvador Dalí. Roses is also home to the restaurant of world renowned chef Ferran Adrià. Adrià is associated with “molecular gastronomy” although he likes to refer his cooking as deconstructivist: “Taking a dish that is well known and transforming all its ingredients.”

And with AETHERN®, Abili has taken inspiration from his countrymen… drawing upon art and imagination, like a great painter, and synthesizing that creativity with the brilliant gastronomic technique of a great chef. AETHERN®’s is transforming all its ingredients with its formulation, to create a skin care program that is about beauty from within, advanced nutrition feeding the skin what it needs to thrive, merging beauty with science.

After a successful career as CEO of Spain’s largest food distribution company, with an emphasis on quality first, Abili became fascinated with the possibility of creating the next generation of food supplements – one that eliminated the traditional, difficult chore of consuming multiple pills on a daily basis. As a result, BiorganicPharma, S.L. was born, with the artful, science-based notion to take food supplementation to an extraordinary new level: producing unique liquid formulas that can be consumed with convenience, taste and – most of all – great results.

Indeed, AETHERN® is a company committed to contributing to the wellbeing of people and Nature, developing innovative solutions and using natural ingredients.

Karen Mehiel discussed the importance of a daily routine of yoga.

Five Pillars Yoga was founded by Karen Mehiel, a self-described yoga devotee, and Olga Palladino, an experienced yoga teacher and practitioner. Karen and Olga yearned for a studio in their own neighborhood that would bring a more meaningful and balanced approach to the practice of yoga. They desired a deeper context as well as to share yoga “off the mat,” and founded Five Pillars in answer to this need. With an eye towards aesthetics and ambiance, they designed the studio space to be bright, inviting, and warm — a beautiful atmosphere in which to explore the beauty of yoga.

Karen and Olga met while working together in support of an NGO bringing comprehensive health care to a remote island community in the Democratic Republic of Congo. With a shared passion for service, they strive to continue supporting worthy environmental, humanitarian and charitable initiatives through fundraising and awareness building through yoga.
