Schick Quattro For Women Summer & Contest

Hello Darlings, “Autumn is coming. It may be the sneakiest season; it disguises itself with warm winds and late evening golden light.  It wraps itself in colors that look like fire and the slowly fading sound of crickets at night.  It comes without warning and without apology and before you know it, the air is cold and the leaves are falling and the Summer you thought you were enjoying is just a memory.  Sly.  So sly.” – Tyler Knott Gregson 

Feet in the ocean

As the summer has come and gone and the winds have slowly started to cool, we bid farewell to the summer of 2014. To celebrate the beautiful summer memories, Schick Quattro for Women is excited to giveaway a lovely gift to ensure that your fall memories are as sweet and smooth as the ones from the sunshine days.
