Michael Buble By Invitation Rose Gold SIGNED Fragrance Giveaway!

Posted on May 3, 2018

Hi Guys!

It’s been quite a while since I last hosted a giveaway, and I’m back today with a fabulous extra special fragrance that one lucky reader will win!

Just to rewind a bit, if you’ve been reading my blog for a while (thank you) – you may remember about a year and a half ago I was whisked away on the trip of a lifetime to New York, specially for the launch of Michael Buble’s debut fragrance, By Invitation. I won’t go into too much detail (you can check out my post on that here) but it was an amazing trip, and the fragrance was just as beautiful as I’d hoped.

Well, Michael is now back with a bang – in terms of fragrance, and he’s recently launched the next addition to the By Invitation line – By Invitation Rose Gold…

For those that have already tried the original By Invitation fragrance, in comparison, the Rose Gold edition is more intense. It’s a floral oriental gourmand scent – very feminine and sensual. It’s of course similar to By Invitation, but this sister fragrance offers another level of glamour and luxury, and I guarantee if you liked the original, you’ll love By Invitation Rose gold.

The fragrance opens with sophisticated top notes of radiant magnolia, red fruits and granit pear, leading to a tender rose and peony heart, with a hint of black plum. The base features notes of lingering praline and vanilla, with just a touch of precious spice, leaving this beautiful scent with an elegant and warm dry down.

Today I’m giving away a massive 100ml bottle of By Invitation Rose Gold Edition, and the box is signed by the man himself! This truly is a collectors piece, and would be just perfect for Buble fans! To be in with a chance of winning, just enter via the Rafflecopter widget below. The giveaway will run for two weeks and is open internationally. If you have any questions please feel free to get in touch – good luck!

Mother’s Day with Debenhams & £100 Gift Card Giveaway!

Posted on March 6, 2018

Hi Guys!

It’s almost Mother’s Day! And if you’re anything like me you might have a nice day of relaxation planned – I’m hoping this year’s ‘breakfast in bed’ might be a slight improvement on last year but we’ll see! 😀

Mother’s day is a day to think of your mum for everything she does for you – all those little things that you take for granted. As I’m a mum myself now, I really have a whole new perspective on everything my mum did for me (and what a complete nightmare I could be) when I was growing up!

If you’re in need of picking up a gift or two this week, Debenhams definitely have you covered. They have the most fantastic selection of gifts available for all budgets, to suit all mums whatever their tastes. From fragrance, to beauty, and home gifts to experience days, there’s bound to be something perfect at Debenhams to suit your mum! I have a few gorgeous gift ideas to share with you today –

If Mum’s a bit of a skincare fanatic, this super luxury ELEMIS Pro-Collagen Marine Day Cream could make the perfect gift. Luxury skincare brand Elemis’ brand new Collagen Marine Day Cream is specifically formulated to target fine lines and wrinkles. This day cream blends a powerful combination of ingredients, including padina pavonica and ginkgo biloba, to improve the skin’s appearance, increase hydration, and improve elasticity and suppleness. It also contains a micronised sunscreen that leaves no white streaks on the face, which offers broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection.  

Or for something more affordable, how about the Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturising Gel? Perfect for those with combination or oily skin, the Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturising Gel is dermalogically tested and fragrance free, so it’s perfect for those with a more sensitive complexion. This oil free gel hydrates the skin leaving it feeling softer, smoother and younger.

I also have the stunning new Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Nectar EDP – this fragrance is honestly so beautiful, and it’s easily one of my new favourites! Flowerbomb Nectar is the newest addition to the Flowerbomb collection. Described as a sensual flower liqueur, with an explosion of floral notes and a surprising twist, this scent opens with notes of fresh bergamot oil and rich sweet blackcurrant syrup. The heart unveils a feminine and enveloping white floral nectar of Sambac Jasmin and Orange flower combined with sweet notes of Osmanthus, leading to a beautifully addictive gourmand blend of warm spicy hues of tonka bean and creamy soft vanilla at the base.

I’m also giving away a £100 Debenhams Gift Card, so you can treat your mum, a loved one, or yourself to anything you like! All you need to do is enter via the Rafflecopter widget below. The giveaway will be open for two weeks and is open internationally. If you have any questions please feel free to ask, and good luck!
