Hi Guys!

Summer is now officially in full swing, so I thought I’d take it upon myself to share some gorgeous feel-good summer fragrances with you today that won’t break the bank! Enjoy!

marc-jacobs-daisy-eau-so-fresh-blush-review

Starting with Marc Jacobs’ Daisy Eau So Fresh Blush Edition – described as carefree and vibrant, Daisy Eau So Fresh Blush is warm and radiant with a blend of fruity florals, notes of pink grapefruit, and a floral heart of freesia and rose. The base contains a velvety blend of apricot nectar with cedarwood and musk. This fragrance is fruity, juicy and youthful.

  • Top Notes: Mandarin, Apple, and Pink Grapefruit.
  • Heart Notes: Rose, Lily of the Valley, and Freesia.

Daisy Eau So Fresh Blush is £59.00 for 75ml, but currently on offer for £39.33 at Boots.

Limited-Edition-Jimmy-Choo-Exotic-review

Next, the gorgeous Limited Edition Jimmy Choo Exotic – this fragrance is sparkling, sexy and irresistible – and probably my favourite out of all the scents in this post. Exotic is a new interpretation of the classic Jimmy Choo fragrance, with refreshing notes of blackcurrant sorbet and pink grapefruit bringing sparkle to the sensuality of tiger orchid and passion flower – the heart of the original scent. The base of patchouli and velvety raspberry complete this fruity, chypre fragrance.

  • Top Notes: blackcurrant sorbet, pink grapefruit
  • Heart Notes: Tiger orchid and passion flower.
  • Base Notes: Patchouli and raspberry.

Jimmy Choo Exotic is £44.00 for EDT 60ml, but currently on offer for £33.00 at Boots.

Paul-Smith-Sunshine-for-Women-Limited-Edition-review

Paul Smith Sunshine for Women Limited Edition – Now I must admit, Paul Smith isn’t a brand I’d usually gravitate towards when it comes to fragrance, but their latest limited edition is a summer must have! Sunshine for Women is a wonderfully light and fruity yet refreshing scent. Pink grapefruit and peach at the top make the scent juicy and sweet, with a feminine floral heart and warm sandalwood and musk at the base.

  • Top Notes: Pink Grapefruit, Bergamot and Peach.
  • Heart Notes: Bulgarian rose, Jasmine and White Peony.
  • Base Notes: Sandalwood and Musk.

Paul Smith Sunshine for Women is £31.00 for 100ml EDT at Paul Smith.

  • Base Notes: Vanilla and Wood.

Issey Miyake L’Eau d’Issey Summer is £41.00 for 100ml EDT at Selfridges.

Hollister-WAVE-for-Her-review

Hollister WAVE for Her – another brand which I wouldn’t necessarily pick up and try if I saw it on the shelf, Hollister Wave for Her definitely shouldn’t be overlooked. Inspired by a California sunset, this fragrance is made for a girl with youthful spontaneity and personality. The fragrance opens with juicy citruses notes, making way for wild orchid, sunset hibiscus and California Poppy at the heart. Warm, enveloping woods and amber create the perfect balance in the base evoking the warmth of a summers evening.

  • Top notes: Carambola (star fruit), Cassis and Quince.
  • Heart notes: Orchid, Hibiscus and Poppy.
  • Base notes: Solar Notes, Sandalwood and Crystal Amber.

Hollister Wave for her is from £19.00 for 30ml, and it’s available at Boots.

ck-one-summer-review

Opening with fresh and fruity top notes of lime mojito and green apple, leading on to juicy guava and lush vibrant greens at the heart, dripping with exotic freshness. The scent is rounded off with cool cedarwood and tree moss at the base.

  • Top Notes: Green Apple, Lime Mojito, and Green Ginger.

michael-kors-coral-review

And lastly, Michael Kors Coral – described as fresh, feminine, and fabulous, Michael Kors Coral is a bright and bold scent evoking the chic, carefree mood of faraway destinations. The fragrance opens with top notes of pink grapefruit, lemon and juicy mandarin, with pink pepper and blackcurrant mingling with tuberose and orange blossom for a sweet and feminine heart. The base contains a blend of cedar, musk, ambrox and warm sandalwood for a sumptuous and velvety finish.

Fragrance: Limited Edition Michael Kors Midnight Shimmer EDP

Posted on July 30, 2016

michael-kors-midnight-shimmer-perfume-review

Hi Guys!

Michael Kors latest limited edition fragrance has just arrived – Midnight Shimmer Eau De Parfum, and it’s just so gorgeous I had to share it with you!

Described as a sparkling and captivating scent, Midnight Shimmer is the perfect finishing touch before a glamorous night out…

michael-kors-midnight-shimmer

So firstly, can we just take a moment to appreciate the bottle? It’s been designed in midnight blue glass with an ombre iridescent glittery gold finish to reflect the elegance of the nighttime sky – and it’s just stunning! It feels quite wintery and Christmassy to me though, which definitely isn’t a bad thing!

michael-kors-midnight-shimmer-edp-review

The scent itself is a rich, woody fragrance, it’s pretty but not overt girly, and definitely made for evening. There is a powdery element too, but not overly so. The soft musk and sensual vanilla give it a sweet elegance which is both warm and enticing.

Bathed in starlight, the fragrance opens with the succulent sparkle of Quince and highlighted with the fresh dew of Freesia and lush Jasmine Petals. The near-black Vanilla Bean reveals a velvety sensuality. The dry down intrigues with Moss and Peru Balsam touched by a hint of Musk.

  • Top Notes: Quince, Freesia and Jasmine Petals.
  • Heart Notes: Vanilla Bean, Amber Woods and Blonde Woods.
  • Base Notes: Moss, Peru Balsam and Musks.

Michael Kors Midnight Shimmer EDP is from £59.00 for 50ml, and it’s available now at House of Fraser.

Michael Kors – The Gold Fragrance Collection

Posted on August 7, 2015

michael-kors-gold-fragrance-collection

Hi Guys!

This is the very first appearance of Michael Kors perfumes on the blog today, and I’m so excited to be able to share with you a couple of fragrances from the brand new Gold Collection!

We all know Mr Kors is famous for incorporating a touch of bling into his products, whether it’s his signature initial hardware on his bags (My father in law who’s not in the know about these things, thought the gold MK tag on my bag was something I’d bought especially, as they’re my initials too, ha ha!) or his beautiful statement watches – and yes I have a rose gold one which I LOVE! I often use it as an accessory in the background of my blog photos because it’s so pretty.

The Gold Collection comprises of three individual scents, each designed to reflect the opulence and luxury of the highly prized metal – from white, to rose, to 24K gold, and come packaged in the shiniest, metallic bottles I’ve ever seen. (FYI, photographing highly reflective products is actually really difficult!) Out of the three, I have the White Luminous Gold and Rose Radiant Gold fragrances.

I know packaging isn’t everything, but you really can’t beat a beautiful looking product, can you?

micahel-kors-new-fragrances

The three fragrances that make up this collection were each carefully chosen and constructed with the Michael Kors woman in mind, offering a scent for every occasion, mood and personal aesthetic:

  • WHITE LUMINOUS GOLD: Sparkling and sensuous, White Luminous Gold is an intoxicating burst of pear, jasmine and amber in a bright and exotic signature.
  • 24K BRILLIANT GOLD: Feminine and seductive, 24K Brilliant Gold shimmers with orange mandarin, voluptuous florals and a rousing spark of woodiness.
  • ROSE RADIANT GOLD: Tantalising and hypnotic, Rose Radiant Gold entices with a spotlight on sparkling spice, textured with a charming femininity of rich florals and soft musks.

Michael Kors has also launched a new jewellery collection to coincide with The Gold Collection. His new sleek and sculptural accessories have been designed specifically to mirror the aesthetic of these beautiful fragrance bottles – I can’t wait to see the new jewellery line!

I love both of these fragrances, and I don’t actually think I can choose a favourite at the moment. I’d love to hear if you’re a fan of Michael Kors products? I’d definitely recommend giving these a sniff when they’re launched!

White Luminous Gold, 24K Brilliant Gold and Rose Radiant Gold are available in 30ml (RRP £39), 50ml (RRP £58) and 100ml (RRP £79) bottles. They will be available to purchase nationwide from 19th August 2015.

What I Gave, And Received for Christmas

Posted on December 29, 2014

christmas-presents

Hi Guys!

So Christmas is most definitely over, but we’re not quite back to normal yet. It’s that weird in between time – between Christmas and New Year where if you’re anything like me, you basically carry on eating everything in sight, and shop the sales till your credit card decides to cut itself up because it can’t take the battering any more.

My original intention was to do a ‘What I Got for Christmas’ post, but I kind of feel a bit weird about it, it’s a bit like ‘look at all the amazing things I got…’ I dunno, a bit showy maybe? But that said, I do really like being nosey and seeing other people posts and checking out the amazing things they received, so I decided in the end to tell you about what I gave and received, kind of a Christmas day overview. I didn’t really receive anything that’s worth a lot anyway – I tend to ‘treat’ myself with the expensive things I want! (I’ve included these here too) So yeah, I hope you kind of see where I’m coming from??

Anyway I had such a lovely Christmas day, of course it was all about Fred, we set out a mince pie and milk for Santa and a carrot for the reindeers on Christmas Eve, and when Fred came down the stairs on Christmas morning his eyes were like saucers when he saw the empty plate and glass, bless him!

Ollie loved his book about buttons and fasteners (he does metal detecting!) and his Book of Everything. I also gave him a posh bottle of whiskey and a couple of other bits. Fred was ecstatic with all his new Peppa Pig toys (and I now really have no idea where I’m going to put them all!) And Ollies mum gave us the most amazing hamper full of food and drink and even included a sweet little a jar of money!

I’ve been a very lucky girl and received some lovely gifts too this year, Ollie gave me the Urban Decay Naked on the Run Palette, Sali Hughes Pretty Honest and Bobbi Brown books. My father in law gave me a sample set of chocolate themed perfumes from Bloom perfumery too, and I’m officially in love with all of them! I definitely want to buy at least one full sized bottle, so I’ve decided to visit the store next year so I can sample their full range, I’m so excited! (I don’t have a photo of these I’m afraid as I seem to have left them at my Mum’s house)

christmas-makeup

My parents gave me some money towards a new pair of Ugg boots, as I managed to ruin my previous pair in bad weather. And I also may have treated myself to a couple of special bits before Christmas in the Black Friday sales… I picked up a beautiful Michael Kors black Jet Set Chain Tote and the Charlotte Tilbury Supermodel set from Selfridges – the CT set had 10% off and the bag had 20% off, so it would have been rude no to!

I also picked up a couple of the new Tom Ford Lips and Boys lipsticks too – This reminds me I must think about starting a spending ban!!

So these gifts were like ‘Merry Christmas to me, from me’. I’ve been very good and haven’t even touched any of the make up yet, I’m going to photograph it all, hopefully today, and post reviews throughout the week.

I really did have a lovely Christmas, I hope you did too! I’d love to hear about your day?? xxx
