My Most Worn Perfumes :)

Im not one of those girls who has loads of purfumes, I have quite a few but I only really wear 4 depending on my mood, these are:

Next Define

The website says: An oriental fragrance with exotic flowers and warm musks.

I say: This is a lovely flowery light fragrance which is perfect for summer :) 

I don't know whether you will be able to find this in the shops but you can find it on the website where you can get 100ml for £12 :)

The Body Shop Love ETC...

The website says: Note of pear, neroli, bergamot - combine to create the fragrant top notes. provide the initial scent of the fragrance.
Notes of jasmine, heliotrope, lily of the valley - combine to create the middle notes that vibrate across the fragrance. are the heart notes of the fragrance.
Notes of vanilla, sandalwood, creamy musk - combine to create the base notes of the fragrance. tend to linger on the skin longer than the other notes.

I say: Another lovely scent which I will most likely be wearing this summer as its another flowerly light scent :)

You can buy this off the website where you can get 50ml for £12 :)

Calvin Klein One

The website says: ckone fragrance is a light, relaxed scent, meant to be used lavishly. ckone eau de toilette can literally be splashed all over the body. It is simple, understated and accessible; a refreshing combination of brightness and sensuality. ckone creates a sense of individuality with notes of cardamom, papaya, musk and amber.

I say: This is said to be for both men and women but im not sure that a man could pull this off, its a slightly heavier scent than the other two but equally as nice and very wearable :)

You can buy this from boots where you can get 100ml for £23


The website says: Sophisticated and elegant. Monsoon combines top notes of Neroli and Bergamot with the delicate sweetness of lychee for an exotic fruity infusion. Fresh floral undertones of Bougainvillea Petal combined with Moroccan Rose Oil are complemented with base notes of eastern spice and hot amber oils to add underlying warmth and a sensual feel.

I say: A lovely fragrance which is heavier than the first two scents in this post but still very wearable and perfect for summer evenings :)

You can buy this off the Monsoon website where you can get 30ml for £15

I hope you enjoyed this post :) what are the top fragrances you wear? Anything to recommend?

A body scrub for your face?

Now I know as much as any beauty blogger will know that you shouldn't use a body scrub for your face because its normally too harsh but the other week I ran out of my normal face scrub and thought that using this once wont matter until I get a chance to go and buy some more, but I found that this is even better than my original face scrub! This is one that came in a set from boots about a year ago that got given to me but i've never really used it until now and its amazing. You can use it on the face as the consistancy of the product is very thick so you have to get quite a lot out of the bottle for it to cover all of your face and although the beads are very hard you don't feel them at all. It leaves my face feeling amazingly soft, smooth and even all over :)

I have no idea if boots still sell this (its boots own) but its a great product which I will use until it runs out :) If you can find this or one that is like this I recommend you buy it now :)

Andrew Collinge Purity Review

L - R Shampoo, Conditioner

I have to say that I actually love this shampoo and conditioner :) I used it a couple of times about 2 months ago and didn't really like it so went back to using Herbal Essences but when that ran out I had to choice but to use this and im really glad that I did because its turned into one of my favourites :)

- Leaves my hair so soft and smooth, possibly more than usual
- My hair always feels really clean (if that makes any sense) it feels light like there is no product in it even when I put on my heat protectant, straighten it and hairspray it
- I actually feel like I can go a third day without washing it (I usually wash it every other day) which really is a first for me, I wouldn't like to go a third day but if I woke up very late and didn't have time to shower then I wouldn't feel like people were looking and thinking 'eww wash your hair' haha
- Conditioner is a nice consistency
- Packaging is nice and the product lasts you a long time
- It has a salon type smell to it if you know what I mean which is rather pleasant 

- Shampoo is a bit too thick and I feel like when I put it on the top of my head its really hard to work it down to the ends of my hair which is really annoyin
- This is a volume shampoo and conditioner but I don't feel that it gives me a lot of volume just a slight lift at the roots but it works well as an ordinary shampoo and conditioner

I recommend you all go and buy this and I hope you love it just as much as me :)

Haul + Prom Dress :)

So yesterday I decided that I would go to prom because originally I wasn't going to but my friends have been asking me to go for ages and I finally caved and went and bought a ticket followed by prom dress shopping :) which if I found one quickly would be enjoyable which I thought I did but it was covered in pulls where it looked like somebody who was too big for the dress tried to sqeeze into it and ended up just ruining it anddd then they didn't have any others in my size :( I then looked in about 10 other shops looking for a dress and probably tried on about 25 all of which were horrible or just didn't suit me so I came home rather depressed :( so I went upstairs on my laptop to read my emails and there on my first email was the dress I tried on which had the pulls on it, went on the website and they had it in my size so I ran downstairs to grap my mums card (as I don't have one) ordered It, got my confirmation email and it will be here 2 - 4 days :D I was on such a high afterwards so the day wasn't as bad as it could of been :)

Anywayyyy now i've told you the story here is the dress :) ..

I also want the shoes she's wearing but they don't have them on the website which I thought was a bit weird and annoying :(

I also got some other little bits whilst I was in town..

 Two belts (in a set) £5 New Look 
I needed a white belt to tie in with the outfit I got the other day and this one is just so cute :)

Black bead necklace £4 New Look
Also to tie in with the outfit :)

Flower bangle £3 Blue Star

 Fake nails + glue £2.99 TK MAXX
I love TK MAXX you can find some real bargains such as benefit makeup, rimmel london products, designer clothes etc. you can basically get everything for a much lower price. As you can see these nails were originally £8.49. I also got a Cosmpolitan round barrel brush for £3.99 which I forgot to photograph :/

All in all it was a good day :)

Major Haul :) (Warning: Lots of Pictures)

First of all I want to apologise for being a bit MIA recently but with moving house and exams i've not really had time to blog and this will most likely carry on for a little while :( sorryyyy

So today I went shopping with the mother and managed to get quite a few bits, clothes mostly but there are a few makeup bits towards the end of this post :)

I needed an England top and this was a cheap alternative to the proper shirt although I wouldn't mind having one of those because they are rather nice this world cup :)

New Look - £18
I only just realised how expensive this top was but I love it and I needed a new top for an up and coming birthday party :)

New Look - £16 (I think)
I will pair this with the above top :)

New Look - £12
This was my first pair of gladiators an I love them :)

Primark - £4 
A lovely skirt which could be worn during the day or out at night with a nice top :)

These are the bargain of the day because they are real leather so will last a long time and also fit my feet perfectly :)

Help me please?

I really want to buy the Sonia Kashuk Synthetic Flat Blusher brush but I can't find anywhere to buy it in the UK :( its actually rather depressing and very annoying because im desperate for it. Does anyone know where I can get it from? I've looked on the Space NK website but they haven't got it on there and I can't buy it from the american Amazon and they don't have it on the UK one and Target don't ship internationally and its driving me mad looking for it!

Please help me? :)

I would really appreciate it :)

30 Days - Day 16 A Song That Makes You Cry

The song that makes me cry practically everytime I hear it is Coldplay - Fix You

I love this song, I don't really know why it makes me cry it just always does! haha

P.S I only just found out what a fanfic is and I have never read one therefore I have no favourite one so no day 15 :)

Lip Balm

For me there is only one make of lip balm that I will probably ever use again and it is Nivea. Nivea lip balms make my lips so soft and clear up any dry patches in the same day of using them, there amazing :) I use the Soothe and Protect and Pearly Shine depending on whether I want any colour on my lips.

Pearly Shine

Soothe and Protect

As you can see the Pearly shine gives you a nice pink glisten to your lips and Soothe and Protect gives you that 'just licked your lips' look. Both of these are really good quality and last me a long time even though I use them everyday and apply them about 10 - 20 times. They don't last on my lips for a very long time but I don't really mind that because they leave my lips feeling moisturized and soft which is all I really want from a lip balm. I have found that the Pearly Shine is more hydrating than than Soothe and Protect but both are really good. I tend to use these during the day rather than a lipgloss or lipstick but they both work as a good base especially the Soothe and Protect which also has SPF 12 which makes it good to use during the summer months :)
