I am ill.....:(


Sorry for the sad face, I have been poorly today and just diagnosed with gastroenteritis so feeling very sorry for myself! Any tips on how to feel better? I just have no energy and all my muscles are aching at the moment. I'm also off on holiday tomorrow so need to pack tonight and have no desire to do so - arhhh normally I love packing to go away!!!  Anyway have a good week or so and I will be back bright and happy next week!

Muchos love xxx

♥ My new favourite perfume ♥


How lovely and hot was this weekend? We had 28 degrees in Bournemouth so I have been to the beach both days which was lovely and even managed a brief swim in the sea - it was bloody freezing!!

Anyway I thought I'd let you all know my new favourite perfume for summer, which I have had for about two weeks now and absolutely love - YSL Parisienne Eau de Parfum. My friend Anita also has it and introduced me to it on a night out and I knew I had to try it! I do like stronger fragrances, like my all time favourite Flowerbomb,  - this one has top notes of cranberry and blackberry reinforced by the middle notes of Otto Rose and Violet, and the bottom notes of Vanilla. Musk and Cashmeran. If you like lighter fragrances then this isn't for you, but if you like long lasting, strong fragrances then you'll love it! It is pricey, which is to be expected for a EDP and costs around £48 for 50ml. 

Has anyone else tried Parisienne and what do you think?

My birthday!



I had a lovely birthday this week and was very spoilt by my friends and family, including this lovely handbag cake from my boyfriend! He knows me very well! I also received some lovely items from Accessorize which I thought I would share. I don't normally buy much from there (unless it is on sale) as I think it is very overpriced, but lovely. Well my lovely Mother bought me the gorgeous Belize Oriental Moulded Cup Bikini and the floral bandeau dress (see below) which I love and can't wait to wear on holiday this year. Looking at the website Accessorize have some gorgeous items out this summer & I am tempted to buy more stuff now!




Who else has got anything from Accessorize this summer & what do you think?

Garnier Fresh Essentials range




Garnier have some exciting new products out this summer & my pick of them is the Fresh Essentials range


for normal to combination skin. The products gently remove make-up, cleanse, refresh and offer a complete sensory pleasure, enriched with grape fruit waters and vitamin E. I love the face wipes which really make your skin soft after using them which normally face wipes don't do and are often regarded as a lazy way to remove make-up! The key skin softening ingredient is Grape Water, which also smells amazing too. I will definitely be re-purchasing these (sorry I can find them online anywhere to link to them?!) I got them from Tesco last week so check the range out there.

Who else has tried the Fresh Essentials range & what do you think?

PS it is my birthday today wooop!

Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess collection





I love last year's Bronze Goddess collection, especially the limited edition bronzer which is a firm favourite of mine so was really excited to be given the chance to check out the new collection. Estee Lauder describe their new collection as:

"Exotic, eye-popping colour and seductive bronze radiance create a sensuous look. Skin is luminous. Eyes sparkle with bold, metallic hues. Bright lips beckon. Take a walk on the wild side."

My first impressions are I love the gorgeous bright colours, even if the wild coral shade is a bit too adventurous for me (maybe on holiday!) I love the wild orchid colour in the lipgloss (£15) and nail varnish (£12), so these two products are a definite favourite of mine and match perfectly with all my summer outfits. I am also intrigued by the limited edition Eau Fraiche, which is a sensuous, sun-drenched blend of Bergamot and Mandarin, cooled with Tahitian Gardenia Petals and Coconut, warmed with Amber, Sandalwood and Vetiver. I haven't had a chance to try this out yet as the weather has been so awful all weekend but I will definitely be packing this in my holiday suitcase at the end of the month.

Has anyone else tried out the new collection - so far I am loving the bright colours for summer (when it returns!!) I also really want to try out the Bronzing blush as well as it looks gorgeous.
