My current perfume collection

Hey guys, so today I thought I would show you my current perfume collection.

Most of my perfumes are quite summery scents, but I don't really care I just wear the perfume that kind of goes with my feelings I'm not really one to change my scent according to the different seasons. I must warn you thought that I'm not the best at describing scents and this is only my personal opinion.


 The bottle is very funky and smell is very light and feminine, perfect for daytime shopping or going out! The scent last's hours on and I have had a few comments while wearing this perfume. The only negative to this perfume is that after a couple of hours it needs re-applying. Very summery scent.

Flower Bomb - Victor and Rolf:

I got this as a Christmas presents two Christmases ago and have loved it ever since. It is slightly pricey so It's definitely not any everyday scent but it is a very nice one. It is packaged in a lovely bottle and box, very prettty and girly. The scent is very light, florally and perfect for spring and both day and night. 

Butterfly - eau de toilette:

This perfume is a  great size for just whacking in your bag and is once again is a nice long lasting scent. I think it's supposed to be a dupe for Daisy by Marc Jacobs from the look of the bigger bottles of this. I think the best way I can describe this is fruity and fresh this is probably my most warn perfume recently.

Believe - Britney spears:

The stunning bottle and fantastic fragrance makes Believe a winner for me. This is one of the best Britney Spears perfumes. . Believe is not as sweet or intense as fantasy (other britney spears perfumes) and it has a spicy element to it. The lasting power of Believe is incredible it lasts almost all day long.
Ed Hardy - Love Kills Slowly:

This is one of my favorite perfumes! It's great for summer. The scent smells so fruity, fresh, and delicious. It would fit any type of bubbly personality perfectly. I just wish it had better staying power. I really like the package design, because it's real;y different to anyone I have as it's slightly more edgy

Jack wills - Hope Cove:

This is super handy for the handbag. It's quite a sophisticated smell so it's not a everyday smell but is perfect for a night out. The only problem with this is that is leaks like mad you have to keep it up straight.

Zara Textures - Water Lily Fragrance: 

This perfume is a lovely light, feminine and slightly musky scent, a lot of people say it’s an exact dupe for Miss Dior. Miss Dior according to the website  “glides from the sharp charm of a fresh, fruity, citrus prelude into blossoming floral notes, then on to the noble elegance of patchouli, before finally concluding with musk” I would agree to this for the Zara perfume. The lasting power of this is really good, almost as good as a higher end perfume. The packaging is pretty simple but it dose the job.

Have you used any of these perfumes? What's your favourite perfume?

It's the little things...

So recently one of my close friends had her sixteenth birthday, so in celebration we had a sleepover and went out for a lovely meal. We did each others nails and make-up and we also had lots of little treats such as profiteroles (ymmm) and cupcakes (extra ymmm). I had an amazing time and I'm sure every body else did as well. Here are some photos of the sleepover and the meal....

 The Girl's:

As I've said before I had a lovely night and I really enjoyed my self it made me realise that all these girls mean the world to me  and that I'm very lucky and proud to have them as my friend. I know this is quite a small get together but it was so much fun and it was way better than any other type of 'party', as I said in the title it's the little things that are the best. 

Hope you all had a lovely day,

Let it snow!!!!

Well today was rather exiting! IT SNOWED!!!! 
I live in south Wales which has a lot of snow at the moment, and seen as we didn't have any last year everyone went crazy for the snow!
I went to my friends farm to sledge and snowboard and had the best time! I took a few photos before going to see my friends! (Pre-warning this is a very photo heavy blog post...)

Did you get any snow this year?

Touch of luxury: Ladurée macaroons

My mum recently took a trip up to London, with her friend, for a spot of sight seeing and some shopping, of course. And being the fabulous mother that she is she brought home a little treat for me, and it was a treat indeed. If you don't know what Ladurée is it has to be one of the poshest macaroon shop in the world with 12 macrons costing £19.20!! I know what you're thinking, why would anyone want to spend that much on food and trust me I wouldn't of done it myself, however they have to be the nicest things ever, you can just taste the luxury.

They have a wide range of flavours the one my mum chose were milk chocolate, lemon, raspberry, pistachio, caramel and vanilla (they all sound so nice). 

Have you ever had these?

Style Icon: Leighton Meester as Blair Woldorf

So recently I have been obsessed with Gossip Girl and sadly I finished all the series in a matter of days :( However there was a certain character who's style I fell in love with, and if you couldn't tell by the title it was the style of Blair Woldorf. I love her style so much she's classy, elegant and sophisticated. its really inspired me to add a bit more class into how I dress.

♥ She's perfect in every way! She's Beautiful! She's got the figure! She's got the hair!Now I know that she may not be up everybody's street but she is most certainly up mine, and if I could be anyone else in the world I would be her.

♥ Her style is just amazing. Now normally I just wear what I want but I love how 'Blair' is always looking classy and elegant even in her pyjamas. She has certainly inspired me to up my game when it comes to style.'Blair's' style is very chic and almost business like, she would never wear jeans or a hoodie and even when she's spending all day in her house she still looks sharp and sophisticated.I especially love her wedding dress in the last ever episode it was just magnificent.

♥ Her make-up also inspires me. She's very natural but tends to play around with colour either on her eyes or on her lips.

She is truly a very big style icon in my eyes! I know some of you will disagree and say that she's quite boring, but ohh well we all have our own personal tastes and this is mine :) Hope you enjoyed :)
