Christmas | Gift Guide: Fragrance

20151024_10075020151024_100900Fragrance is one of those safe but great gifts to both give and receive.  I spend ages in shops smelling numerous scents, trying to get out of the intended recipient what kind of scents they like and even have a snoop through their current collection.

Fragrance Direct is one of my favourite places to pick up beauty products, and their huge selection of fragrances doesn’t disappoint!

For Her I know a lot of people who love Marc Jacobs scents, me being one of them! My boyfriend bought Daisy for me years a go and since then I’ve lusted after each and every release! Decadence* is the latest release and doesn’t disappoint. I always love the packing of Marc Jacobs scents as they look great on your dressing table. It is quite a pricey one but makes a lovely present for anyone who loves this brand.

For Him There are so many amazing scents for guys I sometimes find myself wanting them for myself! This BOSS BOTTLED*. gift set comes in at under £50 from Fragrance Direct which is such a good price considering the set includes a 100ml bottle and a 30ml bottle. Making one great for home and one in his gym bag, or even to travel with. I love the scent of this and my boyfriend has already started using this and loves it too.

For the Home Since we moved out a few months a go I’ve been obsessed by home scents, yes my life is that exciting! Whilst I’m a slight liability with candles (as much as I love them!) I feel much better with diffusers. When I saw that Fragrance Direct had a huge range of Orla Kiely products I wanted one of each! I love the design of the Orla Kiely products I knew straight away I wanted one of their diffusers. I decided on a Lavender Scented Diffuser* which I can’t seem to find on site anymore, but they have orange, basil & mint and lemon which all sound amazing. It looks great on our mantle piece and at £22.50 makes a great gift… definitely thinking of getting one for my mum!

What are your favourite scents?

Fashion | #GeorgePartyTips





Jumpsuit – George at ASDA* | Shoes – Newlook | Bag – Aspinal of London via The Hut

I’m not one to go ‘out out’ as I tend to live my life as a 85 year old woman who would rather curl up in bed with a book. But the Christmas Party with work is around the corner and I was invited to a hen night so I’ve been shopping for something suitable.

When the lovely Erica at Talented Talkers got in touch, asking if I’d like to take part in George at Asda’s #GeorgePartyTips campaign I thought it was perfect timing! I had a browse on site and this gorgeous playsuit caught my eye. Admittedly, this is a huge jump out of my comfort zone as I usually go with shift dresses, which hide a multitude of sins. I’d say that is my main tip if you are like me and stick to the same style, try something completely out of your comfort zone, you’ll surprise yourself. Although you can see my lumps and bumps in this outfit (and my arms were out – my main body issue) I felt really confident, and that is the main thing, right?

This playsuit was only £25 and everyone has been really surprised when they’ve asked – as it looks so much more expensive. The quality is really good and made the perfect outfit for dancing away with friends. I paired this with two new purchases; New Look heels and my Aspinal of London clutch bag which finished the look off perfectly.

George have a huge range of Party Dresses on offer, I have my eye on this Sequin Shift Dress!

My #GeorgePartyTips

  1. Take a huge leap out of your comfort zone and try styles you wouldn’t usually. Of course I’m all for comfort on a night out, but you might be surprised when you try a style you usually wouldn’t and you look and feel great!
  2. Plan your outfit in advance! There is nothing worse than doing your hair and make-up perfectly and then emptying your wardrobe all over your bedroom floor in an attempt to find the outfit for the evening. Even if you have a couple of options, you’ll at least know whether you actually need to fake tan. The whole jumpsuit thing made me thankful as I didn’t have to get the fake tan out!
  3. Spend the whole night in the toilet? Don’t pick a jumpsuit or playsuit, no matter how good they look! I’m quite lucky on a night out as I can hold out a while until I ‘break the seal’. Nobody wants to be naked in a cubicle unable to work out how to get back into their outfit…
  4. Clueless on how to perfect the smokey eye? Make time to get on YouTube and watch endless tutorials. You may not be a make-up artist but you’ll come out of it with some idea!
  5. False eyelashes can finish your make-up off perfectly, even if it does take you 30 minutes to get them on… (Yes I am useless!).

What are your party tips?

Beauty | MAC Lipsticks for A/W




I bought my first MAC lipstick not long after I started my blog in 2013 and since then I’ve ended up with a little collection. There is just something about the packaging, the noise it makes when you put the lid on, the vanilla scent and the fact they are bloody good lipsticks that makes me happy.

I’m pretty much a dark lip kinda girl, so you won’t catch me with a bright pink or 1000s of nude lipsticks.  My choices do differ slightly depending on the time of year, but these are my go-to MAC lipsticks this A/W.

mac lipsticks

L to R – Rebel, Diva, Heroine, Media, Smoked Purple, Twig and Cyber

Rebel (Satin) – This is a much loved lipstick amongst beauty bloggers and definitely a staple for your collection. It’s the perfect lipstick if you are looking for a darker lipstick but don’t think you could pull off a really dark lip.

Diva (Matte) – The second MAC lipstick I purchased is Diva, a gorgeous deep red shade. This is my go-to when I want a red lip but find a ‘red red’ too much.

Heroine (Matte) – When this returned to the UK after a hiatus, I died and went to heaven, and of course ordered it straight away. I found this lipstick hugely daunting at first but I love it so much I even wear it to work. ADORE.

Media (Satin) – When I want a dark berry lip I always reach for media, it’s a beautiful shade and so easy to wear.

Smoked Purple (Matte) – I had lusted after this lipstick for ages before I bought it and it’s perfect. It is super underrated but one I am obsessed with.

Twig (Satin) – The only remotely nude lipstick in my MAC lipstick collection is Twig, a lipstick I adore. I think it goes with my skin tone really well and it lives in my handbag for those days I’ve forgotten my lipstick.

Cyber (Satin) – Another beautiful lipstick that is a perfect deep purple shade, 100% recommend this if you are after a dark lipstick this winter.

Basically, it’s likely that if I have a lipstick on it’s going to be one of the above. Are you a MAC lipstick lover? What is your favourite?

Fashion | Happiness Boutique



Necklace* – Happiness Boutique

I was contacted by Happiness Boutique just before I moved house, so when it arrived it got packed straight away. I finally got this out of it’s packaging last weekend and decided to give it a whirl with a roll neck. I’m usually a chunky statement necklace kind of girl but I fell in love with this Geometric Drop Beaded Necklace. The quality of this is really good, definitely not like buying a £3 one from Primark and expecting it to last three wears! It’s £11.75 which I think it really reasonable for a piece like this, it’s definitely something I’ll be carrying through all seasons and I really looking forward to styling this up with different pieces.

They have so many beautiful pieces on site, I’ll definitely be heading over there next time I’m in the market for some jewellery.

Disney Christmas Wish List

Disney Christmas

Last week I popped into the Disney Store in Chester (who can simply walk past?!) and was greeted by the most amazing Christmas range. In the past I’d never paid attention to this as I didn’t have my own house or tree to decorate, however this year it’s all I can think about! We don’t have a tree yet and aren’t even sure where it’s going to go but I already have my eye on plenty of things to make the house extra Disney this Christmas… if only I had to bank account to pay for it all!?

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7 // 8 // 9 // 10 // 11 // 12

What are your favourite pieces?

Beauty | Lush Haul – Christmas & Halloween

Lush Christmas

A couple of weeks a go I was invited to attend an event at my local Lush store, showcasing the amazing new Halloween and Christmas ranges. You can read all about that here. We were given some time to shop after the event and of course I couldn’t resist! I was then handed a generous goody bag which I’m so grateful for, so I thought I’d show you what I was bought/gifted!

Whilst at the event we made a Bûche de Noël facial cleanser and one of the Butterbear bath bombs. We were then allowed to take these away which I was so excited for! I love the Butterbear bath bomb and have been eying up this Christmas set. I’m yet to try the Bûche de Noël facial cleanser but the smell and what’s inside it SCREAM Christmas so I’m definitely going to be giving it a go soon!

Don’t Look At Me isn’t part of the Halloween or Christmas ranges but I have been lusting after it since I went to the NWMEET and we had a demonstration from Lush. I have fallen in love with this face mask as it leaves my face feeling AMAZING! It’s a really vibrant bright blue/green colour and it just makes me think of the face masks from old movies! Anyone else get that? I’d highly recommend this as I’ll definitely be re-purchasing it!

I bought myself one of the Sparkly Pumpkins but was also gifted one too! I think it smells of Irn Bru which I love! I rarely drink the stuff but ended up nipping to Tesco for a bottle after craving it… send help. I’ve used this and thought it was lovely, not my favourite but I’m definitely looking forward to using the other one in my stash! Halloween-wise I was also gifted one of the small bottles of Lord of Misrule shower creme, I’m usually a sweet scent kinda gal but I fell in love with this one. It’s more of a herbal scent but definitely one I’d recommend getting your hands on if you prefer those types of scents.

I couldn’t leave without picking up a Golden Wonder, Candy Mountain and Dashing Santa. All firm favourites that were out last year too. I was also gifted a Dashing Santa which made me insanely happy!  One new Christmas product I had my eye on as soon as I walked into the store was Peeping Santa, he is SO cute! Not necessarily a Christmas scent as he smells very much of strawberries, but it’s definitely up my street and I was excited to put him in my basket! I’ve not used him yet as I think I may need to buy a back-up first!

Two other products that were kindly gifted to me were the Santa’s Lip Scrub and Snow Cake soap. I’ve tried the other Lip Scrubs but a I’m so lazy I’d forget they were there and not use them! I love the cola scent of this one so I’m determined to combat my dry lips using this. The Snow Cake soap was a new product for me as I don’t tend to pick up the soaps from Lush. I LOVE this though, it smells like marzipan which is heavenly. It’s definitely made me consider the soaps in future!

Overall, the two ranges don’t disappoint! There are some amazing new products and a lot of the oldies that we all love. In December I’m off to London for the weekend and dying to get into the Oxford Street store… SO EXCITED!

What are your favourite products from the ranges?

Food | Degustabox September 2015


My favourite time of the month is receiving the email letting me know my Degustabox* is on it’s way. Not only do I get the excitement of getting post, but also of not knowing what I’ll be getting. So much excitement eh!?

I was really impressed with this months box that I ate the Portlebay Popcorn almost straight away! I was happy to see the sweets as I definitely have a sweet tooth, I’m usually a marshmallow lover too but wasn’t a fan of the Mallow & Marsh ones in this box. In terms of drinks the boyfriend gave the vanilla flavour UP & GO a 7/10 and whilst I wasn’t a huge fan of the chocolate one I loved the two drinks from More Drinks. I’m a huge fan of flavoured water and this was delicious, so will definitely be picking this up if I see it on the shelf.

The Miracle Noodles look great but I’m yet to give them a whirl, same with the Compete Energy bites. As I’m not a coffee drinker I think these will be a quick way to get the equivalent energy, but we’ll see!

Overall, I loved this box and really excited to see what the October box brings.

Get a huge £6 off your box with the code BLDEG15, definitely worth a try at that price?

Lifestyle | Lush Halloween and Christmas Ranges


On Saturday night I took myself off to Lush (with Katy and Sam in tow) to join a room full of other bloggers for a preview of the Halloween and Christmas ranges. I’ve been to a few Lush events in the past at different stores, but Chester is always my favourite. Not only is it my favourite store, but the lovely ladies in there are so welcoming and knowledgable I struggle to walk out with anything less than a bag brimming with goodies.

With plenty of drinks and snacks to keep us going we were shown the new shower jellies which all smell amazing. I need to get my hands on the Halloween one, Nightwing. Whilst in the circle we had a competition, playing a hot potato sort of game with the one jelly (which was constantly dipped in water to make it even harder). I was one of the first to drop it and ended up in the loser corner!

We were shown how to make our own Butter Bear which I’m really excited to use, I want this gift set for Christmas! We were also shown what goes into the Bûche de Noël cleanser which I’m really looking forward to using as I haven’t used any cleansers from Lush yet. The lovely ladies took us through everything in the ranges, from soaps, bath bombs, bubble bars, scrubs, finishing powders, lip products, moisturisers, the limited edition FUN items that are out and the shower cremes. There was a lot of excitement when a big bottle of Snow Fairy was passed around, it is one of the best scents ever!

I loved seeing all of the bath bombs in the water and the bubble bars in the jugs. So. Much. Glitter. When we were given the opportunity to have a little shop after our group photo I ran round like a mad thing putting stuff in my basket! We were then given our goody bags (which are so good!) and off home I went.

I had such a lovely time, met loads of amazing bloggers and can’t wait to use the products I bought/was gifted. I’ll be doing a haul post so keep your eyes peeled!

Massive thank you to Lush Chester for having me… heres to the next one!

Fashion | Black and Tan




Top – Next | Skirt – New Look | Boots – Dr Martens via Allsole | Necklace* – Happiness Boutique

This tan skirt has become my most worn piece, and it was super cheap from New Look. They also have a grey version on site which I have my eye on! Autumn/Winter are my favourite times of the year when it comes to fashion, as I love nothing more than wrapping up warm is a pair of cosy tights! I love that roll necks are back in this year so I picked this one up from Next, it was a little pricier than those from Primark but the ones I bought from there last year were see-through and I have no time for that!

I’m usually all over chunky statement jewellery but I fell for this delicate necklace from Happiness Boutique, I’ll probably do a separate post on it as it’s so pretty! My boots are a new purchase that I fell in love with. They are Dr Martens Chelsea Boots that I adore. Will definitely be doing a post on these, I haven’t taken them off since they arrived..!

Big love to Aisling for taking these pics!
