Here we go, it is the end of the month and a lot has happened this month that I can not wait to share with you today. I can’t believe how quick October has gone, it feels like yesterday where I was writing September Favourites. Before I realised it, it is the beginning of November, which means my 22 Birthday is now in sight. October has truly been a good month for me and my family, a lot has happened to make my life a lot better.
I have loved October and here are my Favourites;
I’m sure it’s no surprise that I am a MASSIVE fan of The Body Shop, I am always sharing my thoughts on their products and I am always tweeting about them. Today, I will be sharing with you my thoughts on their latest release, the Vanilla Pumpkin range. This range was released at the end of September, seems fitting with it being Autumn as well as Halloween! Everyone was raving about it on Twitter, so I knew I had to get my hands on it, I also love when The Body Shop release themed ranges.
When I first saw it on Twitter, it wasn’t available in store, only online. I didn’t want to take the chance of buying it and not liking it! When I visited my Body Shop in Aylesbury, the store assistant was really kind and allowed me to smell the Body Butter, which instantly made me want it! First thoughts I wasn’t 100% sure, but after a little while, the scent did grow on me. She even said herself how she wasn’t sure on it but after a while, it grew on her. One of the main reasons I love The Body Shop is because of their Love Your Body Club.
At the moment, I am really enjoying finding new fragrances, I’ve come across a lot of different ones as you’ll know from my reviews of Firedance and Love Lily. Today I’m going to share with you my thoughts on the new fragrance from Monsoon, Rose Gold. This is the first time I’ve tried a Monsoon fragrance, so I am very excited, I love the strong presence of Rose Gold. From the name to outer packaging and the bottle, it is covered in Rose Gold, which I absolutely adore! And not just because I am a blogger.
From the first time, my eyes were laid on this fragrance, I was in love! It’s such a luxurious fragrance with it being housed in a premium heavyweight box, it’s soo nice. The packaging, bottle and the fragrance itself works hand in hand to create a fragrance that screams luxury. I’ve even kept the box to store it in just because I can’t think to part with it. For this fragrance, Monsoon worked with Fragrance & Beauty Creations and renowned perfumer Christian Provenzano to create a signature fragrance.
Today is a little different from what I had originally planned! Today is National Chocolate Cupcake Day meaning this post should have been a recipe for youu but unfortunately, I just haven’t had the time to bake some cakes. Meaning a different post on the agenda, today I am going to share with you Love Lily, a fragrance from Accessorize. When I received the email asking me if I wanted to review Love Lily, I jumped at the opportunity because I adore perfumes!
I only ever thought Accessorize sold bags and jewellery as their name implies, so I was actually quite surprised when I heard about Love Lily but at the same time, it made me quite excited to try the fragrance. Accessorize describes Love Lily on their website as sweet and vibrant, which I definitely agree with! This is very much a Spring/Summer fragrance, this may be the wrong time to have this type of fragrance as it doesn’t reflect this season.
I know what you’re all thinking, Christmas! But it’s only October, well I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s seen all the Christmas cards, chocolate, presents already in the shops! I think we’re all starting to celebrate Christmas a little earlier, instead of it being after Halloween, everything starts appearing in September. As you can already tell by the heading, I’m going to be showing you some of the products you can get your hands on from MAD Beauty this Christmas.
I received a very good selection of just some of the products you can put on your Christmas wishlist, from Bon Bon Bath Fizzers from their Modern Christmas collection to a Hand Care Set in the scent Cranberry, three cute little Lip Balms and latest Rose Bath Petals from their Disney Beauty & the Beast Collection. When I opened the parcel, it felt a lot like Christmas! The packaging all screams Christmas, it felt like a little early for this parcel though.
Ever since I can remember, I’ve always celebrated Christmas after my Birthday on 25 November. It just makes sense, to be honest. The Bath Petals were a little random to receive with the other products but at the same time, I was excited to have received them. Before I get into the Christmas Haul, I want to chat a little about MAD Beauty, they are the leader in design led cosmetics for both the gift and professional sectors. With them all working tirelessly to provide a wide range of novel, fun and interesting products.
Bedtime – My favourite time of the day, I love winding down after a long day and getting tucked up into bed. The lovely Charlotte from Charlie’s Wonderland nominated me for the Bedtime Tag. I would love for you to stop by her blog, she is a lovely Beauty and Lifestyle blogger! You won’t be disappointed by her content.
When it starts getting colder, I love nothing but lighting candles in my room for the warmth and the smell of Winter/Christmas. Last year, I was introduced to Scentsy, a wickless candle that when warmed, releases fragrance into the air. Since then I have been addicted to their warmer as there is no wick to light.
They have such a massive range of melts, all different kinds of smells for your home. I love them even more when they bring out their seasonal ranges. With Christmas just around the corner, I thought I would show you my favourite melts from them for this festive time.
It’s December 1st, so it’s officially the first day of the Blogger’s Christmas Beauty Brawl 2016! Over the next ten days, along with bloggers in the United Kingdom and across the pond, I will be reviewing ten different products using Top Trumps cards to rate them. Each day we’ll all be reviewing the same type of product.
As well as scoring them all in the same way, so that it’s fair. When it comes to our reviews, they’ll be as honest as possible. If we don’t like something, we’ll say so by giving it a low score. At the end of our ten day Beauty Brawl, the blogger with the best products will be winning some lovely prizes. (Wish me luck!)
