Beauty – The Perfect Perfume for a Beach Holiday – Escada Sorbetto Rosso

I don’t know about you, but when I go away on a special holiday, I like to take along a new perfume, something that will become a signature scent for the trip. Something which will have the power to take me back afterwards, with just a spritz. This has happened with Ghost Sweetheart Forever, which I took along to Santorini, and now makes me remember the brilliant blue skies and...

Beauty – My Go To Girly Scents 

It probably comes as no surprise that I am a self-confessed girly girl. I love the colour pink, I like anything that sparkles, shimmers or shines, and when it comes to fragrances, the more feminine the better! I love perfume, and have done for as long as I can remember. I have memories of my mum spritzing on her favourite scent back when I was a child, and as soon...

Beauty – October Monthly Favourites 

As the days get colder and the heating gets turned on (yes, Ed finally caved and let me have it on), it’s important to take care of your skin and to generally pamper yourself a little more. These are the beauty products I’ve been using and loving this month.  Garnier – Moisture Bomb  This is something I’ve used in the past and returned to recently. It’s really affordable at £5.29...

Beauty – How to Find the Right Scent for You 

Over the past couple of weeks I must have smelt around 30 perfumes whilst on the hunt for the perfect scent for our wedding day. I had a few criteria, but ultimately I wanted something which smelt beautiful… on me.  The problem was, I was relying on my go to method for any new purchase – online reviews. However, perfumes are totally individual, what smells amazing on one person might...

Beauty – Strong Feminine Perfumes 

I am a huge fan of perfumes. A good perfume can help affect my mood, it can bring back memories and it can make me feel sexy or sophisticated with one quick spritz.  This Christmas I received three perfumes, which I love. They are all fairly strong scents which linger, so if you prefer something subtle they might not be for you. Also, I know nothing technical about perfume so...

Beauty – My Top 5 Lust Have Perfumes 

I am a self confessed perfume hoarder. I went shopping with Ed whilst he was on paternity leave and mentioned I might treat myself to a new perfume. He was incredulous as I ‘already have loads’ of perfumes… Men, they simply don’t understand… I didn’t end up treating myself, mainly because I realised a new perfume and a newborn don’t exactly go hand in hand. Instead, I’ve put a couple...

My Current Top 5 Beauty Products 

So I’ve decided not to carry on with my Throwback Thursday series. I started it wanting it to be a chance to cover serious topics covering my past, and I will still discuss my past in future posts, as I find it really cathartic. I don’t ever want to force my writing though, and this is how I’ve started to feel trying to come up with meaningful topics, which are...

What Christmas Looked Like for Me in 2015 

Christmas is my most favourite time of year. This year was no different and was definitely needed having worked such long hours running up to it at work…  The day started off with Carly waking me up at 6am. After stalling for as long as possible, and a very much unwanted bath for the children, we ventured downstairs to see what Santa had brought for us. The kids opened their...
