Spring Scent

Clarins - Eau Dynamisante

This perfume is such an uplifting, fresh scent for spring

This is basically a grown up body spray, it can be applied generously and the plant extracts act to tone and moisture the skin!

Citrus, ginseng and patchouli notes make it a happy and heady perfume

I definitely recommend this if you are wanting a scent for SS11 which isn't a generic, sugary summer perfume

Have you tried any Clarins products before that you would recommend?
What is your favourite scent for SS11?

Fruit Works

I was recently scent two products from the massive Fruit Works range at Grace Cole

Watermelon & Pink Grapefruit Body Scrub and Body Butter

Firstly, the scent of these products is amazing!
I normally find fruit scented products have an off-putting chemical/sickly scent, but these have a realistic, sweet and juicy smell which lasts on my skin

Both products come in a fun, hot pink packaging which looks fabulous in my shower

The Scrub - 238ml
- This is a great every day product to keep skin soft and radiant, however I would use something more abrasive before fake tanning etc

Darling Tip - Mix a little sugar with a body scrub in your hand to make a scrub more abrasive and effective

The Body Butter - 250ml This is so luscious and creamy, I have been using this in the mornings and I find the scent and moisture lasts all day on my skin
It has the sweet, watermelon and grapefruit scent which mixes well with any perfume I wear or is strong enough to give a subtle fragrance

I definitely recommend giving these a try if your looking for some new, fruity body products for spring & summer.

Check out their website where you can buy online & see more of the fruity products -

£7 Chanel Black Pearl Dupe

One current hype in the beauty community I have seen recently is
Chanel Black Pearl nail polish
A gorgeous colour but with a hefty £16.85 price tag

I have found a very similar version for £7 - No7 Stay Perfect Nail Colour - Night Silver
(£5 off Number 7 vouchers are currently available in boots)

The colour is a gunmetal silver which appears green, blue and almost black in different lights.

I love this colour: a fresher, lighter and prettier version of blacks and greys for spring!

Have you tried Black Pearl or Night Silver?

LOTD - Rosy Raisin

ELF - Rosy Raisin

The colour is beautiful pink/brown nude - A great every day lipstick

This has a soft and creamy formula, lasts well and is moisturising

I Totally recommend ElF lipsticks

They are really cheap, good quality and come in a wide selection of colours

I am thinking of trying Natural Nympth from Elf, has anyone tried it?

February favourite's

I have been loving a few things this month

- Off your face Soap & Glory cleansing cloths
- Umberto Giannini Backcomb in a bottle
- Lush Strawberry feels forever massage bar
- Sleek Liquid illuminator
- Love ChloƩ Eau du parfuum

I simply have to show you another picture of the perfume bottle

The chain detail is so pretty on my vanity and makes it a more luxurious experience of spraying
Love is a much fresher and lighter scent in comparison to the original ChloƩ perfume which I already own.It has a floral, powdery and mature scent that lasts all day and develops into a more musky and amber scent.

Has anyone tried any of these products?
What has been in your February favourites?

I am always looking for ways to organise my things and I really recommend big suitcases, trunks etc as storage

I bought this at a local vintage fair for a bargain at £15

I love the pale green and studded leather, it goes lovely with my pale pink walls

You can fit so much in them shut the lid and forget about how messy it is inside

I'm sure you can find similar items in home stores etc, but if you can get a genuine vintage one it will be allot more interesting

Do you use trunks as storage?
