Easter

March is here! – PERFUME REVIEWS

Image

So it’s finally March and soon I am hoping the better weather will follow as well, the kind of days when it’s sunny and you can smell the flowers and it just feels like a great day! Also I am currently in the process of sorting out a giveaway for when I reach 100 followers on Bloglovin – so stick around because I’m gathering some super bits for you all! 🙂

Anyway so I thought I would review a few of my favourite perfumes at the moment and let you all know a little about them & why they’re currently my favourites! So to start with I have…

  • Victoria’s Secret Bombshell Body Mist – 250ml
    So I never really admired any Victoria Secret merchandise until I actually ventured into their store in Sheffield and I loved everything! Their perfumes were just divine, but I actually brought a body mist (Not perfume I know! But deserved a review) and I thought that instead of paying a lot of money for a perfume I was unsure about I would try the body mist first and I am so so happy with this purchase, it was rather expensive I think it was like £22 which for me is expensive just for body mist but it is so beautiful that I didn’t mind! It smells so sweet but not overpowering and it lasts for a long time which is excellent, I brought mine in January and it’s still practically full! 🙂
  • Vera Wang Lovestruck Floral Rush Eau de Parfum Spray 30ml
    I got this as a present from my parents for my birthday and it smells lovely, it’s floral and light and is definitely a great buy! I never have tried or brought any of Vera Wang perfumes before and this has set the standards high for future perfumes!
  • Herve Leger Femme – 50ml
    I noticed this perfume online and also in the Avon catalogue for those of you from Britain, I got this and I had low expectations for it at first because it was never a brand I’ve ever heard of however I had heard good things about it however I was still skeptical. But it was and still is (I say ‘is’ because I have two bottles still!) a really beautiful smelling perfume, it’s fresh and floral but also smells different from other perfumes I have smelt because it has distinctive notes in the smell – It’s not to fruity or girly but the right amount to be sophisticated and fresh.

Sunshine, Great opportunities and American candy

Today has been amazingly sunny and warm much to my surprise! Living in the North East I haven’t got to see much sun at all compared to back down South, but today was a really beautiful day. It makes me wish that there was some nice lakes or something nearby to walk around but there isn’t any 😦

So my day hasn’t been to exciting, but on a positive note I wrote two articles yesterday night for two different websites and they got published today! Which I’m really happy about because I’m trying to build up a portfolio for my future career as a journalist/fashion journalist and I love writing so that’s great 🙂

Although I’ve been writing articles mostly all day I’ve been snacking on american sweets that I picked up when my mum brought me when they were up here for Easter. I really love American candy, it’s so much better than English sweets and I love how bright and vibrant the American candy packaging is! I think my personal favourite is Willy Wonka’s Nerds which I’ll attach a picture below so you can see.

I just wanted to share something special as well, when my parents were up here for Easter they gave me awesome presents and one of which is something that my dad gave me which was a wonderful bracelet to wear all the time and I love it because whenever I feel unhappy, wearing it just makes everything seem better – So thanks pa! 🙂

Hope you’ve all had a wonderful day! See you tomorrow 🙂

Easter Sunday, Goodbyes and a £10 lottery win

So it is Easter Sunday today and to be honest it’s been a partly sad but relaxing day, I said goodbye to my parents as they headed home towards London while I stay here in Leeds which was pretty emotional especially as this is my first Easter away from home.

A little explanation- the reason I didn’t go home for Easter was because I actually managed to get a job interview (I got the job!) which happened to be in the Easter break plus I had a hectic amount of work to do for when I go back for my final semester of first year. While everyone else was leaving my halls with suitcases packed and getting in cars and on every train,bus or coach I was stuck up in the chilly North with snow. Luckily my partner had to stay as well for his job so at least I wasn’t completely alone, if he wasn’t here either I think I would’ve ran all the way home by now out of loneliness. So this morning my parents left after a really nice weekend showing them around Leeds, I couldn’t have asked for a better weekend to be honest it was lovely seeing them. So this Easter has been nice and lucky me I also won £10 on a lottery ticket – the most I’ve ever won! So I’m going to treat myself to an eyebrow threading appointment, usually I always keep on top of my eyebrows making sure they’re kept tidy but lately being a student without tweezers or money for threading has had bad results on my eyebrows – to which my dad made some pretty funny jokes about over the weekend!

I also think I have sprained my ankle as it kills! 😦 So I’m kind of just hobbling around as well, but I brought some cucumber and used it on my eyes and had a long nap (5 whole hours!) because I really needed some sleep and to rest my ankle. But that’s been my Easter so far, a mixture of good and bad but still great… just want to wish everyone a Happy Easter! 😀 (Below is the cutest picture ever that I found on Google)
