My signature fragrance was for many year Coco Chanel. I loved its spicy yet sweet scent. Two years back I went completely off my favourite perfume. In fact I became super sensitive to most heavy scents and stopped using perfume until I discovered Diptique’s Oyede. It’s citric and very fresh and I’ve been using it since. I even made my other half change his scent to something fresh. Anything heavy or spicy would make me sneeze non-stop. Lately I’ve grown bored of Oyedo and been looking for something similar or as fresh to use besides it.
A few weeks back me and the lovely Susie were shopping at Liberty when we discovered La Tulip by Swedish perfume house Byredo. Susie who fell in love with the scent bought a bottle and I spent the entire day smelling her wrists. I can’t get over how gorgeous this perfume smells, it reminds me of running in a beautiful field on a sunny day. I also love how the bottle looks, simple and elegant. Another item added to my wish list HERE.
My blogging habits don’t look good at the moment, basically I think of blogging all the time but don’t actually do it. But I do have a good excuse, sort of… been working hard and also working on some big changes involving the blog. Some exciting news for those who follow my blog. You will find out what in exactly one months time (or perhaps sooner).
So my long weekend has started. Yesterday I decided to spoil handsome who is always spoiling me by getting him the most wonderful scent ever: Verbenas of Provence by Jo Malone. He loves it and I love smelling him. I love all fresh citrus scents and to me this one is a very masculine one though Jo Malone fragrances are unisex.
With my birthday a few days away I decided to put together a wish list :) Hopefully some of my loved ones drop by and take a peek. I have to admit I had to think really hard this year because I truly have everything I want and need: A happy life, healthy and loving parents, a partner who is my soul mate, good friends and my Chanel bag ;) Anything else is just luxury, but of course it’s nice to be spoiled once in a while.

Turns out my prince charming reads my blog more often than I think because he came home with the YSL perfume I blogged about here. Saharienne really suits me because I loves citrus scents. It has lovely notes of lemon and mandarin and Italian bergamot with heart notes of flower petals and orange leaf.
Have you seen how gorgeous Leighton Meester looks in the ad for Vera Wang’s new fragrance Lovestruck? She is still my girlcrush.
Loving the shade and bottle of Yves Saint Laurent’s new fragrance Saharienne. Have to find out whether it smells as good as it looks. Anyone tried it yet?
Here’s a sneak peek at Chanel’s new ad featuring Kiera Knightley. It’s directed by Joe Wright who once again hand picked his muse to embody the playful, free-spirited character of Coco Mademoiselle.
A few weeks ago Liberty had the best deal on, spend £90 and get a Liberty make up bag filled with goodies. I got my favourite Hermes perfume and Bumble and Bumble shampoo + conditioner (which I’ve used since as you can see on the photo).
And all this was for free… I love freebies, make you feel as if you “saved” even though deep inside you know you’re being a fool :)
I can’t open a magazine without seeing at least 2-3 ads starring Scarlett Johansson. She is the face of practically everything. How did this happen?
