My current favourite top 2 perfumes

As you may know I'm a huge perfume obsesser and I love trying different scents. I always get excited to try a new designer perfume and usually head straight towards the perfume section in a department store. I could spend ages there sniffing out different scents. Yes, I may be a bit of a perfume addict. I also use up my perfumes annoying quickly which means I have to wait a while to get a new one. That's a habit I'm trying to break.

So today's post is focusing on my top two current perfumes that I'm loving and using right now. Of course it changes every season so there'll definitely be an updated version soon.

To start with, my main perfume this month is the Givenchy Very Irresistible which I'm totally loving. It's got a sweet but warm smell and lasts forever. Literally. The scent clings onto clothes and really gives off a strong smell. I'm sad that the bottle I own is a tad on the small side but I make do and often swap between other perfumes so it doesn't run out. Although it usually does with me unfortunately. I love the appearance of the bottle as well- it has a twisty shape to it the colour looks really pretty on my dressing table.

My second perfume is the wonderful Ralph by Ralph Lauren. This is a fresher sherbet-like scent and is actually a really nice summer perfume. It's also one of the first ever perfumes I got as a young girl so I've always been fond of this perfume. The bottle may look a bit small but the scent is very strong and lasts for ages. Its a lovely aqua blue colour as well and again really decorates my dressing table.

I'm excited to see which perfumes I'll be trying out next time so if you have any suggestions then please let me know! I'd love to hear your thoughts. Thank you for reading and see you next time!

L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche: Sequin Explosion & Fourreau Inferno

When I first heard of L'Oreal's new nail colour collection called 'Colour Riche' it sounded rather fancy to me (and I like trying fancy things) so I was pretty intrigued to try them out. I decided on getting the Fourreau Inferno and Sequin Explosion which both looked really suited together. I've always had a thing for matching my nail colour to my nail glitter so I knew they'd look great together anyway. And I was right!

The Fourreau Inferno comes out a gorgeously glossy dark red colour but I had a few problems with applying it. The consistency of the product wasn't very good and was extremely thick. This made it hard to apply and could get a bit lumpy. The colour comes out very bold, however, which I like and it stays on extremely well.

The Sequin Explosion was also extremely thick and came out quite lumpy on the brush. The brush dries within seconds of being out so be very careful when taking it out to use. The glitter applies on very strong and thick as well so you only have to apply a little bit otherwise it may overshadow the main nail colour.

I really like the nail colour and the nail glitter together but the consistency was a big let down. Unfortunately I have to say for a 'good quality' collection I was a bit disappointed with the actual quality. I would definitely try some other nail colours from that collection, however, but just be aware of those issues.

The Liebster Award Nomination

I just woke up and I went to check my emails when I noticed I had a notification on my comments section. I was pretty intrigued to see what it was so I checked it out and when I did I noticed I received Liebster Award.

Here's some main info

  • It is not a competition. It is more like a chain letter, forwarded between small-time bloggers in order to give them some recognition and so everyone can discover some amazing blogs that have been over-looked.

  • The word “liebster” is German and has several definitions: dearest, sweetest, kindest, nicest, beloved, valued & more.

  • This is a small but great thing to receive, so breaking the chain would be really rude and that's not what the blogging community is about. 

I got nominated by the lovely All Is Good blog and I want to give you a big thank you as I've never received one of these before and I'm extremely happy you chose me!

Now for the rules:

  • Thank and link the person who nominated you.

  • Answer the questions given by the nominator.

  • Nominate 11 other bloggers (who have less than 200 followers) and link them.

  • Notify all nominees via social media/blogs.

Here's my answers!

Why did you start your blog?

I've always been a fashion-inspired girl since I was young so the idea of having my own fashion blog sounded amazing. English has always been a favourite subject of mine since primary school as well, so it made sense to give it a go.

What has been your favourite blog post to write?

My favourite post to write so far has to be either my debut LCM one or a collaboration I did with a makeup blogger ages ago. It was so much fun mixing my ideas with someone else and creating something even better. But going to your first LCM is even more exciting. So probably that one.

What are some of your favourite brands?

Ooh I have lot of favourite brands but my top ones would have to be Forever 21, Boohoo.com, Missguided.com and New Look. I quite like Topshop as well.

QUICK! You're late... you have your phone, keys and purse.. what other 3 things do you need?

Okay, so firstly lipstick or lip gloss because I always need one on me. Secondly, a mirror to check my makeup and help apply my lipstick or lip gloss. And thirdly, my earphones because I love listening to music on the bus or in the car.

How many pairs of shoes do you own?

I honestly don't know the accurate amount but I'm guessing around 8 pairs for the winter. I buy a new pair each season so they slowly mount up.

What is a habit you need to break?

Biting my nails! It's an awful habit and ruins the chance of getting my nails done because there's nothing to be done. It's rather irritating.

Favourite piece of clothing?

My leather jacket! I love all things leather so my jackets like my baby.

What is something you really want to buy... but you're still unsure?

I'm sure whether to buy the L'Oreal Magique Eau De Teint or not because apparently it's hard to use. I really love the look of it though and I've heard good things about the actual foundation so I'm still not sure!

Where do you see yourself in 10 years time?

Hopefully as a successful fashion journalist or working for a magazine company. I've had some online experience so hopefully my dreams will come true and my hard work will pay off. I may even find a partner and settle down. You never know what the future holds.

What is your least favourite thing about blogging?

I can't really find a thing I hate doing because it's so much fun and I really enjoy doing it. So my least favourite thing would have to be gaining the followers. It's extremely hard starting from nothing, like most bloggers would know, and getting a good amount of followers takes time and patience which is quite hard to master sometimes.

What is your favourite thing about blogging?

My most favourite thing about blogging is probably when a reader sends me a nice comment or shares my post. It really makes me happy inside and helps me to continue writing. I love the support I get from not only friends but other bloggers you don't really know. There's always a few that comes back or even some secret readers and for that I want to give them all a huge thank you. And a big thank you for nominating me for this award!

ASOS Spring/Summer SS15 Africa LookBook

ASOS has decided to give a theme for part of their SS15 LookBook this year named ASOS Africa. The collection involves bright prints with baggy trousers that cut off at the ankles and short suits with paisley patterns. The background contrasts with the models outfits and gives off a fresh, summery feel with the models' gold sunny eyes.
