Last weekend myself and James headed down to London for the weekend, it was both wonderful and magical! Best weekend ever!
2014 has been the year I've ventured out of my perfume rut and tried (and loved) 3 brand sparkly new ones. After using and re purchasing the same perfumes for years i decided to make more of an effort and add some others to my collection. Don't get me wrong, Paco Rabanne - Ultraviolet always has and always will be my going out perfume and Gucci 2 (although i have a horrible feeling this is no more) my day, but i now have some others to reach for depending on how i'm feeling that day.
I've never considered Estee Lauder for perfume, nor have i ever really considered celebrity endorsed ones either, deep down i just think they're not as good as designer ones. I know that makes me sound incredibly judgmental but after a questionable one from Towie (what did i expect really?!) i'd kinda given up on those sort of perfumes. However, this little beauty is fantastic, right up my street and i'm willing to put my paws up and admit i was wrong.
Modern Muse has a top note of vanilla and amber, two of my favourite scents and two intense sticks which are always going in my house. Other notes include white flowers, lily, jasmine, honey suckle, patchouli and wood. To me, this is absolute perfection. A fragrance made for me. It's just so fresh and lasts so long too. Although i'll use any excuse for a scent touch up!
I know i've said it before, but perfumes are of course very personal. What i love might be the worst thing ever invented to someone else. However, if this sounds pretty yummy and that girl in your life would like it too then you might end up being her favourite person ever if this is waiting under the Christmas tree next week!
Here's another outfit from Hollins Hall, it seems so long ago since we visited there and after this i still have one more outfit to post! But anyway, on to this outfit. I was browsing Glamorous a couple of months ago and i was pretty impressed with how far they've come in the past year or so and fell in love with this skirt, it's totally my style and it was added to my basket straight away. I was also on the hunt for some higher boots too so i snapped these up. Although, after wearing my KG ones from this post these have taken a bit of a back seat, but i still think they're pretty awesome! There's 30% off Glamorous at the moment by the way!
Last weekend myself and James headed down to London for the weekend. It has been planned for agessssss but if we'd have thought about, Saturday + London 2 weeks before Christmas probably wasn't the best idea! We stayed with his Dad who lives in North London and luckily on the Northern line, so we managed to get up to town and back pretty easily. We did the Natural History Museum (I've not done this since i was little) shopping on Oxford St (Hellloooo Forever21 with the rudest staff ever!) and Winter Wonderland. But not forgetting hiding away for a couple of hours in B Soho drinking cocktails from a jar and eating the yummiest Italian food. It was such the perfect weekend and i'm already counting down the days until our next weekend away to North Yorkshire in the middle of Jan where we'll be staying right here. How incredible does it look?!
Todays is my Mums birthday so we're off out for a meal tonight to Singhs in Nottingham, it's becoming a bit of a favourite of ours and i'm really looking forward to it. Can't beat some nice food with even nicer company! CHRISTMAS NEXT WEEK!
THE BODY SHOP NAIL POLISH, ART PEN AND BRUSH.
Ok, so nail art isn't my calling in life. But i wanted to do this post to give you a heads up to something worth while. For every Christmas inspired design The Body Shop receive via Instagram using #nailit4charity (between 1-31st of December) they will give a contribution to War Child that funds a class for a child. That's pretty awesome right? So get creative and give yourself some festive nails for a great cause.
