MUSIC // No sound without Silence | Avril Lavigne | Battle Born

So I’ve been wanting to a post like this for a long time. It’s something I’ve seen around more popular blogs were people share their favourite things. Now I’ve always thought no one would be interested in reading what I love but then I recently I came to the conclusion that this is my blog and I’ll post what I want. I do like posting reviews but sometimes I do want to do something different and who doesn’t love writing about their favourite things? So let’s discuss some of those things. Starting with music:

No sound without Silence by The Script – I’ve been a fan of The Script for a long time and I love pretty much everything they release. There most recent album, No Sound Without Silence is one my favourites. I find it really hard to describe music so bare with my here. I find they have some really fast paced songs like Paint the Town Green. Superheroes, The Energy Never Dies and Hail, Rain or Sunshine which are just really upbeat and happy, great to listen to when walking or even just dancing around your room. The album also has some really romantic songs, It’s not right for you, Man on a Wire and  Never Seen Anything ‘Quite Like You’. And then it also has some slightly sad songs, like Without Those Songs,  No Good in Goodbye, Flares, Army of Angels, and Howl at the moon. It’s Not Right For You is one of my favourite songs in the album, I find it very motivating as the lyrics talk about doing what makes you happy and what’s right for you, “She said, “Is this the life you’ve been dreaming of Spending half the day away from the things you love? It’s not too late to do something new.” “She said, “It’s hard enough trying to live your life. But not following your dreams made you dead inside. If you don’t love what you do.” I just love listening to this when I’m not motivated to anything, and it reminds me to work towards my dreams and work hard to get what I want. My other favourites from this album are Superheroes and Paint the Town Green which are just really upbeat and happy songs that I love to dance too alone in my bedroom and Never Seen Anything ‘Quite Like You’ because it’s such a romantic song and I love listening to it when I need to write a romantic scene. I’m not really once for romance, mostly because hey I’m single but I adore this song. Overall this album, like every album The Script bring out is just amazing, filled with beautiful songs that send you on a journey. Please check this out, I guarantee you, you won’t regret it.

Avril Lavigne self titled – Now I know a lot of people don’t like Avril Lavigne anymore since her music style changed, but I still love and adore her. She’s one of the only singers that I own every album of and one of the only two sings I’ve seen in concert. This is her newest album and it has a nice range of songs which I think play on her old style a lot. I’d say the whole album is pretty upbeat and happy. Some of my favourite upbeat songs are Rock N Roll, here’s to never growing up, 17, Bitchin’ Summer, Sippin’ On Sunshine, Hello Kitty and Bad Girl. Bad Girl which has Marilyn Manson in it is one of my top songs from the album, as I love rock music and this reminds me of a soft of loud rock style. I also love hush hush which is a sad song on the album, but as I’ve said before I love sad songs as not only do I love all the emotions they bring out but they also help greatly with writing sad songs. Especially this song which seems to be a about a breakup. There are some songs that I don’t really like that much on the album, such as Let Go and Falling Fast. But that’s just because they’re not really my style and also I’m not a big fan of Chad Kroeger. But I just ignore those two songs and listen to the rest of this amazing album.

Battle Born by The Killers – This album isn’t as new as the others and isn’t even the most recent Killers Album out there, but it is one of my favourites. I love The Killers and I think, like with Avril Lavigne I own every single one of their albums. I love how upbeat The Killers songs are, and Mr Brightside has always been and will always be one of my favourite songs of all time. I think my favourite song from this album hands down is Miss Atomic Bomb. This song and the video are just perfect, it brings out such a range of emotions in me, it’s great for writing and car journeys or just walking around. I find I can really hear the emotion of Brandon Flowers in this song, and I adore how it’s basically a sequel to Mr Brightside, which as I said is one of my favourite songs. I also really love Runaways, which is honestly my drunk jam at this point as well Battle Born, A Matter of Time, The Rising Tide, From here on out, Deadline and Commitments and Flesh and Bone. There are some romantic songs on the album like The Way It Was and heart of a girl. Then there’s also some sad songs like Be Still, which I think I’ve actually cried at a few times and here with me. All the songs are amazing and honestly there’s not on I don’t like. I love all The Killer’s albums but this is probably my favourite, with hot fuss being a close second.

BOOKS // The Great Gatsby | The Carrie Diaries | Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald – Now I know you’ve probably heard of this book, it’s not new or suddenly popular by any means. I read this two or three years ago I think and I really loved it. I never knew anything about the book before I read it, as we’d never read or talked about this in school. I heard about the movie coming out and I really wanted to read the book, as most of the time I’m a book-before-movie type of person. I really love this book, I find it’s different to anything I’ve read and it’s just such an enchanting story, even though it’s actually just a normal story about a guy trying to be reunited with this girl, I really love it (I’m so great as describing things aren’t I?) I find it has so many different meanings and interruptions depending on which way you look at it. I love hearing what people think about it, as everyone has a different view of what the characters represent and how the relationships play out. I’ve since seen the movie version of this and although it’s different to the book I love that just as much and it’s definitely one of my favourite movies.

The Carrie Diaries by Candice Bushnell – Now if you know me or if you’ve been reading my blog for a while you’ll know how much I love The Carrie Diaries. I’m not going to talk too much about my obsession with this book because I did that in both the book review and the sequel book review, but I really really love this book. It’s nothing that groundbreaking in terms of literature but I think it’s just a really amazing coming of age story. As someone who loves Gossip Girl and shows like that this is like a more… adult version of that. More adult because there’s a lot of sex language in this. The best thing about this is although it’s a prequel to Sex and The City, you don’t have to be a fan of the show to understand this. Overall this book is just really good and if you’re a young girl – or boy! (books have no gender), then I would really commend you checking this book out. It deals with lots of drama about first love, first heartbreak, friendships, divorce, death, coming out, exams, school drama, all the stuff they you may have experienced at some point in your youth.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix – Now you’ve probably 100% heard of this. I think everyone in he world has heard of Harry Potter, whether that be the movies or the books. My favourite Harry Potter book and film is Order of the Phoenix. Slight spoilers ahead if you haven’t seen/read all the hp books but I just really like how this one in particular is about the students fighting back without their teachers involved much. I find the villain, Umbridge really amazing. Amazing in the fact she nearly made me throw my book across the room. I usually am on the villains side as most villains are bad because something bad happened to them or someone they loved died [Loki, Regina, Klaus etc], but the fact Umbridge is just a horrible person for no reason and I hate her is amazing. You’re supposed to hate villains so coming up against a villain I actually hate was a new experience and I loved it. The ending of this book is so sad to me, and I cry almost every time I read/watch that scene (you know which one). But I like scenes that make me emotional as I feel really involved with the world, so really the sad scene is a bonus for me. But yes this book is amazing and one of my all time favourite books.

BEAUTY // Barry M [similar] | Coconut Lip Butter | Barry M Showgirl Mascara

Barry M Bronzer –  Now I love this product but unfortunately they don’t actually sell it anymore. I’ve linked a similar ish one above as I can’t find a link to the one I’m talking about anywhere. Anyway I got this product 3 or 4 years ago in a Barry M Makeup Box. In school, when I didn’t know anything about makeup, I used to wear this as eye shadow. Yeah I did not look good. But now I actually know what this is and how to use it properly I can confirm it’s a much better eyeshadow than it bronzer. It’s a very light brown colour with slight shimmer. I used this for both all over bronzer and contour. I feel not only does it make me look slightly more than but it also gives my face an all over glow, which I love. This is also really great if you have pale skin, as it doesn’t wash you out too much or make you look like you’ve got dirt on your face. I’m so sad they no longer sell this. I’ve already hit pan so this doesn’t have long left, but I’m going to try out the one I linked above and hopefully it’s just as good as this one. I’ve also been reading old blog posts from when this bronzer was still around and people have said it’s a dupe for Nars Laguna bronzer, which I may also give a shot.

The Body Shop Coconut Lip Butter – Ever smell a product and actually considered eating it? I get that every time I used this product. This is such a creamy moisturizing lip product. I have the coconut one but I really want to get the mango one as I’ve been really loving mangos lately. As the name suggests, this product has the texture of butter, but don’t worry, it doesn’t smell or taste like it. I really love using this product in winter as I feel like it really helps to protect my lips against the cold weather.

Barry M Showgirl Mascara – And the last beauty product that I just love is the Showgirl Mascara by Barry M. Now I know a lot of people actually dislike this mascara and it generally gets bad reviews. I love this mascara. It has such pretty silver and black star pattern on it with the words showgirl written in giant, old Hollywood style font. This mascara isn’t the darkest but it does make my lashes look long. I find it doesn’t give dramatic eye lashes, which is why most people don’t like it, but it does give a very natural long look, which I love for when I don’t feel like wearing dramatic lashes.

Thanks for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day :)

LINKS// SANCTUARY SCRUB | SOAP & GLORY SCRUB |LUSH MASSAGE BAR

I felt like doing a favourite post of things I’ve been really loving lately, but I wanted to change it up, so instead of writing a list of all the different things I’ve been loving I’ve just picked 3 from each category that I’m going to talk about.

Sanctuary Scrub – First for skincare I have two scrubs. The first is an orange body scrub by sanctuary. This is a very soft and silky scrub, so soft it doesn’t feel like a scrub, but it does work at getting rid of dead skin and leaves the skin feeling very soft. It smells great too, exactly like oranges and lemons.

Soap & Glory Scrub – The second Scrub is the Smoothie Star Breakfast Scrub by Soap & Glory. Now really guys this is the best smelling scrub ever. If you’re into sweet scents which I am, you’ll love this. It’s an Oat, Shea Butter and Sugar scrub and it kind of has the texture of super thick porridge, and it feels a bit weird to apply at first but once rubbing it in it feels soft and creamy and really buffs away the dead skin. This also has almonds, bananas and honey in it, all things I love and it all mixes together to produce a sweet toffee like smell. It really reminds me of the Yog Nog bath bomb by Lush and honestly thing the two products would go really well together.

Lush Massage Bar – The third skincare favourite is the Each Peach (And Two’s A Pair) Massage Bar by Lush. I get really bad back and arm pain, back pain from bending over a lot, or if I go shopping I tend to get really bad pain from that. I also tend to get arm pain whenever I lay or rest on my right arm, even if only for a few minutes. Massaging the muscles usually helps, so I picked up this massage bar in hopes it would help. And I can tell you with 100% certainty it does. If you don’t how a massage bar works, they’re basic the solid version of massage oils. When you rub it over the skin it melts which then sinks into the skin, warms up and relaxes the muscles and stops them from hurting. This one to me smells like Lemons, and apparently it’s enriched with: lime, sweet wild orange, mandarin and grapefruit, so it’s a nice cocktail of fruits that work beautifully together to give a nice sweet fruit scented bar. It really does work too, I apply it every time my arm hurt (which is most days) and not only does my arm feel better but it smells amazing too.

ENTERTAINMENT // Dirty Dancing | Once Upon a Time | American Horror Story

Dirty Dancing – I used to be obsessed with this movie when I was little (along with Grease) and I recently rewatched it and then rewatched it again right after. I don’t have to go into too much detail about what’s it about, unless you live in a cave you’ve probably heard of Dirty Dancing. But yeah I recently rewatched it and I’ve been really really enjoying it.

Once Upon a Time – Now this show has been around for a while so you may or may not have already heard of it. It’s Once Upon a Time which is a show all about fairytales and fantasy characters in a modern setting whilst still keeping the fairytale aspect. The characters tend to bounce between the human world and the enchanted forest. I’ve been watching this since season 1 but as of late I’ve been really obsessed with it. My favourite character’s are probably Regina and hook but in general I like everyone which doesn’t really happen with many TV shows. The recent plot I’ve really been enjoying and now it’s finished this season I’m kind of just counting down the days till the next season because I am literally dying without my OUAT fix.

American Horror Story – A TV show that’s not quite as happy now, American Horror Story is, as you guessed it, a horror TV show. It’s quite popular, you’ve probably heard it, it’s made by the same man who made Glee which is a little weird if I’m honest. I don’t like much horror, and by horror I mean jump scares and gore. I prefer the sort of psychological horror (I love The Woman in Black 1 & 2 and Crimson Peak). This just does horror so well and doesn’t rely on jump scare to be entertaining which I love. The plot and characters change every season and the current season if hotel, which has just been so good so far. I’ve been loving all the different characters and the storylines and cast have been amazing as always. Like I said before, I’m not really big on horror but I really enjoyed this.

LINKS// EYESHADOW PALETTE | EYEBROW PALETTE | DAZZLE DUST

Revolution Beyond Flawless Palette – First n my favourites for cosmetics is the Beyond Flawless Palette by Revolution. This a huge palette that comes with 27 shimmery shades and 5 matte. This palette mostly has neturals colours, lots of beige, cream and brown shades with some grey shades thrown in. I’ve been using this a lot lately and I’ve just found there are so many different looks and styles I can make with this. It has so many beautiful colours that blend perfectly together. The staying power isn’t that great on its own, but over a primer it’s amazing and leaves my eye lids looking bright, pigmented and perfect.

Tanya Burr Eyebrow Palette – My second favourite in cosmetics is the Tanya Burr eyebrow palette I never really did anything to my brows until recently when I picked up this. It’s your standard eyebrow palette with 3 matte brown shades and one white shimmery highlighter but I love it. I’ve been mostly using the second darkest shade, chestnut for my brows and then I’ve been using the highlighter fairy cake just under the brow as a highlighter. I find this product gives a very nice natural eyebrow look and I just adore it. I don’t think I’ll be using another brow product for quite a while.

Barry M Dazzle Dusts – I’ve had these for a good few years now but I only just recently started using them again. They’re just small dusty little pots of glitter. I have 6, one blue, pink, purple, bronze, gold and white unfortunately none of the colours have names and I can’t find their names on the site. I’ve been using these lately by just applying a little on top of my eye shadow using my finger. I generally use and the gold and bronze colour ones the most and apply them over my base eye shadow. I sometimes apply the gold glitter over some of the Maybeline 34 hour Colour Tattoo in On and On The Bronze and blend it together with my brush and it gives a nice subtle bronzey-gold look. Other times I also add the tiniest bit of bronze glitter over the top of some of the colours from my naked palette to add a little bit of shimmer to my look. Whatever I decide to do these are just so nice and shimmery and helpful and I adore them.

LINK//  VEGAN CHEESE SPREAD | MILKSHAKE | LINDA MCCARTNEY BURGERS

Tesco Free From Cheese Spread – My first favourite is the Tesco Free From Cheese Spread. It’s basically just cheese spread that not made from milk. I love cheese spread on toast and cheese spread sandwiches but dairy makes me feel sick if I have too much of it at a time so I love this as an alternative. I’ve been eating this a lot and whilst the texture is a lot different to normal cheese spread it tastes just as good and I really love it.

Homemade Banana Milkshake – My second favourite food item is a drink. It’s homemade banana milkshake, which is made by just putting a banana, soya milk and ice in a blender and blending until smooth. It’s such a simple recipe but I’ve been drinking one of these every morning before working out and before breakfast and I just feel like it’s the perfect drink to start the day with. I’m not much of a smoothie person but I live for milkshakes. Like I said before I tend to avoid dairy at the best of times so these are not only easy to make but a great replacement if you can’t or don’t drink dairy but still want the delicious taste of a banana milkshake.

Linda McCartney ‘Pulled Pork’ Burgers – Last of I’ve really been loving these ‘Pulled Pork’ burgers by Linda McCartney. Obviously I don’t eat meat so these are fake. From what I remember of pulled pork though these are extremely close. I really really love these. These in a bun with a bit of mayo and some sweet potato chips is she just heaven. It taste so good. I would literally eat these everyday if I could because they’re just so juicy, sticky and yummy. If you’re a vegetarian you should try these asap because they are so so good.

Thanks for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day.

Monthly Favourites (December – February) 2016

1

So just a little general monthly favourites post here. These are things I’ve been loving throughout December, January and February and just for a while in general. I’m trying out in a new general post style, I’m trying to include more pictures and write more detail into what I post. I’m trying to take better photos for my blog and I know I’m not the best at all but I’m hey practice makes perfect right? Anyway on with the favourites.

Body Products

Body Shop Frosted Plum Lip Balm – So for the first beauty product on my list is the Body Shop Frosted Plum Lip Balm. I got this in a gift set from a relative for Christmas. I’ve recently been using it everyday and it’s really made my lips very soft and moisturized. It also tastes amazing and the small tin makes it convenient to carry around with me.

Raspberry & Rose Creme Tarte Shower Creme – I absolutely love this softening shower creme by Cafe de Bain. It smells so amazing and is a product that actually smells good enough to eat. It comes in a really large bottle and you get a lot of uses out of it and it makes you skin feel and smell so good during and after use, so I’d definitely recommend it.

Coconut Oil – So another beauty product I’ve been loving lately is Coconut Oil. This is just a small tub from Superdrug’s own brand. I’ve been using this on my arms, legs and armpits after I shower and shave my arms and it feels amazing. It’s so silky and soothing and because it’s an oil it feels a lot lighter than a moisturizer. If you know me you’ll also know I love anything coconut so of course I love the smell. Apparently you can also use this on hair although I have yet to try it yet, I probably will soon though.

Lee Staford hair mask – So something I recently invested in (and by recently I mean like end of November) is the Lee Staford hair growth treatment, for hair that never grows past a certain length. I’ve been wanting to grow my hair for a while so I’ve been using this and I have seen such a change in my hair. I use this once a week and it makes my hair feel so amazing, literally like I’ve just been to a salon. I’ve not a drastic change in my hair length, it has grown a little but not much, but honestly at this point I’m using this for the amazing feeling it gives my hair. I’ve almost gone through a full tub and I’m definitely going to re purchase this again soon.

Entertainment

Life with a sprinkle of glitter – So first on my list for ‘entertainment’ is life with a sprinkle of glitter by Louise Pentland. I adore Louise and she is one of my all time favourite YouTubers. Unlike a lot of people I’m quite picky when it comes to Youtuber books and only really get the ones that interest me (so far I have this, All I know now, Dream house, The Amazing Book is not on fire and Girl Online). Anyway I’ve had this book for a while now and every now and then I go and read different chapters and I’ve found it’s just a fun little girly book. It’s got lots of tips about general life and stuff but it’s the advice about beauty and decorating I like the most. Plus the book has got beautiful pages and it’s just a pretty interesting book in general.

The Good Girls –  The second thing on my entertainment list is The Good Girls by Sara Shepard. I’m not sure when this post is going up but I read this at the beginning of March and really enjoyed it. It’s the second and last book in the perfectionists series. Although I didn’t like the ending I really enjoyed reading it and it was so gripping and a real amazing page turner. I’ve finished it now and I have a review coming up sometime soon-ish. So stick around if you want to read the full post of that.

The Death Order – This is something I read at the end of January. I really really enjoyed it and I thought it ended the maze runner series beautifully. I loved it, and unlike a lot of trilogies it didn’t let me down with a terrible ending (looking at you Divergent and Hunger Games) and I really liked it all the way through. I’ve got a full review of this going up at some point so you all can look forward to that.

Crimson Peak – Another thing I’ve been loving is the movie Crimson Peak, directed by Guillermo del Toro, starring Tom Hiddleston, Mia Wasikowska and Jessica Chastain. I’m not a fan of horror movies at all and purely watched this because I adore Tom Hiddleston and because a friend recommend it. It was really really good and I really enjoyed it. It’s more of a Gothic horror than a scary movie, and I rarely enjoy horror movies but this one wasn’t full of graphic torture scenes or pointless jump scares and it was actually really entertaining. Jessica Chastain’s acting was amazing. I hated her character but considering she seems sweet at pie in real life and she was a crazy lady in the movie I think she did a great job. Of course Tom Hiddleston and Mia Wasikowska did amazing too but I practically love every movie he’s in. I mean he is Loki.

Anna Karenina – Another movie I’ve really been enjoying is Anna Karenina. It stars Keira Knightley who is one of my all time favourite actors. It’s also directed by Joe Wright who is one of my all favourite directors. Anyway this is a really great movie, if you like period movies you’ll love this. I watched it for the first time last year but I got it on DVD recently and I’ve just adored watching it. The costumes, set, directing, acting, soundtrack and everything about it is really beautiful, enchanting and inspiring. I use it a lot to take inspiration for when I’m writing.

Teen Wolf – So next on my favourite entertainment list was MTV’s Teen Wolf. I’ve been watching this show since Season 3 started (I marathoned season 1 and 2 in like 3 days). I stopped watching it after season 5 started because I got really behind and distracted with work however I recently started watching it again and I am addicted. I caught up in a few days and now I’ve had to go back waiting for a new episode every week like some medieval peasant. It’s one of those shows where I love the whole cast and characters. I especially love the relationship between Stiles and Lydia and I’m really hoping they get together at some point because I adore them. Anyway it’s a really good show, go watch it.

2

Makeup

Barry M Lipsticks – So I’ve been really into lipsticks lately, particularly Barry M lipsticks. I find it really hard to find a lipstick that actually sticks to my lips because normal lipsticks just don’t stick. I began using Barry M lipsticks lately and I adore them. I’ve currently got two, one named Coral in nice, you guessed it, coral colour and another which is called Genie. It’s a light green liptick that when applied to the lips/skin comes out a dark pink. Both are really pretty and both look really nice on.

Naked 3 Palette – Next on my list is the Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette. I recently brought this as a birthday gift for myself, as I usually don’t spend this much money on makeup. Anyway I’ve really been loving this palette, it’s full of pink, gold and neutral shades. I tend to do a rose gold sort of smokey eye look and this palette gives me great long lasting pigmented colours that help me do that. It comes in a really pretty rose gold tin with a sample of primer potion (Which is also amazing by the way) and is just in general an amazing product.

24 hour colour tattoos – Next up is the Maybeline 24 hour colour tattoos. They’re cream eyeshadows and I have one in a light shimmery pink shade called Pink Gold and another in shimmery bronze colour called On and On Bronze. Both look really pretty on the eyelids and can either be a great base or just worn alone. I can’t say they last 24 hours as I don’t think I’ve ever worn makeup that long but it does have a really long staying power.

Revolution Blush Palette – Another product I have really been liking is the Golden Sugar Blush Palette by revolution. It comes with 2 highlighters, 4 blushes and 2 bronzers. I’ve mostly been using the highlighters and I love them both. I think this palette was around £6.00’s and I’ve gotten a lot of use out of it as I’ve been applying the highlighter from this set I think almost everyday.

Max Factor Lipstick – Another lipstick I’ve been enjoying is a Max Factor lipstick in the shade Angel, which is a nice light pink shade. It’s slightly lighter than the Barry M Coral one and so I’ve been switching between the two shades depending on which one I feel like that day. It comes in such a pretty gold tube too which I adore.

Collection Blush – Last up for beauty is the Collection Gorgeous Glow Blush Block. It’s a beautiful (would you imagine it) block 5 different shimmery blushes that all blend together to create this lovely dewy pink colour. I’ve never really been into blush that much I’ve found myself in love with this one and I adore putting it on.

Other Stuff

Perfumes – I have been particularly enjoying two perfumes this month, the Ghost Sweetheart Perfume and the Wonderstruck perfume by Taylor Swift. I’ve talked about the Ghost Sweetheart Perfume before and I still love the sweet floral scent. Wonderstruck also has a really amazing scent. It’s hard to describe but it’s sort of smells fruity to me and reminds of raspberries and vanilla. I’ve been wearing this a lot lately and whenever I wear it I get tons of people asking what I’m wearing and if they can borrow some. So I’m clearly not the only person who adores this perfume.

Mango Shimmer hand Gel – Next might be a bit strange too some but it’s the Cuticura Mango Shimmer hand Gel. I picked this up because it comes in a 100ml bottle which whilst pretty big for a hand gel is still a perfect hand bag size. I carry this everywhere with me and use many times throughout the day. Like the bottle says it smells it has a very sweet mango sent that spreads over your hands and just smells great. A bit of an odd suggestion to my favourites but hey ho there you go.

Thanks for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day :)

 

My Favourite Perfumes!

Favourite Perfumes CollageI own around 20 or so perfumes that I’ve collected over the last few years, but I have a few personal favourites amongst my collection. Some I love so much I’ve used almost to the last drop, others I’ve kept stored away for special occasions and as a result have barely used them. I defiantly need to restock up on some new perfumes, I’m really wanting the Taylor Swift Wonderstruck perfume, Eau de Gaga and the StormFlower fragance by Cheryl Cole. Christmas is coming up, as well as my birthday so hopefully someone get’s me them, otherwise I’ll be popping into the perfume shop sometime soon. Anyway until then here’s my 5 favourite perfumes from my own personal collection.

1. Victoria PerfumeIntimately Beckham by Victoria Beckham

I’ve had a big obsession with Victoria Beckham since I was young – she was my favourite spice girl and now she’s one of my idols as one of the worlds best business women. I mean the girl is married, a full time mum, a fashion designer and a singer, whilst still looking super hot 24/7? I’m jealous.

Anyway when I found out she had her own perfume I just had to have it. It comes in a little pink box with gold writing. The bottle it’s self is small and glass with clear liquid, although the liquid itself has a golden pink tone too it. It smells divine. It’s hard to describe exactly what it smells like, but it’s a sort of roses and silk smell. If you’ve ever been to a really posh party or ball and everything smells ‘expensive’, this is what it smells like. I save this perfume for special occasions as it’s only a 50ml bottle, so it’s best to be left for dates of fancy parties.

Overall rating: 10/10

2. Flight of Fancy by Ana SuiAnna Sui

I guess you could call this my ‘accident’ perfume. One christmas I was being bugged by my parents about what to get me so I simply went into a perfume store, jotted down the names of a few nice smelling perfumes and gave them a list. I ended up with this bottle of heaven and I do not regret it one bit.

First off, the box it comes in is amazing. It’s bright yellow with pink, orange and blue flowers, with a silver peacock on the front and silver writing. It’s so pretty and soft. A lot of the time I throw the boxes away and keep the perfume, but this one I just had to keep. The  bottle itself is also gorgeous. It’s pink tinted crystal with silver writing and floral designs, topped with a silver peacock lid. It truly is a beautiful bottle. The smell over all is extremely nice. It’s got a very citrus smell too it, like oranges and lemons mixed with roses and grapefruit. It’s divine. The only downside is that it doesn’t last very long and you need to keep reapplying it throughout the day to keep the smell.

Overall rating: 9/10

3. Ghost Sweetheart

I absolutely adore any Ghost perfume, particularly the Ghost Sweetheart perfume. I had the 50ml bottle which comes in a tall pin box with white writing. The bottle is crystal with more white writing It’s a very formal bottle, I’m usually a fan of more extravagant bottles but I’ll admit it does look pretty on a shelf. The colour of the liquid starts of as a dark orange and changes into gold, a sort of ombre effect which is very beautiful to look at.

The fragrance itself is very floral centric, I can defiantly catch a scent of lily’s and roses. But it’s also quite fruity, there’s defiantly some lemon in there and possibly some pineapple. It lasts a long time too – a little spritz lasts a long time so it’s perfect if you don’t have time to reapply it throughout the day.

Overall rating: 10/10

 4. Fame – Lady Gaga

I absolutely love Lady Gaga with a passion so when she brought on The Fame I was one of the first to get it. I got it in a gif set along with a black (yes black) coloured body wash, which I will be posting a review of at some point. It came in a black box with gold writing. The actual inside of the box was red velvet, so it felt very luxurious. The bottle itselfs is a very small oval shaped crystal bottle. The lid is gold with 4 spikes that stick out downwards, so if you were to be attacked you could probably use it as a defense weapon. The fragrance is also unisex, which is always a plus to any product.

I’ll admit when I first heard Lady Gaga was releasing a perfume I was a little worried. Not because I don’t trust her creative mindset but because I’d heard rumors the perfume smelled off blood. This, I assure you is not true at all. It smells like honey mixed with flowers, but there’s a little bit of apricot and saffron spice in there too. It’s a wild mixture of scents that shouldn’t go together but it does. The fluid also lasts a long time so there’s no worry about running out too quickly.

Overall rating: 8/10

5. Harajuku Lovers Sunshine Cuties Lil`s Angel

This darling little perfume is cute as pie. It comes in a tiny little blue box with yellow writing. The box is also covered in little grooves and flowers. The bottle lid itself is in the adorable shape of a girl. She’s got brown skin and black hair with a yellow headband and a black bikini. The actual bottle bit is made of crystal and only holds a tiny 10ml of clear liquid.

The overall smell of is very fruity. It reminds me of lemons and oranges, but it also has a sort of berry smell too it. Maybe Blackberries or cherries?There’s defiantly some vanilla in their too. It reminds me of summer. My only downside to this perfume is that it’s in a very little bottle and the smell doesn’t last very long.
