Chloé Eau de Parfum #fragrancefridays

Kicking off a new series on my blog where i share a fragrance each friday - #FragranceFridays..
Starting off with the Chloé Eau de Parfum*, not only is the packaging of this perfume absolutely gorgeous and such an eye-catcher, just like all other Chloé perfumes - it also looks amazing on make up vanities to plus the scent is pure heaven!
I recently took this perfume away with me on holiday and not only did practically everyone ask what scent i was wearing, i manage to convince my cousin and my auntie to buy this perfume they loved it that much!
The scent of this perfume is very unique and very hard to describe, it's one of those must smell perfumes when walking by a fragrance counter to really get the gist of the scent.
I would describe it as a soft elegant floral scent - which lasts all day and isn't overpowering at all.
It has notes of Peonies, Fressia and Litchi, with other notes of Lily of the Valley, Rose and Magnolia.. It's smells very floral like and you can definitely pick up some of the scents listed, especially Peonies which are my all time favourite scent in the whole world!
This is my current go-to perfume lately and find this is the scent i reach for most nowadays!

Click Fragrance sell cheap discounted products such as perfume and skincare and are currently offering this perfume up for just £37.95 for a 30ml bottle.

Do you own any perfumes by Chloé, if so which is your favourite?..

Newcastle | 2014

Wowwie it's been a while since i blogged, i'm SO sorry for that.. Honestly i planned my whole holiday out which i scheduled blogging in but when i got to the hotel and tried to set up the internet there it all failed and i ended up not being able to blog nor being able to really use the internet and relied on my phone 3G signal to do emails and update facebook and instagram.
Anyway, if you've been reading my blog for a while now you may know that i go to Newcastle practically every year to visit family and escape life down here. It's my go-to place to get away and relax plus see all my loved ones and leaving there is always hard.
I took a couple of snaps from my holiday to share with you all, a look through my eyes at what i got up to.. 
Our drive up compared to last year was easy, last year we decided to go up at the hottest time of the year and literally sweated it all out in the car, this year was easy and i managed to sleep at least 100miles of the journey.
When we arrived we ended up going to dinner in North Shields where my cousin lives and went to a really cheap but amazing Italians, they were so loud and lively in there - honestly if you love italian food you'll love this place! 
We spent i think about 99% of the time eating food, which including a whole bunch on Chinese food - the picture above is from the Chinese Restaurant we went to in China Town - So proud of being Chinese we do some amazing food! Look at all those delicious cakes they do to!! 
Of course we had to see the Angel of North before we left to go home and me being the blogger i am had to get a few good photography snaps of the beauty.

- The place where i call home..

May Empties #3

There is nothing more joyful than using up a product you've been longing to use up for a while now! For me, i keep switching up my products that i eventually have a ton of 3/4 used products, so in May i made it my goal to use these products up!
For hair i actually managed to use up 2 shampoo's, normally i use up the shampoo's and always have the conditioners left over so the first shampoo i used up is the Moroccan Oil Repair Shampoo* - love this stuff! Made my hair so smooth and manageable, plus it smells amazing! Definitely repurchase this when i get a chance! - FULL REVIEW HERE
The other shampoo i managed to use up i also loved and would definitely repurchase, the Orofluido Shampoo* leaves my hair feeling so smooth and soft, really light weight and gives you salon feeling hair! - FULL REVIEW HERE

Moving onto the shower and body items, i first used up a 500ml bottle of the Caramel Creme Bath & Shower Gel, i love these big bottles of bath and shower gels i always end up picking up a bunch of these at my local supermarket. I really liked this one, however it didn't really give off a scent - smelt great in the bottle but when in the bath, couldn't really smell it. Not my favourite scent either..
For shower products, i finally managed to use up the Imperial Leather Foamburst in Honey Milk & Almond, this stuff smells amazing! Probably one of my favourite scents, really moisturising and that's for ages! I bought this back in March and it's lasted me this long, honestly only need a tiny amount of foam to wash your whole body! Amazing stuff!

For skincare i used up another bottle of my favourite L'Oreal Cleansing Oil, I've been using this cleansing oil for about a year now and honestly don't know what i'd do without it! I'm currently on my third bottle of this! Love it and will keep loving it until i find a better, cheaper alternative!
Also with skincare i used up a bottle of the Neutrogena Visibly Clear Pore & Shine Daily Scrub, i tend to chop and change face scrubs every time i use a bottle up. I picked this up a couple of months ago as it was 'new' and had just launched! I really like this face scrub, it's fresh and cleans well! Great for the mornings, however i wouldn't say this was the best face scrub i've ever used!

Lastly, only one make up item.. The Soap & Glory Supercat Eyeliner Pen, i've already repurchased another one of these eyeliners. Possibly my favourite liquid eyeliner, so so simple to use! Has a tiny tip so great for creating small and big lines, flicks etc.. 

What products did you use up in the month of May?...

Beauty Wishlist | June 2014

I cannot believe we are already half way through the year! It's insane to think that in just 6 months it will be my birthday all over again! I'm not quite ready to turn 24! Yikes!
With another month, comes another monthly beauty wishlist and for June i have a whole lot of goodies lined up for my months wishlist.
First is one that i've heard everyone talking about and it's the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz, honestly every video i have watched lately on Youtube they are talking about how amazing this brow pencil is so i feel i must get my hands on it! Plus, i do need a new brow pencil anyway.. 
For scents this month i have had my eye on this since it first launched and it's the Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau De Toilette Sunshine Delight, i have a sample size of this that i refuse to use up, i carry it in my handbag with me and as much as i love to use it i don't want to unless i get myself the full size, great excuse Holly haha!
For lips i've not had my eye on anything for a while but i was shopping around online the other day for a lip balm for my holidays and came across the Dior Addict Lip Glow which is a lip balm that enhances the lips natural colour.. to me this is perfect as i much prefer lip balms with a little colour rather than the plain boring white or see-through coloured ones.
Also on the make up front i am loving the Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat - Wild Edition, how beautiful is the packaging! I would purely buy this for the packaging! However i do use this concealer already for my under eyes and have coincidentally run out! Yippee i have an excuse to buy this!
Lastly is an item of skincare and it's one i have had my eye on since way back in December, they did a smaller size of this Origin Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask but discontinued it right when i wanted to purchase it! I'm contemplating on weather or not i should get this as i have a ton of face masks already! Should i? Shouldn't i?....

What's on your beauty wishlist this month?....
