let there be light ♥

With all the Black Friday madness that happened this week, I was actually surprised to find something I wanted. I'm not sure whether this offer is part of Black Friday, but Superdrug are currently offering 1/2 price off selected fragrances. I was lucky enough to grab Rihanna's Nude 100ml perfume for only £20, there were only a few left on the counter and it was pretty hectic in the store! I have heard so many people complain about celebrity fragrances when it occurred to me how many I actually own myself! I really am a sucker from celebrity perfumes, currently on my dressing table are fragrances by Katy Perry, Kim Kardashian, Britney Spears and now Rihanna. Although my signature perfume is Alien by Thierry Mugler, I do love celebrity perfumes! Now for Rihanna's Nude, the overall look of the perfume and packaging is very pretty. Rihanna looks gorgeous on the packaging and although the perfume bottle is slightly bulky looking, I really like the theme of Rihanna's coloured perfume bottles, which in the past have ranged from red to black. 

Launched in 2013, Nude has strong notes of Orange Blossom, Jasmine and the base notes include Sandalwood and Vanilla Orchid. Overall it has a very fruity scent which isn't too overpowering. I'm not usually a fan of orange scented perfumes but I was really surprised how much I loved this perfume! For £20 you really can't go wrong - the one thing about celebrity perfumes that I don't agree with is how overpriced they can be. I don't seem too eager to spend a lot of money on them, now for designer brands like Chanel or Dior, yes but for a celebrity brands I'm not too sure. The 100ml Nude fragrance is originally sold for around £37 in stores, so £20 is amazing! I sprayed Nude about two hours ago and I can still really smell it, I'm really surprised how long lasting this perfume is. I really recommend Nude for an everyday perfume, especially with Christmas just around the corner! What scents are you loving at the moment? Are you a fan of celebrity fragrances? 9/10

christmas through your eyes ♥

I will openly admit that I hate the cold - but the idea of being wrapped up in my duvet, surrounded by Christmas candles and food is pretty dreamy. Just don't expect me to move for a few hours... I think we can all agree that Christmas isn't Christmas without scented candles and there is something very cosy and comforting about them so when the amazing Yankee Candle's contacted me to review their Petal Bowl and Christmas tea light collection*, I jumped at the chance. Everyone that knows me will tell you how obsessed I am with Yankee Candle's - the packaging looks beautiful on any dressing tabale and the quality is far better than the majority of candles that I have used before. They capture all the elements of winter nights and the cute and dinky Petal Bowl looks so pretty on my dressing table! I was really surprised how long the Tart Wax Melts lasted, I have used three so far. I cannot recommend this set enough, especially with Christmas almost at our door. This makes the perfect Christmas gift for anyone, especially for candle addicts. What Yankee Candle favourites do you have, I would love to hear them! 10/10

fade into you ♥

Due to awful weather, I am bedroom bound for today's outfit post. Apologies for my delay in posting about this gorgeous Snake Print Split Back Drop Hem top* - the past few weeks have been pretty manic! Now, I've seen a few of these tops floating around - I have been usually wearing it with plain black jeans but Ferne from TOWIE actually wore this style top with khaki trousers so I thought I would give it a try! I really love how simple and stylish this combo is. Celeb Look is my new love interest - they have such amazing clothes without the hefty price tag - I saw this top in a boutique down my road for triple the price! You can buy this snake print top for only £11.99 (Not including postage). I wore this to work and paired it with a pair of nice black boots - casual but still trendy! What goodies have you found on Celeb Look? I hope you have a lovely evening girls - let me know what you think of the new snake print trend and how you would wear this top!

winter wonderland ♥

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to be invited by the lovely Bourjois team, to attend their new winter collection preview and to see the new GHD Curve range! To say I was excited was an overstatement - Bourjois always have the most beautiful displays which makes my camera and instagram very happy ;) As I made my way to St. Martins Lane Hotel, I was not quite sure what to expect, but as soon as I walked in, I was not disappointed. Bourjois have perfected the winter spirit down to a T, their collection is glitzy but still very wearable. The quad eye-shadow palettes really caught my eye - the unique glittery shade in the middle really added glamour without being too over the top. I was lucky enough to have their Bourjois make-up artist apply a soft, dark smokey eye on me and I was really pleased with it.

The shades blended really well and the shimmery shade was also used as a highlighter on my cheekbones. I also had my hair curled with the GHD Classic Curler - how long have we been waiting for GHD curlers?! I am so excited to do a full review of these bad boys, they honestly kept my hair full of volume and bounce for hours and you could definitely notice the difference between my usual curlers! Keep your eyes peeled for my full review of the Bourjois collection and the GHD Curve collection, they will definitely be on your christmas list this year! Have a lovely evening girls!
