December favourites

Hello my little sparkles,

So today I thought I'd share with you my December favourites which I have been loving. I chose 6 favourites and 3 categories.

- Makeup 
- Perfume 
- Random

So let's get into my makeup favourites...

My first makeup favourite for this December is the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfecter in Rose Gold. As many of you know, I love anything sparkly and this blush I have used very frequently and has become part of my daily makeup routine. 

I love the finish it gives my skin!

My next makeup favourite is the Smokey Warm Palette by Bobbi Brown. I love all of the colours especially the sparkly one called Chiffon sparkle.

I also love the dark espresso colour too!

Perfume favourites...

I own quite a lot of perfumes and all of them are have very unique smells so I'm writing a whole category on my perfume favourites because I have so many to chose from and can change my perfume smell anytime I want.

My first favourite for this month is the Maison Martin Margiela in Lazy Sunday Morning. This perfume smells like fresh, clean sheets which brings a smile to my face when I wear it.

My other frequently used perfume this month has been the Jo Malone Saffron perfume from the Intense range. 

It's slightly woody but creamy when I smell it and makes me feel happy when I spray it!


I've been loving the Molton Brown Eucalyptus Shower Gel. I've been using using it for the past few weeks, it's gives quite a refreshing, uplifting smell when I wash in it.

My final favourite this December has been the limited edition Molton Brown Frankincense and All Spice Hand Wash. 

I love the spicy, Christmassy smell it leaves and it also leaves my hands very soft to touch.

Thank you for reading, I hope you enjoyed! Follow for more posts x

Favourite fragrance of the week #1

Hello my little sparkles,

So here is my first proper post on my blog and I thought that I would do my first favourite fragrance of the week.

I love a quite a variety of perfumes and I like wear different perfumes to suit my mood. I've accumulated quite a collection of perfumes and love to use all of them so they don't get wasted. So in my weekly favourite fragrances of the week, you'll see many different types of perfumes including woody, spicy, floral, sweet, fruity and many more! 

So this week I've been enjoying Guerlain's perfume Shalimar. 

This perfume smells very floral on me but more of a warm floral. The hint of the vanilla and tonka bean makes it slightly more richer and a deeper scent. I loved wearing this perfume this week because it had the right notes in it for my mood which was the vanilla, rose and jasmine notes.

This perfume is a good quality fragrance which I brought for around £40 and it lasts on my skin for as long as 6 hours +.
