My first Jo Malone experience

Whilst I was in Cardiff I had an opportunity to visit Jo Malone (excited much!!), I knew if I went into the store I wouldn't be leaving without buying something even if it was a candle just to say I've been. I'm not sure about you but whenever I see their products they always remind me of something classy and sophisticated a pure luxury scent. So I decided to do a bit of retail therapy the day before leaving and I couldn't resist walking in after getting my make up done in Mac, I felt a little better about myself to be honest. I walked in and straight away was greeted by a lovely woman who asked if I had ever been before or know how it works. I was a little confused when she said how work its because I had thought you have a look around smell and see what you like but no I was wrong. They basically have a "light" and "intense" fragrances and if you can mix the two together and make your own. There is such a range of light scents anyone can go in and you will be able to find a scent which is for you from citrus to floral to spicy. Also with the intense colognes they may seem a bit random but they smell dark and mysterious. After some time in the shop smelling all these different smells no idea which one to buy. I make up my mind and purchase the Peony and Blush Suede its such a beautiful scent, I fell in love with it straight away, I also did love an intense one but for love nor money I cannot remember which one it was. This particular fragrance is under the floral range and boasts of peonies (of course) with flirtatious hints of red apple, jasmine, rose and gillyflower but with a sensual blush suede. The good thing is when I bought it she had taken my details down and they are now stored on their system and she has added the intense one on my wish list so when I next visit they can just quickly pull my details up and check. The service was just superb, she was pleasant and helpful, I could of easily purchased half the store. Since wearing this on a few occasions, I have had so many compliment with this scent. I would highly recommend if you have never been to Jo Malone, YOU MUST GO!

Dorothy Perkins Sale!!

So if you haven't seen already Dorothy Perkins have a brilliant summer sale going on. There are so many things I want that I know I shouldn't buy! Last week I made a cheeky purchased, I did have to limit myself to what I wanted to purchase and actually what I needed. Dorothy Perkins unfortunately don't have a wide range of plus sizes as they only go up to a size 22 but I find some of their clothes very generous in size and I sometimes think I should have maybe purchased some things in a smaller size but then I think I like the look where clothes just fall over you. They do the most comfortable stretch skinny trousers and I would recommend them to anyone, ideal for work and weekends.

Here is some of my favourites including what I bought of course...

Scrunchies are back !!

Recently I purchased a Topshop black and gold baroque scrunchie, as soon as I saw it is automatically fell in love and purchased it. It reminds me so much of the 90's when I was growing up and as much as I prefer my hair down it is nice to tie it up out of my face. I need to invest in more of these especially for the summer. I think 90's is making a come back a little especially with the jelly shoes but I can't find myself going back to them although they do look nice on other people but they not for me second time round I think I'll stick my my Ted Baker Jelly Sandals
