jo_malone I’m back with another rose scented perfume which is part of the new Jo Malone Rock the Ages collection. This 5 part collection takes inspiration from each period’s drama and character.

Jo Malone Tudor Rose and Amber Cologne-£42
Besides a heavy rose base, this fragrance also incorporates spicy cloves and amber making it both spicy and sexy. This is a very rich fragrance and reminds me of thick velvet curtains and intricate clothing (still following me?). I think if you paired it with something a bit lighter it would be appropriate for daytime, but for me this is an evening out perfume. I’m thinking hot date, glamorous dinner, cool event etc.

The bottles in this collection are just as stunning as the fragrances. I love the soft, red velvet on the cap of my rose fragrance and all of the other bottles in the collection are equally as special.

Also in the collection is Lily of the Valley & Ivy, Pomegranate Noir, Geranium & Verbena, Birch & Black Pepper. It’s a limited edition collection so if these bottles are calling your name you may not want to wait too long!

Another month is over! Did you get up to anything exciting in February? It may be wishful thinking, but I’m starting to smell Spring in the air which makes me very happy! As always, I gathered together my favourite beauty, non-beauty and lifestyle favourites of last month. I’m into a new tinted moisturiser, lots of bath products and a few new makeup items with gorrrrgeous packaging!

What type of Spring videos would you like to see from me?!

As per usual, I saved up all of my beauty trash in order to show you! Most of my empties are skincare items I’ve been loving but there are some other things thrown in too. I decided to try finishing up some of my makeup this year as well so once I have enough I’ll make a dedicated ‘makeup empties’ on my channel.

Do you like watching empties videos?
What have you used up lately?

clinique clinique clinique clinique Another pre-haircut blogpost coming your way (sorry)! Today’s post is going to take a look at the new Clinique Chubby Stick Sculpting products. As you know, I’m a huge lover of a good bronzer/highlight duo and with Spring coming up (yay) I got really excited to see a cream version of both. I think cream products typically look more natural and fresh and I personally find them generally easier to use.

As you can see from the photos it’s as easy as drawing a line just under the cheekbone with the Clinique Chubby Stick Sculpting Contour in Curvy Contour. At first glance I thought this would be much too dark for me, but as I started blending (with my Sephora brush) it created the perfect contour shade. I think it’s great because it has the ability to be built up to a much more intense contour, but it can also be used with a light hand depending on how much blending you do. Once that was all done I did the same thing with the Clinique Chubby Stick Sculpting Hefty Highlight, but this time along the tops of my cheekbones. It creates a very natural glow, so it’s perfect if you want something subtle and quick to use.

If you have tried these I’d love to know what you think of them! What do you think of cream cheek products?

Today’s video is a collection of a few fashion items I’ve picked up recently. It’s kind of a strange time of year because it’s too cold to be Spring, but I’m also not into buying super warm winter clothes. I managed to pick up some cool new boots, shoes and some outerwear pieces! Check out the video and let me know what you think!

What’s on your fashion wish list?
