Social media has caused us girls to be influenced by bloggers in a number of ways. From trying out a new product to buying a new outfit; we look to bloggers as we know they’re real, and so is their opinion. Below are 3 bloggers I’ve recently grown to adore.
It’s that time of the year when the cold, dark nights are the perfect time to snuggle up with a heart-warming Christmas movie. I’ve watched a fair few festive films over the years, but there’s a handful of classics that always get me in the mood.
This is a very random post of mine, but this month there have been several programmes that I can’t get enough of, and luckily for Americans January is the month for TV programmes to return their screens. I’m naughty enough (and sad enough) to watch them online as the UK are about a million episodes behind, which really doesn’t help my addiction!
Shortly after this fragrance came out around a year ago, I bought myself a 30ml bottle to see what I thought of it, having liked it on first impressions in the shop. When I ran out, I had to ask for some more for Christmas, and this time I was lucky enough to get 100ml!
Why do I love this perfume so much?
- The bottle is beautiful. Its gothic, aubergine oversized flowers wrapped with chiffon & netting just on the lid gives an edgy addition to Vera Wang’s collection.
- It therefore looks amazing on my shelf.
- It’s a perfect evening scent; as a lover of sweet, fruity fragrances in the day, and a muskier, floral scent at night it ticks the right boxes –
- Pink guava and mandarin cover the top notes; I usually find these are the first to fade.
- A floral mix of tuberose and lotus blossom are in the middle notes, which I find lasts a couple of hours.
- At the base there are precious woods and a sheer musk; this is the scent that will last all night on your skin.
- The sweetness of the fruit can be overpowering at first, but giving it a few minutes or so to settle on your skin helps you smell how lovely this perfume is.
- The fact that it’s Eau de Parfum really helps it last at least 3-4 hours before needing to spray it again.
The campaign topped this fragrance off for me – a modern twist on Romeo & Juliet, and beautiful Leighton Meester who I love!
I’ve always liked Vera Wang’s fragrances; the ‘Princesses’ are young, sweet and girly, which is what I look for in a perfume. The only downside; I wish they were more long-lasting. It’s really off-putting having to re apply all of the time, as you don’t feel like you’re getting your money’s worth. Sort it out Vera!
