John Lewis Secret Santa Reveal!

Hi Loveys!
 
As some of you may already know I was lucky to be asked to take part in the John Lewis Secret Santa. I chose a gift for a blogger and then received mine and what a beaut it is! My package arrived and I was so excited that I tore open the packaging before I could even take a deep breath. I found a green box and the Ted Baker Logo ooooh what was inside......

I received a pretty patent pink and mint green Ted Baker purse with a clear gem clasp. The purse is 100% leather and is such a cutie! It has a good variety of compartments which every woman needs for all those pennies, notes (well I wish) and cards! It is a good size so it can fit a clutch bag without it bulging out! It has a handy zip and a fabulous gem clasp which adds a touch of glamour. The think that strikes me about this purse is the gorgeous colour, its a muted light dusky pink with a light mint green, the colours remind me of ice cream all fluffy and cute!

When I opened the purse I noticed a quote in pretty italic writing
 
"Ted says the more you give the more you get"
 
I love this quote, it means I will not feel so guilty when I am at the till spending money! I now have a good excuse!

Review: NSPA Bloom Eau De Toilette

NSPA, Review, Fragrance, Perfume, Pretty, Pink, Floral, Flowers, Rose, SPAHello Loveys,
 
 
Todays post is a review on the new fragrances by *NSPA. NSPA is a brand I am a fan of, they are "UKs No.1 Day Spa".
 
NSPA, Review, Fragrance, Perfume, Pretty, Pink, Floral, Flowers, Rose, SPAThe fragrance featured is Bloom, which states it is a "delicate scent which has its own story reminiscent of blissful bouquets, fresh floras and pretty petals" The packaging is very pretty with a picture of a bouquet of pink flowers on the front with the shade pink being followed throughout. The bottle is a simple yet elegant style, a clear bottle with a silver top and a white floral design. I always prefer it when you can see the perfume in the bottle, I feel it gives it an expensive feel. The fragrance is a sweet floral fragrance, it has "feminine tones" which I agree with, definitely a scent for the spring/summer days when you are walking in a field of flowers whilst wearing a pretty floaty dress.
 
 
NSPA, Review, Fragrance, Perfume, Pretty, Pink, Floral, Flowers, Rose, SPAThe scent has Rose, Jasmine, and Tuberose with an essential oil of Vetiver. I would say this is a perfect girley scent, it lasts well but have it in your handbag for a spritz here and there. Some floral scents can remind some people of old grannies, but this does not I can assure you, if so then that is one cool granny! 
 
 

        Have you tried any of the scents?

Lauren Conrad Star Style

Hello Loveys!
 
Lauren Conrad, Pretty, Girl, The Hills, Fashion, Beauty, Famous, Celebrity, Style, Star
Here is another Star Style post, think I will do these regularly, what do you think?
 
Lauren Conrad was first seen on the American series The Hills. Lauren instantly grabbed the audience with her simple yet striking style, elegant makeup teamed with her glowing skin made the girls look in awe! Lauren has showed her girly side with floaty skirts and floral patterns and then her rock chic look with leather, crushed velvet and red bold lips. Lauren has proved she is a style icon and has delved into the world of fashion and beauty with no hesitation, most girls seem to own her book and leap with excitement when she is seen on screen.
 



What I love about Lauren is her effortless style, combining simple makeup with chic dresses, or her bold lips teamed with a statement necklace or high heels. She really never seems to get it wrong, in my eyes anyway. I love the red jacket, it shows she means business and with leather trousers shows a sexy side.
 
Lauren will always be a style icon in my eyes, what do you think?

John Lewis Secret Santa!


Christmas, John Lewis, secret, Santa, father christmas, Present, Gift, Red,
 
*Who loves Secret Santa? Me!!
 
I am very lucky to announce that I am taking part in the John Lewis Secret Santa! This campaign reflects the John Lewis advert where they celebrate the anticipation of Christmas and the joy of giving gifts, which is what a Secret Santa is all about.

The giving part is always what excites me more at Christmas, I already have pretty much completed my Christmas shopping, insane I know! But I literally can not wait, especially with a child it brings back the magic of Father Christmas. I remember looking into my stocking with excitement and then running downstairs to see what was under the tree, I honestly could not wait, then as I got older I would be so excited to see how my family would react when they ripped open the wrapping paper to reveal a gift I had bought them, seeing an expression of happiness and surprise would make my day so to take part in a Secret Santa will be fantastic, yes I know I wont see their facial expression but hopefully they will blog about it so I can read how they feel!

Have you taken part in a Secret Santa? This isn't my first and hopefully not my last!

A xx
 


Christmas, John Lewis, secret, Santa, father christmas, Present, Gift, Red,
