ZARA 'ORIENTAL' EAU DU TOILETTE

November 19, 2017


I've never really thought much of fragrance collections that popular high street clothing stores decide to launch, but when a colleague of mine had suggested to check out the perfumes at Zara after she had purchased one, I did exactly that. I came across 'Oriental', a subtle and delicate fragrance with the top notes of rose and freesia, middle notes, cedar and sandalwood, and the base notes vanilla and caramel. Both myself and my colleague were discussing how expensive fragrances are, and she had insisted that she had purchased one from Zara to specifically use for work, which I had thought was such a clever idea. Instead of reaching for my very expensive Viktor & Rolf on a day to day basis, I now have a gorgeous affordable product that I can use religiously and not feel bad for using. 

AROMAWAKENING GREEN TEA & GREEN CLAY FACE MASK: REVIEW

September 24, 2017


As an aid to help me clean up my skin, remove a few impurities and mainly tackle my problem with blackheads I was on the search for a good, thorough yet sensitive clay mask. I definitely wasn't on the lookout for anything too harsh such as the likes of those peel off masks, after hearing how bad they actually are for your skin. I began to browse on Etsy as I wanted to buy a product that wasn't mainstream and also put my money toward a smaller and more independent company. I came across Aromawakening founded by Gráinne Nash, who produces all of her products by hand with natural ingredients. Nash's products are cruelty free, vegan and packed in eco recyclable packaging, so I was pretty much sold already. I had spotted the Green Tea & Green Clay Mask which had plenty of reviews from very pleased customers, so I decided to give it a go. 

AUGUST MOODBOARD

August 18, 2017


Hello, hello. I hope you're all having a prosperous Friday, and are excited for the weekend. Its raining outside and I'm dreaming of being somewhere sunny, on a beach, far far away. August is a celebration of my birthday month, and I've been finding myself re-evaluating where I would like to put my efforts in my everyday life.

I've definitely been exploring various routes in terms of..well.. everything, to be very honest. From my clothing style, to how I shop, seeking new content, new inspiration, and not being fearful of trying new things, which has been really beneficial for me lately. I feel that a lot of changes have been occurring these past few months, which is never a bad thing, it's extremely interesting to see how life is unfolding for me.

On another note, I know it's almost Autumn which I'm literally beyond excited for, but I'm obsessing over these Chloé Kerenn Shearling Slides ( pictured above ). I always seem to be getting into trends when they start to die out!
