Did ya' miss me?

I have no idea if any of you noticed but I have been lucky enough to holiday in a fashion-ridden country - ITALY! ...And have therefore been unable to post for a zillion years. *sad face...

So while my next couple posts aren't anything to do with my holiday, after that I shall update you on one of the wonders of the fashion world!

But for now,
Ciao! x

If-I-Could-I-Would - Fragrance!

Perfume isn't for everybody, and I don't wear it myself, but walking into a store and having a little spritz is fun! It also isn't the cheapest thing on earth, but does tend to last a long time once you buy it -  better for birthdays, I think!

A much shorter list than shoes, but here goes!

Yves Saint Laurent - elle

Something about this scent attracted
me - I don't know what, I'm not a YSL
regular. But it's floral, individual, and
certainly something I would like to
smell more of...
The Perfume Shop -50 ml - £55.50

DKNY - Be Delicious in Apple

There is something about the smell of apples
that I really love - and Donna Karan really
captured it well. (plus, apples make you happy!)
The Perfume Shop - 50 ml - £47.50

Big Pony RL Pink 1.7oz. (50ml) - Big Pony Fragrance - Ralph Lauren UK

Ralph Lauren - The Big Pony
Collection For Women

You might have figured out by now
that I'm a sucker for floral and fruity.
But No.2 seems to have combined that
in an irresistible way!
Ralph Lauren - 50 ml - £35

Zara Girl

So I was playing around with
the perfumes by the checkout
and wasn't expecting much -
but this smells good!
Zara - £4.99

Coach Poppy

I was treated to a sample of this
and found it delightful to sniff at.
One of the best things about a perfume
is its bottle, and this is certainly
a centrepiece for your dresser!
Debenhams - 50 ml - £48

Tell me your favourite scents!

School's out, sales are on, and everybody is getting ready for summer and the holidays that lie ahead!

So many of you are going away to the beach to catch the rays that britain isnt receiving, some are exerting yourselves on sporting holidays, and many are on staycations - relaxing in your nearest centerparc's and the like.

But what to wear?

How to pack?


Don't worry -I am here to help solve your clothing needs!

For those of you sunning on foreign beaches, bikinis, shorts and mini maxi's are required - the best way to show off your tan lines! But remember to stay safe in the sun, UVA and UVB rays are the highest cause of skin cancer - so suncream and self-tan are another must-have.
