Lush Bath Bombs - Perfect For The Summer!




Last Friday I purchased four lush bath bombs as a treat whilst shopping in Manchester. I got Think Pink, Granny takes a dip and two of the honey bee. I have since used all four of them, I literally need a life time supply of Lush. I am a huge fan of the Lush products, I never feel let down by them. My favourite time of the year from Lush is Christmas, i can not get enough of it. I am so excited to see what they will be bringing out this year.

Seeing as its still Summer I opted for 3 fun bath bombs with lots of colour. I love the name of Granny takes a dip, for such a fun, retro loving swirly bath bomb its great. I need to make another trip to a Lush store to pick out some more, my bath is not complete without one. 

Honey Bee: In the shop I absolutely loved the smell of the Honey bee bath bomb, the name drew me to it straight away. It makes your bath water a yellow colour which is what you expect due to it looking like a tennis ball. It fizzes out fast but leaves your skin instantly soft and the whole bath room smells glorious. Honey, Aloe Vera and Rhassoul mud helping to keep your skin smooth and retain moisture. It did leaves a big yellow mark around my bath but that washed off easy enough. My legs became bright red towards the end and irritated which was weird but I am hoping that was due to the hot weather but overall a great smelling bath bomb.

Think Pink: This one is more of a relaxing bath bomb and a great simple one to pop into the bath. I love the sweet vanilla smell to it, amazing summer night smell to it. I love the cute flowers on the top of the bath bomb, this is why I chose it. I love that you are surrounded by rice paper heart shaped confetti as it melts away in the bath. This one is a fun, girly bath bomb that would make a perfect gift. Next time i go in I must pick one up for my mom she would love this one. The lavender scent in the bath bomb helps to relax after a long day, overall a great lush bath product that I would pick up again and again.

Granny takes A Dip: This has to be my all time favourite Lush bath bomb ever. This is a big statement because I have purchased many in the past, its absolutely beautiful. What drew me to it was the funky colours, instantly knew it would make a great bath product with all the amazing colours. When you pop it into your bath its a slow fizzer which is perfect. The colours it produces and patterns in the water makes you want to relax and watch it in all its glory. To me it looks like its creating a big beautiful colourful sunflower and bursting with colour all around the bath. Ginger, pepper, lemon and a citrus smell to it makes you think of winter but to me this smelt great. Perfect for a summer night. I'm not a big fan of spicy smells when it comes to bath products but with the lemon added into this one it gives of a fresh scent. When its all fizzed out it leaves the bath a plum colour, this is a fun bath bomb. I want a life time supply of this baby, its great. I felt relaxed, rejuvenated and my skin was super soft, overall an amazing bath bomb!


Have you tried any of these bath bombs?

My Top Body Scrub products



The Body Shop: I am a big fan of shopping in the Body Shop, the products smell heavenly and you know you will enjoying using them. They smell almost edible, the Raspberry one in this collection looks like jam. It helps to remove dead skin cells and creates a softer, smoother finish. I love to use this every time I bath or shower. It won't last very long due to me wanting to over use it  and then I will have to re purchase it, it honestly is incredible. It feels gentle on the skin but it does the job, its perfect to use just before you apply your fake tan to create a smooth base to work on. My tan came out smoother and looking very natural with the help of this beauty of a product. I love the texture of this one it is gentle on the skin yet works wonders, it feels like you are rubbing jam onto your skin. 

The second body scrub from the Body Shop smells gorgeous, its the most gentle one too. I love how it smells and how soft it feels on the skin, almost like you are using a body cream in the bath. I love the apricot smell and it feels nourishing on the skin. Both work wonders yet are so different, this is what I told myself when buying two at the same time but it turns out its true. 

Soap & Glory: My go to pamper night brand, they never let me down when it comes to there products. My first body scrub I purchased whilst running my blog and it has had a firm place in my beauty draw. I love this product, from the smell to the quality everything is perfect with it. If you are not sure on what drug store body scrub to buy I highly recommend this one, I always use it before applying my fake tan. It leaves my skin feeling clean, exfoliated and a great base for my tan. I find that my tan sits well on my skin and looks a lot more even after using this in the bath. This is truly my go to pamper night product, I have reached for this product for many years.

& Other Stories: This luscious scent leaves the skin super polished and smelling perfect. I purchased this when I was in London for the weekend as a treat, it was in the sale too which is a bonus. This product certainly brought me back to life after a long train home, the smell left my skin feeling great and smelling great. How to use this product, all you have to do is smooth over damp skin, rub it in and wash off. 

Delicate jasmine petals and lightly sprinkle brown sugar. I love how in the light this product sparkles, its a great looking product. You can smell the twist of lime juice in the scent which brings it to life, perfect for the summer months to get the perfect base to apply fake tan. I love to use this product on nights that I want to pamper myself, its one of those products you want to keep forever. Its a great little addiction to my body scrub collection, I have so many that I love to use. This one is one of the best body scrubs I have ever used, I may need to go online to purchase more. I love the sugar texture to this one, it really works on the skin, lathering up to a brown foam that feels nourishing. I think this product is a real winner when it comes to body scrubs.

I have some amazing news to share with you. I am up for best Established beauty blog in the Cosmopolitan awards so if you would like to vote for KEMPLES head over to the Cosmopolitan website.  I really appreciate all the support and it is something that makes me tear up with happiness every time I think about it. <3

My Relationship with Beauty- From The age of 15

<3

Recently I have noticed that I take time to browse the beauty counters rather than jump right in to buy everything. We all would love to be able to try all the latest must have beauty products but with a budget that's not realistic enough. I wanted to share with you how my relationship with beauty has changed from the age of 15. 

I have always been into magazines, beauty and talking to my friends about girly stuff at sleep overs. We used to paint our nails and watch super girly films whilst reading the latest edition of Seventeen. I grew up in South Africa so it took me a while to adjust to high school in England, all of a sudden I was under pressure to have the latest name brand item and to wear my hair in a certain way. I know how tough school can be but we all should embrace what we love, it took me years to get to the point to say this to myself. I think my turning point was college I finally could figure out what it was I loved and not what was popular at the time. 

Make up: I know that my relationship with make up has changed drastically. when I was in College I used to work part time and when I got my wages at the end of the week it would all go on clothes and make up. This went on for years, I ended up with so many beauty items that would sit in my draw and never see day light. Now I work out what I need first of all and what items would benefit me, I want to be able to use the items up. There are a few items I keep safe and only use for special events but these are products I have saved up to purchase. I browse the beauty counters now and look at everything, I make sure that when I try the latest product that it suits me or something that I know I would use. I always blog about items I truly love and items that I buy that I know I would use. I still buy items I think dam that was a waste but its very rare this happens. I go into Boots knowing the latest products and come out with enough to know I haven't over done it. I wish I could just go for it and create an impressive amount of beauty products but what I have I use up and treasure. I find that I truly enjoy every product I buy now and appreciate every use. Any one else feel the same about beauty products?

Hair Care: I must admit I used to buy all sorts of hair care products when I was around 18. Nothing that I could set a routine with. I never thought this would benefit my coloured hair or this will help for dry hair. I would pick anything that sounded nice to try that week, I must admit my hair care is now set to what my hair needs. I dye my hair so I make sure I have keratin in my shampoo, since knowing more about what my hair needs it helps to keep it in top condition. I am picky when it comes to buying hair products now, I go for things that will benefit a routine. I love to try out new hair care products and I never stay with the same, its fun to change it around sometimes. Recently though there have been a couple brands that I am really enjoying and have repurchased the same again.

I think with my make up I want it to benefit my skin tone, my hair colour and all this comes in to consideration. I have learnt how certain colours suit me and what I truly love. I find that even though beauty has always been a huge passion for me I truly enjoy it more now. I am so pleased I have my blog to share the products I love with you. It helps me to truly analyse how I feel about each product and to see how much it benefits me buying it. I adore trying out new products and being more adventurous with it. I keep all my products safe in draws and I take care in when I use them and how much I use, when I truly love a product I use it on pamper nights. I'm not sure if anyone else feels the same about beauty but please let me know if you do. 

I am obsessed with beauty products but I think in a more fun, healthy way now. I used to spend money on anything and everything in Boots without truly knowing what was needed and what would suit me. I think a big splurge on beauty products is a must but not all the time, its more special now when I can go in and buy a couple more items to add to my collection. 

I get excited about creating content on my blog and I want it to benefit me and you. I want to show you products I truly love and items I would buy. beauty is a huge part of my life and always has been but I find I have a great balance about it now. I can be as creative as I possibly can with my blog too which is a huge bonus when it comes to a topic I adore.

I think finding out what truly suits you as a person is the fun part about beauty, its not all about buying every single new release. You can create content with things you own and don't feel pressured to keep spending. I always have in mind the quality of the items rather than the quantity of items, I don't want products in my draws that I will never use. I think if you find a couple brands you truly trust, stick with them and every now and then if you see something that is new and will help you go for it. Beauty is about having fun, never feel like every new release will suit you.

When there is a new hyped up product over on all the blogs I try note down what I think will benefit me with the product. Usually when I try the product I find that the reviews truly helped, it takes a few minutes, week or so to step back and make a list of items that can suit you. building up a beauty collection that suits you, it makes it fun too.

With my make up whats not changed is the passion and my winged eye liner!!

Let me know your stories on how you think beauty has changed for you?

For this post I was inspiration by the lovely Jenny Purr!

Products My Boyfriend Steals...

But why not these products are great right?

Boys say they are not fussed about beauty products or so I hear from my boyfriend and male friends. Recently I have noticed that he has been reaching for more and more of my products and asking me if he can use my dry shampoo before heading out to work. He is obsessed with dry shampoo and thinks that it is a miracle product, hes not clued up on any beauty products when he is forced to go into Boots with me. Recently as he knows my blog means a lot to me he has been getting more involved in what I can blog about and asking about the products I have been talking about. 

Lush is another product that I know he loves, he still likes to use the ones such as Honey Bee and not the over pink ones. This one is a recent purchase and he loves it, luckily I bought two of them. I know a few boyfriends who love to use the Lush bath bombs and I don't blame them, I am a huge fan myself.

Have you noticed your shampoo going down faster than you expected? You might want to check with your boyfriend to see if he is loving it too. I think its all about how it smells and why not use them? John Frieda recently sent me a couple hair products and I told my boyfriend how amazing they were and smelt great. This shampoo leaves your hair smelling super fresh and super clean. 

I purchased Toni & Guy sea salt spray last year, it was buy one get one free offer too. I wasnt able to use the first one because my boyfriend loved using it to style his hair. yet another miracle product that he loves, I even had to purchase it again just so that he could use it. I don't blame him for wanting to use sea salt on his hair, it leaves his hair soft and he says gives it more texture which is what we use it for right? Dry shampoo and sea salt spray is two products he admits he loves and I don't mind at all until I go to use it and its empty. He promises to purchase it again for me but I think its because he secretly wants it back on my shelf to use again.

The Hawaiian tropic sun tan lotion he loves the smell, its just like holiday which I totally agree with him. He says it one of the nicest sun protection products ever and he is stubborn when it comes to using sun tan lotion. 

Soap and glory I tend to find a lot of my family steal, if I leave this in the bathroom it gets used on a daily basis. I am a huge fan of Soap and Glory and I think its the amazing smell that draws him to wanting to use it. 

Another product I notice he doesn't mind using is the Simple range, I think he just sees it there and thinks yep that will do the job. Its gentle on the skin too which is why I use it and it has a slight smell to it not over girly. 

There is nothing wrong with boys using these products right? 
What products do your boyfriends steal, I would love to hear from you!

Superdrug, Lush and Mac Haul







Yesterday myself and my boyfriend decided to go to the Trafford Centre in Manchester. He works long hours due to being a chef and we are limited to days we can do something lovely. I drove to the Trafford Centre which is amazing for me as I hate the motorway but I did it without any trouble, I think that's because I am more comfortable driving in my new car. My last one was super hard to drive and scared me from the motor way.  

We started the day with lunch at Nandos, I ordered the Beanie burger which was amazing. It was just a nice day mostly window shopping and spending time together. I did manage to buy a few things and Rob got me such a lovely gift too. He was kind enough to buy me the Mac Studio Sculpt foundation as a treat, this is the first Mac purchase made for me whilst going into Mac. The only other product I have from mac is Ruby Woo which I adore. Loulabeth got me it when she went away on holiday. I think I will try purchase more Mac products, I want to be able to try more. I think my Mac obsession has started...

I popped into Lush and purchased four bath bombs, I got two of the honey bee. I wanted to be able to come home and use a bath bomb, all the beauty bloggers out there know how it feels when you want to use the product but you haven't photographed it yet right?
I chose Honey Bee, Think Pink and Granny takes a dip. I am so excited to try Granny takes a dip because look at all the beautiful colours on it. Imagine what your bath is going to look like, I'm going to use this one tonight. I will do full reviews on the Lush bath bombs if you would like to see that next week? 

I am a huge fan of Lush products, where I live has no Lush store which is a shame. So when I go near one I go mad and purchase four or five at a time. I honestly could buy them all but my bank balance would hate me. 

I went into Superdrug and since Tanya Burr released her cosmetic line I have been curious about trying the products. I have left it a while to see how it went and I think the reviews and tweets about the products have all been positive so I decided to try one myself. I went for Picnic in the park, this is one she wears a lot in her videos. I will do a make up look for you using this lip gloss. I am so excited to try it out, I was in need of a cute pink shade and this one I think will do the job well.

I noticed that Essie was 3 for 2 at SuperDrug which made it tempting to buy some. I got Blanc, Mint Candy Apple and cute as a button. I don't want to admit this but these are my first ever Essie purchase, I have no idea why it took me this long to buy some. I am so excited to have a Lush bath and pamper night tonight, I think I will go for Cute as a button first. I will do a full review on the Essie polished I purchased soon. 

I hope you like this post and if you would like me to do more in the future let me know!
I will do full reviews on all the products mentioned above so keep an eye out for them!

New to my hair routine- Lee Stafford.




Lately I have been struggling to find the right products to work on my hair. I have been having treatments to lighten my hair from black to my natural hair colour which is mousy blonde. I managed to get all the black out my hair but that came with damaging it a little, I then went on to even out the colour with a semi permanent hair colour. All this caused my hair to look weak and dry, I needed something that would boost it back to life.

I was asked if I would like to try these Lee Stafford products, I know I am a fan of the products from using them last year. What took my interest was the argan oil in the products, this instantly made me hope for gorgeous new hair that won't look dull. After using all these products this month I can confirm they are gorgeous. They work wonders on my hair and I can tell you my hair was in a state. I went to the hairdressers for a cut and dye to help my hair seem more glossy but with the help of the argan oil I can truly say I have seen a huge difference. 

I love lee Stafford, his products look amazing and smell super expensive. They are a lot more expensive than your usual hair products in Boots but I think the treatment you get from them is a different level. It feels great, the quality shows on your hair, the quality of the products shine through. Overall a great product that works wonders on hair that has been through a lot. 

The products are designed to nourish and enrich your hair leaving you with smooth, silky and healthy hair. After trying them myself I can confirm this, my hair felt smooth, soft and well looked after. Even after one use I was so pleased with the results, I enjoy using these products before going out. After I used my new GHD hairdryer I felt like a new woman, my hair was silky and looked super glossy. Just the results I was looking for, I hate faffing over my hair but these products do a great job to help it look great even after just using the hairdryer.

Argan oil contains ingredients that are associated with repairing hair, resulting in luxurious healthy hair. The Berber women of Morocco have used argan oil as part of their daily beauty regime for hundreds of years and consider it to have many benefits which include preventing moisture loss in the deserts. 

See my GHD post to see the results and let me know what your thoughts are! LINK

Topshop Festival Wish List!

One / Two / Three / Four / Five / Six
I wish I was attending a festival this year not only for the great music but also being able to wear beautiful summer dresses and a floral crown. Not that you need any excuse to wear this, I love summer dresses. I have so many in my wardrobe that I just love, usually they all have a floral print to them. This dress I was instantly draw to because of the shape and lovely girly lace. I love how it doesn't have a huge amount of bright colour in it but its just super girly. 

I would love to pair this dress with some cute sandals just like these pretty jeweled ones. I assume wellies might be a must but I wanted to chose some cute shoes to go with my wishlist. I love the colour of them, to go with this dress it would be perfect. The jewels will pick up on the sunshine.

Every festival outfit needs a flower crown, its a must for me. I think it makes your hair look pretty. If you have a lot to carry such as cameras and you want to keep it all safe in one bag that won't hurt your shoulders, go for a backpack. I love this one its simple yet gorgeous, I would need to carry a few things and I have having to carry a big handbag when its super sunny. You will want to be able to dance the day away, so this would be perfect.

Lately I have been on the hunt for a new Iphone case, this one is perfect. I love the pineapple print that I have seen on the internet with clothing. I am obsessed with having a new Iphone case, so many cute ones. I love having a pair of sunglasses with me in my handbag in the Summer, these ones are super cute. The colour of these would compliment the summery look to this outfit. 

Would you wear this to a festival?

GHD Aura










For years I have been a big fan of GHD, in school it was all the craze to have the latest GHD hair straighteners. I unfortunately wasn't able to buy my own and I remember moving to England not knowing what a straightener was. Its true I had no clue, in South Africa I had to wear my hair up at all times for school. When I moved to England I suddenly had the freedom to wear my hair down, the downside to this was I had no idea how to style it.  The first time I went to a hairdressers in England I had my hair cut and styled with GHDs, It changed my life. My hair was suddenly an on trend style and had a perfect shine to it, I even went back to the same hairdressers for my prom and had amazing curls put into my hair using GHDs.

This hairdryer has given me the confidence to style my hair again, I have been leaving it to dry on its own for years now. I have never been more excited to try out a hairdryer in my life, for the first use I fell in love. The shine and ease of using this hairdryer was amazing, I have never been a fan of faffing around with my hair. This hairdryer helps to perfect drying my hair, giving the precision to work on separate pieces of the hair without clips. No one has eyes in the back of their head but using this hairdryer I was able to dry every section of my hair perfectly straight. I am going to test it out more by trying to get my hair a little more voluminous. I am loving using this, it makes my everyday hair feel shiny and cared for. Usually I wash it and leave it to dry but without using GHD Aura it doesn't give it the shine it craves, so from now on I want to use this beautiful hairdryer. 

I recently got my hair dyed light brown and cut, I was so excited to try the hairdryer out on my new hair. I gave my hair a quick blast with the hairdryer before attaching the nozzle to it, I then dried my hair with a brush. It was so easy to style my hair, the hairdryer itself is very light to hold up. It looks beautiful, I doubt I will keep it anywhere but the box after each use because its so beautiful. I loved how smooth my hair felt after using it, almost like having your own personal hair dresser. Nothing better than the feeling of freshly done hair at the hairdressers, this is how mine felt after doing it myself. I feel like a changed person, this is an amazing tool for any lady!

I love that the hairdryer has a super long lead, no more struggling to dry my hair trying to reach my mirror and no more arm cramps. The Aura nozzle creates a ring of cold air around it, no more burning your scalp, I love that there is no chance of it overheating. 

I have been enjoying using the GHD Aura, I feel like it has changed my outlook on my own hair. What do you think?

Guest Post - Hair care by Girl Talk With Laura!



Well a big hellooooo to all of my wonderful friend KEMPLES  and her lovely followers! I've hijacked her blog for the day.

You may or may not know me or my blog 'Girl Talk With Laura' but this is why i am here.. to meet you all and to introduce myself and for you to get to know me a little through this post. If you like it then you can head over to my blog and follow me there to read more and keep up to date with me. I am fairly new to this blogging world so i appreciate all the support. 
My blog is all about fashion and beauty and basically the things you chat to the lasses with, apart from the boy talk! 

Today's post is all about hair care! I don't know about you but my hair is seriously feeling the effects of these holiday conditions I've put it through lately. Sun, Sea and bad hair care products (check out my last 'Disappointing Products Post') have took its toll on my hair and you can tell. Since i bleach my hair and that certainly doesn't help either! So before my next appointment at the hairdressers to apply yet more bleach to my roots i need to make sure i can try and save my hair before it dies a slow and painful death!

So to start with i had a well needed trip to Superdrug to buy the supplies, Superdrug is my go to high street shop for all beauty products because of their prices and range. You can always rely on them to have an offer on! Off I went and found myself reaching for the Tresemme range as I've had a hair mask from them before and it was rather good! The brand I was stepping away from was Aussie, and if you want to know why then you really should read my 'Disappointing Products' post. 

I found the Tresemme Expert Collection jumping out at me because mostly it was on special offer but also because I've never tried it and i am a sucker for new things. Another thing about it was the size of the shampoo bottle, this is slighly embarrassing but i do have really small hands and the shampoo and conditioner bottles for their normal range are just to big for me to get a hold of and squeeze out the product! Don't even laugh guys. Anyway, this one is a little smaller so even i can cope with it! I'm pretty sure it was 2 for £7 which always sucks me in and there was not much left so i figured out that it was pretty popular. Since there was much left i ended up getting the Tresemme Expert Collection Keratin Smooth Shampoo and the Deep Treatment Masque.

I then spotted the Pantene Dry Oil which was a bargain price of £3.23 or something silly like that! But i'm recently away this is back to full price now which is £6.99 so aren't I glad i grabbed it whilst i could! I uploaded a picture of this to my Instagram along with my other buys and did actually have a comment saying she is sick of blogger promoting bad products because all this does is coat the hair in a plastic and suffocates it. Which yeah could be true. But i am no expert, all i am is a girl in a need of a fix that will help my hair and i am trying new products to see if they work. At this point, they could or could not work for me and i do believe every person is different. 

But luckily for me these products DID work! My hair no longer feels like its about to snap and it doesn't have those random horrible dry curly bits on the end that are the bane of my life. I feel the shampoo and masque are amazing at calming my hair down and making it smooth and soft. When my hair is still damp i will apply 3 squirts of the dry oil onto the ends and let it dry naturally. 
The Pantene Dry Oil smells amazing and if your hair smells nice then that just generally makes you feel better as when your hair wafts in the wind its something that brings out the smell and you are reminded how good it is. Also, if your hair smells nice then it does attract the boys! Boys love a good smelling head of hair. 

These have brought my hair back to life and i feel much better about it rather than thinking i was going to have to chop it all off!

Hope this helps your hair problems and it was lovely to meet all of you.

Blogosphere Magazine Issue 4 - Louis Cole







You might be aware from day one of this magazine being released I have been a fan, from issue one I was hooked. Issue one had Essie Button on the cover which caught my eye at first but I also knew it would be great to have a magazine showcasing so many amazing bloggers. I love that there is a huge variety of bloggers in this magazine, it doesn't focus on one style. We all have something to offer to the blog world and so does this magazine, every issue is spot on. I love to buy it because it helps me feel inspired by so many amazing bloggers and for me there is nothing else like it. 

Issue three was also one of my favourites due to Fleur being on the cover, she is one my all time favourite bloggers as well as Youtuber. Every page has something new to offer you and I love the layout of the magazine. Each style of blog such as fashion, beauty and lifestyle have there own section. It flows very well throughout the magazine, I love the advice sections and interviews. This issue has Louis Cole on the cover well known as Fun For Louis. I sit down to read this as soon as it comes through my door, I read from page to page. I like to keep them safe on my book shelf, its great to be able to look back at them and find inspiration. I love it when a blog inspires you, you know that is a great thing. 

This issue I loved the story on Rise of the teen blogger, its great to see blogs inspiring young people to write. I wish I started my blog way back when I was 16, its become a massive part of my life and my true passion. We all have something to offer to the blog world, there is never too many blogs. I would highly recommend you start one if that's what you want to do. Go for it and see how it goes, if it is your passion it will shine through on your blog. we all can inspire each other and help each other. 

You can get Blogosphere magazine in print form or digital, the e book is £3 and the print is 4. I love to buy the magazine so that I can keep it on my shelf but sometimes I am tempted to buy it on my Ipad so that I know I have it with me when I travel on the train. Delivery is super fast once it has been announced that the new issue is available which is great because once I have purchased the magazine I want to read it as soon as I can. 

Overall great advice, you find some amazing blogs through it and it inspires you. What more could you want in a magazine? I think they deserve all the success in the world, they work super hard on every issue!

Kim Kardashian- Pure Honey!





A scent that draws you in, the sweet smell of honey. When it comes to perfumes I am a huge fan of sweet smelling scents. This one hits the nail on the head, it smells incredible, its not over sweet but as the day goes by you notice the honey smell sweeter. What I adore about this bottle is that it looks good on the dressing table, it stands out and the cute bee on the front draws you in. Overall I think its a great perfume that looks good and smells amazing, as soon as I apply it I cannot stop smelling it. As the day goes by it starts to smell sweeter than when you first apply it which I like. There is nothing worse than a perfume smelling for the first ten minutes then having to reapply again and again. I love that this one sits on the skin well. 

I prefer the packaging without her face on it because it represents the honey for me more. I love the colour of the liquid and the colours used on the packaging. The scent comes from raw wild honey and voluptuous floral, she wanted to make a perfume as golden and radiant as possible. This product comes off as radiant due to the colours and the golden packaging draws you in. I love the cute bee on the front of the bottle, for me that was needed to add something to the bottle. The bottle is a good shape and stands out, if you love shiny things like me then this might be for you too. 

This is her fifth perfume and the first one for me to own, I love to try out new perfumes as I usually stick to the ones I know I love but I am so pleased I was able to try this one. Its completely different to anything I would pick but in a great way, I am loving using it and people have complimented it. I have this standing on my make up shelf and it looks stunning, the light picks up on it well too. 

I love that it is a delicate smell, I find harsh perfumes you are limited to wearing it at night but with this one I think its flexible. There are notes of red rose, Freesia, vanilla, musk and honey, combined making a great product that I am so pleased to have been able to try. I think that overall this is a great perfume, even for a gift because it looks gorgeous. What do you think of me using a white background instead of my bedding, let me know below your thoughts. 

Have you tried this perfume?
