Ring My Bella Perfume Review

Hi readers,

This is going to be the first of many reviews!
In the week I was going round the Benefit counter when I came across their 'Crescent Row' fragrance range. I'm rather picky about perfumes but in this range there seems to be a scent to suit everyone. At only £29.50 a bottle it is rather cheap for a fragrance.

I got the Ring My Bella fragrance.
The whole range comes in these cute kitschy boxes each with different stylings.
The box describes the perfume as:

'She flutters and flounces lace, satin and more. Her spirit so sexy Bella's shop you'll adore. Slip sweetly into a lush, juicy fling for a frill-seeking time "go on and ring". "

As for the smell of the fragrance itself:

Top notes: pink rose petals, soft lily, summer daisy

Middle notes: Egyptian jasmine, creamy peony

Bottom notes: white patchouli, vanilla tincture, white musk

I absolutely love this fragrance!! Its so sweet, not overpowering and lasts all day!

My only negative would be the size of the bottle, it's only 30ml so if you happened to use it every day it would run out quickly.

But that is the only negative I can think of!

Other than that I think this would be a great gift either to yourself or to friends or family. I can't wait to try out the different ones in the range!

Some of my favourite things

As I'm sat here on a Sunday evening just browsing on the internet aimlessly, half heartedly watching Desperate Housewives and stuffing my face with galaxy chocolate I decided to share with you some of my favourite things:

I'm going to start with the obvious I'm a massive fan of films and TV series. I'm the kind of person who can get through a series a day. Anything from Buffy the vampire slayer to Dawson's Creek.

A passion of mine is reading my nan used to take me to the library with her from a very young age. I used to read the point horror series when I was younger and have managed to collect practically all of them.

I'm also a massive tea addict! I think I would have withdrawal symptoms without it.

White chocolate is by far the best type of chocolate! In any shape or form an example being hot chocolate!

I'm a massive fan of food I think most of the photos on my phone are food related. I am a big fan of Chinese takeaways and could eat a whole one of those tubs to myself.

When I do have ice cream Ben and Jerry's is the only option (either Baked Alaska or Minter Wonderland).

I'm addicted to Yankee Candles at the moment especially the fresh smelling ones like baby powder. There's nothing more relaxing than sitting in with a cosy blanket a cup of tea and having a nice smelling candle lit.

I'm also addicted to eye shadows I have at least 4 palettes with the Elf cool edition being my favourite.

I'm a huge family person and feel that the holidays are always times for family no matter what!

Going out for meals and drinks is always better than clubbing!!

In the comments below share with me some of your favourite things or hobbies the more random the better!

A Month of Firsts

This month has been one with many firsts for me.
- Paying off my first holiday to the USA ✈
- Having to do a visa for the first time.
- Learning how to do new jobs at work
- Going Water Zorbing

I feel like this year is going to be one of change, one of taking more risks, experiencing new things and taking risks that I wouldn't normally.

Do you ever feel like you worry about other people too much? That you spend most of your time trying to please others than doing things that are the best for you.

This year is going to be different its going to be about new experiences, making the most of every situation - using this to grow as a person.

To start of this year of new experiences today I went water zorbing. This is where you are in a huge inflatable ball on some water - in this case it was a lake. You then have to attempt to stand and move the ball around pretty much resulting in you falling over ALOT.

It is hilarious and good fun for friends or couples to do together.

This should be the year that you go out, do something you wouldn't normally, take a risk you don't know what it may lead to.

My Bucket List of Places to See:

Deciding you want to travel isn't the hardest part. Getting there is harder.
Anyone can pick a few places to go and never have the intention of sorting out the actual details.
So where does the motivation come from? That motivation that makes you save rather than splurging or going out constantly like the rest of the people our age.

For me it's the drive to see more, do more, to know that my money is going towards more than just some drunken nights out every week.

There's stuff you can only learn by seeing things in person rather than through a screen.

My Bucket List of Places to see:
- New York
- Reykjavik Iceland (Northern Lights)
- China (great wall of China)
- Alaska
-New Orleans
- Hawaii
- Tokyo Japan

First stop on my travelling list will be California USA where I will be going on a 16 day guided tour seeing the highlights.
During this I will be keeping a diary and taking many pictures ready to blog ☺

Why I Love No 7!

I've had a revelation this week!
The No 7 vouchers are back again at boots 5 pound off skincare and 3 pound off make up.
Being the kind of person prone to having bad skin due to breakouts I have tried so many skin care products its unbelievable! Creams, exfoliators, tea tree oils all claiming to do the same thing. After getting no joy out of these I opted to just cover with foundation which of course just causes a vicious cycle and makes the problem worse.

Then I got one of these vouchers the other day and was having a mooch around the No 7 counter.
From here I ended up getting:

- No 7 Soft and Soothed Gentle Toner
- No 7 Beautiful Skin Blemish Defence Serum

I didn't really hold much hope as I haven't really heard much about serums.
I soon changed my mind within a day of use it had helped my skin no end blemishes reduced and my skin just generally felt fresher than it had done in a while.

I shall definitely be repurchasing!!! For anyone who has troublesome skin this is the skincare range you need!!!
