Zara Night Eau De Parfum

I really love Zara clothing - the quality is great, and the style of their clothes is so current, but I never thought I would end up buying perfume from there!

A few months ago, my sister came home with a perfume - my mum and I fell in love with it straight away, and we were shocked to find out that it only cost £10.

The next time I went to Zara, I picked it up, but in a bigger size (80ml) for £15. The smaller size (40ml) costs £10. You can even purchase it from the website (they have recently added the perfumes on their website)

I love the packaging - the gold stickers on the side are a little tacky but it looks very similar to the Chanel Chance perfume bottle.

The top note is Bergamot, the middle note is Peony and the base note is Vanilla. My mother detests the smell of vanilla but she seems to love this perfume.

 I think the perfume is perfect for a night out! Plus, because it's such good value for money, I feel comfortable enough to take it on holiday with me!

Have you ever tried a perfume by Zara?

Marshmallow Blends Review

 It's Autumn now and there's nothing better than treating yourself to a pamper evening. 

A few weeks ago, I decided to buy some pamper products from Marshmallow Blends, which is owned by fellow blogger Nicola. Nicola creates all the products herself and does not use nasty chemicals like parabens or SLS (which I see a lot of in Lush!). She sells body butters, soaps, shower fluffs, candles, wax tarts, body scrubs, lip butters and so on.

Here is what I purchased:

Pink Sugar Shower Fluff  (£6) - this has a consistency of the inside of a marshmallow. I simply rub it in my hand and apply it on my body when I have a shower. It smells wonderful and moisturises my skin too! The smell is exactly the same as the Pink Sugar perfume (which I used to wear a lot)

Pink Sugar Body Butter (£6) - this body butter is divine. The packaging is a lot smaller than I expected therefore I am only going to use it only once a week. I used this today and my skin feels so soft right now. It has a consistency of candle wax, but once you touch it, it melts on your skin. When I run out of this, I am going to purchase the Parma Violets body butter - yum! 

I also decided to treat myself to some wax tarts! I am slightly obsessed with wax tarts lol

3) ParaSoy Melt in Snow Fairy (£1.50) - I am burning this right now. If you are a fan of Lush' Snow Fairy Shower cream then you will love this wax tart - it smells exactly like it! I am so impressed!

4) Pink Sugar Wax melts (£3.50) - I love these, I tried one the other day and it made my room smell like Pink Sugar (perfume). There are lots of different scents you can have it in too - the next one I am going to purchase is the Vanilla and Honey one

5) Lemon Sugar owl wax melt (£2) - I haven't used this yet but I will let you know on Twitter!
What are your favourite products for a pamper evening?
