Date Night In With Jacamo

4 comments



If you ask me, give me a night in over a night out any day of the week! So, recently I teamed up with Jacamo for their 'Date Night In' campaign in which they very kindly sent me a few goodies to enjoy on a relaxing night in. The campaign by Jacamo is all about helping men get off on the right foot! Both me and my boyfriend work long hours so I always enjoy it when we get an evening in to ourselves. So, what was inside the kit? Well I was definitely spoilt as I got to enjoy some lovely 'I love ...' bubble bath, as well as a box of Thornton's chocolates and two mini bottles of champers and we had a film to pop on to relax and watch. There was even a cute little book filled with quotes and chat up lines, which gave me a giggle to flick through! To find out more about the campaign, you can read the Jacamo blog!

Book Review: The Lie by C L Taylor.

3 comments

I've always been a massive reader and lately the amount of books I've read seems to be getting lesser and lesser. So, when one of my favourite authors pops up again with a new book, that's when I get straight back into reading again. I also thought it would be a good idea to start featuring books on my blog now and again as I enjoy reading others book reviews. I first read Cally Taylor's first book, 'The Accident' on the plane to Florida last year (so it brings me good memories!) - I had only meant to read a little bit to pass the time but managed to finish it all in one go! So when 'The Lie' was released I popped straight out and bought it the morning it was released.

The Lie follows Jane, who is in fact not Jane at all. The story flashes back to five years earlier, on a girls holiday which soon turned nasty, leaving Jane to take up her new identity. The story focuses a lot on toxic friendships and how quickly girls can turn on each other but it's also a lot darker than that too. Without giving too much away, the girls find themselves trapped in a cult in Naples whilst on their travels. Although it's a creepy and dark tale, it's not a spooky one so don't worry if you think you'd be scared! Jane is a likeable character and I think you'll find yourself feeling supportive towards her. As we flash back to the holiday, we also see Jane being threatened from someone who knows the truth about her - but what has she done? Why is she hiding her true identity? Well, I'll have to leave that to you to find out! It's a brilliant book and really had me gripped. I'm already looking forward to C L Taylor's next book!

Themed Wishlist #27: Tan Is The New Black.

6 comments





In my eyes, I think tan is the new black. Well, it is for me anyway! I've got a trusty tan handbag tote which I bought from New Look a while back and I'll be sticking with it for a while. Since then I've noticed a lot more tan products and accessories coming into stores for me to lust over. So, for today's wishlist - the first one I've made in weeks! - I decided to make it tan themed and picked out some pretty clothes and accessories.

Soap & Glory's Sugar Crush Body Spray.

12 comments


I've been waiting for this day for a long time - the day that Soap and Glory finally released a fragrance of Sugar Crush - yay! It sounds so daft but it literally made my day when I saw that I could finally smell of Sugar Crush all day long as it's my favourite scent. I've written about my love of Sugar Crush many times before, so I won't go into too much detail but just in case you haven't heard of the Sugar Crush, I'll explain the scent quickly. Sugar Crush is based on zesty limes and gives me the perfect pick me up through out my day. Being a body spray, it's not going to be as strong as a perfume of course, but the scent is so unique that I only need a couple of spritzes through out the day. 

There are actually two new products to choose from, including a £4 body spray which I picked up as well as a Fragrance Mist. Also, I've just remembered that S&G have even thrown a Sugar Crush Body Lotion in the mix - I am literally in heaven. There are also four other body sprays to choose from including 'Orangeasm', 'Mist You Madly', 'Original Pink' and 'Fruitigo' all retailing at just £4.00 each. As with all S&G products, they're exclusive to Boots.

Are you a fan of Sugar Crush? x

L'Oreal L'Extraordinaire Liquid Lipsticks & A Diet Coke!

6 comments

Within my time of blogging, I've been lucky enough to work with some awesome brands - but my absolutely favourite that I get to work with is Diet Coke! Today's post is all about how Diet Coke have teamed up with L'Oreal to offer Boots customers a pretty good deal on lipsticks. Diet coke brand themselves on impulsive moments and they think you can get impulsive by turning up your lipstick a notch and going bold with L'Oreal's Color Riche L'Extraordinaire liquid lipsticks. Within the range of lipsticks, you will find a total of nine different shades to choose from. The two shades I received were a gorgeous bright pink of 'Rose Symphony' and a dark blood red 'Ruby Opera'. So, what's so special about the lipsticks? Well, they aren't just any old lipstick, these are liquid lipsticks that are oil infused for a smooth and moisturizing finish. They are super easy to apply, with a pretty little feather soft wand, with good lasting power too. 

So, what's the offer all about? Well, whilst you're doing your shopping in Boots (I know you'll find a way there somehow!), you've got until 26th May to buy a 500ml bottle of Diet Coke and recieve your choice of lipstick with a whopping £5.00 off! That's a total of just £3.99 - bargain.

If I Was A Rich Girl: Alice McCall.

2 comments


Do you ever imagine just how amazing your wardrobe would be if you had an endless amount of money to spend on clothes? Well, I know I do! Today I've teamed up with Avenue 32 who are a luxury high end shopping portal selling top designers from Lulu Guinness to Alexander Wang - there's plenty to drool over. There's hundreds of items such as handbags, shoes, jewellery and gifts. I was asked to pick out a favourite designer and I chose Alice McCall after seeing her gorgeous creations (as above). I love co-cords and while it's out of my price range, that doesn't stop me from imagining just how lovely it would look. There are loads of gorgeous designs to choose from - you never know, one day we may win the lottery! To see the full Alice McCall range, it's here.

PS - Apologies for my awful blogging lately, I promise I'm on my way back.
