New Perfume ALERT!!!!

Hi all!

If like me you are obsessed with perfume then I'm sure your ears will have perked when reading the title above! ;-)

Anyhoo there have been soo many new releases recently and there are some real gems in here ladies, and as valentines day is fast approaching I say a little hint to the other half may be in order!

Flash by Jimmy Choo

As you can see the name certainly seems to reflect the packaging and visuals!

Lets be a tad vain and start with looks, the bottle is very pretty and unique, its a heavy glass bottle so feels luxurious and the outer packing is all glittery, and being the magpie that I am I love it!

The fragrance is more of a fresh floral and completely different to the very popular original. Its definitely not as sweet and in fact I find it more fresh and clean, I would say it's perfect for the coming Spring and Summer months.

This fragrance contains notes of passionate strawberry (why passionate I don't know), tuberose and white lily and its an eau de parfum. It comes in 3 sizes; 40ml (£35.50), 60ml (£45.50) and 100ml (£61.50), and its available in most stores now!

However if your a fan of deep musky scents then this won't be for you, its not horrible but I was left a little disappointed, after the original I thought the House of Choo would come back with a bang...turned out to be more of a gentle knock!

Just Cavalli


This is such an amazing perfume, I cannot say enough good things about it and I want it now!!

This is the follow up to the very popular Roberto Cavalli fragrance and dare I say it may be better! Now the bottle was a tad disappointing compared to the first which was more classy and sophisticated...I loved it. This one is more on the tacky side, but I understand why they made it the way they have, clearly they are appealing to the younger market. Fair enough, its a clever move.

The fragrance itself is a sexy floral, musky but not overpowering, just the right combo of floral with a depth to it which makes it young and current. They also went about it the right way getting Georgia May Jagger to be the face, she seems to be everywhere I look!

The notes in this include neroli, Tahitian tiare flowers and rosewood. It comes in 3 sizes; 30ml (£29.50), 50ml (£39.50) and 75ml (£51.50).

The only annoying downside to this is that its only an eau de toilette! Why Cavalli did you not make this a perfume!! I don't understand this...but....its still amazing and it won't put people off from buying it.  And that's a fact!

Eau de Lacoste

The lovely Amy Adams is the celeb face of this new fragrance. This is really nice feminine fragrance, not overly powerful, a typical Lacoste scent, but still I'm sure this will be quite popular.

The bottle is really cute, I thought it looked kind of like a tennis ball, and apparently that's what its supposed to be! Game, set and match for me! Not very original for Lacoste using the sports theme again, but I know they are a sports brand and I guess 'if it ain't broke why fix it'.

The notes in this are white flowers, bergamot and vanilla, so its a very clean scent. It's a great day to day fragrance for those who don't want a powerful daytime perfume.

It comes in 3 sizes; 30ml (£32.50), 50ml (£44.50) and 90ml (£59.99) and it is an eau de parfum so it will last well on the skin.

Phew! So there you have it, some new releases.

There are plenty more to come this year though so I'm sure I'll be kept bust smelling them and blogging my thoughts. And just to wet your appetite there will be a new Chloe, Gucci (mens and ladies) and Dior to come!!!!!!! I hope they live up to my expectations.  I have very high hopes.

I would love to hear your thoughts Leave me comment below!

Tangle Teezer Review..

Hi all!

So i finally bit the bullet and got a Tangle Teezer. I've been wanting one for ages but they are so expensive I've never been able to justify the price tag. However I got a gift card for Boots and thought hey why not!

I got the smaller travel friendly version which is nice and compact to go out and about with you. And I have to say I really like it!

My hair is quite long and gets knotty and tangly very easily and I absolutely hate combing it when its in this state, I end up brushing out half my hair!!! lol. This little contraption though is great, you hardly feel a thing. I do have to say though that it took a few tries to get used to using it, doesn't feel as normal as a traditional brush. But once I tried it I haven't looked back! I got my mum, who has super curly hair, to try it and it worked amazingly, she loved it. Even my brother wanted to have a go!

I wouldn't say that's its 100% perfect with no still can pull at the hair but its no where near as bad as how traditional brushes can damage the hair

I give it a thumps up and an 8/10, which is pretty good. So if you have annoying tangly hair, like it!

Let me know if you've tried it, and your thoughts
