Ghost Girl- DARE TO BE YOU!

One of my first ever perfumes was a Ghost  perfume and I've been in love with the brand ever since. This month I was asked to feature their, fabulous, new launch- their new fragrance that dares you to be YOU!

The bottle is beautifully eye-catching with phrases such as "Love me" and "Adore me" scribbled all over the see through bottle in bright colours. 

The fragrances top notes are pear, bergamot and raspberry with tuberose, almond blossom and orange blossom as base notes. I've never been particularly good at describing scents so I tend to describe them in emotions, the emotions I feel after smelling this are nostalgia and a "free" feeling- everything associated with my teen years. I'm turning 20 this october so this is definitely a fragrances I'm going to clinging onto *cue Taylor Swift 'Never Grow Up'*

The fragrance made me remember simpler times and to have a massive throwback I decided to visit my favourite place as a teen, London Bankside. Food, amazing art and memories made for the perfect mix and I couldn't resist taking a few photos.
As this perfume has become a permanent addition to my handbag I decided to do a little "what's in my bag" post for you.
1. MAC lipstick- Dark lipsticks make all of my outfits go from day-to-night.
2. Coconut Hand Cream- An absolute holy grail for dry hands.
3. Headphones- I detest small talk, headphones have never failed to save me from them, and so, I never leave home without them.
4. Mints- For when Channing Tatum happens to hop on your tube. A girl can dream.
5. Lip balm- Especially with winter coming, this is a must.
6. Seche Vite Nailpolish- Ladders in tights + hairy legs= the worst pairing. A little trick I learnt this year was that if you put clear nailpolish over a ladder it prevents it from ripping any further- ingenious, right?!
7. Ghost Girl Fragrance*- The star of the show. I rarely keep a perfume in my bag for more than a few days, purely because I have so many but I cannot let go of this. I'm in love, must be something in the air, har-har.
8. Hairbands- For when your hair is being unruly or you've eaten one too many donuts and fancy a spontaneous Blogilates session.
9. Armani Exchange Purse- Bacon butties don't buy themselves.
10. Keys.
11. Calvin Klein Glasses- I'm as blind as a bat but they're also extremely handy for concealing how tired my eyes look.
12. Umbrella- I live in england. That is all.

If you're interested in buying the new Ghost fragrance it's available in boots stores now.
Buy 30ml for £25
Buy 50ml for £34
Buy 100ml for £46
I've also noticed that you get a free heart coin purse with your purchase, so what are you waiting for? #DareToBeYou 

GHOST fragrances have been on a bold journey of self-discovery and unveil their edgy side presenting a brand new feminist floral that is complimented by a brand new look and feel. The scent, like the campaign is bursting with attitude for the strong, daring and fun-loving girl of today.

Their most fearless fragrance to date, this intoxicating scent marks a change of direction for the brand adding a young, mischievous edge to the existing classical collection.
Ghost Girl. DARE TO BE YOU.

What's Up, Toots?

The sun brings out many things in me: sunburn, a lusting for watermelon and my addiction for online shopping.

My latest online shopping addiction is shoes, swooon, and having come across some beauties I thought it'd be cruel not to share them.

1) Doc Martens- AKA the love of my life that I will never be able to afford, but hey, a girl can dream. I love matte leather so the origianl 1460 Doc Martens would be my shoe of choice. Buy here for £111.
2) Office Parisian Lace Up Sandal- Suede is the love of my life when it comes to shoes, but red is a colour I normally steer clear of. That being said, the lace detail really drew me to the shoe and I think the colour completes the look. Buy for £75 here.
3) Office Cut-Out Boot- I tend to go for black heels during the winter and nudes during the summer, so this is a must have, the cut out detail is a lovely touch. Buy for £65 here.
4) Figtree Gladiator Sandal- After endless hours of reading The Blonde Salad, I have been converted and adore gladiator shoes. These tanned ones would look gorgeous paired with a white dress. Buy for £52 here.
5) Strappy Heel Sandals- These have a mid-heel making them stylish and suitable for everyday wear. The model wore it with jeans and white shirt and I currently have the whole outfit in my basket... Buy for £49.99 here.
6) Lace Up Ballerina- Classic flats with a stylish twist. Perfect. Buy for £29.99 here.
7) Nike Roshe Run Flyknit- I came across a huge nike store when travelling in Italy recently and fell in love with the Flyknit textured trainers. I tried them on and they literally make it feel like you're walking on air- saving up my pennies now! Buy for £94.99 here.

Maybelline Classic Volume Express WATERPROOF Mascara Swatches + Review (Before + After)

Long time no seee..... Long story short, I scheduled a lot of posts whilst travelling and NONE POSTED- sigh. Anyway, back again!

Today I'm going to be a rave review on my must-have mascara of the moment- and it's an absolute bargain. I picked up Maybelline Classic Volume Express Waterproof on whim in tesco because I loved the colour of the tube and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the actual product also.

As the name suggests the product is waterproof, but this product may as well be called bulletproof. It is a nightmare and a half to take off but so perfect at the same time.

It gives your make-up an almost hollywood look as it stays so perfect, and holds your eyelashes in the same place all day. It's also extremely black which makes it the perfect night-out pick me up.

+Holds curl
+Doesn't flake
+Very black
+Tube lasts a while

- Nightmare to take off

The product costs £4.99 which is amazing value for money, and I really recommend it if you're going on holiday or your make-up doesn't stay put on nights out. Buy here.
