The Perfect Autumn/Winter Scent?

It has come to that time of year again, when you are on the hunt for a perfume more suited to the Autumn/Winter weather. I think this perfume "Intense" by Dolce & Gabbana could be my favourite A/W scent I have ever layed my nose upon. 

I first saw this perfume around about this time last year and instantly fell in love with the smell. It has such a night time mature musky scent about it, yet still so wearable in the day due to it's other fruity notes. Dolce & Gabbana describe "Intense's" different notes on their website which you can view here.

Top Notes:
Oriental floral notes ignite the senses with subtle hints of Neroli and Green Mandarin. 

The top notes yield to a rich and intriguing contrast of two noble white flowers, Orange Blossom and Tuberose, giving an intense full-bodied signature to the perfume.

Base Notes:
The warm resinous Sandal wood and the sensual musky notes that blend with the creamy addiction of the Guimauve define a powerful presence of captivating sensuality.

Oh don't D&G know how to wow you with their beautiful descriptive words?

Other than it's beautiful warm scent, the bottle is simple yet stunning. The bottle is an Autumn-y burgundy shade which is slightly opaque. It isn't the most complicated design out there but looks so elegant, along with it's elegant scent. 

I advise you all to go smell this bad boy in shops and consider it on your Christmas list. Am I the only one who has started one of those already? ha!

Girls just wana' have fun..

I love nights like these. I feel movie nights and spending time at home are very under-rated these days, especially with how out going students are, maybe I'm just not a good "student". Ha.

Last night me and a couple of my house mates decided to have a film night. Snacks and a good scary film was very much needed after having a terrible terrible day! Blah, eff you Coeliac Disease!

After watching The Conjuring, I felt very very jumpy and my friend Paolo was waiting in the toilet to scare me! I will seek my revenge ;) 

Other than being scared sh*tless, I had a lovely night in and sometimes you just need evenings like this. Time away from work and a good ole laugh.

*Sorry for the short short post, but I really wanted to shove these pictures on the blog haha! *

What things do you like to do when you are having a difficult day?

Nottingham Lush Christmas Event..

Hello guys! 

Yesterday I had the chance to go to the Christmas Lush Event in Nottingham. I am a big fan of Lush products and was dying to go, I am so glad I got the chance.

Every year, Lush bring out a line of products related to Halloween and Christmas and of course they had out some of their classics, such as "So White" and the good old "Penguin" (I love how they seem to have their own little personalities, with how different each one looks) ha! Along with the classics, they had also brought out some brand new products which got me very excited! So White has been one of my favourite bath bombs for a long time now and Lush now have the scent in shower gel form. I had to get my hands on it! Lord of Misrule and Yog-nog were some of my favourite scents from the event and the people of Lush kindly allowed me to have three products of my choice. I chose, Lord of Misrule, Northern Lights and the Yog-Nog soap. I cannot wait to use these bad boys.

Here are a few pictures from the night. I had such a brilliant time and met so many lovely bloggers. This was my first event and I was go glad I built up the courage to go. Bring on the next one!
