Viktor & Rolf New Release

I'm pretty excited to tell you about the best perfume release of 2014. Yes it's only April, and yes that's a pretty big statement, but I challenge you to find a nicer perfume than this! I was kindly sent BonBon to try out before it's release in Debenhams on the 21st, and I do have to admit that I already had high hopes for this one due to the fact that I think Flowerbomb is probably the most beautiful perfume ever made, but I'm happy to say it didn't let me down.

Let me start by saying that I absolutely love the packaging and the V&R stamp logo, although it does remind me of this perfume that I recently reviewed. The fragrance is incredibly sweet, but in a good way, the main notes I get are caramel and sweet fruity scents like orange and peach. The first time I tried this I wore it to work, and honestly wanted to go thrusting my wrist in everyones face shouting "how good do I smell?!". I decided this would probably be inappropriate. You really do need to pop into Debenhams next week to try it for yourself, I'm 99% that you won't be disappointed. One last thing that I need to add is that the wear time on this fragrance is incredible, I spritzed twice at around 7.30am and could still smell it when I was leaving work after 6pm!

Are you a big fan of Viktor & Rolf too? Will you be dying to try this?

Monu Soothing Touch Recovery Balm

Monu Professional Skincare is a brand that I've heard quite a lot about but never really got round to trying until now. I remember there being quite a hype around the Soothing Touch Recovery Balm a while back, if I recall correctly I think it was in a Glossybox once, which is probably why it was floating around lots of blogs at the same time.

Personally I wouldn't really describe the product as a balm as a balm as it's quite a lightweight cream, you literally need a small pea sized amount to do your face and neck. It's really quick to absorb, and I've definitely found my skin feeling a lot softer and smoother. I've also found that it can be pretty soothing and cooling over irritated sore skin. I'd definitely recommend this product for people with sensitive skin as it's helped to give me a healthier glow, and I know that I'll be taking this away with me on holiday to apply as a night cream to try and fight the sun and sea damage!

Have you heard of monu before? Have you tried any of their products?

The Time Is Now

Dress: French Connection*. Boots: New Look.

I think I've mentioned before that I'm a huge fan of French Connection, actually, I recently featured another of their beautiful dresses on my blog recently here, the dress was so beautiful that I actually bought two different colour ways - one for myself, and one for my mum - twinnies! I just find that they're always on trend and easy to style, the perfect fit, and the quality is always out of this world.

This new addition to my wardrobe is certainly no exception. In fact, I actually try not to wear it because I want to keep it forever so I don't want to ruin it. It's just perfect in every way imaginable; the length, the lovely material, and the very flattering cut & style. I've been loving pairing it with simple black ankle boots, for a bit of a chic-rock feel - I'm sure it will look better once I have my holiday tan - not long now *squeal*.

Are you a big fan on French Connection? What do you think of my new piece?

The Perfect Spring Summer Accessories

Today I wanted to introduce you to a lovely little brand that I've recently discovered, Keri"Aimed at beautiful, stylish women with eclectic taste and an appreciation for high quality and distinctive fashion, Keri designs and manufactures its scarves in London using a melange of Western trends and traditional Indian craft. The result is a line of scarves and other accessories that is highly original, unique and available for a range of occasions. Each product is individual, timeless and brimming with personality!". Their ranges are full of exciting bold colourful prints, that every girl should be exciting about, especially for Spring Summer, as in my opinion they're the easiest way to add a pop of colour to any outfit.
 I was kindly sent 3 beautiful cotton scarves from their Made In Britain S/S collection, (you can watch a short video of them making their scarves over on youtube here), and I can already tell you that you'll be catching them a lot over on my instagram snaps, they're just all so pretty to leave hanging around my drawers! Plus I love the way you can style them in different ways, I'm sure I haven't even scratched the surface with the 3 ways above. My favourite is probably the Purple Geometric, as it's the most "me", I think the dark floral patterns work really well against the vibrant geometric section - plus it looks good with virtually anything you could dream of wearing. All 3 of these scarves are a very modest £20 each, and when you consider all the hard work that's gone into each product then they really are a bit of a bargain!

Have you heard of Keri before? Do you love their accessories as much as me?

Organic Orange Blossom Shampoo

label.m Organic Orange Blossom Shampoo* and Conditioner*.

Since discovering label.m products just before Christmas (review here) I've been keen to try out some of their other products, especially this duo because it sounded so pretty. I do like to try out organic products, especially ones without nasties such as sulphates, it's never at the top of my list. Instead, I prefer to look for a product that, actually works, and secondly, something that smells delicious - both my boxes were ticked with this duo!

I can't even begin to describe how heavenly this scent is, its just so fresh, and fruity, and floral... basically they should of named it 'Summer In A Bottle', this will definitely be the shampoo I'll be reaching for all through Spring Summer. The formula is described as lightweight, and I'd say they nailed that, I find that it doesn't foam all that much in your hair, but you still have lovely clean feeling hair. The bonus is is that it hasn't been weighing my fine hair down like other shampoos & conditioners, instead it's been lively and bouncy.

The only teeny tiny gripe that I have with this duo is that it's hard to photograph because the bottle textures are hard to focus on, but if you're looking for something for your hair rather than a piece of art, then I'd 100% recommend these, haha. Saying that, the bottles are pretty beautiful, and they dispense perfectly for use in the shower. You can pick label.m up from Hairtrade, who are one of the best retailers of hair extensions.

Have you tried label.m before? Will you be trying this duo for Summer?
