My New Staple Fragrance // J'adore Dior

Hello everyone and welcome to my first post of 2018. I honestly can't believe how quickly the last year flew by, and I hope you all had an absolutely fabulous New Year. 

So, to kick things off I thought I would talk about my favourite scent at the minute, J'adore fragrance by Dior. I'm obsessed with everything about this fragrance.

My mum very kindly got me this for Christmas, and I absolutely love it. I did some ambassador work for Ghost fragrance before Christmas in Boots, so it was the perfect opportunity to smell all the amazing perfumes and see which one I loved the most, which was this one!

I absolutely love the classic, unique bottle design. It looks so pretty in my room without being too over the top. I also love the packaging it comes in, so classy and beautiful. 

As for the scent itself, I love it so much. I got the Eau de Parfum, which is basically the more concentrate version. Eau de Toilette is basically a less concentrate version, so I prefer them for the warmer, Summer months. This smells predominantly like Jasmine and Rose for me, it also has hints of Orchid, Plum, Musk and Blackberry in it too, so it's not too floral. I love that it does have that underlying musky scent to it, it just adds to the overall fragrance and makes it smell divine! 
Perfume is definitely a luxury, and can be quite expensive. This bottle is the 30ml, which you can get here from Boots for £52.00. But because this is the Eau de Parfum, you don't need as much for it to smell gorgeous, so it does last a reasonable amount of time.

I know perfume can be expensive, and there's so many brands out there who offer affordable, but lovely alternatives. It's important that you buy fragrances from a trustworthy site or shop, as you don't know what they put in the fake ones and they could be toxic and ruin your skin. 

I hope you enjoyed this little post, let me know what your favourite fragrances are! And I hope you all have a wonderful week.

A Reflection on 2017

Hello everyone! I hope you're all having a fab day so far. This is going to be my final post of 2017, I honestly can't believe how quickly this year has flown by, and I'm so excited for 2018! 

This year has been a really quiet one for me, but a really good year overall. I learnt lots about myself, from how to cope with my anxiety to figuring out what I want to do once I finish university. I do have some things I want to achieve next year, but i'm not considering them as resolutions, more like goals that if I achieve, that will be great. 

I'd like to have more confidence in myself, and i'd like to explore more places. This year i've taken everything at a really slow pace so next year I want to actively make sure I am going out of my way to do the things I love.

This year i'm going to focus really hard on all the things I love, i'm so proud of how my blog is turning out and I enjoy it more and more every day. I love the blogging community so much, so it's a hobby I want to invest more time and effort into next year.

  I'm also planning on starting my YouTube channel in January, which i'm hoping will help me build my confidence and it's something which i've wanted to do for a long time, so i'm super excited for that little venture.

How funny is this photo of me and Martin I found of us from the Summer, i'm obsessed with how flattering this Zara dress is. 
Of cooourse I will continue to be eating all the yummy food throughout 2018, however I do want to be a little more aware about my health and fitness so I can have more confidence when taking full length photos and what not. 

So ultimately, in 2018 I want to make sure I continue to do all the things which I love, and continue to grow as a person. It's important that I try things, even if it's just once, and then I won't look back with regret thinking of what I could have done, or why I didn't try something when I had the opportunity. 
From next week my blogging schedule will change slightly, instead of posting three times a week i'll only be posting once, and that's because i'll be posting a video a week on YouTube as well. I'm not sure what days i'll be posting yet so i'll leave my Twitter link here, so you can keep up to date from there.

So, from me and mine, to you and yours, I wish you all the happiest New Year. I hope it's filled with lots of happiness, love and peace.
