Ted Baker – Fruity Floral Mint Bath & Body Collection

Ted Baker – Fruity Floral Mint Bath & Body Collection

My Ted Baker reviews are always popular, and today I have another one for you, it’s the Fruity Floral Mint Bath & Body Collection, I’ve been trying out the Body Wash* and Body Souffle*. Launched last month in April 2015 this is part of Ted Baker’s ‘Sugar Sweet’ collection, and the romantic floral print on the Body Wash tube was inspired by one of Ted’s floral fashion prints – in fact I saw some of the clothes in John Lewis at the weekend and they’re so pretty. Ted Baker Fruity Floral Mint Body Wash – this is my favourite of the two items because of its beautiful fragrance. Fruity Floral Mint has top notes of fruits and violets, and base notes of vanilla, patchouli and amber, the base notes really come through preventing the scent from becoming too floral. The Body Wash has quite a strong fragrance and it reminds me of being on holiday somewhere hot and exotic. The packaging looks so pretty too, the mint green tube with watercolour...

Pure & Light Organic – Essential Floral Toner Review

Pure & Light Organic – Essential Floral Toner Review

I hadn’t heard of Pure & Light Organic before I tried this product, so I’ve done a bit of research. The brand was set up by Agnes Donazy over a decade ago when she started to develop extreme skin sensitivity due to reactions to chemicals, so she decided to set up her own natural skincare brand. Pure & Light Organic products are 100% natural and non-toxic, and never contain unnecessary ingredients. I have been testing out Essential Floral Toner, it’s a natural liquid toner that contains orange blossom, geranium and rosemary. Essential Floral Toner is packaged in a tall, thin silver tube with a spray nozzle. I quite like the packaging it looks quite premium, and the box comes packaged inside a white branded cardboard box. Essential Floral Toner is suitable for most skin types, and it aims to promote skin moisture retention and calm and soothe the effects of irritation. I have been using it at night after cleansing my skin with Soap & Glory Peaches And Clean Cleanser,...

Zatchels – White Ditsy Floral Micro Satchel Review

Zatchels – White Ditsy Floral Micro Satchel Review

I love the current trend for satchels, I used to have a traditional brown leather-trimmed canvas one as my schoolbag when I was very young, but I adore the vibrant colours and patterns that they are available in now. Last Summer I purchased my first modern satchel from Zatchels – a UK company that promotes traditional British manufacturing, every satchel ordered is made to order in Leicester from high quality leather. You may be interested to read my previous review of my Zatchels Candy Gold Cracked Metallic Satchel. When I saw that Zatchels were having a Summer sale I was very excited, I was planning to order an 11.5 inch floral one but unfortunately they all sold out before I got a chance to order. I then noticed that there was a new limited edition smaller Micro-Satchel available (7 inches wide) in the half-price sale and I wasn’t going to let this one get away! I ordered the White Ditsy Floral Micro Satchel (it’s also available with a purple...

Perfume of the day – Elizabeth Arden Untold Eau de Parfum

Perfume of the day – Elizabeth Arden Untold Eau de Parfum

I got this miniature bottle of Elizabeth Arden’s Untold Eau de Parfum in my September Glossybox. Although it’s only a small sample I love the fact that it’s in a proper little glass bottle that was nestled inside a pretty box, not in one of those little glass phials. The design of the bottle is really pretty too, it really catches the light and would look nice on any dressing table. Elizabeth Arden describe Untold as ‘a luxurious and modern rendition of a sensuous floral composition’, for ‘the multi-faceted modern woman’. I would describe Untold as warm and gentle, it is floral without being too sweet and has a bit of mystery about it. Untold is probably not a fragrance I would have rushed out and bought if I had smelled it on someone else, but I do really like it and I will definitely be wearing it this Autumn. A full size bottle of Untold Eau de Parfum from Elizabeth Arden starts at £35 for 30ml, available from...

Paul & Joe – Floral Make-Up Bag

Paul & Joe – Floral Make-Up Bag

This Floral Make-up Bag from Paul & Joe truly is a thing of beauty! I first saw it reviewed on one of my favourite blogs, Girl With MakeUp, and I had to have one! It’s so pretty with an aqua and lilac floral fabric and the Paul & Joe logo is printed on the front. “What’s so special about it?” I hear you ask. Well, apart from being really pretty it has lots of useful pockets and compartments to help keep make-up and toiletries well organised, and the really clever part about it is that it works a little bit like a Filofax with 2 removable pouches that attach to metal rings, a bit like a ring binder. The image above clearly shows the 2 removable pouches – one is a clear mesh so you can see what is inside it, the other matches the outside of the make-up bag in the cute aqua and lilac floral fabric. Not only does this beautiful bag house the 2 removable pouches,...
