Scented Sachets for Your Clothes and Fragrance for Your Lingerie

I have been on a mission “Spring Cleaning” lately.

It’s an amazing feeling when you get rid of the things that you don’t wear anymore. The main thing is to be very strict with yourself – if  you haven’t worn a particular item for months, or even years, most likely you won’t wear it any time soon. So don’t even start the “what if”…

Guerlain Eau De Lingerie, new, LE, £60 for 125 ml. This is a lingerie spray withaphrodisiac properties with the notes of: iris, rose, white musk, vanilla, sandalwood and ambrette.

Plus when you give away of the things you don’t wear you feel motivated (and can justify) for the new purchases. I have been doing that, as well! And it it very refreshing. In fact, I have bought two new dresses (see one here) this month already. Although I don’t really wear dresses that often, but I felt like it was time for a change.

SS19 Foundations: Chanel, Hourglass, Dior, Guerlain, Estee Lauder

There are always new foundations out for Spring, and SS19 is not an exception,  there are at least 10 new launches I can think of, on top of my head. So I’ve decided to choose a few different ones just to give you an idea of what is coming out. All foundations are available in many different colours, except Chanel.

I haven’t tried any of these  so I am providing the official descriptions.

Guerlain L’ESSENTIEL NATURAL GLOW FOUNDATION 16H WEAR

“Naturalness & make-up performance come together for the first time at Guerlain. A foundation made with 97% naturally-derived ingredients with a natural glow finish that lasts for 16 hours. The complexion is perfect, luminous and fresh. The comfortable texture becomes one with the skin, making it ideal for buildable coverage (light to medium)”

Not sure what I think of the quirky bottle but it definitely stands out, and the foundation sounds like something I personally would love.
