My Signature Scent: Jo Malone Vanilla & Anise Cologne

There is nothing that I love more, beauty wise, than reading a well-written perfume review. In my opinion, not that many people can talk beautifully about scents, and it’s a pleasure to find someone who can. For example, I really enjoy The Non Blonde.

I am personally a newbie in a perfumery world, and while, I can already guess what fragrance I may like, describing it  is still a huge challenge.  Lovely, doesn’t count, right? 😉

As I’ve already mentioned, at this point, I can tell more, or less, what I would and would not like, thanks to hours spent at different perfumery shops and the lovely sails assistants, who were helpful and friendly.

Why You Should Like BritishBeautyBlogger and Bjooti

It’s been a long time since I wrote about my favourite blogs. Today I will tell you about 2 very special blogs and VERY special bloggers behind them. I am very lucky to know both bloggers “personally” .

When I started my blog  I had no idea that there were so many beauty blogs out there so I was very surprised to discover that.  And these 2 blogs were among the first that I discovered. I love them since the very first day I found them. I am talking about the fabulous BritishBeautyBlogger and Bjooti. Today I will tell you the reasons why I like these blogs and the ladies “behind them” and I hope you will like them, too.

BritishBeautyBlogger

  • I love the blog and the person behind it. Yes, I had to write that 😉
  • BBB  is written by a professional beauty journalist and I absolutely love the style of writing and the content, of course. She wrote for a lot of famous magazines and news papers!
  • J. is the first one to know almost all the beauty details.  She also is the first one to publish reviews about the new products.
  • I know that BBB a has beauty room and I saw some photos she posted on twitter. There are a lot of things in that room! I just can’t imagine how I am living without a beauty room, maybe because you can find makeup in all the rooms of my flat and in almost all my bags (and I have over 30).
  • I personally ( and I know that I am not the only one) love that BBB talks not only about beauty but she also talks about blogging itself and related issues. That is an inspiration for some and pain in the @$$ for others. I admire that she is not afraid to tell what’s on her mind!
  • If to talk about J. herself – she’s been an amazing  friend, always supported me and often cheered me up when I was in a very bad mood! <3

Bjooti

  • The other blog and blogger that I love is Bjooti and Kat.
  • Unfortunately I can’t

Advent Beauty Calendars 2018 Guide

I have to admit, that I’ve never had a posh advent beauty calendar, and every year more and more brands are coming out  with their version. And since this December will be absolutely mental for me, I’ve decided to browse them, and maybe get one to cheer myself up.

And, yes, all the good ones sell out in a matter of days, so you have to get them as soon as they launch, which is usually October. Let’s take a look.

This is the one for me. I am not sure I could love/want this  more. Out of all luxury advent calendars, this stands out the most to me. It contains so many brands that I already love, as well as the ones I still want to try. Gimme.

Luxury Offers

Besides Liberty’s, there are quite a few other incredible offers:

Space NK £250 (worth £600) from 15th October at SpaceNK. A beauty lovers dream, the first ever advent calendar from the shop. This would be my second choice, after Liberty’s.
