SISJ BEAUTY – FANCY BITS ‘N’ BOBS FOR YOUR FACE & BODY >
Hello, hi, how are you?! It’s my first day back blogging… Well, about the other things in life that also bring me joy – like BA-EAUUUUUTY stuff! This morning we had a #mammaandmiamornin and it was so lovely! We did babyccinos, cupcakes, swings, slides, tunnels and then a mini-meltdown in Mecca (yup, mummy pushed the to-do list to the edge today!). Nevertheless, I also made sure I spoilt myself with some new beauties!
It’s been eight weeks today since my darling Charlotte Rose grew her wings and today I also ‘should have been’ 29 weeks. In those eight weeks I think I’ve spent about 90% of that time inside, at home and hiding from the world. Today was one of those days where I just needed to get out and smother MG with love, kisses, milk (!!!), fun and sun – so that’s exactly what we did. Below are some new goodies that now live in my bathroom and they are all magnificent #totesnotanoverreaction >
BY TERRY – Baume De Rose Hand Cream > As I am now obsessed with anything rose scented, I had to have this! By Terry has been a long-time lover of mine when it comes to make-up, so I’m feeling very fancy today with this divine hand cream all over my (now) pretty paws! This cream is infused with antioxidant-rich rosehip oil and suitable for sensitive and fragile (AND fancy!) hands. You need this #justsayin
BY TERRY – Cellularose Oil Elixir > Ouch, this is probably (no actually it IS!) the most fancy AND expensive skincare I’ve ever bought – but totes worth it. I literally came home and washed my face off so I could put some on! I’m a big oil/serum user, so this is pretty much perfection. It’s formulated with rosehip oil and white rose extracts – it smells absolutely beautiful. It’s extremely nourishing and can be worn under make-up. It does not clug once the foundation is applied (yes, ‘clug’, that’s my new word), in certain problemo areas on your face – like some not-so-fancy creams! If this makes me a skin-snob, sign me up for life babyyyy!
BURBERRY – Body, Eau De Parfum > I had never even heard of this until I almost fell over myself as I chased after the sales assistant at DJ’s to ask what she was wearing last week! To sound all fancy and stuff like a perfume-pro… The top notes are green absinthe, exquisite peach and refined freesia. There is also floral heart notes (um, ok now I sound super fancy!) of natural rose and iris – probably why I love it so much. The “sensual base notes” (woo-woo!) are of woody cashmeran, creamy vanilla, seductive amber (!?) and musk. Basically, it’s freakin’ amazing! One of my top-ten now fo-sho!
DIPTYQUE – Tam Dao, Eau De Parfum > This scent is Sandalwood, Cedar, Coriander, Ginger & Amber – scents of Asia is the way they describe it. If you are a woody or spicy scent kinda-gal, this one is really beautiful (as are all Diptyque scents by the way!)
I’m sorry in advance if I have encouraged any cheeky CC action! Not really. We all deserve to feel a bit fancy every now and again!
