This may be completely unrelated to the chocolate giving Christian festival, however I have managed to gain quite a collection of perfumes and body sprays in the past six months and I thought it was about time I share them all with you.
So I’m starting with the perfume I have had the longest, which is Dot by Marc Jacobs. I got this when I was on the way back from holiday in the duty free shop. It’s a very strong sweet scent and I used to wear it everyday.
My second perfume is one that I created myself while on holiday in Italy. I have a blog post all about it which you can find here.
I received this set for Christmas two years ago and it contained ‘Euphoria’, ‘Obsession’ and ‘Eternity’. My favourite out of these three would probably be ‘Euphoria’, it’s incredibly light and I’ve used pretty much all of it. ‘Obsession’ has a deeper scent and is more dark and musky.
The packaging on this bottle is absolutely beautiful. The scent to go with it is quite musky but not as strong as ‘Obsession’.
The small collection I have of Hollister contains two body mists in the scents ‘Cresent Bay’ and ‘Solana Beach’. Cresent bay is by far my favourite, this led me to investing in the perfume of it also, which has a longer lasting scent but is still extremely sweet and girly.
This is my joint favourite perfume with the next one I will show you. It’s a pretty floral scent and it’s quite light which means it’s good for everyday as it’s not too overpowering.
Finally is my other joint favourite perfume. The Packaging is a beautiful rose gold and the rectangular shape is simple yet effective. The scent of this perfume is very classic and slightly sweet. It’s my favourite one to use on a night out as I don’t want to wear it too much and run out!

So… I’ve just started my Easter holidays and have only dipped my toe into the Ocean that is supposed to be my GCSE revision. Therefore when better to procrastinate and do some online browsing! I’ve created a list of my favourite high-end handbags at the moment, which I could only dream of owning. Enjoy!
Céline Micro-luggage handbag in multicolour textile
I have always been a fan of the classic Céline bags. I love the more square shape of them and I feel like they would be a bag that you could use quite a lot due to its size and practical shape. Alongside that they are absolutely beautiful, especially with the burgundy colour in the picture above. Unfortunately however, with a price tag like that, it might be a while before I can get my hands on one!
Escada Handbag ML40
I was surprised by how much I liked this bag. After scanning through the handbag selection Escada had, I didn’t really think they would have anything I would like, but this one did stick out to me. As you can probably tell I’m a sucker for dark reds and burgundy. I have always seen fashion bloggers just carrying round small bags similar to this and for that reason this bag has kept growing on me.
Dolce&Gabbana Medium Sicily mix bag in leather
As it is officially the first day of Spring today, I thought I should include some pastels into the mix and this beautiful Dolce&Gabbana bag did the job very nicely. This bag comes in many different colour variations and plain colours too, but I think this bag would work nicely as a statement piece. The shape is beautiful and simple and is most definitely near the top end of my wishlist.
Chanel Flap Bag Light Beige
Okay, so technically this isn’t a handbag, and neither is the next one(sorry!) but you must admit that it is a classic. The Chanel flap bags have been around for such a long time and the vintage black ones are something that most fashionistas dream of having. When having a look through the Chanel website, I came across this stunning yet probably the most impractical coloured bag. Who cares? Fashion before practicality!
YSL Shoulder Bag Aquamarine
My introduction to the YSL shoulder bags was actually when I first saw it on Samantha Maria’s Youtube Channel. They are a stunning piece for a night out and would instantly make any outfit stylish and classy. This aquamarine colour is so eye-catching and brilliant for creating a statement piece of itself.
Chloé Faye Suede Shoulder Bag
Last but not least is the Chloé Faye bag! This is my favourite bag out of all of the bags I found and I most definitely plan on getting one of these in the future. I fell in love with this bag when I first saw it on Fleur DeForce’s Youtube channel. Once again my favourite colour is the burgundy and I think the suede on it is so gorgeous! The metal circle on the front of the bag makes it so recognisable and chic! I love it 🙂
