The Body Shop Sorbet in Moringa.


As soon as I saw these Body Sorbets hitting the blogging world I knew I had to try one. I've read hundreds of reviews before they were released in the shops and I really couldn't wait to get my hands on a bottle. I was lucky enough to get a few small samples at The Body Shop event I went to earlier this year and ever since then I've been addicted. 

The sorbets come in most of the fruity signature scents from TBS, as well as this one in the Moringa scent. I've never picked up the Moringa range before but the sample of this completely converted me, so I knew I needed to pick up the full size. It's a really floral, feminine scent and works so well as a body moisturiser. 

The actual texture of this moisturiser is like no other I've ever tried. It is, as the name suggests, a sorbet-like texture. It comes out the bottle looking quite frosty in texture and once rubs into your skin it just disappears leaving you super soft. This is a really light moisturiser, it's non-greasy and dries in seconds, so it makes getting ready much easier. Plus it leaves the scent on your skin for hours after you've applied. I'm so addicted to this I've even picked up the Grapefruit bottle to try too.

These sorbets are prices at £7 for 200mls, but look out for those discount codes for TBS as I got mine at 40% off - a total bargain.

Holi One Festival is coming to Manchester!

Next Saturday the Holi One Colour Festival is coming to Manchester and I can't wait! If you've not heard of the Holi One Festival it's currently making it's way around the biggest cities in the UK and spreading lots of love and colour. The festival is all about people coming together and experiencing fun, colour and music at a really memorable event. 

The idea is to wear white on arrival and leave the festival covered in colour. The powder itself is provided at the festival and is made from rice flour and food colouring, so is allergy free and will not stain most clothes. Every hour on the hour the powder is thrown in a celebration of colour whilst enjoying the live acts and entertainment.

I've never attended the festival before but I will be at the event next week, so do let me know if you're going. For those wanting tickets, the event takes place at Heaton Park in Manchester from 12pm on 2nd August and you can find tickets and more info here. I hoping to get some fab photos too, so expect a post after the event!

Bronze Goddess Body Oil.


I've had this really big urge to take a trip to Cheshire Oaks recently, so me and the hubby headed off to Chester in search of some bargains and a walk down by the river. I popped in my all time favourite outlet store, The Cosmetics Company and browsed the shelves for something lovely. Just as I was about to leave empty handed I spotted the Bronze Goddess range by Estee Lauder

I can't count the many times I've sniffed this fragrance in Boots and every time it reminds me of cocktails on a beach somewhere hot (or just in my back garden with this beautiful weather). This is the most gorgeous, summer fragrance that's really coconutty but not too overpowering and it completely transports you to back to your favourite holiday destination. 

I initially picked up the EDT but then I spotted the body oil and gave it a go.  It's a non-greasy oil that sinks into the skin in seconds but leaves you smelling summery for hours. I ended up buying the oil, not only because it was cheaper but I found the scent stayed on longer than a perfume. It's also really great as a moisturiser and has been perfect for days when I've spent a lot of time in the sun. This 100ml bottle only cost £26, which was £9 off the RRP.

If you're a big fan of fruity, summery scents this one will certainly be a winner.
