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.

OOTD: Wedding Reception.

Playsuit - Topshop
Shoes - Zara
Extremely pale skin - My own...

First up I wanted to apologise for the poor quality of these photos. I mentioned I was at a wedding at the weekend and silly me forgot to pack my camera so these are taken on my iPhone. Moving on, this is what I wore for the evening reception on Saturday night. I adore this playsuit, I managed to get it in the sale earlier this year after eyeing it up the week before when it was full price. I love that it is so simple but classy and sophisticated at the same time. I really like the lace detail around the edge too, it adds a little more uniqueness to the outfit.

I also managed to pick up these gorgeous shoes in Zara sale whilst in Barcelona. They are so comfy and the perfect block heel to add a little height without making my feet feel as if they want to fall off. This is certainly one of my favourite outfits at the moment.

Here's a cheeky close up of me and the hubby at the wedding too...

A quick catch-up.




It's been a while since I've done a Instagram/catch-up post so I thought I would give you a little insight into what I've been up to recently...

We finally got our key to our new house, we officially home owners!
After discovering a fab free from aisle in Tesco, I got a little to excited and picked up a few new things to try. The soft baked cookies are so yummy and made with no artificial ingredients. Yum.
I found this adorable coin purse in Primark and I knew I needed it in my life. I am always struggling to close my coin section (not cos I have too much money, but people insist on giving me as much copper as possible) and this is the perfect size to throw in my bag.
We found this really cute place to eat Mexican, that actually do gluten-free corn wraps. I had some amazing quesadillas with lime pulled pork. And yes, it was as good as it looks. 
Sunflowers for my third wedding anniversary. I carried these on my wedding day, the perfect gift.
My latest read... I will review ASAP.
M&S have upped their gluten free game once again. I picked up this sandwich pack to try, which was really good and better priced than those at Costa Coffee.
I adore the print of my new skirt. It was marked on the shelf as £10 and was actually reduced to £3! What a bargain! Expect an OOTD soon...

I hope you enjoyed this little catch up post, I'm actually away for a wedding this weekend so hopefully I will have lots of lovely photos to share with you.

What have you been up to?
