My Top 5 Perfumes

Hello Lovelies!
Perfume is something I can't leave the house without wearing and I have quite a large perfume collection, so for today's post I thought I would share with you guys my top 5 perfumes.

5. Jimmy Choo
I really like this perfume, it has quite a woody/gingery smell and is perfect for wearing in the evening as it is quite a heavy scent. I also love the bottle, it looks very nice sat on my shelf.

4. Wonderstruck by Taylor Swift
I love a good celebrity fragrance, and wonderstruck is perfect. This is a great day time fragrance, it smells really sweet and fruity and is very girly. I wore this a lot during college, I think this is my 3rd bottle :')

3. Emporio Armani Diamonds Rose
This is a really fresh perfume and I think it's good for both daytime and night time as it's not overly fruity, it is quite floral. Again I love the bottle, it has a diamond pattern all the way around, just like the original diamonds perfume, but this bottle has a pretty pink tint to it.

2. Taylor by Taylor Swift
Taylor is faring well in my countdown as another one of her fragrances has made it into my top 5. Like Wonderstruck, this is another fruity perfume which I completely fell in love with when I first smelt it in Boots. 

1. Lady Million by Paco Rabanne
Lady Million is definitely my favourite fragrance, it's just a classic. I'm sure you guys know what it smells like, and just like the male version, when someone walks past wearing it you automatically know what fragrance it is.

I hope you guys enjoyed reading this post, let me know in the comments what your favourite perfume is, do you have and love any of the perfumes I talked about?

Thanks for reading :)

My Dressing Table/Makeup Storage

Hello Lovelies!
If you have read my previous blog posts you will have seen parts of my dressing table in the background, so in today's post I am going to show you around and tell you how I store my makeup.

So this is my dressing table/storage/bedside unit. This unit has been in my room since I was little and I have recently organised it so the top drawer is makeup storage and the bottom 2 are general bit and bobs drawers.

In the center of my dressing table I have this crate of the products I reach for most. I bought this crate from Home Bargains for £2.99, it is meant to be used in the garden but I thought it was great for storing things in my bedroom. In here I keep my moisturiser, cleanser and toner, hair products and my brushes which I stand in old jam jars.

I also have this vintage style glass container which I keep my cotton wool pads in, and a glass dish which I got in France, in here I keep my baby lips.

Here is the  lamp which stands on my dressing table I recently bought it at Wilko for around £15. 00, I love the vintage stand and the button design, it's very cute!

So here is the drawer where I keep my makeup, it's not the neatest of drawers, it's what I would call an organised mess. This drawer organiser is from Ikea, I have had it for quite a while but i'm sure they will still sell something similar. It's really handy for sorting my makeup and makes finding things easier especially when I am in a rush. Let me know in the comments if you would like a more detailed post on my makeup collection.

I hope you enjoyed this post guys! If you have done a similar post showing us around your dressing table be sure to leave the link in the comments - I would love to see it :)

Kiko Haul

Hello Lovelies!
Today I am going to share with you guys my latest Kiko purchases, most of them were on sale so I picked up some bargains, and you guys know how much I love a good bargain :)

Rock Attraction Blush 02 Guitar Rose - £12.90 £4.00
I love this shade, it looks very natural so I have been reaching for it a lot. Also how fab is the packaging?! The design is amazing, and definitely stands out among all my other blushers.

Rock Attraction Blush 01 Pearly Rock - £12.90 £4.00
This is more of a highlighter than a blush, it gives a beautiful glow when applied. Both of the blushes I purchased are nicely pigmented and blend well, so they are really easy to work with.

Smart Lipstick 905 Red Coral - £3.90
This lipstick wasn't in the sale, but was still a great price. I was surprised by the quality of this lipstick, usually cheaper lipsticks aren't really that good, but this one is long lasting and moisturizing.

Extra Volume Lip Gloss 15 Pearly Beige - £6.90 £2.90
I never used to wear lip gloss, I was always a lip stick kind of girl, but recently I have been enjoying them. This is a nude gloss and a great edition to my collection.

Overall I am really impressed by the quality of Kiko, I will be purchasing from them in the future for sure! What do you guys think of Kiko, let me know in the comments :)
