Review | Viktor&Rolf BonBon Couture Fragrance*

Viktor&Rolf, making signature fragrances since 2005. I was always drawn to Flowerbomb since I received a sample in a magazine and dreamed of one day to have it on my dressing table. Then BonBon was released, a sweet fragrance in an even sweeter bottle. Bonbon Eau De Parfum has had an upgrade, meet Bonbon Couture*.

For the ladies who persevere after a elegant yet fresh scent, with fruity top notes yet musky with sandalwood and vanilla base notes, this is the scent. Bonbon Couture is described as a more opulent, intense interpretation of the original Bonbon. With similar packaging, in the pink bow shape, it looks perfect on a vanity or perfume table.

It fits in well with my white bedroom, next to my other scents, but I'm definitely being drawn to it more often as we continue through September. When the parcel arrived at my house, I spritzed it over myself and went out to work. My client came downstairs and was memorised by the scent and wanted to know exactly what I was wearing.

The fragrance last around 6 hours before I need one or two quick sprays to top up, this is pretty good going as for me I never find any scents last more than around 4 hours except my Library of Fragrance cologne*.

Available at Selfridges from September 14th, Bonbon Couture* can be purchased in 30ml, 50ml and 90ml starting at £57.

I can't help but feel glamorous with this perfume, the scent, the design and the name, every girl needs Viktor and Rolf, I can't live without it now. Please excuse my grown out nails in this photograph, I was awaiting on my holographic dust powder, I'm so excited to try it!

Review | Sindt Frames*

Wow, I bet you're shocked to see a blogpost from me, I recently started a new full time job, a new place and so much other craziness blogging took a back seat! But I'm back, just in time for my favourite season of Autumn.

Going back to the new job, I now work full time in an office staring at a screen all day. Don't get me wrong, I love my job but my eyes hate me. I was an avid contact lens wearer however with the air con and the need to look at the screen the whole time it just didn't work. My eyes were struggling. Back to glasses I go.

I didn't want to be the speccy girl in the office, even though lots of other girls and guys wore glasses, I'd always felt a bit meh in mine however, designer glasses are expensive. I hate paying a lot for them, as I can't help my eyes being bad at their job! However this is where come in.

Online Glasses, Doctor Quality is there tag line and they're right. With my prescription in my hand I could try out glasses online and get them shipped straight to my door, no need to worry about picking up (except from your neighbour who had been weighed down with my holiday post, sorry!) and I was set. Sindt - Black

Eyeglasses online have been a bit wary when I've been discussed it with older family members however with my friends and colleagues, they all love the idea. I was super cautious of them turning up and being the completely wrong prescription however when trying them on, they're pretty great! And shining clean which, makes a change for me!

The best bit is the 'try on' section where you can try them out with pictures of yourself or the stock images to see how they sit on your face, and I think I chose pretty well. I picked up the frames Sindt* in black and I really like them. They are really comfortable as well. Sindt - Black

You can also pick up prescription sunglasses, as a driver I can't live without!  So are you needing another pair of glasses if yours didn't last the Summer? I know I am happy with mine! I have a coupon code for you guys GSHOT50 gives you all 50% off eyeglasses and sunglasses with free lenses(sale frames excluded). Let me know what frames you pick!

Mini Haul | Superdrug 3 for 2 Haul

Superdrug 3 for 2 deals are dangerous. You have the whole makeup section including nails and lashes to explore to find your deals. I loved the Christmas sale and managed to get 3 items for The Balm Cosmetics and saved £16! This time it was more of a budget bargain hunt ;)

MUA Undress Your Skin Highlighter in Iridescent Gold Gosh Natural Blush 39 Electric Pink Miss Sporty 24hr Eye Liner Plump Up Booster Waterproof

MUA Undress Your Skin Highlighters are a drugstore staple, so I picked up Iridescent Gold. The brilliant sides to the highlighters are: lightweight, blendable, cruelty free and only £3! What?! £3 for 7.5g of product, brilliant. I already own the shade Pink Shimmer for about 2 years now and I still haven't hit pan. I am so happy to have the gold shade now which works on my perfectly pale skin, I just wish that MUA would do a white highlighter now!

GOSH is a more extravagant brand to me however they are a Superdrug own/exclusive brand. I have purchased a couple of bits from them before but I wanted something to make the most of the 3 for 2 by picking up a slightly more expensive item that a few pounds. The Natural Blush is in the shade Electric Pink was £7.99 and for the price, I'd expect it to blend slightly better than it does. I love the colour and the pigment is the right amount to blend out but I need to try with a different brush I think.

MUA Undress Your Skin Highlighter in Iridescent Gold Swatch Gosh Natural Blush 39 Electric Pink Swatch Miss Sporty 24hr Eye Liner Plump Up Booster Waterproof Swatch

Miss Sporty eyeliner has never caught my eye. I've known of drugstore liners being favourited but then I never remember which one to get once I get to Superdrug/Boots. Miss Sporty clear mascara was one of my first makeup products and I still have one for brow setting now!  I saw Emily Canham on YouTube talk about Miss Sporty Eyeliner in one of her videos so I thought I'd give the Plump Up Lash Waterproof Eye Liner a go. Plus it ended up being free!

Have you picked up any goodies in the 3 for 2?
