Bach Good Night Spray

I came across this a few years ago and it has literally sat on my bedside table ever since, with only the occasional use if I really can't sleep, but I began using it again recently and it does smell so good! It has the scent of 'English Organic Lavender' but having checked out Bach Flower Remedies' website, I've seen that it is all natural, achieving its gorgeous smell from a blend of different aromatherapy oils and flower essences, which are Rock Rose, Impatiens, Clematis, Star of Bethlehem, Cherry Plum with White Chestnut and English Organic Lavender. 

By spraying it into my pillow, and around the room if I'm really getting into it, it makes everywhere smells lovely as you're falling to sleep and it does make you drowsier faster. I was pleased to see that this company really care about the impact of their products and do not test on animals and the packaging is 100% recyclable. It's always nice to feel good about where a product comes from and this is a very organic company which I will probably purchase more off.

Outfit Post from the Summer

My lovely auntie sent these to me recently from when we went into London to see the Queen's jewels in Buckingham Palace for my grandparents 50th Wedding Anniversary. This is a very simple outfit which really stands out with the bright patterned leggings which I have been complemented on by a kind stranger. I am wearing my white top from Fornorina in Brent Cross, love heart leggings from Topshop and my statement fluffy bag from River Island. I wore some gladiator sandals to finish the look and my Tom Ford sunglasses which have disastrously been ruined by a bike accident in Switzerland, now I have a nice scar under my eye and on my chin, nice. However I was eyeing up some Chanel ones in Harrods the other day so fingers crossed for birthday or Christmas which I will be spending in hot, sunny Australia. Can. Not Wait.

Barry M and Ted Baker Presents

This weekend one of my friends is hosting a party and I do love giving makeup as a present because it looks lovely and its a present which you can actually use as oppose to a what I would call 'Temptations present', a sparkly box, jar or room decoration which looks great, goes on your shelf and is never as well appreciated as sometime which you get a little bit of joy from!
So, as you can see, my friend is receiving this Ted Baker shower gel and eau de toilette which I know will smell gorgeous as I actual have the perfume from another TB set. I thought this was a great reduction in Debenhams going for a mere £5 for Ted Baker and leaves a little room for a few little presents on top! Now another good brand bargain, Barry M were doing a 2 for 1 or half price or something with this Lash Modelling Mascara which I think has great packaging in a lovely vibrant lilac and gloss. This Glossy Tube looks very pink and sickly but they tend to come out quite sheer so it gives a gloss to the lips with a good tint, however this is just from other Barry M products as I have obviously not opened these as they are not for me...shame.

Furry Leather Converse Boots

My newest shoe purchase, the Converse furry, lace up, boots! They are from Converse's new Suede and Leather collection and are such great boots! I wouldn't consider them my usual style but my mother decided I needed another pair of flats (apparently, the new Brogues and Creepers weren't acceptable because ''you can't wear proper socks with them'' - yes, really) so a power shop at Office yielded these lovely, practical and warm boots. 
I've had a pair of the of the normal Converse before but having narrow, size 7 feet, the solid colour style always made my feet look really long and didn't really do a lot for me. So, my original pair were patterned. Red and white kind of check patterned with strawberries and watermelons on (think less three year old, more retro, they were nicer than they sound) and this seemingly solved the problem but I've never been a big trainer lover. Especially normal sports trainers, so when I was told I could only wear trainers by the school for my week-long trip to Italy I bought these patterned Converse, which did the job and have been used since, but effectively got trashed with the dust, dirt and general grime that Rome and Sorrento bring to shoes.  

So here they are : warm, comfortable and with lots of furry flaps, laces and button holes it brokeup the shape, making my feet look great! Also, a complete family of strangers came up to me in Thorpe Park to tell me they liked them. Isn't that sweet?
