Spiced butternut squash soup 

I love a good soup and home cooking. We are all very busy this days but we also have think about what we eat .Home cooking is very easy and doesn’t need to be complicated. I know this soup is probably out of season but I really liked sound of it. Yesterday was very cold and mirsable so I thought I will give it a go. 

It was so easy to prepare and cheap as well and what’s more important pretty quick.

Secret scent box 

Secret scent box it is a subscription service where you pay £15 every month and you will receive 3 perfume samples, 3 ml each which will last up  to 30 days using 4 sprays a day.  Each scent is randomly picked. And as I am absolutely obsessed with the perfumes and always looking for new fragrances this service give me a chance to try some great fragrances before making design on my next purchase. 

This month I have received 

W- by Ted Baker 

This is very gentle and sophisticated fragrance which I have never tried before, I don’t know why but it never appealed to me , maybe because of bottle design which is nothing wrong with, but also there is nothing unusual which cought my eye . But going back to the fragrance is very fresh with notes of peony , african violet, pink orchid, raspberry, cedar and vanilla which makes it great day time fragrance especially suitable in spring and summer.  I  was impressed with “W” how lovely and light is but for another hand it doesn’t last all day, I couldn’t smell anything in the evening which is not what I am used to.  Personally I would not buy it just for that practical reason, but if someone is not bothered by the fact that fragrance doesn’t last that long , this could be a lovely daily weare 👍

Amor Amor -by Cacharel 

This is another fragrance i haven’t been able to use before and this is a classic because I have seen it in the shops for many years, and I little bit disappointed with myself that I have never bought it as this is surprisingly great perfume, It’s a fruity floral that’s both fresh and sexy , it makes me feel little bit different , it makes me stand out from the crowd lol and what’s very important for me it does last all day, definitely worth buying it. Well I know I will 😉

Mon Guerlain- by Guerlain 

Oh this is my favourite out of the whole trio, simply because it’s  luxurious,very strong (and I love strong), very feminine and sensual. It makes me feel very special . I will be wearing it on the daily basis and  on the special occasions as well. I couldn’t be more happier with this perfume and absolutely recommend it to other ladies who love little bit of luxury in life 😊

Eye love

OOlution is the result of founder Anne-Marie’s mission to create skincare that doesn’t rely on just one or two ingredients, but a host actives. She also wanted it to be a treat to use and to steer clear of synthetic ingredients and palm oil. She certainly succeeded at what she set out to achieve with this luxurious eye cream . The 100% natural formula is hydrating and rich in antioxidants, helping to diminish dark circles and reduce puffiness, whether you use it at the end of the long  day or in the morning after 😉

BC Bonacure -Hair Treatment 

I love discovering new products and one of them is a BC Bonacure Oil Miracle Brazilnut Oil Pulp Treatment by Schwarzkopf Professional.  This cute little pot lasts about month using it twice a week, if you have medium length hair like myself , work into mid-lengths and ends of towel dried hair , combing trough it to ensure it’s evenly spreaded, than leave it for 10 minutes and rinse it off thoroughly. So why I like it so much? Because innovative argan powder particles gently removes impurities from hair while macadamia nut intensely nourishes and UV filters help protect from the sun , which makes my hair very smooth,shiny and more manageable.  Definitely will recommend this product.  I have received this pot in my Glossybox and it is a sample size of 30 ml , which if you want to try it is available on http://www.schwarzkopf-professional.co.uk at the price of £3.95 

This Works 

This little gem was one of the products I have received in my Glossybox March edition. In Transit camera close- up is a hero product for very good reason… why ? Because it’s just what my skin needs when it has lost its equilibrium. This primer balances, plumps and brightens skin leaving it lovely and smooth ready for photo shoot, there are rumours that Victoria Beckham loves it so much lol.I like to use it over my usual moisturiser or face oil for extra hydration boost and I am ready to apply my makeup. I would happily recommend this product it really gives me fresher looking makeup and it lasts all day . The only bad thing is that it cost £28 for 30 ml ,so it is bit expensive, but for another hand you only need small amount of it pea size for whole face . 

Worth trying 😉
