£12 Primark Zara Shopper Bag Dupe


Sorry about the lack of posts, As I mentioned back in May,  I got a full time office summer job and never get a chance to blog. Don't worry by mid September that will all change as I am leaving my job to return back to university (the land of students) *excited*

Anyway, on Monday after work, I randomly decided to pop into Primark as I was trying to waste some time before heading out to meet my friend for dinner. I was intending on just browsing the new A/W collection but seriously I don't know why I bother; especially when it comes down to Primark as there is always something that catches my eye which sends signals to my brain, and without hesitation I head straight to the till whether it be clothing, accessories, beauty or shoes lol :).

To my satisfaction as I went to the bag section, my eyes saw this beauty and instantly fell in love, (I mean who wouldn't this bag is beautiful and chic).

As I was looking at it, I saw the similarity to the Zara shopper bag that has taken the blogger world by storm. I mean although the shape is not exactly like the shopper basket, and more like a tote it is just as good and even better in the sense it is less likely to loose its shape as it does not open so wide. However, it has a detachable strap so it can go on your shoulder or just be used as an extra feature on the bag. it has stitching on one side front to denote that it is the front of the bag and it is lined inside.

Personally I would think this bag was from House of Fraser if I saw a person walking down the street, it is that high quality in my opinion. At the moment I cannot fault it for the following reasons:
  • Price is reasonable at only £12 ( £27.99 saving compared to Zara original shopping basket bag) 
  • Quality is high standard, although it is not real leather and most likely pleather.
  • Colour of bag is sleek and chic.
  • Inside the bag features 2 mobile pockets and a larger zipped space
  • Very roomie , especially as I am going to university there is no doubt I wont be able to fit a folder in there with ease and still have room for my normal handbag essentials.
If I was you , I would run down to your local Primark and pick up this bargain as I am sure they will fly off the shelves, luckily when i first saw it they had over 30 , when I told my sister to get one the following day they only have 4 left.

Peace, Love & Besos

NOTD - Rosebuds and Polka Dots

Blueberry 306, Bright Red 262, Coral 296, Peach Melba 318, Bright Green 290, Matt White 66

Hi Belles

I haven't been painting my nails for a while, as I wanted to give them a little breather. So since I have just started volunteering with Sue Ryder Care I thought I might go with something that would pop and also be appealing to the eye. I was really feeling the polka dots and decided to copy my duvet cover, which is reversible. It has a vintage floral, Cath Kidston style print on one side and red and white polka dots on the reverse. Any way that was the inspiration for the nails. I have also never tried the whole floral print design, and wanted to give it a little try out *I don't think I done too bad for a first time attempt lol*. I obviously need more practice, next time I may even try out more daring designs *now that I stole my sister's nail art dotting pens muhahah*

On another note, I'm going to another Employment Tribunal case tomorrow, which should be super fun. I might do another OOTD post if I can remember since it is really early in the morning.

Tropical Sunset Eau De Toilette


Long time no post lol. You must have realised that me and my sister are bargain hunters. We have seen that pound shops seem to be offering up some good deals on beauty products and not only are they good deals but they are also some very good high quality brands.

We have found that most of the stuff has been in Poundland etc, but the other day we found that 99p store are stocking 100ml perfumes, that are very similar to the top perfumes out there. I decided to purchase Tropical Sunset, *which seems to be a dupe of Hugo Boss Orange Sunset*. With a bargain like this you can't resist.

I know your first thoughts are that it will smell cheap, and the appearance will be lacking, but surprisingly your wrong *well in my opinion*. It has a very sweet and fruity scent. Usually most Eau de Toilette (EDT) perfumes don't tend to have a long lasting effect, but I was happy to find that this lasts for approx. 4+ hours, and being an EDT you can't really complain as some last a lot less.

I would typically use it as an everyday perfume/body spray, to freshen up throughout the day, or you could even use it as a room spray as it is cheap enough.

My Rating
Product: ★★★★
Price: ★★★★★
Packaging: ★★★
Quality: ★★★★
Scent: ★★★★

Decleor Aroma Cleanse Hydra-Radiance Smoothing & Cleansing Mousse


Some time ago, I ordered a free sample from Declor Paris Facebook. Now I had never heard of the company before so I was intrigued to test there products. Lucky for me they were offering a cleanser sample.

Decleor Aroma Cleanse Hydra-Radiance Smoothing & Cleansing Mousse

This 3 in 1 cleanser is perfect for maintaining a beautiful and glowing complexion even with busy lifestyles due to the following :
  • Deep cleanses as it lathers when wet to a mousse like texture to soften the skin allowing it to become clean and velvety soft.
  •  Removes makeup with stripping your skin of its moisture due to the essential oil of Neroli and plumps it up as it contains Hyaluronic acid.
  • Elimates dead cells by scrubbing with Papaya extract and use of the cleansing cloth to leave the skin with clarity and luminosity.
  • Provides your skin with radiance due to the featured white-bright complex ingredients of Mulberry tree & grape extracts.

    Also it contains no parabens or mineral oils
According to Declor by using this product as a result, your skin will be "perfectly clean and fresh, its hydration is preserved. Skin texture is smoother and radiant"

This HYDRA-RADIANCE CLEANSER comes in 100ml bottle with a white bag and 2 high quality weave cloths -  It retails for £26.00.

Personally , if it was last year , I would not think twice about spending that sort of money on my face due to working full-time during my gap year but unfortunately due to living on a tight student budget; I cannot justify spending £26 on a product that will be washed off in 5 minutes.

But by all means , if you can afford it definitely invest as it is amazing. For now i will have to cherish and try to savor my sample as possible lol :)

Peace, Love & Besos
