Fall Back, Sleep Longer!

Clocks go back Sunday 26th October at 2am... You get an extra hour in bed!!!!
Today officially marks the end of British Summer time which means it will get darker quicker because of the switch to daylight saving time. We will have longers days . Temperatures will begin to drop as Winter approaches, which calls for more cosy nights & lazy weekends (or in my case Hibernation)

The best start to any day is to have an invigorating or energising shower to get rid of that sleepy feeling & awaken the senses.  Radox have newly released  Invigorate shower gel to the bright citrus range collection which features Revive - Mandarin & Lemongrass, Uplifting - Pink Grapefruit & Basil and Energise - Key Lime & Peppermint. I was kindly sent 2 samples to try both Invigorate & Energise.

The Invigorate shower gel contains a combination of Zesty Lemon & Rosemary, it is the perfect fruity and refreshing fragrance to get me set up each day  , especially on Monday mornings with 9am lectures. Energise shower gel will leave you feeling rejunvenated each day with its blend of Key Lime & Peppermint , the scent reminds me of a mojito and will be great for the days I need a detox.

Both shower gels lather up well and leave a light scent on the skin which is not too overpowering. The packaging is bright and I love the easy grip handle which is great as I always prefer to hang my showergels.

The entire Citrus range is available nationwide at RRP £2.15 , currently Asda has it on offer for 90p. 

What are you most looking forward to, now we are approaching Winter?

Blaze On Fairy Lights *

A few weeks ago, I received a set of Radiant Hearts White LED fairy lights from Blaze On
It was good timing as I had only moved into my university apartment recently and felt my room was missing that extra something to make it look more homely.

From when I opened the package, I could tell that Blaze On's top priorities was customer service as the packaging alone was so intrigently detailed . The lights came wrapped in handcrafted orange tissue paper accompanied with a Daisy flower scented candle , which I am saving as it's too pretty to burn . Once I unwrapped the tissue paper, my beautiful lights were revealed through the clear-view window which made me even more excited to try them out.

I got the warm white version to give my room a soft ambience which after a long, hard day at university is definitely needed. As I have to pay my own bill these lights are bright enough to use when I do not want to use the main lights especially when I catch-up on my U.S TV shows (American Horror Story).Originally I hung them on the pole fixture in my room but realised it would be better suited on my bed head as that is the main focal point of my room plus I could make full use of the light strings.

Although the price of these luxury Radiant Heart lights are £27.50 which is higher in comparison to other fairy lights on the market,  I would say, it is worth the investment as the quality is really amazing,  they have a lifespan of approximately 10 years ( Up to 100,000 hours) and they're energy efficient. According to Blaze On , the LED bulbs use 90% less energy which makes them very economical. One thing I found was that the lights never get hot despite if they have been on all night ( night I fell asleep without plugging them out..blame university) which is important as safety is key. Note: All Blaze on fairy lights come with a 1 year electronic guarantee and UK technical support.

By purchasing these lights , not only are you are able to instantly update your home/room decor but you are also helping support local communities in Thailand through Blaze On's ethical commitment of utilising fair trade and ethically sourced products, which is great.

Blaze on, offer a wide variety of  lights to suit all homes and even sell incense sets & candles too.  UK delivery is from as little as £1.95 but if you spend over £40, it is free.  Currently they have £2 off on all orders over £10 using discount voucher code FAIRY.

As Christmas is coming up soon, why not decorate your home or even provide someone with the gift of light. Don't forget to check out the Blaze On website and  Blaze On Facebook page for more pictures and inspiration of how to style fairy lights!

 Peace, Love & Besos

Picstick *

It is no secret that I LOVE to take pictures...just take a look at my Instagram and you will see my addiction!  It is rare that I print any of my pictures, normally I just keep them on my Facebook , phone or SD Card because I have an digital photo frame.
Recently, I was contacted by PicStick to review their photo magnets. The timing could not have been more perfect,  as I knew I would have some new family pictures from my recent holiday which would look to add to my university room decor.
The PicStick website, is so easy and simple to navigate. Using there tools, you are able to upload pictures from your device (computer, tablet, hard drive etc) or via Dropbox or Facebook (including from friends Facebook profiles) within minutes.
For £9.50, you get a grid of 9 great quality glossy finished photo magnets.  easily separated by tearing along the perforated edges . At only 50x65mm and 0.7mm thick, they are just the right size to stick onto any metal surface. Due to sharing a kitchen with my friend in the apartment,  I decided the best place was on the radiator in my room as that was the only metal item in my room.
 I forgot to mention that it is FREE DELIVERY on all orders worldwide.  I received my pictures in less than 48 hours . The packaging was really sturdy, as the photo grid was free from any damages (folds, bends, scratches) on arrival , which was impressive as sometimes the postman is not always delicate with mail.

Fancy making your own personalised magnets or want to give a friend a personalised gift? have provided me with 25% discount for all my lovely readers, just enter the code VEN25 at the checkout and the discount will be applied to your order.

Peace , Love & Besos

J'adore Michael Kors

I have been going on and on to my family about wanting to get a Micheal Kors bag, and finally I can say I absolutely adore the latest addition to my bag collection.

I decided to go for the Michael Michael Kors Selma Medium Messenger bag. I love the colour-block contrast of  Black and White giving the bag an elegant and clean finish. The good quality Saffiano leather will ensures that my bag is scratch-proof and waterproof.

Originally I was quite surprised at the size of the bag. On first look you would think that it won't hold a lot, but believe me looks are deceiving. I can fit a hell of a lot of things in this bag without it looking bulky.

The bag came beautifully packaged in a white satin dustbag which meant that as well as travelling in style, my bag successfully made the journey perfectly intact.

As a messenger bag there are no handles but just a long white leather detachable strap. I love the fact that it is adjustable as I have huge worries with straps as I am quite short. Another great thing about the detachable strap, is that once taken off the bag becomes a cute clutch bag. This will be ideal for holiday, as it makes a great neutral day and evening bag.

What do you think of the Michael Michael Kors Selma Messenger?

Hugs and Kisses
