The Perfect Affordable Everyday Fragrance | Cashmere by NEXT

Clearly, I'm loving the affordable lifestyle right now, with my last post being a designer Chloe Faye Handbag dupe and now a budget friendly beauty item that is, in my opinion, one of the best fragrances you can buy for under £20. For a long time I forgot about Next in association to beauty products, despite Next's Just Pink Fragrance being iconic in my school years, it was the affordable, pretty packaged and perfectly feminine scent that slayed. With it's recent change of packaging (to make it even prettier I must say), it looks better than ever, making the perfect gift for young girls that are new to perfumes. While browsing I was suprised how many new fragrances Next has brought out and instantly this statement gold bottle caught my eye... predictable I know.

Aside from looking great in my room, it genuinely does smell gorgeous. Cashmere Eau De Parfum is described as a 'soft and sensuous fragrance combining beautiful florals and delicate powdery musks' which I can completely vouch for. I always have been terrible at explaining scents but this is so lovely, a soft fresh scent that feels just the right amount of both mature and feminine. It is said to be rather similar to Estée Lauders Sensuous Nude Perfume which is £76, so if you're a fan of that one then maybe this is the affordable, everyday scent for you which will allow you to keep your designer fragrances for nice occasions. Costing only £12 for a 100ml bottle is what makes Cashmere a real winner, proving that you don't need to spend loads on dolla on a luxurious scent if you can't or don't want too. Check out their gift sets as well as they're a lovely affordable fragrance for anyone!

Have you tried any other Next Perfumes I need to try?

The Perfect Chloé Faye Dupe (Only £15!)

*PLEASE NOTE* I am currently writing this in the garden while the sun is shining and I couldn't be happier if I tried. This positivity does not sway my opinions at all.. okay maybe it does a little. Us brits aren't used to summers that actually feature the sun! Now I've set the scene I guess I should talk about this beautiful bag...If you've been looking for a dupe for the Grey Small Chloé Faye designer bag because you haven't quite got that budget yet or maybe you never plan on spending £1000 on a bag, then this blog post is for you! I couldn't believe the quality of this bag when it arrived because, to be honest, I was quite dubious when I ordered it through a seller on eBay. Costing only £15 including postage and packaging, I had no idea what would arrive from Hong Kong, but to my surprise, the delivery did not take long- about two weeks- and the pictures/ description were completely accurate. 

As you can see I chose the grey version as I found it looked the most 'expensive' although now the brown version is catching my eye... I guess for £15 each I could have both! As to be expected with these sort of dupes the quality is not on the same level designer brands but I can not complain. In terms of size, the dimensions are 22x3x17cm, with a strap length of 120cm to wear across body. In a simpler sense, I can fit the necessities in it, phone, make-up pieces and a medium-sized purse which is a huge plus for me, as I hate having to take out things from my purse to fit into tiny bags. It is very basic inside with a small compartment for cards/ little things. Overall, I can't recommend this enough if you're happy having budget alternatives!

Please do let me know of any other designer dupes I need to try!

Twenty-Two | Birthday OOTN #Style Diary

I have just celebrated by 22nd birthday and I'm pleased to say Taylor Swift's song '22' has never been more relatable! (great song btw) Apart from that, there are several things I've learnt since my (what feels like yesterday) big 21st! This is the first birthday I've actually felt different in my age, not in a bad 'oh hell I'm definitely no longer a teenager' way but a refreshing confidence in who I am and not feeling like I have to pretend to be someone I'm not to meet societies stereotypes... but this isn't a deep philosophical rambling so before this gets too long here's what I wore to celebrate at Matfen Hall where I enjoyed a mouthwatering meal and a lovely spa day!

ASOS Wishlist | Sweet Summer '17

Despite this rainy weather we're having here in the North East of England, I am in full blown summer  mode! I'm guessing it's because the sun was a massive tease last week and gave us a few gloriously sunny days without a cloud in the sky. It was also the week that I booked an exciting trip to the Canaries this September as a last bit of summer fun before starting my last year at Uni! Since then I've been scouring all the usual fave sites and obviously Asos has me wishing I had buckets of disposable money to enjoy this summer... here's what's currently waiting to checkout in my basket.

Let me know what your lusting after this Summer.
