My All Time Favourite Perfume: Elie Saab

I'm constantly buying perfumes, I'm extremely fickle when it comes to sticking to one and have bounced between different ones for so long. Prime example: one Summer it was Dolce&Gabbana "Light Blue" While I loved it, I only repurchased it once and then moved on to something else! so It's astounded me that I've repurchased this Elie Saab perfume on a number of occasions. 
Firstly how gorgeous is the bottle? It's so feminine and pretty and looks so pretty on my dressing table. I was honestly hooked from first sniff and I can't tell you the amount of times I've been asked what perfume I've been wearing, when I've been wearing this. I find perfumes are quite a personal thing and it takes a lot of searching for one you love, and will happily wear over, and over and over again and I really think I've found the one!

Top Notes: African Orange Flower
Middle Notes: Jasmine 
Base Notes: Patchouli, Virginia Cedar, White Honey, Rose

I'm not the best at describing perfumes, but it smells both fruity and florally but not in a sickly sweet way. This lasts for ages on the skin, and unlike some other perfumes you can still smell it after a few hours which I love as I tend to pack perfume on when I can't smell it any more and it can be overbearing for those around you. Over all I don't have a whole lot to say about this perfume, only that it's different to anything else out there and works well in both Summer and Winter!

Prices start from €51 but the 30ml lasts for ages! Available nationwide.

May "Morning Shower" Routine

As a nosey parker I love reading blogs and watching vlogs about the products people use, especially shower products as I'm always looking out for new products. I find you can often get stuck in a rut on the products you use and use the same products over and over again! I mix mine up every few weeks so I thought I'd do some posts on what my favourite shower products are this month! Below was my typical Morning Shower routine in May :)
This has to be my favourite scent of all time. It smells absolutely divine and for €9 you literally don't need to buy a body wash for at least 4 months, it lasts that long!It's a 500ml bottle and I literally can't get through it and I use a lot every day!  I love Soap&Glory body washes but this has to be the best smelling one. It smells like Sugary Limes but isn't too overpowering. It leaves your skin smelling and feeling delish.
I heard a lot about this Shampoo on the blogosphere so when I was 2 for under €5 in Tesco I picked up both the Shampoo and Conditioner. As I've recently got Ombre I'm wanting to look after my hair a little bit more and I find this Shampoo is really nourishing and leaves my hair extremely shiny and healthy looking. I'm not too sure if I would pay full price for it however. I'm  just not completely blown away with it.
Like I said I got 2 for the price of 1 and went for the matching conditioner. As someone who backcombs their hair I need a good conditioner and was really impressed with it. I find my hair is nearly tangle free after using it and feels extremely soft and smelling lovely! I will 100% repurchase it as it lasts around a month which is fantastic for me, as I go through conditioner like there's no tomorrow!
BEST SCRUB I HAVE EVER USED, HANDS DOWN. Literally this is my go too scrub and even when I don't have any stubborn tan to remove I reach for this. My skin is left so incredibly soft and subtle after I use this, it's hard to explain. I suffer from dry skin and my skin has never felt softer. This is my must have scrub for the Summer. A bonus is that the scrub itself is pink! You can read my full review HERE
I like to follow up the Body wash theme and follow with the Body Buttercream. It's rich and luxurious and leaves my skin feeling so incredibly soft and smelling like something out of heaven. At €15 it's not the cheapest moisturiser, but it really does work and with such a fresh citrus scent it's perfect for Summer! It sinks in quickly and like the body wash a little goes a long way!
During the Summer I'm all over sweet, fruity scents and this one smells so amazing! I swear after I'm finished in the shower I smell like a fruit bowl exploded on me! This is light and fresh and definitly not over powering as it's only a light body splash and it only lingers for an hour or two after application so I always bring it with me, if I'm out and about!

What I Wore | Topshop Tartan Leggings

I wore this on Tuesday evening to the Benefit event. I was busy running about during the day and wanted to wear something easy! The weather was lovely on Tuesday, a far cry from Monday so I wore a T-shirt and braved no jacket! It was a great feeling and I'm really excited for the weather to get warmer. I haven't taken down my Summer wardrobe just yet, but here's hoping it's going to be sooner rather then later!
I found these leggings on the top of the fresh washing pile and decided to rock them, as I wasn't bothered looking something else,anyone else do that? and then I grabbed a black tank and looked around my room for a top to throw over it! I've had this fringe top for ages now and get so much wear out of it! It's perfect for the Summer and looks funky over a bikini too for a handy cover up. 
The outfit is really simple and comfortable. I've gotten so much wear out of these leggings and they get more and more comfy with each wear. I picked them up in Topshop a few months ago and wish I'd bought another pair as I love them so much! I wore a statement necklace as I felt it needed a bit of bling and I love the iridescent colours in this necklace from Penney's.
I wore my Zara studded high tops that I picked up in Spain at the start of the year and I kind of forgot about them until yesterday! I've only worn them a handful of times but my God are they comfy. I love the stud detail and are a nice change from Converse. I love dressing more casually and feel more confident in this outfit then I would in sky high heels!
