Beauty, Fragrance & Candles

    My Fragrance History

    I’ve been wearing perfume since an early age, and for that, I blame my mother. I’ve been wearing it for probably close to 12 years. I can’t be certain exactly when I started but I was definitely still in primary school. Of course I wore body spray in the early days such as ‘Impulse’, ‘Charlie’ and ‘So…’, but I also got into perfume quite early in life. Because of this, I feel totally naked if I’m not wearing a spritz or two of fragrance.

    Beauty, Wish List

    My America Wish List

    I’m jetting off to America in less than four weeks for almost three weeks of being the ultimate tourist. Sort of. It’s our final family holiday apparently, so with my parents and my younger brother, I’ll be visiting Denver, Monument Valley, the Grand Canyon, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Houston, Galveston, and Dallas, all in the space of 20 days. It’s going to be tight but all I’m worried about at the minute is the amount of shopping I’m going to be able to fit in. I’ve compiled my wish list for this trip, and although I know I’m not going to be able to afford everything on this list, a girl can dream.

    You may notice that a good proportion of these products can be bought in the UK but I’ve got loads of makeup to see me through until I get to America. I’m very much a fan of saving money, especially on high end products, hence why I’ve been waiting until America to buy these (this has been a trip in the making for about 18 months).

    First Post & A Pre-Holiday Clothes Haul

    A Pre-Holiday Clothes Haul | Essential Twenty

    For an entire week now, I’ve been trying to think about what I’m going to write for my first blog post. And it’s been bloomin’ hard going. All the basics about me can be read about in my About section but I feel like I need to dive straight into blogging, otherwise I’ll never get around to it. So I’m going to start off with a very, very small holiday clothes haul.
