Stay in Touch x


You have probably all heard about Google/Blogger retiring google reader and potentially google friend connect. If you like me GFC is the main way I follow blogs and the thought that I won't be able to connect with all my lovely followers makes me kinds sad.
As this has been a big topic of conversation Bloglovin' seems to be the favourite place for everyone to get their blog fix. Bloglovin' is a brilliant place to view and read all your favourite blogs it's really user friendly not only to follow people but for other people to follow you and it's brilliant for discovering something new.
Bloglovin' have made it a really easy transition you can import all the blogs you follow on Google Friend Connect just by clicking THIS Link this will save you having to search for all your faves.



While we are on the topic of staying in touch I also have a Facebook page so if your not on Bloglovin' and you still want to keep up to date on my posts you can like me there.


I'm also on Twitter too!


Please leave you links to Blogs, Facebook and Twitter so I can follow you!

My Love for Jo Malone


Jo Malone was created here in Britain in 1994, the founder created  a handful of scents which were  "revolutionary in their discerning simplicity". Jo Malone has become an international name recognised and inspired by British style.
One of the most fantastic things about Jo Malone Fragrances apart from the Beautiful and classic packaging is the fact that you can create your own "Signature scent"  The fragrances can be worn alone but they can also be layered for "individual effect"

Jo Malone fragrance come under 6 different collections.

The first of my favourites is the Citrus collection
Refreshing, Energising and Enlivening

The second favourite of mine is the Fruity collection
Luscious, Enticing and tantalising

Light Floral Collection
Dewy, Delicate, Exquisite and Elegant

Floral Collection
Lush, Exotic and Intoxicating

Spicy Collection
Warm, Passionate and Intense

Woody Collection
Earthy, Aromatic and Grounding


The Fragrances that I personally Own are
Lime, Basil and Mandarin

this is probably my favourite scent and is the signature fragrance of Jo Malone "Peppery basil and aromatic white thyme bring an unexpected twist to the scent of limes on a Caribbean breeze, A Modern Classic"

Grapefruit

I find this quit a light everyday scent "Abundant grapefruit groves in coastal Spain. Rosemary, pepperminty and pimento add to the grapefruit's bright and sunny nature, Uplifting and refreshing.

English Pear and Freesia 

This was a surprising favourite but  I really Love it. "The essence of autumn. The sensuous freshness of just-ripe pears is wrapped in a bouquet of white freesia's, and mellowed by amber, patchouli and woods. Luscious and golden."

Blackberry and Bay

 this is the newest scent that I tried and it is just gorgeous. " Childhood memories of blackberry picking... stained lips, sticky palms. A burst of deep, tart blackberry juice, blending with the freshness of just-gathered bay and brambly woods. Vibrant and verdant."

The Fragrances that I am keen to try next are -
Nectarine, Blossom and Honey
Earl Grey and Bay
Pomegranate Noir
Orange Blossom
and French Lime

Jo Malone will regularly have a Limited Edition Collection and the Current one is really cute it's called Sugar and Spice

Images and quotes taken from Jo Malone.co.uk
and consists of
Bitter Orange and Chocolate
Redcurrant and Cream
Elderflower and Gooseberry - I would love to try this.
Ginger Biscuit
and Lemon Tart

In the future I would love to try some of the other products they offer, in particular the Candles I have heard lots of good thing about them.
As you can probably tell I'm more of a fruity/citrus kind of gal I'm not a huge fan of the spicy/Floral scents however Jo Malone could change my mind about that as the great fragrance combinations that have been created and that you yourself can create by combining scents I think even the hardest nose could find a perfume from Jo Malone that they fall in love with. I can't rave about them enough. Since discovering this perfume I don't wear anything else I love it

What is you Favourite Perfume?
Do you wear Jo Malone?

10 Things - Pet Peeves


Pet Peeves

1. Waiting ages sometimes days for someone to answer a text message.
2. Stealing my food then lying about it if you just asked me I would probably let you have it! At Halloween I bought one of the limited edition green Cadbury's cream eggs and put it in the fridge at work there are only 3 other people who work there 2 of them are my parents it went missing and I still don't know who took it!!!
3. People who read over my shoulder.
4. When people take your wet washing out of the machine and leave it in the basket and don't tell you. ( happens to me all the time )
5. Bad Breath!
6. Having different knife and folk I have to have them from the same set.
7. Hearing people chewing food
8. People who think I don't know what I'm doing! Just because I look young. Oh and by the way I'm not as young as I look!
9. The petrol light lying to me, don't turn off if you gonna run out!
10. This is the worst of all   Smelly people! There is no need for it it's just rude!

Comic Relief


All this week I have been holding a cakes sale in my Parents Crafts shop (where I slave day and night to earn a living) all in the aid of Comic Relief and Red Nose Day.
 I set up a giving page and  joined Davina McCall's team for #Twittermillion. Basically there are a load of famous people who are team leaders and they have been asking/begging their followers to join them and raise just £50 for Red Nose Day doing absolutely anything you want in the hope that they will raise a Million and as a reward each team leader has a special prize.








So I would like to say a 
BIG THANK YOU 

to all my lovely customers and especially Fiona Lucas who bought loads of my cakes and Rocky Road and other good stuff.

They all helped me Raise
£105.00
Which is amazing especially when I set myself a target of £65.00


Did you do anything for Red Nose Day?
