A little R&R....

Candles are always part of my down time. Their warm scents create such a relaxing mood. Latley I have been favouring sweeter, warmer scents. However, in the summer I do tend to choose a fresh, upbeat, and fruity scent. I guess you can say that the candles I do choose favour the weather! Currently doing some work right now but cannot wait to go home later light a couple of candles and take a long hot bath!

Happy Friday!!

Perfume Collection

Current Perfume Collection!

I am a girly girl at heart - but I don't like anything to floral or too sweet.
Pink sugar -available at Sephora if you want to have a quick sniff- is way to sweet for me and makes my stomach turn!

However, scents like Ms. Dior Cherie or (my all time favourite) The original Paris Hilton perfume play on a musky but very womanly scent. And I adore them most out of my collection!

A Huge Haul!

Was in the mood this weekend for some SERIOUS retail therapy!

Thought I'd share with you all my selfish indulgences. Some of these are from my wish list! But I didn't buy everything.... so that means I behaved a little bit; right?

Hope everyone had a great weekend- and an even better relaxing Family day!

I needed a refill on my face cleansing products, Regular items are usually:
Clinique Clarifying Lotion both the Green and Purple bottles (however, the green bottle is for more acne prone skin types, which I unforunatley fall under... however I only use it at night to help wash away the day. I can post up a skin routine to follow this.)
Clinique pore minimizing serum
Clinique clarifying moisturizer

New items I am going to try:
I am always willing to try out a good mask - so I decided to go ahead and give this deep cleaning cucumber mask a try (they are usually available at all drugstores for around $1.00)
Origins Super Spot Remover
and Origins Stay Matte formula (a clear liquid that can be used over or under makeup to keep you looking matte all day)

A post to follow these new products will come to let you know how I feel about them.

Happy Late Valentine's Day xoxoxo

Hope everyone had a great Valentine's Day!
Wether you spent it with friends, just hanging out or with that special someone I hope the time spent was enjoyable!!

I actually celebrated Valentines Day the weekend prior; we went away for the weekend and went to a quite pub for dinner- needless to say there was no red in my wadrobe! But my Valentine got me the funniest and sweetest thing!

A teddy bear dressed in a red sweater! Cheesy but very cute ha ha!
