My Favourite Summer Scents 2017

Everybody loves to smell good, don’t they ? Well for me I’m all about the perfumes of recent. I love sweet smelling scents that exhume flourescene and vibrancy from people- That’s the scents I like to smell and wear myself, I believe perfume reveals a lot about character and personality from a person without even getting to directly know them !  So here are a few scents that I have been using for years and years but have really stuck out to me in 2017 for their amazing smells and designs!

1.La Vie Est Belle’-Lancôme

I got this perfume this year and honestly it has become my favourite ever since and that’s why it has to be top on the list! This scent has a sweet smell bursting out wist strong smells that is very log lasting and absolutely perfect for the summer time – such a gorgeous scent

2.Little Black Dress-Avon

Now I wouldn’t say this scent is exactly the sweetest but it does give you an instant kick when you first smell it, I guess this scent would be perfect for a night out rather than if you were out in the daytime sun- this scent represent maturity to me which is still what I like at times and is still perfect for the summer time       IMG_2396.JPG3.White Linen- Estee Lauder

Hmm, once smelling this I thought woooo this is definitely something my Mum would wear as a perfume. It is very strong and very mature for a summer scent for teens, lool that’s the best way I can describe it. Nevertheless I actually enjoy wearing it as a saytime scent. It kind of has a edgy and vitange vibe to it which I find fascinating and feinitley a summer scent of mine for the year IMG_2398.JPG4.Si – Georgio Armani

Okay so we are back to the sweet smelling scents once again and this perfume is similar to the Lancôme one, however I would say that the Lancôme perfume is more sweeter smelling. Si however is a light scent that could be worn for everday use, even if you are not going anywhere special. It lasts long and is very easy to wear, I’m sure anyone would adore this scent –

I would have to compare Eternity Moment to Little Black Dress as it doesn’t completely have a sweet scent but it has a mature scent to it. Honsetly what attracted me to this was the bottle , I’ve really been loving things that are pink lately and I found the packaging for this so cute.!

IMG_24016.Pink Lemonade -Bath and Body Works

I got this spray in Canada from a shop called Bath and Body works ( Similar to The Body Shop or Soap&Glory) it’s actually a spray but it has a really sweet scent, I can compare it to Lucozade as it is the same flavour of Pink Lemondae and I definitely have savoured this to prevent it from running out due to it’s sweet scent- one of my favs!

Seductive. All I could think about this Perfume really , This scent yet again has a sweet scent but has a kind of intriguing scent to it especially if it is worn lightly. This is definitely a scent to wear for a girls night out or for a romantic date at it leaves a sensual; aftermast on the skin!

The Books That I Love…

Books. An item with hundreds of pages and thousands of words that you fixate your eyes upon. Some may sink through to your heart and clasp your eyes until tears of heartbreak pour out, some may even do the same- but only with laughter. Some may leave you in absolute awe of how an author can come up with such a creative concept and simply turn it into a story…

I may not have time to read the all the twilight’s and the Harry Potter’s but these books that I’ve read have either influenced my outlook on life or like above have simply left me in absolute wonder of how a story could be that good. Here are some of a few!

img_20321. To Kill a Mockingbird

Now this book I kind of had no choice about reading since it was for my GCSE’S. But I immediately fell in love with the meaning behind this book. We are immediately introduced to Scout and Jem at such a young and tender age and we see thing through the eyes of Scout who explores how prejudice and discrimination is at a high in her neighbourhood. The book explores how Tom Robinson and Boo Radley are simply treated differently because of their circumstances; Tom being black and Boo being a recluse. To me the moral of the story is to simply do not do anything that does no harm to you – similar to the mockingbird. it’s wrong to do harm to them as all they do is just sing.

 

img_20332. The Great Gatsby

Another one I had no choice in reading as I was doing it for my English A-level but this also has a powerful meaning behind the book. The book explores how the obsession with riches and status can damage and ruin your whole journey of life. Gatsby’s obsession with not only money but Daisy Buchanan leaves readers in despair as they slowly watch his life slip away. The unique use of symbols by Fitzgerald hints at how in life we chase after materialistic things leaving behind the importance of value and morals as they may seem less important. The use of the blue water and the green light leaves readers in suspense of just how the “great” Gatsby ends up in the deep end.

3. A Piece Of Cake

Cupcake Brown’s memoir of how her twisted life of pain and struggles left me reading on and on. I felt amazed of how a young girl manages to go through the death of a parent, child abuse, drugs and poverty  to become an amazing author. I personally enjoy sad books as they allow me to reveal my emotions and relate to the character and this book did just that. The fact that these events were all true also acts as an added interest.

constance-briscoe-beyond-ugly-triumphing-over-a-loveless-childhood-_14. Ugly

Similar to a piece of cake , Ugly explores the true story of Constance Briscoe and her journey through life as she faces abuse from her mother. Her harrowing journey ends with happiness as she finally becomes a barrister at the end of it. A brilliant book to read and a mixture of both melancholic and joyful moments.
