L'Occitane TERRE DE LUMIÈRE eau de parfum - Summer evening in a bottle

I'm a massive fragrance lover, I can't go about my day without spritzing some nice scent onto my skin, I use perfume on daily basis, no matter if I go out or stay at home to do housework. I even pick my night time fragrance once I've showered and put my PJ's on :) I am truly obsessed with fragrances and fascinated by them, how they change and develop on the skin and how they trigger memories with one sniff and even change your mood.
I have many perfumes, some of them will be my classics forever repurchased, some are just one time purchase but I'm always eager to try new scents. I usually pick different scents for Autumn/Winter and Spring/Summer as there are some notes that I love wrapped around myself in colder weather and some notes that make me feel uplifted in warmer months.
I have been recently sent a beautiful fragrance form L'Occitane which has quickly stolen my heart. I had never tried perfumes from this brand so while I loved the description of the scent I wasn't sure how it will perform on my skin but, luckily, I was impressed.

New Dior Backstage Face and Body Foundation - review

Foundation is one of makeup products I get very excited about because let's be honest, good makeup day starts with good base. I've tried quite a few Dior foundations and had really good experience with them (recently Dior Forever Undercover Foundation -review) so when I heard the brand is bringing a new Backstage collection which includes a foundation I couldn't wait to get my hands on it and I bought it from the Dior website as soon as it was released on there.
I've used the Backstage Face and Body Foundation every day for over a week and I thought I will share with you my thoughts on it as it's just been released on other websites and in stores as well, so it's even easier to get hold of.

Premium designer lipsticks - are they worth the high price tag?

Do you remember the old blogging days when writing a 'review' of your new lipstick was totally acceptable and exciting? I do and I miss it, not necessary the 'one lipstick' reviews but blogging that was simpler and different, it felt more personal and it was like talking to your friend about your latest lipstick love (or whatever other beauty product). Nowadays blogs are much more curated, blog posts more complex, photos Vogue-worthy and while it's all aspirational and inspirational it can take the simple joy of writing about your new lipstick away.
If you're one of my regular readers (whom I massively appreciate) you might have noticed that I've not been posting much in the last few months. Yes, I do have less time because of work and kids are not exactly being less demanding (LOL!) but the truth is I have lost my love for blogging. For many months I felt the pressure of creating content that can be on par with some other very successful bloggers but I'm not a writer, I'm not a great photographer, I'm just a girl (well, grown up woman really!) who wants to talk about a lipstick and don't feel like there has to be some big meaning behind my post. At the end of the day it's just beauty products, they are not exactly needed in our life, do they? They're here to give us joy, maybe boost our confidence, help us look better, they're almost like grown up toys. So instead of worrying if my idea for a post is good enough, if I have enough products to create a content that will get lots of views, I'm just taking my blog back to basics and write whatever tickle my fancy and hopefully that will re-store my love for blogging and keep my wonderful readers still interested.
