Perfume: Flora by Gucci

One of my favourite ever perfumes

I got this as a gift last year and was slightly sceptical as I haven't bought any Gucci perfumes since my high school Gucci Rush days! And that was only to be cool :)

But I am so glad I have been introduced to this perfume as it has become one of my all time favourites!

It is such a girly fragrance that last's all day!

This is important to me as I sometimes don't have a handbag big enough on a night out to fit everything in!

Perfect for any fashionista!

And the packaging is gorgeous too! Especially the inside of the box which has a cute floral print ...

Apparently this print has taken inspiration from a silk scarf that was designed by Princess Grace in 1966! History, Fashion and a gorgeous fragrance all in one box! Lovely! :)

Of course this a floral fragrance but for the more technical here is what Debenham's say... 

  • Top Notes: Neroli and Mandarin Oil Sweet, tender notes reminiscent of childhood memories.

  • Middle Note: Orange Blossom Opulent, white floral note at the heart of the fragrance.

  • Base Notes: Tuberose and Jasmine White,

    • floral notes enhancing the Orange Blossom

    Have Flora by Gucci? What do you think?

    Lots of love

    The Diary of a Weight Watcher....

    Well, I began my Weight Watchers journey once again last week to shift a few pounds before Summer.

    I generally do quite well with eating healthy although I am a big chocolate lover and this is where I also pile on the pounds.... Firstly I am not obese or largely over weight, but I think weight is a very personal issue and you know when you are carrying a few extra pounds that you don't want to be carrying! 

    I began to feel uncomfortable again (I did lose weight with Weight Watchers 2 years ago) and so to my nearest meeting I went, and joined.

    I hope you don't mind me sharing this with all of you... maybe you are on a weight loss journey too?

    Now today is my first weigh in since joining last Wednesday and according to weight watchers if you follow their  plan you can expect to lose between 1 and 2lb per week! A healthy and steady way to lose weight without depriving yourself. This is the main  thing I love about weight watchers, you can eat what you want, just in moderation and sensible choices.

    So... I have just got back from my first weigh in and have lost....(drum roll...) 5lb !
    So delighted! 
    Although I am presuming this is just my body adjusting to my change of eating and I will only lose 1-2lb in other weeks.

    Happy Happy Happy!!! :)

    I will be reporting back every week so you can follow my progress and hopefully my success!!

    Lots of Love 


    Dreams of Summer and holidays....

    That's right I am thinking of Summer already and we have only just arrived in Spring! 

    I don't think I am the only one though, hot sunny weather, BBQ's pool parties..... Well we can dream can't we... Let's hope we have at least one sunny week this Summer! :)

    I am a lover of planning ahead so......

    I have spotted this gorgeous bikini on River Island's website...

    It is totally channelling the Nautical theme PLUS its strapless so no strap tanning line! PERFECT! :)
    Best keep on with my diet so I can squeeze myself into one of these for Summer!

    Do you prefer a bikini or a swimsuit?

    Lots of Love

    ELF Primers

    I did an ELF Haul of products a few weeks ago, but have yet to review in detail so here goes!...


    I bought ELF Mineral Face primer from the ELF Studio range.

    I loved the packaging on this product it was so sturdy and expensive looking!
    The product inside was great too! A clear solution that glided on didn't clump or go patchy, went on evenly and left a peachy soft base for foundation!And a little goes a long way! LOVE THIS!

    ALTHOUGH I ran out so fast! I was gutted! 
    The primer lasted me about 2 weeks and this wasn't applying it everyday either and with just one pump per application... You cannot see the product through the bottle so you have no idea when it is going to run out!

    At £6.00 I thought what a great price for a great primer, although then I ran out so fast I have now reconsidered buying again as there are plenty more primers out there that aren't going to run out mid way through putting your make up on!!

    for the packaging 10/10
    for the product 9/10
    Overall 7/10 (the amount really knocked the scored down here)

    Have you had the same experience with ELF mineral primer?

    ELF Eyelid Primer

    Similar story here folks ! SMALL SMALL quantities :(
    Great product however and yes of course for the price.... (£1.50)
    I can't expect van loads of primer can I? Although I must say this has lasted  longer than the mineral face primer!

    Lovely consistency to this eyelid primer, slightly tinted but once blended in you cannot tell it is there at all. I think this helps give a better base however, to allow the true colour of the eye shadow to come through and really pop!

    Have you tried any of ELF's Primers?

    Lots of Love 

    A Girl can dream can't she?

    I am totally in love with this Alexander Wang bag!

    I know it has been out for a while but I can't contain my love for it any more! :)

    I best get saving with the price tag of £795!!!

    I love stud embellishments on everything!!! I have so many tops will embellished shoulders!

    Hopefully I will be in luck and the high street will make a similar one for me to buy!!!

    What do you think of embellishments on clothing and bags?

    Love Amanda

    Fashion- O.O.T.D

    Outfit of the day- Casual Uni day

    This is my outfit today for a morning at University :) 

    New look khaki military jacket
    Ready to go!
     I love the smartness of this jacket but it still being on trend!
    Stripe cropped jumper-New Look
    Grey vest-River Island
    Flared Jeans- River Island

    I love this lace and stud detail on this jumper!
     I love lace detailing and studs on clothes! Jazz's this jumper up! Without it I think it would be quite boring!
    Kick Flare Jeans and satin and velvet bow flats
     Kick flare Jeans this are my new love! I have wide hips and thighs so these kick flares balance me out perfectly!
    Velvet bow detail on my shoes!
     I love wearing flat shoes because I like to be comfy at uni and with being 5ft 7in I like to leave the 3 or 4 inch heels to nights out or special occasions because I am rather tall with them on!!
    Simple make up, simple hair and specs!
     I like to alternate with my glasses and contact lenses, but mainly it depends on how much time I have in the morning!
    My turquoise ring

    without my specs :)
    A lot of people say I look completely different with glasses than I do without what do you think?

    Love Amanda xx
