Zara Joyful Tuberose Perfume Review

Hi everyone,

If I am honest, before receiving this perfume as a gift for my birthday, I had never really given much consideration to Zara perfumes. I knew that they had a range but there isn't a Zara in my local city centre so I don't shop there often and hadn't smelt any of them. Apparently I am way behind on this and as I opened my present, my friend went on to explain how nice the Zara perfumes are and she thought that Joyful Tubrose in particular would be right up my street :)


This perfume is made up of notes of blackcurrent, grapefruit, lemon, tangerine, musk, sandlewood and vanilla to give it a fruity but also floral scent. I love the musk that is added which in my opinion makes it feel more grown up and sophisticated and just tones down the fruity aspects. The packaging is simple but cute and I have certainly seen worse!

When I looked on the website and saw that this perfume is only £9.99 for 100ml I was so shocked. I honestly thought it would be so much more as the scent is just really nice and it smells expensive (if that's even possible). If I didn't know that this perfume was from Zara, I would have guessed that it was made by Chloe or Dior or definitely a higher end brand. With the price point being so reasonable, I have found that this has made a great every day perfume to wear at work and for those times when I don't want to reach for the more expensive fragrances in my collection that I like to save for more special occasions.

If you haven't checked out the Zara perfume range than I would definitely recommend tracking them down next time you head out shopping. For the price you really can't go wrong and I will be repurchasing this perfume once it has run out without question.

Have you tried this perfume or any of the other Zara ones? What did you think of them?

Nail Polish Collection - Pale Pinks

Hi everyone, 

Today I am back with the next post in my nail polish collection series. Pink nail polishes have to be my favourites and because of that I have split the pinks into pale shades and brighter shades which will be up on my blog in the next few weeks. Now spring has arrived I have been reaching for pastel colours a lot more for my nails and the darker options are slowly being pushed to the back of the drawer. In writing this post I have also come across some polishes which I had completely forgotten about so I will definitely be using them again over spring and summer :)

Avon Speed Dry in ASAP Pink and Avon Nailwear Pro in Pastel Pink
Avon Nailwear Pro in Pink Creme and Cotton Candy
Essie Angel Food and Pink Princess
Essie Pink Diamond and Jessica Samba Parade
Barry M Gelly in Dragon Fruit and Rose Hip
Sinful Colours Pink Forever and Glass Pink
Tanya Burr Mini Marshmallows and Frosting Cupcakes

It was so difficult to photograph some of the paler colours as the camera just wouldn't pick them up so I hope they turned out OK. I think my favourite nail polish out of these is Essie Princess Pink as it is just a really pretty, very girly shade. The Avon polish in ASAP Pink is one of the ones which I had forgotten about though and it looks like such a lovely shade. I can't believe how little I have worn it and will definitely be using it again very soon.

Do you wear a lot of pale pink on your nails? Which is your favourite shade?

Beauty Wish List March 2017

http://www.polyvore.com/cgi/set?id=218870517
Hi everyone,

I have been trying to be so good recently and not buying any new products until I have used up the ones that I already have. My makeup stash and skincare collection was just getting out of control and I was wasting too many of the products I was buying so I decided it was time to make a change. Having said that, this has meant that my wish list has built up to be quite extensive as there are so many products that I have got my eye on at the moment. Here are a few of the ones which I have been really tempted to buy recently :)


As you can see, some are more affordable than others so hopefully I will get round to trying those sooner rather than later. As for the rest, it may be a case of window shopping for now but you never know, they may just make their way into my collection sooner than I think :)

Have you tried any of the products I have mentioned? What did you think of them?

Thanks for reading,

Hannah xx
