Mojave ghost byredo hair mist hula beauty liquid lipstick

This month I’ve developed a few new firm favourites in foundation and fragrance. After a couple of months of testing all these recent purchases (and Christmas gifts) I wanted to shout out about a few just in case you were considering a little splurge…

In years gone by a floral focused scent was rarely my poison of choice. I preferred my floral notes laced with pink pepper and sitting comfortably under a fruiter note to make the perfect powdery elixir.

That being said! The recent Chelsea Flower Show in London inspired me to pull out my collectibles of flower focused fragrances…

fresh candles sugar lemon and grapefruit

{Fresh candles – scented citrus}

It’s a hard pill to swallow when you’re saying goodbye to your beloved fig and pine home fragrances but I know they don’t have place in the home on a hot summer’s day. If you saw my holiday fragrance piece you’ll know I’m a total candle snob and skincare pros, Fresh have caught my attention with their upcoming candle releases.

It’s not normally the fragrant playground I tend to spend my time in but I’ll admit it, I’ve started dabbling a little a few citrus notes…

Hesperides Grapefruit fresh candle

{Fresh – Hesperides Grapefruit}

These candles are perfect for the next time you plan to have a few bros over for a barbecue. Hesperides Grapefruit is a bright, invigorating scent that fills your home with notes that scream ‘clean’. If I had to pick one it’d be this baby.

Fresh lemon

{Fresh – Sugar Lemon}

The Sugar Lemon candle is essentially lemonade in wax form. It’s delicious and sweet but not overbearing. Ideal for scorching days, non?

This combination of lemon sprinkled with sugar is best served with a mojito in hand and your feet up as your sit in your balcony.

You can find these beauties on Sephora.com come July for $65 a pop.

Smell the roses

Smell the roses

{Rendition of roses}

About a year ago I decided that the scent of rose was totally ‘cool’ and no longer reserved for grandma’s hand soap and talc. Rose in colour, rose in flavour, rose in scent. So many new beauty products were adopting the scent and I embrace it with open arms.

I recently purchased the Fresh Rose Floral Toner and that’s what set me off back in to the rose rhythm. An alcohol-free toner that isn’t an effort of adding an ‘extra step’ to your skincare routine. The spray pump allows for a refreshing, simple application. I love using this softly scented product to set my makeup when I’m done, it’s such a pretty touch.

{Rose care for your lips}

Take Dior’s Creme De Rose Smoothing Lip Balm, a silky seduction of rose-scented care for your pout. Hydrating and protecting with an SPF 10, this pretty sits beautifully on my desk.

{Tools of rose}

Bdellium brushes are impressive in their own right but the Pink Bamboo extension is for the princess in you. I adore this 975 Mixed powder brush for sweeping on my Les Beige or Ambient Lighting powder on.

dior darling polish

{Rose on your tips}

The quality of Dior polishes blew it out of the water in 2013 and the Darling addition to their permanent collection is the perfect hue of a true, rosey pink for your tips.

diptyque rose candle

{Your personal rose}

If anyone is going to achieve the perfect, rose scent, it’ll be Diptyque. A soothing rendition of the classic flower, this roses candle is the best to be burning while you work.

chloe roses de chloe

{The most romantic rose}

I fell in love with this fragrance from the initial spray to the delicate dry-down. Roses de Chloe is a luminous blend of fresh cut roses, bergamot, rose essence, magnolia accord, white musk and amber.

It’s incredibly romantic and perfect for date nights. You couldn’t be more feminine wearing this if you tried.
