REVLON Parfumerie Scented Nail Enamel

I saw these advertised recently in a magazine and couldn't resist checking them out. Although I have far too many nail varnishes for my liking I couldn't resist these. If I could I would buy the whole range, but for now I have just selected Watermint (sparkly pale green) and Surf Spray (blue) (both ideal for the summer), although I am very tempted by Autumn Spice. I bought these in Boots and they must be quite popular as there weren't many in stock. You don't really smell the scent when you take the lid off, it's only until application that you can smell it. Not only is the scent refreshing, but also long lasting plus you still get to enjoy the pretty colours. They are reasonably priced at £6.49 and you can purchase them here.

The Body Shop Fijan Water Lotus

I have just discovered this instore and it's perfect for summer! During the hot weather I have longed for The Body Shop to bring back my old favourite scent, Oceanis, but they have brought this out which is very similar! A light summery fragrance which smells like the sea, ideal for cooling you down on a hot day. You can buy the body butter, eau de toilette, fragrance mist, body lotion, shower gel and perfume oil here (layer these products and wear at the same time to keep the scent lingering for longer).

Orelia Costume Jewellery

I can't remember how I discovered the Orelia Costume Jewellery range but instantly fell in love with their collection. Beautiful, dainty and unique jewellery at affordable prices. I couldn't resist visiting their website and picking up two necklaces in the sale, the pretty Rose Quartz and Moon necklaces are my currently my top pick!

Steamcream Natural Moisturiser

For a long time I have been a huge fan of Steamcream, which not only acts as a facial moisturiser but can be used on the body and hands. The formula is wonderful, light and gentle enough on any kind of skin type (combination), the tins are available in many different designs and are very reasonably priced at around £12.95 to suit every budget!

They have also recently released a beautiful tin with an enhanced lavender scent called 'Always' - ideal for night time moisturising to help you relax before bedtime.

Lily Flame Candles

I am an avid candle fan but admittedly tend to stick to Yankee Candle ones. However, a recent trip to Waitrose compelled me to try the Lily-Flame range. I had seen one for Halloween last year but wasn't taken with the smell, but found Fairy Dust. Such a lovely light smell and handmade in Somerset! After buying this one, I found the amazing Parma Violets in another shop and it smelt wonderful! These are reasonably priced at around £8 and seem to last for a long time. I also like the reeds, but they are slightly out of my price range at around £19.99. If this range seems appealing to you, click here to go to their website!

Liz Earle NEW Bath & Body Range

I was pleased to receive a sample of the new Liz Earle NEW Bath & Body Range having always been a fan of Liz Earle products.

The line consists of Silky Body Lotion and Creamy Shower Nectar in three fragrances; Tiare & JasmineVanilla & Saffron and Bergamot & Ginger (the latter of which I tested).

As soon as the scent of the Bergamot & Ginger hit me I was immediately taken with it, so took advantage of the free postage offer (until 25th March, 2014) and ordered a bottle of it. It's ideal for when you are feeling tired and need a perk up.

I also received another sample of the Tiare & Jasmine body lotion, but wasn't as impressed with the scent, which is sweeter and lighter than the Bergamot & Ginger.

It's certainly a step away from their trademark LE scent, but definitely an indulgence, I would highly recommend checking these out.
