Zoella Beauty | Blissful Mistful Fragranced Body Mist

Hey everyone.
This week I popped into Superdrug to buy a new fragrance.
I used to wear 'Love Etc.' by the Body Shop but they discontinued this line and I finished my last bottle of the 'Love Etc.' perfume last week.
So I decided to have a very long nosy around Superdrug to find a new fragrance.

I tried Marc Jacobs 'Daisy' (way too expensive for me but it smells amazing!) and Britney Spears 'Fantasy' which I also really liked.  But I was mostly excited about trying Zoe Suggs body mist from her 'Zoella Beauty' range and I fell in love with the scent, so that's what I decided to buy.

Just in case anyone doesn't know Zoe is a beauty blogger and vlogger and recently launched her own beauty line which I've been really excited to try out.

I really love this scent, it's quite summery but I love how it's a strong scent but not overpowering. 
I also love the design on the bottle, I think it's really pretty and I love the polka dots on the back of the bottle.
The only issue is that I feel the scent doesn't last for very long but apart from that I don't have any complaints about it as a product.

If you want to buy any of Zoe's products you can get them from Superdrug here or Feel Unique here.

Holiday Photos & Blog Updates

Hello everyone!

I recently went away for a few days to visit some family and friends and thought I'd tell you a little about it and share some of my photos as well (this post is pretty much just going to be photos).

We went for a walk at the beach and got to see some really amazing sunsets.  But unfortunately my camera battery ran out so I only got one photo (that's not very good) of the sunset.

I went to Wagamamas for the first time, which I really enjoyed and I'd love to go back soon - the food there is so amazing!

While I was away I got to meet up with my friend Esmee (who runs one of my favourite blogs: Ezzlepops.  I highly recommend you all having a nosy around her blog).  We went shopping, had lunch at Pizza Hut and had lots of really lovely chats.

(As you can see I forgot to take photos until we were halfway through our pizza!)


As per usual, I spent way too much time in both HMV and Waterstones.  I got 3 new books:
Where She Went by Gayle Foreman (which I've read already and loved)
Afterworlds by Scott Westerfield (which I've started reading and so far I really like it)
Love Letters To The Dead by Ava Dellaira.

I also got my first Fall Out Boy album which is 'Folie à Deux'.  I've listened to the album already but I won't talk about it in detail because I'm going to write an album dissection post for it.  All I will tell you is that my first impressions of 'Folie à Deux' are good but I need to listen to it a bit more before I write about it.

Some more news is that the lovely Sneha Kadaba is running a series of posts here on my blog about the basics of makeup, you can check out the first post here.
I'm also putting together an Autumn photography post for Sneha's blog which I should hopefully have completed soon and I'll let you all know when it's up on Sneha's blog.

Another quick bit of information for you all is that I'm very busy at the moment between my job and college work, so I'm sorry if I'm a little delayed in getting posts to you all.

I hope you're all doing okay, I know that this time of year can be quite stressful for those of you applying for university and college. 

I'll see you all next week with my October Playlist.
