New Things

Thursday, 3 January 2013


I'm slowly building my fragrance collection and it seems like I've formed a pattern when it comes to buying them. I buy one at the beginning of the year and wear it all year round, love it then move on to a new one the following year. Last year was Miss Cherie (Dior), the year before was Coco Mademoiselle (Chanel), and this year it's Chance (Chanel), a sensual scent with subtle flowery notes. I'm in love with it.

I thought I'd also share my most recent purchases. I haven't really gone all crazy in the sales this time around, but I did find a few cute things, like this white v-neck jumper from H&M. 
The necklaces are from Topshop. I especially love the "Earth" piece. It's part of a collection designed for the different star signs, "Earth" being for Taurus, Capricorn and Virgo.
I'm a Capricorn by the way. :)

Chance (Chanel) 50ml, £64.50
Jumper (H&M), £12.99
Cross Necklace (Topshop), £8.50
Earth Necklace (Topshop), £6.50

Have you been shopping lately?

Usually I'm not a fan of v-neck tops/jumpers however this particular one is definitely an exception. The jumper would be great for the coming Spring and the necklaces are very versatile! Great finds.

Chanel Chance is one of my fave fragrances, although Eau Fraiche is my fave out of the collection

Kae-Toya Lee-Bramble said...

If you like Chance you should try Romance by Ralph Lauren. It has that light, fresh scent and it lasts a long time. I got the CoCo Madamoiselle EDP as a birthday gift. it is lovely but I think it may be a bit much for everyday. So I am thinking about getting the EDT to carry around in my handbag. I saw you the other day in NANDO's in Nottingham, I didn't come over though since you were eating.
