Perfume and the perfect makeup bag?

Have you ever thought about your perfect makeup bag? I mean your ideal, fantasy makeup which you could include whatever you wanted. I have, over and over again, and every time a new makeup product or brand ( :::cough::: ahem, burberry) it ends up in there too. Below, are my two ideal, perfect makeup bags. The first is by Celine (filled with Dior nail polish, YSL lipstick, Laura Mercier Body Lotions and Dior Perfume) and the second is by Longchamp (filled with chanel, clarins, dior, tom ford and nars).

I also wanted to share with you all my current perfumes that I'm lusting after. I've been making my way through sample bottles of these all week...and want them all. Preferably now.

1) Love Chloe

2) Miss Dior

3) Coco Mademoiselle (and Diptyque in the background)

What perfumes are you lusting over? and what brands would you include in your perfect makeup bag? x

The Perfect Christmas Gift (In my opinion).

Unfortunately, I think 3 days before Christmas is a little late to add this one to the list...but for those of you on a late shopping frenzy before Christmas, or those of you looking to buy a little treat for yourself...this would be my suggestion. Meet the Clarisonic Mia, the little baby....or perhaps cousin...of the original Clarisonic. 

It comes in a massive range of colours, and limited edition patterns...but my personal favourite one is the lavender. Plus, it matches with some of my favorite skincare products from Jurlique.

I am yet to jump upon the Clarisonic bandwagon, purely because of the £120 price point. Although I really think its about time I did now! I hear so many people raving about it. What are your opinions on the clarisonic??

The Clarisonic Mia in Lavender is available for £120 at Space N.K.

Hope you are all having a lovely day! x

Clarins Cleansing Milk. Possibly the best?

It's official. This stuff is the best. I have been using Clarins cleansing milk every morning for a week now and have already fallen head over heels with this miracle product.

Never before have I used a milk cleanser, because I always thought it would be kind of..messy. I didn't like the idea of it running off my face and getting in my hair, but I didn't know cleansing milks were actually this easy to use. I use this by patting it on the face with my fingertips, and then massaging it in. Then I take a cotton pad, dampen it with warm water and gently wipe off the cleanser. Then I soak a cotton pad in toner and run that over the whole face to make sure everything is off. Then I top the whole routine off with a spritz of Avene Eau Thermal water.

The cleanser itself is a light, sky blue lotion. It smells incredible. They say it contains "Apline herbs". I don't know about you, but that means nothing to me, so I'll tell you what clarins say:

"Natural Plant Extracts help to maintain the skin's natural pH balance and protective cutaneous flora. Plus a combination of Alpine Herbs, Chinese Violet Orchid, Sweet Almond, Mallow, Linseed and Vitamins A and E cleanse, soften, moisturise, soothe and maintain suppleness."

There you go. I really couldn't have said it better myself. No, really..I couldn't have.

My skin tone has improved, it seems a lot more even and my skin feels softer and plumper. The cleansing milks seem to be more hydrating on the skin than water cleansers, because the water evaporates off the skin, leaving it feel a bit parched. Overall this will be perfect for the mornings, as I don't have to splash my face with cold water like I would if i used a foam or a gel cleanser. The price point isn't terrible either.

Clarins Cleansing milk is £15.30 for 200ml at
