Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Midnight Eau de Parfum Review

Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Midnight

Gifted press sample featured and Ad affiliate links used - It was a very exciting day when the postman arrived at my door with the brand new Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Midnight. All of this lovely early spring weather (finally, hello!) is getting me in the mood for beaches, holidays, eating outside and just generally enjoying the lighter evenings. Trips away always make me think about my favourite scents and if you're a long time Emtalks reader you'll know, one of my absolute all time favourite fragrances is the original Flowerbomb by Viktor & Rolf. There are a few scents I've grown up with, Juicy Couture being one of them, Marc Jacobs Daisy of course and Flowerbomb being another! It only felt right then to review the brand new Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Midnight fragrance today, a sensual take on an old favourite of mine but something that's quickly become a new favourite. Let's discuss.

Mothers Day Gift Ideas & What To Do On Mothers Day

Leeds uni graduation post

Ad affiliate links used - She carried me for 9 months, hers was the first face I saw when I came in to the world and the first hand I held to guide me through life and she’s provided my brother and I with the most solid relationship and the greatest love story on earth. I'm sure most of you are aware that my Mum is literally everything to me, we have the closest bond and I am so grateful to have such a powerful, strong, incredible Mumma. If I could choose family, I'd choose my Mum, brother and grandparents a million times over. I got really lucky with them. It’s Mother’s Day on Sunday 31st March and while we try and show Mumma Shel lots of love every day of the year, just like most Mums she is very worthy of this special day being dedicated to her each year so that we can go the extra mile. Of course, she’s a typical selfless Mama and doesn’t see it that way. Every year she says the same thing ‘don’t think you have to spend lots of money on me for Mother’s Day. I’ve got all I need with you two'... Well hard luck Mama because we’re gonna ignore you and spoil you anyway haha. Open up this blog post for lots of Mother's Day gift ideas and things you can do with your Mum or loved ones/Mother figure this Mother's Day. Whilst Mother's Day is called 'Mother's Day' traditionally, it goes without saying that you can do these things with anyone you love, I always spoil my Nanna on Mother's Day.

Something I shout about from the rooftops? My love for food. Em and brunch, it’s an endless love affair. I don’t really know when ‘brunch’ became a thing, but it’s food, so I’ll take it. I’ve always been a massive breakfast lover so I guess it’s only right that I love brunch too. Let's be honest, breakfast and brunch are basically the same thing, it just means those delicious breakfasty dishes are available for a longer period and I am so down for that. It’s fair to say there are some exceptional brunch places in London so today I thought I’d (finally) write up a blog post with my current favourite go to places for Instagrammable brunch in London. These places are definitely the most Instagrammable brunch places in London too, if that's your thing. Bear in mind, I don’t like places that are Instagrammable but don’t do good food, I’d much rather go somewhere ‘non insta worthy’ with genuinely good food so all of these places are both insta-worthy AND serve up epic brunch. If you could get a degree in brunch, I'd get a first class honours no doubt about it. I'm deliberately mentioning places I've visited many times on my London brunch guide so they definitely get my approval and aren't just one hit wonders. I take brunch very seriously. Don't forget to read my ultimate guide of the best places to eat in London.

Fresh Soy Face Cleanser Review

Fresh soy face cleanser review

Gifted press products featured and Ad affiliate links used (have rebought myself many times) - Hey everyone, today, a beauty review hooray! One of the really cool parts of my job is getting the opportunity to try different skin products and I will always share my thoughts with you when I come across something that I truly adore. I mix up my skincare a lot, who doesn't? Particularly in my job, I like to try as much new skincare as possible but, I've always got my holy grail favourites. For well over two years I’ve been grabbing my Fresh Soy Face Wash (my Mum has too) and I thought it was about time I told you all about it. I use other cleansers too (hello Elemis Cleansing Balm, Clinique Take Off The Day, Neutrogena Hydroboost - the list goes on, just a few of my faves over the last year) as I usually do a double cleanse and do mix up my cleansers depending on my skins needs/my effort levels in cleansing but I felt I needed to write a standalone review of Fresh Soy Cleanser today as it's one I always go back to.

healthy pancakes

Ad affiliate links used -Hello hello! I just love this time of year, the start of the year (although, how is it March already?!) thinking of new goals, new beginnings and finally the weather is getting a little bit nicer too.  I love the thought of spring being just around the corner and I’m particularly looking forward to it this year following my move to London late last year.  I adore nothing more than early mornings that are light and as I am doing lots of walking (to both save travel costs and to keep my fitness up) I literally can’t wait until it’s light at the crack of dawn! Talking about mornings, I’ve been brought up to believe that I should never, ever start the day on an empty stomach (which is really good because I always wake up starving!).  I know many of you find my recipe blog posts helpful so I thought I’d use this post to share three of my favourite breakfast recipes.  They’re healthy and nutritious and also really easy to pull together.  I’m not one for measuring and spending ages messing about so you will always find what I cook easy peasy. Let's go!
