Boss Orange for Women

Yep it is that epic that I have dedicated a WHOLE blog post to it.

When this came out a while back (I think 2009) I was like "nice advert" and kind of moved on! I thought it would not be anything special or anything I would like.

But, a few weeks ago I found out that I was very wrong, I sniffed this in Boots and I was like WOW this stuff smells sooo good!!! And after a spur of the moment online shopping  trip, I bought it.

Hugo Boss described 'Boss Orange Women' as:
'A warm, complex and inviting fragrance that combines the uniquely liberating notes of Crisp Apple, White Flowers and, at its very soul, Vanilla and Sandalwood. They fuse to create a relaxed, personal scent you can wear with passion.'

And I couldn't agree with you more Hugo Boss ;) The smell is quite fresh and believe it or not, it has a hint of orange, just a light and little fruity fragrance. I personally have not smelt anything like this. When it dries, it is slightly more floral and I would use it as a casual perfume, so it will be frequently used during the day time. 

The scent is not overpowering and because it is EDT it is lighter. I mostly prefer EDP as it does last longer and has a stronger scent. This perfume only comes in EDT.

Arrgghh wish I could give you guys a cyber smell of it!!! 

In terms of packaging, I am not really fussed, but this bottle is beautiful. So sleek and unique, it does look good on my vanity area. :)

I hope you guys go out and try this before you buy it. As with any perfume, it smells slightly different and 'sits' differently on each person. Some people don't like this but everyone has different tastes, especially when it comes to perfume.

I bought mine from Cheap Smells here, a 75ml size and was £37.75. 

I hope you guys have a wonderful Christmas and get everything you want ;)

Winter Shopping! (any excuse to shop!)

Winter is my favourite time of year, I really do wish I was a winter baby! I love the cold and being snuggly and hot chocolate before bed (yep I got a cup sitting next to me! Ha!)

I went to the Stratford City Westfield properly for the first time on Wednesday. (By properly I mean I did some mega shopping!)

So, onto some of the things I got...

  •  winter jacket, £44.99 Link (this link shows the black colour, I got the khaki one! And its cheaper now! DAMN IT!)
Well, this is actually a parka and I wanted something warm and comfortable. I found this baby in New Look and my bestie was like "you are not getting any black clothing, EVERYTHING you wear is black", which I hate her for saying but it is true, I love black, it is such a sleek colour! I guess I have to step out of my comfort zone sometimes, so I got the khaki version! *brave*

  • two scarves, £5ish each

I also got these scarves from New Look because they are really nice, they are not wool, but they look like wool and they are not itchy like some scarves, which is not nice. I got the grey one and I loved it sooo much I went and got the tan colour one to match one of my bags. For this price you definitely can't go wrong and it does keep me warm. The weather is around 4 degrees celsius, which is really cold, but I love it! ;)

    Top- Tan
    Bottom- Grey

    • a bag, £14.99

    I needed a black bag, so while I was in New Look, I picked up this beauty. It looks like leather but it isn't (sneaky!) and it is HUGE inside, even though it looks smallish, I can practically fit everything I need (my whole room sometimes!) You guys should definitely have a look. I am going to get another, that is how much I heart it.

    Beauty :)

    I also got a few pairs of skinny jeans from Dorothy Perkins. Some of their jeans are actually quite nice. I just got basic blue ones, nothing fancy! :)

    Random lovin'...

    Music wise I am loving Rihanna's album and Drake's album, seriously good stuff. I have to try and control myself to not sing aloud on the train. And I am loving 'It will rain' by Bruno Mars! It is constantly on replay! :) His voice is incredible, so soft and just ahhhh. 

    Also, the geek inside me has to recommend watching BBC's 'Frozen Planet', if you haven't already watched it. Its AMAZING! It's about nature and the natural behaviours of animals. I am wowed by how amazing the world actually is. It is finishing this week, but you can catch it on BBC iplayer. 

    Happy December btw! How is your winter shopping going?
