Mavala Mini Nail Polish in Waikiki Orange

Does anyone else find that they never finish a full sized coloured nail polish? I am always having to chuck away dry or gloupy nail polishes that look as though they have barely been used! This is why I am loving mini nail polishes at the moment, like this Mavala 5ml mini, as they are the perfect size and are great for when you are travelling.
Mavala Waikiki Orange is a bright coral colour, that gives me the summer feeling. This is the kind of colour that would look great with a tan, making it perfect for this time of year. At £4.75 they are more expensive than drugstore polishes, but they are Formaldehyde free and apply very nicely. Waikiki Orange is opaque after one coat and is long lasting.

My First High End Beauty Purchase

When I first started wearing makeup I purchased all my makeup from Boots and Superdrug, I did not venture into luxurious makeup unless I raided my mothers makeup bag. That was until I was on holiday in America and I had a makeover at the Clarins counter. I purchased a base, a foundation and a lipgloss, all of which I used religiously after.

Last weekend I was in the House of Fraser beauty hall and came across two of the products, which I haven't repurchased since that day.  The Instant Light Radiance Boosting Complexion Base in 01 (Rose) which illuminates and corrects your skin tone and the Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector in 01 (Rose) which is my absolute favourite natural lip gloss. he scent take me back to that day,

The Perfect Spring Perfume: Burberry Weekend

I have never been one to have a different perfume for each season, however since smelling Burberry Weekend it has become my scent for spring. As mentioned in my previous perfume post, I usually go for more of a warm musky scent, however this is yet another floral fragrance that I am loving - my tastes are definitely changing!

Burberry Weekend is described as a relaxing country style perfume. Launched all the way back in 1997, this fragrance contains top notes of tangerine, red cyclamen and blue hyacinth. Middle notes of wild rose, peach flower and iris and base notes of musk, sandalwood and cederwood. This combination of fruits, florals and woods creates a floral powdery scent that I cannot get enough of, it is the perfect relaxing day time scent.

The scent is quite strong, you only need one or two sprays, and it is very long lasting, leaving me feeling fresh throughout the day.  The packaging is just beautiful, with the iconic check trim and hand written logo. At £29.99 for 100ml, this perfume is great value and will keep you going for a while!

What is your favourite Spring time scent?
