2015/01/img_5337.jpg A: I thought it was time to share my perfume collection with you, it’s something I use everyday and it’s taken me a while to put together but I never think of mentioning it on here – so now I’ve got it organised here goes, in no particular order…

Chanel No. 5: a classic; rich, deep musk with iconic floral undertones

Chanel Coco: a fresh version of the classic

Marc Jacobs Lola: floral and summery, perfect for warm evenings

Marc Jacobs Daisy: this was my first Marc Jacobs scent, it’s fresh and sunny and warm. So sad it’s nearly finished!

Mark Jacobs Honey: fruity and fresh, and you really can smell the honey!

Jimmy Choo Original: tea rose and tiger orchid give this perfume such a beautiful sultry scent, another one I have loved using which is almost empty!

Jimmy Choo Flash: with strawberry and tangerine scents, this was a perfume I used when I went on holiday to Jamiaca so it now reminds me of the most amazing holiday ever – one of my favourite perfumes

Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh: a summer edition of the original, it has a similar scent but is slightly fresher and better for Spring

What’re you’re favourite perfumes? Have you tried any of these, or do you have any recommendations? #twolittleowls

A Very Lucky Annie number 2!

A: You can see the first part of this post here, as Chloe and I were both super spoilt over the Christmas period, we decided to split up our ‘haul’ posts into a few separate ones – so here’s my second post! We are in no way bragging about the gifts we have received, we just love reading these kinds of posts on other blogs so thought we would share ours with your lovely readers.

I got a really lovely selection of beauty products, some new nail varnishes – Barry M, a Sally Hansen and an Essie, all of which I will be reviewing in the future so keep following! My cousin got me some gorgeous Bare Minerals lip glosses too, which I have had my eye on for a while!
Chloe got me the Zoella Soak Opera which I have been after testing out for ages, and she also got me the Holly Go Lightly bath bomb from Lush as well as the most beautiful highlighter/blush in the world from I ❤️ Make Up. She knows me so well! Lastly in the ‘beauty’ section, my brother and sister-in-law got me the Chanel No.5 body lotion, something I have been lusting after since I tested out my Mum’s a few months ago (see here for my review!) so I was super excited to receive this.

Onto jewellery, my parents got me these beautiful handmade glass earrings from a craft market in Tenerife. And my boyfriend did very well indeed as he got me these pearls, which are beyond precious. I love them so much and can’t wait to wear them and I will treasure them for the rest of my life.

An AMAZING handbag/backpack from my brother and sister-in-law. I start a new job in January and I’m so excited to pack this up and use it. I’m very particular about bags but this one is perfect, I cannot wait to wear it! It’s Jane Shilton, but it came from TK Maxx – I’m not at all bothered by brands, I love this purely because it’s so practical/patent blue with massive gold fastenings!

We have two British Blues and because I’m a crazy cat lady I tend to get a lot of cat related gifts. I love this watch so much, my friend Spen bought me it and it’s hideous/amazing at the same time. I also got this book, and the cat on the front cover look exactly like my cats Bill and Ted!

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/178/63282436/files/2014/12/img_5032.jpg Another cat related present, but it is so very true ❤️.

We also get a lot of campervan related gifts because we have a campervan! This amazing crocheted bag is from my mum and was made by my auntie, she is a genius when it comes to knitting and crocheting – it’s amazing isn’t it!! A lovely campervan moneybox too, to help us save our pennies for how holidays. And a super cute campervan case from my beautiful cousin, which I will be using as a pencil case for my new job!

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/178/63282436/files/2014/12/img_5060.jpgAnd lastly for now, a beautiful faux fur leopard print coat from my lovely aunt and uncle. I CANNOT get enough of this, it’s from Red Herring and feels beautiful to wear. I can guarantee it’ll be in a lot of ootds! An amazing tartan scarf which was actually featured in my Christmas wishlist – well done to my cousin on this one! It’s from ASOS and it’s so cosy! I don’t even care that they totally don’t match, I’m more than happy to wear them at the same time. It’s normal to want to wear all of your Christmas presents at once isn’t it? And finally, these gorgeous Cath Kidston earrings with emerald green colour stones. They are so special, I’ve been wearing them every day since Christmas 🙂

Sorry for the super long post guys, but I hope you enjoyed reading and being nosey! What did you get for Christmas? #twolittleowlsblog

Chanel No.5 L’Emulsion Corps – The Body Lotion

image1 image

“Floral-aldehydic, a bouquet of abstract flowers with an indefinable femininity”

C & A: Firstly, let’s just all take a few minutes to bask in the glory of this product. The packaging is b-e-a-utiful and so luxurious. We lovely every inch of it, right down to the gold logo on the lid.

This has the iconic No. 5 scent, which has and will go down in history for years to come. We know it’s super pricey, but it’s totally worth it. This one was bought from our local department store for £42, and Debenhams sell it for the same price (here).

A: I think that everyone deserves a splurge and this would definitely be my choice. The scent is lovely, and lighter than the eau de parfum version – which can be a little heavy for every day use. Although I perhaps wouldn’t use this for everyday outings like work and boring stuff, I would use it for both casual and more special evenings and days out. The formula is so silky and smooth and hydrtaes your skin beautifully, and lasts all day – meaning the lovely floral aroma stays with you too. It is an incredibly feminine scent which is perfect for those summer evenings. I think that this is worth the hefty price tag because it makes you feel special, and after all – who doesn’t need a bit of Chanel in their life?

C: I can’t describe this product any better than Annie did… it’s just amazing. Chanel (and the price tag) are sheer luxury and this is definitely a special occasion product but I just love it! You only need a tiny amount of product for silky smooth, heavenly scented skin that is so sophisticated I feel like I shouldn’t really be allowed near the bottle. This is definitely getting added to my Christmas list… sorry parents!
