Victoria's Secret Strawberries & Champagne Body Mist

I want strawberries and champagne ...

I really do, but I'm not going to have any because I'm taking about 5 different types of meds at the moment, haha! Instead, how about a review of this delicious Victoria's Secret body mist? Let's get started!

These body mists are newly available in Slovenia, but you can always get them on, where they have tons of different scents. They also have the matching lotion, which I'm very tempted to get, as well as a body moisturizer that is a bit thicker in consistency. The body mist itself costs 12,40€.

The scent I have is Strawberries & Champagne. This is, in my opinion, the most unique scent of their body mists. It's very different, not fruity, not floral ... It's hard to pinpoint its scent, but it definitely does smell like champagne! It's also a little woody and a little fruity, but very different from the typical sweet fruity scents (think Fantasy, Katy Perry perfumes and so on). I personally LOVE it and so does Tilen, and I've gotten a lot of compliments while wearing this, but when people smell the bottle, they don't like it as much. I guess it's just one of those scents that work well on the skin.

I'm craving more of these perfumes, they really are lovely ... Hopefully I'll add a few more to my collection soon!
Do you own any Victoria's Secret scents?

What's in my Mailbox #1

Wouldn't you say it's time for a little haul?

I haven't been shopping in ages, but I got a few things for review lately which I wanted to show you. I feel obligated to say this post isn't meant for bragging, but if you're like me and hauls are your favourites, you'll know why I decided to hit publish! Also, I wanted to ask which items you're most interested in so I know what to test first!

You'll see no bodycare in this post as I've explained previously I have a skin condition at the moment (it's getting worse and worse), but no reason I shouldn't try new nail polish and skincare, right? Let's see what we have here ...

I got a few things from which I'm so excited about! The thing I cannot wait to use (but am forced to because I need to take photos of it first) is this Nanshy Marvel Sponge. You have no idea how badly I want to try it and it's been so annoying looking at it without using it. This is a super cool makeup blending sponge that has a flat side on one end, which makes blending really easy. You can get it here for around 7,5€.

I also got two Models Own nail polishes, one is from the new collection with metallic finish - gold, perfect - the other is a HyperGels one in an apricot colour. Couldn't find more 'me' colours, don't ya think? Will report back on these, as I'm planning on wearing one today - I have a bloggers event to go to. The gold polish is called Gold, apricot one is Long Beach Peach (d'aww).

Let's talk skincare. I was contacted by Bocassy, a new brand to me, who sent me a serum and a day cream. The Light Day Cream is very light indeed, smells wonderful and seems nicely moisutrizing - can't say more, as I've only used it a few times. My favourite is the Serum, though. Again, lovely scent, light, moisturizing, sinks into the skin very fast ... I also love the unique pump! Bocassy is available in Müller and you can also look at their website here.

Finally, the lovely Tajda at Oblak asked me if I'd like to try some new products. I have to say Oblak is one of my favourite companies to work with, they are really amazing - I can't forget the little gifts they send me, like for the first day of spring, Valentine's day ... So sweet! I requested the REN Micro Polish Cleanser, which looks really cool, and I liked the other cleanser I tried (from the Rosa Centifolia range), which had tiny beads, so I'm hoping this is great as well. Get it here for 29€.

A new brand to Oblak - and to me as well - is Corine de Farme. I got two products from them, the Micellar Solution as well as the Refreshing Orange Blossom Mist. So excited about these two, because they're affordable at 7€ and 5€, are big bottles and have up to 99% ingredients of natural origin. I just got them (literally 20 minutes ago) in the mail, so I can't say more than that just yet.

These are a few of my new things, but I'm planning another post like this if you don't mind, as I'm going to a Melvita event today. Incredibly excited about that because I adore Melvita. And I think I also have an incoming package from La Roche Posay ... Stick around if you'd like to see what I get.
What was the last thing you got in your mailbox?

Pink Pretties

I have a confession to make.

This post was supposed to be up in time for Valentine's day, but I promptly forgot about it. So I hope you'll forgive me and enjoy it nonetheless. Here is a selection of pink things and mini reviews on each one of them, I hope it helps!

Let's start with fragrance - I've picked two in different olfactory groups. First we have Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh (full review here), which is a very pretty, soft and gentle fruity floral. It's very inoffensive and a scent many will like, which is why I think it's perfect for a gift (would be great for Valentine's, huh? *smacks self*) You can get it here from 50€ upwards.

Next we have Agent Provocateur Eau Provocateur, which is similar to the original fragrance by this brand, but much lighter. It's a white floral with citrus notes, quite fresh, perfect for spring as well. I would recommend to both fans of the original fragrance as well as those who don't like it - it's light enough to be different, but has similar notes to the original.

How about a little haircare? This Schwarzkopf got2b Volumania Styling Powder is a favourite among bloggers, and I quite like it for second day hair. It's similar to a dry shampoo, but gives my hair a lot of hold as well, working like a hairspray. Very interesting product, and it's quite affordable at around 6€.

Skincare is up next! We have the Vichy Idéalia Serum, which I just adore. First of all, I've wanted this for absolute ages because of the packaging alone - isn't it just so pretty?! And I also love the product. It's very light, smells nice, illuminates my skin and is a great product for any skin type because it's so inoffensive. It moisturizes nicely and I especially like it under my makeup so my skin stays hydrated throughout the day. Available for a little over 30€ here.

Finally I have two products which should have been reviewed here ages ago! They're both from Cocoa Brown, which is actually a self-tanning brand. I was initially hesitant when they approached me asking if I wanted to review some products, since I don't self-tan. But they sent me a moisturizer and a body scrub and oh my stars, these two are amazing. Tough Stuff is a strawberry scented scrub which smells divine and is quite rough, but since my skin really needs the exfoliation, it works wonders. The moisturizer, Chocolate Whip, smells amazing again, this one is chocolate scented, buttery but not too thick, sinks into the skin fast and is so pleasant to use. I love these two products! You can find more information on the Cocoa Brown website.

Last, but not least, a little personal update.

I'm pretty ill at the moment and had to go to the local dermatologist urgently today. Apparently I have a disease (name was promptly forgotten by yours truly) that is similar to chicken pox, but it doesn't spread to others. This means I'll be covered in a rash that looks like severe burns over my whole body for at least 8 weeks.

I really don't want to bum you out, but I'm not sure what kind of cosmetics I'll even be able to use. This couldn't have come at a worse time, and is also stress induced, so it's no wonder I got it this month, but it's just so upsetting. Just looking at myself in the mirror makes me feel awful, everything itches and I look like a tomato. Lovely.

I might do some other posts, but definitely won't be testing out new bodycare at this time. I hope you'll stick with me and here's hoping the rash goes away ASAP.
How have you been lately?
