The Latest Additions To My So...? Fragrance Family


I could probably count the number of days that I haven't spritzed a So...? Body Mist [either on my person or around my room] on just one hand. And one hand alone. Ie - I'm constantly spritzing these bad boys into & around my life - they truly are a #SoMistHave product within my existence. 

And it's not just me who's a tad obsessed with these handy mists & their erotic aromas... during my epic three week hospital stay recently, all the nurses would pop by for spritzes of my sprays during their shifts - and they were constantly commenting on how lovely my hospital room smelt. Dark Romance will always remind me of those days; where I went a bit stir-crazy, befriended half the NHS and spent most of my time on Insta stories looking like some kinda drugged up smackhead in my trackies. But I smelt gooooood.

ANYWAY - there's a few new additions to my So...? body mist / fragrance fam that I wanted to share with you guys in this post today; cos I've really been enjoying them since their arrival via Paul the Postman. They're insanely cheap, total dupes for the Victoria's Secret room sprays [I quite often use my Rose Petals mist to spray my bedding with before hitting the hay] and therefore I D E A L Stocking Stuffer potential; if you're after some Christmas Gift Guide inspo.

In their pretty bottles, vast range of scents and with each 100ml bottle packing approx 600 spritzes; these bad lads are fantastic value for money - and a must have for your handbag, gym bag, desk at the office, room, bedding and life overall. They're available at Boots, Superdrug and all major supermarkets - where they're pretty regularly on offer for as little as £1.99... meaning that there'll be a fair few of these sassy sprays popping up in many of my Christmas prezzies this year. Love me a bargain.

These new scents to the So...? fragrance fam [and my life] are as follows:
So...? Candy Floss*, 100ml RRP £3.99 
ONLY £1.99 AT BOOTS RIGHT NOW!

You may be able to tell from the telltale signs on the pics in this post, but Candy Floss is legit my fave thing ever. The scent I mean, the actual delicacy itself makes me feel sick incredibly quickly and feels pretty much like brushing your teeth in raw sugar. I've sprayed it frigging loads since it arrived in my life - I can't get enough.

It's sweet but not like, sickly sweet. Pretty, pink, long-lasting and doesn't rot your teeth on impact. It's a proper dreamy fragrance which reminds me of being a young, care-free and debt-free kid; where my dreams didn't involve being able to shop outside of the Whoops! aisle in Asda and I genuinely thought I'd grow up to be rich & successful.

So...? Sweet Pea*, 100ml, RRP £3.99
ONLY £1.99 AT BOOTS RIGHT NOW!

This spray smells properly gorgeous too - sweet, floral and a little like Parma Violet sweets. There's a very edible theme going on here, loool. I might need to make some lunch soon and stop snacking on cookies... there's a possibility I may be a tad hungry.

I'm horrend at describing perfumes and scents [my vocab goes about as far as 'Oh that's proper grim that!' or 'OMG I WANNA MARRY THIS PLS!'] so I'll go with what So...? have to say on this one. They describe it as 'A floral sensation with a romantic twist! With sugary sweet pea accords that blend with notes of white flower, this is the perfect fragrance for evening and date nights.' SOLD.

ONLY £1.99 AT BOOTS RIGHT NOW!

Yesssss to more food related fragrance! Another sweet fragrance with a slightly more musky vibe, Toffees & Cream is a great daytime mist. I'd say it smells not quite as strongly as the others featured within this post - and it's a vanilla scent not worlds away from the fragrance you get from the Vanilla Milkshake mist - but that is in no way a bad thing, as that's another one of my faves from the collection!

So...? Fragrance New #SoMistHave Body Mist Review Lovelaughslipstick Blog Sweet Pea Candyfloss Toffees & Cream Floral Crush

So...? describe this flirty fragrance as 'A sugary sweet scent that mixes delicious notes of creamy caramel and sweet vanilla. Ideal for everyday wear!' And I couldn't agree more, lads.

Finally we have this little beauty - I adore the packaging of these So...? The Collection mists. So pretty, amiright? This is the newest addition to their sassy range of fashion fragrances - So...? Floral Crush*, 100ml RRP £4.99 - WHICH IS TOTES ON OFFER FOR JUST £2.49 AT BOOTS AT THE MOMENT! Floral Crush is my crush. It smells a little like Armani Code I reckon - it's powerful, feminine yet daring. 

It's fragrance starts off with notes of apple and waterlilies for a fresh sensation, before melting into a rich, warm heart of floral aroma; such as rose, red magnolia and white peony. All complemented by lux blackcurrant and pink pepper. OR if you're like me and appreciate blunt, to-the-point kinda reviews: 'IT'S FIT.'

As expected, I've fallen that little bit more in love with So...? after havin' a whiff of their latest fragrances. These are some of my favourites to date - really different, fresh and strong scents that last all day and set you apart from the crowd. After all, it's not everyday you walk past someone who smells like Candyfloss ... but now I've smelt this mist, I wish it was!

Have you tried any of So...?'s mists yet?

[Belated] Little Known Box August 2017 Review*


Well, I think this is a new record for me in being late. Apart from last weekend, where I set an alarm for 7:30am and woke up at quarter past two in the afternoon... that was a pretty good go too. LOL. What is my actual life?

I received this beaut Little Known Box in August [this is the August 2017 Scent & Colour Edit*] but unfortunately life has kinda got in the way of me posting this review since then.

Buff Christmas GIft Ideas*


Although Christmas is one of the most highly anticipated events of the year; it doesn't half tire you out. Well, it does to me anyway... but maybe that's just a tell-tale sign that I'm getting old & edging that little bit further through my fossilisation process. 

Shopping, wrapping, eating, cleaning, cooking, drinking, eating a bit more and office parties can quickly take their toll on your energy levels - and after a big night with the girls from the office throwing some serious shapes to Gangnam Style, your muscles might be a bit achey too. And that's where Buff Bodycare come into their own - well, for rectifying all that and also in that their Gift Boxes and this Body Oils Gift Collection Set* [RRP £24.00] make gorgeous Xmas gifts.

Palette Porn | Technic's Colour Icon Eyeshadow Palette*


I've become pretty invested in perving on eyeshadow palettes of late. I'd say I spend approximately 33-47% of my daily life sneaking peeks at them on Instagram [Colourpop has my heart in a way I can't describe without weeping a little] whilst avoiding picking up angry calls from the bank re: my horrific overdraft lyf.

The only thing that makes me weep more than these palettes' insane levels of beauty and perfection however, is the price & accessibility of them. Holy mother of hell. As a bargain hunter through and through [think David Dickinson but minus the tragic Bargain Hunt fleece & slightly less terracotta - and that's me] I simply can't justify splashing out my entire life's savings on makeup... no matter how nice it would be to do so. 

But that's okay yeno - cos if you know where to look, you can find products boasting equally fantastic quality; but with much smaller price tags. And that's maths that I actually like. Here's a perfect example of a palette I'm loving this month which fits this criteria perfectly... costing just £2.99 [!!!!!!!! Usually retails at £4.50, but I seem to have stumbled upon an offer] at Fragrance Direct, this Technic Colour Icon Eyeshadow Palette* is an actual must have - and a sh*tting fantastic Stocking Stuffer shout.

At just £2.99 - or even at £4.50 [or just £3.99 on eBay with free delivery] - I can't cope with the insane levels of value for money. I feel like one of them Ma's on the Asda adverts from back in the day; when they were pure buzzin' over the money they saved on cheese and sandwich meat & tapped their bum pocket on their jeans to rattle dem spare coinz & show how much better off financially they were. JUST LIKE THAT. 

The shades in Technic's Colour Icon Palette are fleeky AF - bang on trend for AW17... and there's 14 of them! All for dem low, low prices. Fourteen legitimate super buttery, creamy, pure pigmented eyeshadows to play around with & weep hysterically over... for less than a fiver. Regardless of where you order it from.

Each shade has a pretty, glittery, shimmery finish with sooooo much colour pay-off it's unreal - I think my neighbours must have thought I was having some mad kinda sex rampage with the amount of excitement and yelling I was letting out whilst swatching them. But I also don't care because they are the worst members of modern society.

The palette has handy 'Base' and 'Definition' pans in the centre, with brighter, bolder and more metallic shades either side; clustered together to form two distinct looks. The left-hand side of this pure prinny palette is bright, pastel triumph and the right is a metallic, copper treasure trove of eroticness.

JUST LOOK AT THEM SWATCHES! I'm particularly impressed with the metallic shades - they're beautiful; but some of the silver and more neutral tones were tonnes more pigmented than I imagined they'd be - and will be perfect to highlight my brow bone and tear duct / inner eye with. 

But I mean, for that price .... I literally cannot fault this palette in any way. It's fast worked its way up the league table to become one of my favourite Technic palettes that I've tried to date - and that's saying something... as I've tried A LOT as this brand's biggest obsesso!!
