Sensual Scent!

This year Lolita Lempicka unveils her long awaited new fragrance Elle L’Aime, a timeless, universal and utterly feminine fragrance.

The radiant floral scent has a delicate coconut note which exudes warm sensuality and offers a fresh new take on ultimate femininity. To create this unique accord, Lolita Lempicka has captured the most precious essences from nature. Dazzling top notes of bergamot and neroli give way to a bouquet of rich and sensuous white flowers: jasmine, ylang-ylang, and coconut flower. The base notes of vanilla, myrrh and sandalwood add warmth.

If you are looking for a sweet, light and delicate winter fragrance then I highly recommend Lolita Lempicka Elle L’Aime!

Calming Candles

There’s nothing quite like flickering candles burning on a cold winter’s evening. These Champneys candles bring the warmth of summer with them and are wonderful for giving your home a warm and cosy feel.

Enjoy the tropical aroma of grapefruit, lemon, orange peel and cedarwood oils drifting through your home from a fragranced candle. Let the beautifully exotic scent evoke memories of summer and sun-drenched shores. Sit back and unwind as you bring the relaxation of being at a spa to the comfort of your own home.

Relaxing Reading – Bridget Jones: Mad about The Boy

When Helen Fielding first wrote Bridget Jones’ Diary, charting the life of a 30-something singleton in London in the 1990s, she introduced readers to one of the most beloved characters in modern literature. The book was published in 40 countries, sold more than 15 million copies worldwide, and spawned a best-selling sequel, Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason. The two books were turned into major blockbuster films starring Renée Zellweger, Hugh Grant and Colin Firth.

With her hotly anticipated third instalment, Bridget Jones: Mad about The Boy, Helen Fielding introduces us to a whole new enticing phase of Bridget’s life set in contemporary London, including the challenges of maintaining sex appeal as the years roll by and the nightmare of drunken texting, the skinny jean, the disastrous email cc, total lack of twitter followers, and TVs that need 90 buttons and three remotes to simply turn on.

Although this book has a very different feel to it than the first, and to the movies that we all know and love, it is still the perfect book to curl up and relax with! Bridget’s life has changed a lot and the latest chapter of her life is not at all what I had expected. I’ve not finished it yet, but this has definitely got potential. I wonder if there will be a new movie to follow?
