Jo Malone // Wisteria & Violet

Nothing excites me more than walking into a Jo Malone store. The beautiful, fresh smell that hits you when you walk into the impeccably decorated room compels me to buy the majority of the shops content, alas that wouldn't do a great deal of good to my bank account (but a girl can dream right?!).
Upon my entrance into the store I had to give the new London Rain collection a sniff, and oh boy I'm so glad I did. The thing that makes this collection so amazing is that there is a scent to suit everyone. After smelling each one a number of times to find my suitor I finally settled on one, Wisteria & Violet.

I fell in love with it as soon as I smelt it, love at first smell you could say?! This one is the freshest and most floral scent out of the collection. Needless to say, this one is chosen out to be my staple spring and summer scent. The lady packaged it up for me in the well recognised and loved, chic cream and black box. I can say that I am over the moon with this purchase, this might be one of my favourite scents Jo Malone has come out with so far or at least a close second to the English Pear & Freesia.

Jo Malone, you do not disappoint.

Essie 'Luxedo'

Essie's 'Luxedo' black cherry polish is what I have been wearing on my nails pretty much non-stop since I got it. This shade is perfect if you love dark polishes but don't want to jump straight into the deep end with a black. Plus anything Essie is a winner for me. The fact that you only need one coat for this polish definitely puts this straight into my good books and it lasts a good week when paired with Essie's 'all in one' for the base and top coat.
