juicy couture original eau de parfum

This is this first 'grown up' perfume I ever bought and its still my all time favourite. Its a very feminine scent, and its quite floral but not an overpowering floral, it has hints of wild rose and lily in it which makes it super girly. The main scents are watermelon, mandarin and passion fruit, which immediately appeals to me. It is quite sweet but not in a sickly way, the eau de parfum lasts for quite a while so I don't feel the need to reapply this much. Along with being sweet its quite fresh and crisp, as it has hints of green apple and marigold. To me it smells really 'classy' if you can get classy from a perfume, I feel like its quite mature so its not something I tend to wear on a daily basis, usually just on special occasions. I fall for packaging and the bottle for it is gorgeous though its not to practical for carrying around with you as it has a huge lid.

january favourites

mac - backtrack fluid liner, indeed - hydraluron, loreal - lumi magique, benefit - chacha tint, benefit brow zings, lush - dream cream, mac - viva glam gaga, pukka - castor oil

MAC gel eyeliner - I have loved wearing eyeliner recently, I think it really opens up my eyes and makes me look better. This MAC eyeliner is quite old and I probably should bin it, but it still has loads of product in and it has not dried up at all. I think gel eyeliner is the easiest to work with and since I have finally mastered the art of the wing its got quicker and easier to wear on an everyday basis.

Indeed moisturiser - I mentioned this in my 'recent buys' post and ever since buying it I've been putting it on my face before moisturising and my skin condition has increased dramatically! My skin has never felt so soft and looked so vibrant.

Loreal concealer - This is a simple concealer which is perfect for under eyes as its quite light and has highlights in it to really brighten up your eyes and make you look wide awake.

Benefit cha cha tint - I got a sample of cha cha tint in a magazine and its an incredible coral orange colour, I know its not really the season to be wearing coral coloured make up but it doesn't bother me. I've finally found a way of putting it on with out it being to streaky, I put some on the back of my hand then dip my brush in it, it then goes on your face evenly and you can build the colour up if you like.

Benefit browzings - Before Christmas I got my eyebrows waxed at a different place to normal as the benefit brow bar was fully booked and I wanted them done before Christmas day and the lady did them far too thin than usually I like them. So this really helped me thicken them up a long with the castor oil in between the awkward growing out phase. Its quite dark which hid any bald spots etc.

Lush dream cream - This is my new favourite hand cream, I think it is the most moisturising hand cream I have ever tried, its a yellowy cream colour and it smells of lavender which isn't my favourite scent but I can deal with it. It skinks into your skin almost immediately and leaves your hands soft for hours.

MAC viva glam gaga - This is a lipstick I've had for a while but I've just remembered I had it and I've not stopped wearing it. Its again quite an out of season colour but I use it as more of a stain and it gives a really nice light pink colour to your lips.

Castor oil - When the lady did my eyebrows too thin I googled how to get them to grow back faster and loads of sites said to put castor oil on them, so I did and oh my goodness it really worked! My eyebrows are thicker than they've ever been and the little patches which didn't have much hair have grown back.

sabo skirt gold statement watch

sabo skirt - gold statment watch - £40 (including p&p)

I have been wanting a gold watch for a while, and I really wanted a Michael Kors one but since everyone and their granny seems to have one now I thought I'd just wait to find a different one, though I still lust over Michael Kors watches I might end up jumping on the band wagon and getting one. I spotted this watch on Sabo Skirt and immediately fell in love with it, I thought it would make a perfect 'filler' watch, my old watch is silver and with the majority of the jewellery I wear being gold it looked strange, so I really needed this (at least thats what I tell myself). Its clearly quite a flimsy material and its coated with a very yellowy gold colour, but that doesn't bother me too much as it was only a fraction of the price of MK watches. When it arrived there were loads of links in it and it could fit on both of my wrists at the same time, so I had to get a lot of links took out. The first place I took it to couldn't remove the links because they're a strange kind of fastening, and I thought I would have to return it but luckily the second place did it and it fits perfectly. I love the way it looks on my wrist and it looks so much better with the jewellery I wear.

My new years resolution to blog more hasn't got off to the best start, I think it was because I was wanting to get my url changed over so hopefully now thats done I can get going. What do you think of the new name and layout? I hope you could find my blog alright since I still have my old url to direct you all to here. I chose calvi rose because Calvi is my favourite place ever, its in Corsica and its the prettiest place I've ever seen, and rose, well just beacause it fit. You pronounce it 'cal-vee' rose, for anyone who was wondering. 

Does my navigation bar annoy any of you? Since it sticks to the top of the page, I quite like it but if it irritates any of you I can change it.
