Dublin Haul

Oh dear.... so much for NOT spending money in Dublin. While in Boots I noticed that Britney’s 'Midnight Fantasy' was 50% off. I LOVE the smell of this perfume. A girl I used to work with always wore it and smelled fab! I have wanted it for ages but at €25 I never seemed to get round to buying it. However, at €12.75 I could not resist. :)

The perfume is described as 'Britney Spears Midnight Fantasy opens with the forbidden richness of Black Cherries fused with Framboise and Exotic Plum. In the middle notes, the seductive Night Blooming Orchid and mischievous Freesia flirts with enticing Velvet Iris. Finally, in the base unforgettable, magnetic, sensuous musk, amber and vanilla.'

This perfume is very sweet and would not be everyone’s cup of tea, but I just think it smells divine! I'm a big fan of sweet perfumes so I love Britney's range. I'm also a big fan of the design and packaging of the perfume, both the actual bottle and the box. It's a perfume that looks pretty in my room! I have sprayed the perfume loads of times in Boots and find that it has a really good staying power. The scent stayed with me all day without the need to reapply which is always a bonus as the bottle will last longer.

I also popped into Awear to return a dress that I bought that didn't suit. They have a sale on at the moment so I had a goo at the sale Jewellery. I find Awear fantastic for sale jewellery and once again was not disappointed. I picked up this very unusual chain. I just LOVE the details on it and think it will really brighten up a plain dress/top. It was reduced in the sale to €3, I'm not sure how much it was full price but other necklaces in that range vary from €15- €25.

My lips are really dry with the cold weather that we are having and need lip balm on them every day. Today like the eejit I am I left my Carmex at home. By lunch time my lips felt dry and horrible so I went into a random chemist to pick up something to sooth them. The first think I grabbed was 'Blistex Intensive Moisture' it’s designed to sooth the lips with ‘Intensive Moisturiser contains 5 penetrating moisturisers for serious saturation & a unique formula that soothes your lips with a deep down tingle.' The product also contains Shea Butter for extra moisture.

I have to say I'm quite impressed with this lip balm. My lips felt so much better by the end of the day. It does however have an awful 'hospital' smell if that makes sense?! It is also very small so it would not last as long as a tube of carmex. Moisture wise I think it might be a winner but value wise Carmex would have to win. 

Hopefully I will be able to stop myself buying anything the next time I'm in Dublin.... Hopefully :-/
