Daisy Dreams Forever

Tuesday, September 15, 2015

Good Ol' Mark Jacobs fragrances. A recent addition to the iconic perfume line up is Daisy Dreams Forever. Inspired by blue skies and day dreaming, this fragrance is youthful and fresh and although marketed as a summery scent I think it’s a really nice transitional fragrance.

Similar to the original Daisy Dreams, the scent opens with a fruity mixture of blackberry, pear and grapefruit. The heart goes into flowers of blue wisteria, jasmine and fresh lychee, with the base following up with strong blond woods. It’s juicy, fresh while being warming and elegant at the same time. It reminds me a little bit of blueberry pies. The bottle is probably my favourite offering from Marc Jacobs for a long time, it’s colour is just beautiful and really striking.

Much stronger and fruiter than the original version, so if you liked Daisy Dreams but wanted some more oopmh then give this a spritz next time you’re near a perfume counter!  Daisy Dreams Forever just has way more character and punch!

Okay, so a quickie old outfit post before we start a fresh with some new ones as of this week! This was from a shoot I did while working with a brand a while back that I found on a memory cards while trying to free some space up on my vlogging camera. I actually thought that Id lost all these files when my laptop broke and had to be wiped, but I did a mini fist pump when they showed up!

As of today Im going to try and post on this blog at least 5 times a week. I dont really like setting targets or schedules out for myself as from experiance it can lead to failture but I spent some of last week working on a bunch of new content and ideas for this site so hopefully things will run pretty consitently for a while. Like i said I always worry about posting TOO much stuff, like at the moment Im vlogging everyday and then posting three videos a week. Which personally I think is way too much stuff and constantly fear about things getting lost on the shuffle, but hey ho. It keeps me busy and I do enjoy doing it so it doesnt bother me too much! As long as you guys are into it them Im pretty happy to keep going! Anyway, yeah Hi again!

H&M Home Haul

Sunday, September 13, 2015

As I've been in my new place for almost a month now (wow, thats flown by! Well overdue an update on that situation!) But I've been recently getting into gathering decor for my new flat recently and I've already done a small haul featuring Tiger, Primark and Urban Outfitters already but I just posted a brand new H&M home haul over on my Youtube Channel.

Decor has really made me feel like my flat is coming together as Im finally getting past the stage that feels like Im not getting anywhere and things are starting to feel more homely! Hope you like what I picked up!

Gone Girl

Tuesday, September 08, 2015

Hello! I would apologise for my absence on this blog but I have been posting pretty consistently over on my social media (all of them are @llymlrs) as well as on my Vlogging Channel as of late so I don't feel too guilty to be honest. But I am sorry Ive not updated my blog readers and addressed you all directly! I always worry about spreading myself too thick and then things getting lost in the mix but I think I owe it to the platform I started out on to keep you guys in the loop.

So my house is getting nearer and nearer to becoming a functional place where I can properly make content so Im hoping by the beginning of next week I'll have the blog up and running on a daily basis again! Im really excited about this, I have a notebook full of ideas for content over the next few weeks as well as getting back into both outfit and beauty posts on the reg.

Honestly I cant tell you how weird it is not blogging regularly. While I've still been posting vlogs pretty much daily I just haven't had the time or the inclination to just sit down and type. I dont know why but even typing this out is weirding me out to a degree as I just feel so out of practice. I feel like I've forgotten how to use my internet voice and how to just be LLYMLRS on the internet.

I always tell people when they start blogging is to not stop as you will lose your momentum and find it hard to get back in to and thats exactly what Im feeling right now. However Im determined to get back to at least posting more than once in a month like I did last month. That was absolutely shameful as I've never in my whole blogging history posted so few times in a month!

Anyway, like I said. Things are looking awesome in the new flat. I just want my sofa to arrive so I can finally finish off my living room, which is shaping up really nicely as well as start actually deciding on how I want my bedroom to look. Im still browsing through endless pins on Pinterest looking for the one photo that sparks off my imagination and gets my interior juices flowing! Maybe I'll share some of my favourite photos on here next week!

See you then!
