I love ladybugs (I know their called ladybirds but I call them ladybugs, have done since I was a ickle tot) I used to collect them when I was younger and have them as pets in a jam jar, they absolutely fascinate me, how they are so tiny, with such intricate detail on their little backs. When I am older I plan to have a Volkswagen Bettle in red, and then have black dots painted on it, so I can literally be a lady bug, anyways, getting totally away from the subject of this post, I treated myself to a new perfume, I don't have a massive perfume collection, I have just a few main ones that I love and that I wear to death (i.e Vivienne Westwood's Cheeky Alice, Peter Andre's Unconditional, one from Clarins, which I never remember the name, I just love it because when I smell it, it reminds me of my Grandma, so I have a small bottle in my make up bag with me all the time, and then the only other perfume I have is one that Marks and Spencer used to sell, and it smelt like orange juice, I loved it, saw it went into the sale, so bought two bottles.) Therefore, as I don't own many, I thought it was time to get a new one, I received a £20 Debenhams gift card for my 18th birthday that I still hadn't spent, so I used that to go towards my perfume, me and my mum wandered around all the perfumes smelling so many that by the end I absolutely stank of a massive mixture of perfumes.
Whilst wandering this huge umbrella on top of one of the stands caught my eye, it was a Marc Jacobs umbrella, we loved it, and then.. that's when I saw the most perfect perfume for me, a perfume, that not only smelt absolutely gorgeous, but the bottle was inspired by a LADY BUG!!
The perfume is Dot by Marc Jacobs, it smells very refreshing, yet very floral, its the sort of scent that you can put on and it doesn't over power you.
I then noticed a sign in the Marc Jacobs display that said if you buy any Marc Jacobs perfume 50ml or above you get a free Marc Jacobs umbrella, so I just HAD to buy the 50ml Dot by Marc Jacobds perfume to get the free umbrella; a 50ml bottle of this perfume was £47 which was a little pricey but I was prepared to pay it, I took it to the till and that's when I day got even better, the customer assistant told me that for £3 more, I could get the Dot gift set, which included a 50ml bottle of perfume, 75ml bottle of shower, 75ml bottle of body lotion and then I still got the free umbrella.. Bargain if you ask me.. So I bought it, so with my voucher, over all it only cost me £30 which I thought was brilliant.
After getting all of this and in true Debenhams fashion I got samples of new different perfumes that are available.
♥ Just Cavalli by Roberto Cavalli
♥ Love Struck by Vera Wang
♥ CK one SHOCK Street Edition by Calvin Klein
I haven't used any of these yet because I have so many perfume samples it is actually ridiculous, so I am just going to add them to my pot of samples and then I just pick up one at random each day to use.
Well, thats my latest perfume, and a the list of my favorites, whats yours, I would love to know?
