Holiday Haul

Good Morning Sun shines!
I hope you are all having a lovely week.

It has been nearly a month since I came back from Cyprus and I thought it was about time I showed you what I purchased while abroad. I didn't buy much but the things I did buy mean a lot to me and are very exciting and I still cannot get over the fact I have them. Ah, like a child at Christmas!

So let's start!
 The first thing I purchased while on holiday in Cyprus was a Beats Pill and the little cute frog stand for it to sit in! I think this is absolutely adorable. His name is Frank the Frog and I can't get enough of him. This was a brilliant deal in Cyprus and one week a year there is a market in Paphos, and we were there when the market came, ahh! How exciting that was. I am so glad I managed to find Frank. The sound he produces is absolutely amazing and for a speaker that uses aux, usb and bluetooth (I think you can use a memory card too), I think this is a brilliant purchase and I couldn't be more happier with him! Isn't he cute? My boyfriend also picked on up but in green and he called him Alan, aw!
 I also couldn't help myself when it came to the Beats Solo 2 headphones. After having my tragus and daith piercing done, I find it really difficult using the headphones which you put into your ears. It makes them feel sore and uncomfortable and I was in desperate need of a pair of headphones which you put on your ears inside of inside. We hunted round Paphos Market at the Harbour nearly every single day for a pair of baby pink beats and then I changed my mind and wanted the bright pink pair but I didn't want a damaged box (I am so fussy). So I ended up finding these beautiful white beat headphones and I had to get my hands on them. They are an absolutely incredible pair of headphones. I have never had any headphones which are as good as these and overall I am very impressed! I love how comfortable they are on my ears, and they don't squish my head either.
 This is a standard purchase when you go through Duty Free at the airport. I saw these when I was leaving England, and I saw them again leaving Paphos, So I bought a few. It's a Toblerone, milk chocolate with the little bits of almond in which actually chipped my tooth! I couldn't believe it. However, they are still amazing even if they do damage to your teeth and you need to go get your hands on a Toblerone if you're reading this, they are am-a-z-ing!
 Soo, now onto perfume. I already have around 9 perfumes, but you can never have too many perfumes. You always have to smell nice! My boyfriend picked me up the Alien perfume for my first Christmas present from him and I fell in love with it and I think he did too. He smelt it and when outside of work to ask the lady what perfume she was wearing so he could buy it for me, so sweet! I absolutely love the smell of this and I feel like it's more of an evening scent than a day time scent. It is beautiful. I don't really know how to describe the scent, but if you are ever near a perfume shop, find this and smell it! You won't regret it. A description from The Perfume Shop website is "A rich floral woody amber fragrance containing jasmine sambac, cashmeran wood and white amber it is a fragrance whose magic trails awakens your emotions."
I absolutely love the Paco Rabanne Lady Million perfume, I received this as a Christmas present a few years ago and I have loved it ever since. Unfortunately, the one I received is very nearly empty so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to purchase a bigger bottle for once my one is empty. I really love the scent of the Lady Million perfume, it's a scent you can wear during the day and in the evening. This perfume isn't for everyone but it's definitely worth checking out and giving a sniff to see whether you like it or not! I love the shape of the bottle, and the colour of the liquid. It's an all around beautiful product and this will be one of them perfumes which will always be in my collection. A description from The Perfume Shop website is "A femme-fatale who wears scent to seduce. Lusting for life and living for the chase. A trail of white (sexy) flowers awakens the skin with fresh notes -that spill over into a dangerous patchouoli".
I absolutely fell in love with this perfume when I smelt it. Originally I bought it for my mum, and ended up going back to a shop on my last day in Cyprus to purchase another for myself because it was too beautiful to not buy. I absolutely love the description of this perfume too because it truly does some up what it smells like. "Discover Black Opium, the feminine fragrance by Yves Saint Laurent – new glam rock fragrance full of mystery and energy. An addictive gourmand floral with notes of: Black Coffee – for a shot of adrenaline; White Florals – to instantly seduce; and Vanilla – for sweetness and sensuality." This perfume is perfect for the day time or to wear only in the evening. It's beautiful, my boyfriend loves it, I love it and this will be another perfume which I will continue to purchase when the bottle is empty.
This is another beautiful yet mysterious perfume. Personally, I think this is an evening perfume and it will definitely be one which I wear out on date nights. Once again this perfume has a magnificent description from The Perfume Shop; "The Guilty Black lovers bring out the most scandalous sides of each other: alone they are magnificent, together irrepressible. Fearless in their passion, they are brazen, shameless, unpredictable – ready for each and every explosive encounter. Their attraction is instinctive: they go where they scent danger and each other. Too much is never enough for our young hedonists, who drive each other to stray ever darker. Life is thrilling and meant to be lived to the fullest. Again and again, they give in to pleasure and the excitement of breaking the rules. Gucci Guilty Black is a sensual oriental floral, inviting you to indulge in your burning desires."
If you haven't ever smelt this, I highly recommend finding your nearest store which sells perfumes and try this out. It is an incredible scent and one you won't be able to walk out of the shop without! Another perfume I will also repurchase.
Last but not least; is Loverdose. My boyfriend saw this on our first day in Cyprus and he fell in love with it and said I needed to buy it. I didn't buy it and then kicked myself for it so hunted everywhere for it until I found it. This is a beautiful heart shaped diamond bottle with pink liquid. It's a perfume you can wear during the day or in the evening which is something I love about some perfumes!
Let me know what your favourite perfume or aftershave is! This perfume has the scents; mandarin, star anise, liquorice, vanilla and dry woods. The description of this is "A spellbinding essence that makes the woman who wears it irresistible, and the man who comes near her fall madly in love." Completely makes sense why my boyfriend loved it so much! Another perfume I highly recommended trying out, you'll love it.

What's your favourite perfume?
