Chloe scents are some of the best on the market, but, for me, the selling point for perfumes are the packaging. Of course, the scent matters but unless it'll look a million dollars on my vanity I rarely purchase them.
When the Chloe Love Story* arrived my heart literally skipped a beat. Literally. The casing glistened in every light and the bottle was one of the most spectacular things I've ever laid my eyes on. I love little details so the tiny satin ribbon around the gold ring, which surrounds the circle lid, really adds to the product. The gold case matching the yellowy, gold, tones of the perfume also helps to pull the look together.
At first sniff, I wasn't in love with it. I found the scent far too mature for me, so just left it. About half an hour later I could smell something floral and slightly sweet, and I realised that the scent took a little bit to die down, about 5 minutes, before it's true scent was revealed. There's mostly floral undertones but a hint of sweet/fresh. The scent lasted for a few hours and I got compliments that whole day.
This would make for a perfect christmas present for your mum, sister, daughter, nan, pretty much anyone with a nose. Chloe Love Story Eau de Parfum is available at SMSeruya Buy 50ml for £43.56 here or 75ml for £52.47 here.

The first thing I ever notice when I meet people is their hair, my hair is mighty unruly so I've always envied people with flawless hair. The look that really turns me into the green eyed monster is super sleek, voluminous, hair- and I think I may have just cracked the secret to achieving the look.
A few weeks back I got sent a set of Original Pink Sleep In Rollers* but wasn't quite sure how to use them. After a few (okay, maybe many...) youtube tutorials I finally plucked up the courage to give them a whirl and boy, was I pleased I did!
They are rather fiddly as you've got to section each piece of hair and find a place on your head for each one to sit, and once theres already a line of rollers getting the pins in becomes a little bit harder. Eventually, however, I grasped the technique.
I found them comfy to wear but not comfy enough to sleep in as I wriggle a lot so I found it moved and pulled at my hair, so I wore them for a few hours during the day. The pack comes with 20 rollers, and I have long thick hair and found that, I only needed 15 tops.
They don't add curls to your hair, but they add a bit of bounce. If your hairs long like mine the bottoms may be curled but the majority won't be.
I can't recommend these enough and for the bargain price of £17.95 I urge you all to buy them immediately.
