Red Buses And Pound Shop Banta!!


Over the weekend, I had a wardrobe freshen up. Anything I had not wore for a long long time, got cleared out. At Christmas I mention I was going to try and wear my best clothes more often. Then realised I had only wore my favourite London Buses dress {which my eldest son brought me as a present} once!

Most Popular Fragrance In Nottingham..

According to some research undertaken by Fragrance Direct, the most popular fragrance in Nottingham is Daisy By Marc Jacobs...


When it comes to buying perfume I am a little old fashioned. Whenever I have perfume as a gift off my Hubby or family I always say I want the same brand. I have stuck with Cacharel's Lou Lou for over 25 years. I still love it after all this time.


When it comes to picking a different bottle of perfume it is hard to choose. Do you go for a bottle which stands out more than the others? One that has been inspired by someone famous, just because you like them? Or keep smelling the testers until they all blend in to one in the same. As I say I end up with the same one as I cannot decide.


Last week Fragrance Direct emailed me about some research about the top selling perfume in Nottingham. They found that Daisy by Marc Jacobs is the most popular fragrance in the City. I must admit I have had my eye on this perfume for a while now, dropping hints at Christmas that my husband failed to pick up on.

If I could have picked any bottle of perfume to review it would have been Daisy. So I was very excited to get the chance to test it out. Once my perfume arrived, I tried it out straight away. My eldest son said, "what perfume you wearing mum? that smells nice"!! So I replied "I do don't I"!?!

Not only is the design amazing, the daisy on the top is adorable, it smell great too. A sweet and refreshing floral smell pops straight to mind. A lovely fragrance that reminds me of warm summer nights out.


How sweet is this bottle!?! It catches my eye, every time I walk by it. It is now proudly placed on my dressing table in my bedroom, spraying a little every day to smell lovely.


About the Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau de Toilette Spray 50ml:
  • Daisy is the first of Marc Jacobs iconic fragrances for women, a fresh and floral fragrance which is youthful and sweet and perfect for summer. 
  • Marc Jacobs Daisy is light and easy to wear and features a cool combination which includes Strawberry, Violet Leaf and Blood Grapefruit top notes, heart notes of Gardenia, Jasmine and Violet and base notes of Musk, Vanilla and White Woods. 
  • Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau de Toilette Spray comes in a glass bottle decorated with daisies, a very ornamental perfume which looks and smells fantastic. A must for young women.
  • £43.99 in Fragrance Direct RRP £52.00 SAVE £8.01

Is Today Going To Be The Busiest Shopping Day In Nottingham?...

Did you hit the shops yesterday for Black Friday and bagged yourself a bargain? Or did you stay at home like me to leave the falling out and fighting, {I've been reading all about on the news} to someone else?


This morning I'm up early to do some shopping in Nottingham. Forgetting until I read on Twitter yesterday it is suppose to be the busiest Saturday of the year. Eek.... Wish me luck...

Here is what I wore for shopping in Nottingham last week, when it was raining...



What I wore | Coat : c/o Boden | Boots : Barratts | Umbrella : Hotter


Today I'm shopping for Christmas jumpers so me and my youngest 2 children can wear our jumpers on Monday when decorating our Christmas tree...


What is on your shopping list this weekend?

Get Busy Living...


One Saturday me and my youngest 2 children had a fun day out shopping in Nottingham. First we walked a mile to the train station, kicking a few fallen leaves on the way through the parks. Then lots of games and giggles on the train ride.
