Ebb & Flow Southampton

For months I'd been walking past Ebb & Flow in Southampton saying I had to try it and just never got round to it so when Amy and I spent the day walking around in the sunshine and shopping, we made it our mission to go and try it out. We went in on a Monday afternoon while it was relatively quiet which meant we had the chance to have a real catch up and take advantage of the free wifi. Ebb & Flow sort of has a serve yourself vibe which I loved. You just go up and help yourself to whatever from the fridge while grabbing a menu on the way.

Yves Rocher Sérum Végétal Wrinkles and Radiance

Turning twenty five made me freak out about my skin so if you saw a crazy lady swiping all the skincare in a shopping basket in Boots, that was probably me. I haven't quite found my go to routine yet, I'm a bit of a skincare floozy. I jump from cream, to serum, to different brand and then back to where I started again so when the Yves Rocher Sérum Végétal Wrinkles and Radiance set landed in my hands I couldn't cleanse my face quick enough.

Last week I went along to Lush Southampton for their Easter Preview night with some of the blog girls. I love this time of year with Lush, first comes the January sales then Valentines, Mother's Day and Easter, I'm just there handing them my money. Rosie and the team laid on drinks and were bursting with information on all their new seasonal products and the new Gorilla perfumes.

The Habitat Birchbox

There's nothing I love more than when my monthly Birchbox falls through my letterbox. It's the little box goodies that is guaranteed to put a smile on my face but I must say I wasn't blown away by this months. The March Birchbox is in collaboration with Habitat which was one of my favourite homeware stores before they pulled out of Southampton. The theme is 'Do try this at home' and is all about refreshing your home, getting rid of that clutter you've been meaning to and just have a sort out. Something I've been doing recently as we finally have the new wardrobe up! Also inside this months box is a 20% discount code for Habitat in store and online.

Marc Jacobs Perfume Collection

I've been pretty open about my addiction to Marc Jacobs perfumes, I share the pretty bottles on Instagram and drool longingly at the new collections so it was only fitting that I posted my MJ perfume collection on Annie Writes Beauty. The Marc Jacobs Sorbet collection launches today so before I buy the two latest releases I thought I'd show you my current collection.

My love for Marc Jacobs started with Lola, a dark and flirty scent I've been wearing for five years, I'm on my third bottle now as I usually wear this through the Winter months. You can read my review of it here - Lola by Marc Jacobs. I also have Oh Lola! but it's not one of my favourites. I picked it up really cheap in the January sales a couple of years ago and had to add it to the collection!

My second bottle was the original Daisy which then was swiftly followed by Daisy Eau So Fresh and a limited edition bottle of Daisy from the 2012 Sunshine collection. All the Daisy perfumes have notes of Wild Strawberry, Violet Leaves and Ruby Red Grapefruit among other notes to make them all different. My last bottle from the Daisy line was Daisy Dream which was released last Summer. It's the most beautiful bottle and scent. I did a review of it back in September last year - Daisy Dream by Marc Jacobs. I can't wait to see what's added in the future.

My last two bottles are Dot and Honey. Dot was based on Marc Jacob's love of Polka Dots and contains notes of Vanilla, Jasmine, Dragon Fruit, Coconut Water, Red Berries and Orange Blossom. Honey is happy go lucky scent which was my go to Summer scent last year and has notes of Pear, Mandarin, Honeysuckle, Vanilla, Peach and Apricot. As soon as I have the perfumes from this years Sorbet collection I'll be posting them on here so keep a look out. I'd love to know if there are any Marc Jacob perfumes that are your favourites too.
