NEW LOVES - VICTORIA'S SECRET FANTASIES







Hello lovelies! How are we all? I hope you're all good! I'm still on a bit of a high after finding out I was shortlisted for a Cosmo Blog Award (I will stop going on about it eventually, I'm just not sure I've ever been so excited in my life!). I was shortlisted for Best New Beauty blog, so if you want to vote for me or any of the other lovely bloggers, you can do so here. My category is page two, make sure you vote in every category then hit submit at the end! Anyway, ramble over, onto the actual point of this post. I have been absolutely loving Victoria's Secret lately, which is a massive pain because it's so bloody difficult to get to in the UK! There are a few stores in London and while I live fairly close to London by train, I can't just pop over whenever I feel like it. Also, why why why don't Victoria's Secret stock online in the UK?!! 

Anyway (again) after buying Victoria's Secret Bombshell perfume (seen in the photo above, LOVE this by the way, let me know if you'd like a review!) in the Bond Street Store, I decided that definitely wasn't enough and when my sister Hannah said she was off to Stratford Westfields the yesterday, I asked her to pick up a few of the Victoria's Secret Fantasies bits and bobs on their 5 for £30 deal. I browsed the website and chose five fragrances I liked the sound of and asked her to get me a couple of perfumes and three body splashes. I'm sure these are 5 for $30 in the US, which is a much, much better deal than this but I just couldn't resist! 

The fragrances I chose are Pure Seduction and Pure Daydream (both perfume), Midnight Dare, Love Rush and Strawberries and Champagne (body splashes). I'd actually just found out about the Blog Awards when Hannah handed me the beautiful striped bag full of pink goodies, I actually squealed. What is it about those bags? Just me? I wore one of the perfumes (Pure Daydream) today and am so impressed with the lasting power of it. These little beauties retail at just £11 each, which I think is amazing for such a fab perfume with such great staying power. All the scents are very fruity/ floral, with the exception of Midnight Dare, which is a little deeper and sweeter, with a hint of Vanilla, even though it doesn't claim to be! They all smell gorgeously girly and even the body splashes last ages too. I wore Love Rush in my hair and on my work uniform today to see how it would last compared to the perfume and by my surprise I could smell that as well as I could the scent on my wrists. 

Overall, I'd whole heartedly recommend these beauties to anyone - they're amazing! Let me know if you'd like full reviews of any of the scents!

  1. I agree with you, VS needs to start stocking online in the UK. I always see their stuff in US beauty bloggers posts and get jealous.

  7. I would love to try these so much, I wish I lived even remotely close to a store, or online in the UK would be amazing!! And don't worry it's not just you, I got a Christmas present last year from the U.S online shop and I squealed opening the big pink striped box!! :) xx

  8. My sister owns Pure Seduction and I'm always stealing--ahem borrowing--it haha. It reminds me of fruit punch but not in a bad way! I'm definitely going to end up picking up a bottle myself, it's such an addicting smell.

  11. Love Vicroria's Secret, I went to the Westfields store last year and was amazed, but it was so expensive I didn't come away with anything :( But my friend came back from NY with one of these bags for me, they really are special for some reason haha.
    Congrats on the cosmo nomination too, I've already voted for you :)

  12. I adore the scents of VS: I picked up so many of them when I was in the US and i've not gotten sick of them yet. My favourite is Coconut Passion, which is Coconut and Vanilla and the yummiest scent ever!
