Homeware & Beauty Haul. Store Twenty One, Boots.

I went shopping last month and thought I would share my purchases with you. My bedroom was decorated last year and slowly I’ve been adding little bits to complete the look of the room. 

I’m finding Store Twenty One is so on point for homeware at the moment, even it isn’t all that well known as a shop. Our local store, you have to go right to the back for all there homeware but I do find theres so many gorgeous pieces, often on sale too!

The colour scheme of my room is silver, lilac/purple and black. I found some gorgeous candles in the shape of butterflies that I just fell in love with. I also bought a cushion to go on my desk chair. In addition I spotted a shabby chic photo frame, the muted pretty colours work so well with my room colours.

I’m still on the hunt for a few more photo frames, a couple more cushions and ornaments. I want it to be all cosy for Autumn time. Finally I wanted to add I purchased some beauty bits. My holy grail shampoo John Frieda Volume shampoo was a must and I was running out of shower gels. It was 3 for 2 in the Boots Extracts range so I bought three shower gels from that brand. I love, love the Brazil nut (another holy grail!)

Escada Born In Paradise Eau de Toilette 30ml (£24.50)

I got this perfume while I was on my Leeds Miley Cyrus concert trip weekend and thought I would do a little review for you. I bought the perfume in York on the second day in The Perfume Shop department inside Superdrug. The shop assistants were lovely and gave me lots of extras for example a free makeup bag and perfume samples.

The perfume is described as ‘Inspired by the famous Pina Colada cocktail, a delicious blend of pineapple, juicy fruits and coconut milk. A sunny perfume based on a fusion of gourmand and fruity accords.’

Its a beautiful summer fragrance whether you take it on holiday, wear to the beach or anything like that. I’ve loved Escada perfumes for years. I was hooked after first buying Escada Island Kiss when it was first brought out.

I think the scent is wonderful; I love the hint of coconut which makes it a little different from the other Escada perfumes. I did find the scent didn’t last incredibly well but for the money, you can splash it on a bit more generously.

It doesn’t quite live up to the original Island Kiss but it’s a very lovely perfume with a unique scent. I recommend it if you are looking for that perfect summer holiday perfume. I know we are going into A/W now so maybe it will be nice for S/S 2015? ;-)

Have you tried Escada perfumes? Which one is your fav? Xx
