Marc Jacobs - Dot - My current favourite

I usually get a new perfume each year just to mix it up a bit, and Dot really caught my eye! I was really hoping that I would love the scent just as much as I loved the bottle, and thankfully I did! I previously had Daisy which was by Marc Jacobs as well and I've always been fond of his perfumes so I had the sneaky suspicion that I would take a fancy to this one.

It's described as;
Dot is a lush juicy floral - happy and vivacious.

The top captivates with a delectable blend of red berries, succulent dragonfruit, and sweet honeysuckle.
The lush floral heart of the fragrance blooms with addictive jasmine mingled with energising notes of coconut water and orange blossom. The scent rounds out with a feminine drydown of creamy vanilla, driftwood, and sensual musks.

I have to agree that this scent is very feminine and it's one of those things that you just get hooked on and can't stop smelling! I highly recommend you go and smell this when you are in your next perfume shop and you will be just as drawn to it as me, it's definitely my new favourite! And a plus, is that the perfume lasts throughout the day, which is always a good thing!

Shabby Chic Desk - Project 1

Recently I have been loving this 'Shabby Chic' style and have decided to remodel my whole bedroom in this design. I know how much of a task this is going to be as my room is currently all pine furniture and plain walls(boring!)
My first step is going to be my furniture, and by this I mean paint it all cream/white and hand paint a whole lotta roses onto it! My first piece of furniture victim I choose to start with(trying my hardest not to wreck the poor thing) was my pine desk!   


I'm really happy with the outcome and am now looking forward to doing the rest of my furniture! Must admit though, finishing all the roses was such a chore which I quickly got bored of after the second draw, but never mind, it's all done now!

1. Use a paint primer
2. Paint it all white - the shade was 'Broken White' but for the life of me I can't remember the brand
3. Decorate the draws!

What do you think? I'm rather proud of it haha
