L'Occitane Beauty Easter Egg

Pamper yourself or a loved one this Easter with the ultimate Easter Egg gift from L’Occitane.

Save your calories and your waist line by indulging in this Cherry Blossom Beauty Easter Egg (£15).

Costing not all that much more than a regular run-of-the-mill large chocolate egg is this gorgeous gift which offers so much more than just a moment of pleasure!

Packed into the beautifully illustrated egg shaped tin are a trio of hero products from the Cherry Blossom collection.

Hidden inside and waiting to delight your body, mind and soul are;

Cherry Blossom Shower Gel, 75ml
Cherry Blossom Scented Soap, 50g
Cherry Blossom Hand Cream, 10ml

For those of you unfamiliar with the Cherry Blossom range from L’Occitane; think soft and sweet and delicately floral notes which envelop your senses and calm your mind.

The Cherry Blossom collection captures the poetic beauty of springtime in Provence where flowering cherry trees colour the Luberon Hills and perfume the air.

You might say it is the perfect springtime scent.

I adore this set. If you aren’t familiar with this particular collection then it allows you the perfect opportunity to try it and if you are a long-time fan then you are now the lucky recipient of the cutest minis!

The shower gel foams wonderfully in the shower, gently cleaning your skin with masses of soft, frothy bubbles, leaving behind its delicate, feminine and fresh scent.

The cute little scented soap looks very sweet sat in my bathroom and makes washing my hands a pleasure while the Cherry Blossom Petal-Soft hand cream does just what it says on the tube.

Enriched with Vitamin E and Shea Butter this thick, rich and yet not at all heavy or greasy, delightful hand cream instantly nourishes and moisturises your skin to leave your hands feeling indulgently soft and smooth.

I adore this wonderful little spring time gift set and think it is the perfect alternative to chocolate gifts this Easter.

L’Occitane’s Cherry Blossom Beauty Easter Egg is available now and costs £15.

Cadbury's Easter Offerings 2018

It’s that time of the year again!

With Easter just 4 days away its time to wake up and smell the chocolate, remember that it IS only 4 days away and head to the local shops to panic buy 5 billion eggs for friends and family.

Ok so I may have just been describing what happens in my house. I’m sure you’re all much more organised than me. Anyway, I digress.

When it comes to choosing Easter eggs there really is only one brand for us and that is Cadburys.

Classic, sweet and delicious it is the favourite brand throughout my family and thanks to their expansive range of eggs and gifts of differing shapes, sizes and prices there really is an egg for everyone.

Of this year’s offerings several stood out to me as winners guaranteed to put smiles on the faces of everyone from my almost-2-year-old to her grandad.

First up is this super cute Cadbury Dairy Milk Peter Rabbit Easter Egg and Toy Pack (RRP £6.99).

This gorgeous gift contains a simple yet scrummy child-sized Cadbury easter egg with a cuddly Peter Rabbit or Flopsy soft toy from the new Peter Rabbit film which is out at cinemas now.

I don’t like to ply my little ones with huge amounts of chocolate at Easter so this gift is perfect!

Just look at cute the bunny is and trust me, after they’ve seen the film they are definitely going to want one of these!

For £6.99 I think it’s a pretty fab price for the toy and chocolate- you’ll pay more than that for other brands of Peter Rabbit soft toys so it’s a double winner in my opinion.
Another top pick of mine is the Wispa Gold Egg. This large egg comes with two full sized Wispa gold bars and is just beyond delicious.

I’ve always loved the lightness of a Wispa bar and love the added decadence of caramel in the Wispa Golds so for me this ticks every box going!

Last but by no means least is the crème de la crème of Cadburys Easter 2018 picks- Friends, meet the Cadbury Dairy Milk Fruit & Nut Ultimate Easter Egg.

With a slightly more expensive RRP of £12 this huge egg is very special.

If you are a fan of the humble fruit and nut bar, prepare to have your dreams realised as Cadbury have created an egg which contains hidden pieces of fruit and nut within the shell itself.

Yep. The egg is essentially a fruit and nut bar.

Mind. Blown.

If that wasn’t enough to satisfy you there’s also a sharing bar of Fruit & Nut included too.

Quite frankly I think this is an inspired move by Cadbury who have also added this extra special touch to their Daim egg too.

Bravo Cadbury, looks like we’ll be having a Fruit & Nut and Dairy Milk Easter in our household this year!

Issey Miyake L’Eau d’Issey Pure Nectar

L’Eau d’Issey Pure Nectar de Parfum is the beautiful new spring-time scent from Issey Miyake.

This delightful, fruity-floral scent is the third edition to launch from the iconic brand. 

Retaining the original concept that at the source of L’Eau d’Issey there is a single, rare drop of water in its purest form, Pure Nectar is a representation of the process that results in a flower’s precious nectar.

“Nectar is the ultimate stage in the metamorphosis of water, from sea to dew and from dew to rose.
A petal turns into a blossoming flower, yielding a drop that captures its purest perfume... its nectar.... and dew turns into nectar.”

Indeed its concept of a single ‘drop’ is once again reflected in the appearance of its tall, elegant tear-shaped bottle.

Its exquisite copper and rose gold hues have been purposefully used not just to create a stunning vessel but to reflect the radiant rose nectar within.

It really is the most gorgeous bottle, both in its sleek and chic shape and its eye catching, warm and stunning tones.

It is so much more than just its bottle though. This fragrance is literally like spring captured.

Pure Nectar opens with notes of soft, sweet, tender pear drenched in golden, delicate, aromatic honey.

This sweet freshness gives way to heart notes of dew-pearled rose petals, sweet and soft and instantly recognisable as a beautiful floral boutique.

Base notes of creamy Sandalwood then blend seamlessly with sandy and salty ambergris to create a succulent and soft experience while cashmeran accord rounds off the scent with the signature Eau d’Issey note.

I love the complexity of this fragrance.

It somehow manages to be both fruity and floral, light and creamy, bewitching yet breezy and undeniably delicately feminine.

It is a fragrance that exudes new beginnings, new life and in essence, spring.

 It is a beautiful perfume to look at as well as to wear and is nothing short of enchanting.

The delightful Issey Miyake L’Eau d’Issey Pure Nectar is available now and costs £77.50 for 90ml from The Fragrance Shop.
