Burberry Body; behind the scenes


, , ,

Our televisions have been splashed recently with Burberry’s one and only fragrance; Burberry Body. Here are some shots from behind the scenes of the campaign film:

Behind the Scenes

The Film

“Burberry Body is a feminine and effortlessly sensual fragrance with an eclectic combination of refined ingredients.
The scent has top notes of fresh green absinthe, illuminating elegant peach and refined freesia.
The floral bouquet of natural rose absolute and iris blends gently with subtle warm tones of sandalwood to form the heart notes.
Woody cashmeran, creamy vanilla, sensual amber and musk compose the base.”

(Description from The Perfume Shop.)

The Summer Dress;

The summer dress; trusted and relied on by generations, for when the sun comes out to play. Accompanied by a silk scarf, a straw hat, a cardigan or jacket, pretty pumps or even biker boots like Daisy, this simple creation can go a long way. It’s the perfect and trusted creation that hangs loyally in every woman’s wardrobe. Plus, it comes in all shapes to suit any body frame; from a skater a-line dress for the pears, to a bodycon for the hourglass.

Here’s my little example of the summer dress for your inspiration:

My Treat :)


, , ,

It’s always important to treat yourself every once in a while. Personally, I tend to get so caught up in the busyness of every day life; studying, working, and all that jazz, and completely forget about taking time out and making myself happy.

Every so often, take a little time out to treat yourself. It may be a pair of those killer heels that always catch your eye when you’re walking to work, or that cute shirt you’ve been meaning to try on, or it may just be as simple as a relaxing evening in curled up on the sofa with your favourite movie, or a girlie pamper session.

My treat this month was a new Fiorelli handbag that I’ve had my eye on for quite a while, and after a long time of hardcore studying I decided it was time to put a smile on my face.

Go on and treat yourself. As our gorgeous Cheryl would tell you: Because youre worth it!
