Shoe Showcase #5 - Recent Purchases

Hello lovelies,

Hope you are all well and had a lovely weekend. 
Yesterday I headed to Chester with my Mum for a girls day out and had a lovely time. Today however, I have been feeling somewhat under the weather as I am coming down with a stinking cold! Fingers crossed I'm fit and well for Christmas; it's the first Christmas in 5 years where I will have no uni assignments or exams to worry about!

Anyway, to perk myself up, I thought I'd bring you another instalment of shoe showcase and share with you some pics of the newest additions to my collection!

These amazing shoes are from a Facebook run business called Totes Princess. I ordered them back in August when I blogged about my Ariel pair...they were so worth the wait!

These New Look boots are unbelievable sparkly; even more so in real life! They're perfect for the party season and I plan on wearing these on Christmas Day!

Whilst ordering my Christmas Day boots, I couldn't resist popping these into my basket also. I've been dying to add a pair of burgundy boots to my shoe collection (quick pop fact - burgundy is probably my favourite colour!) the fact that they were in the sale sealed the deal! They were from the wide section so I ordered a size 5 rather than my usual 6. 

Are you all set for Christmas now? I've a few more bits to pick up then have to tackle the task of wrapping; thankfully I've made a minor start to that too!

Boss Jour Pour Femme

Well, it has been a while! I've a whole host of posts planned however it's simply a case of finding the time and energy to do them all! Not to mention some decent lighting. Winter nights mean by the time I'm home from work it's pitch black outside and with Christmas looming over us my weekends have been somewhat busy!

Are you all set for Christmas? I've a few more things to pick up, providing I don't remember yet another person I need to buy for! When it comes to last minute presents, I always find perfume or aftershave is a fail safe option; and it's certainly a gift that I always love to receive. I love discovering new scents, however the problem is, I often fall in love and end up repurchasing them to add to my ever expanding perfume collection!

I was recently sent a new fragrance to add to my collection. 

BOSS JOUR Pour Femme is the sophisticated new fragrance for women from BOSS Parfums. Inspired by the first light of day, BOSS JOUR Pour Femme is using this unique moment to inspire women to seize all of their opportunities and create their very own stories, every day. With an elegant composition, the scent has been created to reflect three important female facets light, inspiration, and elegant composure, brought together in a beautiful blend of white florals with vibrant citrus 
I find this to be a very light, delicate and fresh fragrance. It has a subtle floral scent with an edge of citrus; for me it certainly wouldn't be one for the party season as I prefer something a little heavier for a night out. It is however, perfect for an everyday fragrance to wear for work, and would be lovely for a spring day. 

As it is only a light fragrance, I don't find it to have the longest wear time, however the scent does stick around for a good few hours before you feel the need to re-spritz. 

The bottle is very simplistic and unique with an opaque white bottle, as opposed to transparent glass as it often found with other perfumes. I do love the faceted lid, along with the gold "BOSS" embossed gold band which makes the bottle look expensive and luxurious. 

The perfume is available in 30ml, 50ml and 75 ml bottles; I was sent a 75ml bottle which retails £63. 

Are you a fan of Boss perfume? Have you tried Boss Jour?
