Snow, Philosophy & Garnier

Well, here we go again, I'm back to give this blog a bit of love. So, today I woke up to find that everything was white over, but everything was sunny, so surely it wouldn't be long before it all melted, right? Nah, the weather at the moment is completely all over the place and in a matter of minutes it went from sunny to blizzard conditions. After about half an hour it was back to being sunny. The weather at the moment is so weird. One good thing about the weather is the fact that dogs love snow.

Anyway, once the snow subsided I went out to Meadowhall. I popped into Boots and spied that their Philosophy Christmas items were on sale at half price. They had a few good ones like Candy Cane and Eggnog, but I decided on Holly Berry Bubbly.
This smells like a gorgeous mismash of wonderful berries. Although it's a Christmas scent, I don't think it smells that festive. I think that's why I decided on this one. The Eggnog & Candy Cane both smelt very Christmassy. I previously bought 'Have A Cherry Christmas' which was a very strong smelling sweet cherry scent. It was iridescent pink colour and is such a lovely shower gel. Holly Berry Bubbly is a bubble bath and has no iridescence to it. It looks a lot thinner in consistency than the cherry one, but I am going to give it a go as a shower gel too. We'll see how it goes!

I also picked up one of the new Garnier Moisture Match moisturisers. This range caters for all skin types, whether your skin is oily, dry, dull or normal, you can find an item to suit your skin type. I went for the Mattifying Fresh Cream which is for Combination/Oily skin. My skin is a bit all over the place really. Some times it's very dry and others it's quite oily. Most of the time it's slightly oily so I went for this one. It smells really fresh and sinks into skin really nicely. We'll see how it works. 

That's all for today folks!


  1. We has snow for the first time in years but it wouldn't stick. I'm super jealous :(. My dogs love snow too, especially trying to catch snowballs.

  2. It was snowing here too yesterday and it did stick but thankfully most of it has gone now :)
