Perfume/Eau De Toilette Tag!

Before I begin:

  1. I am beginning to get more interested in tags, so if anyone would like to tag me feel free too. But, I don't like the Liebster Award, Versatile Blogger Award or any other similar tags. I'm sorry if you tagged me for the Liebster Award in the past, as I know a few did. I'm not sure why, but I don't like them. Tag me for anything similar and I'll do it.
  2. This tag does only say Eau de Toilette but I hope you don't mind if I include body sprays! They are similar... Also my camera isn't working at the minute so sorry I didn't take actual photos, just pictures off the computer.
Thanks Kate (the Fashion Chain) and Gaby (Don't Need Make Up To Cover Up) for tagging me!

Enjoy!



1. Show us pictures of your perfume/eau du toilette collection and/or describe what you have!


Wonderstruck by Taylor Swift
My most recent perfume, and is so elegant and unique, like Taylor herself. An enchanting scent, fit for any occasion. I received a sample for this from Mizz magazine and from that moment on I longed to have it. And now I do! Unfortunately my bottle does not have charms on it, but it's the perfume that matters!

"A floral fragrance with sparkling fruity tones on a wooden background. The top notes are raspberry, dewberry, green tea, freesia and apple blossom."

Malibu Beach Body Mist by Hollister
I looooove this! It's great for casual days when hanging with friends because if they ask you what perfume you're wearing you can reply "Hollister!" Hehehe My friends and I are mad about Hollister and A&F, especially now there popular in Ireland.

"Almond and vanilla combine to create a warm, casual scent."


Oriflame Eclat Weekend
A nice and relaxing scent, nice for weekend shopping (obviously, look at the name of it!) or on a sunny day at the park in spring.

"A gorgeous blend of tangy red currant and juicy pear flows into a refined bouquet of centifolia rose and sheer watery flowers."







Impulse Very Very Pink Body Spray
I bought this in the summer with my friend, and she bought it too. It reminds me of those long summer days in our neighbourhood, messing about, filming music videos with my iPod and lounging around on the field or in the trees. Some memories eh? A girly scent that you can spray to get you in a fun mood. That's how I feel anyway.

"A deep blend of bitter orange with musk and sandalwood at it's heart"

Boots Pretty Body Spray
Very similar to the above body spray, but not as special. A strong, mystical scent. I feel pretty when I wear it (think of West Side Story).

"A lively and zesty fragrance"






2. What is your favourite out of this collection?

Definitely Wonderstruck!


3. How often do you wear perfume/eau de toilette?

Quite often. I wouldn't spray on some everyday, I usally do on special occasions when I'm taking my time to get ready. I sometimes forget to spray some on though, and I have to spritz my mum's Coco 
Mademoiselle in the car when if going somewhere; I always like to smell nice when leaving the house!


4. Do you wear perfume/eau de toilette to school?

I like to, but again, I forget. I'm always in a rush to school!

5. Do you have a particular S/S perfume/eau de toilette?

I'm not sure what S/S means, but I'm guessing it means Spring/Summer! If I'm wrong tell me... I don't really have one. I wear all of my perfumes/body mists regularly.

6. What is your perfume/eau de toilette wishlist?

Nicki Minaj's Pink Friday, Taylor Swift's Wonderstruck Enchanted, Katy Perry's Meow and Katy Perry's Purr
I had no idea Katy Perry had perfumes! She is my idol!
I probably won't get these perfumes for another few years, I should use up the ones I'm using first.

Pink Friday Nicki Minaj for women
Meow Katy Perry for womenPurr Katy Perry for women

My New Year Resolutions (+ Plans for my Blog)!




Heeeeeey everyone!

So today I am going to share with you my New Year Resolutions for 2013 and also I will be telling you my plans for Dorky Fizzy and Quirky Stuff for the new year!

My New Year resolutions are usually the same every flipping year and often I don't succeed them, but this year, I am determined to keep them and never forget them! I have broken these resolutions already, as I've made these up pretty recently, but it's never too late. :)
So let's begin...

  1. Don't worry too much, keep calm and carry on!
  2. Focus on the positives
  3. Spend more time with family and friends and think of them more (don't be selfish)
  4. Be more studious and organised
  5. Keep fit and be a stronger hockey player
  6. Eat more healthy food
  7. Keep practicing piano everyday
  8. Blog regularly :)
  9. Take more care of my teeth and skin
  10. Learn something new and make new friends
  11. Be confident, happy, kind, caring, outgoing and determined
  12. Enjoy life and have fun!

Now here are my exciting plans for my blog for 2013 

I will be doing the following type of posts:

Book/Film/Book/Product Reviews
My Nightime/Morning Routines
Tags and Fun Blog posts
Seasonal Lookbooks (Spring, Summer etc.)
OOTDs or OOTWs
Tutorials and Hauls
(Possibly, if I'm allowed) a Room Tour

And more!
Suggest some!


Also, at the beginning of every month I will do a favourites post about the products I loved the last month, for example, I will do a January Favourites around the beginning of February

Lastly, I started a new series in December called 'Janes Diary' so I will be continuing that. Basically they are blog posts about big events that had happened to me in the previous two months!
So if you want to see my October/November post click here
And I will upload my diary for December/January at the beginning of February.

So I hope to post soon, as usual I am super busy with school/homework, friends etc etc.

Goodbye, and once again, I wish you all a magical new year.

❄ What I got for Christmas 2012! ❄




Before I begin, I have something to tell you 2 things.

1. HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!

I wish you all a safe and wonderful new year. 2012 was a great year and I hope you guys enjoyed the year too.  But don't think too much of the past, think more of the present and future. I am going to try and have the best 2013 ever! I might share my (not-so-private) New Years Resolutions soon.

2. Secondly, I am not bragging or showing off to you what I received in any way what so ever. 
As I said in my last post, I enjoy watching and reading the 'What I got for Christmas' videos and blog posts  and I thought it would be fun for me to do too. I am so grateful and blessed for everything and I had  awesome time with my family on Christmas Day. 
All the following gifts I received from Santa, family and friends. I hope you enjoy!



Make-Up + Beauty products
We will begin with Make-Up

This is all the make-up I received

I love this BB cream


The Sugarlicious set by Benefit is amazing!

This brush is really soft and I use it for blusher

I got the Glam'Eyes Quad palette from Santa and the Trio palette from my auntie, as she didn't know I was getting it from Santa as well. I love the nude colours on this palette!!!


I got three mascaras: the MaxFactor Eye Brightening Mascara for Blue Eyes and two Benefit They're Real mascaras (one small, one big). The reason I got two is that I got the big one from Santa and the small one from my sister, as she had no idea Santa was bringing it as well. Again, like the incident above.
Yes the MaxFactor mascara is still covered in plastic because I can't take it off :P
This brown Scandal Eyes eye pencil is pretty good too

 (Forgot to include this and the lipgloss below in the group photo, whoops)
This is the Royal Jet Set Girls on the Go Eye Shadow Set

This lipgloss is lovely and natural, like its name

Other Beauty Products

I absolutely love Batiste and this dry shampoo is so good. It  has a cool and unique scent.
These nail polishes look so cute and I can't wait to try them out. I love the coral and the baby blue colours!
As you might have saw in the Winterlicious Tag, I had a Ciate nail polish on my wishlist, and  I got one from Santa! This is not the exact one I asked for, but it's still amazing! I will show you a NOTD soon. :)
EEEEEEKKKK!!!!
This perfume is amaaaaaaaaaaaaaaazzzzing!!!
I absolutely love it and I'm so glad I asked for it for Christmas!
I don't know how to describe the scent, so all I can say is that it's gorgeous!!!!!!
I received this cool foot lotion and these socks from a friend. I haven't tried them out yet, but I predict good things from them! The socks are extremely soft!
I also got this manicure set from that friend and it looks pretty cool
€40 Boots voucher from my godfather! This is in the Beauty section as I always buy beauty products from Boots. I also received money from my granny but I don't want to show how much, and I got a voucher  for  my local shopping centre from my godmother, but I don't want share that either.


Clothes + Slippers
(All of my new clothes are from Hollister, which I adore)


I am in loooove with this hoodie
This top is so summery but I'm still wearing it in winter, like, whatevs!

I was wearing this new top the day I took the pictures

Pajama bottoms!! Lol :)

This top is neon and is sooo pretty
And I got 4 pairs of slippers/slipper socks

Penguin slipper socks!!!!



Electronics + Miscellaneous 

As you already saw, I got the Canon PowerShot SX40 HS camera to share with my sister, the biggest present I got  this year! I love it so much!
I also got the Xperia P phone! It's so good! It's my life now ;P
On the Winterlicious tag post, I mentioned I wished to get the Xpera J phone, but it doesn't make a difference! This phone is class! I hope to buy a case for it soon, as I want to protect my new baby...
Wow! These CDs are awesome!
But my favourite has to be Taylor Swift's Red! The best songs on it are 22 and Stay Stay Stay. Little Mix are brilliant too. JLS aren't my favourite and, but they made a CD.  And the handsome James Arthur did not disappoint me either.
My sister also got the Maroon 5 and the Script CDs, and we both have an iPod so we are sharing the CDs in a way by downloading the songs onto our iPods.
Plus, in case you think we're crazy, we already have the new One Direction CD! 
Mmmmm Chocolate!!!

This bracelet is beautiful! It is a Shamballa bracelet, my Mum told me, and she loves it as much as I do!
I got this cool map from my other grandparents and what you do is scratch off the places you have been to. I have only scratched Ireland so far (if you see the green on the picture) and I have been to way more places than that! I have some work to do!
I got 5 books that I can't wait to read!

I have painted before, but now I can begin properly now that I have these!


And finally I got these headphones, which are shliiick!



Thank you everyone who gave me these presents!!!
I am so happy with all of them!
Once again, I wish you all a Happy New Year and I will talk to you soon!

For Now, Jane xox
