So two very nice things arrived with the postman this week. I’ve got to know our postie very well since the blogging started as there’s been a fair hike in the number of parcels coming to our door. This week he brought me new (to me) boots and a little bit of Lady Gaga, in the form of her new perfume Lady Gaga Fame – Black Fluid.

Now, I’m not a fan of celebrity perfumes generally and I did raise an eyebrow when this came in the door as it’s completely black in colour. But advance fragrance technology means it sprays clear – amazing!
It’s a night-time fragrance – the mix of Belladonna, sweet honey drops, saffron and apricot, amongst others, makes for a heady fragrance. I asked 5 of my friends to try it the other evening and got all positive reactions from them with comments such as ‘very middle eastern/exotic’ ‘perfect night out perfume’, ‘a bit like Opium’.
I’ll be honest, when I smelt it first, I wasn’t sure but it’s grown on me since as it’s got a lovely lasting scent that softens as you wear it. And it really lasts well.
So if you’re looking for a night-time perfume, definitely worth checking this one out at Gordons Online where it’s priced at a budget friendly £22.99. Lots of other great perfumes in stock there also – check out the whole range on this link.
And the boots, I hear you ask? Well, I’d spotted these French Connection beauties on my blogging friend Wendy’s site, Thankfifi. But they are no longer available to buy so I’d been keeping an eye on eBay for them. Low and behold, a pair in my size appeared last weekend for £20, buy it now. Well, thank you very much, I’ll have those!
Not entirely sure how I’ll style them – any ideas? I’m off to have a closer look at Wendy’s blog for some inspiration too.
Oh and in case you’ve missed it (how could you??!), I’m giving away a handbag AND some gorgeous candles on the blog at the moment. Click here to enter my Christmas Facebook 1000 competition!
