1: Black Opium Nuit Blanche by Yves Saint Laurent

Top 5 Bridal Fragrances-5

I absolutely loved Black Opium when it first came out, and now there is Nuit Blanche- its smokey vanilla twin. Choose this EDP by YSL if you want to smell as good as your wedding cake!

2: Dolce Rosa Excelsa by Dolce and Gabbana

Top 5 Bridal Fragrances-3

Dolce is perfect for those wanting a really lovely floral scent on their wedding day. It’s a classic choice for a classic bride and you’ll be coming up roses with this perfume.

3: Narciso by Narciso Rodriguez

Top 5 Bridal Fragrances-4

Take Narciso as my wild card in my top 5 bridal fragrances. This gem is quite exotic and so may be perfect for those getting married abroad. Think sensual jasmine by a moonlit lake, bottle it and this is Narciso!

4: Viva la Juicy by Juicy Couture

Top 5 Bridal Fragrances-7

Juicy Couture have had some fabulous scents over the years but this one is just divine. This classy and playful fragrance will definitely leave its mark as you move close to your newly beloved for that first dance.

5: Flowerbomb by Viktor and Rolf

Top 5 Bridal Fragrances-6

Flowerbomb by Viktor and Rolf is a brand new discovery of mine and I am in LOVE! It is so light and floaty that you will just wear it all day long without having to feel overpowering or concious that you’re going to cause a sneezing chain in your front row of guests! It is floral but also musky- maybe for those indecisive brides?!

So now you’ve seen my top 5 bridal fragrances! Which one would you pick? Have you tried any of these or do you have any other reccommendations for us brides to be? I’ll be keeping my choice a secret until the big day, mostly because I haven’t made up my mind yet on which one I’m going for!

Bloggers Hangout Summer Heatwave

Another month, another fabulous Bloggers Hangout event. This time the location was Charing Cross and the venue was The Strand Gallery. I had been looking forward to this as I do every BH event. Danielle (the founder) always goes the extra mile and certainly puts on one hell of a shindig for the bloggers as well as the brands attending. The Bloggers Hangout Summer Heatwave (as I am calling it) was a 3-day extravaganza of which I managed to attend 2 days. I can’t wait to give you all the juicy details about my fav brands there and who I went with!

On the first day, I went with a lovely blogger called Kendra. She is an American blogger over in London for a few months so we met up and I showed her just how amazing being a blogger in London can be! It was so hot in the venue we both were glad we wore summery dresses!

We visited KB Hair and took this epic snap, KB Hair Extensions had some lovely colours to show us, including grey!


Sass and Belle, a homeware brand with so many lovely things, had a chat with us and talked us through their range of amazing summer products. I adore my pineapple cup which I featured in my Karma Cola post!


We met a fabulous nail wrap designer who was displaying her amazing collection of Dinkibelle wraps. I can’t wait to try mine out and show you!

The Perfume Shop was located downstairs at the venue and they had the most amazing display of all their favourite fragrances old and new. My absolute favourite of the day was Viktor and Rolf Flowerbomb, it’s to die for! Floral fragrances and the stunning setup definitely had me in the summer mood at the Bloggers Hangout Summer Heatwave!

Onto Day Two. This time I took with me my best blogger bud Merrell-Ann from TrousseauDiaries to explore some more!

We met Pink Parcel who are a fabulous brand helping girls from all over with their ‘Classic Period Drama’ It’s a monthly subcription service to help us girls through our stressful times every 28 days and they include not only femenine products but makeup, skincare products and best of all- chocolate!Bloggers Hangout Summer Heatwave-6 Bloggers Hangout Summer Heatwave-3

I met with Faust’s Potions on the 2nd day who were just great. They have come up with some lovely remedies to help wake you up in the morning (which tastes like orange juice) and also they have one to help relax you before bed at night time. I’ll be fully reviewing these products on the blog very soon so not going to give away anything else!

Bloggers Hangout Summer Heatwave-10

Regenerate were great to see at the event, they are a dental care company who have created products which help to restore your enamel. I must say I’ve been using the toothpaste for just over a week now and there is no sensitivity anymore when I eat cold things which is wonderful. I will definitely keep you all posted on how I progress with the advanced toothpaste and boosting serum.

Bloggers Hangout Summer Heatwave-9

I also took some shots of three gorgeous bloggers wearing DaSilva London clothing outside the venue. It’s the perfect spot for a blogger to stop and take some photos if you don’t want to trek all the way to Kensington!
