Scent of a dream

Photos taken with Panasonic Lumix LX100

So I was invited down to the Charlotte Tilbury store in Covent Garden for the new fragrance launch. As soon as I walked in I could smell such a mood lifting scent - of course it was the scent of dreams!  Scent of a Dream is a first-of-its-kind ‘floral chypre perfume harmony that Charlotte calls ‘fleurotic™ frequency’ - a psychoactive scent pathway that attracts love, light, power, positivity and sex to the wearer. The story goes that she wore it out one night and caught the nose of a gentleman who was instantly attracted to it and asked if she ever had a scent of a dream. With such a major attraction to her signature scent - she decided to finally create her own fragrance and collaborated with Kate Moss who is the face of the campaign. Who better to collaborate with than Kate? Two icons combining their forces together to give consumers an incredible experience.

At the store, I also got to experience the virtual reality goggles which transitioned you into Kate, you get to explore the galaxy and hit up a kick ass party. There, you stumbled upon a man who is attracted to your scent and a love story is waiting to happen. It was such a cool experience and such an awesome way to combine technology with the beauty launch. It gave you the experience of wearing the scent on a night out. I love scents like this with such an emotional and mesmerising back story, as it truly connects you to another level when you are wearing the scent. Another thing I love about it is that it smells different on everyone and throughout the day the scent changes. Giving you such a personal experience with every bottle. I truly have fallen in love with this scent and can't wait to wear it in the next few days to really see what it can offer. Experience the VR here! (view on your phone!)

With such a whirlwind mixture of lemon, black pepper, jasmine, fire tree and violet to name a few, no wonder I'm so drawn to it! You can get your hands on the fragrance exclusively at the Charlotte Tilbury store in convent garden store or Selfridges!

How to dress like a child and get away with it...

Vintage dungarees | Brandy Melville tee | MDG jewellery necklace | Converses

I'm always up for wearing dungarees as they are super easy to style and wear all day. I wore this in LA whilst I went for breakfast at the Beverly Hills hotel - yes I did get some odd looks but I was so content with how comfy I was. I think the key to pulling off an outfit that you wore as a child is just pure confidence and also accessorising well. You should wear everything with your head held high and with the biggest smile. Thats the key in making any outfit go from 80% to 100%. 

It's definitely something I didn't get used to instantly but over time it has helped me wear whatever I want and ignore what other people may think. I get asked all the time how I am when wearing certain outfits and how I react when I get a negative response. The truth is, I really don't give a shit. If an outfit makes me feel good and happy then why sacrifice it for someone else's thought? At the end of the day, you should be able to wear whatever you want. Express yourself how ever you feel like it. So the key to wearing anything and getting away with it? Confidence! Now feel free to dig up those old photos and recreate some childhood outfits!
