The Body Shop Brazil Nut Range

Hands up how many of you stock up on something you love?! I may sound a little crazy but when I find something I love, I make sure I have plenty of supplies backed up - just in case! When I first discovered The Body Shop Brazil Nut range last year I fell in love immediately. I'm a sucker for scents and if you saw my perfume and body spray collection you'd believe me. Scents remind us of happy memories and emotions so I like to mix them up a little.

Brazil Nut Eau de Toilette is my new perfume of choice as of late. It's a bargain price normally at £8.50 but since Brazil Nut is from their Limited Edition range, it's currently on sale on their UK site so grab it while you can (before I do!). I have quite a considerable amount of all of the range stocked for when they decide to re-stock it again. If you love Caramel, Vanilla and Coconut type scents then you will love this!

 The Beautifying Oil is also pretty amazing. I hate the feel of oils usually but this sinks in quite quickly and the scent is overpowering enough to make it last on your skin for a few hours afterwards.

The Body Mist is very similar to the Eau de Toilette with an extra ingredient or 2 but the difference being the mist is 100ml where as the perfume is 30ml. The Eau de Toilette lasts longer on the skin but I layer them both to make sure it lasts as scents fade on me within a few hours.

The Body Butter and Body Scrub are another also worth trying if you love the scent.. I'm a huge fan of The Body Shop's body butters and they are the only ones I go back to over and over again. Make sure to Google their latest discount codes as they usually have one on offer.

What's your favourite type of scent? Do you stock up on your favourite products like me or am I the only crazy one?!

2014 Changes

Hello everyone. Happy New Year! I can't believe it's 2014. As I said in my last post I've been away for New Year and the reality of work again this week has hit me with a ton of bricks! (when's Easter?!). I've read quite a few New Years Resolutions posts and What I've Got For Christmas which is lovely so I thought I'd contribute to the changes that will be happening on La Vida Fresa for 2014.

Firstly, I've decided that the main focus on my blog this year will be lifestyle, of course beauty is my main passion but since I've not been buying much beauty over the last few months, I can't keep up with all the latest buys. Which brings me on to the next topic. Hopefully in the next few months I plan to be moving house which means less money for beauty, stationary, clothes and the likes and more money for furniture and housey things.

I'm trying to cut my spending to a minimum but these sales have been just too good to pass up! I've got a few posts lined up. My latest purchase is this H&M knitted jumper for a bargain £6.99! They have an offer on for free delivery too at the moment with code 1055!

Here are a few photos I took of our break away to Bremen, Germany!







Have you made New Years Resolutions or do you stay well away like me?

What's the best bargain you've found in the Christmas sales??
