Bottega Verde Lavanda Handcream and Giardini Toscani

Oh man, I am so sorry that I left this blog alone for almost 2 months! Such a bad bad bad mommy! SORRY!!!!!!!!!!! I will try to be more active over here! 😛 I have been trying many new products and can’t wait to share them with you! Please be extremely patient cause life has been crazzzzzy!!!!!!!!!!

Today, I will share this with you these two products from Bottega Verde that I placed on my work desk and I use them every day to keep myself relaxed and calm thanks to the aromatherapy!! <3

This rich, bounteous cream is an ideal source of softness and well being for hands. It nourishes, moisturizes and protects them from the harm caused by the elements. The special formula is packed with active ingredients from plants, including lavender extract from plantations in the Italian Apennine Mountains, coconut oil, honey and precious shea butter. It offers authentic beauty care for the hands, keeping them silky and soft while also releasing the wonderful scent of lavender with every use.

Actions:Softening, soothing and nourishing.

Scent:
TOP NOTES: bergamot, lavender and ivy leaves.
MIDDLE NOTES: sage, artemisia and patchouli.
BASE NOTES: vanilla, amber and musk.

Characteristic:Cream enriched with precious organic shea butter, lavender extract, coconut oil, honey, vitamin E and allantoin.

The texture is a bit rich and takes slightly longer to be absorbed into the hands. However, it was not too oily and after it was absorbed into my skin, my hand’s fine line kind became blur and  hand felt instantly softer and smoother! You can also see the photo below that my hands looks more moisturized and glowing! I just wish there is a smaller size so that I can bring it along in my bag! For now, I just leave it on my desk so that I can use it whenever I need! ^^

Bottega Verde Giardini Toscani in Podere Fiorito
bottega-verde-giardini-toscani

Carefree, sweet and floral

Feel like you are walking barefoot on a freshly cut lawn, with the vivid aroma of the green grass still floating into the air alongside delicate, silky petals emerging from enchanting buds in the flowerbeds and alluringly sweet fragrances emanating from enticing fruit warmed by the sunlight of the Tuscan countryside. In a symphony that changes like the summer sky, the dance of sensuality begins with unexpected green and acidulous flashes before taking on a warmer, romantic feel with entrancing tuberose notes and delectable peach melodies, followed by reverberations of pure femininity in the unmistakable vibrations of musk.

Scent:
Top notes: green leaves and lotus flowers.
Middle notes: tuberose and white peaches.
Base notes: musk.

Hahaha, I really love how the product introduction was written so I didn’t edit it. 😛 The scent of this EDT is indeed how it was described as above. Sweet, floral, warm, carefree as if I was taking a walk in the nature in a really comfortable temperature that made me feel so relax and breathing in sweet flowers from nature.

Needless to say, I also love  the transparent bottle design with the flower pattern inside the bottle. It makes the whole package looks so natural and sophisticated! Love it!

Style Bliss

Hi hi!! If you are my friend, you will know that I seldom shop online in Singapore Blog Shops! The reason is very simple, I CAN’T FIT THE TINY CLOTHES. *ARGGGGGGHHHHHH* My bust is a 36 inch and most of the Blog Shop only carry sizes up to M which is like 30-34 inch… why so…. slim?!!!!!! 30 inches..i think my waist about there!! lol lol. :’)

So I am very happy that I managed to find many clothing from Style Bliss that can fit me!
Is this a Dress or a Romper?! 😛 Great for both work and casual!

P1170621

 This dress fits so well on me!!!!! The PTP Across: 17.5″ so I have plenty of space to breathe!!! The material of the dress is thick (slightly thinner than that of a blazer), and the design of the open flap makes it looks like  a romper! So the dress looks both smart and cute! Perfect for both work or casual!

P1170625

Also, not to forget the cute trimmings at the ends!! Totally add cute points to you! 😀

P1170627

I wore the dress to THEFACESHOP event and it looks cute with my pink cardigan! XD

P1170553

Style 2

This dress is actually something that I’ll never buy due to its thick material and is shapeless. However, I thought that the design is really unique! Love the front belt design and side trim. To my surprise, the dress actually makes my figure better!! 😀 Check it out!! (Although I am still not slim like other bloggers! 😛 )

P1170805

One good point is also that the dress doesn’t hug my hips tightly and rested nicely so that I can still show off my womanly curves. 😀 😀 😀
