DSC_3623

Hey!!

I apologise for the influx of reviews lately, I am trying to squeeze some exciting content in before LifeThroughTSG gets all festive for blogmas!

Anyway, today my blogging dreams came true because….. *drumroll*…..

bakerdays agreed to send me a personalised cake, in exchange for this review!

YES PEOPLE, I got cake in exchange for blogging. BEST. DAY. EVER.

If you follow me on socials, you may know that it was my friend Charlotte’s birthday last week. So, when bakerdays asked if I’d like to try a cake, I thought why not dedicate it to her?! My instructions to the lovely Emma at bakerdays were to make it for Charlotte’s 20th birthday, but that she could be as cheeky as she liked, as she offered to make me a custom design! bakerdays do have a fab range of designs already on their website which you can personalise, but they also have a photo upload option if you’re looking for something really unique. So, let’s see what she came up with….

Cute, right?! To be honest, I think this cake just sums up our friendship perfectly- haha!

Letterbox cakes really are just that. They’re made specifically to fit through the letter box, so they’re perfect for those last minute occasions when you accidentally forget someone’s birthday (oops). They’re also perfect for long distance friendships/relationships.. not seeing them on their birthday? Send them cake! (I know I’d really appreciate that anyway).

The cake arrives in this cute little tin, which I am definitely going to keep. I don’t know what I’m going to put in it yet, but I feel like it’s definitely going to come in handy for cake storage!

It also comes with a little birthday pack including a few balloons, some candles and a party tooter- perfect for a little birthday celebration!

I absolutely just adore this cake from baker days, and it tastes fab too! I’d definitely recommend them if you’re looking to send someone a cake or even just get someone a really nice, personalised cake. As well as the letter box size (£14.99), they also have small party cakes (£27.99), medium cakes (£37.99), and large cakes (£57.99). Flavours range from traditional sponge, to chocolate chip, even to marble cake for any occasion, such as Christmas, holy communion, birthdays, eid, halloween, engagement, new home AND MORE.

And, bakerdays don’t just stop at cakes! They also sell personalised cup cakes, which are really adorable, and they sell personalised balloons. AND they do dairy-free, gluten-free and wheat-free options, how amazing! Essentially, they’re your one-stop-shop for the perfect celebration, for any event!

Matching Your Fragrance To The Month? Secret Scent Box Review! INCLUDING DISCOUNT CODE*

Hello, hello, hello!

Today I’m going to be telling you all about my new discovery, Secret Scent Box.* This is a monthly subscription box that costs just £15 (with free delivery)! And, for the price you get 3 designer fragrances delivered through your door every 30 days (don’t worry about being in, the box fits through the letter box!).

Secret Scent Box were kind enough to send me their November box ‘for her’ in exchange for a review, so, without furtherado, let’s see what there lay inside…

So, inside the box we have:

  1. Ghost- Girl
  2. Burberry- Touch
  3. Dolce and Gabbana- The One

These are all 3ml each, and they come in these handy little sprays so that you can spray away and smell good all day! They’re also perfect for the hand bag, should you require a little midday touch-up.

I’ll be honest, when I first received the box, I did expect the actual sprays to be much bigger. However, once I sprayed them, I realised that they’re actually all really concentrated, so you only need one or two sprays and you’re good to go! Their website says that the amounts are enough for 30 days with around 4 sprays a day, so that means your fragrance is sorted for the month!

I am usually really picky when it comes to fragrances, but I actually would wear all three of these fragrances. The One by Dolce and Gabbana is my favourite of the three, as it’s top notes include peach and bergamot, two scents which I really like.

Touch by Burberry is definitely more of an evening/night fragrance as it has earthy base tones like cedar wood and oak moss, evoking a much more intimate scent that I would only wear for special occasions.

In contrast, Girl by Ghost is a lot more of a day time fragrance, I would say, as with the fruity scents of pomegranate, pear and raspberry along with the floral notes, it is a very light but lovely scent.

I also really like that a little card is included for each fragrance. These details the top, middle and base notes of each fragrance, as well as a little description. This is a really nice touch!

These fragrances are definitely very suitable to the month of November, and I really love that this is a way of constantly changing up your scent, without having to spend a lotttt of money purchasing 3 designer fragrances every month! I also like the element of surprise, because it means that you get to discover new brands and fragrances constantly.

All of the fragrances are 100% authentic, and are sourced from authentic suppliers. Who wouldn’t love having a different 3 designer fragrances to try every month?! This could also be a fantastic gift idea for a fragrance lover, as it’s a gift that keeps on giving!

If you’d like to purchase a Secret Scent Box, you can get a 15% discount by using code ‘LIFETHROUGHTSG15‘ at the checkout!**

What do you think of this subscription box- yay or nay? Let me know in the comments!

Love,
