Post Exam Treats - a new bag, perfume and spa

Hello everyone! So last Thursday I finished my A2 exams for good, so as a treat my boyfriend took me to the day spa at Center Parcs in Longleat to completely relax. It is called Aqua Sana, and really is an amazing place to visit.

At Longleat there were 16 'experiences' including rooms such as The Japanese Salt Steam Bath which had a temperature of 45 degrees and 90-100% humidity, and the Finnish Sauna which has a temperature of 70 degrees and 60% humidity (that one was tough!). Afterwards, we were free to explore everything else Center Parcs has to offer, so we went swimming and went for lunch. It was £59 for four hours in the spa for both of us, which I think is a bit of a bargain! If you want more info click here.

Yesterday, we both went to Windsor to do a bit of shopping. Windsor is a great place to go for the day; there are lots of little interesting shops, as well as the infamous Windsor Castle of course. On one of the stalls at the indoor market they were selling loads of lovely hand made leather bags, and one caught my eye in particular.

I adore the colour and the leather is so soft. It kind of reminded me of the Mulberry Bayswater, which I think is another reason why I liked it. The price was £60 but we managed to haggle the price down to £48, which I was really pleased with.

There was also tonnes of room inside which is perfect for me, as I tend to be a bit of a hoarder!

I also bought a new perfume; Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Mandarine Basilic.

Top notes are clementine, orange blossom, ivy, green tea and bitter orange; middle notes are peony, chamomile, mandarin orange and basil; base notes are sandalwood and amber. It is such a beautiful fragrance and is perfect for the summer months.
