Jo Malone London | Wild Blueberry Body Cream



My flight last night was delayed. Midnight I was still at Amsterdam Airport. It didn’t land until half 1 in the morning. So I’ve had to rush to the airport this morning, to catch my flight to Rome. Today’s Jo Malone Advent Calendar is Wild Blueberry body cream. I ended up using the Jo Malone Wild Blueberry body cream, as a hand cream. It smells nice, but am not sure I could justify spending £54 (full size) on body cream. The small Advent Calendar size, is handy for traveling. I’ll have to try it out more, when I have more time.

Jo Malone London | Earl Grey And Cucumber Cologne


Hi everyone, am about to head to the airport. So I’ll quickly show number 7 of the Jo Malone Advent Calendar. Today is Earl Grey and Cucumber Cologne. I’ve just sprayed it before heading to the airport. I actually like this one, it smells kind of fruity. I’ll probably ruin it, as when I walk through Duty Free at the airport I spray all the perfumes haha.

Jo Malone London | Frosted Cherry And Clove Candle




I have been put off visiting places, where English isn’t the first language. After visiting Denmark yesterday it changed my view, on visiting other countries. It was the first time traveling on my own, to a country where English isn’t the first language. I was feeling nervous about traveling, to a country non-English speaking country on my own. I kept thinking do I point at things, if I need anything ? Or what do I do ? I got the tram from the Copenhagen airport into the city. I saw the word “fart” I laughed and took a photo with my phone. The guy opposite said “that’s a good photo”. I said oh I was taking a photo of the word fart, as it means different in English. I was shocked how clear his English was. I replied “where are you from ?”. He replied “Denmark and where are you from ?” I replied “Scotland”. He said “oh wow you don’t sound Scottish”. I just laughed, as I didn’t think he was Danish. I would say about 80% of Danish, speak in English. The only time I was spoken to in Danish, was in Sephora. The worker started speaking and I knew it wasn’t English. I was about to say “sorry I don’t speak Danish”. I said the word “sorry” and she soon jumped and quickly said “hi is there anything you’d like help with ?. I was impressed how quickly, she managed to change language. It was nice seeing, Nyhavn and The Little Mermaid Statue. Danish people are the friendliest people, I have came across and willing to speak English. I felt like I was in my home country (Scotland), with everyone speaking English. The only down side with Denmark, it’s the home of LEGO and there was no LEGO products with “Copenhagen” on it. The London LEGO Store had t shirts and other things with “London Leicester Square”.

So number 6 of the Jo Malone Advent Calendar, is Frosted Cherry and Clove candle. My first Jo Malone candle was the Pine And Eucalyptus. They are expensive, so I put off buying it at first. As they are expensive, I would only buy myself another for a special occasion. As I treated myself to the Advent Calendar, I’ll be getting to try a few over December. The second I pulled out the drawer of number, I knew it was a candle. I could smell the cherry. I lit it up for a photo, but you can smell the candle with or without lightening it. It has that winter smell, which makes it even more Christmas - y.

Jo Malone London | English Pear And Freesia Cologne



Am guilty to judge things by how catchy they sound or if it looks nice. Number 4 of the Jo Malone Advent Calendar is English Pear and Freesia. Reading the words “English Pear”, it wouldn’t be something I would go to pick up in a shop. It’s not how I imagined the smell. It smells fresh and not too powering. It’s really light scented, compared to some of the Jo Malone scents I’ve tried. It could quite possible be one of my favourite Jo Malone scents. It’s just a shame the wording doesn’t sound catchy for me to remember it.

Jo Malone London | Orange Bitters Cologne


It’s December so am going to start by saying I started Danielle UK, just over a year ago and it’s had over 100,000 views. How crazy is that ? Who’d have thought that many people would stop by ?. It was getting nearer, so I set myself a target to get to 100,000 before New Year. It was nice waking up to 100,000 page views. I’ve noticed the views go up dramatically. since I wrote about traveling. You may see some more travel posts coming soon, as I have a few trips planned this month. Also I was given a gift card last year and I have felt guilty, not being able to use it and I wouldn’t want to waste the persons money. Today I finally used up the card and got a Nando’s (lemon and herb chicken, peri peri chips and peas, incase you’re wondering haha). 

Am going to be showing you what’s in the Jo Malone Advent Calendar, everyday until Christmas Eve. Starting of with the first of December, (today) I got Orange Bitters Colone. I found it really strong, which could be all in the name of “bitters”.. I think it would smell nice on a man. Jo Malone is unisex, but I would say this is the man scent. I’d maybe wear this if I was heading somewhere and wanted the smell to last. I find the stronger Jo Malone scents, last longer. 

The advent calendar Orange Bitters Cologne is 9ml, so it’s a perfect size for traveling in hand luggage.

Jo Malone London Pine and Eucalyptus Candle


 The Pine and Eucalyptus candle, has that Christmas smell to it. The smell would make a good alternative, if you didn't want a real Christmas tree.
