Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess perfume dupe

One of my all time favourite perfumes is the limited edition (original) Bronze Goddess by Estee Lauder which is released each year during the summer and tends to sell out pretty quickly making it a bit of a nightmare to get a hold of. This year I have found myself on a tighter budget and, not that I have ever been big into buying perfume for myself, have been a lot less willing to splurge on it. So when searching for a cheap perfume that I could throw in my handbag everyday I came across "Golden Treasures EDT" in H&M,  I forgave the hideously cheesy name and not so glamorous packaging spritzed the tester and without much hope realised that it was an exact dupe for Bronze Goddess, hashtag excitedface-happydance-claplikeaseal!! (oh dear step away from the diet coke Natalie!!!)

Golden treasures £4.99 30ml H&M

This is such a Summery scent, lasts a surprisingly long time on the skin for an EDT and exactly like Bronze Goddess its virtually impossible to describe without using the word holiday (or Coconutty which is apparently not a word :/ ) and although Summer is nearly over this is the sort of fragrance that makes me happy all year round. If you're a fan of scents that remind you of summer and holidays aswell and are either on a budget, have been out of luck getting hold of the original Bronze Goddess or just want a cheapy chuck in your handbag perfume then it's definitely worth picking up a bottle.

Have you got any 'Coconutty' perfume recommendations?

Hello there...

Wow its been such a long time since I last posted! A few crappy things that I wont bore you with contributed to this at the beginning of the year, then I moved house got a new job and boyfriend and when I finally decided I was settled, happy and ready to get back to blogging I realised that I had gone and lost my domain name and couldn't for the life of me figure out how to get it back I thought my blog had disappeared forever! Fortunately last night I managed to pull my brain out of my arse and work out that I could simply revert it back to blogspot and just like magic my post's appeared in front of me and so here I am feeling slightly self concious and nervous to be writing posts again what's that all about??
  I realised that it has been 8 months since I last posted anything and as most of you cosmetic crazies know 8 months is a long time to collect an obscene amount of new beauty products which fortunately means that I shouldn't be short of  material while I'm finding my blogging mojo again! 
Anyway I Just wanted to say a quick hello again and to really thank you all so much for sticking around I really mean that! And for all of your lovely welcome back comments on Twitter they mean so much!!
