Hi Everyone

Happy Friday! Hope you all having a great day. Its a great day today, its my baby sisters 30th Birthday today! Can’t believe she is 30 already! We are celebrating tonight with a dinner with family.

Today i’m sharing with you, two perfumes i picked up from the newly opened Miniso store in Canal Walk. I had previously been to another store so i knew what to expect. But i love all the new stuff they have.

I picked up a Peony and Bamboo perfume as well as a British Pear and i love both. When i googled to find out more about these perfumes sold at Miniso, people are saying that the Peony & Bamboo is a dupe for Jo Malone Peony & Blush Suede and British Pear is a dupe for Jo Malone’s English Pear & Freesia. I can’t honestly say as i’ve never owned a Jo Malone fragrance
