Weekly Recap 6 – 12 Mar 2017

Hi there! I hope everyone had a good week. I’m sorry I haven’t been able to comment on everything I wanted to comment on and to get back to everyone who got in touch with me. This is because my company no longer allows people to work from home. I enjoyed my two homeworking days every week because I could start at 6:00 and finish at 14:00 or I could start at 16:00 and finish at midnight – as long as the work was done, everything was fine. And I’ve always (ALWAYS!) been one of the top 5 guys and gals in the entire department (120 people), so you can be sure I always made the most of my homeworking days.

But the good (homeworking) days are over and I have to get up between 5:30 and 6:30 (depending on the ‘shift’ start) every day now. I know many people have it worse, and I know I’ve been lucky that I had the chance to work flexibly in the past. However, I’m not looking for sympathy, I just wanted to explain why I haven’t been in touch with you, my fellow blogging buddies, this week.

Alright, now let’s get to the actual weekly recap. Here’s what I’ve been up to on my blog this week.

NSPA Mango Fragrance Body Mist, NSPA Vanilla Fragrance Body Mist

Hi there! I’ve been using all sorts of NSPA products for quite some time now – shower gels, body butters, body mists… you name it. And today I’m reviewing NSPA’s Mango Fragrance Body Mist and NSPA’s Vanilla Fragrance Body Mist.

NSPA’s Mango Fragrance Body Mist isn’t great. I was hoping it would smell like Boots’ mango fragrance – but it’s nothing like it. NSPA’s mango fragrance isn’t horrible, but it smells rather cheap and synthetic. I’ll pass this body mist on to someone who isn’t that picky with all-over body sprays. 🙂

NSPA’s Vanilla Fragrance Body Mist is decent. I don’t think the vanilla fragrance is particularly special. However, the vanilla scent is pleasant, sweet and a little ‘boozy’. Sometimes I spray it on my scarf or on my husband’s pillow. 🙂 Yes, my husband likes that! I think that, if you like vanilla fragrances in general, you should give this body mist a try!

NSPA products are exclusive to Asda. The body mists are available as 200ml for £3.
