Do you ever fancy treating yourself to a new perfume, but you have no idea where to start? Finding a perfume you love can be tricky, especially when there is so much choice out there. If you’re shopping online, it’s even harder to know which perfume you would like. That’s why many perfume brands these days offer sample sets so you can try out their range before committing to a full-sized bottle.

This is the case with Electimuss, a luxury fragrance brand based in London. I was gifted their Discovery Selection Box which contains 20 perfume samples from their range. I decided to work my way through the perfumes, using one at a time until I’d tried them all. I’ll take you through my experience, but first, here’s a little more information about Electimuss.

If you are in the process of looking for your first home, you’ll know how stressful the experience can be. 

You’ll have to go through the process of viewing properties, speaking to estate agents, filling out paperwork, and dealing with mortgages. But perhaps the most anxiety-inducing part of the home-buying process is the cost. A house is generally the most expensive thing you will ever buy in your lifetime. And house prices have increased dramatically over the years. It is harder and harder for first-time buyers to get a leg up on the property ladder.

As long as you plan ahead and are smart with your money, you could be living in your dream home in no time at all. To help you achieve this major milestone, here are three tips to help you save for your first home. Home, Long, Tips, One, Lifestyle, Dream, Lifetime, Save, Smart

Life can be unpredictable, and with it comes many situations in which we need to broach difficult topics and make firm decisions to move forward.
