I've been itching to share this video with you for so long and that moment is finally here! Last weekend Darren and I went on a date with a difference. Instead of just settling for our usual haunts (our local Nando's and cinema), we dressed up in our Sunday best and went to the beautiful and much more elegant Hotel du Vin in Winchester.

I've been working in collaboration with Estée Lauder and Modern Muse Le Rouge* which, from the first sniff I knew was going to become a favourite! The scent is rich and comforting with notes of vanilla and musk melded together with a sweeter edge of rose and raspberry for a juicy afterthought. I absolutely love it and along with the beautiful packaging makes for the perfect Date Night fragrance.

Red as a colour has always appealed to me - hello, have you seen my lipstick collection? and I was inspired by Le Rouge to go all out with an absolutely stunning dress from Coast and red heels to match! Roses are also some of my favourite flowers so a bunch delivered to my door pre-date was a lovely start to the evening. We ordered cocktails, chatted until the restaurant was deserted and had a wonderful evening that I can't wait to repeat again!
