For me photos and travels go hand in hand. I am forever collecting memories in pictures. Yet many of them stay on the photo card or on my hard drive. I mean there really is only so many pictures you can have on the wall or on the mantle. But what about something different? And thats where Darlington Crystals Photo Laser Blocks come in. There are three different designs in two sizes available ranging in price from £45 to £95. Working off of 2D photos Darlington Crystal can create three dimensional keepsakes which are truly beautiful. There is also the option to include engraving if you would like. I was very impressed with how simple the ordering process was. Delivering is super quick at three working days and when it arrived it came nicely packaged in its own gift box. I chose the large rectangle which measures 60mmx60mmx100mm and is ideal for pictures of one to five people.

I always like to take perfume away when I travel. Although I don’t actually wear it at home much. Sometimes I find when you are rushing to get out after a long day sightseeing its a great pick me up.

Described as an exciting enticing, delicate sweet pink fresh floral, fragrance has taken vibrancy to a new level, bursting with a blend of succulent Mandarin, Apricot & Blackcurrant fruits that lead into a flirtatious blend of Caramel with bright floral notes of Jasmine, Rose, Orange Blossom before settling on a delicious dry down of Sandalwood, Amber & Vanilla.
