A Personal Post | Life Lately



Hi Lovelies! I kind of wanted to just do a little catch up post about my life lately. I always feel hesitant to do posts such as these because I sit and think to myself, is anyone bothered? Who cares about my life? But then I suppose if you're here reading this you must be and if not then it doesn't matter really!

Wishlist | Holiday Clothes

Instagram Photo - Sunglasses and Bikini Both Ebay

Hi Lovelies! My holiday is fast approaching and even if it wasn't, the weather is FINALLY warming up and I'm ready to throw on some colourful and skin baring outfit's. My limbs are ready and oiled up, I just need to buy a whole new wardrobe... (if Ryan and Lloyd's will let me) so this is the kinda stuff i'm eyeing up gals!






Crochet Mini Dress - Pretty Little Thing

Crochet Crop Top - Missguided 



Floral Skater Dress - Pretty Little Thing





If you're anything like me (or you just live in England) then you might not want to spend a small fortune on holiday clothes because lets be honest, I won't be wearing them much upon my return to Manchester and the short summer we get in England. These picks are all so affordable and all of these website's have some amazing holiday shop sections that make is so easy! 

Which of these are you eyeing up?

Lifestyle | Four Things I Couldn't Live Without



Hii Lovelies, I almost captioned this post 'what's in my bag' but then I realised that my bag is 95% receipts and hair grips so... I can't see that making for a nice piece of photography can you?

So this is essentially a 'what's in my bag under the mountain of receipts' post as when I had a good look through I came to realise that on a day to day basis I am surprisingly low maintenance! Shocker!


Tangle Teezer. 

WHAT did I ever do before these? I've owned numerous Tangle Teezer's now over the years and whole heartedly refuse to use another brush. Years of bleaching my hair platinum when I was 15 has made my scalp, to this day so sensitive and the thought of trying to tug a normal brush through my hair, or god forbid A COMB makes me want to peel my own skin off like a snake (okay that's too far and slightly gross but you get the severity of the scalp situation right?!). If you don't own one of these, where have you been!!?? They glide through your hair from root to end and tackle even the biggest of tangles with absolute ease and dreaminess. I heard that these first appeared on Dragon's Den years ago and got turned down! Ludicrous!!

Lip Balm/Gloss. 

I'm saying this as a general category as I have about nine in my bag at all times. The Philosophy Kiss Me Tonight Lip Therapy is the one I reach for most mornings as it is great at prepping your lips for the day. Dry lips will be the death of me, I hate them and this weather is forever challenging me, but this little pot of goodness usually does the trick. For colour I have been loving the Rimmel London Kate Moss Nude Lipstick in the shade 54 or Mac x Ellie Goulding Without Your Love. Contrary to every other Matte Lipped Beauty Blogger out there Glossy Lips are my fave always.

iPhone 6s Plus

So I legit couldn't last like 5 minutes without my phone. My day consists of  the Instagram Explore Page and daft Facebook videos and I wouldn't have it any other way. Yea sure I could definitely do with a few days off a month where I switch it off and leave it alone, but it makes me feel connected. I'll forever be thankful that we can easily get in touch with people all over the world 24/7 and blogging has allowed me to connect with so many lovely people. Simple things like nice Instagram comments make my day you lovely people! Sad I know but it's the little things.

Sunglasses

It's official i've gone sunglasses mad. Since when did they become an obsession of mine and why can I not stop buying and wearing them. Summer is approaching and all that, so sunglasses are slowly becoming something that we need to hand and I forever have a pair in my bag and a pair in my car. Ebay is my go to for sunglasses because A) This girl loves a bargain  and B) They always have great dupes for designer pairs. I recently got two pairs of the Dior 'So Real' Style Sunglasses from Ebay in Silver and Rose Gold and they are my absolute faaaaaves that feature weekly on my Instagram.

Beauty | St Tropez Gradual Tan


Hi Lovelies! Surpriseeeeee another Fake Tan review. I'm sorry but I just can't live an un-tanned lifestyle, i've said it before and i'll say it again, I sooo wish I suited a pale complexion and red lipsticks but y'know you can't have everything can you and I don't suit it. Anyhuuuu I have done posts on numerous fake tans, you can see them here and here and this is another new beauty that has been added to my collection and will be here to stay.

Introducing St Tropez Tinted Gradual Tan. It's technically a light instant tan that develops over time/night and is suppppppper moisturising.  If an instant tan and a gradual tan had a baby this would be the result.  What I love the most about this being tinted is that it is so easy to apply with minimal risk of turning out streaky as you can see exactly where it's going as it creates a lovely light glow on first application.

The colour is beyond gorgeous and natural and I've been starting Mondays, using every other night and by the weekend I have a lovely deep tan that is streak free and shocker, NO fake tan smell!!! It fades even and a good scrub takes off any patchy bits with ease.

The only bad thing I can say is that the product is a little on the thick side so it can take a little elbow grease to apply but it's not a deal breaker for me it just means you need a little time to work it in. Other than that I am soo impressed and it is so much better then their original gradual tan. Well done St Tropez!!

Would you try this Fake Tan?

OOTD | White Jeans Weather?









White jeans were my go to throughout the summer months last year and as soon as autumn hit they were thrown in the wardrobe and forgotten about . However, recently I have literally been itching to have a boxing match (you know when you try and pull something from the back of your wardrobe and it all starts falling out, so you have to push frantically in all directions to ensure every item of clothing you've ever owned doesn't fall out) with my wardrobe and dig deep to drag them out again, but is it time? And do I still even like them? There was only one way to find out and that was to squeeze the bad boys on and throw a casual spring day outfit together.

Conclusion: I still love my white jeans. They're a little more 'this time of year' but still 'not quite ready to bare limbs time of year'.

I also just started up a YouTube Channel as it's something I have wanted to do for SO long but the thought terrified me, anyway i'm all about stepping out of that comfort zone and all that so if you have time to give my first ever video a watch I would be forever grateful!



Thanks Lovelies! xx
