July Faves

*This is a scheduled post as I'm on holiday :)*
Hello, its that time already! Here is what I have been loving in this HOT!?!! July ...


This month these have been a necessity because of the heat, my absolute favourite has to be the Magnum Almond Lollies, they are just so freakin good and dreamy. I've also been loving lemonade ice lollies as they are so refreshing, perfect for these strangely high temperatures!

2. Tom Fletcher's youtube channel

In case you didn't know he is from the band Mcfly, who I loved alot when I was around 12/13! His most watched video is his wedding speech, which just has to be one of the most romantic and cute videos on youtube, if he doesn't have you in tears watching this, I am not sure you are human. He regularly uploads covers of songs, and quite reguraly his joined by his wife Gi. I can't rave about this channel enough!

3. The 2nd Law - Muse
I may have got this for my Dad's birthday, but that doesn't mean I'm not allowed to listen to it! My faves on the album are Supremacy and 2nd Law: Unsustainable.

4. The Londoner
(from her blog)

I am loving this blog as the moment, it really shows how the other half live haha! Her life is soo dreamy, I don't really know why I read it to be honest, it brightens my day and makes me happy!

Travel Beauty Bits

Hello, when you are reading this I will be on my way to Cornwall, I'll be staying in a gorgeous house, the only downfall is the lack of wifi! If you're interested I'll be tweeting what I am up to, and hopefully I'll have lots of holiday related posts up next week!

On a quick side note something I've found handy for inspiration is Anna from Vivianna Does Make up has done a whole series on beauty packing and I highly suggest you take a look - LINK

The Makeup!
Max Factor Smooth in beige, Natural Collection Lip Balm and translucent powder, Rimmel glamour eyes mascara and scandal eyes kohl, Revlon photo ready concealer, MUA heaven and earth palette and finally some cheapy brushes.

Simple Witch Hazel Exfoliating wash, Liz Earle cleanse and polish, Vichy Micellar Water and Moisturiser and Ren Night Cream sample
Soap and Glory Breakfast Scrub and Smoothie Star Body Milk, a Shower Gel, Garnier After Sun, Lancome Flash Bronzer!

Packing tips
1. You don't need to buy minis, keep small empty bottles and sample bottles to decant product into, without spending extra money, and most importantly SAVE SPACE!
2. If you're going in a group you don't all need to bring duplicates. For example you don't all need to bring after sun, be friendly and share, only one person needs to bring it, do the same with sun cream, insect repellent etc.

3. Be super duper organised. Plan ahead what you're going to pack, if you don't you are more likely to forget things, and pack unnecessary things you won't need.

Ready to go!!

Hope you enjoyed reading this post!

Summer Lovin'

Hello! I feel I haven't been very present on here but that's because I seem to always be busy so the blog takes a back seat. I've mainly been enjoying the glorious weather here in the UK, but all good things must come to an end, and it looks like the heatwave maybe starting to finish :(

Preparing the table for the bbq

I thought I'd just let you know the kinda thing I have planned over the summer to put up on here! Next week I'm going on Holiday so thought I'd do a bunch of lifestyley sort of posts, I'm going to bath and Cornwall so they'll be really nice I hope, I'm also going to do a packing post (which I'm currently mid way through), I thought I'd do some holiday outfits, I'm also heading off to London so there'll be some London related posts, and finally I'm gonna get back into baking so hopefully they'll be some recipes pop up to!

Summer OOTD

Hello guys! I hope you've been enjoying the lovely weather over the past few days :)

I think this dress is lovely, especially as I didn't pay a penny for it, Harriet gave it to me as it was slutty on her, but due to my lack of height it comes down to a perfectly decent length! Looking at this picture i'm so pleased with how my hair is growing, soon I shall be satisfied with the length :)

London Wishlist

Hello! There has been abit of a gap between posts, that is because despite the end of the exam season I still seem to be busy :(

In just over a month Harriet and I are heading down to London, I've started saving for it now I've paid my parents back and myself (don't ask!). There are 2 reasons I go to London 1.Seeing a musical 2. Shopping! We are planning to do both here are a few things I have my eye on!

3. Katy Tee 
4. Addison Leggings

1. Harriet has been raving about Gilly Hicks for about a year now, and its about time I went! I think these are totally hilarious, and they're an essential item of clothing!

2. Victoria's Secret is raved about on youtube by americans, and since there's now a UK store I want to get my hands on something!

3. + 4. I here a lot about Monki from Londoners, I always really like what they get. Tee's and Leggings are basically my favourite thing, so these would slot in to my wardrobe rather nicely!

Thanks for reading

Summery Dress


I found this picture chillin' on my laptop but have never uploaded it for some reason! As the weather is getting hotter now seems like the perfect time!

I love this dress it is super flattering for my body type, I like the lace detailing, the pastel colours and the pattern. Despite the weather it has already been worn quite a few times!

30 Day Snap #29 and 30 mission complete

Hello, this is a day later than planned opps!

Day 29
I went to the University of Surrey open day in Guildford, despite my 4.30am wake up I had a really nice day! I loved the Uni, the course I'd like to do at GSA and I really liked the surrounding area!
Day 30 Mission Complete!
Yesterday I had a quiet Lunch shift at work, then afterwards this is what met me and my brother met on our walk, then to finish of a lovely day I headed to the pub with my friend for a catch up!
I've enjoyed this challenge, but as you may have noticed I've struggled to keep up just abit, and to find something interesting from my mundane life!
Thanks for popping by, normal service will resume soon!

*July Wishlist*

Hello! Here's to a sunny month, please?? The 30 Day Snap has finished, I found it really hard I missed a couple of days out but I'm glad I did it! Onto the post...

1. One of the girls at dancing had some shoes like this, and I really liked them! I think they could add abit of edge to a floaty summery dress look.

2. At the moment I'm loving just being comfy, this top is in keeping with the american varisity look which is making its way through our highstreet.

3. These sunnies are amazing, need I say anymore?

4. I've always 'ummed' and 'ahhed' about the classic denim jacket, but since half my drama class turned up in them the other day, I now know I want one!
