Barcelona Haul

I recently returned from a fantastic four day break in Barcelona and bought some lovely things that I thought I’d share with you!

This gorgeous green shirt is from Stradivarius and cost around 23 euros which is amazing as i’ve worn it three times and only been back a week! It can easily be dressed up with a necklace and boots or down with light jeans and vans.

These shorts are from a little boutique shop that I stumbled across and I can’t remember the name of it! They only cost 7.99 and are going to be a summer staple with plain t-shirts.

I got this clutch bag from the same shop as I got the shorts and it was only 4 euros. It’s going to be perfect to take on my holiday to Greece as it will go with all of my outfits for both day and night.

I got this face mask from Sephora for around 3 euros and was really looking forward to trying it but I must have done something wrong as it set before I could even apply it!

I also bought these two sheet masks from Sephora as I’ve heard they’re really good. They only cost 1.50 too which is a total bargain.

Hair Of The Day – Tousled Curls!

I recently got even more cut off my hair and am loving it! It’s so easy to style and maintain. Today I decided to sport some soft, barely there tousled curls! Stay tuned for more hairstyle posts in the coming weeks!

All I did was wash my hair with my Alberto Balsam ‘coconut and lychee’ shampoo which I absolutely love as it works so well and is really affordable at £1! Then I sprayed on some of my Dove ‘oxygen moisture root lift spray’ which gives my limp my hair a lot of volume and I applied some argan oil to the ends. After this I took sections around one and a half inches wide and used my GHD straightners to curl the hair in varying directions for a more natural look. After around 5 minutes of letting the curls set I tipped my head upside down and ran my fingers through to loosen them up and sprayed some hairspray to help the style last. Quick and easy – perfect for everyday!

What do you think? Do any of you have any tips for styling short hair?

Garnier Ambre Solaire No Streaks Bronzer Dry Body Mist

Let me start off by telling you how awful I am at applying self tan, I usually end up with patches of orange all over my body with horrendous patchy hands. I gave up a while ago and decided to just apply my beloved Dove ‘summer glow’ gradual tanner whenever I wanted a bit of colour.

That was until one sunny day while I was sitting in the garden desperately trying to get some sort of colour from the sun, reading the latest Look magazine. There was an interview with Michelle Keegan talking about the tan that she uses, and since she’s always so gorgeous and brown I decided to give it a go. I purchased my bottle from Boots where its reduced at the moment to £7.79 from £11.69.

Prior to application I moisturised my whole body with my Soap and Glory ‘The righteous butter’ to ensure that I didn’t have any dry patches and let it sink in. After about 15 minutes I finally applied the dry body mist all over my body, including my face, and let it dry for a few minutes. It felt instantly dry and I didn’t feel sticky at all so I put my pjs straight on and went to bed. The next morning I woke up to bronzed, slightly orange tinted skin but after showering I was left with a gorgeous natural looking even tan. Even my back was perfectly tanned and I really struggled to reach it. I also applied it the next night and was left with an even nicer, deeper colour. I’m now just going to apply it once a week or so to top it up.

 The only thing That I would say is that it can stain the bottoms of your feet (even if you wipe them after application) and its such a fine mist that it can be so easy to apply too much! I would definitely reccomend giving this self tanner a go if your a beginner or are looking to try out something new.

I use the medium shade as I am naturally very pale and thought the dark would be too extreme.

Have any of you tried it yet?

My Top 5 Summer Clothing Items

With the recent hot weather we’ve been having in Britain lately I’ve had the chance to get some use out of the summer clothes I usually only get to wear abroad. So I thought I would share with you my favourite pieces this season.

1.Crop Tops

I’ve been loving wearing crop tops with high waisted shorts/pants/skirts, showing about an inch of my midriff. I think this is extremely flattering and is a lot more subtle if you aren’t someone who could walk around with their whole stomach on show. My favourite crop top is my white lace one from Topshop.

2. Coloured Jeans

I absolutely love coloured jeans, they’re a great way to change up your entire style for the summer months without having to make too much effort. They also come in various styles and colours so there’s a pair to suit everyone. My favourite jeans are these coral skinny ones from Marks and Spencer.

3. Casual dresses

I’ve been loving cotton dresses this season as they’re cool, comfortable and easy to throw on when you don’t know what to wear. They also go just as well with sandals as they do with converse, making them extremely versatile. My favourite is this floral one from Primark.

4. Playsuits

Playsuits are a great alternative to a dress or shorts in the summertime and come in a variety of styles. My favorites are my floral one from Republic and my khaki one from Tkmaxx.

5. Eyelet detail

Eyelet detail looks great on tops and dresses and is extremely girly and delicate. My favourite top with this effect is my white one from Tkmaxx.
