Top 5 Tanning Products



Hey Guys! Summer is officially here, well in terms of the seasons I cant promise that the lovely English weather will agree. However it has surprisingly been very sunny at the moment as were having some form of mini heatwave here in the UK and its got me feeling those summer vibes. Although I have naturally very fair skin which unfortunately for me it means I can sit in the sun all i want however the only difference I'm going to see is redness and then not long after ill be back to my pale self again. This is where these beauty's come in I mean I really owe it to the person who created self tan as they are a life saver and due to these little guys I can finally get the bronzed glow Ive been dreaming of.


First up is this gradual tanner by Garnier, I love this one because you have full control on how dark or light you want your tan. As it is a gradual tanner you simply apply this as a moisturiser and the more you apply the darker your tan will be. It also has a apricot scent which is nice as it doesn't smell like your typical self tan. The only negatives I have of this one is that there is no guide colour so application isn't the easiest however as it is gradual tan it isn't too bad as it doesn't go to dark and is very buildable. Also as the formulation is more like a moisturiser it can take a while to sink in to your skin which isn't great if your pushed for time but it not just a bad thing as this also means its hella hydrating for your skin!



Next Up is Dove's summer glow nourishing lotion, This one like the last is also a moisturiser with gradual tanner in it. I personally prefer this gradual tan to the garnier one as it soaks in to the skin just that little bit quicker I also prefer the colour of the tan in this one. This product is an amazing moisturiser and can easily be built up to create a lovely olive-toned tan. The scent isn't too bad it kind of just smells like your average moisturiser, so no weird biscuit smell with this one. Its great if you want to have control of you colour and have some time to work on your tan.




The next tan in my top five is the Bondi Sands Everyday Liquid Gold Gradual Tanning Dry Oil. The main reason I bought this guywas for my holiday as your girls been blessed with the fairest skin possible, so I'm getting a spray tan before I go (Ya know the whole If you cant make it fake it thing) and wanted something to top up my tan whilst I'm out away. I think this will be perfect for this as because its a dry oil it doesn't leave you sticky for ages after application and Its also a lot less dense than a moisturiser. The product has an amazing coconut scent and the colour of the tan is gorgeous. This one can be built up to create a lovely tan on its own or is amazing if you already have tan on and just want to give your tan a little top up. I have heard many good things about Bondi sands as a brand as will be trying the tanning mousse sometime soon.




So runner up is the St Moriz Tanning Mouse. I literally can't believe how good this tan is considering what you pay for it, its mind blowing. I have to say it isn't the best tan in the world but it is soooo reasonably priced and it is still a really good product. The colour is great and with it being a mousse it dries super quickly. Unfortunately you do get that 'fake tan smell' with this one and the tan doesn't seem to last very long on the skin as I find it fades alot when you shower. However if your looking for a cheap tan and are just wanting it for like a night or maybe a weekend I would definitely  recommend this tan.




Finally my top tan is the Freshly Baked London Tanning mousse in the Vanilla Cream scent. GIRL You need this in your life trust me! I can not say a bad thing about this product It smells AMAZING, The colour is perfect, It dries super speedy and It lasts on the skin for quite a while. Freshly Baked London have a whole range of scented tanning mousse from mango to amaretto to baby powder it is so great and I simply want them all. The brand is also cruelty free and they use lots of good ingredients which do wonders for the skin. It also has a guide colour which makes it so easy to apply. I just love love love this brand and there products and would 100% recommend this tan to anyone. You need to try this one out trust me its the perfect tan to get you through the summer months.

Tenerife




Hey Guys, I've recently just touched down back in the UK after my little trip to the gorgeous island that is Tenerife. I had an absolute blast getting away for a week with my buds. We got up to lots of stuff from visiting Siam Park which is Europe's craziest water park, to visiting the Hard Rock Cafe and drinking some amazing cocktails, to being blown away seeing whales and dolphins out doing there thing in the wild whilst chilling on a beautiful boat to killing the game whilst playing mini golf. I genuinely had the most amazing time and would totally recommend visiting Tenerife if you ever get the opportunity its filled with stunning views, lovely people, sunny shorelines and plenty of things to keep you entertained during your time on the island. 
 So on that note I'll leave you with some snaps from my trip.

Summer Bucket List 2017



 So It was the first day of summer this week and it got me thinking about how I don't appreciate summer and the opportunities it brings maybe as much as I should. As an Autumn lover who struggles with hayfever I can sometimes find myself wishing the summer months away counting down the days until the leaves start to fall and my eyes stop burning. However this year I have really been hit by the realisation of how fast time flies after getting my first job and working my life away. So I have decided that this year onwards I really want to make the most of my time regardless of the season and just generally have a great time because life's too short to not do the things you love. So in order to make the most of my summer this year Ive put together a little list of things I hope to do during the sunny summer months, well maybe not the sunny part as I am In the UK after all but I guess we can hope the sun will make an appearance.

Travel a Little (Or Hopefully A Lot)
So first up on my summer bucket list is of course Travelling! I mean who doesn't want get out and explore the world a little. I would love to visit lots of new places this summer and make some amazing memories. I'm actually jetting off to Tenerife on Monday (Eeeeeek!) to kick start my travels of 2017 and I literally cant wait, Also I will be putting together a little post about my trip when I'm back so keep your eyes open for than my lovelies.

Go To A Festival
Next of my summer plans is to hit up a festival. I've actually made this possible for myself this year and have booked my Tickets! (Finally!). I'm going to Leeds Festival at the end of August, unfortunately I'm not camping this year as I have a few things going on that weekend, However I will be attending both Friday and Saturday and it should be amazing. I'm so excited to get my glitter on and see all of the amazing acts.

Plenty of Picnics & BBQ's
The one thing that I do love about summer is BBQ's and Picnics. Mainly because they consist of some of my favourite things such as friends, family, food and Pimms Pitchers. So on that note I will hopefully be attending quite a few of these during the summer months.

Blog a Ton
Ive dabbled here and there in blogging over the past few years but I have really got in to it this year and I want to make really make the most of it. Therefore expect plenty of posts throughout the summer and hopefully just from now on in general. I'm so ready for cute summer posts and to blog my heart out this year.


So that's some of the things on my summer bucket list I hope you enjoyed the read.

Current Fashion Faves!

Hey Guys!
So today I thought I'd do a little post on some fashion bits I've been loving recently. I've loved these items to death since I've had my hands on them. 

So first up Its my denim jacket. This is hands down my go to jacket for the summer I picked my one up from Forever 21 last summer and I have basically lived in it since. I love that its so effortless and just looks quite edgy. I also love how over sized this jacket is as I feel like it is so comfortable but it looks so cool and put together. I feel like this jacket adds a little something to any outfit and its so easy to style. Its probably my favourite clothing buy of 2016!


Next up are graphic tee's I have loved this trend as I feel they are once again so easy to style and they have such an impact on an outfit. I also love that they can be dressed up or down very easily. I got this gorgeous graphic piece from New Look for about £13 and it is honestly amazing it has a cut out, choker style neck, distressed ripped details and GLITTER! I mean what more could you ask for it is such an amazing shirt. 


Finally my purse now this is genuinely one of the best things I have ever spent my cash on. It is stunning. It is a pearlecent, scalloped mermaid style purse from skinny dip and I honestly don't think there will ever be a purse I love more than this little guy. I picked mine up in the Topshop in York however it is a skinny dip purse so you may be able to find it there. I also picked up a pompom key chain from primark and added it to the zip and I love it. I couldn't actually find the link to this one guys I'm sorry but I'm sure if you have a look around there will be similar ones floating about.

Ebay Swimwear- Honest Review

Hey Guys!
I've noticed that theres a bit of a trend floating around on the web recently where everyone seems to be buying cheap things from eBay and seeing if there actually any good. Now whilst I was looking through my holiday clothes prepping for when I jet off in July I came across the swimwear items I had bought from eBay last year for my holiday to try out and this made me think I want to share my experience when buying eBay swimwear and what my thoughts were. As I wasn't expecting to post when I bought these items I don't have the links to the exact listings I bought them from so I have done my best to find a similar listing and linked it below but obviously the delivery time, service and product may be slightly different as they are not the sellers I used.


 
So the first thing I ordered was this lovely one piece. Now this was the main reason I took to eBay for my swimwear as last year when I was off on my holibobs. I knew that we would be heading to a water park so thought a one piece might be the best shout when hitting the slides because lets be honest we all have that annoying fear that our bikini top will fly off down the slide leaving us exposed and embarrassed for the whole park to see. So I thought eBay would be the best place as I didn't think I would wear it too much and it was bound to be the cheapest. I was so surprised when this came it came super fast and the quality was amazing and its actually very similar to one I saw in Topshop. The straps are detachable and the fabric is such a good standard and isn't see through at all. I love the scalloped detailing and the black high waisted effect panel is so flattering. I absolutely love this costume and will be taking it away with me again this year.

This next bikini was actually the most disappointing for me which makes me so sad as the pattern is sooooo cute. However the sizing is just completely off! The bottoms are literally tiny like they do not fit me at all, but the top just baffles me as the cups are the perfect size for me but the top itself is just really wide and is huge and doesn't even stay up on me. the back of this top is also not adjustable so there is no way for me to make this one work. Its really sad though because the quality once again other than the sizing is actually surprisingly good and the pattern is lovely. So on that not I would be very careful with sizing when ordering from eBay.


Pineapple Bikini



Finally this is the last bikini I got, This one you wrap around yourself and tie it at the back. I LOVE this one its really great as both the bottom and top can be adjusted to fit you just right as you just tie them to the tightness that suits you. The quality of this one is also amazing and it just looks so flattering on. I love the wrap around effect as it is something different to all my other bikinis. This was also so affordable as I know I didn't pay over £5 for this one and I just have nothing bad to say about it. It came quickly and the quality is lovely so what more could you want really. I was so so happy with this one.
