My Secret To Soft Silky Skin This Summer | Palmers Coconut Oil Body Lotion

Palmers Coconut Oil Body Lotion

I used to be one of these people who used to be obsessed with moisturising. Like honestly every morning and every evening without fail, I'd slap on my favourite body butters and lotions. But since having Archie I've found that I've had a lot less time for myself and my skincare routine has pretty much become non existent. The only effort I really make is cleansing my face and taking my makeup off at the end of every night, at least I've got the most important things done, right? By the end of most evenings I'm just too tired to stand there and wait for my favourite body butter to sink into my skin. Skipping out moisturising over the last year or so has really had its effects on my skin and its only since we've been having the warmer weather that I've noticed just how dry and dehydrated my skin has become.

Superdrug Solait Dry Tanning Oil & Tanning Mist | My New Fave Fake Tans

Superdrug Solait Dry Tanning Oil & Tanning Mist

My addiction to fake tan is quite a serious thing, I'm obsessed with it and I hate being pale anytime of year. I know a tan obsession may make you think that I go way over the top, but I promise you I don't go for the tangoed orange look lol. I think I get my tanning addiction from my mum and she let me use her fake tan when I was 15, since then I like my skin to look a few shades darker and I always go for a natural sun kissed glow, unless its in the height of summer then sometimes I'll go for the 'I've been abroad sunbathing for two weeks' kind of tan. I think its fair to say that I've tired and tested my fair share of fake tans and theres a couple out there that I will purchase time and time again; St Moriz I'm looking at you! However over the last few months a new tan on the market has become a new front runner and I'm obsessed with it. If you're addicted to Love Island as much as I am then you will have seen these tans advertised all the time before the show and start of the adverts, because these tans are from Superdrugs own range and they are AMAZING!

Girls With Attitude Marble and Rose Gold Makeup Brushes | Review

Girls With Attitude Marble and Rose Gold Makeup Brushes

I think you guys know now that I think Girls With Attitude have the prettiest makeup brushes around, if you follow me on Instagram (here) you will always see me posting pictures of my GWA makeup brush collection. Well, recently my favourite brush brand released their most Instagramable makeup brushes ever, like honestly they're just goals. We all know Marble and Rose Gold are such a hit with us Instagram babes and these brushes combine the two. Just look at the pictures, you really don't need me to tell you just how beautiful these brushes are and how they just tick every box. The design is so beautiful, I love the marble handles and the Rose Gold hardware is just dreamy; Yep I'm one of those girls who loves Rose Gold Everything. As you can see I'm obsessed with the design and look of these brushes, but over the last month I've been using them non stop and feel that I can give you guys a full review of the collection and let you know just how well I get on with each brush.

Archie's 15 Month Update

It's been ages since I last updated you all on Archie, 5 months to be precise and I'm kicking myself a little bit for leaving things for so long as so much has changed in that time. I love these posts and sharing with you all the things my little bubble is getting up too, but I mainly love these posts because they're great for me to look back on and its almost like a little diary entry. I don't even know where to start as he's come on so much since his 10 month update (here).

The Perfect Father's Day Gifts with Fragrance Direct

Fragrance Direct

The men in my life are so difficult to buy presents for, but I think thats pretty standard for everyone. I've been with my partner James for 14 years now (yes we we're childhood sweethearts) and every Christmas and birthday is so difficult, he is the man who has everything and when it comes to presents its either ridiculously expensive gadgets or some fragrance; I can't even buy him clothes as he's just too fussy. This month is extra special as its Father's Day on Sunday and this will be James' second one since we had Archie, so now I have three occasions in the year that I have to pick my brain and find him the perfect Father's Day gift.

PROVOKE Touch Of Silver Shampoo & Conditioner | Keeping My Blonde Hair Blonde

PROVOKE Touch Of Silver Shampoo & Conditioner

Rewind to this time last year, I made the decision to ditch my dark brown hair and return to my natural mousey blonde hair. It had been a long time since I had seen my natural hair colour, I mean years. I had never been a fan of my natural hair colour so decided to lighten it up a bit and go for a dip dye ombre look as I thought it would be a lot easier to maintain; Roots are not so much of a big deal when you're not dying your hair all over. Going back to blonde was all good in hindsight, but I had forgotten just how much upkeep blonde hair needs. It wasn't long before my blonde started turning a horrible brassy shade of ginger and orange and for the best part of a year I struggled with trying to keep my blonde locks looking good.
