Oh hello, June, where did you come from?  Seriously how is it June already? I'm going to try and make the most of summer this year - despite everything else being rubbish. I'm going to enjoy myself and have fun in the sun. Sound like a good plan, doesn't it? ⠀

Oh hello, June, where did...

I must admit that I did get bored with balcony/mirror outfit pictures and wanted a more nature/organic photos backdrop. Well now summer is right around the corner, and the sun is indeed shining, and with news that lockdown resections are now easing, I now thought it was the perfect opportunity to go out into the wood and show you this floral Zara dress.⠀
I brought this dress at the very beginning of this year and was keen to show you guys this as I think it a lovely summer dress to wear, plus, I also thought it would go nicely with my red hat.⠀
For someone who has been cooped up, I must admit that it was nice to go into my local woodland and to walk around for an afternoon. I think it was also lovely for Richard, my husband, to pick up his camera again and to take some photos. The whole pandemic has put a pause on his professional photographer profession, and he hasn’t needed to use his camera much.⠀
It was lovely to put on a dress and to make myself look a little presentable. It got me out of my loungewear for an afternoon. The experience made me feel a little more like myself, and it put me in a good mood. As much as I like comfy loungewear, I’m still someone who wants to dress up.⠀
I’m hoping I can go out more this summer, of course still observing the social distancing rule, and doing more outdoor outfit photos. I’m also hoping this summer to wear more of my summer outfit and to feel more like myself.⠀

Usually, when I do an outfit post or picture, I like to dress up and show you some pretty dress. But this time I thought I would show you a few of my casual wear and what I wear on a day to day basis. I must admit, as much as I love to dress up, I wouldn't exactly go to Tesco in them. So on a day to day basis, I'm usually in jeans and a top. ⠀

If I were to describe my style, it would be summed up in two words: quirky and fun. I'm sure you realise by now I don't like boring black fashion – I do fun, bright, colourful style. Case in point is this Collectif watermelon dress. You can't get more quirky and fun fashion than this, can you?⠀
I like my clothes to reflect a lot of my personality, eternally youthful while also quirky and fun. Yup, that pretty much summed up me. The saying, you are who you are by the clothes you wear, really does hold up with me.⠀
I'm still that little girl who had a dressing up box as a child and would play dress-up; now I just have a wardrobe filled with more clothes than I could ever need as my dressing up box. I still like to have fun with my clothes, and I haven't lost that childhood wonder about clothes. And I don't think I ever will.⠀
Overall, what I'm saying is that this Collectif watermelon dress reflects who I am as a person and also my style. I also believe it represents how fashion shouldn't be all serious; it should be fun and should put a smile on a person's face.⠀

The Body Shop £20 challenge

 I set myself a little beauty challenge last week, I like to set myself little beauty challenge as It fun for me to see if I can reach my desire target.

This specific challenge was me visiting my local The Body Shop store and to see how much I can buy with just £20. A simple enough challenge doesn’t you think so?

What I did was visited Covent garden last week to put my challenge into action. If you know me, you would know I never turn down a chance to visit Covent Garden. It my favorite part of London and always full of quirky shops, street performers and cupcake cafes.

The Body Shop £20 challenge

I managed my £20 The Body Shop challenge and here are my results. Please note everything you see here is exactly £20. It’s a Bargain if you ask me! I will admit the actual things came to £25 – outside my budget. However, once I put The Body Shop store card through the till, it took £5 off. *phew* I didn’t have to be that awkward customer who have to take things off the bill.  Let me talk you though my purchases.

Spiced Apple Shower Gel – £5

I cannot express how amazing this is! This shower gel smell of fresh green apple picked from the tree. I cannot stop sniffing it. If you’re a fan of fresh fruity scent, then you will love this.

Pink Grapefruit Gel Lotion – £3

This remind me a tropical beach on an exotic island. The smell might be a little over powering for some, but for me – I can’t stop sniffing it. It a sweet punchy smell that linger on the skin after usages.

Mango Cleanse Gel – £2

If you like soft hand that smell lightly of mango, then you will like this cleanse gel. If I’m honest you can barely smell the mango. But using this on your hand will feel clean and soft afterward.

Pink Grapefruit Shower Gel – £2

Another pink grapefruit gel. This isn’t as over powering as the lotion. For me the smell reminds me of a fruit salad on tropical beach.  Once again It a sweet punchy smell that linger on the skin after usages.

Mango Body Whip – £3

This is quite a sweet soft smell. I’m personally not a big fan of mango scented lotion/cream, admittedly I brought this for a gift set I’m doing for my sister in law.

Fuji Green Tea Body Butter- £5

For once, this doesn’t have a smell. Well apart from the standard creamy smell you usually get in body butter. This does look interesting as the ingredient is listed to contain green tea leaves.

Strawberry Soap – £2

I’m sure most of us have tried at least one The Body Shop soap once. This soap is supposed to contain strawberry juice. And if you love the scent of strawberry, then you will love this.

Vitamin E Lip Balm – £5

I always get dry lips at this time of the year so lip balm is a necessary! This will stay in my handbag. I also read that vitamin E is good for the lips.

So that was my challenge, I hope you have enjoyed what I brought. Doing a £20 The Body Shop challenge is easier than you think. The trick is, you just need to be clever with your money.

I am also collaborating with Hannah Slack who also wrote her lifestyle and beauty haul here.

    I also bought that Fuji Green tea body butter and, although it doesn’t smell so amazing as I would like, it is actually really good, leaves the skin soft and smooth without any greasiness. 🙂 Anyway, you bought many nice things, love it. 🙂

    Ooh the body gels and lotions sound so nice. They also look very pretty. I live in the U.S. and we have a shop similar to this called Bath and Body Works. I think I would love to try the Mango-scented gels and lotions you have featured on your list.

    Oooh I like this idea!! I might have to give it a try myself, there is so many things you can buy which can be exspensive which is why I don’t really shop in there but seeing this , it can be done!
