Hey guys! It has been so sunny and lovely these few days in the UK. How was your weekend? Did you stroll through the park to get some tan? I have been doing a bit of shopping online and on the high streets as I have been rather stressed and frustrated with my final major project and my unknown future. Retail Therapy brings happiness right? First here is my Gilly Hicks & MyVitamins Haul:
Basic Slim Cami £4.25 each – Navy and White
Long-Line Lace Bralette £3.99 – White
Long-Line Lace Bandeau £6.99 – Navy
GH Sport Legging Crop £18 – Navy (really nice leggings that has a mesh area near the knee area)
GH Sport Yoga Short £16 – Navy
GH Sport Keyhole Tank £18 – Light Pink
Total CLA & Total Green Tea Extract
Total CLA (Conjugated Lunoleic Acid) £9.49/120 Softgels: a supplement that reduces body fat by increasing basal metabolic rates, encouraging the body to transform stores of fat into usable energy, hence reducing total fat stores.
Total Green Tea Extract £5.49/90 Tablets: Green Tea’s antioxidant properties can help rid the body of harmful free radicals. Reducing free radical activity can have an extremely positive effect on healthy ageing, immune function and other important bodily functions.
I have been taking these for the past 2 days so I will update soon again to see if they have helped with my physique or not.
Phil Smith Total Retreat Argan Oil Cream (hair) £4 : I got a travel sample of this a year ago from a magazine and I much prefer this to the Moroccan Oil I bought in Marrakech and the Moroccan Oil brand. With the oils, if I accidentally pour a bit too much to my hair, it becomes too oily/shiny and stays in my hair until I wash my hair next. You only need a small pea size drop on your damp hair each time and I believe this tube will last me a couple of months.
Maybelline Baby Skin Pore Eraser Primer £7.99 (Superdrugs is doing and offer for buy 1 get the 2nd half price): Very similar to the Benefit Porefessional but this is a translucent gel that works as well as the Porefessional or even better and it is half the price!
Piz Buin Tan & Protect Tan Accelerating Oil Spray and Tan Intensifying Sun Spray £18 each (Buy one get one free at boots): I have only used th Piz Buin Dry Tanning Oil last year where i purchased it while I was in Greece and unfortunately I couldn’t find it in the UK :/ So I bought this instead as they were on offer and hopefully I can get a tan. Victoria Secret’s Tropical Nights Fresh Berries & Hyacinth Fragrance Mist: I didn’t purchase this and I was given this from a friend when she was in the states. It has a lovely fresh, fruity smell without being too sweet which is perfect for summer. I have also ordered more things from ASOS and LookFantastic. I will post them on the blog when I get them, hopefully by the end of this week. Here is a song I had been looping for the most of yesterday. A acoustic guitar cover of John Legend’s “All of Me” by my lovely friend Jude Tsang and her friend Sam Lau. (don’t forget to check out their channels)
