My Week In Photos 4

Last week I was gifted with a couple of days off from work so I did a little exploring around my local area in the sunshine (read: blistering sweaty gross makeup ruining heat).

On Saturday, Calum and I took lunch (Boots meal deal hell yes) to eat in my local park under the shade of the trees, it was lovely to see children learning to ride bikes and families playing in the sun.

Coral Crush

I've been keen to delve into the world of 'coral' beauty products for a while now and what better time to try out a bright new shade than summer. I took a trip to Superdrug and by sheer coincidence, two products of the same name caught my eye. I picked up a Revlon Colourburst Lip Butter in the shade 'Juicy Papaya' and a Barry M Gelly Nail Paint, also in the shade 'Papaya'. I also bought a MUA lipstick in the shade 16 Nectar which appears to have the exact same hue.

Trying Green Tea

In a bid to get healthier, I've jumped on the green tea bandwagon. I know I'm a bit late to this party but oh well. Starting from this week, I'm going to try to drink a cup or two every day for the next month to see if it's worth the hype surrounding its health benefits. Experts claim these range from building up your immune system to reducing breakouts, although they say that about a lot of things. At the end of the two weeks I'll update you if I've noticed any changes.

My Week In Photos 3

Much to my dismay, there has been a heatwave in England over the last week. I like being warm, don't get me wrong. What I don't like is stepping outside at 5:30pm and almost fainting in the 28 degree heat. Due to my ghostly pale skin I don't really tan, I burn nicely though! I braved the sauna that is the great outdoors for a few hours but mostly hid inside my house waiting for the inevitable end of the world. 

My friends and I  went for a picnic at Rutland Water as we all had the day off work, there
were barely any people there on a Friday lunch time so it was really peaceful.

Vaseline Spray and Go Body Moisturiser | Review

I confess, I'm a bit of a slacker when it comes to moisturising my body. It's always seemed like so much effort to have to smear lotion over my entire body (especially my legs which are about a mile long) and flap around for ages waiting for it to dry before I could continue with my life. I guess you could call me lazy. So when I heard about this intriguing new product from Vaseline, a brand I've long been a fan of, I couldn't wait to try it out.

My Week In Photos 2

As promised, this week I made more of an effort to take 'aesthetically pleasing instagram worthy' photos. I'm really enjoying having some free time now so I can focus more on my blog, which should be more interesting as I have more time to 'go out and do stuff'. Here's the second installment of what I've been up to.

On Wednesday I visited the Warner Bros Harry Potter Studio Tour for the second time with four of my friends. It was equally as magical as my first experience and as a massive Harry Potter fan, I cannot praise it enough.

My Week In Photos - 1

Last week was my first full week off from sixth form now that I've finished my A Levels, I've made the most of this sunny freedom by sitting inside watching Netflix, I'm currently loving Modern Family. Reluctantly, I've taken on four days a week at work so my social life has been even more limited than usual. Here are the highlights though, enjoy!

At the weekend, I visited my boyfriend and we went to a fruit picking farm with his family. This rest of the week was spent overdosing on strawberries.
