New Purse: Marc Jacobs & Uni Update

I've had the same purse for a while now and fancied a little change. I guess its retail therapy too because I'm having a pretty bad time right now. I selected the Recruit Open Face Wallet by Marc Jacobs, a lot smaller than my previous purse but its just what I need and completely lightweight.

I'm going back to uni and soon and this definitely wont be weighing my bag down when walking around campus. I can't believe freshers week is a month away and I'll be starting my second year so soon. This time last year I didn't even know the five girls I've just spent a week on holiday with, crazy. Its surreal how much your life can change in one year, looking back on first year (or should I say half a year) I guess I've learnt a few things.

I keep trying to find time to blog, or topics to talk about but the difference between blog content these days between now and when I started is massively different. I'm definitely less interested in the subjects I used to write about, so I'm just going to stick to writing about what I love now.

What's your most recent purchase?

Summer Haul; Adidas, ASOS, Shopbop etc...

Hello! I've bought a few new things for summer recently and I wanted to post them on my blog as a little haul. I'm actually in love with my adidas Originals Stan Smith Super Colour Shock Mint Trainers.  I purchased these on ASOS in a UK size 6 and they fit perfectly - definitely true to size. These are honestly the comfiest trainers I own, and also completely different to anything I own (as pretty much everything I have is black or neutral). I really love the colour, even though some of my friends think they're just ridiculous and wouldn't be seen dead with me in them. These retail at £65.00, but ASOS do have 10% student discount so I got them for £58.50 with free delivery.

The BEST Fake Tan Brand | Bondi Sands

Hello! Today I'm talking about Bondi Sands - the best fake tan brand I have used, hands down. I've been using the Bondi Sands Self Tanning Foam in Light/Medium and the Bondi Sands Everyday Gradual Tanning Milk for a couple of months now, and I haven't switched them out for anything else. I first heard about the brand from Shani Grimmond on YouTube (her skin always looks amazing), and when I saw they were in Superdrug I couldn't not try - especially as I'm always looking for a tan that isn't orange.

I'm usually the type to go orange when using any kind of fake tan due to how pale I naturally am, but these products are definitely more on the bronzing side. I'd say the Self Tanning Foam has much more of a grey undertone than orange, which is perfect because it looks so much more natural (even my mum agrees, and she can't stand fake tan). I love how natural it is because its perfect for work - I'd never risk being bright orange there.

Accessorising with The Michael Kors Cindy Dome Cross Body Bag

Hello! I thought I'd share my recent favourite bag which I've been using with pretty much every outfit I've been wearing recently. I purchased the Michael Kors Cindy Dome Cross Body Bag in Optic White after falling in love with it on the website, and its even prettier in person. I don't usually do white, because of how easily it can get dirt on (probably my makeup), but for occasions this bag is definitely the one. 

I'm so pleased I took a risk with this bag and went for it because the white and gold go so well with a pair of black trousers/jeans, a blouse and heeled boots (my typical outfit) - and I've had so many compliments when wearing the bag.
