Summer time..

Hellooooo.. It's such a lovely summers day today, and to make it even better its bank holiday tomorrow which means no work on Monday.. Yayyyy!
I bought these leopard print converse from Office this weekend when I went shopping with my boyfriend. I've been wanting them for a while now and kept looking at them online, luckily I went in to the store and they had them in my size, and even more luckily, they were priced cheaper than on the website! It was a mistake in store but they honoured the price so with that and my student discount on top I got these for around £38.
I'm really happy with them and can't wait to wear them with summery outfits and at festivals!

Hope you're all having a lovely weekend :)

My little secret..

So, I just wanted to let you all in on one of my favourite new hair products!
Sadly, I have quite the un-glamorous problem of a dry, itchy, flaky scalp- this issue has only recently started due to a side effect of some medication blah blah blah long story..
Anyway my doctor told me that coconut oil can be really helpful in sorting this out so I started looking around for products to use. I always love a good hair mask so I though a mask made from coconut oil would be perfect! I had no idea that Palmer's made anything other than coco butter to be honest, but when I saw this in Sally's I thought it might just do the job.. I massaged the majority of the sachet in to my scalp and then ran the rest through my hair- I managed to cover my whole scalp and hair with one packet. The mask is a normal 'mask-like' consistency and smells soo good! I leave this on my hair for as long as possible, normally around an hour or so and then rinse off.
The results are amazing! Even after just one use my hair was super soft and smelling of coconut for about a week even after washing my hair a few times as normal! The best part of it for me was that it left my scalp feeling completely moisturised, flake free and not at all itchy.. I find using one of these sachets once a week or so is best for me, and at only £2 a sachet this is something I will definitely be keeping up for a long time.
Even if you don't have scalp issues, I would definitely recommend this just as a lovely hair mask to keep your hair strong, shiny and smelling amazing!

Pretty paisley..

ASOS dress
Topshop clutch 
New Look wedges

I wore this out on Friday night for my little sisters 18th Birthday in Shoreditch..
I loved the colours of the gorgeous paisley print on this ASOS shift dress and had to have it! I also really like the shape of shift dresses so this was a perfect summer piece for me really.. I teamed this with a dark green, studded Topshop clutch (stolen from my sister) and a pair of simple New Look cork wedges.
This is an outfit I will definitely be wearing again over the summer, I think I'd like to try the dress with flat sandals and sunglasses for a nice casual day.

River Island cami top
Zara clutch bag
Zara sandals
River Island skirt
Topshop Leigh jeans
River Island playsuit

Like.Want.Need the sun is (finally) out in England edition!!..

I'm really in to all the little cami style tops that are out for this summer, particularly in bright colour pop, neon shades. This River Island one is the perfect shade of neon yellow and is only £12! The cute swing style shape detail will make this so flattering so this is definitely on my 'to purchase' list.

They have made a matching clutch!!!! You may remember a couple of months ago I posted about a pair of amazing Zara heels (here), well they have now bought out a beautiful matching bag! The shoes are still on my wishlist and now I neeeeeed to have both! 

As you can probably tell, Zara are my absolute favourite for shoes and accessories. These gold detail sandals are just perfect. I really like the double ankle strap and the fact that these could so easily be dressed up or down. 

I am currently a little bit obsessed with black and white horizontal stripes. I want them on everything! So of course I would want this tube skirt from River Island. I think this would look great with the neon cami or a boy fit white t-shirt..

As you probably all know I am in love with Topshop Leigh jeans, so summer colour variations of them are definitely for me! I've wanted a pair of orange jeans for the past few summers but have never found any I liked enough to buy. This pair may just be the ones!

I really love the shape of biker jackets and the colour and pattern of this River Island one really updates the classic biker for spring/summer. The material is a kind of aztec inspired jacquard which is really pretty and interesting. This would look so lovely with blue jeans for a casual daytime outfit.

How cute is this River Island playsuit?!? I love the embroidery detail adding the pop of summer colour. I really want to buy this for my holiday in the summer to wear over a bikini for the day time.
