The UK weather has been r-i-d-i-c-u-l-o-u-s recently. We've been experiencing highs of 35 degrees and It's pretty unbearable. I like the summer, I do. The way in which I like the weather to be is pretty sunny but with lots of cool breeze at the same time. I've been hiding out inside to keep myself cool and also packing up my university room as I'm moving back to London for the summer this week until I start a new university chapter in September. I am ridiculously excited to get back as I've been away for 11 months with around three-ish visits back home. London is my favourite, it's my home and I love to do a lot of exploring there, even though I've lived there my whole life. Plus, I'm really looking forward to catch ups with friends and family who I haven't seen in ages and hopefully making some good summer memories.

I'm currently sorting through my wardrobe on what clothes I'm taking home and what I'm putting into storage such as winter bits that I'll take out once I'm back at uni in September. Sorting through your wardrobe means finding loads of gems that you totally forgot you had. I got the duster cardigan (not really sure what to call it?) in a charity shop around a year or two ago, I kind of got it on a whim. I've accumulated a lot of clothes over the past two years, so at the time of purchasing it I didn't really have anything that I think looked good to pair it with. I can't stop wearing it recently as I've got so many outfits that go well underneath. 

I got the top for a really good price of £16 from ASOS a few months back in one of their sales. Speaking of, there are currently some really amazing summer sales and deals on at the minute. Last week I picked up this amazing striped popper front crop top from Topshop that I had been lusting after for ages. FashionBeans are also another great site for fashion discount codes. Since coming to university and being a broke student, the only way I can justify my spending is only to purchase items when I find a good decent code to reduce the price. Oh, I did actually have a bit of a dilemma with this top the university washing machines somehow managed to stain it pretty badly, luckily I managed to get it back to normal after a further two washes. P.S I am loving having my legs out, it's way too hot to put tights on in this heat because of men little boys who can't seem to stop their ridiculous wolf whistling whenever they see a pair of legs around this time of year.

PS. How cringe is my attempt at doing YouTube in 2012? I can't stop laughing at what a fail it was and how chubby my cheeks were. Enjoy!

Have you found any old gems hidden in your wardrobe?


Lifestyle // Review: Veet Hair Removal Cream

by , in
                                                                                                                       Hey beauts,
Happy Friday!! This week has gone ridiculously fast and I can't believe we're now in July. Where has this year gone? I literally say this every year, but honestly I blinked from January and now the months have sped by. 

Every summer I vow that I won't be getting my legs out. I don't know if anyone else feels the same, but as a woman I can't help feeling so vulnerable when the sun comes out and I have my legs on show or arms on display. In all honesty, over the years I've been scared of being wolf whistled at or men starring at me with their beady eyes and making me feel uncomfortable. But this summer is one of the hottest on record and I'm already putting my insecurities behind me and leaving the tights in my draw.

Anyway, with going barelegged means needing to get rid of those pesky little leg hairs. I don't think I'm quite ready to #freetheleghair anytime soon. I've been testing out Veet's hair removal cream and I have to say I've been loving it. Since coming to university, I've used quite a few hair removal creams as I got to the point where I realised I just didn't have the patience or enough plasters to continue using razors anymore, haha. I noticed with a lot of the previous creams I was using, they left a really horrible smell which was really overpowering in my room. 

Veet contains grape seed oil which I think helps to give it such a great smell. The instructions couldn't be easier. All you have to do is use the spatula provided inside the box and use it wherever you want to get rid of hair. I just used it on my legs and spread the cream all over, then waited for five minutes before jumping into the shower and washing it off. I was extremely surprised with the results, in all honesty I expected to still see little bits of hair that didn't take well. To my surprise, both legs were hairless... Honestly, like one of those little bald cats. Afterwards, I had to stop myself from getting friends to feel how silky smooth my legs had gotten. I really don't have a bad word to say about this hair removal cream. I feel like it's taken a few not so great ones to find my new go-to one. 

Have you tired this hair removal cream before?
