Review: I Love...Coconut and Cream Shower Creme



So I know this is an odd thing to review, but holy cow, this stuff smells amazing.
I was perusing Superdrug last week, trying to find a nice bubble bath that isn't extortionate. (Lush, I'm looking at you, as much as I love you, my purse doesn't.) I came across this. £2.05 for a 500ml bottle, so I didn't expect too much when I open up the bottle and smelt it.


If you like the smell/taste of coconut, I URGE you to try this, it is beautiful. It lathers up beautifully, and now my skins smells absolutely edible. It is GORGEOUS. I plan to go and buy the body butter today just to smell like it even more.
So yes, I implore you all to go and smell/buy this beautiful shower gel! I can't stop smelling myself, I look like madwoman, sniffing at my arms, but I do not care!

Has anyone else tried this? If so, do you agree that it is AMAZING? X

Renbow Crazy Colour Semi Permanent Hair Dye - Capri Blue


Amazon Link
As some of you will know if you follow my instagram or twitter, before I cut my hair short, I had half my hair adorned with this gorgeous vibrant blue colour. I got quite a few compliments on my hair so I thought I'd do a little post about the hair dye.

So basically, I'm in love with it. I now have 3 bottles in my room, waiting to be slathered on the ends of my hair!

Before I bought the dye, I was scouring Amazon and trying to work out what dye would be best. I chose Renbow because it was pretty cheap - less than £5, and the colour seemed vibrant. I chose 'Capri Blue' because it seemed the most vivid of the colours.

I was slightly worried about how to apply it, but it seemed easy enough. Wash your hair, and whilst your hair is still wet, apply the dye, wait for 30 minutes, then wash it off. I am terrible at doing my hair, and even I couldn't get it too wrong. I mean, I accidentally got hair dye all over my arms and bathroom, but I didn't mess up my hair!

As you can see, the dye came up very bright, but this may be because I already had bleach on this part of my hair from a few years ago. The lighter your hair is, the more likely it is that you'll get a more vibrant colour.

It's a semi-permanent dye that's meant to last around 6 weeks, and I would touch it up once a month or so to keep it nice and bright.

If you're considering dying your hair a bright colour, I recommend these, there's vast array of colours available and they're affordable!

Do you use bright colour hair dye? What company would you recommend? x

Weekend Wishlist - Budget Edition

Weekend Wishlist

1 2 3 4

I decided to do this weekend's wishlist slightly different, by adding a 'budget' element to it. Normally I just pick and choose clothes that I'm currently craving, regardless of their price, but at the moment, I feel like I need to thinking about saving a bit more. I'm very aware that I finish my 3rd year in 2014, and if things don't go to plan, it'll be my final year! I feel like an adult, and saving is a thing adults seem to do ;)

So here's my budget wishlist, coming in at £45! How good is that, a whole outfit for £45, yay me.

Do you save? And what is on your weekend wishlist?

Weekend Wishlist

Weekend Wishlist

1 2 3 4 5 6

This week's wishlist is most certainly summer inspired, the sun is out and I'm dreaming of buying a plethora of pretty shorts and sandals! The unicorn top is just too perfect to not include, I shall definitely be picking it up next time I'm in Topshop! I've been having a bit of a ring obsession lately, I can't leave the house without at least 5 or 6 rings adorning my fingers, and these beauties would fit right in with my ever-growing collection!

What's on your wishlist this weekend?
Enjoy the sun x
