Sea salt sprays have never been something I'd be too interested in - I've heard the horror stories of dried out crispy hair, sticky roots (& hands!), and tousles tangled to death. Having coarse straight hair probably didn't add to the motivation either since my 'beach hair' usually ends up in a poop-lookin' top knot for my hair & salty water equals a sea side disaster. Don't get me wrong - I lived on a beach in Rhodes for 3 months, so it's not like I haven't got enough expertise in this whole beach business! So far I've tried 3 sea salt sprays - which one do I think is the best one for straight already-coarse hair?

I'm not sure how many of you have already heard about Bahoma. My personal guess is not that many, as I haven't read about it on many blogs myself - all you read about nowadays in the candle & home fragrance department is Diptyque, Neom & Jo Malone. At least that's what it looks like to me. Meh. And Bahoma is definitely a brand that should not be left out of the game, both for the amazing quality of their products & the whole philosophy of the company!

On one of the sunny days me & Justin decided to go for a little trip - since we can never decide where to go (rather embarrassing since he has worked in a tourist information centre for about 3 years and I've been working there since Christmas *cough cough*), I picked up an English Heritage leaflet and pointed at the first thing that caught my eye - the Wenlock Priory. Wenlock Priory is situated in Much Wenlock (a very traditional English town), Shropshire. About 40 minutes from Walsall, we thought hey - seems like a decent day out! And let me tell you, it wasn't just decent - it was flippin' amazing!

Somehow, the make-up I was wearing with the burnt orange crochet top made me think of the movie Good Girl. Not that it's inspired by it, but it's that sort of 'girl next door' kind of look. Flush all over the cheeks (as if I just got home from a walk through an orchard), bright base, eyeshadow creating some natural depth & lips that look super hydrated, can't really go wrong right?

As you may remember, last summer I was slightly obsessed with crochet - especially this Zara crochet top. Well, this year won't be much different. Apart from the fact that I've swapped (not really, I still have my beloved Zara top in the wardrobe) the Zara top for a cheaper more colourful alternative - a burnt orange crochet tank top from a brandless gypo shop in Brum!

Escentual came up with this brilliant idea of havin' 100 different bloggers blind trial 7 different micellar waters and then report back which sample proved to be the best. How smart is that, man?! These 7 different brands include stars such as Dior & Caudalie, but until the final day of this trial, you will have no idea which bottle these are in! For now I can just pretend I'm back at my chemistry class - sniff & trial these little buggers drop by drop.

I believe there are gonna be two camps of people after reading this post - people who will absolutely love me for this revelation & people who will think I've gone beyond cray cray. But sod it - toilet training my kitten is one of the best ideas I've ever had, not even joking! If you've got a cat or a kitten (or more) at home, and especially if they are sofa-bound gits, you know how annoying litter boxes and the pooping affair can get - it smells, you have to spend money on gravel instead of lipsticks, you have to buy baby wipes even though your only baby is your kitten and the worst - you have to clean the poo! Ew. Carry on reading and there's a good chance you won't ever need to go through all this again!
