Current shower products.

Shower products are kind of the same for beauty products with me, I tend to stick to (or go back to) the same ones for quite a while if I love them. I'm also quite OCD about my routine, everything is always done in the same order haha.

The Aussie Mega shampoo was one I read about a few months ago, and even though it does contain sulfates, I liked that it would cause no build up. Plus Aussie products always smell amazing. The raspberry & macadamia conditioner from Superdrug is one I've went back to (although back in the day it was more the shampoo I used). It smells sooo good! red kola. You do need to use quite a bit of product each time but it still lasts ages and only costs between £1-£2. The Naked Rescue conditioner is another one I love to use, it's definitely richer than the Superdrug one and again...smells yummy.

I always seem to end up loving Soap & Glory face products the most for when I wash my face in the shower. I did also really enjoy their Peaches & Clean one but I've returned to this bottle of minty freshness.

I usually use just the Simple shower cream unless I'm obsessing over any Lush shower gels which I'm sure will happen again soon. Then I either like to use Soap & Glory's Flake Away or the Breakfast Scrub. I don't know why I forgot to photograph that one actually as it's what I use the most - mmm it smells like maple syrup! My favourite shave gel is this cheap and cheerful fruity one from Boots.

After my shower I am for sure obsessed with this pistachio sundae body butter from Nip + Fab, oh my god the scent is incredible. I've went through so many little pots of the stuff. My current moisturiser is the For Daily Youth one from Soap & Glory (shocker, I know).

What's currently in your shower routine?

Black on black on polkadots.

Top | New Look 
Skirt | H&M 
Shoes & hair bow | Primark
Lipstick | Rimmel Apocolips in Big Bang

I wasn't aiming for some sort of gothic Minnie Mouse with this outfit but hey there you go (I know it's mostly just cause of the bow, shhh...).  I love this little pleather skirt so much, it's the perfect skater shape.

I feel like I don't have anything exciting to say but then again when do I haha. The other night I went to see the movie Legend and it was so amazing. I knew I was going to love it as it stars two of my favourites - Tom Hardy and Emily Browning - but the whole 60s gangster vibe was just perfect. Next on my to see list is Me, Earl and the Dying Girl.

Have you seen anything decent at the cinema lately?

New in | Ikea.

I visited Ikea about a week ago (biggest drive I've done so far as well and I didn't get lost, yass). I mostly went to get a new bedding set and managed to spot the sweet one above. I'm hoping that once it's on my bed it doesn't look too "grannyish" haha. Also on my mind were the cute milkshake-style cups as when we were in Spain all the little cafes used them there and I couldn't wait to drink some smoothies out of them.

I also got lots of unscented tea lights as I can't use scented ones due to my rats and one of the apple slicers, finally! The few glass pieces of kitchen ware aren't exactly things I needed but I just love the style of things like that. Especially the big glass tea cup. As for the black bowl,'s black and we all know I love that haha.

What do you think of the things I picked up? Do you have anything on your Ikea wish list at the moment?

White details.

Top | Urban Oufitters
Jeans | H&M
Bag | Primark
Shoes | Converse

Sooo...I got bored of my hair half way through these photos and changed it - I promise they were taken at the same time haha! I featured this pretty little top in my last post, it's just the daintiest thing. Though I do have to wear a vest underneath as it's very see-through. 

All in all I know this probably isn't the most interesting outfit to look at but I just love how simplistic white and black are together. I did add some red lips for a bit of variety! :) 

Oh if you look closely you can see where one of my rats (Dexter I'm looking at you) chewed a hole in the front of my bag, little sh*t haha.

Video | July/August Collective Haul.

Pinafore | Topshop via eBay 
Floral vest | Urban Outfitters 
Sequin crop | Topshop via eBay

Pleather skater skirt | H&M
Retro print skirt | Urban Outfitters

Cream jumper | H&M
Yellow jumper | Topshop via eBay

Pugs not drugs jumper | Gemma Correll via eBay

So I've attached some photos of the things featured in my video (there are other items too though) just incase not everyone wants to watch. As I mentioned, this is stuff I've collected over the months of July and August, with quite a few pieces being from eBay. All the little home ware things are from my holiday in Spain. I will apologise for the area behind me being more in focus than I am, grrr damn camera.

I hope you did give it a little watch though, and do let me know what you think of my purchases!
