I’ve been shopping! I think I’ve become more of a shopping addict in my old ages. By the time I retire I fully expect to have bankrupted myself. Most likely it’s all the blogs I read, the majority of this shop is blogger inspired. So here’s me, playing Keeping up with the Joneses and just adding to haul culture. You love it.
I think that The Body Shop launched their Body Sorbets last summer. They are described as a “light and frosty body moisturiser” – pretty perfect for the hot weather right? I was intrigued, but it was only when I smelt the Virgin Mojito one that I knew I had to grab it. It smells amazing – just like a mojito (mint and lime for non-drinkers), so incredibly summery. The consistency is awesome, it’s kinda thick, a bit like a gel but it sinks into the skin instantly and feels cooling for several minutes afterwards. Win.
I’m a big fan of Bumble and Bumble and I knew that when I was having recent hair troubles they would have my back. The hard water down here in England is wrecking my hair and scalp and I now rely on the Sunday shampoo as a weekly deep cleanse to attempt to strip some of the mineral deposits out of my hair. It’s not completely resolved the problem, but it’s definitely a help. My hair now looks OK on Monday!
Oh yeah, the major blogger must have for summer time. I’ve actually been after this for a couple of years, but I especially love the bottle this year so I made sure to snap it up before it sells out. It’s a hot summer fragrance which is actually quite hard to define – a bit citrus, a splash coconut, lots of amber, maybe some flowers… really quite unique.
Next up, I bought the Rimmel ‘Chin Up, Buttercup’ nail polish as I was after a nice, bright yellow. I actually don’t like this, it looks like it has a bit of a greenish hue against my skintone. Ah well, can’t win ’em all.
Lastly, the most important item – some suncream. This is a handbag friendly size with a high SPF so perfect for on the go. It also smells unbelievably good with mango and coconut. I actually love it, it’s a joy to use! It is glittery though but I just don’t care, I just want it on me.
That was my little summer-ready haul. I also got the extremely unglamorous necessities of a handbag sized antiperspirant and a tonne of anti-histamines. #SummerProblems indeed.
