A Day In The Life + OOTD // Brighton

I turned 14 on the 7th of June and this year I spent my birthday with family. My sister and I stayed at our other sister's house the night before and got dressed there in the morning, here was my outfit which was slightly different to my usually style

Striped tee - New Look
Acid Wash Leigh Jeans - Topshop
Boots - Also New Look
Sunglasses (even though I forgot to use them) - Forever 21
Flower crown

First we went out for breakfast in the morning (which, as you may know from my "10 things that make me happy" post,  is one of my favourite things). Then we got in the car to head out to Brighton.

Obviously we had  to stop for
Starbucks :)

Once we got there we shopped a bit, went out on the beach and went on some rides on the pier. Finally we had some GBK before heading home.

That's all for today's post, I hope you enjoyed it :) I'm kind of getting better at posting more frequently but I still can't come up with ideas! Anyways hahave a great day

Current Favourites

Today I want to talk about the things I have been loving this past month or so.

This primer does what it says well on my combination skin but it feels really unpleasant. However, since the feeling is unnoticeable after a while I put up with it and still recommend it - after all it is very inexpensive too.

A work in progress by Connor Franta
 I typically wouldn't read memoirs but Connor's personality shines through as he talks about his journey to "internet stardom" and more. Plus he's one of my favourite people in the world so... :)
I went to his book signing on Monday 25th and bawled my eyes out!

Scent wise I tried out "Deep Night" by Ghost and seemingly kept using it through out May. I can't describe the scent so maybe just pop into a store and smell it because it is a great everyday scent.

Once Upon A Time
This has been on my list of shows to watch for a while and I finally got to it. It's basically about fairy tale characters in our world but it is not quite as lighthearted as it seems. I finally caught up and I loved it! Can't wait until it comes back

Colab dry shampoo
Dry shampoo is a miracle product for lazy people like me :D I've pretty much stood by Batiste dry shampoos when it comes to aerosoles, that is until I tried this one out and it's pretty great - also it's made by a youtuber(amodelreccomends) so yayIt doesn't leave any white residue, lasts long and actually does make your hair feel fresher.

Some of my recent music picks have been -
Strings ~ Shawn Mendes
Something's Gotta Give ~ All Time Low
Talking Body ~ Tove Lo
Nine in the afternoon ~ Panic! At The Disco
Worth it ~ Fifth Harmony
This is not a game ~ The Chemical Brothers
Got It - Marian Hill (Kill them with colour remix)

That's all for today, I know it's not a lot but I just wanted to get started on posting more  :)
