OOTD | Embracing Summer

Dress- Zara
Sunglasses- H&M
Sandels- Gap
Bag- H&M

The sun is out, the sky is blue and it is finally starting to feel like summer! I have spent today biking along Regents canal and having a picnic in and wandering around Victoria park. I feel so much happier when the sun is shining and I can spend my days relaxing and soaking up the sun. (As you can tell from these pictures I may have soaked up a bit too much sun today looking at the redness of my arm!) 

The best part of today was being able to finally get my (very pale) legs out for the first time this year and wear this super cute Zara dress. Like I said in my previous post, I am loving everything in Zara at the moment, and this dress is no acceptation. The shape is fairly unusual, but that is why I love it so much. It also has a playsuit kind of thing attached underneath, which allows you to wear it without shorts/trousers and still maintain dignity whilst bending over/moving in general. 

I have recently decided that not only am I going to avoid buying black clothes, I am also going to try and stop buying the same kind of clothes and start buying more unique and different items. So instead of buying another striped top in a different shape or the same style skirt in a different colour, I am going to (try) and be more adventurous. The cut out back and overall shape of this dress makes it really unique and definitely something I have never worn before, which is why I love it so much. It definitely adds something different to my wardrobe, plus it isn't black which is always a positive! Paired with these simple GAP sandals, it makes the perfect summer outfit. 

Make Your Own | Coffee Body Scrub

Recently coffee body scrubs have become extremely popular and have become an instagram favourite. Being curious as ever, I automatically wanted to try this amazing exfoliator that tones, tightens and brightens your skin. So off I popped to my local boots and was shocked when I realised the price was £15. Surely what is basically a bag of ground coffee can't cost £15?! Anyway I walked straight back out the door and decided to make my own. 

It is so so SO easy to make this coffee scrub and after using it a couple of times I can already see results, my skin feels so much smoother and more hydrated. All you need is a bag of ground coffee which costs £2/£3 and some coconut oil, which I found in Sainsburys for just £4. These will make a load of coffee scrub "cubes" which you just pop out the freezer whenever you would like. So who really needs to spend a load of money on a glorified bag of coffee?

What you need:
  • Ground coffee
  • Coconut oil
  • Ice cube tray
What you do:
  • Melt the coconut oil on a low heat (this won't take long at all, so keep watching!)
  • Pour in the ground coffee, the amount depends on personal preference but I added quite a bit 
  • Pour into ice cube tray
  • Put in freezer 
  • Get out and use as and when you would
