Power Of The Flower

Just a quick post from me today, the weather is still lush and so I had to get my pasty pins out today. I really must don my shape ups soon, to get more toned my legs use to be in great shape but have gotten a little soft (I blame twitter and Corben, and the sofa ..well and krisp kreme). I got this dress in Primark years ago, and only found it the other day I was sorting through things and decided to keep it. I also LOVE these Primark shoes, I got them off EBay a while ago but it was too cold to wear them. 

I need to dye my hair as my roots (and my grey streak) are coming back and I look like a crazy bag lady when I wear it down, but it's started to fall out in huge clumps again so maybe I will be rocking my scalp soon and won't have too (hey if I don't joke I would cry). So been upping my protein to try and boost it, I think it's stress and the crap I have been eating. 

I have started to eat more summer foods, which I'm sure my body, brain and heart will thank me for as I have been consuming stupid amounts of sugar. Not good when you are coming down off a huge sugar rush, and you start to snap at the TV because you missed your favourite show ( yep I had a good old yell at it). So have not cut it out enough yet, I know I'm going to have total junkie melt down if I go cold turkey off sugar but I really have to cut it down. I swear my brain just goes numb, well how much brain power can you get from mini muffins and Dr pepper.

Still debating fake tanning, if you know of any good ones than please leave it in the comments. I have had a couple of suggestions, but I want to see if I get any that crop up a lot as that's usual a winner. I'm super pale so nothing too dark, I really don't want to end up looking like I smeared myself in Marmite. The last time I attempted fake tan, I got asked if I was ill  'that skin rash looks bad, are you okay?' I scrubbed my top layer of skin off the same day ....So be kind ;P

  1. Love the knitted cardi and the sandals! So summery!

    As an avid fake tanner I would say Fake Bake is the best out there, though it is expensive. If you want a good cheap option go with St. Moritz (rip off of St.Tropez!). xx

  2. Love that dress and the cardi!
    The best fake tan I've used is St Moriz. It's a mousse and comes in a pump bottle like St Tropez but is only £2.99! You can find it in places like TJ Hughes, Bodycare and Savers!

  3. Your outfit is so summery, I love it! I've been debating for ages whether to get a paper planes bag, yours is so nice. I have really pale skin too, I occasionally use doves gradual tan in light - medium, usually 2 applications is enough for a quite subtle little glow! I mix it with some body lotion though to get rid off that biscuity fake tan smell haha! xx

  5. Ohhh old bargains rule and the weather yesterday was so lovely. I also need to work my legs a bit harder to return them to their former glory. I am using fake tan by Piz Buin; a lotion with a 'colour dial' so you can select the shade you want to go... in theory.
