OOTD // Orange Folk Dress

After visiting Austria and wearing this adorable folk dress, I thought it would be fun to find a similar dress for my summer trip. This orange Alice & You number was perfect with its light crepe material and bright embroidered detail. Plus size orange folk dress

Nails // OPI Dulce de Leche

After my little exploration into the world of brightly coloured nails, I decided to tone it down again this time. I'm going away so wanted a simple, versatile shade that would go with every outfit I packed. There was only one nude at the nail salon that I haven't already tried so I figured it was time to give OPI Dulce de Leche a go.

Remember back in April when I was invited to the Blogosphere Tea Party? This month I popped down to the Blogosphere magazine summer party and it was just as lovely! Pretty cakes

Discovery Tours Jack the Ripper Tour

Newer readers may not know that I'm really into true crime and have a specific interest in serial killers. (If this is the first post of mine you've read, I promise the rest of my content is a lot less morbid!) I can still remember when my interest was first piqued- I was nine years old, reading the Horrible Histories Vile Victorians book and came across the recount of Jack the Ripper. I was absolutely fascinated and that was the start of a lifelong interest in the crimes of this mysterious Victorian figure. Although I've read many books on the subject, I had never explored the exact locations of the infamous case and had been meaning to attend a tour for the longest time. Then Discovery Tours offered me a place on their Jack the Ripper Tour and I finally had my chance! Wilkes Street Spitalfields

Review // The Body Shop Tea Tree Range

The smell of tea tree always takes me back to my teens. My very first cleanser was a sticky yellow concoction of tea tree and witch hazel which, while not particularly effective, did smell incredible! Tea tree oil is especially great at targeting blemishes which, as we all know, a far from a teenage-only problem so thankfully The Body Shop has a gorgeous tea tree skincare range with no dodgy yellow liquid in sight!

Review // Lush The Olive Branch Shower Gel

The Olive Branch is a Lush classic but somehow has completely evaded my bathroom until now. When I popped into Lush Oxford Street for a new shower gel, I was convinced by the very lovely sales assistant that I needed this one and she was absolutely right!
