This outfit combo has become a recent go-to of mine, purely because it ticks the boxes of 'comfort' and looking somewhat 'put together'. I picked up this striped top back in July at one of my many Goodwill visits. As much as I love rummaging through the charity shops over here, looking for vintage finds. Nothing beats a Goodwill store as their prices are often very purse friendly, and the one I visited in Orlando was basically the size of your local supermarket. *HEAVEN* The stock itself was on par to items I would come across at vintage stores in Brick lane, but half the price-this top only cost me $3. Needless to say I'm most definitely going to bring an empty suitcase along with me on next years trip...

Palmer's Coconut Oil Review

Coconut oil has long been the ingredient known to rescue dry, damaged hair due to its strengthening and moisturising properties. So when these three products landed on my desk I was particularly intrigued to give them a go, as I suffer from the above due to having bleach blonde hair.

Palmers Coconut Oil Hair Smoothie is my chosen first product to use when trialling the trio, as the smoothie is essentially a hair lotion that deeply hydrates and restores your hair back to its softest 'frizz-free' self. I normally take a 50p size in the palm of my hand and run this all through my hair, when its freshly washed, and in the 'damp' phase of drying. Brush through and proceed to use the Leave-In Conditioner.

The Leave-In Conditioner is nifty product that instantly detangles your hair whilst controlling frizz and mending split-ends. I've recently been spraying this on my hair, focusing the on the bottom half so when I go in with a brush I'm not wrestling with this knots. As someone who's hair is already pretty damaged (bleach induced) this product is perfect in reducing the addition of split-ends. One of the best things about this product is that it can be used throughout the day, as and when is needed.

Lastly (probably) my favourite out of the bunch is the Coconut Oil Dry Oil Mist, as someone who swears by using hair oils this product is a blend of eight, including key olds such as Avocado Oil, Argan Oil and Jojoba Oil. It also is 'weight-less' meaning that whilst revitalising and re-hydrating your hair it doesn't weigh it down, which typically a lot of hair oils are know to do. At the moment I love to spray this when my hair is towel dried, and as a final touch to calm down any fly-aways and add an extra boost of shine to my hair.

Without a shadow of a doubt all three of these products smell AMAZING, and don't contain any Sulphates, Phthalates, Mineral Oil, Gluten or Dye and they're all made with natural coconut oil.
In fact they are fast becoming essential products in my hair-care routine.

faux fur

Owning a faux fur jacket has been top of my list for this autumn/winter, after trying on countless versions you may of seen my 'fitting room' snaps via Instagram stories trying on a couple in Topshop. I could never find one I truly had my heart set on, don't get me wrong that pale pink Topshop one  (this one) was a high contender. But to be honest on a student budget my heart wasn't completely set on it.
Then whilst trawling through the Zara TRF range I came across this black one (also available in Cream and Pistachio) and completely fell in love. Price wise at just £29.99 it was a bargain, and being black (and someone who rarely wears any sort of colour bar my last outfit post) it makes the perfect addition to my wardrobe. So prepare to see a lot more of it, now its semi-appropriate to be wearing faux-fur out.
