This is what I wore on my birthday, we went to Southend and had afternoon tea at Patisserie Valerie. Even though the sandwiches, scones and cakes were tiny, we couldn't finish them all! But everything was delicious (except the bitter honey marmalade haha). There were cucumber, salmon, ham, chicken and egg sandwiches; plain and fruit scones with butter, cream and 4 toppings available; and mini carrot cake, eclairs, Victoria sponge, chocolate cake and a fruit mousse. We also got a teapot each which was more than enough. Everything was delicious and I would definitely wouldn't mind having it again ;D

Sanctuary Spa Radiance Exfoliator

Sanctuary Spa Radiance Exfoliator
Ages ago I won in a competition a Winter Facial set from Sanctuary Spa, which included miniatures of various products, including the Radiance Exfoliator. I started using it last year but only a couple of times, and more regularly about 2 months ago, and sadly I have now finished but have used it enough times to write about it. 

The Sanctuary Spa Radiance Exfoliator promises to instantly reveal a brighter completion with the use of ultra fine apricot granules & grape seed to exfoliate the skin, while pumpkin, pineapple & papaya extracts help to increase cell renewal to leave skin smooth and glowing with radiance.  

The first thing that I noticed when first using the Sanctuary Spa Radiance Exfoliator is that it has a light gel texture with medium exfoliating grains, which I don't mind the size of as long as they do their job, and when applying, the second thing I noticed was the smell of it, which is a bit woody with a hint of fruit, almost like tamarind and the look of chamoy sauce (which I like btw haha).

When I put it on my face I notice it slightly warms up, then I massage onto my skin and leave on for a few minutes to let the fruit acids exfoliate my skin even further. When I rinse the product off my skin feels clean, soft and smooth, but not dry or tight. Quite like this exfoliator and would actually purchase the full size for myself.

When I bought these shorts online didn't realise the rips went all through the fabric and not just a top layer, so I decided to add some panels of fabric behind the rips to avoid ending up with holes too big on the shorts haha. This weekend we are going to visit my family and friends in Mexico, can't wait!

The Body Shop Mascara & Lip Tint

Primark Lace Bralette SetNatural Collection Water Guard Mascara
BHS Non Wired Bra

Last month I got more pens because stationery-obsession, these Uni-ball Eraseable Pens are from The Works. It's also the month where I got mascaras, one every weekend for 3 consecutive week haha. The first one was from MUA and it's the Nourish & Care Volume.

The week after that I got the Garnier Micellar Oil Infused Cleansing Water, and used a discount I had to get The Body Shop Super Volume Mascara and the Lip & Cheek Stain.

Then the following week in Lakeside I got another mascara, this time the Natural Collection Water Guard Mascara to wear over the non waterproof MUA one, as well as a Lip Balm from Blistex and a Bralette Set from Primark.

Last but not least, with BHS closing down and having a clearance, I went to see if I could find yet another wire free bra (comfort for the win) and found this one for about a third of it's original £12 price.

It's my birthday tomorrow! We might go to have afternoon tea but we'll see what happens! I really wanted to get a new dress to wear for my birthday but couldn't find any that I loved (except the one I saw a woman wearing in Tesco, asked her and it was from forever 21, couldn't find it online). Either way I'm quite happy with my summer capsule wardrobe collection which includes this skater dress that I got about 4 years ago. Even though I really love it I didn't wear it last year but I rediscovered this summer and have already worn it quite a few times.
