Neal’s Yard Remedies
I’ve been focusing in on creating a skincare routine and have compiled a few pieces. My last post about L’Occitane was the first step and the second is Neal’s.
I was on my way to Frome when mum said there was a Neal’s Yard factory store on our route so we stopped into the store and bought a whole bunch of stuff.
We tried the infused tea and lemonade then perused the shelves for goodies.
Mum bought a bag full of hand cream and I of course got face stuff because I want to stay looking 23 for as long as possible. I picked the Orange Flower Facial oil, a Be Lovely Bath and Shower Gel, an Orange Flower Facial Wash and a few other bits.
I really love the vibe of Neal’s, the lady behind the counter really talked with passion about the products and answered my questions and I learnt a little too. Apparently Neal’s use blue bottles to preserve to products the blue deflects the sun so Neal’s don’t have to add preservatives into their products.
I’m really sold on Neal’s and can’t wait to have glowing skin.
Have you guys tried Neal’s? What’s your favourite product? what should I get next?

I love the yellow of my sunglasses mixed with the yellow of my top and finished off with my yellow gold shoes. A super yellow themed outfit. Yellow isn’t a colour I thought I could get away with, with my hair and skin tone but I absolutely love the combo.
I can’t take these shoes off, they are so beautiful, I think they spice up any outfit. I get the odd compliment when I wear them too, which is a bonus.
I made this silk holder top out of a vintage scarf when i was about 16 and love it. The vibrant yellow/green and the bold flower pattern are a needed statement to this outfit.

I’ve arrived back an uni and went for lunch with my boy friend. The Watermark has opened a few more places ( still no Wahaca though) Five Guys is one of the new ones. I’ve never been before, but the BF has so we ate there. I was a good burger but the fries are really great. I tracked how may calories the whole meal was and it was a lor-a-lot. I had the little cheese burger and little fries with a milk shake.
We took these photos on the run back to my flat. It was freezing cold.

Last year the sales weren’t for me, i didn’t find a single thing. But this year The sales this year have been great this year, it hit me a little hard, but it was worth it.
Behold the mesh embroidered jumper of my dreams, and probably yours now. Worn with blue skinny jeans and my trusty long denim jacket.
This jumper would look great over a tight black dress for new years eve.

The comfiest outfits are sometimes the best ones. This shirt and jumper combo is so A/W 16 granny chic without the glasses and cat slippers. Also cropped jeans are going to be in my wardrobe forever. The little bit of ankle showing ands a much needed detail to this look.

Halloween is just over and I wasted no time in getting my Winter/ Christmas Jumper out. I’ve had this one for a couple of years and love the little penguins on the bottom. I can already tell that I’m going to be living in this Jumper until new year.

I’m never a girl to pass up a chance to go shopping, especially if that includes discounts. West Quay hosted Student Sessions for all the Southampton students to shop with discounts, dance and win some prizes.
I didn’t really do any damage, I went to my favourite shops as they were more quiet. Jack Wills were giving out free beer which was a great touch, and their staff were very nice. The gentleman that served me in Hotel Chocolat was an actual delight, very charming and friendly.
I wondered around the shops through hoards of people looking for bargains. I cheekily asked the very lovely sales assistant in Fat Face to take a photo of me. Which he kindly obliged.

Mini dresses are my go to piece to wear when having an evening out. Is there any better opportunity to show off as much leg as you can.
I wore this to watch Buffalo Go play at Sound Circus in Bournemouth.

Double denim has come into my life and I want him (her) to stay. I’ve paired my Danish denim coat with my ripped knee grey jeans. The dark denims compliment each other with getting out of my comfort zone. Apparently curly hair is on trend so I left mine to air dry. I’m all for curly hair being on trend, it means I can stop damaging my locks so much trying to straighten it.
I spent the day over in Wimborne looking around the shops and stopped into Walford Mill. An old mill that’s been converted into an art gallery and gift shop. The last time I was here was to sketch the exhibit on show for my A-level exam, which was about 4 years ago!
This is the only photo I took inside, you’ll just have to see the creativity for yourself.
Walford have workshops and new exhibits on all the time, so get yourself down there and get cultured. 😉
