Hey lovelies,
It's finally starting to feel like Spring is upon us in the UK. I absolutely love Spring, it starts to be less cold and we're treated with some of the warmest days. I feel as if in Winter my style is quite all over the place, this Winter was one of the coldest meaning it was always a 'jeans and jumper day' but with Spring officially a weekend away, I can get back to  really putting some thought into what I wear!

1/ Cat Pinafore Dress - Lazy Oaf
I am absolutely gutted that this dress has sold out. This is a combination of my two favourite things, dresses and cats. This is the ultimate S/S piece. I wouldn't even be ashamed to admit, If I owned this all my fashion choices would be 'which of my many striped tops am I wearing underneath this bad boy today.' It also comes in the cutest pink shade too, but I think black is personally easier to style. I predict that pinafores will be just as popular this year.

2/ Roll Neck Stripped Top - French Connection
You can never have too many stripped tops.. I say this as I look over at my numerous striped tops hanging on my rack. *shifty eyes* but that is one fashion statement to live by. I find that stripes honestly go with everything, that's the reason I own so much. I spotted this one over in the French Connection sale and the fact it's a 50% saving makes me so happy. Everyone loves a good sale. It also didn't cross my mind until just now at what a perfect combination it would be styled with the pinafore.

3/ Bright Tartan Check Shirt - Topshop
Every S/S will always consist of wearing tartan shirts. When we start to have warmer days and the coats are left hanging up at home, this is the only comfort I need. For pretty much most years I went through an issue of really hating my arms, so that meant during some of the most hottest days I'd cover myself up in checked shirts. I've since passed that issue and fully embrace my arms but no matter what I'll always love throwing a tartan shirt on underneath. The brightness of this one is what attracted me to it.

4/ Metallic Shoes - Zara
I love Zara. So many of my tops are from there and the quality and design of each is just perfect. I'm especially in love with their TRF collection, everything is always super affordable. One thing I'm still yet to try is their footwear, the reason being is that I'm a size 7 and I always manage to find the dreamiest footwear in my size in most stores.. But Zara is one of the difficult ones for my size in store anyway. So when I came across these online and in my size.. I knew they were for me. 

5/ Cord Mini Skirt - Topshop
These a-line skirts were so popular last summer. My summer was spent back home in London and I was often over at Westfield a lot, I can't even begin to describe how many of these skirts I saw around. I myself own a black one from New Look and a white one from Topshop and I love them. They are super easy to style and I really find that they compliment my shape. Now, when I really love something it means that I basically need it in every possible colour that it comes in!

Lifestyle // Review: Slimming Solutions 14 Day Teatox*

by , in
14 Day Teatox - Slimming Solutions 

Hey lovelies,
This is such an overdue post. I should have had this up in January but university/procrastination are both currently a b*tch. Now, this isn't my usual post topic. Teatox's have become so hyped these last few months and I didn't think I'd be reviewing one first hand. I was contacted a while ago to see if I'd be interested in trying one out so thought why not give it a go.

I tried out the Slimming Solutions 14 day Teatox which comes with a daytime blend of 14 natural herbal blend teabags which it says to take everyday for the full 14 days. The other is the evening blend which consists of 7 blend teabags, which it says to drink every other evening.

Whilst doing this teatox I tried to maintain a healthy diet and regularly head to the gym. I know a few people who have done teatox's before and they always say you'll see the best results when you maintain a healthy diet with it, which is actually recommended on the the brands website too. I quite enjoyed taking the daytime blend, I made it my mission for the full 14 days to get up every morning at a reasonable time and make myself something nice for breakfast with my daytime blend. When you open the bag, the teabags give off a really powerful smell but thankfully I didn't find it to taste bad at all. To me it had a similar taste to green tea which I am a big fan of, so taking it in the morning wasn't a struggle at all. I definitely felt energised within myself, which was definitely a combination of a good breakfast and the tea. 

The evening blend was a bit harder for me, the one thing that always put me off a little in the past about trying a teatox was that most evening blends are known for their laxative effect and all I could imagine is me trying it the night before and having a total Bridesmaid moment during uni the next day (the scene where they all get food poisoning and are frantically looking for somewhere to take a poo) LOL. Well thankfully I was lucky enough to not be affected in that way. Not that I'd get food poisoning from a teatox but anything that says 'laxative' does quite scare me. I'm happy to report that I didn't need to be scared at all. I think if I hadn't of eaten too great during it, I might have been writing a different story, ha. In terms of the taste, this tasted a lot stronger to the daytime blend, It did make me screw up my face a little bit but I powered through. 

Overall, I very much enjoyed getting to try this teatox. I didn't really notice a big difference when I looked at my stomach after 14 days but that wasn't really an interest for me. It did as it clearly states on the website which was made me feel super refreshed and rejuvenated and made my tummy feel good. I definitely would try this teatox again in a few months time if I wanted something to clear out my system in a good way with, especially as it's filled with nice natural ingredients.
