I caved. I brought a black fedora. I've wanted one for as long as I can remember but thought the trend wouldn't last and now I want about three more. Yep. They just have an effortless style that draws us all in and makes us want one in every possible colour and style. I have styled it up with the khaki sleeveless vest that I got last summer in the New Look sale - without realising they would come into fashion again!

I'm in the first week of my new job now and its so much fun. I love having to be active for 6 hours a day, it frees up my evenings for blogging and allows me to fund third year much easier. I've somehow managed to accumulate a ridiculous amount of pennies too, which added up nicely for that.

SOLAIT WEAR OFF '60 MINUTES EXPRESS' SELF TAN.



Yep, thats a plane ticket from last June, my brothers graduation specifically.
I found it tucked inside my passport while trying to create a cute flat lay. 

I'm a big tanner. Since the age of 16 when a boy in school told me I looked 'hotter orange', that was it, I was a tanned gal forever more. I remember buying my first tan which smelt like oranges and looked like chocolate syrup! 

This Solait tan was a huge impulse buy. I came to my boyfriends for the weekend looking pale as a parsnip, so I went to the nearest Superdrug and picked up the cheapest fake tan that they had costing only £4.69. Its one that I hadn't used before but if my holy grail St Moriz wasn't available, there was no other choice. Upon first use, my friend Tash actually noticed how strong it smelled and I have to admit it is fairly 'biscuity' but its a scent that I don't mind too much. 

The tan is a foam that needs shaking before use and it has a fairly orange colouring. One pump is more than enough to cover one area of my body (lower arm, lower leg, stomach) but if I want to do a larger area at once then I just use two and apply with my self tan mitt. It glides on fairly easily - I'm yet to have a streak and I've been using it twice weekly for a month now! 

I'd recommend this if you're looking for a low priced, natural looking tan for a night our or weekend away. Its only flaw is that it does fade within two showers so it needs applying regularly.
