How delicious are they? I remember baby spice having a similar pair of shoes. I loved them back then and I love them more now. I couldn’t believe my luck when I found them on depop like a month ago in my size I private messaged the seller and she was a rude bitch so I had a look on eBay and I found them there in my size I honestly couldn’t believe it they are so hard to find. And for half the price makes me so much happier. Unikkausa is the person I bought them off she was so lovely and they arrived so fast. I’m sure ye’ll be seeing them in many outfit post.

Thanks for reading 🙂

Hey guys! So Sunday just gone was a bank holiday I said I’d take a few snaps as I was getting ready and make a post of it! I was very stuck for time I was home from work at half six and had to be ready for 8.

So on Friday night I epilated my legs…nice bit of torture on a Friday night. On Saturday I exfoliated, I exfoliate every second or third day but I just did a deeper exfoliation I then moisturised waited for that to dry and finally I tanned…sounds like alot of work when you write it down. On Sunday morning I showered and put another coat of tan on my legs. I didn’t really need a second coat but I wanted it.

Epilater: Braun silk epil 3
Tan: Garnier no streaks bronzer
Exfoliator: Soap and glory sugar crush
Moisturiser: Soap and glory sugar crush

I finally got home from work on Sunday…longest day ever.
