Boots - Zara
Sunglasses - Jeepers Peepers (here)

Today, Jess and I headed out in the car for a bloggy day out and it was so much fun! I rarely get a day off, and even though we were working on blog stuff, it was so nice to get out of the flat and into some greenery instead of my usual London city scenery. 
I'm just gonna let the cat out of the bag here anyway and let you all know that we're actually currently working on a collaborative lookbook together, featuring looks from both of us to mix things up a bit!
This will be my first ever lookbook so i'm super excited, we spent most of the day working on the first couple of looks and we still have lots of work to do but I can't wait to edit it all and show you guys! I loved the first look from today so I couldn't wait any longer to post about it - how cute is this dress? This was pretty much the colour scheme from my entire Missguided order last month and I can't get enough of that print... I think I need the co-ord flare set too * insert heart-eyed emoji here *
Anyway, it's way  - keep posted for the lookbook coming soon!

Well, I gotta say... It feels good to be back and shooting outfits again and generally posting on here! Neglecting all of my favourite things in favour of my degree was so weird and made me pretty sad so i'm so happy to be back at it and onto to the next chapter in my life! *breathes in the sweet smell of freedom*
I did a pretty intense degree in fashion design, which turned out to be something my whole heart wasn't into and that was the hardest part of it all, especially when I was already doing other things in the area of fashion that I am mostly passionate about. I guess I still have PTSD from deadline anxiety as well as my safety net that was education being taken away from me, but I definitely feel so weird about it all - but excited too... Anyway i'm totally rambling a load of crap... But if anyone does want to know anything about my degree or uni life in general etc please fire away and maybe I can do a video or a post with all your questions :) 
Onto the outfit though... I'm still having massive 60's fever. I feel like that's just my thing in life now forever, 60's everything - just pass me the PVC and i'm officially done! Boohoo have so many cute zip through skirts at the moment aswell as 60's/70's inspired everything which is just right up my street (and probably every other fashionistas in the world this season...) I have a slight feeling this years groupie trend is just something that isn't going away anytime soon (insert heart-eyed emoji here).

So, I know i'm still getting back on my feet since finishing uni as I seem to be extremely busy still (but loving it!) - but today I have this months Look Fantastic box for you! Since my first box last month, i've definitely become a fan of this kind of element of surprise, especially when I opened this one to find that I LOVED every product in the box and they were all things that I could use, it's definitely safe to say that LF are the best when it comes to putting these boxes together...

If you read my last #LFBEAUTYBOX post, you'll know that the beauty of the #LFBEAUTYBOX is that you don't have to commit to any subscriptions. You can buy a one-off box, sign up for a 3 month subscription, 6 months, or a year - it's entirely up to you - however, you do save money by opting for the subscriptions if you feel it's probably something you will end up buying. 
Anyway, about this months box.... The first thing that jumped out at me, and every girls best friend when it comes to nights out and special occasions - the Eylure false eyelashes, but with a difference. This pair is the 'hassle-free' pair that has a self-adhesive strip instead of the temper-tantrum inducing glue we're all too familiar with! 
Next up is the Tanworx Self-tanning lotion that hydrates and conditions as well as tans, 'giving a natural, golden glow' - and since sunlight and I don't seem to get on all too well i'm definitely excited to give this a go these coming months for a faux-glow! 
Another product that i'm super excited about is the Christophe Robin Repair and Protect hair mask for all hair types. Now as someone who has coloured hair and mostly uses bleach (which I have done for around 10 years), my hair isn't always in tip-top shape, so I love a good hair mask to quick-fix those dry ends and tame down my mane when it gets a little out of hand - and this one promises 'sumptuous and smooth' results, boosting shine and protecting colour - and to lure you in even more smells pretty delicious too! 
For those of you into your anti-aging products, theres a little Transphuse treat in there too - the night serum to plump fine lines and make skin smoother and more youthful, and also claims to prevent additional wrinkles. I know i'm only 22, but for the past year i've been using anti-aging products - particularly Lancome, just because I had them in a huge gift package that I received and they felt amazing when applying and give a gorgeous glow - so this is definitely a product that won't be going to waste also. 
The Huile Prodigieuse multi-function dry oil. Now this is a product that has grasped my attention - an oil you can use on your hair, face and body, helping to soften and illuminate. I'm mostly curious about what it does for your hair, as I previously mentioned due to it being a little damaged. The product itself looks kinda shimmery, so i'm betting it's perfect for a little travel product when you've got yourself a nice, glowy tan. 
Last but not least is the Omorovicza cleansing balm which is a Hungarian cleanser that cleanses without stripping - but removes all impurities including make-up and mascara, 'leaving skin soft and hydrated'. I have awful skin at the moment from the daily Dominos ritual that deadline seduced me into so this is the perfect product to get my skin back on track again after being rudely neglected for a few weeks :( 

So, there you have it, the wonder that is May's #LFBEAUTYBOX! Let me know what you think of this months box in the comments, and make sure to follow my brand new Youtube channel that i've just started - it's still early days and I have lots to learn, but i'm definitely enjoying it - and who knows, maybe my next Beauty Box post will be an unveiling over on Youtube? ;)
