My Record Collection

A couple years ago I decided to get a record player and I'm really happy about that because I love listening to records. There's something about hearing the slight crackle from the speakers that makes the songs feel more intimate and special. I thought I'd show you a few of my favourite records and hopefully it will provide you with a new favourite album. And for those of you wondering I buy my records from HMV, Urban Outfitters and Amazon.

Going by genre these are my two pop records. Troye Sivan is one of my favourite artists so when he released his new album Blue Neighbourhood I had to get it on vinyl. I also have Ellie Goulding's Delirium which is just a fun and upbeat album. 

I have a few more alternative records because that tends to be my favourite genre of music. The first record I ever bought was AM by the Arctic Monkeys. I also have Chvrches new album Every Open Eye and Halsey's Badlands which are both amazing records!

My Favourite Products for Summer

I always feel like summertime is when my skin looks the best and that's because I actually have time to take care of it and I'm not constantly breaking out in stress acne. I have been using Lush's Angels On Bare Skin face cleanser to wash my face every day and it has made such a difference. I have also been using Herbivore's Blue Tansy mask which has been great after a day in the sun since it has a slight cooling effect. When I do find the odd spot on my face I have been applying Mario Badescu's Drying Lotion which helps clear it up quickly.

Another thing I have been loving for a couple months now is Smith's Rosebud lip salve which smells and feels amazing! As for fragrance, I've been wearing my signature scent which is Chanel Chance perfume in eau tendre. I have been spending a lot of time outside in the sun which tends to dry out my skin so I've been using Peter Thomas Roth body lotion to clear up my dry skin.

The last product I've been loving is a …

June Haul

Last weekend I finally went shopping again mostly because I needed to get new shorts. I picked up a pair from Urban Outfitters and Zara because they both had good sales going on. I still need to get some new denim shorts but this was a good start. I also picked up just a plain white shirt from Brandy Melville because I find their shirts are good quality and last a long time.

I've been wanting to try out Mario Badescu products for a while now so I got the Drying Lotion to test out and I've really been liking it so far. I also got this jewelry box from Urban Outfitters because it was on sale and I thought it would be great to display some of my jewelry in.
