A Floral Bardot | Spain OOTD

Jaide Poppy

Every year I get out the same bag of summer clothes and add a few new pieces into the group, just to spice it up a bit and don't know about you but Primark is an obvious place to hit up. Being cheap, stocks current on trend items and tbf, the quality isn't that bad for what you pay. 

I really wish I could link my Primark clothes on here for you as I love this dress. The colours, the pattern and the fit is perfect. I wore this on an evening when my prickly heat was really bad and felt a bit self conscious. Comparison is a b***h and I'm a sucker and let myself do it often, maybe too often. Seeing all these beaut ladies on Insta in their bikinis with their perfect figures and perfect tans makes the pale English rose that I am feel kinda down. But having said this, this Bardot dress actually helped me to forget that around my chest and tops of my arms and enjoy the evening.

I'm sorry to break this to you, but the white bag is super old and from good old Primark. The whole wicker bag trend is booming right now and there's my mum telling me to sort through my hoarding stash. I love it and keeps my camera, purse and phone safe and sound. 

As you may already know I'm a huge Matalan convert and am pretty in love with their stuff right now. These shoes are one of my latest bargains. Tan, tie up and have that summer feel so I was one happy Jaide when I saw them for only £8! Like say what?!? I had my eyes on a pair incredibly similar from Marks & Spencer but never got round to buying them. But two days before I was supposed to jump on that plane I made a mad rush to Matalan, spotted them and had the biggest Cheshire Cat smile ever. 

Of course my earrings are the Jewellery Box hoops that I AM OBSESSED WITH and they are in my ears most days.

Every time I edit these holiday OOTD posts it makes me miss the holiday more and more. That chill life where you have no care or worries apart from when you'll next eat and drink. Isn't it just bliss? But hey ho here's to the next trip..... where shall I go? I'm thinking either Dublin or Amsterdam in the next couple of months. Vote in the comments!

For The Love Of Cucumbers and Skincare

AD with Yes To Good morning and happy National Cucumber Day! I love cucumbers! There, I said it. I like to eat them, drink them in juices and smoothies, and even like them in my skincare routine. Over the last couple of months I've really struggled with my skin. Getting hard lumps under the skin, and rash like breakouts that were super persistent and refused to die down. I thought about whether or not I was using too many different products and clogging up my skin, or it was just down to stress or something. All I knew was that I had to give something a go and hope for it to work it's magic on my problem skin as it was getting me down. What a day to share my love of cucumbers and my love of the  Yes To Cucumber  range with you cuties. Make yourself a cheese (vegan cheese if you're like myself) and cucumber sandwich and take a read about a range you'll want try!  It may shock you to see an entire range made with cucumbers, but it's actually a

How To Read More & What I Read In May

*gifted items and affiliate links Hi mates, it's been a while!  So, I've had quite a few requests to create a blog post all about how I read so much. Don't get me wrong there are loads of people out there that read way more than me. But I average 4 books a month, however with lockdown in the UK I've been able to rack up my monthly average.  Let's just jump straight in to how I read as much as I do. 1 ~ Choose books you WANT to read This sounds super obvious, however I myself have been known to follow book trends and pick up a book because it's all over the gram, or because my favourite influencer has told me to read it. Doing so can result in books you just don't get in the flow of reading and books you don't want to actively pick up.  Know what genres you like to read. Know what authors you like and do some digging to make sure you pick wisely. Sometimes you will be disappointed with a book that you feel you should of enjoye

Easy To Make Zero Waste Coffee Body Scrub

I'm back on this blogging hype and I'm feeling super inspired to get my space of the internet up and running again. Basically I thought I knew what I was doing in the back end of my blog (theme, settings etc) and for a few months I couldn't do anything until my friends life saver boyfriend sorted it for me! So, lets jump into a cosmetic, zero waste body care at home post and something I'm loving using in my daily shower routine.  It doesn't cost the earth, makes your skin ultra soft, and all you need are things from the kitchen cupboard.   I don't know if you've seen the companies selling coffee scrub or very similar products for around £6 and up, so making something like this thats fresh and uses up a waste bi-product and cupboard essentials means you're saving money as well as saving the purchase of a product!  Items I use in my homemade body scrub: * Coffee Grounds * Coconut Sugar 4tbp * Vanilla Extract 3tsp First things first, the co
