The Body Shop - Pink Grapefruit

Who doesn't love The Body Shop? I love going in and smelling all of the products. The staff are friendly and helpful and even their range of make - up is super pigmented and their brushes are sooo soft.

Probably one of my favourite scents is pink grapefruit. I find it refreshing and not too sweet as some scents give me a headache. As I have quite a few products, I thought I would write a little review to tell you what I thought.

 Clockwise from back left: Body Sorbet (moisturiser), Shower Gel, Body Mist, Eau de Toilette, Body Scrub - Gelee,

First of all, all of the products smell great and as with all Body Shop products, the scent is strong but not overpowering.

Body Sorbet - I know the picture isn't the most attractive but I thought I would show the consistency. I have never tried the sorbets before - I have plenty of the butters which are amazing but take a while to soak in. The sorbets are a lighter version I suppose. They soak in almost immediately leaving your skin feeling soft and smelling great. This will definitely get me to moisturise more! Also, I love that it is in a tube as scooping the butters can be a little messy and it also means this is more portable. 
Pink Grapefruit Body Sorbet 200ml - £8.00

Shower Gel - I love Body Shop shower gel. They smell brilliant and when I was using this in the shower the other day, from outside the bathroom, my mum could smell this. It leaves you feeling clean and smelling great and as the scent is so refreshing, it wakes you up in a morning. Lathers up really nicely and even more so using a shower puff. 
Pink Grapefruit Shower Gel 250ml - £4.00
Body Mist - Squirt it all over and smell great. Gives a really nice, subtle scent. My second bottle - I also recommend the Vanilla mist too. It is in a glass bottle which looks really nice but I prefer to travel with plastic bottles just in case. 
Pink Grapefruit Body Mist 100ml - £7.50

Eau de Toilette - slightly stronger than the mist as you just apply where you would put perfume but basically gives the same overall scent but as it is smaller, it is more portable and good to slip in to a handbag. It is also more expensive than the mist for 70ml less so I think I might just stick with the mist. 
Pink Grapefruit Eau de Toilette 30ml - £8.50

Body Scrub - Gelee - this scrub is brilliant, it is really good at exfoliating and gets rid of dry skin really well. The texture is strange (is is true to the Gelee part of it's name) but quite cool. The downside is that I find tubs a  bit of a nightmare in the shower as getting product out and not filling the tub with water have to be taken in to consideration. However, the scent is lovely and it works!

There are also many more products in the pink grapefruit range and these products are available in most of the Body Shop's fragrances.

Sixth Form Tips

Hi everyone!

If you're in the UK you might be preparing for GCSE results day (good luck) and there's a good chance you'll be planning on starting sixth form in September - you may have already had an induction day or week.

A few of you have messaged me on Instagram asking for tips about how to approach Sixth Form so I figured it was a concern for a reasonable amount of readers. Beginning P16 can be quite daunting and I wasn't really sure what to expect so I've put together this post to give you some tips that I've discovered over my time studying A Levels.

First up, a little bit of (school) background on me just in case you're new here: I'm a 17 nearly 18 year old about to start Y13 in September at a Sixth Form in a school in North East Derbyshire (although for arguments sake we'll just say near Sheffield). I have been at the school since Y7 however the Sixth Form is quite separate from the rest of the school and so nobody walks in to A Levels knowi…

The Books That Made Me

I'm a bookworm and proud. Before I made my YouTube channel private, I made a video defending the Twilight books (or rather all books) using the collection to argue my case that if a book gets someone to read, don't shame them for reading it. I stick by that absolutely. Any reading is beneficial to a person's development, especially when that person is a child.

I've been putting off writing this post for a while because quite frankly choosing my favourite books through the years is like choosing a favourite child and it's far too difficult. Therefore, please note that not all of my favourite books will be in here.

So maybe you're looking for some holiday reading material, inspiration for books to read to younger children or just fancy reading a nice, wholesome blog post. Here is my life through books.

An Opportunity to Reflect and Say Thank You

Since starting A2, time has been rather limited, hence the lack of blog posts recently. With Christmas and New Year fast approaching, I thought I would take a moment to reflect on 2017 and summarise some of the best moments of the year.

My time at home is quickly coming to an end; in September, all being well, I'll be off to university. I didn't realise until quite recently how much I take for granted while I am living at home. This year has been a year of change and a year to grow up, turning 18 has made me realise just how soon independence is going to come.

Perhaps it is this growing independence that has caused 2017 to be the busiest and most eventful year to date. It's been a year of exams and planning and looking around universities and opportunities. Yet it's also been a year in which I feel as though I've appreciated the incredible friends around me.

Without further ado, here are just a few highlights of 2017.

This trip seems like a lifetime ago ye…
