St Tropez Gradual Tan In Shower Lotion Review

Hello all, hope everybody is enjoying the summer!

As many of you may know, I am exceptionally pale (which I still cannot find the reason for as the rest of my family tan easily) and after spending a fortnight lying n a beach I will still only have the smallest tan ever - forget tanning in the UK, I'll just burn.
But Elle, I hear you say, just fake it?
My problems is, even the 'no streaks' fake tans that I have tried have gone streaky, clearly due to user error but I simply cannot apply the stuff - even gradual tan body lotions.
I don't think I can rave enough about this product. The St.Tropez Gradual Tan In Shower Lotion (that's a mouthful) is so easy and quick to use; just hop in the shower, apply the lotion (with the shower off) and wait 3 minutes (I clean my teeth or take off my make up) then rinse off!

Despite using this about 9 times so far, I have still never experienced streaks and my tan is still very natural looking. It also leaves your skin silky smooth so there is no need to moisturise afterwards - plus, you don't have to worry about getting orange stains everywhere!

I also collected feedback from the non - albino community and they found this just as brilliant as I have. However, if you want instant results, this isn't the product for you. The tan develops over the day (or night) after application and gives a healthy glow rather than a TOWIE tan.

The only downside for me is the price - £14.50. However, a little goes a long way and the tube is big (200ml). As far as I can tell, it is only available in Boots at the moment here:

Hope you have a great day :)

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…
