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…

'Lads' Trip to Skeggy - Travel Tips for Teens

This post is a little late in the writing but as summer is coming up and many teenagers will have some free time and be considering a mini break with their friends, I thought this might be useful. During February half term, my friends and I (4 in total) took the train and visited Skegness for 2 nights and three days. Here I thought I would give you a brief outline of our trip and some tips and tricks to make everything run smoothly and not break the bank!
We chose to use to compare hotels and ended up choosing the North Parade B&B, we got two twin rooms, both of which had ensuites. After reading the reviews, it seemed to have friendly staff and was in the perfect location: a 10 minute walk from the train station and right on the sea front so easy to access everything, which is something to consider if you don't drive. Another thing I would definitely recommend is calling the hotel you choose to stay in if you're under 18 or even 21, some of the places we looked…

Bold and Bright: Summer Lipsticks for the Sunshine

Summer is finally here in the UK, we've had some beautiful, sunny days.
One of my favourite things to do in the summer is to play with bright and beautiful lip colours and so I thought I would compile a short list some of my favourite, affordable lipsticks to brighten your days over the coming months.

PS - my camera wasn't showing the colour of the swatches very well so I had to use my iPad to take picture swatches so the quality isn't great. PPS - the pictures were taken after 12 hrs of make up wearing so it's not looking great but my eye make up is a combination of Trick, Liar and Factory from the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette combined with the Too Faced Better than Sex mascara.

I could've picked so many but I tried to pick a small representation so it's not too overwhelming:
