Zara pleated top & Mango patent peep-toe stiletto heels

Got my hair cut today and while I was strolling around town I picked up these two beauties...
Zara pink top with front pleating, I adore the black one so I figured a lighter color would be nice for summer

 I've been looking for a pair of nude patent peep-toe heels for AGES but haven't found ones that I liked, until I came across these...
I just couldn't resist, they're the perfect shade of nude and just the right height (heel is 11 cm and the platform is 2 cm).

Long time no blogging... I've been busy with various things this past week. Quick update on the St. Tropez tanner. Turns out I'm not allergic even though I had a bad reaction at first, I took a shower before applying the tanner so I'm 95% sure that's why my skin reacted so badly. Anyway the color is great, it develops into a lovely golden tan within a few hours (not oompa loompa orange). The application is super easy and it dries in just a few minutes, the only thing I would caution you about is leaving it on your skin before blending it out. You really need to work one area at a time with the mousse in order to avoid uneven patches.

Hair Inspiration + St. Tropez Gradual Tanner

 Getting my hair cut in a few days... long layers and easy brushed out curls- LOVE IT! 
 My ridiculously pale body is gonna get a bit of a boost with the help of this little magic mousse- The St. Tropez Everyday Gradual Tan Mousse
 First thoughts: The smell is pleasant, quite strong since they've clearly used something to cover up the biscuit scent most tanners tend to have but it's by no means overwhelming. 
The mousse is super easy to apply and it dries in no time, unlike many lotions that take forever to be absorbed. Most importantly it doesn't irritate my skin... yet at least. I had a very bad experience with the Dove summer glow tanner last year. I did a patch test and it was fine but when I later applied it on my legs it didn't take long before the burning sensation started. Hopefully St. Tropez will be better, I'll keep you updated on how it goes.

First of May

Sunshine, champagne, delicious food and fantastic company, what more could you ask for? Yesterday was Labour Day here in Finland which meant it was time to chill the champagne, box up some snacks, slap on some sunscreen and head out for a day in the park...
 We were blessed with beautiful weather
