I'm really getting into this YouTube malarkey. I uploaded this DIY Lavender Bath Salts tutorial a week or so ago, which you can view above. It's a super simple recipe for lavender-infused bath salts, which I keep making and using again and again. I hope to make more like this, as well as the usual talky, haul-y types.

Check out my latest collective haul too, which includes ASOS, New Look, Topshop, H&M and Boots.

If you're a cat fan, you're in luck too. Nola and Harry feature prominently so far, and it seems people like it that way! May my cats become famous one day.

I wake up in a panic, having not decided what to wear for work the night before - I don't normally, but photoshoot + launch party = dilemma / I decide on the above, get ready and greet the kitties / I walk the two miles to work, grab a box of goodies for photography, hop in a taxi and spend the morning at a studio, assisting in the imagery for the next issue / I enjoy my daily work lunch with Katy and, after popping on a pair of nude nights, we leave the office at 4 to go to St Pancras for a sewing machine launch party, which was great fun / we have a much-needed McDonald's on the train home and a good ol' natter, and I end up getting in at about 11:30 / After some necessities (showering, changing the cats' litter tray (yay) and sorting my life out) I get into bed to await Daniel's return / he works late a lot, so we end up nattering until 2:00am and, undoubtedly, I'm shattered the next day.

disco pants: Glamorous
kimono: Boohoo
tassel pendant: Primark
chunky gold ring: Primark
chunky black sandals: Primark

I am IN. LOVE. with these sandals. They're exactly what I've been after - comfortable black sandals, with a heel, chunky, double strap, ridged sole, affordable, boom. These bad boys cost £16 from Primark so I'm one happy camper.

They look especially good with my disco pants, which I sort of forgot I owned. Well, no more forgetfulness.

Are you on the chunky-heeled-sandals fashion train?

So I've ventured into the world of YouTube with a Primark haul. I picked up some really lovely pieces on Sunday at the Chelmsford branch, and couldn't resist sharing them with you all. Plus, there are cats.

I'd really appreciate it if you would like and subscribe. Enjoy!

smock dress: ASOS
denim jacket: H&M
round sunglasses: Primark
white sandals: Forever 21

'Scuse the fringe - I'm growing it out. Or at least that was my spontaneous decision a week or so ago, but when the process moves along a little I might regret it. [Big forehead].

This is my go-to summer outfit right now. Smock dress + denim jacket + sandals = done. Oh, along with my cheap as chips sunglasses - I'm very tempted to buy numerous pairs of these so as to quench my round sunglasses thirst for years to come.

Do you have a standard summer outfit?
