top five : instagram accounts

I'm a little ashamed to admit that I am one of life's Instagram addicts. Whether it's posting photos of my life, or scrolling through other people's amazing feeds it's safe to say it's possibly my favourite app ever invented. As part of my Top Five series I'd like to show you a few of my favourite accounts. It was SO hard to narrow them all down to just five so I may even do another one of these at some point in the future. I also couldn't put them in any sort of order as they're all as fabulous as each other so I've cheated a little and put them in alphabetical order instead, mwaha.

charlestown92 - First up is Charlie who's outfits are to die for. She is easily my favourite fashion-based account and I wish that her wardrobe was mine. She also has a lovely mix of other photos including some tasty food and places that she travels to. I love how Charlie's photos have a different edge to them with how they are edited which gives them a vintage touch.

katymitten - Now Katy is one of the sweetest ladies you'll ever come across on the old t'internet, and I've no doubt she's just as lovely in 'real life' (I dislike that term but can never think of another way to put it!). If you're a cat lover then you really should give her feed a visit as she has the most handsome puss called Runkle who seems like the cheekiest fellow around. Katy's taste in decor is perfect and I find myself wishing that she'd come and give me some tips for our flat!

lemon_freckles - Now where to begin with Toni!? Her life is filled with pugs, My Little Pony, Hello Kitty, the cutest decor and everything pastel-coloured. If that doesn't make you want to take a peek at her feed then I don't know what will! I just adore how everything is so colourful and bright. Toni is also a wonderfully creative lady who designs cards, brooches, etc. (Which reminds me: I must make a purchase soon!)

louise_eaton - Louise's photos regularly make me speechless with how utterly beautiful they are. She travels a lot and it's lovely to almost be there with her as she documents everywhere so fantastically. Her photos are always so sharp and the perspective is perfect. The photo above with the couple sat under a blossom tree is possibly one of the loveliest photos I've ever seen.

stefaniejwatson - Stef's instagram account contains the perfect mix of everything. From beauty, to fashion, to food that makes you want to eat forever. I could scroll for hours. I am also convinced that she is a literal goddess from the photos she posts of her 'make up of the day' as she always looks like perfection! I get a serious case of social media envy when it comes to this lovely lady.

Who are some of your favourite instagram accounts?

wishlist #3 : asos

Pleated Culotte Shorts | LANA Lace Up Ballet Flats | Jack Wills Buffalo Check Dress |
Ultimate Slim Coat | Skinny Twill Trousers | Popsicle Cross Body Bag

Ahhh, good old ASOS. They're always making me want to spend money that I don't have. *shakes fist* It doesn't really help that today is payday and instead of paying those pesky bills I just want to buy all of the above items. They're just a selection of the things that I've been lusting after lately. I mean come on, which woman doesn't want a bag the shape of a popsicle in her life!? I'm also loving all of the lace up shoes that are hot topic at the moment and this pair is just dreamy. Maybe I'll just pop one or two items in my basket...

What are you wishing for at the moment?

review : body shop tea tree pore minimiser

Over the past several months a big trend I've noticed on my bloglovin' feed is The Body Shop. The only time I've ever really visited in the past is to buy my nan her favourite ever scent which is good old White Musk, so I was intrigued about all of the positive posts I was seeing regarding their new skincare products. I finally made a visit on a whim at the end of May to see if anything caught my eye. I should've prepared myself beforehand really because I was fairly overwhelmed and only ended up coming away with one item, but I'll definitely do my homework and decide which other products I'd like to try for next time. (So, If you've got a favourite Body Shop product post please leave me a link in the comments as it'll be a big help!)

Now onto the item in question: The Tea Tree Pore Minimiser. First of all I love the whole look of this product. The Body Shop have great style in general with their eye-catching products, as I soon realised when I felt like a kid in a candy shop when I visited my local store, and this one is no different. It's a simple, attractive little bottle that is perfect for popping in your hand bag. I tend to find that people either love or hate the smell of tea tree but I'm firmly in the love camp and adore the scent of this. I think I'll definitely be investing in more of the tea tree range in future.

My face is a pesky little bugger that suffers from a multitude of sins including the dreaded big pores. My nose being the worst offender, of course, but also a few on my chin and top lip. (Dang do I make myself sound attractive!) This £7.50 squeezy, 30ml bottle of goodness soon helps me feel a lot less self concious though! As well as promising to reduce the size of pores (which it does, yay!) it also offers up smoother, mattified skin and is a fabulous little primer. My skin usually has a good old shine to it but this certainly does the trick and rids of that problem. This product has helped me feel a lot more confident on no make up days, which have become a regular occurrence because I'm a lazy so and so, and just generally leaves my skin feeling cool and refreshed.

Results - 5/5
Price - 4/5
Packaging - 5/5
Overall - 4.5/5
Would I repurchase? Yes.
