And so my love affair with tropical florals continues.
You may notice that I am flashing my bare arms for the first time in recent memory. I often get asked in the comments section why I always wear cardigans and tights, even on really pleasant days.
I have a (quite common) skin condition called keratosis pilaris on the upper outside of my arms, where it's been since I was a child - but in recent years has started to develop on my forearms and legs. If you're not sure what this is, it basically means I have little red marks on my skin which look like slightly aggravated goosebumps.
It's one of those things that people tend not to notice until I point it out, but it doesn't stop me feeling self-conscious.
There is no 'cure' as such, but there are certain remedies that are supposed to help it along - one of the most popular being continually moisturising and exfoliating the area, as well as the use of sun beds.
The latter is completely out of the question for me, as beside all the other scary factors I burn at the mere sight of sun - however I've been fake baking for the last few weeks which helps to somewhat disguise the weird red bumps.
One of these days I'll hopefully be able to feel confident enough to flash my pasty, chicken skin off in all it's glory - but for now it's a work in progress.

My favourite clutch bag, which was under a tenner at Forever 21.
I can't wait for one to open at the MetroCentre later this year!
(As well as a Krispy Kreme but let's not get into quite how excited I am for that - typical fat girl!)
I've had a quieter week that usual - which always happens when it's the school holidays.
Everywhere is crowded (even the metros) and it's incredibly frustrating attempting to shop at all when people set their little darlings on the loose and they end up playing hide-and-seek in the sale racks.
(As you may have gathered, I'm not a kid person. I'm sure if I ever have one, I'll quite like mine - but for now this particular scene with the little boy eating pesto from Sex and the City comes to mind:)
