Lifestyle: Life Through My Camera Roll #6

It's been far too long since my last 'life through my camera roll' post, I usually try to make them a monthly edition, (catch up here) so I thought it was about time I caught you up on what I've been loving/doing/munching lately! 
I've been feeling so happy lately, as it is finally starting to feel like Spring here in the UK. I've been wearing my new gorgeous lace up flats, I've had my eye on these beauties for a while now and finally picked myself up a pair from Primark. So comfortable, and they look great paired with skinny jeans - I can't wait until the weather really starts to warm up, so I can wear them with bare legs and a midi dress. 

Speaking of fashion, I popped into TK Maxx a few weeks ago for a nosy, and treated myself to some new workout wear. There were so many pieces I fell in love with, but I managed to restrain myself from buying the whole shop and just picked up a matching set. I love the fit and style of these leggings, they have a wide waistband which sucks everything in, and the cutest ruched detailing on the bottom. The vest is also pretty fab, it has a built in bra band which is a great support while working out.

Me and my boyfriend Ian, headed to a local food market on our weekend off a few weeks ago. I love food markets, fairs, festivals - if there's food, I'm there! We spent a sunny afternoon wandering around the delicious stalls, and had a spot of lunch.
There were so many dishes to choose from, the paella looked amazing - but I opted for the falafel and homemade houmous pitta bread, with tabbouleh salad. It was delicious and really hit the spot.
I also treated myself to a churro, I couldn't resist! I went for the Black Forest churro, which comes with cream, berries and chocolate shavings - so decadent, but oh so good!

Speaking of decadent, I've been obsessed with the Rebel Kitchen mylks. I love all of the flavours, my favourites being the chocolate orange, chai and matcha green tea. They are delicious, nutritious and satisfy those sweet cravings. 

I am a huge green tea fan, I guzzle my way through cups and cups of the stuff every day. So when I spotted this beauty while doing my Tesco shop, it went straight into the basket! Strawberry cupcake green tea? I mean, doesn't that just sound amazing! It tastes delicious, it has a very sugary strawberry scent and I will definitely be picking up another box!

I finally bit the bullet and got my hair cut last week. I'd been putting it off for months, as I just feel so uncomfortable in that chair. But I got it out of the way, and it wasn't too bad at all. I love my new do, I went a little shorter than usual as I wanted to take some of the weight out of my hair. It feels so light and bouncy, love!

I popped in to Boots a few months ago as I had run out of my favourite Porefessional primer, and was looking to pick up a new one. I went for a drugstore brand this time, and gave the Collection primed and ready one a whirl. It mattifies my skin like a dream, feels soft and is lovely to apply. It also contains Witch Hazel, with it's anti-blemish properties is a great bonus for keeping those blemishes at bay. I've already repurchased this beauty, I'd highly recommend if you are looking for a great value pore-minimising primer.

Lately I've been struggling to drift off at night - as soon as my head hits the pillow I seem to have too many thoughts and worries whizzing through my brain, which is making nodding off that much harder. I won this 'Sleepwell sleep spray' in a Twitter competition a while back, and I had never gotten around to using it, so I thought I would give it a go. I'm a sleep spray convert - I find a few sprays on my pillow really does the job. I feel calmer and much more zen when settling down in bed. I love the aromatherapy scent, the combination of lavender, petitgrain, grapefruit and rosewood is heavenly. Snooze away.
I hope you enjoyed this 'Life through my camera roll' post, What have you been loving lately? Have you ever tried a sleep spray before?
