today i love… the sunday wish list

When you're super pale like me you are naturally suspicious of fake tans; after all there's nothing worse than ending up orange and streaky. It also always seems like a lot of effort. But I've heard good things about this new St. Tropez lotion which you can use in the shower. Minimal fuss and it builds gradually so hopefully minimal orange-ness too. Much safer than the real thing, after all.

I long been a big fan of Marc Jacobs' Splash fragrances. They smell amazing, look amazing and are great value for money. This year he's launched three new scents: Pear, Cotton and Rain. After extensively testing them all, I decided Cotton is my favourite. It's subtle yet memorable, plus you really can't beat that bottle for a minimalist's packaging dream.

3. & Other Stories open toe sandals / £40 (reduced from £79)
The sales are on! For me this always means a ridiculously oversized & Other Stories box arriving on my doorstep. This almost always includes a pair or two of their stellar shoes, which are some of the best on the high street. I love these super wearable yet stylish sandals.

4. Whistles cold shoulder bandeau dress / £120 (reduced from £195)
… And of course I can never resist the Whistles sale either. I've had my eye on this beautiful dress for a while now so needless to say it was straight in my basket when the sales hit. It's not cheap, but it is amazing quality and such a classic. There's a reason it's a cliché to say every woman needs a knockout black dress in her wardrobe: because it's true.

I'm a sucker for a beautiful hand wash and lotion set: nothing makes a bathroom look classier. I'm obsessed with Grown Alchemist's gorgeous orange & vanilla duo, but if you are looking for a budget version, H&M's recently relaunched bath & body range comes with some seriously divine packaging. This hand wash in particular looks way above its tiny price tag.

It's bikini season! My top swimwear pick at the moment is this white Topshop set: simple, classic and good value to boot.
