OOTD: Getting Shirty.

Shirt - Mango
Jeans - Warehouse*
Sandals - Topshop

After having a really lovely day shopping in Manchester with my friend, I ended up stuck in traffic for ages. After being so bored from sitting in traffic with left the motorway at the Trafford Centre to kill some time - hence these iPhone photos. We did eventually get home after 8pm! 

Anyway, this is what I wore for our shopping trip. I adore this shirt, it's actually from the Mango store in Barelona airport - I needed to spend ALL my Euros before flying home, obviously. It's really oversized and comfy, and I think it looks pretty cool with skinny jeans. I love the simpleness of this outfit too. It's so basic, yet I still felt like I'd made an effort to wear something a little bit different. This is the perfect look as we move into the Autumn months and the nights start to get cooler.

I'M GETTING A RABBIT.

Untitled #69
I have some VERY exciting news to share...next Thursday I will picking up my very own rabbit! After a extremely long wait, I will finally have a bunny back in my life. Of course, that means I've been obsessing over rabbit accessories and dragging the hubby into every Pets at Home store we pass so I thought what better time to do a sort of rabbit wishlist.

This is going to be one very spoilt bunny. I've kept rabbits in the past and I'm pretty knowledgeable about them from working at Pets at Home. I've been hunting for lots of chew toys to make sure my little bunny keeps her teeth nice and short and we don't get any problems in the mouth department. She is also being kept as an indoor rabbit but with a run outside, so she'll have a lovely comfy bed to sleep in and lots of fun playing in the garden. 

The bunny I'm getting is the same marking as the one in this photo, which in the rabbit world is known as otter. She is a Netherland dwarf X English rabbit, so I expect her to be a little cheeky. She also doesn't currently have a name, so any suggestions would be more than welcome. And apologies in advance for all the rabbit spam from next week, I'd like to think she will become a big part of Gold Dust.

Do you have any pets?

The Body Shop Sorbet in Moringa.


As soon as I saw these Body Sorbets hitting the blogging world I knew I had to try one. I've read hundreds of reviews before they were released in the shops and I really couldn't wait to get my hands on a bottle. I was lucky enough to get a few small samples at The Body Shop event I went to earlier this year and ever since then I've been addicted. 

The sorbets come in most of the fruity signature scents from TBS, as well as this one in the Moringa scent. I've never picked up the Moringa range before but the sample of this completely converted me, so I knew I needed to pick up the full size. It's a really floral, feminine scent and works so well as a body moisturiser. 

The actual texture of this moisturiser is like no other I've ever tried. It is, as the name suggests, a sorbet-like texture. It comes out the bottle looking quite frosty in texture and once rubs into your skin it just disappears leaving you super soft. This is a really light moisturiser, it's non-greasy and dries in seconds, so it makes getting ready much easier. Plus it leaves the scent on your skin for hours after you've applied. I'm so addicted to this I've even picked up the Grapefruit bottle to try too.

These sorbets are prices at £7 for 200mls, but look out for those discount codes for TBS as I got mine at 40% off - a total bargain.
