Today I woke up late, and just ended up throwing a quick outfit together. But Im surprised how much I liked it. I was sent this Motel Rocks  dress a few weeks ago to style for a "Spring Fever" feature in collaboration with Palmers Cocoa Butter. Now lets face it, it's freezing outside, its not spring. Its still bloody freezing. So heres my usual monochromatic take on a spring outfit, by spring I definitely mean the-crappy-weather-we-have-at-the-moment-spring. I layered up with my Forever 21 gilet and popped on my clunky Topshop Arabel Boots and I was good to go. I love these boots more and more every time I wear them. They are so masculine and chunky with a feminine edge coming from the cut outs. I love it. I also popped another layer of my Topshop fur coat on when I left the house to take some outfit snaps of Zoe. It's too cold, I hate it. Where is summer?

I was also sent some Palmers Cocoa Butter products to try out in the form of the Cocoa Butter Natural Bronze Lotion and the Cocoa Butter Tinted Lip Balm. The Bronzing lotion is a lovely moisturising gradual tanner, it's very natural and leaves my skin so soft and smooth. The lip balm is lovely, the colour isn't really to my taste but it feels lovely on the lips and perfect for protecting my lips from the cold air! It tastes like dark chocolate and cherries too which I think is pretty nice.

Tonight I'm off to take loads of stuff back to shops that I never ended up doing yesterday. I hate going into central London, it makes me lose the will to live. Especially when I need to return things. Sigh. I didn't end up going as I was too lazy/too cold! Mexican night is also on the cards as I've been craving fajitas all day! Also I've got a new video up on my Youtube Channel!
