I’ve mentioned before but palm print is my current love. I don’t know why I’m so drawn to it’s leafy goodness but I ‘aint complaining. This scuba style tee from Primark is very cool albeit very warming! Im determined not to ruin these Topshop silk shorts after I ruined my previous pair by accidentally popping them in the wash. They came out like silk knickers which was not the look I was going for! I was so happy to see them back in stock (although they are currently out of stock online) that I ordered them as soon as I saw them. Super soft, flattering and have taken me through a fair few seasons of wear!

Im current incredibly tanned (can you tell by my hideously orange complexion. I haven’t fake tanned in a long time and despite really loving being tanned, I think I forgot how much was the correct amount to use. I can confirm I am now a normal tanned shade! I used the Xen Tan Dark Lotion, which as the name suggests... very dark.

I’ve decided to celebrate Easter today as it was my Birthday yesterday. Im off to Central as Im going for lunch with a friend at my favourite Steak joint - Hawksmoor. Im sure I’ll talk about that more tomorrow but yeah! I really hope you’ve all had a wonderful extended weekend before having to head back to work tomorrow. I have a HUGE meeting tomorrow which may change everything for me so Im pretty stoked/pretty worried! If all goes to plan I’ll share it with you but yeah… cryptic Melrose!
Also thank you all for all your kind birthday messages! I had a wonderful weekend with friends and all your birthday wishes made it ever better!
