Where are you Spring

motelplaysuit motelplaysuit6 motelplaysuit2 motelplaysuit4Playsuit - c/o Motel // Jacket - Topshop (similar here) // Shirt - H&M // Bag - River Island

I'm just back from a couple of days away in Glasgow with my Mum and Brother - I won a £100 Hilton voucher through the lovely Claire's giveaway so thought it was about time I put it to good use. Basically the whole time was spent eating, laughing, shopping and doing Britney Spears impressions. Ok, that last one was just me. It was absolutely freezing both days but I was determined to wear my new Motel playsuit which, ironically, was sent to me as part of a Springtime parcel. In the end, the only solution was to wear it under this jacket, my trench and my tartan scarf. Oh Scotland, you really are a bundle of joy. Anyway, back to the parcel... Also included were these Palmer's Cocoa Butter products:

I'm always wary of moisturisers that have gradual tan in them - I either had a bad experience with one or am just a complete wetty, I'm not sure which - but was pleasantly surprised by this one. I put some on before bed and in the morning woke up with a subtle and, wait for it, streak-free tan. So, Sun... looks like I'll be faking it until you decide to arrive. The lip balm turned out to be my saving grace as the wind was doing horrible things to my poor lips. Thanks to this little baby they stayed moisturised and slightly tinted, what more could a pair of lips want?

The palmers gradual tan is amazing, swear by it! Love the play suit too dear, will be even lovelier in warmer weather if we actually get any. X

That playsuit looks incredible on you, love how you've paired it with that jacket. The post title made me laugh, I've been asking the same thing myself all day!

Argh this weather is driving me insane, its making me want to hibernate with all my wooly jumpers and never venture outdoors again. Its lucky that your lovely little playsuit still looks lovely despite the lack of spring-like weather!

That playsuit is gorgeous!! Sounds like you had a lovely time away- and the Hilton would be amazing! But yes, I am also very confused as to where Spring is. This is getting ridiculous now. x

Stop being such a babe!! great playsuit. ;)

Amy said...

That bag Amy!
I'm a pale girl and I usually don't really like the tanned look however, I'm deathly pale at the moment I need to take drastic action. So I may consider giving the Palmers a little whirl, thanks for the heads up!

Your hair looks great by the way :)

Lovely oufit.

That is one lovely playsuit. Also, the one and only time I tried gradual tanner I somehow gave myself a lovely penis shaped orange splodge in the middle of my leg, which was fun for all involved.
