I have always been the biggest fan of Gwen Stefani (especially since she’s gone solo, her Love.Angel.Music.Baby album is one of my faves) and since the release of her Harajuku Lovers fragrance range a few years ago, I have always tried to get at least one fragrance from each collection. Now I’ve never been the keenest on the idea of the ‘celebrity fragrance’ as after collecting quite a few over the years, I noticed that they all essentially smelled the same and dare I say, smelt pretty cheap, however I am a huge fan of the Harajuku Lovers brand; not only because of the adorably shaped bottles, but because the quality of the fragrances are really really strong.

Every now and then, they come out with some gems, and this Spring is no different. At the moment, I am currently saving up for a few things so I’ve been popping into Primark more often for bits and bobs. The outfit below is all Primark everything and you may spot a couple of items I discussed in my previous Primark Haul video!

If you follow me on Twitter, you probably would have seen me tweet an email that I received from a so-called “reader” of my blog yesterday. You guys are all probably aware of the devastating news that recently took place in Charleston, South Carolina this week, and the email I received was in response to my tweets regarding the heinous, racist and senseless killings:
