Chromeo - Jealous
Both my brothers were telling me to listen to Chromeo for such a long time and I can't believe it took me so long. I love the electro/funk combination, they've become a go to for when I'm getting ready for a night out! I'm loving all of their albums but my top tracks have to be Jealous, Sexy Socialite and Needy Girl.
Haim - If I Could Change Your Mind
Oh my god I absolutely adore Haim, I haven't felt like this about a new band since I discovered Florence & The Machine. They have such a cool 80's sound, they look incredible and I can't get enough of their album. I love every song. I've pretty much had their album on repeat since Christmas, every song is amazing but my favourites have to be If I Could Change Your Mind, Running If You Call My Name and Don't Save Me.
College Featuring Electric Youth - A Real Hero
I only found this track the other day but it's already become a firm favourite. I was (finally) watching Drive and this song is in the soundtrack, the film was incredible and this song just complimented it so beautifully. I must have listened to it 20 times since Sunday. The rest of the soundtrack is awesome too, definitely one to take a look at if you are into your electro.
Julian Casablancas - 11th Dimension
Being a massive fan of The Strokes, they were the first band that I really loved (along with Jimmy Eat World!) and I still listen to their first two albums quite a lot. I've also always adored Julian Casablancas voice and along with the electro/synth direction he's going in, this is my favourite track of his solo album which came out in 2009. Hoping he releases some new stuff soon.
Daft Punk Featuring Julian Casablancas - Instant Crush
I've been a fan of Daft Punk for years now, their Discovery album is an all time favourite so I've been loving their current return to the mainstream. Instant Crush is probably my favourite off the Random Access Memory album, it's not often that two of my favourite artists collaborate so this song is such a treat for me.
I love the pattern of these sweet daisy print shorts from River Island, they have such lovely summery feel to them and I always feel more comfortable in shorts than I do in skirts. I've wanted this River Island cut out top since last year but never purchased it (god knows why?) it's such a classic design and I know I've got so much that I could wear it with! As much as I love my cut off black levi's these River Island shorts look a little lighter so they'd be great for wearing in the theme parks, I can just imagine my levi's taking days to dry if they get wet on the water rides! I've been looking for a nice yellow top to go with a couple of pairs of shorts I brought last year and this New Look cami is perfect, I might have to buy 2 or 3! I'm a sucker for a pretty skirt, and this New Look one is so gorgeous and summery, the colours in it are so beautiful and the skater style is so flattering. I'm not usually a maxi dress person, I don't think I even own one, but the pattern of this one is so cool and it would be lovely in the evenings. I adore this little monochrome mini, it could easily be dressed up for evenings out or worn casual during the day, it's definitely top of the wishlist! I'd really like another pair of sandals for the holiday too, I know I had a recent shoe splurge but these ASOS ones look a little more sturdy and the colour is gorgeous!
I've been looking for a Breton tee for such a long time but could never find one that fit nicely and wasn't way to expensive, I picked this up on a bit of whim but I know I'm going to get a lot of use out of it, I've already worn it twice! I picked up these three cropped tees for my holiday, I love a crop top when it's sunny and these are such a nice shape, the scoop neckline is really flattering, I'm definitely going to pick up some more colours. Okay, the socks were definitely not a necessity but they just matched the top so well I couldn't refuse, and you can never have enough socks right?
I've been on the look out for some comfy and cool shoes to take on holiday for what feels like ages but having no luck! Luckily they had these cuties in Primark. I had a pair of the navy espadrills last year and I wore them till they fell of my feet, so for £4 I thought they were well worth picking up. The cute peach striped ones caught my eye too, they'll go with so much of my summer wardrobe. The tan strappy shoes are just what I've been looking for, tan goes with everything, they're comfortable and they were only £8, they are going to be perfect for my holiday.
Yeah, this is where it got a bit out of hand! I picked up my favourite make up remover, the wonderful L'oreal Micellar Solution, which I had actually run out of. Then I treated myself to the Bourjois Happy Light Luminous Primer, I actually couldn't help myself, I've been lusting over it for such a long time that I finally craved (Thank god I don't regret it! Expect a review soon). I also brought myself a new Baby Lips, I accidentally left my old one in a pair of jeans and washed it. Last time I brought a exfoliator I stupidly picked up one for combination skin, which I do not have, so that's been passed on to my mum and I picked up the L'Oreal Skin Perfection Exfoliator (again, I'll be reviewing this at some point). Finally I couldn't refuse an old favourite, the Soap & Glory Whipped Clean Shower Butter, it always leaves my skin feeling so soft and the smell is so incredible that it had to go in the basket!
