NOTW (Nail of the weekend)

Hello my loves,

I hope you're all well and have had a lovely weekend.

On Friday I was invited to my besties brothers birthday drinks at the pub and I wanted to paint my nails because they were looking a little bit on the gross side, the previous polish I'd put on three weeks ago (yes I really am that lazy when it comes to nail polish) was cracked and just needed to be taken off. I'm not great at painting my own nails because my hands shake etc so please ignore any mistakes left at the side of my nails.

OPI is great nail polish (it should be for it's price) I only have one of their polishes just because they are quite expensive and I got this one on eBay a couple of years ago. They have some super nice colours and the bottles look massive. The star of this weekends nail is "Dim Sum Plum" and Rimmel "Black Cab" on my ring finger. I love Rimmel nail polishes, they seem to last for ages and the colours are really nice also.

So anyhoo, I'll get on to the picture.

Dim sum plum to me is a Magenta colour and Magenta is my favourite kind of pink. It's kind of like a purple pink and I think that's why I like it so much.

I know I don't have nice long nails and I am not so great at nail painting but I do love these colours together. I like the contrast of the pink and black on the ring finger. I think I'll be wearing my nails a lot like this this summer.

What nail polishes are you into at the moment? Are there any OPI polishes I need in my life?

Peace and Love

Update, haul and a makeover oh my :)

Hello my loves.

If you follow me on twitter you'll see that I was having a tough day yesterday, my mum found out that's she's going into hospital today, I won't go into specifics because it's personal but please everyone say a prayer for her. It seems like its one thing after another at the moment, but I'm waiting for the light at the end of this dark tunnel!

Anyway, feeling a little bit low I decided to pop to meadowhall and buy some new shoes. I wanted to buy a couple of the revlon lip butters and I picked out a couple but then decided I don't wear lipstick enough so I couldn't justify spending £7.99 on a lipstick. As I was in boots I thought I would stop by the clinique counter and have a look at their mascaras, just  because they're so gentle on my sensitive eyes. One of the lovely ladies who works on the counter came over to help me and I ended up having a makeover done (I didn't take pictures, it was getting late and the sun was against me) but it was really lovely to go and be pampered a little bit.

I went off to Primark, bought my shoes and then ended up in Superdrug after stopping off at Starbucks for a frappe and a skinny lemon muffin.

So here are the goodies that I got :-)

As it isn't boot weather anymore (I searched long and hard for some new ones even on the internet I just cant find any and I need some for college to stop hair getting on down my shoes) if you know of any sites that sells nice ones please link me. But I decided that as these bad boys were only £5 I would get a pair because they're just fun.  I love the bow and as they're made of material the backs of the shoes don't rub against my heels. 

I got some shoes from Primark last year and they had a pvc bow and they looked like the Hello Kitty bow so I was happy to see these guys. They were also only £5 so I had to grab them. They are the same as the other ones, soft material and I feel like they will work for college because they are black and I can wear them with leggings and my uniform.

I'd like to say sorry for the quality of these pictures, the sun was against me and I'm a bit annoyed, (obviously I didnt et the rimmel nail polishes from Primark) Don't you just hate primark? I mean I love it, it's cheap the stuff is great (at times) but, as you walk over to the tills they have these little bits and bobs buckets, I can't just pass bits and bobs! There is always a place for tatt and bits and bobs in my home lol. Anyway the nail polishes were £2 as you can see and the hair doughnut was £1 (which is about £6 cheaper than the ones you get from boots) I do have a black hair doughnut but I've lightened my hair now, so I figured I would get a brown one. I'm really into pastel nail polishes at the moment so I'm super excited to try these out and I will do notd's with mini reviews of each polish.

The last bits I got were these two hairdyes, they're on offer in superdrug so I couldn't resist, you know what girlies? I never can resist hairdye, I'm terrible for it, my house is just basically a salon lol. I just love changing the colour of my hair, I am aware of the damage but my hair seems to accept the dye. (again I'm sorry about the quality)

So there we have it, a small haul. I love buying new things even if it is only small.

Much love

Jewellery wish list

Hello beauties

Happy bank holiday Monday, today is the only day I didn't wake up with the Monday blues lol. I hope you are all well. It's a gorgeous day today, it's a bit chilly but I love it when it's like this.

I was having a look at a few posts a few weeks ago and came across Leanne's (A Slice of My Life) post about a cool website whom sell quirky jewellery. I had a look at the site and I was sat there for 30minutes in bed saying to myself "ooh I want that" to everything I saw lol. I love quirky things. When it comes to jewellery I love "out there" pieces. I like jewellery that makes people stare and wonder where I got it from. Stop talking Joy and tell us the site lol. The site is called Rings & Tings, the stuff they sell is reasonably priced and it just screams fun. I'm massively into jewellery at the moment, it's nice when you're wearing something plain to add a bit of a statement piece.

Anyway, this is a wishlist so I'll show you the things I am lusting after right now. (I haven't put the link for each piece but it is all on site for you to shop at your own convienience :D)




So there we have it, do you have any favourite sites where you get your jewellery? I'd love to check them out.

Much love
