I'm Gonna Paint You By Numbers And Colour You In


Today's NOTD is this amazing bright polish from models own called Hedonist which I picked up from the clothes show. Its such a gorgeous neon pinky orange colour! It also has a matte finish which I really quite like, I'm not use to matte polishes but I think I'll have to buy some more to add to my collection! The only thing that irritates me with this polish is how unbelievably quick it chips, I'll paint my nails and within a few hours it will already start to come off in places and I'll have to paint over them again which is rather annoying! But even with this I just love the colour after wearing so many dark polishes this has brightened up my nails and has got me looking forward to spring/summer!

Hope your all having a lovely day!

Where There's Tea There's Hope

Hello Lovelies, 

I wanted to share with you this teapot I was given  for Christmas from my friend Jessie. I absolutely love it! Being the tea lover that I am this was just the ideal gift, its so cute and very patriotic its taken pride and place on my windowsill with all my other little nick-knacks. I think I'm actually going to get a few more little teapots with all kinds of prints and have a mini collection as I love this one so much. 

Do you have any little nick-knacks you collect or would like to? 

Hope your all having a nice day!

Its a nice light weight jumper which could easily be worn all year. I've gone grey crazy the last few weeks everything I've bought is either grey or black..

I also recently picked up this necklace from Primark for £1 and I've worn it to death already, I don't actually wear jewellery that much I always forget about it, but I'm liking the statement necklaces I've seen about lately shall have to start building a little collection!

Soap and Glory Hand Food Review

I have been using Hand food for round about a year now, and it is by far one of my favourite hand creams! Before ever using this I used hand creams every so often but it wasn't something I really thought about but since January last year the skin on my hands became so unbelievable sore and flacky was just horrible! I tried a fair few hand creams but they just felt greasy and just sat on your skin for ages leaving a nasty residue. One day I was looking and 'borrowing' my sisters things and saw she had this and gave it a little try, and oh lordy I fell in love! Its so moisturising on your hands with having shea butter, macadamia oil and marshmallow in and smells so yummy too! It absorbs really quickly and your left with soft smooth hands without that horrible greasyness. This is just something my hands just cant cope without especially in winter and shall continue to be staple hand cream. 

Hope your all having a lovely day!

Now i'm just chasing time with a thousand dreams


Over the last week I've been a little poorly, being bed ridden hasn't been much fun for the first week of the new year but I've felt a little better over the last day or so, and sounding very manish at work has been a little treat for customers! I am a lover of shirts and this check shirt I have worn so much over the last few months, I simply love it! Its so easy to throw on and still stylish, and was a total bargain from Primark for £9, definitely be getting some more. I teamed it with this top from the brand oh my love, I got from the clothes show which was again a total bargain! I recently had a little nose on Ohmyloveclothings website and really liked some of the items on there, shall be making a sneaky purchase I think! 

Hope your all having a lovely week!

Happy new year you lovely bunch! 

I can't believe its 2013 where on earth did 2012 go, went by so quickly! 2012 was a good year for me, so many things happened, changes made, finished college with triple distinction and got a scholar award for my grades. I met some lovely people and was the year my lil' blog started back in august, I have loved every minute of joining this lovely blogging community and can't wait to see what this year brings for me and my blog! I've set my self goals for this year not massively huge ones but little things I want to accomplish for 2013. 1. I saw this on Pinterest a few weeks ago and thought it was such a cute idea, get a little glass jar and when ever you do something or see something that makes you happy and smile jot it down and put it in the jar and then when the new year comes around again you can rethink about all those memories you've made over the past year. 2. Figure out what I want to do in the long run career wise, I've thought about this a lot over the last few months and it baffles me that I'm still unsure what I want to do, but I think I need to do find something I'm seriously passionate for and do it no matter what the challenges are. 3. Challenge my self this year say yes to things that I would normally say no to never know what could happen. 4.Travel, I've always wanted to and this year shall be the year I plan to even if its not far, I want to see the world and all the wonderful things in it! 
These are just a few thing I want to do this year and hopefully I shall stick to them! 

Hope your all had a wonderful time over the holidays!
