So this is definitely a bit of a nail fail but I'm going to retry it with different polishes, the theory is pretty pastel base with neon polka dots over the top, in my head it looks amazing but it just didn't quite work out on the nails - what do you think? Any idea's on what Neon's I should use? I found all of mine were just a little bit sheer so it didn't quite translate properly!

NOTD - Pastel w/ Neon Polka Dots

So I had a little bit of a splurge this weekend, I've been feeling a bit "meh" this week and I always feel better when I go and spend my hard earned cash on some beauty products to feel better....It kind of worked, now I just feel a bit guilty for spending so much money a week before pay day - ah well! Hope you're all having a lovely weekend :) x




I picked these up at Wholefoods Market, it was buy 2 Antipodes products and get the Aura Manuka Honey Mask for free so I couldn't help myself, I picked it up along with the Deliverance Hand Cream and the Grapeseed Butter Cleanser (which I've wanted to try for ages!) It was £42 in total for all 3 which isn't too bad I guess :-/ So excited to try all of these!












Acorelle White Orchid Anti - Stress Eau De Parfum

I am obsessed with the smell of this - it's down as an Anti-Stress perfume and it reminds me a little bit to parma violets, it's got quite a sweet scent but spicy as well and it's not sweet in the young sense, it's definitely a grown up smell if you get me? I'll do a review on this and post it up shortly. 



Finally, I picked this Zoya polish up in Julie which is quite a sheer pale pastel lilac with a hint of shimmer running through. This was £12 



Hope you enjoy! x

HAUL: Wholefoods Market - Antipodes, Zoya & Accorelle

I'd heard amazing things about this polish and was extremely excited to try it, the colour is so pretty, a really bright blue, similar I would say to Barry M Blueberry Ice Cream (Blueberry Ice Cream is just a creamier, slightly paler blue) and also to Essie's Bikini So Teeny. The formula is high shine, which is great, but it's a little gloopy however 2 coats just about gives perfect coverage. I really don't like the brush on this though, I don't know why, but I really struggled to get a rounded edge at the top of the nail. I don't know, I'm just not in love with this which I really wanted to. I do however love the colour of this so I might give it another couple of go's - I'll let you know if I change my mind. 

You can pick this up in Boots for £3.99.

NOTD - Barry M Gelly Blueberry Nail Polish

Hi All, 

Another haul post here of some purchases over the past month or so, I have another few haul posts lined up of some online purchases as well in the next week or so, so keep an eye out!

I'd wanted a set of the Skullcandy headphones for quite a while then spotted these in TK Maxx for £16 and had to buy them - I really wish I didn't, they look pretty but they're useless, the sound escapes really badly and they constantly fall off.



I picked this little Vase up in TK Maxx for £5.99, I'd been looking for something to store my makeup brushes in and thought this fit the bill.








I can't remember the shop I picked this up in but it was a little gift shop near Stroud, this smells like heaven, it's like a Vanilla, Honey & Oat smell - so nice, I think burn time will be quite quick though with this, which is a shame because it was £8 for a relatively small candle, the packaging is super pretty though.




These neon hairbands were a bargainous £1 from Primark, I got another pack and keep them in a see through glass on my dressing table, looks really pretty!


I also picked up this necklace in Primark for £1.50 (I think), It's really pretty and I think it will look really nice in the summer to add a bit of glam to a black dress. 





Another necklace from Primark, this was £2, I'm still not 100% sure about this, again I thought it might look nice against a black top or dress, I like the style, just not sure about the colour, but for £2, I couldn't not get it.




This was my favourite purchase, I love this necklace, it looks great with most outfits and can really "jazz" up a plain top, I get loads of compliments on this but sadly the clasp has broken already, this was £3.


I haven't used one of these Eyelash combs in forever so I decided to pick this up, It was only £1.99 but they're not as good as I remember, not quite sure what I was expecting from it though!
I picked this Scandaleyes Eyeliner up in Nude from Boots, there's been so many good reviews of this so I'm looking forward to giving it a go.



Finally, I picked up this Natural Collection blusher in Peach Melba and I LOVE it - review coming soon!
