Gel Manicure - Update #2

*Taken Wednesday 26th June - first day of being this colour*

Oh, get me and my new summery nails! - Bright coral/red with a silver glitter on the accent nail - very nice.
I wanted a brighter colour for my holiday and think this is perfect - it should also look good with a tan (fingers crossed!).

My Travel Essentials

The time has come where I can officially say that tomorrow I get to switch off from life at home, don the comfortable clothing, and board my plane to sunny, sunny Crete for the next two weeks. I am so excited and I can't wait to enjoy the Grecian sun and to just relax. However, this does mean that a fair amount of travelling will have to be done. I like to be as prepared as I can be so that my trip is as comfortable, for me, as possible. I thought I'd share with you which basic essentials I'll be taking with me this weekend...

Gel Manicure - Update

It's been just under two weeks since I had my first gel manicure done - read the post about that here. I am very pleased with the results I've had - my nails have definitely grown and are stronger than before.

Healthy Eating?

As many people do before a summer holiday, I have been trying to get a little slimmer and more toned so that I don't look too horrendous in my bikini...

Gel Manicure

Last week I made an appointment to go and get a gel manicure. There's a professional lady who is local to me who was advertising around our town - my mum had been a few times and she is so pleased with the results that I thought I'd give it a go...

OOTD: A Shopping Day

Excuse the messy room!

I'm usually never too fussed about a casual shopping trip outfit but I was rather pleased with this one so thought I'd share it...

Topshop released their Sheer Lips range a while ago now and I have wanted to try one for quite some time. Every time I see a tiny bit of sun peeping through the clouds, I get the urge to go summer-shopping. I was looking for a new colour for me to wear this summer and I feel like Nuclear is just the thing I was looking for.

Healthy Flapjacks - Recipe

Whenever I'm a bit peckish and want a quick snack I always seem to go for unhealthy options (chocolate biscuits mainly!) but recently I have tried to be a little healthier - especially when it comes to snacking! These flapjacks are great because they use Agave Syrup as a sugar/Golden Syrup substitute and are also very simple to make.

Summer Haul (?)

"Haul?!" Yes, haul. Well, a written version of a typical haul found on YouTube.

At the end of June I'm going on holiday to Crete with my family so I've done a bit of holiday shopping...and a bit of non-holiday shopping but it was just after pay-day and I couldn't help myself.

I'm pretty sure everything here is from either Boots or Topshop which just so happen to be my two favourite shops...

Current Base Make-up Routine

Now that the weather has got a bit warmer - I say that, but the brief spell we did have has come and gone, yet I remain hopeful! - I have switched up my make-up to make it a little more light-weight and softer for the Spring and Summer. I'm certainly not confident enough to brave the bare face and so a bit of coverage is an essential for me.
I'm going to break it down in to 5 steps...

Where We Are Tour 2014

A late release of tickets for One Direction's Where We Are Tour around 6 weeks ago allowed me to get tickets for me and 2 of my friends to travel to Manchester to see One Direction perform live on Saturday the 31st May at the Etihad Stadium. Words cannot describe how excited I was...and it still doesn't seem real!
