Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paint in Papaya

hey guys!


I recently purchased this gorgeous little thing; Barry M's new collection! When I got it, I didn't realise that it was a new thing (silly me), but it is sooooooo good.

Now, I am not the best of people when it comes to painting nails, one, because I can never apply it smoothly, and two, because I get it everywhere. However, it is amazing! It is available in 12 other colours, and all gorgeous colours by that! I also love the mint green one that they do.
As it is Gelly Hi-Shine, it leaves a gorgeous smooth and shiny effect once it has been applied and has dryed! The packaging is lovely - classy glassy (as I say!) and it is bigger to what you would think it would be! Meaning lots more applications! It leaves such a good shiny smooth surface that it could actually be mistaken for acrylic nails - until it chips anyway. But even then, it is said to be a lot more durable. A novice Nail Painters dream! AND, for £3.99 - you can't go wrong!

This is just a swatch of it (which to be honest, doesn't do it justice at all) and an identical one with just a glitter nail polish over the top as I wondered if the glitter would ruin the shinyness - but it didn't!

Oh and as I am on the subject of nails - which I don't too often, I added one coat of the Maybelline Salon Manicure Protecting Top Coat, and it made my nails SHINYER and it just adds that extra coat of durability which I feel that I need as I am so clumsy. So yeah, bigging up this little beauty!

If you like this nail post, then let me know and I will be sure to do more of them!

Marks & Spencer's Floral Vintage Bunting

hey guys, 

a close up

This beauty of a bunting that ever was made cost £7.50 from Marks & Spencers Garden Section. When I saw it, it didn't matter what the price was (even though it was actually quite reasonable), I just had to get it! It's longer than I first thought as well, 7ft in total!

I am honestly so happy with it. It makes me happy just looking at it! hehe!

Have any of you guys got that Vintagey feeling at the moment? What do you'se think of it? What do you add to your rooms to give it that touch?

Dolly Bow Bow Purchase!

hey guys, 

you have probably all heard of the lovely blogger and vlogger, Dolly Bow Bow aka Kate Murnane, but if you don't know who she is then check out her blog and youtube channel now! (well... after youve read my post hehe)

Kate has her own online shop which features homey items, clothing and jewellery- all of it gorgeous!

Well, when I was browsing her site, I found this little jar, and I fell in love. I didn't know it was possible to love a jar so much! I feel as if my style, both in fashion and decor is turning vintage-y. Anything like this jar or this kind of style my brain tells me to buy! Oh and I am very happy that 1940's below the knee full skirt dresses are coming back in fashion.

When I saw this jar, it reminded me of what people had on their dressing room tables on a sunny day with the sun shining in. Haha, don't ask me why I imagined it being sunny, it just was in my weird little brain of mine.

Firstly, it came in a box. Shocker I know! I haven't had a parcel come in a proper square cardboard box in all my life. This really made me happy.

I bet your all sitting in anticipation for what the jar looks like, so here it is!

In Love With Fashion

hey guys,

the other day, e-tail PR sent out an email to all bloggers, asking them of their favourite pieces from In Love With Fashion, a clothing store which has some lovely items in it!
I must admit, I had never heard of them before, but I am glad that I have found out about them now as I love love love it!

e-tail PR sent :

Here are my favourite items from the shop, just to give you a little insight of what they stock:

As I had sooo many favourites, these are just a few as they wouldn't fit on my collage! :(

I really love the simple tee's like the 'In Vogue We Trust', as it would go with so many items, has that fashion twist, and the words I just really love. I also love the blue flowery shorts, as I think that they will look great in spring, with a white cropped tee, hey, even the 'in vogue we trust' one! oo yeah, that would look really nice.
The waterfall dress made me happy. I saw it, I smiled, I imagined wearing it on a cool sunny summers day. Ahhhh.
As you can probably tell from my blog name, I love bows. Any type of bow, on any different item, and I will automatically love it. The dress with the black bows literally made me want to put my hand in my laptop screen and magically drag it out. oh. I wish.
Ahhh, sorry, one more thing and I'll shut up, I can visualise right now the mint lace skirt with the 'in vogue we trust' top. And I can tell you it looks good. That Vogue top is really becoming a staple item here! :)

You also might see a few items where they are the same, but just in different colours, this is because I couldn't decide which one I liked more! haha :)
