I’m back!

Hey fellow bloggers, I know I’ve been MIA for the past few days, but every time I went to write my blog the Internet went down… So hopefully I can finish this post in time!!
So today, I had a day off college, as I worked extra hard to get three days work into two, yes!
It was so nice not having to wake up to my terrifying alarm, which scares the life put of me every, single morning… But sadly when I did wake up the sun was not shining…. Sad times…

And, because I did have a day off, I had time to paint my nails! As, I was painting I thought, “I’m going to show your my nail varnish collection”. Or some of it at least, as my sister has stolen/borrowed at least half of my collection…

20130612-235144.jpg this is my lovely box, I got it while on holiday a few years ago, in a little antique exhibition, I think it’s so vintage… HAD to buy it. And to please my OCD side of me, it fits all my nail varnish perfectly! That is heaven my friend.

I think it’s quite a varied collection… I have promised myself not to but anymore, as it won’t fit in my pretty box, and it will drive me insane…

Now, to end this blog… It is of course time for Shuffle Song Of the Day.
It is by Bright Eyes, on the album ‘I’m wide awake its morning’ and the song
‘the first day of my life’…. Man, this song is wonderful…. Take a listen! it will change your life!

Well, that’s all folks, it’s been lovely, we should do it again sometime!

Fab Fossil!

Yellow, my friends, it’s a pleasure to see you all again. So today, I had yet another day off college, and I’m loving every minute! Instead of being stuck in a stuffy classroom all day, I get to go outside! Woop!

Today’s best bit was getting a new handbag, because I really needed a new one….
This one is from Fossil… And it’s a work of art… to crazy old me!

Isn’t she lovely, as Stevie Wonder once said. The strap is a perfect length, the bag is a lovely size also. I have found that I carry far too much in all of my other handbags, and it’s really not good for my back or shoulders, so I thought it was about time to get a smaller one. Even the lining in the bag is pretty!

My friend bought this back for me from America, as it is so much cheaper over there. But I have found a very similar bag you can buy in the Uk, here!

The shoe of the day, also comes from America. I have always had a love for flip flops, since I was a little girl, my friend in America loved them, and I have adored them ever since! They are from Tommy Hilfiger, and quite stunning!

They couldn’t have come at a more perfect time, with all this beautiful sunshine! I shall wear them all the time!

And finally, it’s time for the shuffle song of the day. It’s by KISS and its called Detroit Rock City!
It’s a great song, and I have found it is great for walking or running, as it makes you go faster and feel awesome! Listen to it here!

Well, there’s nothing left to say,
Apart form goodbye…..

A Bit of Everything…

Aloha, my blogging friends, it’s lovely to see you again! So today the sun actually came out, I kid you not. As it was my sisters birthday, (Happy Birthday Allie!) we decided to go out for an all you can eat breakfast. And my oh my it was delicious and I was well and truly stuffed! We came back and I decided to try my new models own nail varnish.

I adore this colour, as I normally stick to dark and more grey tones its lovely to have a change! I only needed to put on one coat as the consistency is thick. The brush is quite long and thin, so be careful about the amount of varnish you put on each time as it tends to drip… Trust me it drips…
But apart from that its a wonderful varnish, in a lush colour and I’m very happy with it!
Here are the finished nails! You’ll have to excuse my short nails, they just don’t seem to grow!

Ooh, while I’m talking about nails, I wanted to show you a present I got from my parents yesterday!

20130530-202545.jpg
It’s from the ‘Scarlet and Crimson’ collection and the packaging is soo pretty, I just love it! It comes in a little compact and inside is a bronzer, blusher, 2 lip glosses, some blotting paper, and a teeny little mirror! I haven’t had a chance to use it properly yet but I’m already loving it! Thank you ma and pa, mucho appreciation! Oh, I forgot, here is what it looks like from the inside!

So, onto the shoe of the day! Today I sported a polka dot pair of vans, which are loved very much.

I apologise as I cannot link these as I bought them in the sale years ago for £10!! Love me a good bargain. So, back to my day, I bet your all dying to know what I did next!!
We, as we do everyday, took Tonka for a walk. We found a cool place with lots of sand dunes, the dog loved it! I have to confess that I’m not a lover of sand, I’m not sure why? Love me some sea though, I’m a total water baby at heart!

20130530-214212.jpg. For those wanting to know, I got my sunglasses from Primark, fairly recently for £2!
Now I know that two rounds don’t make a right (my face and sunglasses) but I adore them, I feel so vintage in them, and I can’t bare to be apart from them!
And finally, the time you’ve all been waiting for… it feels like I’ve run a blogging marathon here…. The shuffle song of the day!!
‘Me and my shadow’ by Robbie Williams on his epic album ‘Swing when your winning’. Flipping love this album, it’s an oldie but a goodie!
And I think that’s all from me! It’s been delightful. Speak soon.
