my recent purchases..shoes, maxi skirt, bag.

Standard

I haven’t written a new post in toooo long! Don’t know really what I’ve been doing! Back now though 🙂

So here are a few things I’ve bought recently:

These cute Carvela flats are good for the summer (if we ever get some sunny weather, that is!) I wore them to an interview the other day with the cream chiffon-sleeved top (Miss Selfridge) from a previous post of mine and my coral jeans with leopard print bag and  long gold birdcage necklace to accessorise. Haven’t heard about the job yet, but have my fingers crossed!

This is my new floral maxi skirt from ASOS, it was in the sale so not sure if it’s still available. Only worn it once due to poor weather! Hoping to have a holiday at some point where it can be put to more use! I wanted a similar one from River Island but they unfortunately didn’t have it in my size and it wasn’t available online, so this ASOS one was a good alternative.

Definitely don’t need any more bags but couldn’t resist this colour pop bag from Mango. Brings a little brightness and statement to a black outfit 🙂 Also in the sale for £24.99 so couldn’t say no.

I had my eye on this one from Ted Baker but felt I couldn’t justify the purchase so settled for the cheaper Mango one, not as lovely as Ted’s though! It comes in a really cute pink colour too. Might get one some day! They’re actually in the sale at the moment for £90. I’m such a fan of Ted Baker accessories, they had a cabinet full of lovely purses and bags in a John Lewis store I went in, I had to be dragged away!

In-keeping with this red theme, here are my fun union jack nails. Bit time-consuming but quite like the result. Started off with white varnish at the bottom then waited for it to dry and carefully painted on the red stripes then used a cocktail stick dipped into the blue nail varnish to finish them off. (And then added a clear topcoat to seal).

How I spent my Sunday…

Standard

I’ve decided to write a post each Sunday to talk about what I got up to 🙂

So here are the main things I did today:

1) painted and decorated my nails with nail varnish and nail art pen from Topshop, and realised I don’t have the steadiest hand and am not the most patient person when it comes to waiting for nail varnish to dry!

Here’s the result ( I went for simple spots with a stripe feature on the thumb nail):

2) Enjoyed the sun in the garden and walked one of the kittens on a lead!

3) Groomed the big cat, who now has a very shiny coat

4) Got my finger massacred by the kitten (after I’d done my nails) Thought I’d spare the gore and add a black and white picture! Unfortunately because of this close up you can also see how inaccurate my spots were!…

5) Watched The Voice UK. There are some great singers, especially Ruth and Jaz.

6) Wrote this

I hope my next few Sundays are a bit more interesting.

Wait for the next instalment!

Colourful Nails!

Today I purchased two lovely Max Factor Max Effect Mini Nail Polishes- Mellow Yellow and Cool Jade. I thought they were great colours for the summer and for a quirky and fun look I decided to use both of them.

I used 2 coats which gave good coverage, I then followed this with No7 ‘Stay Perfect’ clear nail varnish as a topcoat.

Also it’s 3 for 2 across loads of make up products in Boots at the moment- my third item was Rimmel Scandaleyes Mascara. I’ll do a post on it when I’ve tried it out.
