Saturdays Offerings

Chunky Hologram Sandals - Primark
Gem Necklace - Topshop
Floral Kimono - New Look

First let me start this post with some advice. Don't EVER go to Lakeside on a Saturday - I may have scored myself some beautiful bits, but the hell that I incurred was just ridiculous. So yeah anyway, a few weeks ago I was at a loose end on a Saturday so I went for a little afternoon shop. I'd wanted some chunky sandals like these and I saw the Holographic ones on Instagram so I had my mind set on finding them! I went into Primark, they had one pair left in the entire shop and they were my size which was amazing! They had a few grubby marks on the heel and when I asked if they had anymore the manager said they didn't but she would take a couple of pounds off - so they only cost me £12. And the heels cleaned up with a baby wipe - wooo! The necklace and kimono were really just unnecessary impulse buys, but kimomos are so easy to just throw on and look pretty nice and I wore the necklace with a simple black smart tee for my boys mums birthday meal and got lots of compliments,and it only cost me £5.50. I recently saw a preview of Primarks AW14 collection and I've got to say I'm impressed, There are definitey a few things I'm gunna try and get my hands on! I think a lot of it will be in the shops from August onwards. Im already looking forward to purchasing some A/W bits.

Hot Right Now

L-R; Peach Sherbert, Bright Pink, Blooboo, Banana Split & Northern Lights.

Sunshine and summertime vibes means pretty nail polish shades are a must. Here are my favourite 5 Hot Right Now nail polishes. Meaning essentially my top 5, most worn nail polishes of the moment.

Models Own - Peach Sherbert
A pastel peach/coral shade, perfect for Spring & Summer. I really like this because its a nice alternative to the classic pink, blue and yellow pastel nail polishes. I've been buying this shade for maybe 3 or 4 years now and its a classic and favourite in my collection.

Barry M - Bright Pink
This is the only non- Models Own shade from my favourites of the moment. This has actually always been a favourite of mine. I have purchased this repeatedly over the years. As the name states its a bright pink, very wearable all year round really and applys nicely. This is a great colour and polish for ombre and tie-dye nails.

Models Own - Blooboo
This shade I tried desperately to get my hands on for ages, I even had my friends 
& family checking all Boots stores and Bottle Shops for me too. In the end I got it online during the Models Own 50% sale earlier this year. I think maybe its a web exclusive? You cant tell from the pictures but its not just a pale blue. It has tiny tiny glittery metallic flecks running through it, which shimmer in certain light! Very Mermaidy - I love this one!

Models Own - Banana Split 
I think during the summer months a good yellow nail polish is a must, for all over colour or just for nail art details. I tend to stray away from bright yellows after a staining incident a few years ago which really put me off, but luckily this one doesn't have that problem. I love this colour and I've repurchased it a few times now.

Models Own - Nothern Lights
I remember when the Wonderland collection came out , I was in Boots trying to decide which 3 I was going to buy. This was one of the 3 and ever since its had a firm place in my favourites. Its not like a regular glitter nail polish because its so concentrated. Its got a holographic feels to it , which I think is probably why its soo nice!

Have you tried any of these nail polishes? Which are your favourite brands and shades of nail polishes at the moment?

July Be Mine..?

Gogo Philip Heavy Linked Curb Chain - £40 
Moschino Leather Bag - £789
Topshop RABBITT Faux Fur heels - £58
Gogo Philip Big Leaf Earrings - £20

Julys wishlist is a small one, but a bit pricey!! This Moschino bag is absolutely beautiful!!! I'd LOVE one...maybe something to save for, for a big treat haha!! The Topshop Faux Fur shoes are sooo cute, They're £58 But I think theres definitely some inspo for myself to come up with a cheaper alternative, as this shape shoe is everywhere right now! Maybe a little DIY project I think!? The Chain is the necklace version of the bracelet I got for my Birthday last year and is along with the earrings, one of many in a big long list of things I want from Gogo. Is there anything similar on your July Wishlist!?
