Hey everyone, just a quick post, need to vent a little bit! Not in a bad way, just to get things off my chest I think!

I'm currently in the process of applying to UNI, and i'd say i'm over half way as i've got all my offers and my student finance sorted! Now i've just got to apply to my accommodation which opens tomorrow! I have no idea what time so i'm quite worried as I want to make sure I get to apply with enough time to get me the room I want!

I've been sorting out my final project at college as well which i'm really looking forward to starting properly, just need to tie up a few lose ends and i'm good to go with permission granted!

I think i'm doing okay with the stress, it's being kept down to a minimum which I think I have my mum to thank for that one! 

So i've got to apologise that  my blog's being rather neglected at the minute, but please bare with me! Only my future in stake here ;) I'm just kidding, i'll be up with lots of posts soon!

I'm thinking of doing more variety? What would people want to see? :)

sorry it's a bit of a blabber post!

NOTD croc!

Hey everyone, hope you're all okay!

Just a quick post today, about a nail varnish i've been loving at the minute!
I love Barry M and have lots of their nail varnish's but today i'm talking about their effects range.
I currently have the crackle effect in black and pink and i've been dying to get my hands on the croc one but it's been out of stock in my boots and superdrug for ages!
So when I was in town the other week I decided to go have a snoop whilst I was waiting for my mum and I was happy to see ONE left!

I'm so happy I bought it!

The croc effects is quite different to the other effects range, you have to apply it to only touch dry nails not completely dry nails, I think this might be to do with a reaction in the varnish? I'm not sure!

But you have to wait 2-3 minutes for it to work, but when it does it looks AMAZING!

I used it over a silver nail varnish and it creates such a nice effect through the black.

Here's my nails with the effect on -

The nail varnish costs £3.99 which I don't think is too bad considering each nail is different and the effect will always be unique!

Has anyone else tried this effect? What's your favourite Barry M nail varnish colour?

NOTD pretty pastels

Hey everyone, hope you're all okay!

I'm having such a lazy day today, the weather is still crap so a duvet day is on the cards I think!

Just a quick one today, a notd :)

I went for pastel colours today because i'm so happy they're in this summer/spring!
I went for a gorgeous baby blue by OPI called "Whats with the cattitude" from their Shrek collection
and for the print I used Barry M's Berry 308 and for the black I used my Models own WAH pen

Let me know what you guys think! Sorry for the quality of the photograph, it was taken on my phone without flash. xo

It's terrifying how quick someone can be taken away.

You'll never be forgotten Sarah, such a bubbly lovely girl.
Showing me all the ropes at work and telling me I'll be able to do it!
Such a loving person to work with and be with, never negative with that bubbly and contagious smile on your face!
You've reminded me that things can change instantly and you have no choice in the matter.
It's going to be hard at work tonight, but I will raise a glass for you babe.

R.I.P Beautiful xx
