Inspired by seeing Gaga tomorrow, I thought I'd do Gaga inspired nails!
After googling, lots of pics of her with super, shiney patterned nails came up. I assume they're minx and I don't have time to get that done so I've come up with my own version

What do you think?

I have been hunting for the perfect mint green. Most offerings have been far too blue for my liking but I've finally found a greener version

Collection 2000 mint mojo has no blue and is the soft pale green I've been after. Unfortunately application was vile! 3 coats later I gave up and used Gosh Rainbow over the top to hide the thick, streaky finish

I'm still not keen. I think my search continues.

However, Gosh Rainbow does look stunning over Barry M Pink Flamingo. Very much in love with my pedi

Sorry to post a pic of my toes but it's too summery and nice not to. I'm considering putting this on my fingers too!

L/s of the moment

I have fallen in love with Rimmel Colour Show off lipsticks.
I got 2 the other day and my colour of the moment is Pink Gossip.

It looks really coral in this pic but it's actually a very wearable bright pink. It's my favourite new day time colour. Not bright enough to be banished to night time but far more fun than a baby pink.

I wore it out to Thorpe Park

It has a cheap lipstick smell but it's nostalgic rather than unpleasant. It's very moisturising but does dry to a semi matte long lasting finish. I can't sing it's praises enough and it was less than £5!

Hi girlies
I'm sorry for the lack of posts, I have a tonne I want to do but I've currently lost my camera charger and posts just aren't the same using my iPhone.

I have today though, my notd is Barry M Turquoise. This seems to be a popular notd at the moment but I'd forgotten quite how summery the colour is

I would describe this as a sky blue, it needs more green to be a true turquoise but still gorgeous and check out how long my nails have gotten! Thanks Sally Hansen!

Interior Design

Hi lovelies

Our flat buying seems to be going rather well now so I’ve allowed myself to start thinking about decor. I like quite simple decor and I’ve decided to go for a mainly black and white theme (like my current bedroom) throughout the place.

Ever since seeing this table in Ikea, I’ve planned a black, white and yellow living room.


Since then we’ve got some yellow pics as they’ll be the main focus, along with this table.


Our pic is slightly different but my mum got it for us to remind us of NYC.


This is the original FAC1 poster. G got an original print from Ebay last year. For those who don’t know, Factory Records was at the very heart of the Madchester scene, responsible for Joy Division & Happy Mondays. This is the poster of the very first gig Tony Wilson put on.

I plan on having the room painted white, wooden floors with black furniture.

If you still can’t picture it, here’s some inspiration





Slight change from my usual ramble but expect to see a lot more design inspiration posts! I promise to do a before and after on my actual flat too.

OOTD Pretty Pastels

I wore this outfit to work recently after finding this beautiful coloured top for £4 in Primark


Whole outfit- Primark!

I also wore these Primark shoes.

So a few weeks ago I wrote this post about clogs, and since then I’ve been obsessing over them. The gorgeous Topshop ones were sold out by the time I decided to get them and I had to look for an alternative. I finally found them at New look and ordered them straight away.




What can I say? I’m in love. They’re so comfy and really not difficult to walk in. I’ve spent the last few days strutting round my office in them and they’ve gone down a storm.

Anyone changed their opinion on them yet and bought a pair?

As you may know, I had to go to the bank to apply for a mortgage on Saturday(which went terribly but that’s something I’m trying not to think about) and I decided I’d dress a little smarter to make a better impression.

I don’t do smart. Even at my job I can wear what I like so I rarely have the need to. As I don’t do smart trousers and was working with a limited wardrobe I thought I’d show you my outfit of the day


Top- Dorothy Perkins
Skirt- American Apparel
Belt- Peacocks
Pumps-Dorothy Perkins

I always turn to this skirt for a smarter look. It’s super flattering.

I also did a very neutral face to compliment my bright outfit


Revlon photoready foundation
Maybelline mineral concealer
Milani Luminous blush

Mac Prep+Prime eye
MAC All That glitters
MAC Woodwinked
MAC Vanilla
Maybelline Colossal mascara

US wish list

My gorgeous and lovely pal Lisa is off to Florida without me in a few weeks and to ease my pain she’s offered to get me some make up whilst she’s out there.

My current shopping list is

Originial Covergirl Lashblast mascara


Covergirl Lash Blast fusion


both in Very Black

Sephora daily brush cleaner

Got the smaller one in NY and it’s running out. Need the bigger version in my life!

Sephora pro brush #49

I need a massive face brush to apply my bronzer, Yinka, using her Sephora wisdom, recommended me this one.

Sephora by OPI, Leaf him at the altar
Such an unsusual green.

Sephora by OPI Top Coat, Gold for me
Gold flakie top coat. FAB

I’m also considering Teal meet again


That’s it so far. Lipsticks & blushes are a little hard from online swatches.

If she could find me OPI Jade is the new black too, my life would be awesome

So ladies, any other US recommendations for me? Any must haves? Let me know.

Blush Love

As soon as my hair went dark again, I cracked out Dollymix blush by MAC. It was far too bright to wear with my red hair so it sat untouched in my drawer for 6 months.


It’s definitely not for the faint hearted!


The slight shimmer takes it from clown to Eighties fab. My favourite way to wear it is up on my cheeks and into my brow bone


Have any of you tried Dollymix?
