Barry M Silk Nail Polish

Good afternoon my lovelies! It's been so rainy and sad here in the last couple of days, and there's not been much going on. But it has given me a chance to settle back in at home which has been lovely.

Today I got a chance to do my nails and I decided to use a Barry M polish that I bought from Boots not long ago. I love Barry M polishes and I've been really impressed by the new lines they've been coming out with recently. This polish is from the silk line, and is in the colour Heather. It's a beautiful dusty lilac colour and it has a really unique finish to it. The silk polishes don't dry shiny, they're almost matte, but not quite. It also has a tiny subtle shimmer to it too.





I'm utterly in love with this colour, and I think it will be one of my go-to shades for the summer! 

Also whilst I've been home, my brother has also filled me in on the latest craze of making bracelets out of rubber bands, so I'm now well and truly down with the kids and I'll soon be wearing them all up my arm! Has anyone else encountered this new playground trend?!

Mr. Nutcase Personalised Phone Case* Review




Hello lovelies, sorry once again for my absence, things have been a bit busy what with it being the end of the university year.

Today I have a little review for you, something a bit different to usual! I was recently given the opportunity to make a personalised phone case with Mr. Nutcase and I thought it sounded like a fun idea!

The idea is that you can upload your own pictures to be printed onto a phone case, and you can create something really personal for yourself or as a gift. The first step is to head to their website and chose the make and model of your phone, then the type of case you'd like; I went for the Executive Flip Leather Style case. Then you get to chose the layout of the photos, you can chose to have lots of photos or even just the one, it's up to you.

Then comes the hardest part, choosing which photos to put on it! I chose some photos of my family and one of myself and my boyfriend, so that I get to carry around some really special photos.



Once you've chosen the photos and put them where you want them, that's it! I made mine online on Monday afternoon and it arrived today (Thursday), so it's super quick! 


I'm really happy with the quality of the case itself and how the photos have come out on the case. The photos are only printed on the back but I quite like that. The case is a little stiff at the moment but I'm sure it will loosen up with use. 


The online interface was easy to use, and the case arrived very quickly. This particular case would cost £19.95 which isn't too bad considering the quality of the service, and I'd definitely consider making one as a gift. 

I'd like to thank Mr. Nutcase for giving me the opportunity to review their product and I'd love to hear your opinions on my snazzy new case!

April Birchbox Giveaway! (UK Only) (Ended)

Hello my lovelies, I hope you've all had a great week!

I'm going to make this post short and snappy. Here's the thing!

I recently signed up to Birchbox to see what all of the fuss was about. I decided I'd just get the one as I can't really afford a rolling subscription right now. I was super happy when my April box was waiting for me one day when I got home! To my surprise though, today, I received another April box! There must have been some kind of mix up because I used a free box code. Anyway, instead of keeping my extra box, I've decided to give it away!



In the box, you'll find:

The Balm Cosmetics Cheek and Lip Cream 

Lord and Berry Couture Kohl Kajal Mini Eye Pencil

Color Club Gala's Gems Nail Polish

Yes To Cucumbers Facial Wipes

Propercorn Sweet Coconut and Vanilla
