Nails Inc. London, Chester Feathers Nail Polish

Tuesday, July 30, 2013
 
My love (and my collection) for nail polish is growing and that's partly due to my best friend Kathy buying my gifts all the time! Kathy just got back from Manchester yesterday and she brought this little baby for me!
 
Until yesterday I didn't even know that this collection existed! Along with the Chester feathers, there's also Brighton, Cornwall, York and Edinburgh feathers! The Chester feathers is a mix of three colours, light blue, yellow and peach!

Firstly, I love the bottle! I've had a thing for birds every since I decided I was going to dedicate an entire textile's coursework to them! The idea of the specks being feathers is just great! I chose to apply the polish to bare nails just so I would be able to show off the colours and texture well! In the photo above I have two coats on. Although i'm sure that it would go perfectly on top of a pastel green or just a thin coat over a French manicure?! I think the possibilities are endless!
 
Overall, i'm really pleased with this nail polish and I know i'm going to be using it a lot over the next few months, definitely get a lot of experimenting done. I honestly don't think i'll ever be let down by a Nails Inc. polish!
 
Have you tried this nail polish? What do you think?

I actually adore this.

"I know today is Monday and you assume it's going to suck, but according to statistics, there will be over 5,000 weddings, 10,000 child births and 42 million hugs occurring today throughout the united states. Also today, there will be at least 4 people that will win the multimillion dollar lotteries, 600 people will get promotions at work and 3,000 people will lose their virginity. There will also be 600 dogs adopted, 35,000 balloons sold and 800,000 skittles sold. Plus, the words "I love you" will be said over 9 million times. So, again, I know today is Monday and you assume it's going to suck but just smile, because according to statistics, it should actually be a really nice day. "

Polyvore Style Board #11

Sunday, July 28, 2013
I'm finally feeling better and back to normal, yay!
 
Tee // Skirt // Shoes // Sunnies // Hat // Ring // Bracelets
 
 
The inspiration for this post is road trip/beachy (I need to invest in better adjectives) sort of theme. I'm going to start with the t-shirt, purely because over the last few weeks, I've been a little bit pineapple obsessed, not the actually fruit though, it's one of the few fruits I can't stand! Pineapple lamps, pineapple skirts(I tweeted a really epic one earlier on today!) and I just really liked this little pineapple tee! I honestly don't know what my fascination is, but I can't help it!
 
I decided to team it with this little beauty! A gorgeous piece from Ralph Lauren but it's currently got 40% off it's full price on sale! Just click the link above. I've blogged about a few different denim skirts in the last month, but I think this one is now my ultimate favourite. I think it's the embroidery on the hem that wins me over, I think it makes it look extra cute!
 
I opted for Toms for today's style board as i'd never included them in one of these posts before and infact, I've never owned a pair myself. I know the hype has sort of gone now but I do quite like the look of them now. This pair in particular would be great because they'd be able to go with pretty much anything!
 
Ironically, I didn't include these sunnies in yesterday's post but i'm lusting over this pair of cat eye sunnies from Marc Jacobs. Another perfect go to item for this season.
 
I don't think this outfit would have been complete without this little fedora! Being so fair skinned and sensitive to the sun, I should probably wear hats all through summer. I think a shopping trip is in order!
 
I'm really loving seeing girls wearing ten bracelets on each wrist. I remember when I was still in school around and just before our gcse's, bracelets were the bomb digady. I really love it as something to compliment your look/outfit. I really like this little set which is from pull&bear for about £10
 
Current Obsessions: Blueberries and looking into starting yoga!
 
Would you rock this outfit? Let me know!

Seven Purrrfect Cat Inspired Items!

Saturday, July 27, 2013
I am a true cat lover and lover of anything cat. I thought I'd go on a little hunt for some epic purrfect pieces! Meow!
cat pixel photo: cat 2pt1oqx.gif 1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7 cat pixel photo: cat 2pt1oqx.gif
 
First up, we've got two tee's which I think are equally as good as each other! I love the first one as I think it's really clever how they're put the ying yang in there with the kitty's face. The second is just purrfection! I'm sure you've all seen the Céline tee's floating around on the likes of Rihanna. I really do think it's a great take on the tee, infact, I think i'd rather own a Féline over a Céline!
 
This watch is definite must have! It's a real bargain, coming in at around £10. It's actually available in three colours, black, mint and white, but I adore this mint one! It's even got rhinestones on the little kitty ears, adorable right? You'd be a fool to walk past this item in store if you ask me.

I think cat ear headbands have really become quite popular but I think that's great! If Taylor Swift can sport them, why shouldn't we be able to walk around with kitty ears! I particularly like this pair because of the little gold studs on them, makes it that little bit edgier. This item is also available in a choice of colours, there's black, as above, teal, coral and cobalt blue.
 
Okay, yes, this is a peg bag/basket, I wasn't kidding when I said I wanted everything at home to have kitties on it! My current peg bag is a £1.50 jobby from Morrisons with polka dots so I think a new one may be in order! If you click the link above and go to the website, they've got quite a number of animal peg bags. I think they're so funky, I love them!
 
When in search for something cute, modcloth is the place to go! One of many great kitty rings off the internet. I could spend hours browsing through kitty inspired jewellery! I actually love how grumpy he looks!
 
There are a load of amazing cat inspired phone cases out there too, I actually own one similar to this one that I bought in accessorize a while back. In the words of my boyfriend "That is the most awesome thing I have ever seen," he's right! What's better than pictures of cats wearing/doing people things?
 
I could have made at least another five collages with all the purrrfect kitty inspired items on the internet! Which of these is your favourite? Or do you own a great kitty shirt or ring already? Let me know!

Polyvore Style Board #10

Sunday, July 21, 2013
I've not been felling too well this weekend, boo hoo!
cute sad pixel photo:  saddycat.gif
Top // Skirt // Bag // Sandals // Rings 1 2 3
 
 
I think just about everyone has had a Starbucks before. Unfortunately, there isn't one where I live so when I do get my hands on one they're a real treat! There's some really funky Starbucks merch out there, like the whole, starWARS may the FROTH be with you and what not. I'd love to get my hands on this little cropped tank top though and for just over £12, I might just have to!
 
I stumbled upon this skater skirt on the topshop website(where else) and I think it's absolutely adorable! I adore the elephant print and it's black and white so for £28 it's a staple wardrobe item and it'll go with pretty much anything! Deffo my favourite thing about this outfit!
 
I've been looking for a pair of proper "going out" sandals and I think I've found some! This particular pair are guess and they're beautiful! I'm sure I've seen them somewhere else online but I can't think where, oopsy! Last year I really fell in love with wearing sandals all year round (like seriously I showed up to work in February in the pouring rain) so maybe I could ask Santa for these for Christmas?
 
I really love this bag because it's another staple item because you can never go wrong with a tan pleather bag. It's a smallish size too which is great but not too tiny! It's currently available from mango via asos!
 
I'm really loving rings at the moment, gold ones in particular. I think the largest(#3) one is my favourite one! I love the vintage look it has and the fact that it's big and bulky! Whilst searching for some for this post, I came across this one which is beautiful but I don't think I'll ever be able to justify spending that amount of money on a ring for myself.
 
Current Obsessions: Fresh flowers and summer berries!
 
So what do you think? Would you rock this outfit?

Magical Mystery Tour!

Saturday, July 20, 2013
So I thought i'd try something a little different today which is actually something I used to do over at my buzznet. I've just been browsing the internet this morning/afternoon and I stumbled upon this set of photo's from a shoot for Lula Magazine by Ellen von Unwerth (Click the link to find our more about the photographer) and I've fallen in love! Not only is model Rasa Zukauskaite beautiful, but so are the outfits and the chosen scenery! The theme is "Magical Mystery Tour" and I think Unwerth has done a fantastic job! I'm not a fashion photographer or even anything close, but it's shoots like these that really make me wish I was! I really wanted to share these photo's with all of you so I hope you like them as much as I do!

Issue: #13 Fall 2011
