Monday Portrait Week #1

Top - Asos | Cardigan -  American Apparel | Faux Fur Collar - H&M (sale) | Earrings - Odie & Fleur

001.  So, this is my very first Monday Portrait, Iv seen so many Sunday Portraits floating around blog world I thought i'd mix things up abit and start a Monday Portrait as its the beginning of a brand new week! So far, this week hasn't been very promising 'weather-wise' my UK viewers would be aware as you simply cannot miss the rain pouring down outside, along with random crashes of thunder. 

002. I'd also like to apologize for not being on top blogging form recently, as it was my birthday last week iv been meeting up with old friends from my old school, college work at the moment has been totally crazy, &of course, the old winter colds/flu has been attacking me recently resulting in me not being too well, and sleeping for most of the day :( 
003. As iv been feeling slightly 'down in the dumps' iv been drinking loads of tea, and recently I'v become in love with Twinings Assam Tea :) &, of course, when your ill you crave nothing but a bath, so iv been using up my Soap & Glory products.. which I never realized how amazing they are.. -I think its the 'Soap&Glory smell' that gets me! :) & I'v been raiding the internet shops recently so im eagerly waiting for my package from Coal&Terry Vintage to come through the post, which I am SO excited about! 

Have a wonderful week!

Flower Nails

Flower Nails

Hey guys, 
As you can tell..Heres another nail art tutorial for y'all to give a go!
These nails are very girly & I really enjoyed doing them, as you can also see, once broken down they're pretty simple to do!
all you need is:
-a selection of nail polishes you want to use (3colours)
-tiny brushes
& a black nail art pen!

Step1. I painted the base of my nails pink so its not too overpowering &it acts like a subtle background. I then dipped a cotton bud into a pinky/orange colour, the one I used was OPI Bright lights-Big colour.

Step2. Using my black nail art pen (these are available at most drug stores, &iv also seen them in topshop, uban outfitters and accessorize too) I then created black lines representing branches and also outlined the flower to give it shape.

Step3. After this, still using my nail art pen, I then added small dots around the ends of the 'branches' and inside the flower, for detail. 

Step4. Finally I took a small nail art paint brush and added my green leaves. To do this, I dipped my paint brush in to green paint and just randomly added green dots to the 'branches'. Then use your favorite top coat to make the look last longer! :) 

I hope you all enjoyed this quick tutorial & let me know what you think! 



*Philosophy product review

White Cherry 3in1
 Bubble Bath, Shower Gel and Shampoo 

This was gifted to me at Christmas, and as you can tell by the amount iv already used -I'v completely fallen inlove with this product! I was worried that the smell of cherry would be, as usual, far too overpowering but i was extremely pleased to find out its got a very subtle,fresh smell to it. The first thing which drew me towards the product was the packaging. Its simple, yet classy and sits beautiful on any bathroom shelf. Once opened, I noticed the gorgeous pearlescent colour with shimmers of pink, white and silver. 
This product does contain glitter, which I don't mind much at all as it doesn't stick too much so you don't come out the bath, or shower looking like a glitter ball!
This product also has an amazing lather, feels really soft and cleans so well,whether your using it as a shampoo, bubble bath or shower gel..it ticks every box!  
 I love this product so much and defiantly want to check out more products by Philosophy going by this product!
As far as I'm aware this product is no longer on the philosophy website, but it may be on other websites which sell this brand. I defiantly recommend you to give this brand a go.

Leopard Print Manicure

Leopard print french manicure 

Hey guys! 
so i thought i'd do a blog post about my leopard print nails as i cannot explain to you how simple it is! 

So, this is it.. 3 steps to a gorgeous french mini, with a bit of a twist!

step 1. use a base coat, recently iv been loving Essie base coat, then use a white nail vanish to create a french manicure. you can use the tip stencils or, if you have a steady hand, do it free hand! 

step 2. you then take a gold nail varnish, which ever one you can get your hands on, i love the Max Factor nail varnishes especially for this look as the brush and the bottles are so small you can paint the randomly placed dots straight on to the nail. if the brush is too big for this, just use a cotton bud.

Step 3. last but not least, use a black nail art pen and add broken circles and randomly placed flecks of black then, to complete and make the look budge-proof add your favorite top coat!

let me know what you guys think!
