NAILS

I’ve been wanting a manicure for ages, well just something different on my nails but I just don’t have the money to spend for a treatment at the salon. Instead I decided to them myself. I didn’t want just my usual red/blue/coral nails. I wanted them to stand out.

This is the first time i’d done patterns on my nails myself before so I know they’re not perfect but it was so easy and fun to do. I chose the two polishes I wanted to use- white and black. I got a wooden cuticle stick with a point on end (found them in a load of manicure sets from old Christmas’s/birthdays) to draw the patterns with.

I didn’t have any patterns in mind, just went for a random mish mash that were easy to draw on my nails from stripes to dots to flowers. Firstly you paint each nail the colour you fancy. Then you dab the cuticle stick into the preferred colour of paint for the pattern. And finally you get drawing!

I used a clear varnish for base coat and top coat to make it last.

So easy and a lot of fun. I recommend 🙂

Vintage doesn’t have to be pricey

Oh how I love a good eBay bargain… except when other bidders are as competitive as I am!

I purchased these vintage re-worked Levi high-waisted shorts for a brilliant £19. I though they were absolutely lush and perfect for Bestival in a few weeks. I also bought some studs for 99p to add my own style to top these shorts off. I am planning on adding studs on to the front left pocket. So excited for these items to arrive so I can get creative!

Just registered for Big Brother 2013

So I know I obviously have zero chance of getting in to the Big Brother house next year as I will have only just turned 18 but I thought I may as well register. I promised myself I would apply as soon as I turn 18 every single year until I get on to the show, so it had to be done. It is one of my dreams to go into the house one summer purely because it would be absolutely hilarious. People say they have a game plan but I wouldn’t even know where to start. I just want to meet new people from areas other than southampton- boring, boring, boring. Oh my god it would just be so much fun!

One day you WILL see me on your TV screens, entering the BB house 😉

unless I change my mind of course.

Festival Fashion Fever

So, ever since I received my Bestival ticket this morning I have been creating outfits in my head for the upcoming weekend. I couldn’t resist popping into town today (even though I have zero money) to have a look at all the amazing festival clothes! I was a bit cheeky and bought myself two necklaces for Bestival, one was £2 and the other only £1 so it had to be done! Absolute BARGAIN! I’ve already made a shopping list of items to buy for the weekend including: flowery headbands, Hunter wellies, new long socks, a new pair of high-waisted hot pants and printed rock and roll tops. Festivals are about the music of course… but the festival style is my favorite so I have to make the effort. I am definitely aiming to go for the celebrity festival look. CANNOT WAIT!

Hello world of blogging…

This is my first ever blog and I have not exactly thought this through.

I’m not too sure what is appropriate to write for my introductory post, but I am hoping I can use this to express anything an everything that’s on my mind. Feeling rather out of my depth here… but I do love writing so blogging seems perfect for me.
