Manicure Monday | Models Own - Speckled Egg in Duck

After a brief love affair with Lychee last week, I am back to the more bold side of my collection. This week I've been loving another of the Speckled Egg collection from Models Own.

Where Have I Been?


I feel incredibly lucky to have increased my readership so much over the last few weeks, I really appreciate that you take time out of your lives to read my little blog. But for those of you that are new readers you may be wondering if I ever post.

Meet My Dog

3 years ago I received a picture message of the most gorgeous looking dog I think I have ever seen. She is a Lhasa Apso who was looking for a new home. At only 3 months old she had already had 3 homes, I was never given a reason for this, but it's thought that because she has an extra toe she "isn't fit for breeding". This appalled me! I collected her a couple of hours after seeing the photo and she has been with me ever since.

Manicure Monday | Barry M Gelly - Lychee

After all of the bright colours I've been wearing these past couple of months I was feeling in the mood for something a bit more neutral, so I went digging through my stash and found Barry M Gelly in Lychee.

Manicure Monday | Barry M for Superdrug's 50th Birthday

Last week was a strange one for nail polish, I must have done them at least six times in two days. Partly because I wasn't well at the start of the week so couldn't do much besides paint my nails, and partly because it seemed that I couldn't manage to do all ten fingers without messing them up in some way, do you ever have days like that?

New Blog Design

Yay, I'm so excited!

Ever since I started this blog back in April I've wanted to change the way it looks, I've mentioned it a few times. As much as the way I originally had it was ok for the time being, it wasn't clean enough for my liking, I wanted something fresher and easier on the eye.

The British Tag

Scrolling through my You Tube subscriptions the other day, I came across this video by Helen Melonlady, The British Tag. I loved the questions asked so thought it might be fun to do it, especially as I am from Britain myself.

Quick and Easy Vegan Welsh Cakes | Recipe

Being from Wales I've obviously had my, and possibly others, fair share of Welsh cakes in the past. I used to adore them, but since turning vegan I haven't had any. So, with a craving and a free day I decided it was time that I tried my hand at making my own. Here is how I made 18 of the little beauties:

Manicure Monday | Models Own - Speckled Egg in Dove

Ever since I was a child I've been in love with nail polish, sometimes painting my nails every day. I know it's excessive but it's something I really enjoy doing and it also calms me down if I'm feeling particularly stressed. So I've decided that every Monday I will write a short post on my favourite mani of the week, either one that I've been wearing for a couple of days prior or one that I will be wearing from Monday onwards. It won't be a full review, just a few lines and a couple of photos to show you what the nail polish looks like on.

ELF Haul | Photo Heavy

Although I've picked up some things from ELF over the last few months (see my previous haul here), I have been waiting for a big sale to get the things I have really been looking forward to trying. Thankfully, a couple of weeks ago I received an email saying that they were having a weekend sale with 50% off everything site wide, so I took the opportunity and picked up quite a few things.

Monthly Favourites | June 2014

This month has been quite expensive for me, I've bought so much that I'm planning on doing a 'no buy July' in order to save a bit of money. A lot of the things I have been loving this month have been outside of make-up and beauty, but I was still loving a few new products in June.

The End of Animal Testing in China?

Being a cruelty free shopper has always been a bit of a burden, having to Google products and ingredients is very time consuming, but all that could soon be a lot easier thanks to China changing its law on animal testing.
