NOTD | Nude

Hello all!

I thought I'd try something different with my nail colour so I decided to go for a pinky nude. There isn't a specific colour on the bottle and I'm not too sure on the brand, my sister got it when she was on holiday in the Dominican Republic for 30p!

I love this colour because it's really subtle and most times when I look at my nails it looks like I'm not wearing anything.

It has most definitely been added to my collection of favourite nail colours! xo

5 Day Challenge - Two

FIVE randon facts about yourself
FOUR of your favourite songs
THREE of your favourite films
describe TWO of your favourite memories
ONE wish/thing you would change about your life

I must admit I have been slacking with this but I do want to finish it so here's number 2 :)

My most favourite memory of my life so far has to be going to Radio 1's Hackney Weekend and seeing so many amazing artists live, especially Rihanna. Prior to this I had only seen Jessie J live then I went and saw more than 10 artists in one day. When I was there it felt like such a surreal experience and when I think back, look over my pictures or watch the performances I still can't believe that I was there!
One thing I loved about this was how everyone came together; there were so many people there. I saw some familiar faces and a lot I didn't know. I've lived in Hackney my whole life and I just loved being a part of this.

And my second most favourite memory is going to Paris with my sister in 2009. We only stayed for the night but I wish we could have stayed for longer because it was so lovely and the weather was gorgeous! I have only been to Nigeria, Spain and France but I already know that I love travelling and would love to do a lot more. I love the idea of exploring a new environment and meeting new people, even if we don't speak the same language :P

New In: Pointed Court Heels

Hi! :)

So recently I've been looking for heels that show 'foot cleavage,' basically they show more of the side of your foot than normal shoes. I went on a quest to find a pair and I actually found two! The first ones were from Dorothy Perkins but they were way to tight and I had to send them back. Then I went on the ASOS website and saw these beauties. Long story short, I'm in love. I haven't worn them out yet and I already know they going to be a killer to break into but I'm so happy I found them.

I've also noticed that most of my New In posts are shoes... Bet you can't guess what I'm obsessed with! :P

NOTD | Coral

Hello my dear followers/readers!

*Image taken from Tumblr

(I know it's four days late, but...) Welcome to October :) Only 2 months until Christmas! I can't believe have fast the year has gone, it's crazy!

Anyhoo, I got my nails done yesterday with a colour I recently purchased, Coral by Barry M. I instantly fell in love with this colour when I saw it on a friend about a year ago. I have no idea why it took me so long to buy it, but I finally did! This is one of those colours I think will look nice on all skin tones, and it can add a pop of colour to a dark outfit.

As I'm sure you can tell I'm a big fan of bright nail colours and an even bigger fan of Barry M. Between me and my sisters, we have a lot of Barry M nail paints. I might even do a post and show you all the colours we have...
