Ted Baker Coral Make Up Bag

I found this Ted Baker Make Up Bag in the John Lewis sale and it's just beautiful.  It totally brightens up the now dark mornings. I already have a small black Ted Baker Make Up Bag which I got in the sales at the beginning of the year and I am obsessed with it. I carry it I my handbag everyday.

This gorgeous coral studded bow detail make up bag is what I keep my bigger make up products in. My face cream, face serum, face powder, foundation and one of my make up setting sprays all fit in this gorgeous bag. I like keeping them all together in one place so this bag is just perfect for that.

One thing I love about Ted Baker Make Up Bags is that they can hold a lot more than they look like they can. They also open really widely so it is easy to find your beauty products.

I highly recommend grabbing one of these in the sale if you can. I did and I've never looked back since.

What do you think of this make up bag? Have you had your eye on one of these recently? I would love to hear what you think!

Models Own's Sun Hat Polish

Models Own's Sun Hat Polish is a gorgeous neon pastel pink colour which I absolutely love. You rarely find bright pastel colours. This is such a gorgeous polish to wear and it is really hard wearing too.

This polish applied effortlessly to my nails and dried fairly quickly. The brush was great and my polish was streak free within two coats.

I love how bright this polish is. I feel like I'm a little bit in awe of it actually. It's just so pretty to look at. I definitely recommend it if you can get your hands on it.

Do you have this polish? What do you think of it? Do you love how bright it is?

Nails Inc's Alexa Chung Camo Polish

How cool is this Camo polish by Alexa Chung for Nails Inc? I really loved wearing this polish. It consists of green, nude & gold glitter particles. Some are sparkly and some are matte.

What is great about this polish is that it is a glitter polish so you don't get a dull camouflage effect. It makes it really unique. I haven't come across any other polishes like it before.

I wore this polish over a black base which I think looked great. It was fairly easy to apply but I did place my glitter strategically. I used two coats of this Camo polish to achieve this effect. This Polish lasted really well-it took me a long time to remove it but thats to be expected since it's a glitter polish.

Overall, I think this is an awesomely unique polish which I would definitely recommend.

What do you think about this polish? Have you tried it? Do you like the effect that it gives?

NOTD: Powder Blue & Glitter Nails

You know how you sometimes have a bad hair day or a bad make up day or in my case a bad eye brow day? Well, I was having a bad nail polish day here. Please excuse how scruffy this polish looks on the photo.

I am wearing Topshop's Sweet Nothings Polish which is a lovely powder blue colour even though the photo makes it look brighter. The silver glitter polish is my trusty Set In Stones Essie polish which I adore.

Have you guys tried either of these polishes? What do you think of the combination?

Topshop Mint Statement Necklace

I absolutely adore this Mint Necklace from Topshop. I cannot stop wearing it. I find myself wishing it would just go with everything. Firstly, the colour of the necklace is amazing and it sits beautifully which makes me love it even more. 

This necklace is so interesting as it combines a metal chain with jewels of different shapes and sizes. It's just down right awesome!

What do you think? Do you like this necklace?


I am loving this gorgeous blue lace dress from Boohoo right now. It is such a gorgeous fit and the lace pattern is super pretty too. I actually bought this dress in a couple of different colours because I liked it so much. These lace skater dresses are total bargains at £12.00 each! They are just so lovely!

I had to get this dress in a size that was two sizes bigger than I would normally wear. I find Boohoo's sizing is quite small. 

What do you guys think of this dress? Do you ever order the same thing in multiple colours if you love it?

River Island Studded Handbag

I am such a sucker for studs. I think I would have studs on everything if I could. I would love a studded leather biker jacket! So, it's no surprise that my new handbag is partially covered in golden studs.

This lovely bag is from River Island and I really like it. I have a black quilted version which I have used almost everyday since I purchased it so I knew I would love this studded version. It's the perfect size for everything I cart about and I just love it. It has plenty of pockets too. I think it was a great idea to make the studs different sizes and shapes. It makes it that little bit more unique.

What do you think of this bag? Are you obsessed with studs too? Are you a lover of River Island handbags?

Essie's Muchi Muchi Polish

Essie's Muchi Muchi Polish was a bit of a disappointment for me. I don't know what was going on with the formula but it was so thin I just couldn't get an opaque, streak free finish. In my experience this is extremely unusual for Essie. It took me three coats of polish just to get to the stage of coverage that is shown in the photos.

I am hoping that I was just unlucky and bought a bottle with a dodgy formula. I think this polish would have looked gorgeous if it was more opaque. I might try using a white polish underneath it to prevent the streaky appearance.

Have u tried this polish before? Did you find it difficult to get a totally opaque finish?

Essie's Jamaica Me Crazy Polish

I only have one other metallic Essie polish so I thought that Jamaica Me Crazy would be a great addition to my collection. It's a gorgeous metallic purple polish and I'm so glad that I chose it.

It impressed me as much as most of the other Essie polishes that I have tried. This polish has an awesome formula which glides on brilliantly with the trademark Essie wide brush. It is streak free and opaque in just two coats which makes me very happy indeed. This polish is a lovely change for me.

What do you think of this polish? Do you like a nice bit of metallic polish every now and then?

Essie's Lovie Dovie Polish

Essie's Lovie Dovie Polish is a lovely baby pink colour. I really like all of Essie's pink polishes. There's something special about them though I'm not sure what. Maybe it's the pigmentation?!

This polish applied so beautifully and there were no problems with streaks. My nails were totally opaque within two coats of polish. I love the high quality of Essie's formula and how hard wearing and luxurious their polishes are.

What do you think of this polish? Are you a fan of pink polish? I would love to hear from you!

Essie's Roarrrrange Polish

Essie's Roarrrrange polish is a really deep reddish orange polish. It is really great to apply with its wide brush and amazing formula. This polish definitely glides on smoothly and is streak free within two coats which is excellent.

This polish was part of Essie's summer collection but I think you can definitely get away with wearing this polish during autumn and winter.

What do you think of this polish? Have u tried it before? Do you like orange nail polish?

Essie's Strut Your Stuff Polish

How amazing is Essie's Strut Your Stuff blue nail polish? It is such a bright, vibrant blue polish. It's vibrancy totally cheers me up so I will definitely be wearing this polish throughout autumn and winter.

I cannot fault this polish. It conforms to Essie's usual excellent quality in terms of the formula. It applies effortlessly without streaks and looks great after just two coats. The wide brush is awesome and the polish dries quickly. 

I definitely recommend this polish if you would like an amazing blue polish.

Have you got this polish? What do you think of the colour? Do you tend to wear blue polish much?

Essie's Madison Ave-hue Polish

My second post in my Essie polish series is on the awesome Madison Ave-hue shimmery purple polish. I really love Essie's Madison Ave-hue polish because it is so pretty and has a beautiful formula. It is gorgeous to apply as it glides on smoothly with excellent coverage. I only needed two coats of this polish for the perfect finish. The wide brush does a great job of application too.

I love how unique this polish is as it is an amazing purple colour with a shimmer through it. This makes it extra special.

What do you think of this polish? Have you tried this polish before?

Essie's Turquoise & Caicos Polish

Essie's Turquoise & Caicos Polish has been on my lust list for over a year and I am finally the proud owner of a beautiful bottle of it. I love the colour so much and of course you can never have too many mint or turquoise polishes.  

I am a huge fan of Essie nail polishes however I found this polish to have a rather thin formula. I think I must have bought a bottle where the formula wasn't quite right as I have never experienced this with Essie nail polish before. I found I needed three coats for a streak free finish.

Despite this I feel that the end result is still as gorgeous as Essie polish normally is. Therefore, it is worth the extra coat of polish.

Have u guys tried this polish? How did you find it?
