Miss Selfridge Statement Pendant Necklace:From The Archives

I really love this colourful Pendant Necklace from Miss Selfridge. The combination of coloured gems that are used on this necklace are so gorgeous. I think it looks even more amazing in real life.

I love wearing this necklace with colourful clothing as well as black clothing. It's fun to just hold it up to clothes to see if it will look good. I really like the chain it is on too because it's really light weight and comfy.

What do you guys think of this necklace? I would love to hear from you!

Warehouse Jewell Encrusted Statement Necklace:From The Archives

Here is my post on this AMAZING necklace from the beginning of the year!....

As it is now January I thought we could all do with a bit of sparkle so hopefully I will have lots of pretty posts for you over the next month.

I thought that this gorgeous Jewell Encrusted Statement Necklace from Warehouse was a great sparkly starting point. I love this necklace so much because of how lovely it is. It sits so nicely around the neck and it's not too heavy at all! I think this necklace could totally dress up a casual outfit.

What do you guys think about it? You might be able to buy this in the Warehouse sale!

Boohoo Pink Jewelled Statement Necklace:From The Archives

I really love this Pink Jewelled Statement Necklace from Boohoo. The pink jewels are extremely sparkly and catch the light beautifully. They are such a vibrant colour. 

The necklace is not too heavy or chunky but still makes an impact on your outfit. It was also very decently priced.

I will definitely be buying necklaces from Boohoo in the future.

What do you guys think of this necklace? I would love to hear what you think!

Miss Selfridge Multicoloured Jewell Statement Necklace:From The Archives

There is something exotic about this Multicoloured Jewell Necklace from Miss Selfridge. I bought this in the sale and it was an absolute bargain at only a few pounds.

Miss Selfridge necklaces are made really well and this one is no exception. I love the combination of the different shaped and sized multicoloured jewels. It makes the necklace look really tropical. The deep colours of the jewels gives the feeling of luxury. The chain is really smooth so it is really comfy to wear.

What do you think of this necklace? I would love to hear your thoughts guys!

Warehouse Gold Chain Jewelled Statement Necklace:From The Archives

Oh gosh, I am rather addicted to beautiful, sparkly statement necklaces. This one is from Watehouse and I love it because there are elements of Art Deco in it. 

I love how pretty it looks when it is on and it's not too heavy which is great. In the right light this necklace is super sparkly. It is so detailed, it's just beautiful!

Are you a fan of statement necklaces? Do you have a favourite one right now? What do you think of this necklace?

Topshop Mint Statement Necklace:From The Archives

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 guys think about it? Do you have a favourite necklace right now?

Miss Selfridge Floral Jewelled Necklace:From The Archives

Oh my gosh-this Floral Jewelled Necklace was one of my favourite birthday presents. I really love it. It is from Miss Selfridge and is such a lovely statement necklace. The pink, purple and green jewels are just so pretty. I have been trying to wear this necklace with just about any outfit that I can get away with. It looks awesome when it is on and it sits really nicely! It goes great with high neck skater dresses.

Models Own's Studio 54 Disco Pants Polish: From The Archives

I am so excited about Models Own's Studio 54 Disco Pants Polish. It's just such a gorgeous metallic pink polish it makes you want to stare at your nails all day.

I am so impressed by this polish because the coverage and pigmentation is so amazing that you could get away with just one coat of polish. I used two here though. The formula is beautiful and the polish applies really smoothly. It is the perfect consistency-not too thin or too thick! 

This polish is great! I am extremely impressed by Models Own.

Have you tried any of the polishes from this collection? What do you think of this pink polish?

Topshop's Sweet Nothings Polish: From The Archives

Topshop's Sweet Nothings Polish is an amazingly awesome powder blue polish. Topshop have done so well with this polish-it's just lovely.

The colour is pretty mesmerising. It had a brilliant formula which applies smoothly with the lovely Topshop brush. The colour of the polish is highly pigmented and you only need two coats for a streak free finish. I have found that this polish is also long lasting.

All in all there is nothing bad to say. I would highly recommend it

Do you like this colour? Have you tried this polish before?

Essie's Sunday Funday Polish: From The Archives

Essie's Sunday Funday Polish is such a lovely coral colour with a subtle shimmer through it. This polish is definitely brightening up my winter months. I love this colour. I can't seem to get enough coral polish actually. If you love coral too then this is definitely one to add to your collection especially since it has a gorgeous shimmer through it. Essie polishes have such great formulas and I love their brushes too. Therefore, this polish was a dream to apply and looks prefect after just two coats of polish. 

I can't recommend this polish highly enough!

What do you think of this polish? Have you tired it?

Rimmel's Moon Walking Space Dust Polish: From The Archives

I really didn't expect very much from Rimmel's Space Dust Polish in Moon Walking which I received for Christmas. In the bottle this polish just looks like a nice silver/lilac metallic polish with a bit of shimmer. Once its applied to your nails it transforms into a stunning glitter polish. I was totally taken aback by how great this polish was.

 It applies so smoothly and its wide brush is brilliant. The formula is pretty darn amazing too. It's opaque with only two coats. The end result is awesome. This polish is ridiculously sparkly. It is meant to be a textured polish so you don't need to apply a top coat. Even though it is a textured polish it doesn't feel too rough. I would highly recommend this polish and I will definitely be purchasing more! I absolutely love it! There really hasn't been much hype about these polishes but I think they definitely deserve some recognition:) 

This polish is great for the party season! What do you think of it? Have you tried the space dust polishes before?

Nails Inc's Alexa Hearts Polish: From The Archives

Oh my gosh- Nails Inc's Alexa Hearts Polish is just adorable. I think that less is more with this polish and I maybe tried to overload my nails with too many hearts. I still think it looks cute though.

I painted this polish over Nails Inc's Alexa Cashmere polish and I think it looks awesome.

I found that you can't really paint on the hearts to your nails. I scooped them out of the bottle with the polish brush and placed them onto my nails with a cocktail stick which seemed to work really well.

You need to be careful not to overload your nails with the clear polish also. 

I sealed my hearts onto my nails with topcoat so hopefully they won't fall off or catch on my clothes. They don't stick out as much as the stars do.

I really really like Nails Inc's Alexa Hearts polish and think it is worth the effort.

What do you guys think of Nails Inc's Alexa Hearts Polish? Do you think I've added too many hearts to my nails? Let me know your thoughts!

Butter London's Fruit Machine Polish: From The Archives

Butter London's Fruit Machine Polish is a gorgeous baby pink colour. I absolutely love the Butter London polish bottles and of course the polish that is inside them. The formula of this polish is nice and provides great coverage after just two coats. Although the brush is quite thin it is actually really great. I can't find any faults with this polish at all. I guess it is at the higher end of the price spectrum but I suppose it could make an awesome present for someone. I got it as a gift and I was so excited about it!

I am feeling pretty positive about this polish. If you are looking for a pretty pink then this might be for you.

Have you tried Butter London polishes? What is your favourite Butter London polish?

Barry M's Meadow Silk Effects Polish: From The Archives

I absolutely adore Barry M's Silk Effects polishes. They are a lovely fresh take on our beloved pastel nail polish. Barry M's Meadow Silk Effects Polish is a gorgeous shimmery, pastel mint polish. This polish is so pretty when its on the nails. I find myself just wanting to stare at it all day! Not only does it look awesome but the polish itself is such great quality. It is a pleasure to use. The formula is beautiful and it glides onto the nails extremely smoothly with Barry M's perfect brush. For an opaque finish within two coats of polish I highly recommend using a good base coat before applying the polish. I found this polish to be hard wearing and long lasting when worn with a base & top coat.

I think Barry M's Silk Effects Polishes are really awesome and would definitely recommend them for their beauty, quality and great price.

Rimmel Shooting Star Space Dust Polish: From The Archives

Ooh I'm loving this Rimmel Space Dust Polish in Shooting Star. A few weeks ago I posted about the awesome lilac Moon Walking polish which spurred me on to try some of the other polishes in the collection. 

Shooting Star is a silver textured glitter polish from the Rimmel Space Dust collection and I love it. I'm now addicted to these polishes as they are so sparkly. I wasn't sure if I'd like textured glitter polishes but I love them. 

The formula is so nice and it glides onto your nails as if it is just metallic polish rather than glitter polish. The brush is really nice and applies the polish effortlessly. You only need two coats of this polish and your nails are perfect. I also love the fact that this polish dries so quickly and it is extremely hard wearing. Even though you don't wear a top coat with it, it just doesn't chip. 

I would definitely recommend these Space Dust polishes! I am really excited about them and can't wait to try a few more:-)

Have you tried these Rimmel polishes before? If so, what did you think of them?

Nails Inc's Alexa Chung Camo Polish: From The Archives

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?

Models Own's Sun Hat Polish: From The Archives

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?

Essie's Madison Ave-hue Polish: From The Archives

Here is a post from the past about a gorgeous Essie 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?

Butter London's Lillibet's Jubilee Polish: From The archives

Butter London's Lillibet's Jubilee Polish is a glamorous silver polish. It has a gorgeous metallic shimmer throughout it and also has a cold tone to it.

This polish applied nicely although I would prefer if Butter London made their brushes a little less thin. The formula was lovely and I only needed two coats of this polish for full coverage which was great!

I am a little bit addicted to shimmery metallic polishes at the moment. 

What do you think about this nail polish? Do you like metallic polishes?

Barry M's Atlantis Aquarium Glitter Polish: From The Archives

Here is my New Year Nails post:).....

This year I am wearing Barry M's gorgeous Atlantis Aquarium Glitter Polish for New Year. I am so excited to show this polish to you guys. It literally looks like I have jewell encrusted nails. This polish is just gorgeous and it's Barry M so it was a bargain price and is amazing quality.

All of the differently shaped and coloured glitter particles really make this glitter so special.

It applied really nicely although you have to be careful that you don't overload your nails with too much of the clear polish. I did a lot of strategic glitter placement but it was worth it.

I wore this polish over Nails Inc's Black Taxi polish which I think is the perfect base colour.

I am extremely happy to be seeing in the new year wearing this gorgeous polish. I would highly recommend it!

What do you guys think about this glitter polish? I would love to hear from you!

Topshop's Sweetie Belle Polish: From The Archives

Topshop's Sweetie Belle is a gorgeous lilac polish with a gold shimmer running through it. This polish can look quite pink in some lights but it is still just as lovely.

Topshop are seriously on top of their polish game right now!

This polish was lovely to apply and the formula was great. I needed three light to medium coats of this polish for full opacity as this Polish was slightly more sheer. The brush as always was fantastic. It dried quickly and as with all of Topshop's polishes was long lasting.

I think this is such a pretty polish! It's such a beautiful polish to have as we leave winter behind.

What do you guys think about Topshop's Sweetie Belle polish? Do you like the shimmer through it?

Models Own's Pink Wellies Festival Polish

Models Own's Pink Wellies Festival Polish is a gorgeous mid-toned pink shade.  It looks great when it's on your nails and really brightens up your day.

This Polish was a dream to apply to my nails because the formula was so excellent. It is the perfect consistency and the brush is great. I love how well pigmented this polish is and my nails were totally opaque after two coats of polish. My nails were streak free. I was really happy with how quickly this polish dried. As always with Models Own this polish is pretty hard wearing.

I can't wait to wear Models Own's Festival glitter polish, which is called Colour Explosion, over it!

I definitely recommend this polish especially if you are going to any festivals this summer as after all it is from The Festival Collection.

What do you think about Models Own's Pink Wellies Festival Polish? Have any of you bought the collection? Let me know your thoughts!

Models Own's Colour Explosion Festival Polish

OH MY GOODNESS. How awesome is this glitter polish? I absolutely love it. Models Own's Colour Explosion Festival Polish is a stunning sparkly and colourful glitter polish. It consists of silver holographic glitter particles and matte blue, yellow, peach and green differently sized glitter particles. 

I have painted this glitter polish over Models Own's Purple Bandana Festival Polish and I think it looks really great.

This polish was really nice to apply and the brush was great. I did do a lot of strategic glitter placement and a lot of strategic glitter scooping. That is completely expected with glitter polish. This polish also dried fairly quickly and the glitter particles were nice and smooth on the nail.
I think that this polish is really cool addition to my polish collection. It adds something new and vibrant to my nails. I would definitely recommend it especially if you have bought any of the other Festival Polishes. 

What do you think about Models Own's Colour Explosion Festival Polish? Have you tried it? Let me know what you think!

McFly's Autobiography: Unsaid Things...Our Story

I never would have thought that I would have been totally addicted to reading McFly's autobiography. I was never really a big fan of them but their book was so interesting that I was completely hooked.

McFly's autobiography "Unsaid Things...Our Story" is such a great book because it guides you through the lives and careers of four young men. I love finding out about people's childhoods and what they were like when they were young so I loved the beginning of this book.

What I found super interesting was how the band was formed and all the insider information about the music industry that the band provided to explain how the band was formed. It was also great to read about their career so far as there were a lot of really cool things I didn't know about the band. For example, they really didn't like their image or their sound when they released their album Above The Noise. That is the only McFly album I have ever bought because I loved their new sound.

Overall, I was completely shocked at how much I enjoyed this book. I would definitely recommend giving it a read even if you are not a McFly fan. You might find it really interesting!

Have any of you guys read McFly's autobiography? What did you think about it? Are any of you huge fans? I would love to hear from you!

Educating Yorkshire: One To Watch

Educating Yorkshire is one of the best documentary series I have ever watched. Some of you may have seen a post I did a while ago about the awesome Educating Essex which was the first series of the show. Both series are on Netflix an Amazon Instant Prime now!

I found that Educating Yorkshire was even more amazing than the first series which was set in Essex. I think the teachers and pupils in Educating Yorkshire completely captured the hearts of the British public. I found it great to watch teachers who genuinely cared about the welfare and happiness of their pupils rather than exam results alone.

The show highlights how young people really need the support of teachers during their school career.  It seems that good, positive relationships with teachers is a vital part of schooling and something which I feel needs to be addressed more often.

I love watching all the mischief that the cameras catch along with the hilarious moments that pupils have with each other both inside and out with the class room. 

I definitely recommend this great documentary series as it is do interesting and yet extremely entertaining. It's definitely worth watching! 

Have you guys seen Educating Yorkshire? What did you think of it? Do you wish you had had teachers like the ones in the show?  I love hearing from you!
