It's all about glittery nails at Christmas



I'm not normally into much sparkle and glitter on my clothing, however when it comes to nail varnish I am most certainly there! You can't beat a good glittery nail varnish on your ring finger or all your fingers, it's Christmas so what the hell. I have four here to share with you, one is very new and the others have been re-purchased.

American Apparel- Supernova- £7.00 -
Takes a while to dry, but when it's good to go, it's a show stopper. Being multi-coloured you can wear this with so many outfits which is great for this time of year when your off shopping, to lunch, seeing family and friends and then going out to dinner. It has a variety of sized glitter pieces which give it a bit of different overall effect which is really eye catching. 

Barry M- Pink Sapphire- £2.99 -
A pot of pink sparkly goodness for under three quid! Such a bargain polish and has great lasting quality when used with a good top coat. The circle pieces of glitter are all pink, but then there are single strands of silver glitter which changes colour in the light which can look so pretty. It can catch the light to look gold, silver, pink, blue, the list goes on. If your going for a proper girlie pretty glitter, this is your gal.

Essie- Leading Lady- £5.44 -
This is one of a kind in my collection as the polish is not see through with glitter. Its actually a dark red which on the brush can look red/black its that dark. The glitter is a bright red and very sparkly. Can be worn on its own, but if thats the case you do need to layer a few times. I normally chuck on any red I have then put this on top. Has the lasting power of shellac and can stay on my nails for what feels like forever. A perfect Christmas Eve/day polish.

Ciate mini- Snow Globe- Full size--> £9.00 -
A clear polish that contains multi sized holographic flakes, which transform your coloured polish into an actual snow globe! One coat gives a few random pieces of glitter but layer on a few coats and your fingers are ready to hit the dance floor. The only issue I've had with this is that some pieces of glitter are that big that they don't lay on my nails flat, instead they stick out and catch in my hair and so on. The holographic pieces catch the light and show of a few different colours. This is especially beautiful when put on top of a nude or neutral polish.

Will you be adding some sparkle to your nails the festive season? Get in touch and let me know! Would love for people to tweet me a picture or tag me in an Instagram post!

Also, a massive hello to my new subscribers! I am so happy to have you hear :)

Happy painting on this cold and dark mani Monday!

For The Love Of Cucumbers and Skincare

AD with Yes To Good morning and happy National Cucumber Day! I love cucumbers! There, I said it. I like to eat them, drink them in juices and smoothies, and even like them in my skincare routine. Over the last couple of months I've really struggled with my skin. Getting hard lumps under the skin, and rash like breakouts that were super persistent and refused to die down. I thought about whether or not I was using too many different products and clogging up my skin, or it was just down to stress or something. All I knew was that I had to give something a go and hope for it to work it's magic on my problem skin as it was getting me down. What a day to share my love of cucumbers and my love of the  Yes To Cucumber  range with you cuties. Make yourself a cheese (vegan cheese if you're like myself) and cucumber sandwich and take a read about a range you'll want try!  It may shock you to see an entire range made with cucumbers, but it's actually a

A November Book Haul

contains pr products, *aff My obsession with books and reading is still going strong guys! Since my post way back outlining how I was getting back into ready ... I think was back in 2018 and here we are. I've smashed my Goodreads goal of reading 50 books this year, and I'm actually closer to achieving 100 books read. I don't want to put too much pressure on myself but, I'd LOVE to get there. Anyway, books are a huge part of my life now. And even though I like everyone go through slumps where I don't want to read anything, when I am in the reading mood I normally have a few on the go at the same time and have turned into a big mood reader. Which I've found actually helps me get through books so much quicker.  As a member of the Book Break Insiders Influencer group, I am lucky enough to be sent a selection of books every month. Which helps to keep my nose is a book that's for sure! Book 1: The Silence by Don DeLillo* A timely and compelling novel about what ha

Cruelty Free Beauty | Brands and Product Favourites

Good day beauties! So, you guys have been messaging me here, there and everywhere about sharing my top cruelty free beauty products and brands with you.  And because my cruelty free living post did so well, guess what you guys have today?  You've guessed right! And I'm super happy to share with you some top beauty products and brands I reach for, but first I'd like to just share with you why going cruelty free is good.  For me, having a cruelty free lifestyle means not using anything containing animals or their by-products, or using products where animals have been mistreated and used for testing them, and is the way I wish I had chosen to live my life a long time ago. Make up and skincare are products are materialistic in my eyes. We want these things and like them, so I think it's so unfair for innocent animals to be used, killed, kept in awful conditions and tested on against their will just so we could have that new mascara. There's just no need for
