Yet again, another rather random post from the world of heart-shaped-bruise!

Ok, so I'm going to start by sharing my new favourite nail varnish with you. Now you may or may not have noticed: I have a LOT of nail varnishes.

This is one I picked up the other week:

I must have shared with you before, my love of George @ Asda nail varnishes.. I've got quite a few. They're such a bargain, & tend to be really good too!

This was really difficult to get a decent picture of, so I had to give up. I recommend you check it out in person. It's the most gorgeous, two-toned shade of purple/blue. Honestly, it's amazing. I took loads of pics, but my phone-camera is just not picking up the amazingness of it.

I'll show you this pic, because it also shows off one of my newest rings:

Now, I've already mentioned how gorgeous the colour of my nail varnish is, & how the pictures really don't reflect it. What I now need to tell you, is that the above photo (with new ring) was taken 10 days after application. 10 days. Seriously. How good is that!? I honestly can't express how impressed I've been with this nail varnish. There are NO chips! It's not looking quite 100%, I will admit, but not TOO far off!

All this for the bargain price of only £1.

Cannot recommend enough :) And like I say, I've got quite a few nail varnishes from this range, & generally I've always been pleased with them - particularly for the bargainous price!

Ok, so now what? That was the main thing I wanted to talk about!

Do you want to see my new necklace? (It hasn't actually arrived yet) I'm awaiting its delivery.

Picked this up for mere pence on eBay. Thought it was cute.

Do you want to see my new favourite belt? (Can something count as your favourite, even if you've never worn/used it!?)

Check out that baby - isn't it rather lovely? Tis one of my Dorothy Perkins sale purchases. It's ever so pretty!

My new favourite shoes? (Even though, again, haven't worn them yet!)

I love them, even if they haven't actually graced my feet yet!

This is a pretty rubbish post. I really didn't have a plan at all of what I was going to talk about/show you (is it obvious!) Although I did warn you it was going to be random again..!

Has anyone been watching that new programme - 'Bedlam'? I've only seen one so far, but I quite liked it - I think it definitely has potential - & is at least, watchable. Not sure if my opinion was swayed though because it's starring Will Young. & I've totally got a soft spot for Mr Young.. how could you not!?

Look at that cheeky face - how could anyone resist!? Bless him :)

Anyway, I've only got 3 days of school left & then I'm on half term. Thank God! (In fact, just remembered I'm out on a course on Thursday, so only 2 actual school days) Am in desperate need of a break, so am looking forward to half term. It's only a week, but it'll hopefully be enough to recharge my batteries a bit.. Honestly, working with teenagers day in, day out, is absolutely draining!

Ok, I'm actually going to go now - this post is becoming more & more random by the second..

Take care,



  1. The belt is fabulous and I LOVE those shoes too, very cool!!

    Bow Dream Nation xx

  2. 10 days? Who would have thought ASDA sold such hard wearing nail polish?!
    I was quite keen to watch Bedlam, but I missed the first episode - I do love a bit of Will Young!

  3. I love the colour of that nail polish! I feel a trip to Asda is on the cards today.
    My friends are all very excited about half term, we're going to be ladies who lunch at Wetherspoons and raid charity shops all next week. xxx

  4. A trip to Asda to get some of their nail polishes I think! I like your random post and I love the belt! :)

  5. Lovely colour and looks amazing for 10 days wear. The fern ring is gorgeous.

    And those shoes, WANT!!!! X

  6. That nail varnish is gorgeous. I'm amazed by it lasting 10 days though - I don't seem to be able to manage more than a few days without any type of varnish chipping.

  7. I had no idea Asda sold there own brand nail varnish, £1 pretty much beats most drugstore brands and gives you the chance to try so many different colours x

  8. I LOVE that colour, I really need to paint my nails but I have chillblains on my hands and don't want to draw attention to them haha.

  9. Hey, thanks for the comment on my post & I'm sorry to hear how long you've had your cyst for! If you haven't already tried this, ask your GP to organise physio, and failing this try weight training or perhaps guitar or another instrument which requires stretching the joints. I hope you'll find something that works for you; it's actually terrifying hearing your wrist pop frighteningly loudly, yet once the cyst has burst there is barely any pain. Fingers crossed for you xx

  10. That's a lovely colour nail varnish!

  11. that ring is gorgeous !!
    and i really love the colour of that nail polish! George are actually pretty good !!
    please check out my blog ?

  12. Hi :)

    I awarded you a Versatile Blogger Award over on my blog, as i adore your very cute blog, and find it so inspiring!

  13. Ooo, I can't believe that was 10 days after application. The colour still looks so vibrant.

    Hehe, yup, that was me in the Clothing at Tesco Facebook album.

  14. I picked up two gorgeous George nail varnishes the other day and I think I will deffinetly be buying more!

    10 days is a long time for any nail varnish to last so for ones as cheap as a £1 that do the job is great.


  15. Tells you how much I know... didn't even know they did them! But will definitely have to check them out.
    Thanks for your sweet comment,

    Rosie x

  16. Hello lovely :)
    I love Asda
    I love their underwear too
    And their pjs too! I've never had a chance to take a look at the nailpolishes because the nearest asda from me is about 30 mins away in the car :(
    Its a really beautiful colour though, and so is the bow belt
    And hey - half the stuff i own are my favourites and i've never worn them, its okay :P XX
