Ok, so I've been busy. And lazy. And unmotivated. And pissed off with Blogspot (because I composed an entire, great, long post a few days ago, which then disappeared off the face of the Earth - not happy!)
There you go, that's the excuses out the way.. But I'm here now, just about! So here goes for a truly random post, as always with me.. Ok, so where to start?!

Here are some pics of my more recent nail varnish/ring combos:






(Check out the glittery tips - cool!)




Since I last posted, they've also been this colour:



- which I loved.

And they are currently this colour:



which is supposedly Green Tea. Now, this is my first experience of Models Own - I bought a few of their colours in the asos sale a while back, but hadn't got round to using them yet. I've heard so much about them, I was really expecting good things. However! Well, the colour is absolutely NOTHING like the pic for a start. Which as it happens, isn't the end of the world, as I like it anyway. It's also a matte finish, which is ok now I've got used to it, but I really wasn't sure of to begin with. I do think it should state if they're matte - I'm sure I would've bought it anyway, but I would've been prepared!
It went on nicely, but it chipped REALLY badly, really quickly! Which I was definitely not expecting. I've now stuck a coat of black Instant Effects over it, which I thought was quite cool, until my nephew informed me he liked my 'dinosaur nails'..
Anyway, rant over.

I need to say a big:


to Sarah @ amilliondresses.blogspot.com (apologies for the Disney 'thanks' - can't resist a bit of Disney, particularly after my trip last month!)

I won a giveaway on Sarah's blog, which meant I was lucky enough to receive:



which was obviously particularly apt, seeing as I'd just, I think the week before, been up The Eiffel Tower itself - woo! So yes, thank you ever so much Sarah - & I really am sorry it's taken this long to send my thanks - I am a particularly rubbish blogger, it's true..

Ok, so back to the randomness of this post.. Erm.. I've bought a ridiculous amount recently, as usual. I've been off work on my Easter hols, so I suppose that's made it easier to spend some money!

My recent purchases include, but are not limited to, these:







All from Dorothy Perkins. (The earrings were for my Mum for Mothers Day - I don't have my ears pierced - little fact for you there, fact fans!)




Also bought this today (from New Look):






I know, I know, it's hot & sunny - not jumper weather. But I couldn't resist it. I also am still not sure that it's my colour, but oh well, it's mine now, so who cares!?


I've also got another order due to arrive tomorrow from DPs, so I'll share that with you at some point too :)

Right, a couple of things, then I'm off again. First things first, I'm going to be holding a giveaway, I'm thinking it may well be a 250 followers giveaway - but I'll let you know the details when I decide :)

And the other thing, I had a rather large clear out yesterday - would you guys be interested if I did a blogshop type thing on here? The vast majority, if not all, of it is brand new with tags - between sizes, probably 8-14..? ) oh, & shoes - size 5-6. What do you think? I was going to take all the photos tomorrow & sort it all out, to hopefully actually do the blogpost on Friday probably.. but I don't want to if no one will actually be interested.. So please be honest! Let me know :) Cheers!

Ok, that's your lot for now.

Take care,

Dx

  5. Wow, the red polish looks amazing with your grey skirt! Love it :D basically the postage charge for Eyeko is either free, but if you choose free postage there is no guarantee that you will get your order because it's not recorded at all, so you basically have to choose the only other option which is £3.50 recorded and signed-for delivery, with which on the website Eyeko claim you can track your order. However when they sent me the tracking code Royal Mail informed me that you can't track the status of recorded and signed-for deliveries until it's actually been delivered, it all sounds so dodgy, and then I get a message saying my delivery may take up to 28 days which considering the postage charge was £3.50 is a bit mental! Lol. Thank you for always commenting on my posts, it really does make me happy to see in my inbox 'New comment on ' :) I meant to comment on this post yesterday but totally forgot because I was so sleepy haha I'm sorry! I hope you don't feel too miserable even if it is for no reason! :) xxx

  8. There are still jumpers tempting me too, don't worry! And your nails look fab. I have some Models Own polishes and while they didn't chip too badly for me, they do sort of peel off after a day or two which I find really odd :/

  19. I hated when that happened so I've started writing posts in a word document just to make sure I won't hate life when Blogger decides to take a break. I love your white pearls ring, so beautiful. I also love nail polish- an addiction that got a little out of control, so your post doesn't help but, still, I'm following just because I read the last 4 articles you wrote and I liked them a lot.

  28. PLEASE can someone help me!?

    I've been trying to post ALL week, & can't! The post is saved in my drafts, but when the mouse hovers over the 'publish post' button, it says 'JAVASCRIPT VOID' & when I actually click the publish button, it does nothing. Absolutely nothing.

    I don't know what to do!
    I've literally tried at different intervals throughout the week but it's always the same.
    I've tried on a different computer, in case it was something to do with my laptop, but that didn't help either.

    I've lost 10 followers since my last post, & I REALLY want to update my blog, but can't!

    Has anybody got ANY suggestions/help for me at all!? It's seriously doing my head in!

    Thanks guys :)

  29. love both colour nail varnishes! I hope you figure out how to post, I sometimes can't log in and comment on some people's blogs which is darned annoying! xx

  30. omg that sucks about your blog, I have no idea what the problem would be or how to fix it, nothing like that has happened to me. maybe there is something wrong with the html, have you changed anything recently? maybe you should send blogger an email. I want to see these leopard print trousers, they sound cool

  31. Hello there! I had problems with blogger a couple of weeks ago when it went crazy but not recently! That sucks - I don't know what to suggest. Have you tried a different internet browser? That worked for me when blogger went funny.
    I hope it gets sorted out because I can't wait to see more nail shots!
