Hi all!
Long time no see and I am so so sorry!
I have been super busy but I won’t go on about it too much…
I now have my driving license by the way. I have a block fringe which I love!
And it’s Christmas. I’m hosting this year for 6! How scary! I hope I’ll be okay I’m trying to keep calm and tell myself it’s only a roast!
I will be blogging a lot more often and hope I get some lovely pressies I can review for you too!
Missed you! Xxx

Home Decor, My Style!

I am currently living in a rented flat in the South of England, so I unfortunately can’t do much to it! Alas, I have tried to dress up my victorian pad with a few cheeky tweaks. A lot of my accessories are shabby chic themed but I think they’re a bit edgy too!

I will post where you can get the products under each image…

Let me know what you think! x

This gorgeous vintage style bird cage is perfect for a chunky pillar candle! As you can see mine has melted down tremendous amounts since autumn kicked in! A lot of my products including the one is from The Lavender Barn. One of my favourite shops in the world, amazing products, amazing service and such good value! www.thelavenderbarn.co.uk.

This tea light holder is so so sweet and I couldn’t get a photograph to do it justice! The holes in the heart make the light twinkle out like glitter! It is by far my favourite tea light holder and once again it’s from The Lavender Barn

This is one bad ass candle! from Homebase it has such a beautifully homely scent of baking! Yum! Even better it was only £4.00, love it! I really like jar candles as they last forever and can be a more permanent decoration than the little ones, I find it such a shame throwing them away. This one is a goody! So that’s www.homebase.co.uk.

I LOVE THIS WREATH! I really do it’s amazing it was from TKmaxx. It’s made of loads of stacked paper butterflies, in the most beautiful patterns. It’s so colourful but not garish. It’s my personal jump into colour! Be a colour slob! www.tkmaxx.co.uk.

I’m upset with this photo! But this was a mirror I bought from The Lavender Barn, I had it as a mirror for a while but decided I wanted a bigger mirror and I needed a photo frame so I took the mirror out of it and filled it with my favourite photos and then stuck it on some satin ribbon as my walls are so high I have to lengthen every ribbon loop to make it look normal haha! I love it though! It’s a cream metal frame with metal leaves and plastic crystals as the flowers, very shabby chic!

These tea light holders are what I meant by “edgy”. I think they’re super cool and unique and because the ceramic is so thin on them that the light gives a sort of gaussian glow. Beautiful, these again were from The Lavender Barn (yes it’s a love affair).

This is meant to be a christmas decoration but it’s so beautiful it’s up all year round. I bought this in 2011 in Selfridges London. It’s by Gisella Grahame and it’s beautiful. One of my favourite things in my living room, it was a bit costly i think maybe £15. I’m hoping Selfridges stock more GG stuff this year as I love it! www.selfridges.co.uk.

This is so me! Bought as a gift from a friend once again from The Lavender Barn. I love the colour of the font it’s so punchy and fresh and adds edge to the mainly cream interior. I have it on a shelf in the living room just so the boyfriend knows who’s boss!

And that’s all folks! I am sure I will do more blogs like this as I love home decor so so much.

Let me know if you liked it and do visit the websites as all the companies listed have ever changing stock and your sure to find little gems!

Barry M Duchess Nail Effect Textured No 333

So yesterday I was having a boring sunday, instead of sitting at home watching the boyfriend play GTA I decided to go shopping and out the corner of my eye spotted this little treasure!

First and foremost don’t be fooled by the perfect lighting in beauty stores, they made me believe this shade was pinkier than it has turned out! Regardless I tried it and LOVED it!

It only cost me £3.99 and I think this shade is going to be perfect for winter and so suitable for the Christmas (yes I said it!) season!!!

One coat was almost perfect…It has a thick consistency like most Barry M polish but just to be sure I used 2 coats!

Duchess has an amazing glitter in it, the glitter runs through the polish perfectly and you will get sparkle with every sweep!

It has come out a taupe/beige kind of colour but with the different sized glitter specks it gives your nails a frosted look.

Very Glam!

I would give the Barry M Duchess varnish a 10/10! It will last ages, super glam, perfect for this season and feels awesome. This is a product I would recommend! If you want to indulge yourself I have posted where you can get it below…
