#1 Nail frenzy: how a cat became a butterfly...

Hi :)
So, I created this blog as a fashion blog, but I have to admit that although I am not too keen on most beauty products (just lazy? YES!!) (apart from eyeliner&mascara), I am addicted to nail polish! I love the stuff and I love to come up with crazy new designs... And hey if you have a special something in mind but that it ends up as something completely different, who cares??
So this is the story of how a cat became a butterfly.

What you will need:
- different colours of nail polish (my fav brands being Lancôme, O.P.I, Mavala and Rimmel (for the cheapy side). For a cat I chose an aqua blue background and a white face but it ended up being a white butterfly...(?)
- little round stickers (can be picked up anywhere for less than a £) or just a cotton bud
- nail polish remover (hahahaha)
-patience...

I used this white



My butterfly :)

A blob for the cat

I added moustaches afterwards to make it look more "cat-like"
So there you have it :) my butterfly & my cat- what do you think? Do you like customising your nails? If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask!

Happy blogging and stay tuned ;)

Do Winter, Spring, Summer but do not Fall

Hello everyone :)
Excuse the lack of posts- moving is very time consuming as will be the first week or so in a new place, plus back at school in just over a week...

The title is from a Jumper by Bensimon I saw the other week in Grazia, I absolutely love it - so cool, eh? (Just looked for it on Google and it's nowhere to be seen oh well).

Today's look is "to do" with the "do not fall" because of my shoes... 14cm heel including platform they are beautiful and considering they're Primark and that they're high are very comfortable...

scarf - claire's cat- woods ;)

belt/bow- primark

Dress- h&m

heels present :) primark
There we go :) Hope you all like it,

"Je suis une Parisienne"

Hello everyone,

So, as you all know I went to Disneyland on Monday and then went to visit Paris on Tuesday... On the monday I wore a white H&M shirt tucked into blue primark shorts with a belt and a little pair of sandals :) :
with "Jack Sparrow"
with Tigger ears :D
And now for the Disneyland, the prices, once inside, are unbelievable! By unbelievable, I mean that a balloon costs 7€50 (how long before it popped??), an ice-cream costs 4€ as does a pencil... And the headband that I am wearing in this picture 13€ (And no, I didn't buy it.). So there you go, you pay loads of money to get in, and you pay some more money once you're in there because, let's face it, who doesn't go somewhere without buying a souvenir??

Yes, believe it or not I did this and... it wasn't as scary as I thought! ;)







Day 2 in Paris- What is all the fuss about over the Eiffel tower?? It's just a load of metal in a pointy shape...  The best thing about Paris? The wonderful shops&restaurants, unfortunately I didn't get to visit any a)money & b)time we were racing around in a car...
Anyway here's my outfit: Miso dress from Republic, a little pair of sandals and an Oasis bag borrowed from my mum:
So there we go, Paris with my boyfriend and his family :)

#1 Wednesday's dream wish list...

Hi everyone :)
I have decided to do a weekly "wish list", on a wednesday as the title says ;) On the list will figure 5 to 10 various items of  clothing (+ shoes/accessories of course!!) that I have seen, and love! Obviously, my mum can in no way afford to buy me 5 to 10 items of clothing per week (hence the "dream").
So here we go, my first wednesday's dream wish list...
"Last minute summer purchases..."

Jameela galaxy dress from www.missguided.co.uk £14.99 and wow am I sooo in love with this dress <3 as soon as it's back in stock I think i'll be heading that way with my money ;)

Cross print denim shorts from www.missguided.co.uk for £24.99. I have been seeing this print on pretty much everything, but I far prefer it on shorts!

Tribal skirt from www.missguided.co.uk on sale :) really cute little skirt

Pink tribal dress from www.lavishalice.com, I can picture this dress in THE perfect outfit!

Aqua stilettos from www.prettylittlething.com grab them while they're on sale!

So there you have it, my first wednesday wish list :)
