How did I accessorize today?

When at sixth form I am limited to a white top of choice, the school jumper and the school navy means accessorizing is key! (apologies for the not-so-great quality photos, they were taken on my dell webcam, but it's better than nothing!
 - I was feeling lazy)
I am tired after biology, maths, physics and a 4-period-long life class for art (fear not, we have breaks)
Anyhow, this is just a quick post from me sharing some accessories I wore today...
 The hair looked moreorless like ^ this when I got home 
 Squirrel (!) necklace about £3 from H&M 
- I saw a squirrel today aswell!! They are SO cute :)
Earrings £1 (methinks) from Spitalfield Market 
near Liverpool Street Station.
& some random clip which I believe belongs to my mumma...just for clipping some hair back...

Simple, hopefully not dull, let me know if you like this kind of thing...or any other suggestions you may have?
n.b. second post in two days - am I on a roll or WHAT!? ;)

Bad Blogger --> Blue Leopard?

I am a sorry excuse for a blogger these days...I shall make no promises of frequent posts...but do these tack-fastic nails make up for it?
Let me know if you want to know how to do these leopard print nails, so next time I will take step by step photographs :)

 stupid photo ^ is out of focus.. 
that's better...a little smudged but for a first try, I'm really happy with the results!

Love it? Hate it?
Let me know!

Iridescent Index Finger

So...I painted my nails 292 Barry M navy..
and then BAM slapped on the pink iridescence
Apologies for the chipped nails in the photos 
but I'm about to change my polish but wanted 
to blog about this combo...having a glittery 
nail polish on its own is a pretty fabulous idea
as it means you can make any mundane nail
into a tacky coat of gorgeousness.

Yeah, I know glitter can scream 'TACK' at you
but..erm...who cares? Depending on how you wear
it, it can look quirky and cool..yes, COOL.
In fact, I think that painting just one or two 
nails with the glitter is quite a fun look too.

The pink in the pink one doesn't show up
so much - it's mainly just glitter
and the navy, well I love this colour.
I love Barry M nail polish.
SUCH good value for the £££

At the time I bought the 264 Pink Iridescent,
there was a 2 for £5 offer on in Boots,
and a 3 for 2 offer on in Superdrug..
Barry M often have an offer on somewhere,
so shop around!I went with the 3 for 2
...better value (by a few pennies ;)
-got a bright orange colour and a coral for my Mumma, 
in case you were wondering!

Enjoyed your week and weekend?
My workload from school is increasing,
and my blog-life is suffering the consequences.
Will try and do better this week munchkins,

Red Hot

There's nothing like a splash of red 
to make you feel...."hot hot hot!"
(had to be done)

Bought this 'Astor' nail polish in Poland a while back..
While application and drying time are really quick,
the colour chips like an utter nightmare...
Best stick to Barry M for good value for money :)

Red hot chilli pepper earrings!
(bought at Belfast market, Ireland)
I am a huge fan of quirky jewellery that is more
unique than the pieces on offer in topshop or h&m...
(don't get me wrong..I love their accessories too:)

The classic converse...oh so comfortable and versatile
(these are from office, but you can also buy online)

and what is more iconic and chic than a
red lip..above all, on Marilyn Monroe.



1st Post

another akward 'first post' moment...


Well, now that's done...
