Bargain Basement

Well it's mid-season sale time again and most of the time I boycott sales as its super busy and usually the tat that they couldn't sell 4 years ago on the racks. Seen as I had a day off today I wandered round the shops in the hope of finding a nice plain jersey maxi dress (which never materialised).
I did however get a maxi skirt and a t-shirt - both from the sales!! 
The skirt is just what I was looking for and I know it's not going to be anyones cup of tea but here we go..

It's from the Lipsy sale and was £12.50, lovely colour and texture and I'm loving the contrasting waistband.
Next from the sales was this t-shirt from Topshop and was meant to be £12

I talked the guy into a further 15% off as it had make up on the collar. I don't want to go all Mary Portas on you but if a garment has ANYTHING wrong with it, make up, a defect or a pulled thread always ask for a discount. It's worth it in the end. For the sake of sticking this in the washing machine I got it for £10.20. You may not always get a discount but it's worth asking and most places usually will as what are they going to do with items with make up round collars?? Go for it.

Ps how orange was the girl that tried this on??!!!

My Homage To The Gods Of WAH

Hello boys & girls! And welcome new followers. Michelle & I are very excited to share our thoughts with you.
Ok, cheesy bit over with, it's been a while since I've done a proper NOTD post, I was very conscious that I was being too nail heavy so have avoided writing about my recent weird/disastrous creations. But I have to mention my current talons because I've had so much feedback on them from friends & colleagues.  First up, these are not my design, those in the know will recognise them from WAH NAILS.
[edit] I forgot to mention that I saw a post from Little Red Fox where she did a much closer take on the design which inspired me to have a go! Maybe this could be the start of a Nail Meme? [/edit] My interpretation is loose as I didn't have the colours to just straight copy them. Secondly, this was my first ever attempt at leopard print nails so its a bit dodgy I apologise. My favourite nail is my left thumb as you see below (apologies for the dodgy photography…

Something a bit lacey.

I've FINALLY got round to trying out these Nail Rock wraps. I've had them for months but it's just one of those things I've been putting off for ages.
They are really pretty and amazingly easy to put on, with the help of a hairdryer and a bobby pin!
The only downside of these are I can see them peeling a little at some of the edges already, but I type all day in work so it's understandable. Though a mani for me can usualy tough it through a week under the same circumstances.
Pretty, no? x

obsession? or Collection?

Just before Christmas my best friend Gayle was expressing her shopping woes when it came to my present. Know my love for Barry M she wanted to get me some but was scared as she didn't know what I already had! So she asked me to blog my collection for future reference. 
CRINGE!!!
Dare I reveal the entirety of my obsession? Because, lets face it, I can pretty it up by saying I'm collecting but I'm plain ole obsessed and everyone knows it! So here goes...






So there it is, a close up of my ever expanding "collection". Or at least the ones I have with me in Belfast. I have more in storage & sneaky order from Cult Nails (treatments rather than new colours as much as it pained me not to indulge) on the way.
I think I need help. Any NPAA* groups in belfast?

*Nail Polish Addicts Anonymous.
**No this not a real OPI, for starters the real That's Berry Darling is pink! Its was cheap off eBay & was the only polish on there that was the exact shade of Yellow that I…
