Oh, Hiya! NOTD and closed missing persons report..


Well hello there! It's been a crazy couple of months for both Bex and I hence the mysterious disappearance of both of us. We have both been moving house, myself in Leeds and Bex in Belfast (as well as her trip to London for the IMATS!!)

I'm heading back to Northern Ireland for my yearly trip home on the 13th of this month for a week... I'm meeting Bex at the airport for a catch up and then i'll head to my hometown to meet my parents as they are flying in from Italy the same day. We shall meet up again, I like to spend as much time in Belfast as possible when I'm over home and I'm sure a joint post will occur too! This may be heavily St Patricks day themed as we are heading out that day. I'm thinking themed nails and face paint to be honest!

Soooo, while there is all that to look forward to, I still have some boxes to unpack here - note to self... need more storage *groan*

Here's a NOTD, my nails have fallen into disrepair with all the box moving and shifting and my right thumb nail had a huge chunk missing from it which has been fixed thanks to the help of teabagging ...uh teabags. (I'll explain in another post at the weekend..)

I have a herring problem - O.P.I
Part of the Dutch collection I got from Buya Powa.




Holland/Dutch collection from Buya Powa. Love these shades, can't wait to try them all out. I was going to go for the red first but when this sparkly green/grey caught my eye it had to be first.

My new bottle of Seche which I purchased from here Only £5.50 with free delivery!! Came the next day too, I'm well impressed with the seller and will definitely buy again.


My Current base coat...it's a bit meh but while it's still nearly full I can justify buying another just yet so will persevere with it. I still reckon the best base coat out there is the Nails Inc Kensington Caviar base.

Does anyone have any base coat recommendations? And also places to get decent, not too expensive storage solutions?

A Star Is Born

Lady Gaga is an absolute star. 

Before, during, and I dare say after, A Star Is Born I have loved Gaga. There’s a narrative going about during their press junket that Bradley Cooper had to push hard to get film execs on board with casting Gaga as Ally in the latest adaption and, if true, that bugs me because having seen it I genuinely feel that there is no one else that could have played her. Ally’s character has clearly been moulded around her talents - as with Barbara we have abandoned the movie star goals focussing solely on music - and I would love to know exactly how much was changed or added after casting. Bradley Coopers’ Jackson Maine cuts more of a sympathetic character than we’ve seen in previous versions of A Star Is Born, right back to the original 1937 film which inspires some of the more selfless themes in the 2018 reboot, so much so that it makes you wonder who the film is really about. 


The women of A Star Is Born have always been iconic and Lady Gaga’s portrayal takes n…

Monday mane-tenance

You may roll your eyes at the, painfully, alliterative title but I was really proud of that when I thought it up at stupid o’clock last night. After close to a decade of blogging in some form or another it gets hard to come up with these things!

As you might have guessed we’re here today today to talk about my Monday night hair ritual. You’ve heard of Skincare Sunday, well this Monday Mane-tenance. Every week - pretty much - I give my hair a loving boost with some form of deep treatment. My current favourite combo - in an effort to try and keep my colour between hairdresser appointments - is the Clairol Colour Booster in copper and the infamous £1 Argan Oil hair mask available from Poundland. 

There are a number of colour boosters on the market at the minute. I had been toying with buying the Maria Nila luminous colour masques on the Sally’s website when I came across the Clairol version in store in Superdrug. Half the price and right in front of my face. Just how I like it. I’ve bee…

Belfast Fashion Week House Of Fraser Press Preview

Michelle & I were very excited to get an invite to the Belfast House Of Fraser Spring/Summer Press Preview recently. Now unfortunately it was a bit far for Michelle to commute (this time!) but I, luckily, had the day off work and went to have a nosy along with a few other FABB bloggers!
