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?

Ophrys Skincare

If you have been following my blogs and social media you will have seen that I am currently partnering with Therapie Clinics and trying out their range of specialist facials to try and improve my skin. Alongside the facials (my second of which is coming up in April!) I have really tried to up my game with my skin care. Rather than just slapping everything that says hydration on I am really trying to target specific areas and problems. This has not been without it's troubles as my sensitive skin tries to adjust to this higher level of care. As a result of this - and a few other internal factors - I have been experiencing a few more breakouts than normal but I have been coping with them better. It's all about the give and take. And when it comes to the 'give' I was very lucky to be approached by Ophrys Skincare to talk about their new range of low molecular hyaluronic skincare with their patented Mini-Hax particle. "Low Ma-what?" I hear you say? Well... Low

Scented Scandals with Filthy Velvet

"Meet me at the tennis courts by The Ramore" It wasn't long into our afternoon together that Karen, one half of Northern Ireland's newest candlemakers  Filthy Velvet , laughed about the dodgy nature of our first meeting. It's not often that I'm asked to meet a stranger down a back street (albeit a very busy one near my favourite Portrush attraction) to then be led through stepped alleys and lanes back to their house! It's all a bit... Naughty. It's a good thing then that being a bit naughty is all par for the course for Karen who spends her days making and marketing her "Scandles". With names such as Filthy Shades Of Grey, Sext Me, Me So Thorny and scents including Leather, Irish Black Stout & Apple Pie these Scandalous Candles have been giving giggles to everyone I've heard talking about them. "Oh I want VPL!" Said no-one ever before their Vanilla, Peach, Lavender creation came into being.   It's fairly bril
