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?

Budget Beauty Brushes: are they really worth it?

I know what you're thinking. A second bargain beauty post in a row? Maybe switch it up eh? Ummmm nope. I love my premium makeup items, I really do. But I love finding a bargain beauty buy just as much, if not more.

Today I'm talking brushes. There seems to be an incredible range of brushes out there at the minute. Whether it's high end, mid range, or budget, there is something for everyone and there is usually a dupe (or shall we just call them copies?)
Today I'm looking at budget brushes including one of those infamous copies.

Unbranded EBay Brushes 7 piece set for 5.69





An obvious replica of the Real Techniques Precious Metal brushes and at first glance the only difference is that these don't have RT stamped on the side. The design, the colours, the shapes are exactly the same! I've never used the real Real Techniques ones but I'd have to say if I spent £30 or more on these I'd be hugely disappointed. Having only spent a fiver I'm really chuffed. The…

Lush Slap Stick

I’m going through a bit of a rut. Of course “a bit of a rut” doesn’t really cover what I’m going through but let’s leave the tough stuff to my doctors and new therapists and stick with “rut” here. Anyways… it’s taken it’s toll on me, both emotionally and physically. On the rare days when I have the mindset or strength to wear makeup I hate it. My self care routine has gone the way of the poop emoji and although I wasn’t actively looking for a solution I knew that I needed something that would help hide the neglect I was doing to my skin and lessen the damage.

This was when I discovered the new Lush Slap Stick foundation. Their selling point is that their unique packaging free range of makeup helps reduce waste and is completely eco friendly. My buying point was that I could slap it on my face any which way and give it a quick blend out without looking like a toddler who discovered their mums pan stick and, with its coconut oil base and a whole blend of other oils, it would at least h…

Am I Disabled?

This article has been going through my head quite a lot recently and I’m feeling a little self indulgent so bear with me.

As a kid I was on the special needs list throughout school and given a classroom assistant to help with my tracheostomy care. I was considered disabled enough to warrant disability benefits right up until I turned 18 when they decided that I wasn’t mentally incapacitated enough and too independent. A panel of bureaucrats sat across the table and said “we can see you are but there’s nothing we can do.” I didn’t tick the right boxes.
I’ve worked since I was old enough and supported myself as much as I could and excluding a few short absences from work I have been successful in that.
Until now.
Now I can’t support myself. I struggle with self care. I’ve had to give up my home and I’ve lost my independence. I’m back to getting surgery’s every 6-8 weeks. They were usually just day cases but the last few have been fairly severe with extended stays (I get to have another …
