OOTD - Daisy May

Shirt, skirt, sunnies, rings, wedges - Primark / Headband - New Look / Nails - Barry M Peach Melba
Oh wow, that's a lot of Primark in one place.. I apologise.
I adore maxi skirts in the Spring / Summer. Perfect for those evening BBQ's or drinks in the garden. This blue one is such a pretty colour, goes with just about everything.
My wedges though, oh god. I bought them last Summer & despite being one of the prettiest pairs I own, they kill my feet. I can hardly walk in them! & my headband, I've probably had that a good few years now, but I seem to always be able to find an occasion to whip it out for!
How are you all lovelies? Bank holiday weekend was so gorgeous with the sunshine & now we're back to rain & coldness. Urgh. Hope you're all well.

Recent Nail Art #5

Copper - 17 & Sparkle Touch - Miss Sporty

These are actually quite Christmassy nails. I didn't mean for them to be but I just added the glitter as a top coat as the gold looked so plain by itself. Mmm, weird as we're just getting some sunshine in the UK now!

Turquoise - Barry M

I absolutely adore this shade, it's one of my favourites from Barry M. But.. I couldn't resist adding to it..

Turquoise - Barry M & Nail art pens in White & Pink - Models Own

I was totally inspired by bloggers recently to try this flower print design. I love how simple & cute they are & surprisingly easy to do! Plus, it makes the Turquoise even prettier.

Ultra Gold - OMG London Cosmetics & Confetti - L'Oreal

These I named the bumblebee nails. I'm addicted to Confetti by L'Oreal & I use it as a top coat at least once a month. I find yellow nail varnish to be the one colour I don't particularly like on my nails but adding this top coat really made them unique (& less yellow!)

Hello / James won me this : ) / Nandos / Crumpet (my first one everrrr!) / Late night scrabble / OOTD / Ombre / Baby's new harness / NOTW / Best film ever / New shirt for work / Naughty / Penguin case in honour of London Zoo / Giraffes! / Magic Mike poster, yum / NOTW / Sunnies / & James found my spares.. / Baby / OOTD / Sunny walk / OOTD / We're silly / Alan Carr's last day. :'(

Today, I'm in the worst mood ever.
Not only do I have to say goodbye to my first car which I've had since I was 17, I've got problems with my pay check, feel ill & my head feels like it's about to explode.
But, this past week has been a good one. : D
If you saw my previous post, you'll know myself & the boy went to London Zoo last Thursday. It was so much fun & we got to see the giraffes which was the highlight of the day for me.
I also managed to squeeze in a shopping day with Gemma, a meal with Dan & a dog walk with Honey.
Just need to breathe through today & all will be good. Typical Monday eh? : )

London Zoo!

So yesterday, myself & the boy went to London Zoo.
We took so many photos, these are some of my favourites - obviously the giraffes were the highlight of my day! Sadly, the only animal we didn't get to see which I was excited about was the tigers. We did however get to see the seahorses & the new silver-backed gorilla who just sat there chilling & watching everyone snapping away at him, so adorable.
Have you guys been to London Zoo?

OOTD - Spot Me


Dress - Primark / Shoes - Primark / Tights - Tesco / Sunglasses - Primark / Accessories - Links of London & Primark rings / Nails - Barry M & Models Own

A typical Summer outfit post!
I had to make the most of the sunshine even though my hair looks a complete mess & I forgot to suck in my pot belly in all the photos..
I bought this dress last Summer - I absolutely adore the polka dot print (yes my nails do match, complete coincidence I have to say!) but polka dots are my obsession at the moment.
I'm so excited about this week, myself & James are going to London Zoo on Thursday, fingers crossed it doesn't rain! I can't wait to see all the animals, especially the giraffes!
Remember to follow me on Instagram if you want to see the cute animal pictures I'll be posting!
Hope you're all well lovelies.

Ok, so first things first. My boy is officially back in the UK! Yay! He's actually been back for almost a week now & we've mostly spent the time catching up, eating out & chilling in the garden as the weather has been so lovely. He's tanned, has a lion bite on his arm, scratches on his leg & is still scared of spiders but I'm so pleased he's back! : D
The weather has actually been so beautiful these past few days, I'm hating the fact I have to go to work in a big glass oven & watch people outside! BUT, planning a holiday very soon with the girls & the boy. Too excited.
How has your week been?

Recent Nail Art #4

NYC - Mint Macaroon & L'Oreal - Confetti

Confetti is one of my favourite topcoats at the moment. It's so beautiful & goes on top of any base colour & makes it look stunning. I get so many compliments & questions about it, it really is such a unique polish to have. 

Barry M - Peach Melba & Models Own Nail Art Pen - White

Ah, yet again more polka dots & seeing as it's Spring, pastel polka dots! This shade by Barry M was massive last year & I think it'll stay a statement polish for this year too. Adding the polka dots just makes it more feminine & cute.

Accessorize (no name!) & Models Own - Ibiza Mix

This was such a random combination, I wasn't sure whether to include it in this post as I only kept it on for a couple of days! Ibiza Mix is such a pain to get off, despite being so pretty! What colour do you use as a base coat to style multi-coloured glitters?

Jessica - Sky High
And finally my current nails. Last Christmas, my boyfriend bought me a voucher for a classic manicure at a local beauty salon. I'd been saving it up for Spring so I went in last Thursday & got my hands & fingers totally pampered for 45 minutes. I can't rave about this shade enough, it's beautiful. I obviously have blues in my nail polish collection, but none like this. It's an absolutely gorgeous pastel blue & so far I've only had a slight chip on one index finger. I've been trying to preserve it as much as I can so the boy can see it now he's back from Africa!
