Rome



Ok, so this trip was a while ago, well actually 10 months ago - we went in October 2014 - but hey, better late than never right? 

My lovely Johnny and I thought we deserved a long weekend somewhere lovely in Europe, and Rome immediatley jumped to the top of my list. For years and years I have longed to visit this beautiful city. I have dreamt of indulging in gorgeous Italian pizza and red wine, roaming the Vatican and exploring the Colloseum for long as I can remember. 

You might already know, but I am an avid reader and adore Dan Brown's Angels and Demons - and it was a surreal experience to walk the same streets as one of my favourite fictional characters! 



We ate gelato, drank prosecco and had one the of best pizzas of my life down a lottle cobbled side street. We explored the Trevvi Fountain - and returned back to the hotel only to find my purse missing! Luckily (or as lucky as you can be when you get mugged!) the thieving weasel discarded my luminous pink purse once he had my cash and a kind hearted waiter came across it and called our hotel, thanks to the business card I had grabbed from reception. Although we had cancelled my cards it was still nice to collect my purse and retrieve my driving license! 

The Colloseum was enormous and just bursting with history - it's hard to believe it is simply that old! We also enjoyed beautiful hot sunny weather during Our whole stay in Rome! 



We explored the vatican fresh from the plane, and although tired it was everthing I imagined it to be; we even think we spotted the Pope from afar! John and I then dined al fresco straight outside the Vatican and enjoyed a cold Peroni! 



On our final evening in Rome we spent hours wandering around the exterior of the Vatican (I adore the place, and it is beautiful by night!) and made our way down all the little streets using a huge paper map we picked up until we came to the Pantheon and had dinner directly opposite - what a view! 

I enjoyed every second spent in this beautiful city and hope that I can return again with John soon!

Nails Inc Kensington Caviar Basecoat & Topcoat Duo

Hello lovlies, I hope you all had an amazing weekend. I'm had a lazy Sunday watching The Vampire Diaries whilst being dosed up in antibiotics for an ear infection :-(

A few weeks ago I made a product suggestion to Feel Unique - my favourite website in the whole world- as I couldn't find a product I was looking for (Urban Decay) Anyhoo to my great suprise I received a lovely e-mail a couple of days ago telling me that my feedback had been chosen to win a £20 voucher - wahoo!

Immediatley I logged in and ordered this amazing duo from Nails Inc, whose products I lust after on a daily basis. My parcel arrived speedily and I can't wait to try it out :-) watch this space for my review shortly.

Much love xx

A Little Day Trip

Hey guys :-)

I don't know about you, but I get bored easily. Whilst going to the cinema/out for dinner/pub/usual stuff is fun most of the time, sometimes you want something a little different. My boyfriend and I decided to hop on a ferry to France a couple of months ago, and it was the best day out ever!

We live a couple of hours away from Dover, so a two hour drive to the ferry port at 7am is a small price to pay for a fabulous trip. Speaking of small prices, we couldn't believe that it's only a £20 return to Calais and back. That's less than a train ticket to London from my house!

We chose to leave the car at Dover and travel as foot passengers, so we took a little wheelie case to haul our good back in :-)

Did I mention the wine is super cheap? €2 a bottle sounds like a good deal to me!

Here's a little snap of our stash and a yummy lunch...

My Hair Idol

I wish I could have hair like Jen. I love her and the shiny halo of golden locks that she wears proudly. I have spent years trying to acheive her perfect colour, if anyone knows the secret do tell!

Santa I Have Been Very Good This Year So Please Bring Me...

I think I've been pretty good this year, so I think the ultimate prize on my Christmas list would be the Mulberry Bayswater. I have lusted after this bag for far too long. Definitley worth the hefty price tag I say!

A little bit of hard work does pay off!

A little bit of boredom and a streak of creativity work wonders sometimes.

A little how to for you lovelies..

Paint a basecoat on.
Choose your base colour - I chose a light shimmery colour.
Splodge on random blobs of bright colours.
Wait for it to dry - I chose this time to watch a bit of Vampire Diaries. *big smile*
Line the splodges with a black nail art pen.
Add a topcoat, glitter if you wish - and voila - gorgeous fun nails!
