1. Cheers! A nice cool Ginger Ale. Lunching with Mamma Smith, it would be rude not too!

2. Couldn’t resist these MAC purchases. Been wanting these two products for a while, Paint Pot in Chilled on Ice and a 266 angled brush.

3. Sleek blusher in Rose Gold. Such a pretty product. I have been using this blush non stop since buying. 

4. I already own a Sleek eye shadow palette in Au Naturel and use it a lot. The new one in this pic is called Storm. Pigmented, easy to blend with a pocket friendly price. Winner. Doncaster Superdrug please start stocking Sleek!

5. This week I was very impressed when the new A/W issue of ASOS Magazine fell through the letter box. A fabulous little read.

6. My friend Terri and I were bonding until this happened. I’m team Costa, Terri team Starbucks. We can no longer be friends! 

7. Spent a lovely day this week with my two nephews, a trip to the Yorkshire Wildlife Park then bowling, I even won a game!

Instagram Diary & A Quick Note…

Hi guys!

It’s been a while hasn’t it? Lately the time seems to have run away from me and whenever I’ve sat down to write a post I’ve either hit a literary wall (literary, not literal, ouch!) or I have been distracted by something else. I know, bad blogger. But I am happy to report that I’m working on a post that should be up at some point during the week. 

Also, this Instagram Diary contains pics from the last two weeks as I tried to post up last Sunday but for some reason my WordPress account was acting all kinds of hell crazy and barred me from posting on my own blog. Rude. 

Anyway, enjoy and keep your eye on the fresh post popping up on here soon. 

mosaic5d3e889f4cd11e8d76eca311d08db634d40fa6c9

1. MAC Candy Yum Yum. Have been coveting this for WEEKS and had to order online in the end. £14. 

2. Had my hair did. If only it would look like that without me having to do anything.

3. New Ralph Lauren specs. It’s scandalous that it costs an absolute fortune to not be blind.

4. Longest plate ever. Surely you get shorter runways.

5. So I figure it’s like this: there are 365 days in a year and in this country only about 9 of them will be sunny so you have to eat the McFlurries while you can.

6. Since the glasses cost a small fortune I better wear this pair.

7. Stop the press! A latte that wasn’t from Costa that I actually enjoyed. Shock face :-O 

8. In my opinion stupidly expensive for a lipstick but it had to be done at least once. Estee Lauder Crystal Honey.

9. New Jumper. Wallis.

10. Bunnies! Sunny day at Clumber Park.

11. Hoop earrings. River Island. I checked that I didn’t look like Tina McIntyre or a big fat gypsy bride before purchasing. 

12. Phone’s new outfit.

13. Oh hi pink lips! 

14. I have discovered the Illamasqua counter in Meadowhall. God help us all, but mostly me. 

15. Bright leopard print nails. Combination of Topshop, Illamasqua, Essie & Models Own polishes.

Have a happy week.

1. The nails I painted with my Barry M Gelly nail paint (in the colour Papaya) and nail art glitter. Just to report, the glitter went EVERYWHERE. I spent the majority of my time trying to get the excess glitter back into the bottle.

2. Spring has finally sprung this week thanks to the lovely sunny weather. I hope you’ve seen the sun wherever you are, long may it continue!

3. Topshop Lips in Macaroon. I’ve been wanting a coral lip colour for spring/summer and this is perfect for me. More on the pinky side than the orange. 

4.Costa belgian chocolate and praline tart. Apparently these are new so I just had to try them out. 

5. Treated myself to some new perfume. Marc Jacobs Daisy Sunshine. Smells divine!

6. Models Own Artstix nail beads in Pink Neon Fizz. Available in the Bottle Shop, on the website and in Boots stores.

7. Lunch out, Hunters Chicken and chunky seasoned chips. Delish.

8. Giant Bakewell Tart. Bigger is better.

9. Much needed Costa.

10. Couldn’t wait to try out the nail beads. These nails are entirely Models Own. Pink Lady & Snow White polishes with the accent nail covered in the Pink Fizz beads. I love. 

11. That painful moment you learn an important lesson; shaving your legs is a dangerous business. Ladies can I get an ‘Mmhmmm’? 

12. What I wore today to a friends baby’s christening. Topshop dress and blazer (& shoes) and an ASOS belt.

Instagram Diary: Week In Pictures

1. Pizza. Some times you just can’t beat a good cheesy pizza.

2. Mother Nature has been one confused lady this week. In just one day we had blinding sunshine, a full on blizzard, rain, hail and gale force winds. But no rainbows. Mother Nature where are all the rainbows?

3. With this lovely soft fresh bedding it’s a been a struggle to vacate my bed each morning.

4. This week I sampled the new Mocha Latte at Costa. Hot chocolate and coffee in the same cup. Just another thing for me to become addicted to.

5. Couldn’t resist the pull of the Bueno bar this week. I just love Bueno’s. I’ll be good next week, promise.

6. Leopard print nails using all Models Own polishes, Gold Rush, Bronze Rage, Disco Heaven and the black Models Own nail pen.

7. My ticket to see The Script at Sheffield arena. Wasn’t able to go last time they toured due to the gorgeous metal cage fixed to my leg. Was beyond excited to finally see them live.

8. As you can see we were right at the back but loved it regardless. This was The Script’s glitter finale to Hall Of Fame. I can also confirm beyond all reasonable doubt that Danny O’Donoghue is a total babe.

9. This picture speaks for itself. Customary cake shot.

10. I get all giddy when new books arrive from Amazon. This batch consists of Rachel Joyce’s The Unlikely Pilgrimage Of Harold Fry, Hannah Richell’s The Secrets Of The Tides and Kate Atkinson’s Life After Life. Can’t wait to get stuck in.

11.‘No actual Malteaser’s were hurt during the making of this bunny.’ I was glad to read this on the back of the Malteaser Bunny packet as I’ve been worrying for a while now.

12. New sparkly phone case. River Island £8. Comes with the added bonus of covering your hands in glitter every time you touch it.

1. Glitter fade nails. Really impressed with this polish, chip free after a week and still going strong. Essie Fiji.

2. Loving this Topshop glitter in Bowl Me Over, large and small particles of pink, purple and silver glitter.

3. Favourite KitKat Chunky by far is this hazelnut bad boy.

4. Who could resist these mini Cherry Bakewells? Soooo cuuuuute! 

5. Brrr it got a bit cold this week. As pretty as it is can this please be the last of the snow now? 

6. Sister brought me a valentine’s cupcake. In return I brought her nothing. Oops.

7. I haven’t consumed enough vanilla lattes this week. Disappointed.

8. For a little pick-me-up read my ’15 Feel Good Things’ post

9. Baking scones with Mamma Smith. They smelt good in the oven, and tasted great! Now I want a scone…

10. My fingernails can hardly wait for these new Models Own neon polishes. Available online from 20th March and in Boots stores from 22nd. Hurry up March!

11. I love Simple skincare. With super sensitive skin I have to be careful with what I use but I wanted to start taking better care of my skin. I brought the Simple cleansing lotion, facial toner and moisturiser. So far so good. And even better, right now in Boots, Simple skin care is on a three for two promotion 🙂

12. The ‘I slept in plaits’ hair. I love this method of curling your hair as no straighteners or heat stylers are needed, this equals happy, healthy hair!
