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. New Topshop polishes. A simple white (Spilled Milk) and a new glitter they got in this week (Magpie.)

2. Chocolate and stars all in the same bag?! Perfect!

3. Couldn’t resist this Fashion book bible. Total bargain, the history of fashion and costume all in one place with some beautiful pictures to accompany it.

4. Shiny pink windmill to twirl in the breeze = happy garden 🙂

5. Chocolate and honeycomb ice cream sundae. Cheeky treat after lunch with a friend. Sooo nice!

6. Wasn’t sure what I’d make of this Barry M Gelly shade in Greenberry but I LOVE it! So bright and summery, I teamed it with a glittery accent nail in my new Topshop Magpie polish.

7. Can’t be arced to make tea? Get a pizza in! Chicken BBQ is a fave.

8. I love a MAC purchase, been after these two for ages. Woodwinked eyeshadow and Creme Cup lipstick.

9. Katsu Curry lunch at Rice with Mamma Smith.

10. Todays Make up face.

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.
