A Blogger's Bookshelf: Black Beauty

So many B's this week!
At the moment, I am currently reading... Black Beauty by Anna Sewell
It's a book which I got for free on my Kindle, because it's a little old. I decided to start reading it because I absolutely love the film, and I thought the book would be really interesting and have that emotional connection from the beginning that would draw my attention right in.

Fridail: American as Apple Pie!

Hi there! Welcome to the "Fridail" post! Though yes, it is Saturday today...
Things have been rather busy this week, so apologies for the lateness, but it was well worth it I promise!
Today I bring to you a new red polish, and it is definitely at the top of my list of all-time polishes! So which polish is it?
It's a Nicole by OPI polish, from the Carrie Underwood collection, and it's called...
American as Apple Pie Dang, it's making me hungry! What an adorable name though, I love it!

Wail: Barry M Aquarium Polishes!

Welcome to the Wail! It's Wednesday, (wow, so many W's already), and you know what that means- it's time for a nail post! *cue cheering*
Quick warning here that I genuinely couldn't decide which pictures to scrap for this post, so I put them all in. I apologise in advance to your internet providers and anyone else trying to use the internet at the same time!

Today I'm going to share four of my newest polishes to my collection... These four are, as you may have guessed, from Barry M's new Aquarium collection! I am genuinely in love with the polishes- they're so beautiful!

A Blogger's Bookshelf: eBook Vs. Book-Book!

First of all, I'd like to take a quick moment of this post to thank you all, because views in the past 4 days or so have been pretty dang high! So let's keep them that way!
This is the first of a new series- "A Blogger's Bookshelf"- where, you guessed it, I'm going to go here and blab on and on about books, and probably anything related to them that I just feel the need to spill out!
To kick it off, I'm gonna attempt to tackle what seems to have become a very sensitive debate...
The eBook vs. the Paperback I'm even going to try and be unbiased! Although, saying that, every time I refer to an 'eBook' here, I'm most likely mentioning it in a Kindle point-of-view, simply because they're the most popular eReader, and it's the only kind I've ever owned. So, let's just change the title here.... Kindle vs. Paperback There, isn't that better? So, let's get on with it, shall we? :) (Also please note that when I say Paperback…

Fridail: Barry M New Gelly's!

Hey there!
Thanks for stopping by ^^ Welcome to the Fridail post- this week I've swatched up two of the new Barry M Gelly's for you!
For those of you who may not have heard, Barry M released 3 new Gelly shades- all pastel colours, of blue, green and pink. They're nearly so pastel that they're an off-white. Nearly...

Wail: Models Own Hypergel "Blue Glint"

Hello hello, good day to you! :)
Welcome to the first ever on-purpose Wednesday Nail post! Freshly nicknamed as... The Wail!

Today's Wail features Models Own's Hypergel in the shade "Blue Glint"!
For those of you who don't know, the Hypergel polishes are fairly new polishes by Models Own, being released in February 2014, and they're polishes which produce a 'Gel' effect... Without the use of UV lamps. (Kinda similar to the Barry M Gelly's, but we'll get onto that in a sec)

The colour I went for initially was Red Lustre but I lucked out by a couple of minutes and it had sold out on the Models Own site just before I went to buy it. *sniffles*
So, instead, I went for the blue, cause you can never have too many blues!

I am... In Love With Books!

I know it's not Monday, but I got a bit caught up in life and homework til quite late, so you're stuck with the post today!
This will also be the last post in the "I am..." series, as I'm kinda running out of interesting things to say... (It made me realise how dull my life is though!)
Today's post is actually very fitting, as the book theme is going to continue throughout the Monday-Posts! From next Monday, there will be either a book/series recommendation, book review or "What I'm Reading Right Now" post! You may have also noticed the little addition of the Goodreads widget to my blog-so you can keep up to date with what I'm reading even if it isn't featured in a post.

Fridail: Models Own Beetlejuice Purple-Blue!

Hey guys!
It's finally Friday! You know what that means? It's the weekend, and more importantly...
It's a nail post! Wahoo!

This weeks Fridail post is featuring Models Own's Beetlejuice in the shade Purple-Blue!
Hope you enjoy the post, and don't forget to leave a comment below (and make sure you're following me on all the social media links to your right!)

I am... a Baker!

(Or... at least, I'd LIKE to be!) Baking is one of those really calming outlets for me- it's a great way to take out any frustration, or to do when you're bored (and you get some yummy food at the end, which is always a bonus!)

So, from baker to reader, I'm going to share some scrummy little images to you, and then depending on the popularity of this post, maybe a recipe some time in the future too! :)

Now, I am a sucker for Cinnamon Rolls- you just can't beat 'em! Especially when they're still warm, and have that crisp outside with the soft, flakey inside *drools*
Lemme show you what I got ahold of last week...

A Night at the Oscars...

Hello everyone!  Well, it's been quite a long time since I've written... (again!)- Life just keeps catching up with me unfortunately!


As you all probably know, it was the Oscar Awards last Sunday, and wow- what a mixture of outfits, nails and surprises (I bet that pizza delivery guy had an awesome time!)
