A Blogger's Bookshelf: Allegiant Part 1!

Hey guys!
Welcome to the first part of the Allegiant review!
The only reason this has been split into parts is because I've done a fair bit of work this week and haven't been reading so much, I think I'm on Chapter 19 or something (out of like, 50 I think...)

So this book starts exactly where Insurgent left off, but this time it's from both Tobias' and Tris' perspectives, which is pretty cool actually. It works well, especially a few chapters into the book.
It's actually very nice to have Tobias' perspective of everything and Veronica has used this to her full advantage in Chapter 2, describing his love for Tris and everything that makes him smile about her, as well as giving an insight to how he sees situations. (Seriously guys, cuteness alert- go grab those tissues!)
From the first few chapters, it was pretty easy to see where everything was going- the "Allegiant" are a group formed of characters you'll recognise from the past two books and get a good, gripping introduction here.
There's also a new location which had a nice smooth transition from the old one, yet had it's own shocking little twists involved in it too, which is pretty typical for these books! (In a good way!)
Basically, most of the important characters are in this new environment, and the story is plodding nicely along in its development right now and I have absolutely no idea what it's going to lead to, so I won't try and guess here.

Tune in next week for the second (and hopefully final) part of the review, but so far, so good, I'm enjoying it loads!

Swatch Watch: OPI 'Sprung'


Wooo time got away from me for a couple of weeks. Has it really been so long already? My apologies to any of you who have been eagerly waiting for new swatches (I know I have)! To make it up to you I've got a swatch for you today which, in my opinion, is pretty "in season" right now. I'm talking about the Rose Gold trend that's been going on for a year or two now - who would of known it would become so popular?

Today's nail polish is: OPI 'Sprung'. It sounds like it should be a spring green kinda colour... but nope! This polish is a beautiful rose-gold kind of colour with a perfect amount of shimmer to be classy and sophisticated. Don't believe me? Here it is!

Fact File:
Brand: OPI
Polish Name: Sprung
# of coats: 3 + (applies quite thin)
Finishing Texture: Smooth, shimmer
Cost: £3.10 at the time of writing, on

So I paired this polish with this gel-finish dotty topcoat... thing. That sadly, has no name, and was bought by my roommate…

Avril "Mille et une nuits" #32*

Hello folks!

How are you all doing? How am I doing? Where am I? Who am I? So many questions...

To answer a few... I hope you are doing fine.
Yes, I am fine thank you.
I am in England, once again. For a long while this time.
I am Rachel, as always. And I have been missing from the blogging world for a couple of months.

The past 2 weeks I have spent job-searching (with success, yay!), catching up on Suits, and binge-watching Scandal. I want you all to go and do some homework and watch Scandal so I have somebody to talk to about it. Seriously.

Anyway, a few months ago I was lucky enough to be contacted by Avril - a french beauty brand which pride themselves on not testing on animals, and ensuring any of the ingredients used are also not tested on our furry friends. I highly respect this, and think that all companies should follow their …

I'm writing this whilst listening to the General Election results. I'm not going to get into politics here though, this is a safe politics-free zone!

I've been semi-missing the past few weeks, I know. Many apologies. However if you follow me on Instagram you'll have seen a couple of posts! And just in case you don't, here they are for you:

First of all actually, I had a little haul from BornPrettyStore, and bought the following stoofs:

And then did ma nails. (That's what I do here, generally after all).
