To All Ma Peeps: Much Love!

So, I 'officially' left school on Friday, despite having another 12 exams to go, plus prom and a few other little events. But still, since we've now all "left" school, I wanted to say a few words to everyone who has entered (or stayed) in my life over the past 2 years. I'd just write it in a big group message, but I feel like it's a bigger gesture if I share it with the whole World, so here I am!

If you're a complete stranger reading this, feel free to continue, but don't feel like you have to- just remember to acknowledge your friends' existence and let them know how much you appreciate their friendship, before you're forced to leave them for whatever reason.

I wanted to say mostly, thank you all. Thank you for all the little things you've done over the past two (or more!) years; thank you for sticking by me when I've needed you to; thank you for laughing with me (or at me) when it mattered most. Thank you for letting me fit in somewhere despite always being 'the weird one' who liked all the nerdy shows and would rather sit in the house with a hot chocolate and a book than go out and get 'mortal' and despite that, thank you for introducing me to the world of socialisation and alcohol and inviting me to gatherings and parties and what not. Thanks for giving me a life.

I guess most of what I'm saying here is thank you for letting me be me. Thanks for giving me the opportunity to find myself.

And I just want to let you all know, that this is not goodbye. Even though we aren't going to be seeing each other at least 5 days a week, there will never be a goodbye, cause we're friends for life, us lot. We all may move on to different Uni's and different cities, and we're all gonna make new friends, but that doesn't mean forgetting old friends, or all the fun times we had together. You guys are irreplaceable to me, so let's savour all the time we have before we add distance into the equation.

(P.S. And thank you for reading this post :P)

Your Guide to Barry M Gelly's!

Finally, the time has come for the ever-promised "Barry M Gelly Polishes Review & Swatch" Post! YAY! Now, now, settle down, settle down, and prepare yourself for an image-heavy post!

Okay, so that picture isn't too great. But there's the colours that between us (Me and Rhian) have in the Gelly range. We're only missing "Grapefruit" I think...

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*

*This post contains an item sent to me in exchange for an honest review. Here it is a nail polish by Avril, called "Mille et une nuits" - No32.

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 …
