Friday Fly-day!

Hey everyone!
Today's just a quick little post to give you a bit of a tour, kinda, not that there's that much to see...

First of all I'd like to point out our lovely new colour scheme- blueeeeee! I love blue so much!
You can also see that we have some lovely new font going on, which is awesome, I hope you like it better than the last one and are maybe finding it a bit easier to read.
Though, they're very small things, so I'd like you to all scroll up a little bit to the top of the page...
Did you see the new banner? Did you? DID YOU!? (If you didn't, then go and look again!)

This lovely new banner was done by a dear friend of mine, and she also did an amazing job with some post dividers (scroll down a little!) and a logo to use on Facebook and Twitter (check out the links below!). You can find her Facebook page *here*, her Tumblr *here* and she also has a really cool comic, called Cottonstar, which can be found *here* 
So a very very very big thank you to her! Go and commission her for some art work :P

And so, I should bid you farewell my dears, for I'm going on holiday! I'm leaving you in the capable hands of two guest bloggers, and I will also try and pop on to share some holiday selfies with you while you have the back-to-school/work blues. :P

I'm also moving to Uni when I get back, so there will probably not be another proper post from me until Wednesday the 17th of September! I'll see you then!


  1. I absolutely LOVE your new banner, it is super-cute!

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 …
