When can I expect a post?

Hello dears!
So my life is currently back on track for the year (I think) after a little culture shock from returning to the UK and university (and being pushed right into exam season- woops)!
In order to live life to the fullest this year, I'm planning to learn Spanish, do some super healthy eating and exercise (check on the latter- I have two fitness DVDs ready and waiting to be used), save some money, aim for the stars, and maybe even try and get a job to draw in a bit of extra cash!

Exam season for me is finished as of today, so I'm popping home for a few days to spend some guilt-free time with people, and then it's back to lectures and the exciting things that lie ahead of me this semester.

But anyway... When can you expect a post!? 
Well, I have plenty to blab about and snap pics of to share with you so I'm going to continue with the Monday, Wednesday, Friday sequence I had going on last year! If anything changes (such as, I get a job that takes up a lot of my time), I'll be the first to make you all aware of course.
You can make sure you're catching the posts you want to catch by checking the "coming soon" sections underneath the signature of each post!

There'll be no post tomorrow as I'm travelling home without my laptop for the weekend- so see you on Monday!

Oh! By the way! The polish list has been updated with what I now have at Uni- if you want any swatches, let me know- just drop me a tweet, facebook post, instagram message, comment, email (anything really)- and I shall get right to it!

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 …

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).

Swatch Watch: Barry M Gelly 'Papaya'

Greetings folks,

Today's featured polish is one of my top picks for Summer pretty much every year. It's a Barry M Gelly polish, which I summarised all of the colours for (at the time) a few years back. You can check that post out here if you want to see the awesome variation of colours!

Papaya, however, is I think the first of the Gelly polishes I picked out. It's a pinky-orange/peach colour (wow, great describing skills, I know), that seems perfect for cocktails and beach-style weather. That weather is also known as Summer in most countries (and occasionally the UK). Of course, it has the beautiful gel-like shiny finish with it, which can be enhanced with a shiny topcoat, or even a gel-style topcoat if you want to go all out!

Most images in this post were taken with flash to try and capture the true colour of the polish. In some lights it looks more orange than peach, but I feel that all the images here show the true colour it appears in a few different light settings.
