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!

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 …
