Life Update!

Hey everyone!

Been quite a while since one of these (I think?), so I thought I'd give you the scoop on what's happening in my life right now.

The past couple of weeks have been a bit of a haze of getting ready to go back to Uni, and also a nice little 7 day all-inclusive holiday in Lanzarote, before returning back home for a couple of days.

Some thoughts and a specific Timehop app have also made me realise how things have changed in the past year (both good and bad) and how much everyone's grown up and moved on from sixth form, including myself I'd like to think... though I'm still grasping onto all the "childish" things that make me happy like Disney, and stuffed animals. I feel like these are even more important to hold onto now that I'm onto the last year of my teens.

At this very moment in time, I'm having a sick day in my PJ's in bed feeling sorry for myself and trying to get some internet-things done before I give up and just go back to …

Nail It For Rhinos!

Hey everyone!

Hope you all had a lovely week off from myself and the blog. Things are kicking off again straight away with a post which is pretty important (and includes a fun nail art tutorial), so make sure you pay attention!

As you may have guessed from the title, this post is about everyone's favourite dinosaur-looking animal, the Rhino...

Now I've been lucky enough to see Rhinos close-up in a pretty wild environment (in Pilanesberg National Park, South Africa), but not everyone will be so lucky. Poachers are often after these beautiful animals for their horns- horrible, right!? What many people don't realise is that these Rhino's horns are made from keratin- the same protein as found in your own finger nails. And yet (I hope) you don't have poachers running after you to tear those off, so why should we let such things happen to the Rhinos, which are already critically endangered, by the way.
I've teamed up with Save the Rhino and their #NailIt4Rhinos campa…

A Blogger's Bookshelf: Mr Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore

Hey peoples!

Bonus post for you today- it's about time for A Blogger's Bookshelf!

Today I have a super exciting post for you as despite it being one of my most recent reads, it's become one of my favourite books. Behold, Mr Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan.

I give it an amazingly awesome 5 Stars.

Organisation: Colour Wheels!

Hey everyone!

I re-organised my nail polish collection recently. Behold, the 340 polishes I own all swatched onto some fun colour wheels I bought from Amazon (pack of 10 for £1.50? Bar-gain!) It only took like... 2 weeks to do.


While I was swatching them, I popped them all onto my polish list spreadsheet for you, complete with an extra sheet for ones I've thrown away and my gel polishes! Yay, organisation! The wheels are lettered and numbered on the back, with a dot and arrow on the front to let me know where number 1 is and in which direction it all goes.

Metallic Blue Nail Wraps (Part 2)*

*This post contains "Metallic Blue Nail Wraps" sent from LadyQueen in exchange for an honest review. All views are 100% my own!

Hey guys!
If you missed my major fail-ness of Part 1, you can catch up with it right here!

Quick re-cap for those of you who don't wish to read it, or have read it and can't quite remember the going's on. I failed to apply some very shiny blue metallic nail wraps, and was looking for other ways to use them without getting a major bubble, crinkle or wear-down.

And so, this time round, I tried a new approach- cutting shapes and sections from the remaining of the nail wraps, and I think it worked rather well!
