A month of Instagram: January.

I'm pretty much constantly attatched to my iphone. I used to use Hipstamatic to take photos but I have been addicted to Instagram lately. I thought I might share my month's favourites at the end of each month.

And my nails...

If you want to know the details of where anything is from, clicking on the photo will take you to the flickr page where there is usually a description! All nails were done using Models Own brand polish and pens.

I don't cha cha or dance with the stars.

Hello! I got a comment a while ago asking me if I ever wear jeans. I rarely do, I just have this one pair. I tend to find skirts and dresses more comfortable, but if I really want to lounge around this is generally what I wear! I love the top, I wear it all the time. I'm actually considering buying another as a spare in case I ruin this one - is that mad?

So yes, this is my casual wear I suppose. I usually pin my fringe back so it won't get in my face and annoy me, and yes I am a glasses wearer! My eyesight just keeps getting worse and worse so I really need them.

Necklace- Topshop

I got this dress a few days ago from Primark in the sale. I never even bother looking at the sale racks in Primark because they're always a mess but this caught my eye, and luckily the only one left was in my size. It was £5 down from £12, bargain! I hate sleeveless things so I wore this over a black top. I love it. The necklace is new, I couldn't resist it!

And I also wanted to share a song by Scottish singer Emma's Imagination that hasn't left my playlist for the last week. It's beautiful. Edit: Just got told it's a cover, originally by Bic Runga! Thanks rainbowstripe.

500 followers giveaway! Models Own polishes.

126/365 | Nails.

Hello all! I have been meaning to post this for ages but my order went missing in the post, however thanks to the wonderful customer service at Models Own here I am with a giveaway for you to celebrate me reaching 500 followers!

Models Own

I am a nail polish fiend as you may know from reading my blog, and my favourite brand is definitely Models Own. Their nail polishes come in a stunning range of colours and are amazing quality and coverage. They're £5 a bottle but they have deals on their website that save you money if you buy three or six, and they're well worth the price.
