A Nail Polish Invasion

I feel like Bruce from Finding Nemo. 

Bruce: Hello. My name is Bruce. 
AnchorChum: Hello, Bruce. 
Bruce: It has been three weeks since my last fish, on my honour, or may I be chopped up and made into soup. 

Its been two days since I last purchased nail varnish and then two days before that I also bought some more. I go through these stages where I get very obsessed with buying nail varnishes and have to have them all. Strange? I'm sure everyone's done it at one point!

So this post is clearly about a new nail varnish purchase that I was very excited to blog about and I thought "what a good opportunity to take some pictures and plonk them on here", plonk doesn't sound appropriate because it sounds careless, more like "I thought long and hard about this decision and decided to upload these wonderful pictures".

I don't know how or why I randomly came across the modelsown website but I did, and its 50% off all nail varnishes at the moment!! The amazing thing is that they are all 14ml pots and that's around double the size of any other nail varnishes. For £2.50 I thought it would be ridiculous to miss out on. So I got my sisters involved too and they bought a couple. 

I'll be doing a couple of swatches of the different colours once my nails have grown as they look quite shabby at the moment. It was really quick delivery as well, they came within one working day which is great for standard delivery.

Cue the pictures!

A couple are duplicates because me and my sisters bought some of the same colours. Watch out for some swatches of these six colours!

Hope you're all well x

Cue The Tumbleweed

Hi guys, yes I realise it has been quite a while and that I have indeed abandoned you...

So let me explain myself.

In general, its such a hectic year because of the fact I'm in my last year in the run up to getting into university and it has been very busy so far. From the beginning in September when I started writing on my blog, up until now. The beginning of February. There's so many things going on at the moment, not to list too many, but: school, after school sessions, work every weekend, another new job, prepping for uni interviews, prepping for uni entrance tests, driving lessons, getting closer to my driving exam, school work mounting up to my ceiling, coursework deadlines. Its definitely been a busy couple of months.

Not that any of that is an excuse, I should organise my time more wisely but that isn't how its gone down as we all know I win the award for being the biggest procrastinator on earth. 

Now to get to the nitty gritty of what I've been doing lately. As some of you may know, probably not many of you, but I've applied to enter a primary education course and that means I've been having to do a lot of things in preparation. Lots of teachers have given me advice on how to approach the process, for example, getting as much work experience under my belt as I can which is what I've been doing once a week, every afternoon. Also, my new job involves me working with children which is even more experience but means I won't be having much time to do things at the moment, such as writing on my blog and updating.

All my weeks right now consist of school, work and driving. I really suck at driving as well so I wouldn't be surprised if I was still learning by the time I've turned 66! Everyone cross your fingers and toes and anything else for good luck, I hope I pass first time or that's money down the drain (this is not likely whatsoever).

So this was just a little update and apologies for those (if any) who do read my blog. But, I do have an exciting new post to come and also I might be doing a mash up of a couple of things I've accumulated over the Christmas/New Year/sales in general in terms of clothes shopping.

Hope you're all well x
