Candy Nails & Sparkly Rings

Candy Nails

I put up a post a few days ago (two posts ago from this) about Elf's Mint Cream nail varnish and how I was so delighted with not just the colour but also the delivery too. I wanted to continue having it on my nails this week as I thought it was such a great spring/summer nail varnish to have on, so my twin sister Ally was ever so kindly enough to paint my nails and kind of jazz them up for me as well. I also ordered some amazing rings from a site called Rings & Tings which I'm so excited to talk about. 

                                                                              Barry M's Peach Melba

As I said before I knew I wanted to change up my nails and the new Barry M nail varnish 'Peach Melba' is fantastic. I've seen alot of blog posts recently with people doing reviews on it and everyone generally seems to agree that it's great. It's a nice pastel pink colour ready for spring/summer. 

As you can see from my pictures (sorry for the poor lighting.) I used a mixture of each colours and now keep calling them 'Candy Nails' because they just remind me of the colours of candyfloss. When applying the polish Ally used about three coats on each finger and finished them off by using Barry M's base and top coat, I've never used a base or top coat on my nails and it's honestly such a good product I'll be ordering more in the future and it totally helps it not to chip. Having just celebrated my birthday my lovely friend Sian bought me & Ally two amazing Barry M nail polishes which are 'Pink Flamingo' and 'Raspberry' I can't wait to talk about those two very soon. 

                                                 Sparkly Rings 

I've already posted about Rings & Ting's before (4 posts ago) and was so delighted to have finally ordered from their website. Delivery most definitley wasn't long at all. It was meant to take 1-5 days's to arrive and arrived on the first day which I was pleasantly pleased with. I'm honestly so pleased with my rings BUT the only thing I have to say is that I was super gutted I didn't check my ring size before ordering because some of the rings were too small on my fingers. 

LUCKILY all the rings do fit somewhere on my fingers and I kind of tried to make like a knuckle ring and I personally love it. I know I will be ordering from their website again and they don't just do jewellery but they do clothing & bags too. I think you should all order from them AND make sure you check your ring size before purchasing any rings.                                                                              


Daisy Does & a 10% discount

by , in

Sticking to my LOVE for online jewellery stores, I've come across another one called Daisy Does. Everything on the site is absolutely beautiful and unique. Sticking to what I've previously said when talking about jewellery, I love pieces that really stand out  and represent what kind of a person you want to be known as and I definitely couldn't agree more that this website is perfect if that's what you're trying to achieve. Everything on the site varies from £8.00 upwards which is such a bargain. 

This is one of my favourite bracelets that I saw off the site. Daisy Does is actually inspired by Paris so I thought the idea of this bracelet is excellent. I also love Paris, muffins and tea so I think this would be a great purchase for me. 

Tea In Paris bracelet -

There's a section on the website called 'Daisy Sparkle' which is honestly so beautiful and even though it's quite pricey I think it's so worth it. It's got white, pink and gold rhinestones on it and ends with a crown charm to add to the finishing touches. 

Princess Sparkle bracelet - 

The final thing I really loved was this necklace off the site. There's nothing better than a necklace that makes the biggest STATEMENT. Sticking with my Paris theme it includes charms with the Eiffel tower, a poodle and says 'Je t'aime' on it. The price for this is also a bargain. 

Paris chic necklace -

The lovely Daisy the creator of Daisy Does has given me a discount for any readers. Definitely have a look on the website http://www.daisydoes.net/store/ and if you do make a purchase (DO IT) enter the discount code "VAZ2012" for a 10% discount on your order.  

What do YOU think about Daisy Does?

If you do order anything let me know or if you've just got a general question comment down below and I'll get back to you.

                                       Elf - Mint Cream
Over the past few weeks I've watched what seems like thousands of collection hauls and reviews of different products, through watching all of these videos one name that came up quite alot was ELF cosmetics so on Wednesday night I decided to order some nail polish from them AND can I just say how cheap it is on their site, everything ranges from £1.50 + I was originally looking for a teal colour but unfortunately they were all sold out so I ordered a nice Minty green colour. Delivery takes between 1-5 days and my order came on the first day so I was very pleased with that. 

My package came today, the boxing is so exciting and big for such a little bottle of nail polish. 

The colour is fantastically beautiful. I can't express how much I'm in love with it and I got so much comments today from people telling me they loved the colour. I would honestly recommend Elf to anyone because you can't ask for anything better, delivery is fast and it's super cheap.  

I chose this colour because it was sort of the next colour to Teal. I know pastel colours will definitely be in this summer so I know I'll be ordering not just this colour again but many others.  

Make sure you check out their website and make a purchase. http://www.eyeslipsface.co.uk/ < Also, check out their website this weekend as they're doing free standard delivery and shipping on orders over £10 with the code "POPSHIPUK

Have a great weekend, Vanese

On one of my other posts I got a comment asking if I'd checked out Rings & Tings. I'd never heard of it but after a quick Google search I was starring at a site of pure beauty.

I've just ordered these five beautiful black crystal rings and I cannot wait for them to be delivered. As soon as they arrive I'll be back on the blogging and telling you just how amazing they fit. ;)

Birthday Haul!

by , in
As some of you may know, today (Monday March
19th) is mine and my twin sister Ally's 17th birthday, we went out for a birthday meal on Friday 16th at Nandos and we are so thankful to have celebrated it with some amazing friends and even others who couldn't make it still made it such a special night for us. Here is a little haul of the gifts and amazing cards we got from some friends. (Ps. I'm sorry for the poor quality camera the
pictures were taken from.)

The first thing I got were these two amazing bracelets from my amazing friend Raffaella, the first one is a white double row bracelet with a sort of rope material, it's so comfortable and will just generally look good with whatever outfit you pair it with. The second thing I got was this charm bracelet, I adore it so much because I was going to get one a few weeks back but didn't and I'm so glad I didn't because this one is so adorable, the charm is of a little poodle and I'm so excited to start collecting more charms and filling up. I just had to put the gift bag on here too, yellow is one of my all time favourite colours and its just so cute, I love my card too as 'cuppiecake' is my nickname from Raffaella and the card just matches my nickname.
Thank you Raffaella. x

Next I got a goody bag filled with amazing gifts from my lovely friend Jules, I love the detailing on the gift bag, the stars just give it that little cute touch. I thought the card Jules got me was HILARIOUS.. My sister Ally got the cutest card with a kitten on the front and I get a monkey.. (I know right, what is she implying? HA) the inside was great too, lots of pictures of monkeys all over the place. I'm more of a person for showers but from time to time do love a good bath and doing nothing better than relaxing, so the Radox was so well needed.. I honestly cannot wait try it out. She also added incense sticks which are so great for
giving your house that homely feel, I've already tried one out and I've got to say it ruled so much. Before it even hit my birthday I'd been banging on about how I was craving chocolate, I was lucky enough to be treated to two bars of Lindt and I've got to say they were fab. After clearly being treated ever so kindly, I was STILL treated to even more chocolate and sweets, unfortunately for my sister who is a veggie she can't eat those sweets so I get to scoff my face with these bad boys (Not that I was complaining.)
Thank you Jules. x

I was very pleased with what my really good friend Sarah got me. Something that I loved was that the card hadn't been filled out yet but me and Ally told Sarah not to fill it out because there was something so special about the card being blank, I know that'll probably sound really weird but it's like just her being there and a blank card really made it even more special. I also loved the bottle of wine we were treated to, only being 17 I'm not exactly a big drinker and I only drink alcohol really on special occasions, obviously being my birthday It was such a great touch and was so tasteful.
Thank you Sarah. x

One of my best friends Katia got me some beautiful little bits. The design on the gift bag is so adorable, I think it's a Me To You Bear (not quite sure) but all I know is it's super cute. She didn't even ask what my favourite colour was and yet she still got it right (even though that's what best friends should know already) I love how the bracelet and earrings match together and the purple is just perfect. I can't wait for a special occasion to come up where I'll be wearing these beautiful accessories.
Thank you Katia. x

I was so grateful for the amazing cards I received from my friends Emily, Dominic & Sian. I loved the first one because the little rabbit on the front is adorable and not only that upon opening up the card a little message written from Emily dropped out, the things written are such personal memories to the both of us and that was honestly better than anything else she could of got me and it's something I know I'll treasure forever. My second card was from my lovely friend Dominic, the card had two of my favourite colours on it purple and pink and the message inside was so great, what made it better is that I hadn't seen him in ages so it was amazing. My final card was from my spine tingling funny friend Sian, the detail on the front with butterflies was so beautiful, it reminded The Wanted's single 'Gold Forever' which is both our favourite band and I'm not even sure if she intended to pick it up for that reason, one of the best cards I've ever received. I was lucky enough to also be sent a free chicken cheque from Nandos (they're such a lovely team of people) I can't wait for me and Ally to head down to Nandos and claim it and I'm sure it'll be super tasty.

I just want to say thank you to my amazing friends + family for me & Ally's gift's and money. I've also got a few more presents to post about and I've done some birthday shopping and I'm still in the process of buying lots of new things, so expect to see more weekly posts from me.

Chelsea Doll

by , in

When coming to pick my accessories I was going to just pick a handful from different sites but once on my favourite site I just couldn’t pick from anywhere else, ‘Chelsea Doll’ is an online fashion jewellery boutique which I’ve been lucky to know about for around 2 years now and they’ve honestly got the most amazing things on their site and just think anybody could literally buy things to last them the rest of their life on this site. I’ve chosen these three things because they are chic and just have this edgy look to each of them.

Inspiring outfit!

by , in
I've become quite fashion inspired this weekend, a few weeks ago I started following more bloggers, and yesterday I watched one of the bloggers videos on youtube and it was of her 'Collection Haul' for those who don't know what that is (Don't worry, I totally wasn't in the loop until yesterday) its where you make a video of the things you purchased while shopping in different shops and a 'mini collection haul' is where you buy a few things from only one shop. I've pretty much spent my weekend watching them getting inspired by the amazing clothes people own.. SO I decided that I'd make a little 'inspiration outfit' just so whenever you go shopping you can kind of know good things to buy.

This is a beautiful kind of nude shaded top, its a great
neppy vest good for spring/summer time. Its the type of top that will go with anything whether that's short, leggings and I'd recommend definitely trying it with a bodycon skirt. If you love over size tee's this top is a great pick. The cross really compliments it too.

Shop: New Look
Price: £9.99

This is one of the most amazing blazers I've seen in a long time, it’s something you could either wear to make a quite dressy outfit look a little bit casual or the other way around a dressy outfit look a bit more casual. I really love how the two bits at the front kind of like fold in together in a swirly kind of way.

Shop: New Look

Price: £24.99

Celebrity Stud Studded Bottom Duffel Tote

These bags are one of the greatest things to be made... EVER thousands of celebrity’s around the world all have these handbags; there are so many clothes to choose from so you aren’t limited. It’s a leather type material with amazing gold studs covered on the bottom. The actual bags are really quite pricey so if you don’t want to spend that much definitely go onto eBay and find a cheaper version which I’m guessing isn’t made from the same designer. I know these will definitely be big for spring/summer.

Shop: EBay

Price: £24.99

Missguided have really outdone themselves with this amazing light nude pink nail polish, this is definitely so worth the price and this isn’t just the only colour there are quite a few others to choose from. The great thing about this nail polish is you don’t need to keep coating it and you don’t need too be good at painting them either because it just gives off this really professional look. Looks great and is definitely worth the price.

Shop: Missguided

Price: £5.00
