New Camera: Advice Please!

Hey girls,

I'm on the hunt for a new camera and have no idea where to start, so I thought I'd ask all you lovelies for some advice :)
I had the Samsung Digimax A503 for ages but it stopped working recently whilst I was on holiday. The worst timing of course! Since then I've been using my mum's camera, but obviously I need to get my own. Especially since I have lots to blog about and I'm going on holiday soon (well not till August but the prospect of holiday is the only thing getting me through! lol)

(Image - Google)

So I was wondering if any of you had any recommendations. I'm looking for a compact camera with movie function and most importantly it has to be under £150! It doesn't have to be fancy, just a good camera.

Thanks in advance! xo

Nail Polish Collection!

Hey guys!

I've seen a few people show us their nail polish collection, so since I had a mahoosive clear out yesterday I thought I'd show you mine! Actually most of them are my mum's, but we share them so it's all good haha!
It's a bit hard to see the exact shades from the pictures, so if you want to know more just ask :)

Hope everyone's having a lovely weekend! xo

OOTD: Summer is Hereee!!

Hi girls!
Well I'm really happy because the weather in England has been absolutely beautiful these past few days. Summer is without doubt my favourite season, and I'm so excited to be able to wear some summer clothes now! Last night I had a BBQ with my family, and here's what I wore :)

Top - Topshop
Skirt - T K Maxx
Sandals - New Look

I just thought I'd show you a quick pic of my nail polish (sorry about my weird feet haha). It's Rimmel Sky High (825) which I picked up recently in Boots on special offer for only £2.25!

I hope you all enjoy the wonderful weather while it lasts.
I have a week full of exams, so probably won't be posting again but have a good week everyone! xo

Cheap Cosmetics & Website Rave

Hi girlies :)

I'm so excited to share with you a beauty website I came across over the weekend. FragranceDirect sells dirt cheap cosmetics, hair products and perfumes. Delivery to the UK is only £1.95 and my order came within 2 working days!
I just bought a few things for my first order, because I'm always wary of cheap websites which may not deliver your items. Here's what I got...

Rimmel Lasting Finish - Black Cherries £0.59 (RRP £2.99)
Maybelline Pure Blush Mineral - Plum Alchemy £1.99 (RRP £6.99)
Bourjois Eau de Gloss- Rose Vitamine £0.99 (RRP £7.99) *my only complaint about this product is that by taking the packaging off a bit of the writing rubbed off, not a big deal though!*

St. Moriz Self Tanning Mousse £2.99 (RRP £15) *I've never self tanned before, so will let you know how this goes!*

Veet Sensitive Skin Hair Removal Cream £1.99 (RRP £6.29) *I regularly buy this but have never seen it this cheap.*

Covet by Sarah Jessica Parker £7.99 (RRP £29)

So overall I'm really impressed with this company. The delivery, quality and prices are excellent. I definitely recommend you take a look....check it out here!

Enjoy! xo

OOTD: Inspired by Audrey Hepburn

Hi guys,
I hope you're having a wonderful weekend. The sun is finally shining in the UK, although it's a bit chilly! I wanted to show you my OOTD from last week which was inspired by the beautiful Audrey Hepburn. Along with tons of other girls, Audrey is a big style icon for me. Her style was so classy, chic and casual (the three C's!). So here's my take on one of her famous looks, the cigarette pants.

Top - H&M
Trousers - Zara
Shoes - M&S

And here are a couple of images (from Google) which gave me some inspiration.

Enjoy! xo

Prom Dress Dilemma!

Hi guys,

A while ago I told you about my prom which will be in June, and I also told you that I'd bought a prom dress. However, I tried it on again recently and just wasn't feeling it, so ordered another one online. Now I love the shape of the dress, but I'm not entirely sure if the colour suits me because I was going to go for something brighter. Anyway, I thought I'd show you the two and you can let me know which one you prefer. I know the pictures aren't great, but I hope you see what they're like. And please be honest when you let me know which one you like (or neither!).

Please comment below what you think! xo

10 Things About Mee

So I was tagged by the lovely aamberr to do this post. Here's what I got to do....

Write 10 things about yourself & life.
Give a final comment about life.
And tag 5 people who’s blog you love reading.

1) I have one week left at school before I go on exam leave for GCSEs. I’m moving school for 6th form so this week is gonna be bitter sweet! :’)

2) I want to live in Italy one day. The culture, the language, the way of life, the weather and the food are amazing...not to mention the hot guys! haha

3) I’m an only child. I have a great relationship with both my parents, but I’m not spoiled!

4) I’m a tidy freak....I can’t work or get anything done if my room or work space is a mess! And if I see a piece of paper on the floor, I instinctively have to pick it up! lol

5) I was born in London...I often wonder how friends, school and life would be different if we had stayed! haha

6) I can’t wait for Summer 2010. My last exam finishes on 21st June and I have a looong 3 months where I have absolutely nothing to do!! :)

7) I’ve never broken a bone in my body and would like it to stay that way! However, I sort of broke my friend’s nose...we were playing duck duck goose and I got up so quickly that she bashed her nose on my head!! Lol.

8) I love to eat. Lol

9) I’m a big town/city girl. I could never live in the countryside...I think it’s beautiful to visit but would drive me insane with nothing to do!

10) I’m currently searching for summer jobs - I’ve applied to 6 places and only heard back from one which was a no anyway :(

So at the moment my life is kinda stressful with exams and stuff but I’m determined to have fun along the way! :)

And here's who I tag:

Enjoy! xo

NOTD & Coral Obsession

Hi guys,

I popped into town yesterday at lunchtime with my friend and used my "£5 off No.7" to buy this lurvely nail polish. It was £6.75 so I actually only paid £1.75!! Ooh I do love a bargain haha.
I love the No.7 nail polishes as I think they're good value, and easy to apply. The colours always come out really nice and often only need 1-2 light coats.

So here's the colour I bought - Fuschia Daze 46. It's a corally pink colour and perfect for this time of year!

I have to admit that I have a bit of a thing for coral and orange nail polishes! I think they're lovely to wear in the Spring/Summer and look nice for my skin tone. Here's the coral nail polishes I own....

17 Firecracker
No.7 Fuschia Daze
No.7 50704 (don't have a name sorry!)
17 Tropical Island

What nail colour are you obsessed with at the moment?

Enjoy the weekend! xo

Another Haul!

Hi guys,

I went shopping yesterday because I got my May allowance, and however hard I try to save my money there are some things I simply can't resist! lol.
Here's what I bought:

First I got these cute sandals from New Look for £10 (reduced from £16). I don't currently have a pair of black sandals, so hopefully these will be useful when Summer comes!

Then I went to Primark and bought the bikini for £7, flip flops for £1.50 (!) and headband for £1. They also had the headband in purple and I was really stuck which one to buy, I thought gold was better for darker hair but I think I'll be popping back to get it in purple too.

Also, I'm going to show you my prom dress in a post later I promise!

Hope you all enjoy the long weekend (for those in the UK!) xo
