Summer Colours

So, after trying to choose a nail colour from my vast (semi-sorted) nail polish collection I decided that it would probably be a good idea to choose my top 10 summer nail colours to share with you guys! The Revlon ones are scented and suprisingly they last for quite a while.

I picked out my favourite 10 colours but I couldn't stop myself from adding a lovely pink into the mix!

Yes, they glow!

Inglot - 07 (Techno UV coat, This colour appears clear in shade, but when the sun hits it gives of an amazing blue/purple tinge!), 971, 978
Inglot. 971 on nails

Revlon - 310 (Beach), Not-so-blueberry, 360 (Bubble Gum), 300 (Cotton Candy)
NYC Colour, Sprinkles This one is great by itself or as a top coat on another colour!

NYC Colour, Blue Bird
Rimmel, Green With Envy
You always need a yellow!

The Inglot polishes are great quality and are true to colour, depending on the time you purchase and the style, they retail from $13.60 up to $17.85. Check out their pastel collection here!
Revlon is always great, but the fact that they are scented adds that little bit extra. Although they are fairly expensive they are a great investment.
NYC colour is one of my new favourites and I picked these two up from the supermarket for around $2 each on special, normally they are about $12 or something.
The Rimmel 60 Seconds are amaazing if you are impatient when painting your nails :D

As you can probably tell, I am in love with pastels! What's your favourite summer colour?

Belated Merry Christmas + DIY

Merry Christmas, I hope everyone had a fantastic day!
I was browsing through some cute christmas crafts on cut out and keep and came across a bunch of adorable felt decorations. After popping down to the store to get some felt squares I began to get crafty and this is what I ended up with! The designs are all versions I found on the website with a little twist, there are a few with tutorials! Hopefully you can get some inspiration for next year :)

Christmas Pudding

I was really happy with how they turned out, originally some were going to be a gift but I can't bring myself to give them away ... we'll see.

Rose Garden, Earrings (DIY)

I found a bunch of old rose buds in a drawer, that were magically next to some gold earring hooks. Perfect right?! So I decided to turn them into some super cute earrings. This is extremely easy and unlike many other jewellery projects you dont need any special tools...

You only need 3 things;
1) How ever many rose buds you want to use (You can find these roses on ebay in an array of colours or even at your local $2 shop, simply search for small fabric roses, rosettes and so on.)
2) 2 earring hooks
3) Scissors

I've added a small how to, for more detail check out my project on Cut Out + Keep! (The project may take a while to be published, but have a look around the site. There are some great DIYs!)

Hopefully I'll add a good photo soon! I couldn't muster a nice face :s
Please leave a comment and I'd love to see some photos if any of you try this out!

Pretty in Pink

A while ago I decided to sign up for Betts Shoes VIP club, opening earlier next year. I received a $25 gift card, which we put towards these cute summer sandals. I chose these as I didn’t have any bright summer shoes and the wedges were decorated with strands of colour! They are super comfy and easy to walk in and you can also buy them with natural coloured straps.

Fashion Exhibition

On Tuesday night, I was invited to attend a Fashion VIP Exhibition with my friend Yasmine (littlemissyasmine). The work was astounding, the eye for detail and embellishments were so unique. We probably walked around the exhibition at least 3 times whilst trying to take in all the work! In the end I think Yasmine and I had a more exciting and definitely more amusing time trying to take our photos, on a phone, considering the camera was not working! So apologies for the blurriness, we had a hard time holding the phone straight!

 I absolutely love these shoes, the little gems are so cute and paired with the beige tone it isn’t too overwhelming I’m glad I finally got somewhere to wear them out, but boy they hurt!

I modified the blazer as originally it looked like a denim jacket that was much too big for me, but the pattern was to die for so I bought it anyway. I pinned the collar to the lining, tucked in the front pockets and added two side belt loops so I could cinch in the waist with a sash, rolling up the sleeves added that final touch!
