25/11/15 – Mum’s prebirthday cupcake manicure!

It’s the day before my mum’s birthday so we decided to chill out a bit after a busy evening yesterday. Whilst watching The Breakfast Club I painted her nails with a birthday theme! I’m pretty proud of them – probably my best yet!

We then went into London for a spot of shopping before heading out to dinner with Nic and her friend. Please don’t make me go back to work on Friday!

03/11/2013 – Girlie Post!

I’m not sure how much I talk about nails on here, but if you’ve come from my twitter, you’ll know I’m an avid nail painter.

Well, recently I’ve been more of an avid nibbler, so I invested in OPI’s nail envy, and have been using it for just over a week now and loving it. Here’s a picture of my week’s progress (sorry they’re slightly grubby!). I’d highly recommend it, it’s a bit steep at £20 from John, but you’d pay that for one manicure anyway, so I think it’s worth it (and it’s much cheaper online!)

07/10/2013 – Freelancing in Design

Today is my first day back in work after leaving Awin last month. I’m working freelance at the moment, two weeks at a medical PR company in central London. It’s a big change! I’m quickly learning both the negatives and positives to working freelance (more money, more unstable).

I’ve learnt so much over the last month (how NOT to spend money whilst in London being the main thing) it’s made September absolutely fly by with so much going on. It was nice to have a ‘break’ but it’s definitely nicer being back in a job. I do love designing.

04/10/2013 – I’m on the rooooad again

I seem to be doing so much travelling recently, and this weekend is no different.
As mentioned previously, it’s my cousin Nic’s wedding tomorrow and I’m one of three bridesmaids! Today consisted of travelling up to Wilmslow for the rehearsal and family dinner.
It’s a lot soggier up north it seems, but I’ve been informed the weather is meant to be on our side tomorrow, fingers crossed!

Photo 03-10-2013 21 53 54Tomorrow I leave for Manchester (again!) but this time it’s for the real deal – my cousin’s wedding! I’m one of her three bridesmaids, and after numerous weekends of dress fittings now’s the time to don our glad rags and make sure Nic and Ben have the most wonderful day!

With my nails painted, bag packed, and camera on charge, I’m feeling quite prepared for what I’m sure will be a beautiful weekend for all.
