Being Organised

Hi all!

So this is a non-nail post but you know I like to throw them in every now and then.

Recently my lovely friend Amanda started her blog She's Eclectic and straight away I started lusting over her filofax and decided I MUST have one!

So after much googling and research I decided to go with A5 and after much searching I found this beauty on Paperchase.


I love this model as the front has wallet style card holders (which I'm storing any Indie Polish cards in) and a zipped compartment, for bits and bobs.


The back also has 2 storage pouches, one behind the other and the front pouch holds my Slimming World book (which I'm trying to dedicate myself to again) perfectly.


Next step was personalisation....


As you can see and for those that know me I'm My Little Pony mad!  This has recently been amplified by the gift of the most amazing Pinkie Pie phone cover by a friend at Christmas.










Here's my fab pen, that I already had, which fits perfectly into the holder.


Amanda also shared these fabulous dividers with me from Japan Corner on etsy.







So I got the basics covered in terms of tabs but I couldn't not get one dedicated to Nails ♥


Also, how cute is this little bookmark, I'd actually been thinking of getting one now I don't have to.


I'm basically using this to keep on top of blogging and challenges as well as my mum's appointments (and there's a lot of those).

I'm addicted now and keep looking for quirky bits to personalise it.

  2. Omg I LOVE seeing all these photos of your filofax! I am very jealous of your My Little Pony stickers too ;) I brought some new washi tape this week that would go perfectly with your binder, it's the same lovely colour.
    Thanks for mentioning my blog, I hope some lovely new people pop over to see me!

I'm trying.

Hi! So I've been trying my damnedest to keep this blog going. And I'm not doing very well. I had drafted some posts a while back (which I will still go ahead and post). I never got round to posting them at the time because I had an iPhone and the app just didn't want to work for me.
I know theyre a little out of date but I hope you still find them interesting. So what's been happening since I last posted?  Well I met a guy (on Tinder of all places), we got engaged last November (I'll do a proper post on this), and we got marries this September!  We enjoyed a wonderful honeymoon in Japan and for the past month its been back to reality. I am going to change this blog a bit.  Before it could have always been classified as a beauty blog. Now I think it'll be more of an eclectic blog (by the way check out She's Eclectic one of my all time favourite bloggers). Anyway,  sorry about all the words and lack of pictures bit I hope to rectify that soon. Bye for now.

Money Smart Nail Art Competition Entry

Hi all!
Wow!  I'm really shocked, MoneySupermarket.com have invited me to participate in their Money Smart Nail Art Bloggers Competition.  This means I am in with the chance to win a prize worth £300, how amazing would that be!


Anyway for my regular followers you will know that I'm mad on leopard print!  So I thought what better design to do a tutorial on.  
Materials Required: Base Coat - I use OPI Matte Nail Envy Selection of polishes - cremes are best for opacity but you can use glitters if you build them up Nail Art pen or Dotting Tool  Top Coat - I use Seche Vite

Paint your nails with the base coat to protect your nail from staining (I also find that Nail Envy encourages nail growth). *A good tip is before you start, wipe your nails with some nail polish remover, this is called squeaking the nail, it will remove any excess oil, making your mani last longer.

Paint your nails your chosen colours, any colours work but I've chose a few of the Barry M Gellies (which are c…

Pastel Polka Dots

Hello lovelies!
A lazy Friday night in resulted in playing with polish and with studs. 

Polishes used: Lime Crime - Parfait Day Treasures By Tan - Gramma Cupcake

I was in the mood for some spring pastels to brighten up this horrid grey weather we've been suffering recently. 

I added the studs as an afterthought, I was going to attempt some freehand art but I love how these turned out.
