So sorry for being a terrible terrible blogger over the last couple of months. There are a multitude of
I've mentioned in previous posts that I tend to stick to brands I know. I'm the same with skincare, haircare, makeup even perfumes. I know what I like and I rarely venture away from my usual products which is a very boring way to be but on the rare occasion I do try something new it's nice to be pleasantly surprised!
Whilst pottering about like an old biddy in H&M, I wandered into their beauty section and noticed an array of gorgeous nail polishes. I can't get enough of creamy taupe shades at the moment and they had plenty to choose from. On finding they were only £2.99 to say I got a little over excited would be an understatement. I could have easily bought one in every colour but even at £2.99 to buy the whole collection would have come to.......*thinking*........*thinking*.......well maths was never my strong point but let's just say a fair bit and I'm trying to behave myself after splurging at Christmas.
I settled for a soft dusky pink called Get a Rose 4 Me and a very sparkly champagne shade which has a hint of silver called Wawawoom although in the photos it just looks gold! Both are really nice shades although the Wawawoom goes on better than the pink shade. They both need two coats as one doesn't give a good enough coverage and looks quite watery.
After my H&M super splurge I headed to Ikea. It's not unusual for me to spend 3 hours in Ikea and come out with a desk tidy or pot for my toothbrush and this visit was no different. I bought a tub. Not just any tub. A tub for all my new nail polishes.
Here are a few pictures of my Ikea adventure! This bedroom is exactly how I want mine, it's so cute and cosy. Hopefully next month this dressing table will be in my bedroom. I doubt all my lotions, potions or cosmetics will fit inside the tiny draws but I love it all the same.
I was nattering to Katie from Okay Tea? on Twitter about how much fun it is playing house in Ikea. Much like the scene from 500 Days of Summer although I was all on my lonesome and didn't get to smooch Joseph Gordon Levitt during my trip which was very disappointing! Maybe next time!
How's everyone enjoying the New Year so far? I always feel a bit miserable once Christmas and New Year are out the way. There's such a build up to it and then it's over in a flash.
Have any of you girls tried the H&M polishes? What are your thoughts? This is my first time trying them and I'll definitely be going back for more.
