I just spent about an hour and a half on my nails. I used Barry M’s Mushroom and MUA’s Shade 18. I did the dots with the flat end of a pin after seeing Gem Fatale’s Tuesday Tip. They’re not perfect but it was a first attempt. They probably won’t last long, I’ll get bored of them and change them before the weekend!
I’m very impressed with the MUA (Makeup Academy) nail polish. I’d always just walked past all of the MUA stuff in Superdrug because of the price tag – everything’s £1 so I automatically thought it would all be rubbish. Yesterday I was very upset because as you’ll know if you follow me on twitter my DSLR just died on me so I needed cheering up. I was looking at the Barry M polish and thought why not try MUA? After all, it’s only £1! I’m glad I did, I’ll be going back there to try the rest if the range. I fancy a new lipstick.
Have you tried anything from the MUA range? What did you think?
|My favourite Primark girls
I have been buying…food, ferry/train/coach tickets, a few basic bits from Primark
I have been eating at… I went to Nandos with my friends from work. It was the first time I’d been and I wasn’t too impressed with the food. Mcdonalds breakfasts every Sunday!
I have visited…I only got as far as Eastleigh.. I’ve just been stuck in Winchester
Best Bargain… I got a basic black playsuit from Primark for a fiver, it needs adjusting but I love it. I also got some black pumps reduced to £1 and a tan skinny belt for £1. I also spent £95 on a Reading ticket.. worth every penny!
I have achieved… I had two job interviews and managed to get both of the jobs!
I’ve been listening to… The HP7 audiobook, Muse, Chew Lips, Little Boots
I’ve been reading… The audiobook counts, right?
Next month I’m looking forward to… My holiday to the Isle of Wight, going home afterwards, going to see Peter Kay, going to see Russell Howard’s Good News, starting my new jobs.
Next month I hope to splash some cash on… Good food and days out on holiday.
Nandos on Sunday night was good.. I wasn’t too keen on the food, it was a bit too fast food for my liking. The chocolate cheesecake that I had for dessert (see above) was gorgeous though! I’d definitely go again just for that. The company was fantastic. I’m going to be so sad to leave Primark because of a certain few people. Hopefully I’ll still see them around though. Before we went to Nandos, I went to Spoons with my friends Hera, Lily and Tim where I discovered a new vodka, Eristoff Gold it is the most delicious thing I have ever tasted! “Our latest flavour innovation fuses the classic taste of ERISTOFF Original with the smooth, buttery taste of caramel – not forgetting a little vanilla – to produce a vodka that tastes as distinctive as it looks.” I now have a new drink of choice in Spoons!
Yesterday I went into town to see the man at the hotel and he said it’s fine if I work evenings so now I have two jobs! I will be starting after I get back from home in a couple of weeks. Afterwards, my boyfriend treated me to lunch at Slug and Lettuce because it’s 50% off on a Monday and I’d been craving bacon and cheese wedges for ages! The service was really slow so we got our starters for free which was a bonus. We then went for a lovely walk by the river and fed a load of ducks.
It’s less than a week until I go away to the Isle of Wight. I’m so excited! I won’t be taking my laptop with me so I won’t be blogging. If there’s free wifi anywhere I will be checking blogs. I’ll still be on twitter though! I’ll schedule a few posts for the days I’m away.
I now have 93 followers, so close to 100. I’m so overwhelmed! It seems like only yesterday I started this blog and now I have loads of people interested. I’m tempted to do another giveaway soon to say thank you to all you lovely followers.
Here’s some blogs I’ve discovered recently that I think you should all check out too: Sophie Isobel, ghostparties., Ella Masters and her shop RubyRaeLove which has some gorgeous pieces of jewellery in stock, I can’t wait until I get a bit of money so I can buy some! Definitely check these girls out!
