NOTW- Manicure Mondays #2 #Sinful Colors #purpleglitter

£1.99 Sinful Colours purchased at Boots
I first found out about Sinful Colors last year for my 20th birthday as I made a mad dash to my local Boots for some nail polish because I couldn't afford to get my nails done professionally. A boots sales assistant informed me about Sinful Colors which are an American brand and she said she swears by them. For £1.99 I thought what can I lose and let me tell you they are amazing. The colour applies well and on selected Sinful polishes they are 3 for £4 at Boots.

Have you heard about Sinful Colors before?

Happy Mothers Day- Dear Mum

As its mother’s day I just wanted to dedicate a blog post to my mum.
Dear Mum: I know we sometimes argue and we don’t always get on but you are always there for me through heartbreaks ready and waiting with a box of tissues and  feeding me my own body weight in chocolate to perk me up. When I feel everything is going wrong and I can’t handle university, your there with a flag at the finishing line telling me I can get my degree. Most of all you are helping me achieve my dreams to go to Australia and although you know if an opportunity arises, I will be relocating there and you won’t get to see me often, you are still cheering me on telling me to grab every chance I can because life’s too short and you know you would get to have a holiday in Oz when visiting.

As a thank you for all her help and bringing me in to this world, I treated my mum to a lovely bouquet of tulips from and a card just to say how much I care about her. I chose tulips rather than any other flower as they remind me of spring and I loved the vibrant colours which I knew they would brighten her day. When purchasing a bunch of flowers, I also got a free card and of course I picked tatty ted as it’s her favourite. In total it came to £29.99 with Saturday delivery.

 My mum had no idea I had ordered her anything, I just told her to wait at home as they’re was a special delivery and she couldn’t believe her eyes when a van appeared and a guy stepped out with a giant bouquet with a special message in side. I know that spending a small fortune or even hand making a gift would mean the world to her because as long she knows I’m thinking about her, that’s all that matters.

Happy mother’s day to the most wonderful mum, who today of all days decided to come down to Huddersfield and meet me to buy me a food shop because she knew I was running low on food.

Did you do anything special for your mum this mother’s day?

Roxy Ballroom Leeds- Bloggers event

Roxy Ballroom, Leeds part of the Jones bar group opened its doors a few weeks back and I was luckily enough to be invited, thanks to my fellow blogging friend I have only managed to do a posting as at the time I didn’t have any pictures of the night and I have been waiting for them from fellow bloggers.

Roxy Ballroom is located literally minutes way from the station which was perfect for me, as I had just had a mad dash on a Primark shopping spree at Leeds Trinity and insisted I wore my new platform heels which as they were new, I couldn’t walk in them very long distances.

When we first arrived we were taken straight to the V.I.P room. I didn’t know what to expect but as soon as the doors opened, the Ping Pong table was staring me in the face and I knew I had to have a go. The managers at Roxy wanted to create an All American feel which they certainly achieved.

As soon as the Ping Pong bats and balls made their way to me, me and Kerys acted like little children at a Wacky Warehouse playground and it was game on, or it was until we found out we wasn't too good at Ping Pong and instead of lightly hitting the balls, they were flying all over the room.

After spending a brief five minutes playing, we decided it was probably for the best for everyone’s sake to give it up and hit the Ping Pong punch instead. The pink concoction made of Amaretto and a bunch of other things was amazing and went down a lot easier than I imagined.

Ping Pong tables and pool tables aren't just in the V.I.P room; they are situated all around in the main bar which makes it a relaxed place to go during lunch hour or after a long day at work. The V.I.P room is an amazing space for a party with just close friends before hitting a night club. It costs £20 an hour and the ping pong table can be placed in a cupboard if you prefer to have an open space party.

My 21st is approaching in July and I haven’t planned anything yet but I know I want to do something big. I think Roxy Ballroom would make an ideal location to host my party and I can guarantee everyone will enjoy playing beer pong.

Have you been to Roxy ballroom?

Asos- Figure hugging velvet dress

The weekend just seemed to slip away and before I knew it, it was time to attend lectures and seminars at university after having a busy but more relaxed time during my reading week. In the past few weeks, I haven’t really been out on the town properly where I could dress up and show off my new outfit. As my readers know I have only just recently had a break up after three years of being in a relationship so it’s been a tough time and I finally wanted to show the world I’m back.

I live in Huddersfield and as it’s a fairly cheap night out and I live close to town, myself and a few friends wanted a nice night out to relax and forget about our worrying troubles of finishing our degrees.
A few weeks back I was having a nosy on Asos when I came across a gorgeous figure hugging velvet look burgundy dress but to my horror, it had sold out of my size.

 A few days later I was online when an advertisement popped up showing the same dress again because I had clicked on it previously. I took my chances to see if they could have possible restocked a few more size 8’s and to my surprise, they had. I didn't waste a second and within a flash I had ordered the sweetheart neckline dress for an incredible £27.00 with student discount.

Finally after a few weeks waiting, the opportunity came to go on a night out and of course I couldn't refuse. It was the perfect chance to team my dress with the Primark heels I mentioned in an earlier post. One of my girly friends let me lend a lovely statement necklace for the night which she had bought from Venice and I took this cute vintage box bag which I received as a gift for Christmas from Topshop.

I painted my lips red and gave my eyes a smoky effect too to finish my look. It’s safe to say though, the morning after I looked nothing like I did in the photos and I was fighting off a very aggressive hangover but it was worth it.

Dress- Asos
Necklace- Venice- Unknown shop
Bag- Topshop

Heels- Primark
