Yesterday's Therapy

Well, when I say therapy - I mean retail therapy of course! Yesterday was a sad day. I left my uni house with the girls for the last time, I didn't want to leave and I'm going to miss them so much, but I know I'll still see them; I've got friends for life with those two. {and we're going on holiday soon!}

So I thought that I would have a little shop, cheer myself up and get excited for holiday!

I definitely needed some new nail varnishes, and I had my nails painted by a friend the other day who used OPI base coat and top coat and they lasted for ages compared to any other nail varnish I've used. I got the set from John Lewis {£11.95} but I am aware you can get it cheaper online if you look - I just couldn't be bothered to wait for it to be delivered!

I also got myself a light pink Essie Nail Lacquer, "Fiji" {£7.99}. It is really really light pink, but I chose that because I wanted a light colour for the summer but literally cannot stand white nail varnish, unless it has a pattern over it. I feel like this is a good in between and because of the lightness it will go with almost anything.

And finally, on the nail varnish part, I got a Barry M Matte Topcoat {£2.99}. It annoys me when I'm painting my nails with matte nail varnish and can't finish them off - a topcoat is always a must. But also, with matte nail varnishes I feel like you're just buying all the colours you already have again in matte... why not just buy the topcoat and make the colours you already have into matte!

Piz Buin One Day Long Suncream - ON SPECIAL OFFER! I can't tell you how excited it makes me, it is my favourite suncream and I always use it. It protects you all day and smells beautiful at the same time. What more could I want? It's buy one get one free in Boots at the moment, although be quick because it's going! or better than half price in SuperDrug {£8.98}.

I also got 'He's Not That Into You' by Greg Behrendt & Liz Tuccillo in a little book shop near me. A friend recommended this to me a few weeks back after my break up. I said that I didn't think it sounds like a good idea. Her reply? "It just makes you feel woman power". Well, it's worth a go then, isn't it! I'll write a little review once I'm done, for all you heavy hearted women. You can also get this book here, from amazon. And I might even watch the film afterwards, it's got some good actors!

And last, but very much not least, the most beautiful little playsuit I ever did see. I am in love already - can I live in it please!? This one I didn't buy while I was out, I had actually done some online shopping the day before but it came in the post today. I love the colours, I love the fit, it's just so comfortable and so cute at the same time - Missguided, you've done it again! You can get it here. {£19.99}

After all this, I only went out for a pair of sunglasses I was desperate for from River Island... I couldn't even get them!

And, to finish off the day, I went out for an extremely belated birthday meal with my family and David, my dad's friend who has been in our lives for as long as I can remember. We went to The Fish and Eels, doesn't sound very appealing, huh!? Well, it was. Cheesy garlic bread, lamb shoulder and chocolate brownie - went all out on the 3 course meal! Such nice, yummy, home made food. Its also right by the canal, and it was a beautiful night.

Hope everyone had a lovely day!

  3. Absolutely LOVE the playsuit... so much so that I just ordered it for myself! Also I completely agree with you about matte nail varnishes, I never really got on that trend because I couldn't really justify buying colours I already had just with a different finish.
