A Mini Haul

Hey lovelies,

I hope you're all well and looking forward to the weekend.

This is just a quick post to share a few little things I've picked up this week.




I finally sourced a gorgeous iridescent Model's Own nail polish which I've been admiring online for many months, "Indian Ocean". Every beauty blogger and their pampered pooch seems to have been raving about this nail polish for months, while I'd only been able to admire it from afar... until now.

I went in to Boots to buy bandages and found myself distracted by the Model's Own display- I'd never found one anywhere before. The Indian Ocean polish turned out to be a beautiful lilac-blue polish with a hot pink and light gold metallic sheen, far prettier than I'd imagined it to be. It was £5 for a very generous sized pot. I also picked up a black nail art pen which was £6, which I later began using to turn my red nails in to ladybirds.


In Accessorize I found these adorable heart print hair grips for just £3 for 15. They're so cute and have a tight grip so hopefully they'll last a bit longer than the average kirby grip.




And, I also bought this quirky little pencil necklace from Accessorize. It was on sale with 70 percent off the original price, which meant I only parted with £1.80 to make it my own! Not bad considering it's guaranteed to be worn to death as it's just my style!

I have my heart set on so many accessories and make up products after this little shopping trip. My favourite find was a string of multi coloured necklaces in pastel shades combined as one pretty boho necklace. I desperately want to buy it to wear with my Spring/Summer wardrobe. Here's hoping for a lottery win on the horizon...

What have you been buying recently?

Thanks for reading,

  1. I have the Indian Ocean polish. On its own it takes 4 coats and still isn't completely opaque, but over a light blue or lilac looks really pretty and over black looks completely different :)

    1. I found I needed at least 3 coats for a decent coating, but I agree it definitely isn't quite opaque. I'm definitely going to try it over those colours- I'm especially interested to see how it might look over a black polish! Never even thought of combining the two colours- thanks for the tips! :)
