Eurovision Euphoria

Eating scones in the afternoon :)

Hey everyone! WOW, two weeks ago, in the freezing cold, I would never have guessed that a week later I would be lounging in the garden in shorts, and slopping on the suncream! The weather has been absoutely amazing, I haven't even let exams get in the way of enjoying the sun!

Last week, was Eurovision weekend (definitely one on the funniest weekends of the year!) I went round to Jess's to watch the show, and it didn't dissapoint! As well as the usual laugh out loud, euro pop songs, there were actually a couple of really good summer songs in there, that I have been playing on repeat while revising in the sun :) As you can tell by the title, the winning song from  Sweden  'Euphoria by Loreen' was defintely one of my faves!

So, I thought I would leave you with a couple of pics :) Next week is half term! which means no exams, and also, The Maccabees concert at Alexandra Palace which we are sooo excited about! :) Have a great rest of the week!

scoffing up those scones! ;)

Nail Art, and my loafers from River Island :)

Jess is wearing- Dress- Miss Prodigy,  Paloma is wearing- Jumpsuit- Primark, Belt- ZARA

My jumpsuit has to be one my favourite pieces in my wardrobe, I wore it to death last summer, and I think this summer I will be doing the same! It is really comfy, but the strapless design means that it can be dressed up as well :D
Jess's dress is really summery, because of the watermelon print! and she had watermelon nails to match! :)

Having a bit too much fun!

Summer Dreams :)

Hey all! Me and Jess went walk about on the weekend after taking a break from revision! We decided to take a few pictures because it was such a beautiful day!  We felt like such tourists but it was worth it because the setting was really summery and pretty and made us forget all about the stress of exams and look forward to summer- woohoo! Can't wait :)

Also, we have both been on the lookout for summery beachwear for holidays (high waisted bikinis are a particular fave!) Jess bought  a gorgeous
bikini from Topshop, definitely worth a look!

I am wearing: Jumper- M&S, Cardigan- ZARA, Jeans, TK MAXX, loafers- River Island, Sunnies- Miss Sixty 

Jess is wearing:  Hat- Portobello Market, Blouse- Topshop, Shoes- Converse, Jeans- Topshop, Belt- New Look, Cardigan- F&F, Sunnies- Steve Madden at TK MAXX

Have a great week everyone! I'm looking forward to the Eurovision this weekend :) Who else is? Definitely one of my guilty pleasures :P

Hi guys :) We've managed to post twice in a week, woooo :) Here is a quick tutorial on Nautical Nails as we both thought that it has been a LONG time since we did a nail post. Don't be afraid to try it, it's dead easy!

First step is to paint your base coats.
I chose red for all of my nails and white for my ring finger :)
Using Nail Art Pens or a cocktail stick dipped in polish, draw on your beach chair style stripes,
i did blue and white alternating. Leave out your ring finger so that you can draw on it later.

On your ring finger draw an anchor in any colour you'd like, i chose the blue to keep with the nautical theme.
 An easy way to do this is to draw a circle at the top of your nail, join that to a cross, then put a semi circle at hte bottom, but it's up to you :)

A quick review of the white nail polish I used :) It's essential to have a white polish in your collection,
this is by far the best white i've used and it's also great for homemade french manicure, cheap too!!

The finished product :) Perfect for those summery days when you wish you were on holiday already :)

'You say Goodbye, and I say Hello'

Jess as Rapunzel and me as Ariel

Goodbye school, Hello exams! Me and Jess finished school on friday for study leave, and, as tradition we ended Year 11 with 'Muck Up day' (which in case you are unsure means having a blast, mucking up the school and dressing up  in fancy dress!)- AMAZING!

After much talking over what to come as we decided in Disney characters, because, who doesn't love a disney movie!? :)

Jess came as Rapunzel from the film Tangled (one of my faves!), and I came as Ariel from the Little Mermaid :) Who are your favourites? Haha no need to panic! I didn't dye my hair red, just used a spray dye, which after washing my hair for about an hour has finally come out, YAY! I made sure I didn't go to heavy on the make-up though, because I knew that there would be a lot of crying, and sadly I was right! It was such a good day but also really sad as we had to say good-bye to loads of friends who aren't going to be staying with us in sixth form :(

But it was such a fun day, so I thought I would leave you with a couple of pictures:

Tweedle Dee, Ariel, Rapunzel, Mulan :)

Minnie Mouse, Tweedle Dum, Tianna (Princess and the frog), Tweedle Dee, Rapunzel, Crook (101 dalmations),Ariel,
