Wishlist 1

001. Black block t-shirt from Topshop, I saw this online and I think it looks quite expensive and could be a good day to night conversion item! I would end up buying it over-sized though for a more chilled out look i think.

002. Nails inc. matte black nail paint, I have been after some matte black nail paint for a while now, I think it has quite a grungy yet luxurious feel to it, whilst being, in a way, peculiar to other genres of nail paints (if nail paints have their own genres?!).

003.Whilst i'm not 100% decided on whether or not I quite like the exact shape of the black oval stone in the ring because - yes, I am very picky, the detail surrounding the stone is what attracted me to it. I also love both black and gold together which is another bonus however I ALWAYS lose rings! I don't know how but I can never find any when I need one - which I suppose is another reason to buy this one from ASOS?! Too many pros and cons!

004. River Island leather jacket, I tried this on last time I was in store, it looked so perfect but with a price tag of £140, there was no way I could afford it, bring on pay day please. This is by far the best leather jacket I have seen so far and I am lusting after it so badly at the moment, I wish I could control my money spending so that I can afford things like this! After all though, this is real leather and would be an investment piece, yes? I NEED it!

005. Topshop black eye shadow, I need some new black eye shadow after I dropped my old one on a night out causing it to shatter all over the toilet floor in a nightclub :'(  As were many, I was hesitant to try topshop's make-up range at first, but it is rapidly becoming my favourite.

006. Topshop leopard print leggings, these are dreamy! Wanted a pair for a very long time and in 9 days will be able to treat myself! I am in love with everything leopard print and I think these will look very chilled out and casual! Need clothing for my legs other than black skinny jeans anyway.

007. Finally, the greatly coveted Topshop Allegras! Such a wardrobe staple, I think I would struggle to find an outfit they didn't enhance, unless of course we are going down the full, bright orange tracksuit route - which, just to clarify, I am not planning on busting one out any time soon!

I am also after a tattoo, I have wanted one for an awfully long time now, but kept changing my mind as to what I wanted permanently tattooed onto my skin and where abouts it would actually be. Anyway, I have come to a final decision and would like a tattoo of a daisy chain on my foot. Not a really girly one, more like the one Peaches Geldof has along her leg and side but sticking to the foot rather than the entire length of my body! Not only can I not get a tattoo just yet, due to lack of funds but i'm due to give blood in early November so will need to wait until after then. I am quite excited to have finally made a decision regarding my tattoo dilemma but I am a bit of a wuss, so will be extremely nervous nearer the time, my friend owns a tattoo studio though so hopefully she will calm me down through the trauma as she sticks a needle through my skin! Oh dear, hope it's worth it. xoxo

Bolt nails

Today I tried to be creative, using tape to create a nail art lightening bolt and I would say it was a partial success! Apologies for the lousy image and also my chubby fingers don't really flatter the nail art either! It is fairly obvious I did these nails in a rush plus the colour choice isn't really 'me'. 

I used: 
- A black 'Models Own' nail art pen (fairly new purchased so still slightly obsessed).
- Red 'Barry M' nail paint in 'bright red' shade 262
-Black 'Models Own' nail paint in 'black magic' shade 045

Tomorrow at some point I will post an outfit or something exciting other than nail art - I promise! I think I am beginning to get the hang of blogging, still feels pretty new and interesting at the moment. xoxo

Leopard Nails

Really getting into nail art right now (well i suppose i need something to fill my lazy days!). I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to achieve a leopard print pattern, i used Barry M shade 306 (pale blue) shade 279 (bright pink) and the new Models Own black nail art pen which i recently bought!

Okay, I have to say, i am new to the whole world of blogging, i feel pretty intimidated if i am being honest! My blog is looking pretty shabby and i am yet to work out how to make it look all pretty, oh well, hopefully i will figure it all out. xoxo
