little treats

Just a quick post..
1. Because I am feeling lazy tonight (reckon I’m entitled really after being at my placement all day and then pattern cutting for two hours)
2. I have to be up at 6am so I kinda want to sleep..

I’m having issues at the minute. Either I need to stop spending or someone is going to have to offer me full time employment. Preferably the latter.


I picked up this little haul in TK Maxx on Sunday (dangers of shopping with a hangover) with the intention that I could ‘decide at home’ if I really wanted any of it. However, I have managed to persuade myself to believe that they are all complete necessities. Listen though, this is my justification:
– The shoes are nude Carvela slingbacks with a 4inch heel, therefore perfect work shoes (when I find aforementioned full time job).
– Essie nail polishes cost £7.99 each, therefore £7.99 for a nail polish AND a nail foundation base coat (yeah, I’m a bit hazy as to why nails need foundation but I love a good gimmick..) is DEFINITELY a bargain.
– Who doesn’t need a handy travel documents wallet to keep your passport, flight tickets, insurance docs (etc, etc) all together in one handy to lose place??

See what I mean? I need them all..
My mother meanwhile kindly poked a hole in the last justification by pointing out that I didn’t currently have another holiday booked yet. Thanks for that. Yet being the operative word though.

I’m looking forward to trying out the essie polish. I’d be interested to hear opinions bbloggers since being a bit of a beauty blogging novice and it’s a brand that seems to have just suddenly appeared out of the blue. Although the help signs in Boots reassure us that it is a very popular in the US. Any thoughts?

    I love Essie nail varnishes – by far the best I've tried and their 'no chips ahead' topcoat literally doubles the life of my nail varnish. You used to only be able to buy Essie in Libertys but theres a new 'diffusion line' in boots now but they're still great quality, and the wider brushes are actually better in my opinion.

      aww really? My main qualm with nail polishes is that I end up chipping it to bits so that sounds ideal! I'll have to have a look for it xx

    Hahah, I like your rationalization technique. I use it all the time with my buys. 🙂
    Anyways, those heels are great! And I live in the States though I've never heard of Essie. Looks like I need to check it out…

    I love Essie nail polishes, what is the shade you got? It looks absolutely fab! I was eying up the base coats they do as well so you will have to let me know what you think! xx

      Hey Sarah, good to hear from you 🙂 It's called Bachelorette Bash.
      The nail foundation is really good, either as a base coat or just by itself! I'd definitely recommend it. Haven't tried out the polish yet but I'll post pics when I do.
      Hope you're well xx
