I’m definitely a closet Nicki Minaj fan. There, I’ve said it. I pretty much love her. She’s hilarious and I do really like her music, especially her early Young Money stuff when she wasn’t all over David Guetta. Anyway, I’m not on the other hand, usually a fan of celeb fragrances, they either all smell the same, I’m looking at you Britney, or are just made because they know it’ll sell ridiculously fast – hi, One Direction.
Another hair post this week! Dry shampoo is one of my staple hair styling products, but this one has disappointed me! I hate to say this because I do like Batiste hair products normally, I’ve bought their normal dry shampoo for years but this one, I think because of the XXLness of this product it makes your hair feel really thick and sticky and horrible! I mean, I’m going to use it up because I’ve bought it but I won’t be buying this one again. I’ll buy the normal dry shampoo again but this one was horrible! It didn’t make my hair feel fresh at all, just sticky and full of residue. Not the idea of a dry shampoo at all! The only nice thing about this is the smell, it does smell lovely.
At the moment, and for the foreseeable future, I am brunette. I have been for a few years now and I think dark is definitely my friend. I’ve been probably every hair colour under the sun and I like being dark. I’m not loyal, however, to any hair dye. I’m naturally brunette, but a much lighter version than I dye it. This was my latest encounter into hair dye. L’Oreal Preference High Shine Elixir.
I haven’t done a lifestyle post for ages but I had a really lovely Sunday last weekend. Mr Friday & I had Sunday lunch at The Rose Cottage in Rufford, Nottinghamshire. Just over the road from Rufford Park in which we had a super cute little walk round the chilly grounds. Now, down to the important bit, I’m picky about my Sunday dinners because my daddy makes the, absolute ridiculously incredible roast dinners. They are literally the best, no question.
Guest Post Monday again! This is a lovely little press release for Pretty Polly about their new collaboration with Virgin Atlantic, I think it’s great that they’re creating tights to support hard working legs. I didn’t realise that being on your feet all day could cause such problems. I also love these visuals, Virgin Atlantic are so glam!
So, here’s the unveiling of my amazing boots from Urban Outfitters! There was so many amazing pieces that I could have chosen but I wanted to get an investment piece that will last me ages! These Deena & Ozzy boots are gorgeous, leather and just plain amazing to go with so many things.
So the day so many Nottingham city dwellers have been waiting for happened on Thursday. Urban Outfitters in the Victoria Centre opened! Yaaaaay. And it is huge! Absolutely massive with a ghost staircase leading downstairs to even more indie and edgy goodness. I was invited along to the Press & Blogger opening in the morning, massively grateful as I didn’t really fancy fighting my way through the crowds in the evening. Here are a few sneaky snaps of the day.
Basially, I love Fran from Made in Chelsea’s style, I think she always looks wicked. So I’ve picked a few bits that I think she’d wear, she loves a floral bold print and a fedora. Pair with a leather jacket or statement blazer and you’ve got her effortless but oh so stylish look. Tres chic.
This is my favourite, favourite, ever foundation. I’ve always had issues with foundation because I have super oily skin. I totally didn’t even realise I did until I was probably about 18-19, FYI not that long ago and I started buying matte foundations, more powder and oil free moisturiser etc. I’m also really blemish prone and obviously, I hate it!
Productivity, and getting shit done, is usually my aim for the day.
So I thought I’d share a few lil apps, that I like, that help, basically, get shit done.
Personally, to get shit done, I find that I need to take baby steps, make lists and tick things off!
This is a goal reaching app, whether it be losing weight, completing a big task or creating your dream event, Everest is a great little app that can help you along the way. “Everest exists to unlock human potential.”
I love this little tag line, so inspiring don’t you think? For my Everest, I’ve put getting my degree for my major goal, with presentations and hand in dates along the way along with little goals and achievements to get on the way.
