REVIEW: Seventeen Quicker Slicker Nail Polish - Peacock

Well hello there my lovelies, I have been working so much recently that my nails have been an absolute state! I have been neglecting them so much. While browsing the shops I came across this little beauty.

Not only is this product extremely cheap, it does does exactly what it says on the label. when applying the polish, it is very deep in colour and feels almost thicker than usual nail polish. The drying time is incredible, it literally takes a minute to be dry to the touch which is convenient for the days where you're in a rush. The shine is also brilliant, It looks as if there was a flash used in the photo, i promise you there was not, it's the sun. 

I highly rate this product and will be investing in some more colours, the price is also a great positive to the product! I'd say one coat can pass as enough however, I'd say two to be sure and get the most out of the result.

Have you tried this product? let me know which are your favourite colours so I can try them! 
Lots of love

Preparing for University! - Haul so far!

Wow I can't believe it's September, this summer has flown by. As some of you may be aware, I am starting University this month and will be moving to Leeds! Super exciting stuff! Anyway, I have been collecting some items which I will be needing during my year in accommodation. I didn't buy everything in bulk and there are still a couple of things I am yet to buy. However, I wanted to do an update on what I have collected so far! This post will consist mostly of photos, sometimes they say it better than words!

So to start off, here are some of the items I have collected for my room! I really love floral prints and the  shabby chic style. I found this beautiful duvet cover at tesco however I then bought it off amazon. I was looking for a bed throw/ blanket for sooooooo long, I was genuinely overjoyed when I found one that matched my duvet! I got the little 'home' ornament as it looks so nice and in ways nostalgic. It makes me feel like I'm bringing a bit of home with me.

When looking for kitchen items, I wanted colourful! Mainly because I want my things to be quite individual and stand out. 

Most of the items for my kitchen were less than £5. I browsed various shops and found that some items can be 10 times cheaper in other places, you just have to look!

Apart from the small items I have shown today, I have bought other larger appliances such as a printer and toaster etc. I will upload a picture of my room once I have settled in!

Let me know if you've found any great uni buys and where I can get them!

 Lots of love
