Essie Nail Polishes

I’ve heard of Essie Nail polishes but I’ve never actually tried them, so I have no idea what the textures or wear is like?

But over the last few days I’ve been scroll on Pinterest and I spotted a few pictures which showed some of the names of the colours and they all look so pretty ☺️😍

Do you or have you used this brand?

What is your verdict on there nail varnishes?

Let me know your thoughts? Hope you have enjoyed this post and have a good Monday..

β˜€οΈβ˜€οΈSunny Sundayβ˜€οΈβ˜€οΈ

What a beautiful day it was yesterday, 24th June! The Sun and Blue Skies were a gorgeous sight to see all day..

I was planning on having a productive house work kinda morning, but I got a text from an old work mate who I’ve note seen in about 7 months we arranged she’d pick me up then head into town for a coffee and a catch up. We ended up going to Patisserie Valerie, as I had brought a Brunch for two Groupon Voucher.

With it being such a lovely morning we sat outside in the sun..

I went for a Latte and Eggs Benedict and I paid extra for a sausage πŸ™ˆ. It was a lovely brunch and a right little bargain for two people.

Groupon is great for deals local and for some of the bigger cities like London, Manchester etc, I’m always looking but not very often that I buy, but I will have to start looking more. They also do hotel stays and city breaks which I have never booked think I will have to try as some can be great little finds. There was a voucher for Afternoon Tea at Patisserie Valerie, so why not get yourself on Groupon to see what deals they have in your local area

Then I headed to the pub about 12:30 to meet another friend & her boys to watch England vs Panama, so a few Pink Gin’s were in order as it had been a long week! πŸ˜¬πŸ™„

YES!! Back here on the 27th to 29th June.

Can’t wait, needed & long overdue time with The Boy and to celebrate his birthday 24 days late!! πŸ™ˆ

Then a nice meal and drinks on the Wednesday, on the Thursday in the day it’s the start of The Baltic Markets 1st Birthday so possible to head there for a wonder, food & drinks. Not quite sure what to do on the Thursday evening? So any ideas feel free to comment any suggestions πŸ“¨.

OOTN Saturday 2nd June 18

A lovely couple I know John & Emily got married & they invited me to the Evening Reception.

I had no idea what I was going wearing, rummaged in my wardrobe and pulled out 6 possible outfits! I tried on a LBD first but I didn’t feel comfortable felt a little short, the second was a floral dress which I’d brought when I was working at New Look and shock hadn’t been worn πŸ˜†. I felt good when I was wearing it and then had to decide which shoes! Nightmare! 😱

I love the colour and the print in this dress 🧑

Dress β€’ New Look

Shoes β€’ Mango

Bag β€’ Katie Loxton

Thanks for reading peeps πŸ€“

Good Morning & Happy Sunday πŸ˜€

Hope you have all had a lovely weekend and the weather has been good where you are??

I’m out and about today to the Sister’s and to pop and see my Mum. I prefer Sundays to be lazy and I don’t make loads of effort, I know that sounds bad but most of my Sundays are at home where I’m just lounging around in my PJs or joggers and a Tee.

I’ve gone for a casual look with a mixture of high-street & designer. Primark ~ Perfectly Imperfect Tee Β£4 β€’ Skinny Jeans Β£6 Sale

New Look ~ Sandals. Dorothy Perkins ~ Jacket

Kate Spade NYC ~ Bag

I have a reason for wearing this Tee today! I’m making a statement to my older sister as she thinks she is something else!!!

But anyway that’s another story πŸ˜†πŸ˜†

Hope you have enjoyed this post! Hope you have a fab rest of your Sunday.

Lots of Love
