A new Starbucks recently opened up near me, which I thought was a REALLY awesome idea at the time.. now not so much. I’m not much of a coffee lover, so I didn’t think i’d be going in so much, but I have been obsessed with the Vanilla Bean Creme, Double Chocolate Chip and Strawberries & Cream Frappuccino. Oh My Freakin Goodnesss they are so good… and don’t even get me started on their teas… I honestly don’t even know how I lived a life without them! ♡♡♡
Plus, they introduced a new drink…….. The Coconut Mocha!!! Coconut!!! Coconut!!! I LOVE Coconut!!! It is literally summer in a drink.. so delicious. Oh and those coconut shavings on the creamy goodness that they call whipped cream is heavenly. ♡♡♡♡♡
I’ve also been sooo obsessed with Essie’s Mod Squad and white Converse. But I think every girl is when summer rolls around. Paired with a pair of comfy fitting jeans and a basic tee, the perfect summers outfit is sorted! ♡
Plus I saw this online today, and it’s so freakin cute! Anyone know where you can get these? Little Starbucks for your phone… perfection!! ♡
All I’m saying is Victoria’s Secret NEEDS to be my bedroom, Starbucks my Kitchen and Gucci my closet!

I adore pink nail polish, all year….. It can be worn subtly or as a statement, so I thought I would share some of my favourite pink nail polishes.
My first favourite pink nail polish is by Essie
“guchi muchi puchi”.
It is so pretty and I love it. Just one coat will give a nice sheer pink finish, still showing your natural nail, however two shades will give the most beautiful opaque finish, with a hint of mauve in it. Perfect.
The next pink nail polish that I love is by H&M, in the colour “Pink Macaroni”. This nail polish is surprisingly opaque after the first application. The more you apply, the more vibrant the pink will become.
The next one is by Zoya, in the shade “Micky”. This one is much more vibrant and neon than the previous two, but still so gorgeous. Love it.
The next nail polish is also by Zoya, called ” Erika”. This has some slight hints of glitter in it and is a very pretty and girly pink.
The last pink nail polish that I absolutely adore is this one by Dior. Its a bit on the pricey side but totally worth it. I wasn’t able to find the name of this, as there was no name on the bottle. (I must have scrapped it of or something??? ) However, These two are similar and really pretty….
Enjoy and Good Luck.
Mad About Matte
Matte nail polish is so gorgeous and I am totally in love with it right now. I always wanted my favourite nail polishes to be in matte too, so I could wear both finishes on my nail. Unfortunately, you could only buy the glossy ones so I had to make do with what I had. Then I found these simple ways to create your own, so I made my own, using my all time favourite colours. It’s so fast and easy to do….
There are two ways to create your very own matte nail polish
One uses steam, and the other uses cornstarch. So let’s get started!
Method 1) Steam

This way is so simple and easy. All you have to do is heat up some water, until it starts to boil, or just use boiled water from a kettle. Then pour the boiling water into a bowl and place on a flat surface. Apply your nail colour like you normally would and immediately place your fingertips over the steam face down, to allow the steam to go onto your nails. Now just wait for one minute. The steam will work its magic to create a matte finish to your nail polish. Voila! So easy and looks super cute. Don’t apply a top coat, as this will make your nail polish look shiny and glossy again…. 🙂
Method 2) Cornstarch
Did you now that Corn starch is a secret ingredient for painters of all kinds. Pour a bit of your nail polish colour onto a piece of wax paper, foil, or plate and add just a bit of corn starch to the polish. Be careful to not add too much, just a small amount. Mix with a toothpick and then apply to your nails how you normally would! The finish will be flat and shine-free, very trendy, and you won’t have to buy an extra top coat or special polish.
This picture, as seen at the top shows a really trendy way to apply your new matte nail polish. Simply add a glossy coat to the top, or just the regular nail polish to create this look. It’s almost like a matte french manicure. 🙂 There are just so many ways to style matte nails………
Enjoy and Good luck. xoxo
