School begins soon. Over this bank holiday weekend so far we've visited the city centre for the first time in a month or so, mostly to buy a suit for my brother who is starting sixth form next week. The short genes that run in our family made this very difficult. In other news, his GCSE… Continue reading Thoughts of My Week (#11)
I am typing almost half asleep and am blissfully wondering if I could squeeze in a nap before dinner... I think one of the single biggest factors of my skincare problems is my lack of sleep. The other is hydration, which has been easier to rectify. I get into bed at 10pm but don't fall… Continue reading Weekly Thoughts #10
I seem to have gathered an abundance of green things so I thought I would put them all in one post. It must be the side effect of living in a grey/brick red city area. Months ago, I finished an amazing, green lacy purse-stitch scarf. It was a Wednesday afternoon and I remember wearing it… Continue reading Green Things.

I saw the little display of the collection of colours when I visited the Nail Supplies store with Mom, and I was drawn to them like a magnet. Mom, to… Continue reading Nail Polish that Glows In the Dark? Count Me In!

This is normal, apparently, especially when I have had polish on my nails all year without a break. The pain only lasts a day or two so as… Continue reading New Nails and Charity Shop Buys!

Seeing as it was Twerp's Birthday recently one of her friends bought her an awesome set of presents (awesome considering her Year 7 budget), including: a basic… Continue reading Lips.
It's the half term holidays now. We all know what that means... New nail design! This year, thanks to relaxed sixth form rules regarding nails, everyone has come in with different designs at least every term, if not every week! I am not great at painting my nails, so I wait until the holidays when… Continue reading In which picking Angel Sky & Heaven White as Nail Colours was totally a coincidence.
Tuesday was supposed to be Mom's extra day off work, but a few weeks ago she had accidentally booked in two (really lovely, fortunately) clients and didn't want to cancel on them, because my Mom is also lovely. So instead, she took all three of us kids to the Nail Salon, did those two appointments… Continue reading Up-To-day-te (Up To Date? Today? Geddit? …That was horrendous I’m so sorry)
