Chanel Le Vernis Nail Colour - 08 Pirate

As I'm writing this, I've just come home from college to lovely little parcel! Recently the lovely Jessica reached 100 followers and to celebrate she gave away this Chanel Nail Colour in Pirate, I was very lucky and won! So as always, i'd thought i'd share it with you guys.

Most people that know me know that I love 2 things: Chanel and red nails. All I ever have on my nails is red and Chanel is just such a beautiful and iconic label, so naturally, me and this product got on like storm.
As expected I absolutely adore the colour, it's a gorgeous deep dark red, and i can actually understand why they called it pirate. I usually wear a lighter red, but i have definitively fallen in love with this. The shade does tend to change a little bit though, depending on what kind of light you're in (i used natural light to take the photo's) and how many coats you've put on, i put on two, with no base coat or topcoat, just to test out the wear. I have to say... i'm so satisfied with this! It's lasted around 5 days with only some minor chips at the tips of my nails that are barely noticeable, and i'm sure if you wore a top coat with this, it'd be fine. I do really recommend this, lovely colour and incredible wear- better than any nail varnish i've ever tried before, what more could you want from a Nail Colour? I've also got compliments from people commenting on how shiny and glossy this looks, which is lovely. The only thing that's a little bit off putting is the hefty price tag it comes with, it retails at £17.50 from Boots, but if you can afford to splash the cash, then go for it, it's worth it. If you are interested, but this stretches the budget a little bit, I've heard Revlon do really great dupes of Chanel nail colour, and i've also seen a similar colour to this that Rimmel have done recently done.
I hope you guys enjoyed reading this, what's your favourite Nail Colour/Polish?

Come on baby be with me, so happily.

Hey lovelies, I thought I'd let you all know about a certain album that I'm really enjoying at the moment! It might not be for everyone, but those people who usually say "I like all kinds of music" like myself, will definitely enjoy this! 

It's called Midnight Memories by One Direction, which i'm sure most of you guys must will be familiar with, and I have to say- I've joined the hype and I'm absolutely loving them! They seem like such lovely guys and I've always really liked them in general, but their music is honestly really good- it's definitely a very rock-y kind of sound in it's roots, but it's still very fun and very pop like. 
My favourite song off the album has to be Happily!  I could listen to it on repeat for hours and I always catch myself having a huge smile on my face when I listen to them; all of their songs are just so incredibly fun, young, energetic and they make you feel good! If you've not listened to Midnight Memories yet, but like One Direction or if you're not quite sure If it'd be up your street, just go for it, have a listen, I think you'll be pleasantly surprised! 

*warning: by the end of the album you may turn an insy bit fangirl and have a new found guilty pleasure*

If like me, you're already in love with the Album, what's your favourite song that they've done?

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Image source: https://weheartit.com/entry/32217565
I hope you've had an absolutely wonderful Christmas and an incredible start to the new year(and if not every single day is a second chance). It's the first blog post of 2014!!!

I just thought I would talk you through my New Years eve, it was just really really nice. I usually spend New Years with my family, but I spent it with my friends instead. There was about six of us and we just hung out, danced a lot (6 man party h o l a), we played this game called taboo  aswell- if you haven't played it, you have not lived! It's genuinely really fun and I'm one if those people that gets pretty competitive so it was great for me haha! I'm such a bubbly, naturally very excitable person, so I absolutely love the Christmas-New year season, it's so exciting, positive and just a really kind, good willed, fun time of year, which are things I absolutely adore anyway! 
Also during new year, people tend to make resolutions, I don't usually do them, but I have officially been conformed like the masses... Here they are, a mix of generic and personal in no particular order:
  1.  Blog about what I find important- I'm really excited for this one, I've been really sloppy with my content, but keep an eye out, things are going to get seriously cool.
  2. Exercise more, aim for 2 or 3 days a week for 1 hour each session- everyone has this as a resolution, but I'm possibly the most unfit person ever- I get a stitch running up the stairs... I don't think this is a lot to aim for, so I kept it pretty realistic.
  3. Read my bible and pray every day- this is a bit more personal a lot you won't have this, but I'm a Christian, I love Jesus and I want to have more of God in my life, because I think he's pretty cool.
  4. Be more generous at home - I really think it's important that I make more of an effort at home, I've been really lazy this year and I just want to pull my weight more, which links in to the next one.
  5. Do one random act of kindness every day, no matter how small- I love this one, I'm a big believer in the power of just being kind, just little acts of kindness can change lives and I think that's beautiful.
  6. Try harder to make things work out, take that responsibility- This ones a bit more personal, so I'm not going to go in to it, but just in general taking a lead and being responsible.
  7. Use my frees at college wisely- Somehow I don't think I'm going to keep this one, I like doing I what to do too much rather than what I need to do. As I'm writing this there's a history essay that was due in 3 weeks ago which I haven't done, plus I've not revised for my mocks which are in a week- you get the idea.
  8. Know what i want to do with my life by the end of the year - ahh scary, this ones a biggy! Yeah basically, I have ideas about what I want to do, but I'm not sure- hey maybe I'll have made a post of where I'm going with my life this year.
I love you guys so much thankyou for following my blog and reading my posts,  I've had an incredible 2013, i feel so incredibly blessed, here's to an amazing 2014
