Race For Life.

On 29th of June, my best friend and I will be doing the Race For Life in Brighton to help raise money for Cancer Research.
I will be running for my mother who suffered from cervical cancer 18 years ago.
We're hoping to raise as much money as we can for this fantastic charity.
So if you would like to sponsor us I will love you forever and ever!!
you can donate as much as can/want. Even £1 will help make a difference.
I will of course post a blog about the day for you all so you know I'm not lying!

If you would like to donate please go here.

Thank you and much love to you all.

I'd Rather Be...

It's that time of year again.
Where the internet gets plastered with images from the California music and arts festival Coachella, and almost everyone who isn't there wishes they were.
I am one of the "almost everyone".
The sun , the energy, the live music (there's so many ridiculously good acts that perform there!) everything makes me wish I could be there.

However, Coachella is just as much about the celebs that attend and what they're wearing as it is abut the music.
In the UK festival are wet, muddy and just down right messy. The fashion choices are generally wellies, shorts and t-shirts you don't mind either getting mud or beer on -but that's what makes the festival british.
And I think that's why I -and maybe alot of other brits- are often in quite in awe of Coachella.
It appears this festival releases the inner hippy in everyone. And that intrigues me. Because my love for all things bohemian tends to win. EVERY SINGLE TIME.

There's one girl who's fashion choices for this festival that is on point every single time; Vanessa Hudgens.
High waisted shorts, crochet, tye-dye, bandeaus, flowers, aztec prints and stacks upon stacks of rings and bracelets.
Vanessa's personal style is usually very lovely on daily basis, but when she hits Coachella it's flawless.

One day I hope to go and experience one of the weekends in Palm Springs surrounded by pretty clothes, chill people and fab music. Until then though, I'll stick to the muddiness of the Brit festivities.

Bring on weekend two of this sun fuelled fest!
Who's Coachella fashion is your personal favourite?

Review | Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Polish in Papaya and Greenberry

Pink Stone Ring; Primark, Gold Rings; H&M.
Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Polish in Papaya and Greenberry: £3.99

Is it just me or this is the longest winter ever?! This ridiculously cold weather is driving me crazy! I've been looking for anything that reminds of summer and warmer times and that's when I stumbled upon these beauties. 

I picked up two shades from Barry M's Gelly Hi-Shine nail polish line recently; a gorgeous sea-foam green and a beautiful peachy orange.
Now, I personally usually go for a double layer when it comes to nail polishes, but a single helping seemed to do the trick. The shades are fairly bright- almost neon, but not quite. And there's no need for a top coat due to the all ready shine of the varnish.
I've had these colours on for about a week now, and there's barely any chips in sight (usually by this time there's next to no varnish left on my nails.)

They make me feel all summery- which is great if, like me, you live in England right now.
Plus I've had a ton of compliments on the colours.
Will most likely be buying more of this line. Well done Barry M!
Have you tried any of these polishes yet?
