Inspirational Monday Post

I had this idea to start making up little "inspirational" posts that I could do every Monday for the foreseeable future about maybe something I personally have experience on and can give my personal opinion on.
This is a picture that I took one night when I decided to nip down to the beach on a whim and I still remember the churning feeling I got when I started to walk down the pier. I feel that a lot of times in life we can start to get like this.
Let me explain. There was no clear gain for me when I began to walk down the pier to be honest it just made my legs feel like jelly but as I got further down the pier I realised I would be able to get a really nice photo from it. Life can also be like this sometimes you feel you are getting no where with something but then realise that actually there is a purpose to it all and what originally started out looking like a dead end was really quite far from it.

Glitter Nails

Hey Guys so today I was really itching to go get my nails done but since I am visiting my brother I didn't really know any nail salons or prices. This meant I decided to hit Superdrug and see what I could find.

I love the glitter nail look which is in at the moment so when I spotted these nails I just could  not resist! They are the "Elegant Touch Glitter Twinkle Twinkle" in short and gold. They were also fairly cheap at £7.10 for 24 nails which is two separate applications and when you think of how much they would be at the salon it could come in at about £28+.
As you can see the nails also have red flecks in them which I think just adds to the overall beauty of the nails. the application was fast and easy, they feel comfortable on the nails. The only complaint I really have is I wish they came with actual nail glue rather than the sticky back tabs as I don't feel that they will keep the nails on for more than a few days at a time.

First Impression: Maybelline Color Tattoo 24h

 Hey Guys! Today I bring you a first impressions post... again. I really hope I'm not boring you guys with these posts. Anyways I know I'm a bit behind the times and have only just jumped on the "colour tattoo band wagon" but at least I got there eventually right?
I can't get over how adorable that packaging is!
 I thought I would be a bit more adventurous with my colour choice than I usually am and as much as I wanted to pick up 'on and on bronze' I decided that I would buy 'Metallic Pomegranate' and make this colour work for me.
The cute name
Because these have been out for a while I'm sure will have heard a million times how cute the packaging is and how well they blend out but I will verify it one more time they are pretty awesome. What I love most about these bad boys is that they can go on in a very sheer wash of colour or can be quite bold and make an impact. And I like having that choice.
Beautiful colour isn't it?
On to the colour well I think we can all agree its fabulous! It is a very vampy fall colour and I love it. It's a nice change to move away from the common neutrals and try something a bit more daring as well as it being very complementary on blue eyes. All in all I would say a successful purchase. What do you guys think?
