Tribal nail wraps

Oh now look at that... After a long shopping spree in Exeter's high street I stumbled over these nail wraps in Urban Outfitters on Saturday. I love all things aztec and tribal at the moment so had to pick a pack up despite a slightly concerning price tag of £7 (sorry, but it is just stickers, right?)

Anyway, here's what it looks like:

I decided to apply the nail wraps to two fingers on each hand and paint the rest of my nails in Leighton Denny Plush Pink nail varnish which I think looks quite cute. I am in love with that nail varnish by the way - total beauty must have!

The nail wraps were easy enough to apply: First you lightly file the top of your nail and disinfect it with the supplied aceton wipe and then apply the sticker. Once applied, you fold the nail wrap over and shape your nail using the supplied nail file.

I think it looks nice but you can notice that it's stuck on so I am not getting too excited about it. The nail wraps are said to last up to 10 days, so far it's been 2 days and I have noticed a few of the ends coming off a little - the wear is not too noticeable yet but I'd estimate a max of another days wear before I need to replace the stickers which is a bit of a downer. I'd have hoped to at least reach 5 days if it promises a total of 10.

Anyway, for the time being it compliments my current bohemian inspired wardrobe so that's good enough. :)

Hello :)

So, I guess this is my first ever blog post... I won't make any promises that this will be some sort of eye opening, revolutionary blog - it most likely won't meet your expectations, in fact, you might be reading this post in a couple of years time. I wonder what my blog will be like in a couple of years time.  Part of the reason I have started blogging today is because I like the idea of having a little place of my own where I can share some of my thoughts, experiences, little addictions and meet some interesting people in the process.

I guess, blogging, is not just about the blogger behind the words of the world wide web, it is about talking to people all around the world about the things you are passionate about, things you have in common with those presumed strangers who might stumble across your little virtual haven and be intrigued by some small parts of the content you choose to share with them.

I would like to share my favourite things with you - hence the name of this blog. So, what are my favourite things?

Well, there's my love for Fashion and Beauty, then my passion for travelling and reading, music, my dog... oh gosh that would probably be way too much to try and squeeze into one tiny little blog, right?
Ah well, okay then, scrap the music and dog stuff (I would just flood you with endless stories anyway) and let's concentrate on Fashion, Beauty, Travel and Books. After all, everyone loves those, right?

So, let's see what we've got in common. :o)

In the meantime, here some pictures to tell you a little bit more about me:
