The N Case Files

Afternoon lovelies


As many of you know by now I am totally obsessed with anything related to nails, nail art and nail polishes - as I already have a big stash of lots of pretty and sparkly nail goodies myself. But when I opened up an unexpected parcel that came through the door a couple of weeks ago I was stupidly excited all over again, as I received The N Case Files from URBANISTA. URBANISTA have recently been part of T4OTB 10th anniversary and a wide range of celebrities love the brand too, including: Rita Ora, Little Mix, Abi Phillips (Hollyoaks) and Tyler James.

The N Case Files come in a pack of 5 and retail at £3.99 which I peronsonally think is such a bargain as I sometimes spend more than that on just one nail file. Being in a pack of 5 handy sized files makes it easier to pop these little beauties anywhere, for instance in my handbag, work drawer and in my make up bag too. With the N Case Files being bright neon ombre effect these are perfect for finding at the bottom of your handbag and for standing out from the nail nail files you may have - they sure do for me. These are little beauties to add to my ever growing nail collection and they are really easy to hold and use, as some nail files can be too small and fiddly to hold and some can be a little too big and chunky to get around my small nails.

Models Own Collection

25 comments
Afternoon lovelies

For today's post I thought I'd stick with something nail related, as I haven't blogged much lately about nails or my collection. After my recent purchase of Models Own Disco Mix at the weekend it seemed to blend in well with my ever growing collection of Models Own polishes, so I thought I'd share my collection (so far) with you all.

First of all, I hadn't even purchased a Models Own nail polish until they had their 50% off sale and ever since I can't seem to not buy another to add to the collection, I tend to wait until they have offers on either via their website or in Boots.

So in my collection so far I have 15 beautiful shades and I love them all and have used them a number of times, some more than others of course.

From left to right we have: 25 Carat Gold, Golden Peach, Fuzzy Peach, Zest A Peal, Bubblegum, Pink Sorbet, Lili's Pink, Pink Fizz, Coral Reef, Scarlet Sparkle, Top Turquoise, Indian Ocean, Disco Mix, Ibiza Mix and Juicy Jules

Without a doubt my favourites from the Models Own collection that I own have got to be Pink Sorbet, Indian Ocean, Golden Peach and Ibiza Mix. 

Which is your favourite Models Own polish? Which do you recommend for me to buy next?

If you would like to see a NOTD post with any of these Models Own polishes please leave a comment and I will do that no problem at all.

Smile of the Week #37

Hello sweeites

I hope you've all had a lovely weekend? I shall pop a post up very soon of what I got up to over the weekend, along with a mini haul to show you as well. I am now back to work, but only for today and tomorrow then I am off until next Tuesday - I sure do love saving my holidays for the summer. I have a lot of planning to do this week for Liam's birthday celebrations that are taking place from Friday, so there will be some posts coming up on those events too, I think I am more excited than he is to be honest.

Back onto today's post, as it is Monday I have a lovely smile of the week for you all today.

I always love picking up a good book and getting lost into a whole different world and letting the imagination run wild, so when I saw this super cute photo I knew it was perfect for a good old smile.

Smile of the Week #36

Afternoon lovelies

So it is Monday once again, but I'm not really going to moan about it as I am only working 3 days this week, yes thats right I will have a wonderful 4 day weekend, bring it on. Over the next couple of months I have got quite a lot of time off of work, so I will be having long weekends and even full weeks off of work - WOW - which means more blogging and lots of lovely day trips and outings to be shared, some of which I am TOO excited about.

For some reason this weekend I have been listening to a lot of old bands/artists on YouTube that I used to love in my early teenage years and I've been singing well into the early hours of the morning to Busted, Daniel Bedingfield, Big Brovaz, S Club 7 and the Spice Girls to name a handful. 

So when I saw this weeks smile of the week it seemed to fit in with the theme of listening to music in general.

I believe that this is seriously SO true, this weekend I have been happy and been enjoying the old songs, but then when feeling sad or unhappy I always seem to listen to songs that have a meaning or a lyric that stands out with how I am feeling.

What is your go to song when you are feeling happy and sad?

Hello sweeties

So I am back with another smile of the week for you to all enjoy.

I hope you've all had a lovely weekend, did you all get up to some exciting things, if so please share below with a comment. I had a super shopping spree on Saturday with my mum and then a lovely chilled out night with Liam, Sunday was spent doing a few house jobs, catching up on blogging and of course relaxing, well that is what Sunday's were made for right?

I always believe that everything happens for a reason in life, no matter if it is something amazing and we want to share it with the rest of the world or something terrible and that we never want to talk about again. So finding this weeks smile of the week is quite fitting with the saying 'everything happens for a reason', it sure did make me smile when I saw it and had to share with you all too.
