Hasta La Vista Baby!

Hi lovelies!
Firstly let me apologise for not blogging this week! As you know I'm going away tomorrow (yay!) so I've been doing last minute organising. To be honest not alot has really happened this week that I felt was really blog worthy, plus most of my clothes have been packed away in my suitcase the past few days! While I'm away sunning it up in the Costa Del Sol I promise to take lots of outfit pics and I'm sure there'll be tales of plenty to blog about when I get back!


This is where I'm going to be staying for the next week! It's my aunty and uncles villa. It's a lovely little place about 30 minutes from Valencia, in a rural area, away from all the big cities and tourist hot spots. I really like places like this, it's a great chance to really soak up the Spanish culture.

Where's your favourite holiday destination?

I hope you all have a lovely week! If you're not going anywhere over the next week, I hope this British weather sorts itself out for you!

Lots of love,

Laura xoxo

OPI Sparkle-icious & a Declumping Tip!

Hi my loves,

This is just a short post for you today. Yesterday when I went to paint my nails in my all time favourite Opi Sparkle-icious, I was devastated to find it had all clumped together. So much so that It just looked awful. I refused to throw it away, so took to google to see if it could be saved. I found a few suggestions but the most popular one was to add a small amount of nail polish remover in the the pot and shake really well, and it actually worked!! The reason nail polishes clump is because the chemicals in them dry out and by adding nail polish remover, this puts back some of the chemicals that have been lost. Cue lovely sparkly nails!

Another suggestion was to buy nail polish thinner, but I guess the nail varnish remover is a cheaper and faster alternative as it's something you've probably already got in the house. I found this really useful, so thought you all might too :)

Have you got any good make up saving tips? I would love to hear them!

Hope your all having a fab weekend!

Lots of love,

Laura xoxo

You're never fully dressed without a smile!

Hi lovelies!!

This post is going to be a bit different from normal. It's basically inspired by how hard and hectic life can be sometimes, and how every now and again, we just need to sit back and remember that we all have things to smile about! I don't know about you, but for some reason I don't like Wednesdays. It's a bit like some people don't like Mondays lol I don't really know why I don't like them, it's just one of those weird things. So, I've put together a few favourite photo's, that always manage to put a smile on my face!

I hope at least one of them made you smile :) All photo's were found via

Hope you all have a lovely day!


Laura xoxo
