Nail Polish: W7 Metallic Planets Collection

I was clothes shopping  in TK Maxx last week and as always, the beauty shelves grabbed my attention. I came across the W7 Metallic Planets Collection. It was the last set there and I had to pick it up. Perfect, as I have been looking for some nice duochrome shades! It was €12.99 for 5 polishes (The pack said the RRP was over €30, which I can't imagine is right, as W7 polishes are pretty cheap.) Still, I picked it up and here's what they look like...

From left to right:
Metallic Jupiter, Metallic Mars, Metallic Mercury, Metallic Saturn & Metallic Venus

Metallic Jupiter: Very dark navy base with shimmery sparkles

Metallic Mars: Pink/purple/wine/gold shade

Metallic Mercury: Dark shade with a pink, purple & gold sparkle

Metallic Saturn: Gold/green metallic with slight shimmer

Metallic Venus: Purple/blue duochrome with some bronze shimmer

Surprisingly, I haven't tried them yet as I've been loving my cupcake nails! I'd keep these for spring as I like to do red, glittery, arty nails over the holiday season... But I will try them soon, as I think Metallic Mars would be a gorgeous shade for Winter!

I'm looking forward to trying them, and I will post pictures and do reviews!

One of my favourite quotes...

Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass; it's about learning to dance in the rain.

MUSIC: Old vs New

An old song popped into my head this morning, and I just HAD to listen to it. I opened the song on YouTube, sat back and listened, and let all the memories flood my mind. I do love Westlife (obviously), Britney (obviously!) and Rihanna, but I just prefer older music, especially from the 60's.

This is one of my favourites.

Ray Peterson - Tell Laura I Love Her

I used to sing these songs with my parents. They're huge fans, and it has passed on to me. This music would be playing all day, and I know the lyrics to so many of these songs from listening to them so much. The thing is, they never get old. I could listen to them all day. These days, if I hear a song maybe 3 times, chances are, I'll get sick of it (unless it's Westlife!) 

It made me realise that music from the 50s to the 80s is SO much better than the noise that people call 'music' these days. The songs were sang with passion, emotion and true heart. It's such a shame to see that real music has faded away... I'm an oldies girl at heart!

These are some of my favourite songs from the old days...
Righteous Brothers - Unchained Melody

Elkie Brooks - Don't Cry Out Loud
(I used to sing this with my mum!)

Mark Dinning - Teen Angel 

Patsy Cline - Crazy

Cat Stevens - The First Cut Is The Deepest
(I used to sing this with my dad!)

Elkie Brooks - Pearl's A Singer

Now you tell me that this isn't real music...

100 Things Challenge - Part 5!

This was a long time coming... Damn my laziness/forgetfulness! But these are the final 20 things I love. Because it's been SO long, I might repeat myself, but I hope not...

Rose rings


Me To You teddies

Coffee (as of late!)

French fancies

Ice lollies


100's and 1000's


Receiving letters

I don't think this is a canopy? I don't know! But this!

Digital SLR cameras - I want this one!!!

Turbie Twist




Trashy magazines

Free stuff!

Funky hats - I have this!

Pepperoni pizza... Mmmmm

I hope you enjoyed 100 things I love!

I'm in love...


Oh my God. I mean, just look at it! I'm a HUGE Hello Kitty fan, and I already have 3 Hello Kitty bags... But I NEEDED this! It's part of my Christmas present from my fiancé and it's from eBay. It cost around €20, which I think is pretty amazing.

It's faux white leather, and the inside is white too, but the zip is baby pink with a gold zipper pull. There is loads of room inside this tote bag, which I love and I carry a lot around with me, so it's handy!

On the top of Hello Kitty's head, she has her trademark bow, and this one is a huge baby pink 3D bow! I love it! The back has a pretty design, which says Hello Kitty, and has a picture of her head and 2 hearts.

If you're looking for a cute tote shoulder bag, this is the one!

I have a feeling this Christmas will be amazing!
