Review: Nails Inc Lottie Tomlinson Good As Gold Paint Can

Hello lovelies, I hope you are well. I've been in a bit of a funk this week and didn't feel like blogging, so didn't force it and now I'm feeling much more keen to get stuck in. Starting with a beauty post and a really cool item, this Nails Inc Paint Can by Lottie Tomlinson in Good As Gold*. nails inc lottie tomlinson paint can
Good As Gold is a limited edition shade (so snap it up now if you fancy it) and it's precisely what you'd expect of such a name, gold! The colour swatch on the can is a terrific indicator of the colour inside as you'll see in the photo below. nails inc lottie tomlinson limited edition good as gold paint can

Irregular Choice Alice: Who In The World Am I? (Stripes)

irregular choice who in the world am i? striped ankle boot
Hola chickadees! Sad news. Well not entirely. This is the last pair of Alice shoes I have to review from the second Irregular Choice collection. Boooo! Fear not though, I have news of more (at the bottom of this post) along with links to all 10 (yes, really) posts so far and guess what's happening on Friday? Cinde-freaking-rella launches. Whooop! Sorry I'm wired just now, I had a good day yesterday where I got out (shopping), wore makeup (hell yeah) and actually enjoyed myself and we all know that's been years overdue, but anyways, shoes. Last week it was the sequins version of these Who In The World Am I? boots (please let me shorten to the only slightly less complicated WITWAI? from now on) and once more, I'll reiterate that I see absolutely no reason why you can't own both and not in a greedy-moo way. If you like and can afford both, then it's not something I'd feel 'guilty' about. They are different colours, different finishes, same style but really different in style if you get me.

Irregular Choice Cinderella: Sparkling Slipper

irregular choice disney cinderella sparkling slipper preview Today I have the final teaser for the Irregular Choice Cinderella collection.  A couple of weeks ago we saw a cat and mouse chase with Lucifer and Gus. Then last week, Bibbidi Bobbidi captured the magical moment where the Fairy Godmother turned a pumpkin into a carriage.  Today is the turn of Sparkling Slipper inspired by the famous glass slipper. A monumental moment in the movie, this is the only remaining magical object after the clock strikes 12 and the one that takes Cinderella from rags to riches, as she proves the shoe fits.

Paperchase Purr Maids: Filing Units

Last week I began showing you my giant Paperchase haul(s) and I'm back with another Purr Maid product for you today. The filing units £10 took a while to come out online, but my sister had seen them in our local Paperchase and said I had to have them. I saw a couple of photos of them promoting the Purr Maid range and they did look rather fabulous. I eventually got them online and they are currently back in stock if you're interested.

Irregular Choice Alice: Who In The World Am I? (Sequins)

irregular choice who in the world am i? boots
Alongside the Lost Your Muchness knee high boots from the second Irregular Choice Alice collection, was an ankle boot, in two colourways. Now if you thought the green My Cup Of Tea were too similar to One Lump Or Two? from the first collection, you'll have no such inner quarrel with yourself over Who In The World Am I? You could easily wear both, without someone noting "don't you already have those?", they are just so different to one another. The style is identical, but because of the materials used, they are like chalk and cheese. I actually liked both, so got the two and today I have the sequin version to show you. irregular choice who in the world am i? green sequins

Paperchase Purr Maids: Ideas and Planner Journal

paperchase purr maids collection
You may recall last year I went a bit Paperchase crazy with their fabulous unicorn themed Pony Party and Wild Aztec ranges. I still don't think I finished reviewing and photographing all those bits for you as I kept adding to my stash! I had the PP mid year diary, which I'd been getting a lot of use out of for blogging purposes and was a bit worried that it was coming to an end this summer, so was on the look-out for a replacement. My sister spotted an updated version with a sweet little mermaid cat on it and immediately got it for me. Then we investigated and discovered an entire mahoosive collection was coming out and I spent an absolute fortune when it did and bought almost every single thing (probably a 1/3 shown above). I took photos of most of it (months ago), then fell ill and never got round to showing you them (I'd planned on doing one thing at a time). The collection was aimed at "back to school", but some of it is still available so I thought now that I have the time, I'd run through some or all of the things. I don't know how annoying it is for you, seeing stuff that you might not manage to track down, so I'll stick with the items still online for now. Beginning with this wonderful little Ideas and Planner Journal £8. paperchase purr maids ideas journal

Irregular Choice Alice: My Cup Of Tea

Hello, hope you're all well tonight. It's been a few weeks since my last Irregular Choice review as I've been struggling to fit everything in and these types of posts are rather time-consuming.  I usually dread the editing process (let's face it, it's pretty tedious), but it's been weeks since I took these photos, so I was enjoying looking at these beautiful shoes and their tea party setting again.  You may recall my first Alice review (here) was of the pink version of these shoes, My Cup Of Tea. Already owning two pairs of teapot heels from the first collection, I was only allowing myself to buy one of the two colourways that launched this time.  I was drawn to the blue immediately, but I ordered the pink as well, only to see what they looked like and to check sizing really.  I was adamant I was only keeping one, but I really fell in love with parts of the pink (which I'll go into later) so I had a hard decision to make.
