Something I don't think I've ever mentioned on here is my love for painting my nails. I pretty much always have them painted and of course they have to match the season we're in (ps I'm super excited for dark nails and glitters for autumn). A few months ago, I decided to get acrylics. This seemed like an amazing idea at the time, and I absolutely loved them. Since at my job I need to lift boxes of books and heavy stacks of newspapers, they probably weren't the most practical for that. After about 2 months of getting infills, I decided to take them off myself at home. This was possibly the worst idea I've ever had. Yes I got my nails off and it felt amazing to have my own, short nails back - but my nails were also so damaged from the acrylic, that they'd break instantly. I've always had strong nails that I could grow quite long, and after the acrylic, my nails went soft and would bend easily.

Alex Silver PR got in contact with me to let me know about Leighton Dennys' new halloween range and sent a couple over for me to try. Within those was the 'Rock Solid One Coat Strengthening Treatment'.

I have to be honest - I've never been one to use treatments on my nails. I just let them grow, and break off naturally. After the trauma my nails must've had from all the acrylic, I thought I'd give it a try. The first time I wore it, I applied it to clean nails and wore it as a clear polish, and the second, I wore it under a colour polish.

This polish has restored the strength in my nails again after only 2 weeks of use. It has honestly worked amazingly for me!

Leighton Denny 'Rock Solid' Nail treatment retails for £12 and can be bought here!

Have you tried anything from Leighton Denny before?

I have to be honest, makeup becomes one of my least favourite tasks once Summer comes around. Spending 30 minutes putting makeup on that will just end up leaving you greasy and shiny in a couple of hours? No thanks... When I do opt to put makeup on, I have to make sure that I'm protecting my skin from the sun. Here are my 3 favourite SPF foundations for the summer!

1. L'Oreal True Match Foundation - This is the heaviest coverage out of the 3, so I usually only reach for this on special occasions that require more makeup. This one contains SPF 17.

2. Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation - This one is by far my favourite out of the 3. I have used this foundation, on and off for about 5 years now. I'm always trying new ones, but I always end up coming back to this one after a couple of weeks. This one is a medium coverage, with an SPF 20, making it my perfect day-to-day wear foundation!

3. Clarins HydraQuench Tinted Moisturiser - This is my 'it's too hot let's just slap some makeup on' foundation. I am currently using a tester, but when I use this, I use very little product because I am just aiming to even out my skin tone, not cover or conceal. This one has SPF 15 in, making it perfect for the days you want to protect your skin, but still look fresh faced!

I am a self confessed Primark addict. They have so many, pretty - yet affordable items that always fit the newest trends.

I recently picked up this little beauty for £25. It is the perfect light jacket for Summer! It is in a beautiful blue-grey shade, made from an incredibly soft faux suede material and finished with silver hardware. I've been adding this jacket to plain outfits that need jazzing up slightly!

My favourite way to wear this, is over an all black outfit -My black ripped jeans, a black slouchy t-shirt and white plimsolls. It adds a pop of colour and makes the outfit a little more fun! I've also recently been adding my new sunnies from urban outfitters to make it look a bit more styled and put together!

I know this post is very short - but I just wanted to show my best find from Primark in a while!

I'm always wanting to change the decor of my room. Having a clean and pretty bedroom is one of the main factors in keeping me motivated! I have collaborated with Blind Hut to create this blog post on my take on Summer interior trends to create my dream bedroom!

Block Colours

As you can tell, I am a fan of mixing patterns. I tend to mix pretty pink patterns with bold black and white prints. I added the pink 'plate' style pattern with a variation of black and white cushions, such as  the geometric one from Ikea (middle back), the 'R' initial cushion (gift) and the stitched chevron cushion (Primark). To break up these patterns, I added 2 dusty pink velour square cushions from Primark, with a rose gold foiled square cushion to add some glam!

Product Displays

I always have my perfumes all lined up and on show. At the minute, I have them next to my new Ion light up turntable which I snagged in the HMV sale for £50 a few weeks back! I'm in love with it! I always like to keep luxury product carrier bags, such as this one from Harvey Nicholls. Not only do they look pretty, but they can also be a discreet way to store boring items. For example, this one holds paracetamol and ibuprofen in case I feel ill during the night! Plus, they're free when you buy makeup and I'm sure everyone has some lying around the house! If you don't - it's another excuse to buy that lipstick you've been wanting...

Ok, so I'm completely aware that you can see the washing on the line outside the window, but please ignore it! I always have items on my windowsill because I think it looks so pretty. I currently have some of my book collection which I have yet to read, with an hourglass I bought in the BHS sale for £3 (similar here) with a Clementine and Honey candle from Primark, and one of the candles from a Next set I received as a gift. I also have my cacti from Ikea, the Daisy Picking and Seaside Stroll Zoella Lifestyle candles and a hanging plant from Wilkinsons!

I'm absolutely in love with my room at the minute and incredibly happy that I managed to save and get most of my items from Primark Home!

Ever since the new Benefit brow products were released last year, I've wanted to try some of them. I finally got around to trying the 'Ka-Brow'.

I've been using this for about a month now, and I'm absolutely in love with it. It comes with an angled brush which makes it incredibly easy to apply. It isn't waxy, so it doesn't drag across the brows or become very patchy or hard to build. With its' cream formula, it becomes incredibly easy to build from a natural to bold.

One thing I have noticed is that a little product goes a long way. You barely need to put any pressure on the product with the brush to pick up enough for a strong application. Once you apply, you only have to dip the brush at least once or twice to complete the rest of the brow. With its 24 hour wear, it doesn't smudge or transfer, which for me, being I draw on a new brow shape with this product. I want to make sure the shape I draw on will not smudge off throughout the day.

I have this product in shade no. 5, which is a dark brown shade. They have a really good choice of colours, taking into account all the different undertones. There are more hair colours than 'Light' and 'Dark', and Benefit have really hit the nail on the head to make sure they provide colours for everyone!

I love this product, and hope to test some more out in the future!

Have you tried any of the Benefit brow products?
