My Nails of The Day.

Hello beautiful ladies and gentlemen,

How are you all wonderful people doing?
I know that it has been a while since I last posted something - Yes, SHAMEFUL!
But I have somehow lost the inspiration to write. I've been just laying around on my bed watching sad movies - In other words *Procrastinating*

I have a post idea in my mind and I've been writing some of it as well but I'm not sure whether I'd post it or not, then I guess will decide later on. 

Okay so let's get started with today's post. I am going to throw it out door immediately - I am not a professional nail technician, I wish I was but I'm not. I just do my nails the way I like them and the how I think they look good. I am not a big fan of acrylic nails and surely not a fan of the pointed type of nails - the Halloween is over now! Haha.


So, as you can see my nails look horrible. This is because I don't take care of them as much as I used to do before. They have a yellowish color - this is because I don't leave them to breathe some fresh air. This is also because recently (4years ago) I started to stay away from dairy products because whenever I drink some milk, I will turn into Sebastian the crab because of my rash. Therefore my nails haven't been taking enough calcium to be white as possible. #TheStoryOfMyLife


The first thing that I do is file them because sometimes they don't grow as neatly as I want them to be and turn them into a smooth box looking shape. 


Immediately after since I have the yellow problem, I use the Inglott Nail Whitener to make them look as decent as possible.


This is what I exactly do once every week before I paint my nails. 

Now this is the exciting part because you get to choose the color that you want to paint your nails with and the pattern that you want. It's been a while since I last did something like this -  around 5 - 6 years, and so I thought I'd give it a try. 

I just painted the tip of my nails with the MaxFactor Glossfinity in shade 50 Candy Rose, just because I wanted to spice them up a bit.


Then I finished up by applying a cheap but a great Essence gel-look Topcoat. And this is the finished look.


I hope that you like the way I did my nails and would try something similar. It's quite easy and they have a very sharp and clean look that you can wear anywhere - for everyday, for a special occasion, for a night out, anywhere you would like to go. 

Write your thoughts in the section down below and tell me if you like this look or not! I would love to hear your opinions. 

Stay Beautiful

A Valentine's Day Gift Guide for HIM

Hello beautiful ladies and gentlemen,

As promised in the previous post I also made this little post about what one can give for the boyfriend, fiancee, husband or friend on Valentine's Day. 

These are some of the things that I would choose from to give to my boyfriend but again if you are alone as I am and you're a guy and want to buy something for yourself feel free to do so. In my opinion Valentine's Day should be celebrated by everyone - single or not! 

1. Ray-Ban Clubmaster Sunglasses - £125
You can never go wrong with a pair of sunglasses - they are stylish and usable unless you live in a place where there is no sun, then this probably will not be good for you unless he likes to wear sunglasses at night.

2. Ted Baker Antlers Medium Brogue Notebook - £10.83
He is terrible with organising his appointments, or he likes keeping a notebook in his bag, or he just like notebooks? This is the notebook for him. It is so lovely, manly and yes, stylish! Maybe you can even write him something in it - how much he means to you and how much you love him, so that he can always remember of you when he opens his notebook!

3. Topman Dune Brown Leather Brogues - £99
Every guy loves shoes whether he admits it or not and you can never go wrong with a pair of classic brown brogues. They are wearable for all seasons, day and night so you know that he will get a wear out of them.

4. Topman Tan Leather Backpack - £60
Guys need to carry things with them as well, maybe not make up as we do, but you know some man stuff. This is suitable even for those guys who are still in college or university. I think that it has the perfect size and he can put a large amount of stuff in there.

5. Marc by Marc Jacobs Henry Chrono - $225
Everyone needs to check the time every now and then right, so why can't he do so with a Marc Jacobs watch. It is gold and we know how metal watches are so fashionable right now. In my opinion this is the perfect gift that you could give him but I think that it's not in everyone's budget so you can always give him a dupe of this if you would like to.

6. Asos Denim Shirt in Long Sleeve with Acid Overdye - £25
I'm in love with these kind of shirts, I think that it gives the outfit a bit of something.

7. Peter Werth Laptop Case - £32
This one is on sale right now so hurry up! Everyone needs a laptop cover and this one looks amazing and it's a bargain so you know what you should do.

8. Kigu Tigger Onesie - £75
It doesn't matter how old is he, every human being should own a onesie whether it is fun as this one or just plane. So if he doesn't own one of these, invest him one of these - he will love it!

9. Ted Baker Rowrund Tile Pattern Tie - £45.83
Men look smokin' hot in a suit - that is a given! But they are sometimes a bit boring with ties, so why don't you spice up his suit a bit with this amazing patterned tie. He will love it.

10. Ted Baker Grooming Gift Set - £49
This includes every single thing that a man needs in his life to groom himself. It includes a razor with replacement razor blades, nail clippers, scissors, nail file, and some other things. This gift is cute and thoughtful.

11. Ted Baker Nubran Grained Leather Briefcase - £204.17
If he is a mature person and wants something more sophisticated this is the briefcase for him. If I were a man I would definitely love it if my partner would give me this briefcase! It is so spacious and have a printed lining in it which makes it more cool.

12. Ted Baker Drummon Brogue Bi-fold Card Wallet - £55
Men love their wallets and this Ted Baker one looks amazing and very useful. It also has a cute quote where he can put his notes in - Ted says "You get out what you put in".

So these were some of the gifts that I think he would like to receive. But obviously everyone has a different opinion so don't hesitate to write your thoughts below.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Stay Beautiful,

A Valentine's Day Gift Guide for HER.

Hello beautiful ladies and gentlemen,

Valentine's Day is in twelve days and most of you don't know what to get for your wife, fiancee, girlfriend or friend and leave for the last minute and start panicking because you don't know what to get her.

Yes guys (or even girls) this post is directed to you!

But if you're a girl with no man in your life (like me) you can still buy some of these gifts and surprise yourself - I know that this is what's going to happen to me haha.

1. Mini Mac Bag by Rebecca Minkoff - $195
Actually you can buy her any bag that you would like to from Rebecca Minkoff because every bag that she has is amazing and so chic. This one in particular is mint, it is made from leather, has studded metal feet and polished hardware, removable straps and the zip top opens to a polka-dot lined interior. It is also the perfect size because although it is not the biggest bag that you could buy her, she can easily stuff things in there without struggling so much.

2. Chanel Beige Caviar Jumbo Classic Flap Bag
Okay, this one is for those who always bought diamonds for her and now she does not want them anymore because she has a lot (but most probable if she owns too much diamonds then she owns too much designer bags, but you know what I mean!). Well, you can never go wrong with a Chanel bag. This is available in gold and silver metal and costs around $5,500 so you know it's not in everyone's budget but it sure is one lovely and luxuries bag.

3. CHLOE Chloe Eau de Parfum - $75
If she does not own this perfume already, you must get her one. This fresh, smooth floral fragrance evokes sublime powdery rose. The effect from it is a chic, comfortable and entirely addictive. Also the packaging of this perfume is to die for - stunningly beautiful. So if she likes a flowery scent, this is the perfume for her. 

4. Tod's Suede Slippers - $445
If she is searching for a pair of flats you should consider getting her these amazing slippers. I know that it might not be an affordable purchase for everyone but if you have enough money or money is not even a problem, these slippers are the perfect flats for her. They are also available in blue and black.

5. Ted Baker Maisa Large Bow Wash Bag - £29
She has a lot of make up or just a make up lover? Then if she does not already own this, you can buy her this wash bag to put her everyday make up in. It is quite affordable and comes in four different colors - so just pick her favorite color and buy it for her. She will adore it!

6. La Petite Rose Flask and Cup - £12.95
She loves drinking hot drinks? This is perfect for her because she can take it everywhere with her and keep warm and also the flask itself is so cute - she will definitely love it.

7. Happy Jackson Gems of Insight Notebook - £8
If she likes to be organised, planning her weeks or just writes notes then this is more than perfect for her. Any notebook would do but this is a cute little one which is also cheap.

8. Too Faced Sweethearts Perfect Blush in Something About Berr - £26
This thing is pink and in the shape of a heart. What do you want more? It has the prettiest blush shade that every girl would love on her cheeks.

9. Too Faced The Chocolate Bar Eye Palette - $49
A chocolate bar looking palette? What else do you need? This is an eye palette with 16 matte and shimmer shadows with real chocolate scent.

10. Asos Clip On iPad Case in Exclusive Cloud Print - £15
This cute little iPad case is a nice gift for her if she wants to protect her lovely iPad. If she does not have an iPad or she already has a nice cover for it, you can buy her any tech cover for example an iPhone cover or a laptop cover. Protection is better than cure! haha.

11. Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture Vernis a Levres Glossy Stain - £24
Just get her one of these or both of them, she would be more than happy. Trust me!

12. Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 Instant Film Camera - £69.99
I am definitely going to surprise myself with one of these. They are so cute and you can keep the printed picture as soon as you take it. Perfect gift ever!

13. Live Laugh Love Triple Photo Frame - £15
This is one thoughtful gift. You can just pick three pictures of you too and put them in these three frames. She will definitely like it because it is simple and you actually put in some thought.

So those were some of the gifts that you can give to your special one but if you don't want to buy her anything from these or anything at all, you can just buy her some flowers that she likes, make her a romantic dinner or take her to a fancy restaurant and you can just write her a love letter letting her know how much she means to you and how much you love her.

I hope that this post was helpful to all of you and girl if you want anything from the things I mentioned, just email this post to him or give him the link of this by mistake or you can just email it to his friend so that he will tell him what you would like to receive. Haha!

Also, stay tuned for a Valentine's Day Gift Guide for HIM. It will be here in no time.

I wish you all a lovely Valentine's Day and those who have no Valentine, just dress up nicely and go out with your friend, who knows maybe you'll meet him or her on that night ;).

Stay Beautiful,
