Down in the dumps....

Well, I have to say that I'm feeling pretty rubbish again today. Went to the doctors- he thinks I am having "tension headaches" as apposed to migraines. What this means for me is taking lots of painkillers and sitting around with a heated lavender bag around my neck. Far from glamorous....

I was excited to get an email from Models Own this week telling me about their new shatter effect nail polishes. I already have a black one by Barry M but these new ones come in awesome colours!



I just know that I'm going to want to buy all of these! I then discovered from Gem Fatale's blog that they have produced loads of new colours in a range called Models Own Pro - available exclusively at Boots here: http://www.boots.com/en/Models-Own-Pro-Nail-Polish_1189616/?cm_mmc_o=-uubkbzfwlCjCKww5kbELCjCvi%20i9%20niioCjCC

They are £8 each which is still fairly reasonable and they have something in them which will help your nails grow! I need that at the moment as mine are still splitting like crazy - another sign of my ill health this year!

I'm continuing my girl crush on Rachel Bilson and her style with this picture:


One of the reasons I picked her out is that she is only about 5ft tall like me! Unfortunately she is quite a bit thinner and a lot more gorgeous but at least I have something to aspire to! She wears a lot of blazers and tailored outfits so I think my wardrobe is going to be getting a major overhaul. I particularly need basics like a plain white t-shirt and some new dark denim jeans that actually fit - hard to find when you're a short ass!

I might even have to start shopping in some new places - Oasis seems like it's aimed at the slightly more sophisticated market, although I usually have to pick shops for their price rather than their style. French Connection and Kookai look like alternatives - although again they can be pretty pricey....Maybe Next is the way forward? I have only ever bought one thing from there and that was years ago!

This Oasis dress is surely the epitome of classic chic...

I like the idea of having a slightly more fashionable alternative to the plain white shirt:

Also from Oasis. Apologies for the white on white background look...
That's going to have to be all for today as staring at this screen is not helping my headache. Sorry about the slightly bland blog content...xx

I hope you feel better soon! Headaches must be horrible! Thank you for finding that glitch on my blog i would not have known if you had not said so thank you! I will fix it asap! In the meantime feel free to follow me through blogger friend connect (found on the right hand side)

In reply to your question- yes persistence is key as well as making sure they fit well and are as compfy as possible, you really do have to teach yourself to walk in them!
