WHAT'S ON MY NAILS WEDNESDAY #44





Barry M Sunset Daylight Curing Nail paint in Peach for the stars £4.99
& Top Coat £4.99

Hello lovelies, I have been wanting to try these nail polishes since they came out but my local boots doesn't stock Barry M sadly so had to wait until I went out of town, since only having less than two weeks to give birth I have avoided bus journeys and waited until the fella was of work to take a trip out of town aha. I know you can order them offline but I'm the sort of person who likes to see shades in touch/face value rather from off a screen as they usually resemble nothing to the online pictures. 

I headed straight for peach for the stars, such a gorgeous shade although it's more on the pink side than peach it's still such a stunning shade perfect for spring/summer. I couldn't believe the shine and feel to my nails once I painted them and applied the top coat, it really did look like I just had gel nails done. All this without a UV light too just facing them into the sunlight which is pretty easy with all this gorgeous weather were having lately. I'm curious to try the top coat with other polishes too to see if it works. 

There isn't a huge range of shades in this Barry M range but I think if they sell well they will introduce some more shades for the summer hopefully, maybe some pastels would be lovely. Barry M just never seem to let me down on the polish front, the most affordable and long lasting nail polishes I use I have to say, I couldn't recommend them enough to you all. I have been wearing this for 3 days and no chips at all, not even at the tip of my nail, I will let you all know how long they roughly lasted before chipping, go check this range out if you haven't already, I got mine from Boots and they currently have a buy one get one half price on the Barry M nail polishes, bargain!

MUMMY MONDAY | BOYS RULE







STAR WARS T-SHIRT - ASDA*
JEANS - ASDA*
FISHBONE SHOES - ASDA*

Hello lovelies, the sun is still making appearance, it's been lovely not to have so much 'april showers' and lots of lovely sunshine. Oscar was very kindly given lots of new clothes from Asda recently so I thought it was a perfect opportunity to show them off in the sun. I am in love with these jeans, they look super comfy on him, stylish and although there 'tapered' jeans they look like skinny jeans, really stylish yet practical, plenty of room to make mischief in. 

I'm not one for Star Wars but I loved the 'Boys Rule' T-shirt, I think he suits the colour really well too and this is casual yet still quite smart and will go with a lot of different bottoms, then lastly the shoes. These pumps are really sturdy for the affordable price tag, they look like they will last him a long while. He loved this outfit and was making lots of poses for me, if only you could see half of them aha. I think Asda have such a great range of clothes for kids, they are super affordable and there clothes wash well, the only thing that has put me of cheaper clothing in the past is it not washing well but the quality of these clothes are fantastic and will last a while, I would definitely recommend shopping here especially when kids grow so fast you can afford to buy a lot of tops from £2 - £8 each!

Where do you tend to shop for your little ones?

BORN PRETTY | 5PCS MAKE UP BRUSH SET






Born Pretty 5pcs Make up brush set $16.09*

Hello lovelies, I was recently very kindly given some make up brushes to trial and let you all know my thoughts on them. The only make up brand I truly trust not to let me down is Real techniques, they are my every day go to brushes but these brushes are slowly becoming my favourite! So affordable for your first set of face brushes that you really need. 

I love the round brush for foundation, it makes my foundation go on so flawlessly and really blends in well, I like to use the flat brush for dabbing on cream blush, the angled brush to get a real good contour going on and am yet to use the other two brushes, but the quality of the brushes are great, they are so soft and dense and they wash really well. 

I also like the black and gold design of the brushes, they make them look quite elegant and look more money that what they actually are. The handles are sturdy and quite thick so it makes them really easy to handle whilst applying your make up. Although I haven't tried the tapered brush yet it looks like it would be great for concealing especially around the eye area with the domed effect. 

If you would like to try these brushes out I have a code for you to get 10% off, or 10% off anything you fancy on their website. 'PWG10' They have a huge range of beauty products and very affordable. I have linked the make up brush set in the price above, I'd love to know your thoughts if you get your hands on them.

LEGOLAND | FAMILY FUN

Hello lovelies, I've had this post in my draft for ages and it must of got lost or I thought I posted it and clearly didn't aha, but here it finally is. So quite a few weekends ago we went up to London to see some of Dan's family who live in St.Albans, lovely area and we had planned to take Oscar to Legoland for a while so we thought we may as well spend a weekend with Dan's family at the same time as the Lego trip. I was so looking forward to going as I never went as a child and always wanted to and couldn't wait to see Oscars face. We travelled up to St.Albans Friday evening so we didn't have to get up really early on the Saturday, we had a lovely breakfast with Dan's family then made our way to Legoland, it was only 40 minutes or so from their house so that wasn't bad.

We got there and Oscar kept saying wow and I was pleasantly surprised by it all, we forgot Oscar's pram for when he got tired through out the day but they had these cool buggy with steering wheels on for Oscar to sit in and I think he preferred that anyway, they are £9 to hire for the day but well worth it. I won't ramble on too much now and just leave you with a very picture heavy blog post, we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. I think Oscar and Dan loved the 3D cinema the best, we got squirted with water and Oscar found that hilarious and he looked super cute in the glasses, they both also loved the creative centre where you could build what you liked out of tons of lego they have in tables, my favourite bit by far had to be mini land where they build lots of little places out of lego, it was amazing I could have looked at it for hours, the hard work and detail gone into it all and the park alone is just fantastic.

 I can understand why it's quite expensive to get in but luckily for us we had a voucher from a Kelloggs cereal box where you buy one adult ticket and get one free and under 3's are free anyway so all three of us got in the park for £48! Absolute bargain then you have to pay £5 to park, I think that's a bit of a joke especially if you've had to pay full price with the price on top of food in there, disgustingly high priced and that it can be very pricey and it's already pricey to get in but non the less we had a fab time and I even got to go on some of the rides with them both being pregnant. I would highly recommend your family going, Oscar is only two and a half but he really enjoyed himself, especially in Duplo Valley, even the little parks there were great, I'm waffling again, enjoy the pictures...
