Summer Memories - The Creperie

Whilst procrastinating and looking through some old photographs (fyi procrastination is my biggest talent) I found some old content from the summer that I had forgotten to post about. I went on a little mini break to Brighton in August and oh my there are SO many cute places to eat there. Literally if I lived there I would probably gain 158854 stone. After seeing a couple of blog posts about The Creperie beforehand, me and my sister took to google maps (a lifesaver when geography isn't exactly your thing) and headed over there. It's probably quite obvious that I'm a pinterest and instagram addict but let me tell you this place was the cutest and most instagrammable place  e v e r  so it made me v happy to be able to take some photos. I had the strawberries and cream crepe which was heavenly and Katie went for a nutella one which I'm pretty sure was equally amazing although I'm not the biggest nutella fan (don't shoot me). Katie also went for a cookies and cream milkshake which was amazing too, I know these photographs probably seem very summery and bright compared to the November climate but when I re found them I couldn't help but share them. If you're ever in Brighton I would 100% recommend The Creperie not only because of how tasty the food is but it is just generally a really cute place and almost directly on the seafront so a win win!

An ode to Essie- my collection

Hi there!

Unless you've been living under a rock for the past couple of years then you probably will have heard of the well known (and loved) nail polish brand Essie. Available in the drugstore, Essie is by far my favourite nail polish brand for affordable yet amazing quality varnishes with THE most incredible colour selection (I can spend a good twenty minutes mesmerized in boots. We've all done it, right?). I thought I'd share the colours I have in my Essie collection as although I don't have all that many, I feel like the colours I do have are a good basis to start collecting from. Most, if not all of the shades I own are quite dark so perfect for autumn and winter so I definitely be rotating these colours throughout the next couple of weeks and months. For all those inpatients gals out there like myself, I would definitely recommend these polishes for super fast drying formulas and also really pigmented colours meaning I usually only need two coats. Pretty damn good right? Also the staying power of these nail varnishes is another reason I always go back to them because they can easily last 5 days without chipping at all! Another great bonus anyone as lazy as me when it comes to painting nails.
