Day Zero Project...


Day Zero Project

I First found project zero a month or two ago when I was browsing through some other blogs, and I have wanted to do it ever since. I’m quite stuck in my own ways, and the idea of even edging out of my comfort zone freaks me out! So, I thought this would be a fantastic way to dip my toes in the pond and almost ‘force’ myself into doing this I would usually avoid!

What is ‘Day Zero Project’?
You give yourself a list of 101 things to do in 1001 days, and that’s as ‘simple’ as it is. All the things I have completed will be striked out and PINK in colour. The ones I’m currently working on will be BLUE in colour, and the rest BLACK!

Start Date: Monday 30th September 2013  
End Date: Monday 27th June 2016

I have made a whole page here here, where you can come back and check my progress over the next 2 ½ years (ish)

wish me luck!

A Blogging Trip ● Amy Valentine

Hello my lovelies,
Today I thought I’d kick start my Share the love type posts, so I took a blogging trip over to Amy Valentine’s blog, which you can check out here!

The Video ● September Favourites

Hey my lovelies’,
Just a fly by today to let you know that I ‘Finally’ filed a video for you guys, its just a September favourites but I hope you enjoyed anyway!


Let me know if I should do one next month or so?

Life Lusts| Topshop Nail Polish

Nail polishes



I love Topshop nail polishes! They are seriously so beautiful. I only really venture into my local Topshop, so I can’t vouch for others, but the way they display them is stunning, as soon as I walk into Topshop I’m in the nail corner…drooling (obviously, only metaphorically otherwise I’ll heave).

Sadly I only have a few Topshop nail varnishes since they retail at £5 a bottle, which sounds pretty good in comparison with O.P.I, and are quite opaque on a one coat basis. Below are just some of the ones I want to add into my collection form (left to right):

RAD
I LOVE this colour it reminds me of pistachio by sinful colour if anything slightly brighter. It’s name is true to form too.
Green Room
Never been in a green room, but despite that I feel the colour belongs in my nail polish collection, it just screams ‘Iyana-Nikita you must buy me…today’, it’s the type of green you just can’t say no too.
Carnival
This is a bright Orange, this colour was defiantly lunched this year otherwise I would have it already. It’s on my list for next time I go into Topshop! It’s so orange, if you know me, you’ll already know that I love to wear black outfits a hell of a lot with bright neon nails and a neon bag. Don’t ask me why, I just do.

High-Voltage
Every human needs a good old pink nail varnish. Pink is a colour that suits practically any sink tone, despite the shade of pink. High Voltage is defiantly one I need! I don’t have one so dark, but still with dimension…I’ve seen one of my friends wear it and I’m still in complete lust for it.
Parma Violet
This is one of those colours that doesn’t shout hey look at me, which is quite common in my current collection. I feel it’s such a quite colour, which when I get even darker in the summer will look so beautiful against my skin. Even though I’m quite dark already, I feel with the extra bit of colour it will look even lusher.
Gypsy Night
Now, I don’t know if you can tell or not, but this is some pretty blingin’ black! It has a slight shimmer to it, when I get it I will of course show you a swatch but boy is it beautiful. I love matte everything, so I think it will look amazing under a matte topcoat.
Celestial
I didn’t realise I actually already have this colour, don’t ask me how it’s like my signature colour, I’ve even got it on now under a blue glitter. Think of the sky on a clear bright day, and celestial is the colour that will pop up into your head. It’s slightly brighter than the bottle lets you perceive, but only by a fraction.

So Guys, this is my wish list of all the Topshop nail polishes I ‘NEED’ not ‘want’ in my life, I hope you enjoyed this post & let me know your dupes, or which is your favourite Topshop nail varnish!

Thank you for reading & I’ll write to you very soon,


Which are your favourites?

Review ● Elizabeth Duke of Bond Street Nail Cuticle Conditioner


The Mystery Carer

This has been in my collection for a while now, and I’ve never really given it the time of day, but after giving my hands an intense rehabilitation a month or two ago I have really fallen hard for Elizabeth duke! I’ve been browsing the web to find more on this “nail brand”, but I have not been able to find a crumb, which is a shame and slightly odd if I must say!

Autumnal Wishlist| FashionUnion

Inspired by channel
I’m still putting it off, but I think it’s safe to say that summer has finished her in the UK! I’m always a bit put off when it comes to transitional weather changes, but nether the less I’ve put together one looks using one of my new favourite online stores called Fashion Union, which I’m sure you’ve probably heard of!*

Three times a charm| Liebster Award

This post is really late, but with excuses aside lego!
Liebster Blog Awards

Credit
I’ve only been blogging for a month and a half so when I was nominated for my first award a couple of weeks ago I was utterly delighted! *Huge Grin* and yesterday (which is now, a few yesterdays ago) I was again honoured with another one by the lovely simmie, from lovefromsimmie! With complete intention to respond to her post, I got caught up with work and what not and have since been given the same award by two other lovely girlys Helen from teainthetub, and Rachel from heartoceansecrets! All three of them have beautiful, beautiful blogs and I’m honestly not ‘just’ saying that! So please make sure you give them a nose

Nails ● Intensive care for neglected nails

Getting things Nailed
Let’s be honest, we all have that beauty ‘regime’ that we neglect, and mine is my nails. The idea of using cuticle oil or even filing my nails is defiantly an alien idea, but today I’ve been feeling some remorse for my claws and have decided to give them a good’ old pamper!

Fashion| Outfit Idea


I hear you’re a minimalist



I’m pretty practical when it comes to clothing; I’m such an awkward person in general, so if I happen to be wearing something in public that I don’t feel 110% snug in, I’ll start walking funny & get all flustered (If anyone wants to adopt my brain, I’ll pay you) So, here is an outfit idea that I would wear!

Fragrance Review ◦ Joop Thrill Woman

Scent of Thrills

This is my little bottle of sheer divine; it smells like heavens palace (whatever that smells like). It’s not something I’d usually go for, because it’s quite heavy in the floral department, and I tend to go for airy scents like coconuts and vanillas, but it is quite pleasant.

The Video • My Perfect Imperfections


My Perfect Imperfections!

“Nothing and no one is perfect. It just takes a good eye to find those hidden imperfections.”
I did the perfect imperfections video by AndréasChoice. Personally I think its always good to look at the negatives and the positives in every situation, even if it is something physical…ideally when you think about a negative, you should think about at least two positives (this is going to be my new motto, why not make it yours?).
