Room Tour / Home Haul

If you read my blog, you'll know that I have recently moved house and so I thought this week i'd blog a little home haul

I am currently obsessed with anything copper and so I wanted to base my new bedroom around a colour palette of copper, cream, grey and white. I wanted to keep it very minimal and sleek. My inspiration was how I imagine a boutique hotel. 

I wanted to keep the backdrop clean, with lots of quirky accessories, here's a few bits and bobs I picked up along the way: 

Copper Geometric Candle Holder Lantern - - £19.95 

Grey Wooden Photo Frame - - £12 
Copper Maroq Light Garland - - £21.50 
Creativity Postcard - Paperchase - 60p 

Springbok head - handmade in South Africa 
Copper spray paint - wilkinsons - £3 

Flowers - Wilkinsons - £2.50 per bunch 
Vase - Boutique shop in Cornwall - £7 

B LED Mini Carnival Light - - £30 

Little Things Trinket Box - Homebase - £6.99 

Assorted Jars - B&M - £3 

Picture - Liverpool Tate - Free (legitimately I promise) 
Cushions - Dunelm mill 
White Bedding - B&M - £15.99 

I love all my new little trinkets in my room and I'm enjoying putting all the girly touches on it. I hope you've enjoyed a little peek at my home haul. I'm thinking of doing a full room tour for my YouTube channel when I get a few more bits. If you'd be interested, let me know in the comments below. 

Until Next Time

Little Ondine - Natural Beauty review

Last week I had a little treat through the post, that has to be one of my most intriguing samples to date. 

What is Little Ondine I hear you ask? Well it's a brand of nail varnish, but not just any nail varnish. This nail varnish is magic. 

But it looks just like any other nail varnish, I hear you cry?! Well that's where you would be wrong. 

There are three things I hate about traditional nail polish. It smells dreadful, the damage it does to my nails and the clean up operation after I decide I am bored of the colour. 

For me Little Ondine gets rid of all of these hassles with its innovative natural formula. Composed of Natural resin, organic colourants and water, this smooth textured polish is a delight to use.

Best bits: 

- it looks great after one coat, but with two coats, it looks even better. 

One coat: 

Two coats: 

- it dries really quickly. Like really quickly! The only thing you have to be careful of is not to wet your hands for an hour and you'll be safe and ready to go.

- it's completely odour free. That horrible toxic smell you get from traditional polish, goes right out the window and I can assure you, it's bliss being able to paint your nails without having to open every vent in sight.

- my favourite point of all, it peels off! You know all those times you were told off for peeling your painted nails, well this brand encourage it. Due to its formula you can peel this polish off in one go without the need for chemicals that are harsh on your nails, meaning you'll be ready in a snap for the next colour. 

There aren't many things I get through my mailbox that keep me wanting more and more, but this is one of them. I'm absolutely in awe of the idea and it's become my new favourite nail polish. I can't wait to treat myself next month to a few more colours! 

If you're like me and can't wait to get your hands on it, the lovely people at are offering you guys 10% off on their website, which are just a snip at £7.80.

Today I have something I'm super excited to show you. Last week I was sent some popbands by beautycrowd, which is an online store dedicated to makeup, skincare & bath and body.

If you haven't heard of popbands before, they are soft, stretchy,'no dent' hair bands that hold your hair tight and leave it kink free when you take it down. Sounds amazing right? 

What makes these little cuties even better, is that they have really funky designs which also double up as a bracelet. 

So far I've used these every night to keep my hair out of my face whilst I've been sleeping and when I've woken up my hair has been just as good as when I went to sleep! 

If you fancy getting your hands on some popbands, the lovely people over at are offering my readers 10% off with the code WHATSHEDID1 until the 30th June. 

Head to to use the exclusive discount and start stacking your arms with some major arm candy. 

Until Next Time
