Sunday. Um. I have never been so bored in my entire life. Fact. Which is why I've done this to my nails tonight:

L-R: Barry M: 262 (Bright Red), 279 (Bright Pink), 276 (Mulberry Pink), 119 (Baby Pink), 282 (French Polish), 54 (Base)

The sad part is the fact that this is about a quarter of my Barry M collection. Cheap as chips, funnily enough of which none appear to arise after 4-5 days of nail varnish wearing with these babies, I honestly can't resist a good ol' Barry M nail paint!

Ins & Outs #5

♥ Finishing about 97.5% of my Uni work - three weeks in advance! Thus leaving me with ample spare time to laze about in the parks in Southampton, shop/window shop to my heart's content, read blogs and be on top of them for once, nap and generally do whatever the heck I want.

♥ Receiving a £10 grab bag at Lush yesterday, which contained 2 large chunks of Bohemian and Vanilla in the Mist soaps, and an Easter bath ballistic. Good times overall!

♥ My Mumma is such a darling; she's been ringing me daily to make sure I'm okay because she knows how 'meh' I feel about living in the flat sometimes :) I love our phonecalls so so much! And, almost all of our phonecalls last for 11 minutes and 11 seconds :O

♥ Spontaneous day trip to Bournemouth with Heather! Definitely our best random idea since Uni started... This almost beats S Club night! It was so sunny and warm there yesterday as well, absolutely beautiful :) We even bought stick rock, ice-creams and attempted to brave the fuh-reezing cold sea for photographs.

♥ BBQs and picnics with the girls almost every day of this week after seminars and lectures has been fun :) I was extremely proud of not giving myself food poisoning after our little park BBQ sesh on Wednesday! Also: toasted marshmallows are the nommiest thing ever, always one of my favourite things in the summer.

♥ Being madeover in Benefit! Yay!

♥ Constant, persistant moaning. I will not go into details :) 'Tis nothing to do with my lovely blogging chicas, don't worry!

♥ Lack of money. This is constantly going to be an 'out' until I graduate, most likely.

♥ Lack of motivation. You seriously do not even want to see the state of this bedroom! It is gross. On the bright side, it smells deelish and of Lush ;D

♥ Feeling nostalgic for much better times from early last year and late 2008. No more shall be said on this either...

Hope you've all had lovely weekends!

  5. @Emma Jade: Thank you ;) I am honestly keeping my rainbow nails until they're ridiculously chipped! Hmph, lack of money is not good... I really should have found myself a job for this semester haha! Hope all is well with you beautiful :) XO

    @alexandra: Thank you! Ooh I have almost all of the pinks now ;) Try and nab a Mulberry Pink soon if you can... I've heard that it's being discontinued! I would honestly recommend all of the colours I used in this post ;D

    @Sarah: Thank you chick :D I'm nerdishly organised therefore I get panicky and stressed if my work isn't done well before deadline! And on top of that, I have a 5-hour Uni timetable... which means I feel even more guilty if I don't do all that 'personal study' that is recommended! Ooh I know that feeling :p Pulling all-nighters and carrying on in the morning, and practically running to the hand-in hatch in my 4pm... :') Good times..

    @Lauren: I love my Barry M nail paints ♥ Ooft, sad times indeed honey :(
