It's Thursday, and I'm keeping to my newly established tradition of updating you on 'life' on this fine day. What this really means is, i'm going to share with you my favourite instagram pics of the weeks, my best new purchases, tastiest restaurant visits, and most worthwhile new products. Brace yourself for the ride folk, here we go ...

I wanted to pay a little special attention to my new nail polish & my unbelievably well painted nails. This is an absolute miracle for me, when I say I can't paint my nails, I truly mean it. I spill it, smudge it, end up with lumps and bumps & prints all over my nails when I try and paint them myself. HOWEVER, post purchasing this Essie polish this weekend, i have to say, it's turned me pro. The moral of this story is, if you buy good nail polish even the most totally inept can use it to perfection.
This polish cost me £8, which I don't think is half bad at all. The best thing about it is once you've applied it, it kind of merges into itself, so even if you apply wonkily, it just smooths itself out to leave the most perfectly smooth coat you could possibly dream of. Seriously, it's awesome.
