Nails of the Day: GOSH Galaxy Polish

Hello lovelies, hope you've all had a fab week. Today I thought I'd share with you all a nail of the day post. Yep you did read that right a nails post, I know I haven't share anything remotely polish related in an absolute age but to be completely truthful my nails were in a right old state after a) being completely trashed after summer and b) I had an attack of nail biting when I was stressing over my final module essay, but I'm proud to say they are looking and feeling a lot stronger and healthier.

MEMEBOX Princess Edition #5 Tinkerbell

I was really undecided about ordering this Memebox at first but decided to take the plunge and ordered it as part of the second Princess trio of beauty products (Little Mermaid, Tinkerbell & Cinderella) as I just couldn't resist the promise of glitter and pixie dust at Christmas time.

The Tinkerbell box has to be the smallest Memebox I've received so far but it's still packed full with six full-sized beauty products and they are perfect to help me get my Tink inspired sparkle on this Christmas.

Novembers Nerd Block Jr. for Girls

The arrival of the girls Nerd Block Jr. box is always an exciting day in our house and this months arrival was no exception to that rule, it arrived on Friday while they were in school ready to entertain them over the weekend. 

The girls love that there's always something new for them to discover and I love seeing their faces light up and just how excited they get every time they see the box sitting on the kitchen table waiting for them, the few hours peace is just a lovely little bonus on top.

Our First Arcade Block!

Happy Friday lovelies, hope your weeks not been too rough!

Today's post is a mini review of our first Arcade Block by Nerd Block. Arcade Block is a monthly subscription video game mystery box which ships to the UK from Canada, it cost $32.49 a month which was roughly around £19. 

I've been toying with ordering Mr H an Arcade Block for a while as he's not only is he an avid gamer but he'd mentioned he'd starting getting a little bored with his current mystery box subscriptions so as soon as I received my spoiler email for the October box I knew I had to order it to try as I was sure he'd love it.

Memebox Princess Edition #2 Sleeping Beauty

Hi lovelies hope your all having a good week, for today's post I thought I'd share my thoughts on The Princess Edition #2, which was inspired by Sleeping Beauty and features 6 fullsized products perfect for an evening of pampering to help you out of your beauty rut, without you having to wait an age for your Prince Charming to turn up and plant true loves kiss on you to wake you up. 

The first thing that impressed me was just how packed full this edition is, no one use samples in sight which is something I love memebox for.

The Snuggly Fall Tag

Morning lovelies hope you all had a lovely weekend, today I'm sharing a blogger tag that the awesome Maddie tagged me to do (you can see her original post here)

I'm abit late completing this fall tag as fall or Autumn as we call it here in the UK is just starting to come to an end. 

1. Favourite thing about fall?

OK this is a fluffy answer but my favourite thing has to be watching the leaves turn from green to golden and then watching my girls run round the park kicking the fallen leaves around. 

2. Favourite fall colours?

Has to be chocolate brown, caramel gold and deep purple. Wow is it bad that 2 of my 3 answers are food related. 

3. Favourite fall songs?

I don't really have any but I do tend to listen to more rock the colder and darker it gets.

Nerd Block Jr. Girls October Box

Our Nerd Block Jnr box arrived and we decided to hide it away from our girls until they reached that beyond bored point during their October half term holiday and Thursday was that day!

After moaning that they were bored and had nothing to do we decided that it was time to break out the Nerd Block and find out what goodies were hidden within to which we were treated to two very excited daughters who couldn't wait to get their hands on it. Thankfully I managed to snap a few pics while K and T were distracted by munching their lunch.
