Tour de France

Hello my lovelies, 

So the Tour de France came to Yorkshire this weekend which just happens to be where I live so I was lucky enough to watch and experience the event!
I have never seen Harrogate so busy which was were we watched it on the first day. We were about 200m from the finish line and watched it on the large screens as we couldn't get anywhere near to actually watch them. However the atmosphere was just amazing and was great to witness such a massive event in my home town :)

Some kid climbed a tree behind us to get a better view of the race, and even Percy Pig made an appearance

On the second day we went to Knarsborough to watch the race where this time I actually saw the bikes and support teams. We were stood in front of the house which had place red spots on it to look like the King of the Mountains jersey. Once again the atmosphere was incredible with everyone cheering each van which came through :)

All around the towns and villages there was bunting and yellow bikes lining the route. This knitted bunting was everywhere which I thought was so cute and made everywhere look really nice. 
I also got into the spirt with my nails painted in the jersey colours and with a English flag as you can see below and on the other hand I had a french flag.

I had such an amazing weekend and was so pleased that I was able to watch such a massive event and so proud that it happened in my local area :) 

Did any of you watch the Tour de France?

    Sight Seeing: The Queens Official Birthday

    Hello my lovelies 

    I spent the weekend in London celebrating my 20th birthday :) 
    Me and my family got up to a lot of things and made the most of being in the capital for a couple of days. On the Saturday we went to watch Trooping of the Colour, which is the celebrations of the Queens official birthday which happens every year on a Saturday in June. We walked down the Mall and the police presents and security was massive! We got to the Mall just in time as we saw all the guards on horse back come through and then got a quick peak at the Queen herself in the carriage! This was a highlight for me as I have never seen the Queen and was nice to see her on my birthday weekend!  

    We then left the Mall and headed to Tower Bridge as they were having a 62 gun salute at 1 and we thought that would be better to see then watch the Queen from a far again. Watching the guns go off makes we realise the power they have and how much damage they could do! 

    After all the celebrations we went for a walk around Shoreditch and went for a wonder around Brick Land to see some of the street art! I really didn't realise how amazing the art was and the scale of it. You cant really see it when you walk past, you have to take a step back to really appreciate it at its best :) these were just a few of my favourites!  

    We then when to Tower Hill and the Shard for dinner and a drink which was really lovely! However, just a word of warning the Shard has a dress code so if you want to go in make sure you look smart :P 

    I really do love London as a city and I am so pleased that I am able to spend more time down there as my boyfriend is at university down there! I love doing touristy things and finding new little places :)

    Where is your favourite place in London?

    Change Your Life

    Hello again lovelies,

    A sad day came when my beloved Paul Smith purse broke which I had for years! When my parents took a trip to New York (without me may I add) they saw this studio with purses and bought me one. The designs on them were all different and based off graffiti around the city of New York. 

    On one side of mine it has N.Y.C writing and on the other is says 'Change Your Life'. I think this is quite a nice quote to carry round with me and reminds me to keep challenging myself and getting the best out of life. 

    I love these size purses as they are a statement piece, easy to find in my unnecessary massive bags, and fits all my stuff in! I am just in love with this and think it is really great quality :)  

    What kind of purse do you like? Any other statement pieces you'd recommend?

I was really worried about my first post and what to put saying I haven't properly blogged in a long time, however now summer is here and I have free time again, I have time to blog, read and do exciting things :) 

    Sorry I have been quiet over the past few months but I am back and ready to blog again :) so this was just a quick hello

    Valentines Inspired Nails

    Hello again my lovelies

    Happy Valentines Day 

    Getting into the spirit of Valentines Day I thought I would so come valentines inspired nails. I have to apologise for the quality of the photos, they are just off my phone! I went onto pinterest and used some different photos for inspiration. 

    I used 2 Barry M nail polishes in Bright Pink and Matte White, I have a lot of pinks but thought this one was a really nice one for valentines day :)

    To create the patterns I used my new nail art pens that one of my bloggers recommended :) I bought them off eBay for less then £2 which I think is really good :) I used the colour as bases then using different brushes dipped them into the polish and carefully drew onto the nails! I think I have a lot of practising to do to make the look good but for my first attempt I think I did quite well :)  

    As me and my boyfriend live at different ends of the country we aren't seeing each other this Valentines Day, however these were delivered to my house this morning :) roses and chocolates are the perfect gift for when you can't be together! I feel like a very lucky girl :)

    I hope you are having a lovely day and spending it with loved ones whether that's a partner, family or friends :)

    Any nail art patterns you would recommend?

    Lovestruck by Vera Wang

    Hello again my lovelies, 

    I find it really hard to find a perfume that fits me and smells all day! I normally find with perfumes that I can smell them to start with but once I have walked out the door the smell is gone! I have tried many different brands but haven't found the one for me yet! 

    When I was on holiday last year I tried Vera Wang Lovestruck and loved the smell, both my parents mentioned how lovely it smelt on me and how they could smell it hours after I had sprayed it on :) for Christmas I received this bottle and couldnt be happier, every time I wear it some mentions how lovely it smells and how it suits me :)

    The packaging is so pretty and looks so nice on my dressing table, I love the flowers and how much detail is in it :) I think once its ran out I might even just keep the bottle! 

    It has a lovely floral smell to it, if you haven't tried it and fancy a lovely perfume for the spring I would suggest having a look at this :) I think once I have gone through this I might get another!!

    Which perfumes suit you best? Any Spring recommendations?
