H&M Secret Peona Solid Perfume

Hello Strangers! I thought I'd do a quick post of a random purchase I made yesterday. I LOVE H&M for summer clothes and was browsing in there yesterday when this little solid perfume stick caught my eye. I'm not usually one for wearing fragrance. I'm fussy with what I like and not in the habit of wearing perfume often but sniffed this little perfume and thought it would be perfect for my handbag/hand luggage. It's got a light odour, is a super handy size and a great price at £2.99. Boom!

Now I'm no expert in what the scents therein are but if you're near a H&M I urge you to pop it and give this a wee smell and see what you think. Let me know!

NOTD - NYC Expert Lasting Nail Polish "Mint Macaroon"

I was having a rare mooch around Superdrug on Friday and as it's been so long since I've felt even remotely interested in doing that that I got a bit overwhelmed and didn't know what to buy. Pay day isn't until next week due to the bank holiday so I could go too mad. I resisted the temptation to try Revlon Colorstay Foundation (on 3 for 2 at the minute - what else would I buy as my other 2 to get good value?!) and decided to go cheap cheap.

I decided on some summery nail colours and noticed the NYC range were 2 for £2.99 or £1.99 each, so either way not quite going to break the bank.

I bought two including this Mint Macaroon and must say so far, so very good. It's a vintage kind of mint green shade that I think would look especially pretty with a tan. Overall it's a cute summer shade with good coverage after two coats and wearing very nicely under a Seche Vite topcoat thank you very much.

Bargain, non?

Now, any other cheap summer shades I need to get my mitts on?

Where have I been?

I've sort of been hiding.

Not sure if anyone has noticed but if you follow me on Twitter you might have noticed I'm a little grumpier than normal. I've had a few weeks of feeling pretty rough - nauseas, exhausted, hungry, irritable, achy - I've been a real joy to live with! As a result I've lost interest in lots of things I usually enjoy but I'm hoping I'll feel better soon and be back a bit more regularly.

In better news all this sickness gubbins should have something good at the end of it as me and Mr Louboulush are expecting our first baby! We haven't had our first scan yet due to delays but apparently all my symptoms are good reassurance that everything is going along as it should. I've put on about half a stone already so it's getting less easy to hide in real life too so lots of people know already and we're keeping our fingers crossed that the scans will be just fine.

In the meantime if anyone has any miracle cures for the nausea, that'd be wonderful...
