1 outfit & nails

021

This is a pretty terrible photo of me, I look so tired. But I wanted to share my new dress with you all, it's from Zara. I bought it on Monday but today Zara has launched an online store which is very exciting. They have so many nice things in at the moment, in both the women range and the TRF range. I also bought a lovely mustard coloured t-shirt with a bow on the neckline. Zara cardigans are also notoriously good and in so many colours, I may have to stock up on some for the winter. Especially as it seems that our office is freezing in the winter!

I also received my Models Own order at the weekend, I chose 4 nail varnishes using the 50% discount offer that was on last week. I got Grass Green, Top Turquoise, Purple Passion & Bluebelle. I instantly chose the Grass Green to try first, because it matches my new favourite cardigan. I applied this on Friday night and took the above photo this morning (Thursday), so you can see it's lasted a long long time! I am impressed. My right hand is admittedly slightly less perfect but only on my middle finger really. For nearly a week's wear though, I am very pleased! Going to try out a new one at the weekend. I think pretty much everyone bought some Models Own nail varnish last week, but I am so impressed with the quality I might buy some more!

    Good review on the Models Own varnish, I think I was the only person to miss out! Gutted.

  7. Everyone's loving the models own nail polishes, they do look pretty great. Love your dress too, it suits you to a T!

    Yeah onwards to the real world now, going to look for marketing jobs ideally! But I have an arts background so I'm going to try and utilise as much as I can from my degrees!

  14. Oik! I like both the dress and the nails. I suddenly crave kelly green nails as well. (Matching your new favorite cardigan?)The dress looks quirky but still quite classical. I would wear it in a heartbeat!

  15. The green nail varnish looks really nice - I've never seen that shade before. The blue glitter looks gorgeous. I think I'd put it on top of midnight blue varnish.
    Thanks for reminding me about the Zara website too. I'll have to check it out x

  27. The dress is gorgeous Helen! And you don't look tired you look as lovely as you always do :) I'm so happy to finally be able to see the Zara range collectively, in one place. Kills me that I'm going to have to be good with my pennies this uni year and not splash out on too many new clothes - what a bore!

  28. Doy u know what means "afeitar" in spanish??

    ReplyDelete
  29. Yes I do, it means 'to shave'. The name doesn't hold any significance it's just a username I've been using for a long time on different sites so made sense to keep my blog as that.

  33. Oh I must tell you, I've seen that dress in the hanger over at Zara and it looks so much better in you than in the hanger!! You look gorgeous Helen. It is amazing when nail polishes are cheap, pretty and long lasting right? I have a couple that surprised me very much! And those colors are really pretty.
