Food | Turtle Bay - Milton Keynes

Oh look, I did that thing where I disappeared off the face of the earth again, sorry about that guys! I'm really struggling with my blogging mojo recently and no matter how many times I promise myself I will write a post it just never happens. But a couple of weeks ago I joined the MK Bloggers for a meal at Turtle Bay, so hopefully these wonderful ladies have given me back some blogging motivation.

I'd heard of Turtle Bay before but never actually visited, but if you've never heard of it before, it is a Caribbean restaurant where you can expect a lot of spice. I was the last person to arrive but when I did, I found the other ladies around the bar taking advantage of the cocktail happy hour but unfortunately I was driving so could partake in this.

Sunday Six | Posts I've Loved This Week #1

There's nothing better in the blogging community than sharing the love and supporting fellow bloggers so I have decided to start a series here on my blog to show my love for other bloggers and their posts.

Just a disclaimer here, although this is posts I have loved this week, it takes me a very long time to get through my Bloglovin' feed so the posts that will feature here will be a few weeks old and not necessarily the newest posts from these bloggers. So without further ado, lets get started...

Nails of the Day | Kiss Salon Acrylic French

Today I'm bringing you a slightly different NOTD post as I have been sent some Kiss Salon Acrylic French* nails to test out. It's been a good few years since I dabbled with stick on nails, preferring to paint or gel my nails at home, or getting acrylic nails done at the salon if I wanted falsies.

When my parcel arrived I was happy to see not just one but two sets of nails. The two sets I received were a medium length in an almond type shape and a real short length in a square shape and they are in two different french finishes. It took me a good while to decide which set I wanted to try out first and eventually settled on the almond shaped set.

Each set comes with 28 nails so that you are able to find the perfect sizes for your nails, after sitting and laying them all out I eventually found enough little nails that fit on my teeny tiny hands. The instructions state to put glue on both your own nail and the fake nail to ensure that it bonds so I worked my way across my hands gluing them on one by one nearly gluing my fingers to each other multiple times, I don't advise doing this. I was pretty impressed with the application, I noticed a couple weren't completely straight, but I've only got myself to blame for that.

Other than the wonky ones, I was really pleased with how these look once they are on. As they are quite a thin nail, they sit nicely into the nail bed and look very natural. When I was in the Lush store on Oxford Street I was talking to a lovely shop assistant who complimented me on my nails and asked me where I got them done, to which I responded 'oh, they are Kiss glue on ones', let's just say she was impressed.

On the side of the packet, it states that these nails have a 7 day wear so after 7 days I was a bit more cautious about what I did with my hands making sure not to catch the nails at all. More and more days went by a to my surprise I actually managed to keep these on for a whole 3 weeks, yes 3!! You could tell where they were starting to come away from the nails round the edges a little but they still didn't come off easily that is for sure.

I can't wait to try out the other set and I will definitely be purchasing some for myself when I want false nails in the future, they retail for about £7.95 a set, certainly a lot cheaper than a set of acrylics in a salon.

Have you tried Kiss Nails? What is your favourite false nail brand?

Review | Vatika Naturals Garlic Enriched Hair Oil

Right back in June I took a trip into London to attend the Bloggers Ball organised by Scarlett London. There was a large range of brands there, one of them being Vatika Naturals, they offer a large range of natural hair products for all different hair types, made with a large number of different ingredients. 

Review | Nivea Post Shave Balm

I took the photos for this post right back before my little blog hiatus and to be honest I wasn't sure I was still going to do the post but after doing a poll on Twitter it seems that people still want to see it.

Like a lot of products that are majorly raved about within the blogger community, I was very late on the bandwagon for this. If you haven't heard, basically the wonderful Nikkie Tutorials made a wonderful discovery that the Nivea Post Shave Balm is a great substitute for make up primer. There was a big big big hype for this product after this revelation, everyone and their dog was buying it and if you didn't know this, where have you been?
