2014 in Rewind

It's been a crazy year and I'm so sorry for not posting in a while, life has been crazy busy since i got back from Vietnam. Work and school have basically taken over my life. However, today i want to look back at 2014 because it was a pretty amazing year. From Prom, Tanya's Wedding, World Challenge, Meeting new friends, Starting A levels, Camping, Thorpe Park, Getting a job, My 17th Birthday, receiving my GCSE results... It's been full on. I'm not going to talk through my photos, i'm just going to share a few of my favourites from my year,

Here is to an amazing 2015! A few things to look forward to include My 18th, Holiday to America (New York, San Fran, LA and Canada) and possibly getting a tattoo (We'll see about that one!).

Some of you may have noticed my absence from blogging for quite a while. I went to my World Challenge adventure on July 24th to August 23rd.

I am going to share some of the photographs i took, there are a few beautiful scenic photos and a few lovely group pictures. They are not in order, just random with the locations below.

So this is a very, very late post (just like most of the posts on my blog now a days) but at least I've finally got time to sit down and write this. I attended my prom night on the 27th of June and it was such a beautiful night of goodbyes and loads of glitter!

I remember looking forward to prom when i first started secondary school. I loved looking at pictures and when it finally got to my final year of school i was more then ecstatic for prom. 

I was the lady in pink with my gorgeous baby pink dress which i got from ebay (for the bargain price of £50)
My petticoat which i got here
My bracelet is Primark (£3)
Necklace and earrings are Miss Selfridge 
Shoes and Purse were £50 from a local shoe store in Northampton
Hair Clip here 
Glitter i used for my eye makeup and nails here 

Here are some pictures:
(bare in mind that most of these are not done with my regular camera so are not as good but they are still pretty photos none the less)

My Nails:

(OPI Elephantastic Pink)

I loved the night so much, it lived up to my expectations and beyond. Writing this now in July i am already reminiscing the memories which i will keep forever.

Born Pretty Store

So this is a long overdue post, i did post these Nail art pictures already on instagram but i am yet to do a full review on them.

I got sent a few items of my choice from The Born Pretty Store


Firstly, i got sent a wheel with circle, colourful (almost neon) studs.
I used the pink ones to compliment some rose nail art. 

I really love these studs, especially the size because they will be versatile. 

Flower Water Decals

Something else i chose was these gorgeous floral water decals. I've never tried water decals before so they were quite new to me however i found them really easy to use!

Floral Stickers

I've never used stickers either before and I should because they're so easy to use and provide beautiful looking nail art with minimal effort (if you even count ordering them as effort).

I like the design with these but i'm not sure about the transparency of them. A base coat of polish might work but i would think you would then loose the pattern.

Feather Water Decals

I opted again for some water decals but this time some feather style ones. Again, they were easy to use and I love the design.


I often use normal makeup sponges for my nail art but i chose these nail art sponges specifically for doing gradients. They were really easy to use too.

Overall, I love all my products from Born Pretty and they are all cheap (perfect for a frugal nail addict such as myself).

Love, Yasmin xoxo
