(L-R bikini so teeny; miami nice; tart deco; fiji)
When it comes to Essie nail polish have absolutely no will power. I bought 4 new shades, 2 of which I will be giving to my mum as a part of her mother's day present. You know I could have stopped at the 2 shades I was getting for my mum but I didn't, I couldn't, I love nail polish too much to just walk away! Essie is a little on the expensive side (it usually retails for 11.99 CAD) but they consistently have pretty colours, and the formula and is quite good, if I put on 3 coats the colour lasts for a few days before it chips.
About The Polish
Bikini so teeny is a nice periwinkle blue colour; miami nice is a magenta with a metallic undertone; tart deco is a light coral colour; and fiji is a pale pink.
I'm currently wearing bikini so teeny and I love it! Fiji I think is a great colour if you want your nails to look natural but polished (no pun intended), I personally don't like French manicures but if you're into that Fiji will work nicely. Tart deco is a fun summer colour, and I have a feeling that I'll be rocking it all season long. And while I'm not a fan of polishes with metallic undertones, I think Miami nice would look great on your toes.

Dorthy Perkins has a 50% off sale and I took full advantage of that and I bought three spring dresses and a
belt but I accidently ordered a small :/ Sorry for the crap quality I couldn't find my digital camera
I LOVE the butterfly print of this dress. When looking at this dress I thought it looked expensive and designer made. The pattern is something so different and nothing like anything I own! I'm really happy I took the plunge and bought it because I'm in love!
Admittedly I had been against maxi dresses because I thought they'd make me look stumpy- err stumpier but I finally cracked because maxi dresses are really easy to dress up or dress down and they actually make me look taller (who knew). I bought this basic knotted black maxi. To dress it down I'd pair it with a denim vest and sandals and to dress it up I'd pair it with a gold jewelry and heels.
I adore this dress! Its form fitting but whatever, I'm fat, you can tell that I'm fat whether I'm wearing a tent or spandex so why not wear something that I like and that's pretty, enter: this dress! I love that its floral but its not OVERLY floral also this dress is pretty timeless, I could wear it 10 years from now and not stick out like a sore thumb.
I'm definitely trying to overhaul my personal style. Now that I'm an adult *gulp* leaving the house in track pants, even if I'm going to the movies on a Sunday afternoon, just isn't appropriate anymore, so these dresses are a step in that direction. They are completely my style and are more polished than hoodies from American Apparel ;)
