Wishlist Wednesday {July 30}

Hello darlings!

First things first, I'm super sorry about the complete lack of posts this past week.  If you follow me on Twitter, you probably know that I was enrolled in summer school for English.  Because I'm applying for post-secondary this year, it's incredibly important for me to do well academically.  However, I have a handful of learning disabilities that makes doing homework and certain projects extremely difficult.  Now I've finished the course and am essentially just chilling until Septmember (yayyy!).

Now onto the featured content!

The transition from the last week of July into the first week of August is always one of excitement for me.  Between the back to school adverts, the approach of my birthday, and the introduction of the autumn lines in the shops, this time of year is always full of anticipation and excitement!

Hautelinks {July 20}

Welcome to Sunday, the least productive day of the week (for me anyways…), here at my blog! Over the past week and a bit, I've really noticed that I've been hoarding a ton of really interesting links in my bookmarks bar. Here is [a heavily edited down version of] my very first Hautelinks posting!

Wishlist Wednesday {July 16th}


If you're like me regarding your beauty habits, you probably have a massive list of bookmarked beauty products that you will most likely never purchase.  And you’ll probably fall in love with far too many things that are far out of your budget.  Fortunately for me, my eighteenth birthday is coming up in less than a month so my wishes might actually be granted!  Fingers crossed!

Hey guys!
I'm not going to lie...I have so much homework to do right now that I really don't want to do, so I figured that I'd do this instead!  Enjoy!

#ManiMonday {Lively Lilac}

During the school year I tend to not wear nail polish as much because I'm usually to busy/tired to spend time on extras.  But the summer is a whole different thing!  My mum is a massive nail polish fiend and she either does them or gets them on a weekly basis, meaning that there are at least two or three new bottles in delightfully season appropriate and daring colours arriving every month!
