Be Back Soon!

I've already been away for a few days (other than my nail post today) but I wanted my readers to know I'll be back soon. As I've said before, I am off to Amsterdam in a couple of days for a four days and I'm sure I'll have loads of pictures and loads to say but until then I'm away. I'll try schedule some posts if I can but with so much university work I just don't have time this week.

New nails

Today I went and got some acrylic nails done. I am not a massive fan of orange but as we are going King's day in Amsterdam I though it would be a good idea to get at least one nail with orange. Believe it or not the nails with art on are PINK! (China glaze pool party)
They only cost me £10 so I can't complain!

OOTD: New Dress

F&F Geometric Lace Dress - £12 (was £25)

I picked up this dress on Valentine's Day in Tesco as I instantly fell in love with it. I thought I'd share it with everyone as I'm wearing it today even though the weather isn't amazing. It is a beautiful pink daisy lace dress with a skinny pink belt.

I adore Tesco's clothing range and the fact they have a plus size range! 
Have you ever bought clothes from Tesco?

Pauletta Foil Print Short Sleeve T-Shirt from WearAll

Pauletta Foil Print Short Sleeve T-Shirt*
I was so excited when I opened my package from Wearall, the moment I set eyes on this top I loved it. It was so soft, which I wasn't expecting. I later saw the top is 95% viscose & 5% elastane which is why it is so soft. 
As a 'plus size' lady it is always hard to find clothes that fit well, flatter me and are still purse friendly but this top ticked all three boxes. I'm not yet confident enough to share my size with the world wide web but it was very true to size and a little big if anything. I hate having my bum on show and this top is amazing, the length means it covers your bum and the thickest part of your legs whilst hiding them lumps and bumps on the way.
I can honestly say I feel pretty when in this top!
with disco pants & my OOTD
As it is summer and the weather is pretty good here in London I wasn't sure what I'd style it with so I went simple, jeggings and disco pants. Jeggings during the day and disco pants for a casual night out. The top is perfect for both casual wear on a lazy day as well as smart-casual as it is so comfy. I love the design on the front, I have a T a little like it already but this one is much better.

A walk around London

Living in London is amazing, I am lucky enough to only live a bus ride away from Trafalgar Square and you never know what you're going to come across when there. There were street dancers, flag drawers and the Spider-Man 2 red carpet premiere. As we didn't know the premiere was on we didn't get close enough but I got a few pictures from the sideline.

Here are some picture from our journey.

Dorling Kindersley (DK) Spanish Language Learner Review*

Dorling Kindersley (DK) Spanish Language Learner
Made for 7 - 12 year olds
What is included?

I really like the book apart from the fact it is fully attached to the packaging and therefore is very bulky. The book has loads of pictures, top tips, games and is written in both English and Spanish. The book has a dictionary with over 2000 words. It is written in English to Spanish and Spanish to English with useful verbs and phrases and basic grammar. There is also a picture dictionary with 26 topics. Overall the book is very colourful which is perfect for Children, and me! 
Flash Cards
I loved the flash cards. There are 5 types of cards with each set having 12 cards. They cover 5 topics which are: numbers, food, clothes, objects and animals. The cards are double sided, one side has the words in Spanish and English and the other side has a picture. The cards are different colours on the front to stop them getting mixed up if you have a bit of an OCD like me. You can use the cards in games and puzzles which are in the activity section of the book.

I wasn't sold on the CD if I'm honest. As you can see the CD automatically opens up in iTunes, I for whatever reason, expected it to be like a movie with short clips so you have audio, visual and subtitles but what I got was audio that doesn't give you enough time to go through it. You listen to two friends having a conversation (in Hello & Goodbye) the male voice has a Spanish accent I have never heard before, I believe it would have been better with someone who had a better accent as it is a little difficult to understand when the whole purpose is to help you be able to get the accent. Although the whole clip is 3.27 most of it is filled with explaining what the disc is about and you have hardly any time to go over it. It doesn't break it down. It just expect you to hear it and then repeat. Not word for word. Which I believe would be easier for children to understand.  

Product: 3.5 / 5
Packaging: 2.5 / 5 (due to the book being attached)
Quality: 3.5 / 5 (due to the CD)
Overall: 4 / 5
Would I buy it? I don’t think so. 
Price: £9.79 at Waterstones (get 10% student discount)

Victoria's Secret haul

The other day after uni I decided to go shopping, my main aim was to find something for Mother's Day but I ended up in Victoria's Secret. Normally in VS they sell 6 beauty products for £36 but at the moment they have a special 7 products for £36 and a secret reward card that has minimum £10 and maximum £500 on it. You won't know how much till you're next in store. 
T&C's of store card

I picked up 6 body sprays and a body scrub. Outside of the offer it would have came to £79 (£11 x 6 + £13) but I only paid £36 for the lot. I guess I wouldn't have bought 7 items if it wasn't for the deal but I sure am happy with what I got.

My smells are: Such A Flirt, Love Spell, Amber Romance, Pure Seduction, Endless Love and Mango Temptation
I also got the Endless Sunset buffing body wash which smells amazing. I love the packaging of the body wash so much, reminds me of the Caribbean, sunset and paradise.
