I've had a very funny/busy/random/terrifying/lol week. Long story short, I had some camera men filming me in my flat on Friday! I will share more when I know for sure if I'm gonna be on the telly box or not... Don't like to jinx these things!
The madness doesn't end, as they're back for more on Tuesday, and the rest of my week will be consumed with trying to get my Final Major Project back on track. I am so behind it is slightly terrifying. But you have to say KTHX to exciting opportunities in this life, so I'll have to find a way to get everything done.
I did my nails before work earlier and went for a kind of mixy-matchy look. I was trying out a technique for getting french tips and half moons. More on that on Tuesday! :)
I decided today that Top Turquoise by Models Own (bought with my own dollarz, by the way) is officially my favourite nail polish ever. A stunning creamy Turquoise shade, opaque after one coat and quick drying. J'adore!
I used Eyeko's Cosmic Polish for the black tips (wasted on this manicure, as you can't see the awesome glittery bits in it) and Beauty UK's Metallic Gold (freebie) which is my favourite gold polish. Can't seem to see it on the website.. Maybe it's sold out. Also used my Models Own/Wah Nail pen.
I had a thought today when considering how to celebrate this blog reaching over 2000 followers (thank you all SO much, by the way ♥ Still have to pinch myself when I see my follower count!) I've done the whole sponsored giveaway marathon thing in the past, which was great and that, but I think a more personal approach would express my gratitude to you more sincerely... Not interfered with by promotional messages. I don't want to gain new followers because it's a stipulation of my amahhhzing [insert brand here] giveaway... I'm ecstatic with where this blog has gotten to so far, and any further growth will be fab, but I'm not going to force it.
Soooo I'm not going to spill the exact details (mainly because I haven't thought that far ahead yet), but I'm thinking of doing a competition/giveaway where all prizes have been lovingly hand-picked and purchased by myself. No 'RRP £150' here. Not saying I'm turning my back on giveaways, as it's lovely to have an opportunity to win things we might not usually be able to afford, but I'm just thinking in the context of celebrating a special milestone, it could cheapen the sincerity... Dunno! Not saying I think this of other bloggers that do this, as I have done it myself in the past! I'm not here to judge! Just thinking out loud, and trying to work out the best way to thank y'all.
I'm clearly quite the overthinker, so I'm leaving it up to you, my dear, dear followers.
Would you appreciate the chance to win some cool stuff sponsored by brands? Or something with a more personal touch? Or a bit of both?
After all, I want to thank YOU. So whatever the majority decides is what I'll go with. Not sure when, mind! Due to my aforementioned trainwreck of a life. Probs at the end of May when I'm an unemployed post-grad.. (does 8 hours a week at Topshop really count as a job?)
Can't believe how long I just ravaged your retinas with babble for!! Forgive!
Back soon I hope. Wish me productivity with my uni work!
