Cutest Charger ever : Triple C for J Crew Universal Charger


It is not normal – I went to J Crew on Sunday, didn’t buy any clothes, shoes or jewellery, instead I entered the shop at the “wrong entrance” – the menswear entrance, but ended up making one of my happiest purchase ever! It is the Triple C for J Crew Universal Charger for my iPhone 5!

Budget Buy: H&M Paradise Flower nail polish


Hot pink seems to be on everyone's nail at the moment. And I think I have found my favourite shade of hot pink... Not from Essie or Nails Inc nor OPI, but in H&M!!

Essie Fiji dupe: L'Oreal Color Riche Nails in Opera Ballerina


Essie’s nail polishes are not that expensive anyway (£7.99 each). However, every little helps when it comes to saving pennies on our wallet. The nail polish I am talking about is L’Oreal Color Riche Nails in Opera Ballerina (£4.99 each).

It is their Spring Edition polishes (The lavender pastel blue called Nouvelle Vogue is gorgeous too! Check out my blog dedicated to all things pastel blue). This nudy pale pink colour is very pretty and soft. The brush is wide that makes application so easy and smooth. The consistency is quite sheer, I put on 3 layers to give an opaque finish.

Compare to Essie Fiji, Essie Fiji has more pink in it where Opera Ballerina is more nude and has a peachy undertone, which reflects the soft leather ballet dancing shoes (which are peachy pink, not pink-pink)
I love the L’Oreal bottle too! It is slim and compact, easy to store and product won’t be wasted! Honestly, when do you ever finish a full bottle of nail polish, ever?

While Essie polishes is £7.99 each, L’Oreal Color Riche Nails is only £4.99 per bottle.

To conclude, taking into account the packaging, the colour, the finishes and the price, I am with L’Oreal Color Riche Nails in Opera Ballerina all the way!
