ELEGANT TOUCH CHROME CRAZY NAILS REVIEW

I've never really been big on fake nails. I've tried a few in the past, but I've never come out the other end wanting to give it another go anytime soon. For some reason these glittery nails caught my eye - I'm a magpie! I don't know what made me decide to pick these up, but I'm so glad I did. Since wearing them, I've had loads of compliments on where I got them from. Because of that, I thought it'd be best to write a post on what I thought of them, the wear time, and where they're from.
I actually picked these up from Savers, a discount shop in the UK, for a bargain price of £2.99. I actually haven't found these there since, but I have directed people that way when they've complimented me on my nails when I've been on the tills at work! Just like most Elegant Touch nails, these come with nail glue, nail stickers and a nail file. You can choose between the glue or the stickers depending on how long you want them on for. I usually file around the ends of the fake nails a touch, just to smooth the plastic down. I make sure my nails are oil free with a swipe of nail varnish remover pads and then I'm good to go. After working out which size nails to use, I dab a little glue on each nails and press way. It's really that simple! They dry pretty much instantly, but too quick that you can't press the nail on in time. I'm not that great at wearing fake nails, and these nails are more on the long side! If you're not into super long nails these may be a little hard to handle, but after a couple of days I was used to them. Despite them being a little too long for me, they're way too pretty for me to not wear them because of that!
These lasted on my nails for 5 days before they began to pop off, but they're easy to reapply if needs be. I didn't do a lot in the 5 days of wear, so if you're a busy bee then maybe bring the glue on the go in case of any naughty nails trying to make their escape. If you can't find them at your local Savers they're worth the £6 that they're on sale for currently on Asos.

These are currently on sale at Asos for £6.00!
You can get them here.
Original price £8.99.
Thanks for reading!

BAR & BEYOND NORWICH REVIEW

I was invited down to the opening of Bar & Beyond in Norwich a couple of weeks ago, and I was super excited to see what it looked like. I had heard about the opening for this club for a couple of weeks before, so I was thrilled to be invited down to see what all the fuss was all about! I'm always on the look out for a new place to go out in Norwich, and this place is now on the top of the list!
The inside is pretty cool - It looks arty and industrial at the same time. The striped down interior and interesting features makes this place stand out amongst the other clubs on Prince of Wales. It's quirky, and fun without being pretentious. On arrival the staff were instantly bubbly and approachable, answering any questions we had about their opening. I came to the event with Laura, Laura and Shelley. I'd met them at previous events, but it was really lovely to get to know them in a relaxed environment with tasty drinks! I adored getting to know the girls a little better, and the evening we had at Bar & Beyond is one I'll remember for a while! The great thing about this venue is that you can chill out in the bar area, have a few drinks and a catch up, and then head into the back where the club is for some serious partying.
I absolutely love the bulbs above the window, it was the first thing I was attracted too! I honestly adore the decor and I fell in love as soon as I walked in. As I said previously, the venue is split into two. The first part you walk into is the bar and lounge. The lounge is perfect for grabbing some yummy food and drinking a fruity cocktail while catching up with friends. Once you're done eating and chilling, you can make your way through the the club area where you can have a dance. There's an option for a booth also, so if you're planning on a big night out I'd recommend a booth. There a ground floor and downstairs to the club area, so plenty of room for a boogie! We had a booth for the evening and we were so well looked after! A lovely lady looked after our table and made sure that we were having a great night.
The food on the night was fantastic! We were treated to the large platter which had a bit of everything! It was so yummy and I'll definitely be back again. You can see the full food menu here. The absolute star of the evening had to be the cocktails. I am a cocktail girl through and through, and I wasn't left disappointed. I manage to try a fair few cocktails and ended up going to work the next day feeling a little worse for wear, but it was totally worth it! There's a cocktail for everyone, so if cocktails are your thing (And if there not, there's other options!) then I would recommend Bar & Beyond - The cocktails are to die for. Also if you manage to swing by between 5pm-10pm, there's 50% off drinks - Hurrah!
Overall, if you're looking for a good night, I'd recommend Bar & Beyond. It's about time Norwich had a great place to party, and this didn't let me down! It met all my expectations and I'm so happy that it did. I'm already excited for my next night out here. If you love a drink and a boogie, head down to Bar & Beyond.

FASHION COLLAB WITH SOPHIE ELLIOT

I was asked by the lovely Sophie if I would be interesting in doing a fashion collaboration with her, and already being familiar with her work, I jumped at the chance. I was immediately flattered as all her photos are super lovely. I've done a few shoots before, but mainly with close friends so I was slightly nervous. I'm not the most confident with how I look so I was worried about being awkward in front of the camera, but Sophie was beyond lovely and made me feel comfortable straight away. Sophie suggested taking photos in the lanes in Norwich, and I couldn't be more happier with how they've turned out. We already have an exciting project in March, which I am so excited for! For this shoot we made the coat the main focus, and I bought this adorable top because it went so well with the fur trim. If you want to see all of the final photos from the shoot you can see them on Sophie's website here, or blog here. You can also see all her work from various shoots here - She's super talented! All clothes will be linked below. 

I'm so over the moon that she asked me to do this, and I'm so excited for our shout in March. A massive thank you to Sophie for these lovely photos - it's given me a little boost in my confidence. I hope you enjoy the photos! You can find Sophie on Twitter @Sophieephotos
