Flat White - Costa Coffee

Today I was led astray from my normal Starbucks (coffee caramel frappuccino with cream) to try a flat white with my mate Pete.

I'm not a hug fan of strong coffee, but this was almost as creamy as a hot chocolate (which I love) but with the flat coffee taste, I suppose that's where it got it's name!!

Due to having the creamy layer on top, it's not too hot to drink straight away, which I love because I'm a bit of a wimp and usually have to wait 10 minutes for a hot drink to cool down!!

I would rate this coffee a 8/10, due to it's interesting taste, not too creamy, not too coffee like (strangely), pretty and relatively cheap compared to my usual. Unfortunately, it's just not a frappuccino!!

“17” Nail Varnishes - Boots Payday Trip

I first saw these nail varnishes on the internet when checking out the latest No.7 nail varnishes. They stood out so much and made me think of Spring straight away. Which is always great when there’s been so much snow in the UK this year!!

I wanted to have a look at them in person rather than just buy online. But as soon as I saw them I was under a spell, I could just imagine how my nails would look.

Left to Right: Fairy cake, Mint choc chip, Sherbet lemon

When I first applied the nail varnishes they were quite thin, but after two coats (which is probably quite normal for a nail varnish anyway) they were as smooth as you could wish for. The colours are so beautifully bright yet so subtle at the same time because they are pastel shades.

I really wanted to paint my nails again with the mint choc chip, but I settled that desire by painting my boyfriend’s toenails – hehe. The great thing about these nail varnishes is that they were already on my “wishlist” because I'd seen similar colours all over other people’s blogs and fell in love. I’m a sucker for new nail varnish colours!!

I actually want to buy the rest of the collection now…they were on 3 for 2 when I bought them so instead of being £2.99 each I paid £5.98 for 3, much better!! And how can I say no to the other great colours when they are such a super price!

Let me know what you think – or if you have any similar shades you would like to share!!
