A Skint Student's Wishist

Being a student pretty much means your on a limited budget. And no matter how much you really really want to go shopping to buy that amazing top that you can't get out of your head, you have to accept that you can't afford it. So instead I've put together a summer outfit wish list. Last summer it was all about pastels, but this year I'm really liking monochrome with a splash of bright colour.

Hat: Topshop
Lipgloss: Superdrug
Bag: Forever 21
Skirt: Forever 21
Cropped Top: Topshop
Necklace: Accessorize
Shoes: Zara

What do you think of my outfit, anything you would change? I love to see how different people style items of clothing.  What colours will you be wearing this summer?

This isn't a recipe

I love food. I love cooking. I love going to restaurants. I am a foodie.

For a while I've wanted to do some recipes on this blog but haven't been able to. For starters, most of the meals I want to blog about are evening meals and the lighting in this apartment is terrible. Also I only have my iPhone with me to take pictures, and we all know how horribly they cope with artificial light.

But today I thought I would dip my toe into the food blogging pool by talking about what I had for lunch. This was super easy to make but really really yummy.

I love avocado but don't eat it that often as I always tend to overlook it when I go food shopping. But last week I decided I would go crazy and treat myself. I've been thinking of difference ways to cook/eat this fruit but in the end decided that simple is the best way.

So this isn't a recipe as it's basically just a glorified sandwich.

          Bread (I used a part cooked bread roll that I finished off in the oven)
          Avocado (mashed) 
          Sun dried tomatoes

It's pretty self explanatory how to  make it (it's a sandwich not rocket science). I was greedy and had a whole avocado to myself but you could easily share between two. I also snuck a cheeky bit of mayo onto the bread.

What I'd really like to know from you guys is do you like reading recipes on people's blogs? I'm not really into sweet things or baking, so it would be more savoury food such as meals or snacks. Would you be interested in seeing those?

Happy Maltese Mother's Day

Yesterday was a very special day today in Malta. It was mother's day. And what made that day even better? My Mum (who is back in England) didn't know so I got to surprise her and win major brownie points. I'll have that Best Daughter Award now please :)

I got my two sisters in on it, and together we bought her a card and a cheeky present. Now, I don't want to get too big headed or anything but the present we got sums my mum up so well. But I can't take all the credit. I was in fact reading this post by Sophie Loves Food and she mentioned this new cushion she had bought.

Website: Nikki McWilliams

How cute is that! This cushion is my Nikki McWilliams and instantly I knew my mum would love it. She's currently on the lookout for more cushions and she loves the colour mustard yellow. It was perfect.

How did you guys spend your weekend?

OOTD: And full of life, and full of love

Check me out getting all fancy with my editing! Seriously, can we all just take a second to congratulate me (or laugh at how long it took me to take and edit this pictures...) 

What I wore:
Cropped Top - Topshop
Skirt - Topshop
Belt - Topshop
Sunglasses - Mango
Shoes: Primark

I bought this cropped top a couple of days ago and I think it's going to become a firm favourite of mine. It's a gorgeous bright pink without being florescent or garish, which makes it easy to wear (plus it emphasises my tan, yeah?) I got the top from Topshop, where embarrassingly most of my outfit is from, which also probably explains why I'm a poor student.

I realise that I mentioned my belt is from Topshop but you can't make it out in the pictures, but it's a really beautiful belt that's perfect to wear with so many outfits. Here's a picture so you can fully appreciate it ;)

I wore this outfit when I went out for lunch with my boyfriend. I treated him (another reason why I'm poor) to lunch at a restaurant called Mint where they have a slightly different take to other cafes. Rather than having a fixed menu, they choose what food they are going to offer each day by seeing what food they can source that's fresh and seasonal. I really enjoyed it there, the food was delicious.

But now he's gone it's time to put my head down a get this coursework done and dusted. Our last deadline is the 24th May, so after that it will be unspoilt sun and fun for me :)

Review: Barry M Gelly Hi Sine Nail Varnishes

I know, I know. Everyone and their mum has done a review on these nail varnishes. And here's another one spamming your screen. I'm sorry. Originally I wasn't going to do this post, seeing as everyone else has already written theirs. I wouldn't give in to peer pressure or jump on the band waggon and tell everyone how amazing they are..

But then I thought, surely that would mean I'm allowing other people to influence me into not writing this post? So in actual fact, by writing this post I am being independent and doing my own thing? (You still following..)

So here's my totally unique, not jumping on the band waggon, independent woman, and overall brilliant review :)

L-R: Greenberry and Papaya
Now I'm not the kind of girl who has to always has her nails painted, in fact in my house I'm known as the girl who is always saying she will paint her nails, but never actually does. But I love these little gems.

I'm sure you have all heard of Barry M's new Gelly Hi-Shine varnishes, but if you haven't tried them out yet, then you really really should. The consistency is slightly thicker than normal, and when they dry they do look a little like gel. The first coat is slightly streaky, but this completely disappears with the second coat.

I have never found a nail varnish that I've loved until I tried the colour Greenberry. I want to wear it all the time, plus it makes me feel super summery. Papaya is another brilliant colour which I've been sporting on my toes recently.

I also tried to get a bit fancy with the colours...

I got the idea from Dana from Wonder Forest, check out her link here.

The only complaint I have about these nail varnishes is that I bought these two from Boots whilst I was in England for Easter, but didn't try them out until I got back to Malta. If I had know how much I was going to love them, I would have stocked up on more colours! So not a complaint about the varnishes, but my lack of planning.

Anyway, I hope you are all having a great weekend. The reason I haven't blogged in a while is because my boyfriend has flown out to visit me, and I'm making the most out of seeing him. He leaves on Monday (I'm dreading it so much) and I'll take my sadness out in a creative way and write tons of blogposts. Deal?
