Getting Personal With Mr Nutcase: Custom iPhone Case

Just like almost every other student...my iPhone is my best friend. (You know what, I nearly just said "like every other teenager" and then I realised that I'm twenty....that's depressing isn't it?) I change the case on it all the time but tend to just buy them in the New Look sale or from eBay for a couple of pounds. 

Mr Nutcase is an online store that specialises in mobile phone cases. As well as having pre-made collections and designs they also allow you to design your own cases. From the colour, to the text and the photos - it's all up to you!

I had seen the lovely Sarah review a Mr Nutcase case on her blog so I was thrilled when they asked me to give one a try! 

I decided to go for a custom iPhone case*. I was able to choose the colour from, no joke, every colour in the spectrum and I chose to make a design from my own photos too. Uploading your photos was easy and you could even zoom in and position them however you wanted once they were uploaded to the site. There were a variety of text options available but I wanted to go quite basic seeing as my design is quite bold and fancy. I chose "Live, laugh and love" because I like it even though it's a tad cliché! All of the photos are from my Summer last year and that phrase outlines those times perfectly.

NV Colour: Nail Polishes

NV Colour is a relatively new brand set to set the cosmetics industry by storm. With their simple yet chic packaging rivalling the likes of MAC and Illamasqua, they're on track to becoming the high street and nation's favourite. Currently online available online, NV Colour ask you to "join the makeup revolution" as they offer up everything from eye crayons to nail polishes. 

NV Colour are currently focusing on building relationships with bloggers and the online beauty community, including the likes of Pixiwoo. Sam used one of their shadows in one of her recent tutorials which also featured products by Urban Decay and Kiko. When NV asked if there was anything I would like to try, I jumped at the chance to give their nail polishes* a good go...you all know I'm a sucker for some pretty nail colours...

Crabtree & Evelyn La Source Relaxing Body Wash and Body Lotion

Crabtree & Evelyn is a store I often ignore. I know that sounds really odd but, you know those shops you always see but never go into because you think that they're just not for you?

Last week's fundraising event for The Emma Maltby Memorial Fund was held at Crabtree & Evelyn in the Victoria Quarter in Leeds and it was my first visit to the chain! The event was lovely and at the end there was a little raffle, where I was lucky enough to win a set of C&E's La Source range!

TGI Friday's #BurgerBlindDate

When TGI Friday's emailed me last week regarding an event they were holding to promote their new menus, I was so excited. Burgers. Cocktails. Yum.

The only information we were really given as that the event was a Burger Blind Date. We were told that we would be given descriptions for a number of "contestants", in this case the burgers, and we would meat (top marks for the pun) our perfect match!

OOTD - Victoria Quarter Special with bigpicturestuff.com

Hello blog! It's been a while, hasn't it? With deadlines and exams looming I've gone with an all-or-nothing approach to my blog and the latter has been my attitude over the past couple of weeks. I didn't want to post things I wasn't passionate about just for the sake of posting and I hope you agree that that's a good attitude to have towards my corner of the web.
