Nails, Listen, Something New

Sunday, July 27, 2014


One of the most important things you should know about me is that I don't mess about when it comes to nail polish. I actually pride myself on my nail polish collection - I have many different brands and selections but my absolute favorite line is by Topshop. The one I have on my nails now, "Disclosed," was given to me by one of my good friends directly from Topshop's flagship store on Oxford Street in London. "Disclosed" is a light blue-gray color which can change hues depending on what lighting you're in. I have been leaning more towards pastels lately and "Disclosed" is perfect. Unfortunately it's not available in the US, unless it has appeared in the Topshop stores here more recently. But if you're ever in England, swing by a Topshop and try it if you can! 


For my Listening section this week, I wanted to shine a light on one particular British duo that I've been a big fan of for a few years - Rizzle Kicks. These two boys (Harley Alexander-Sule and Jordan Stephens) from Brighton, England have created a sound that's catchy, unique, and it makes you want to rap and dance along. Their newest single, due out on August 12, is called "Tell Her." So far it is one of my favorite songs that Harley and Jordan have released and I can't wait to properly enjoy it in my car rather than just listening to it Youtube. The single is definitely something you will want to buy as it does have that summer song vibe. It is most certainly one of my favorite songs at the moment.

The time has come for me to purchase a new agenda for the upcoming fall season. For the last three years I have had a Lilly Pulitzer agenda to hold basically my entire life and all its details within its pages. This year, however, I decided to go on a different route - a Kate Spade-esque route. I first saw Kate Spade's range of agendas last year but I'd already purchased my Lilly planner for the Fall 2013-2014 year. When I visited the Kate Spade, I decided to leave my name - just as a precaution. Not even a week afterwards, they called me to give me the great news that their new line of agendas came in. The one I purchased is a change from Lilly Pulitzer's vibrant colors and prints on almost every page. Kate Spade is known for her simplicity in the details, though I admire the design of the outside cover and the gold dots that line the inside cover. The pages are a nice cream color, and there is a pocket in the front of the planner, a list of celebrations, and a notes section. These agendas are 17-month now, instead of the 12-month ones from last year, so now you can get more use out of it now rather than wait until January. I am definitely happy with this purchase!

This may be something new that I continue with as my blog goes on. I figure it could be a quick post to read about what I could be wearing on my nails, what I'm listening to recently, a quick item I've picked up, or just a favorite that I use over and over. Please let me know in the comments if you like this idea! xx
