New Additions | A.P.C. Demi Lune

Purse: Cos

Isn't it pretty?! Currently I may or may not be gazing lovingly across the room at my new bag...
I know i sound unhinged but I am suffering with a cold so I'm blaming my slightly odd behaviour on exhaustion and being a bit delirious.
Anyway back to the bag, it happened to be my birthday this week and my boyfriend was kind enough to surprise me with this bag and purse.

I first saw the A.P.C. Demi Lune bag when we were in New York a few weeks ago. I walked past a girl who was wearing it and basically it looked so great that I needed to have a look at the bag for my self. She was super stylish and I was sure that if I wore the bag then I would look equally as chic as she did. (Please tell me I'm not the only person who thinks like that?!)
So I went on a little jaunt to the A.P.C. shop on Mercer St in Soho, dragging my boyfriend along too, had a look at it, loved it, looked at the price tag and swiftly put it down.

Well fast forward to my birthday and look what he presented me with. Along with the bag he also go me a very cute little purse from Cos to go with it. I have an unnecessarily large purse, which is usually not an issue as my handbags that I use on a daily basis are always on the giant size as well. But unsurprisingly my everyday purse won't even fit into this bag never mind leave space for anything else, so he wisely he got me a smaller card holder/wallet hybrid to use with it. 

Now I just need to streamline my makeup bag and declutter all those other unnecessary things I seem to cart around with me but never actually use or need!

New Nails | Nail Lounge & Spa

All by Sotira at 'Nail Lounge & Spa'

This post is long overdue, and I mean really long! I started getting my nails done by Sotira exactly a year ago, (yes I checked, thanks for the date stamps Instagram).
And I have had many different incarnations of colours and lengths, with extensions and without but I can say now I wouldn't go to anyone else for all things nails related.

Sotira really is amazing at what she does, I started with her getting gel extensions and never had one issue, they lasted really well and I kept them up for a fair few months. And I would like to add this was while working in retail, anyone who has worked in a shop knows what a battering your hands take, and I never had any break, ping off or any chips.
I really love the look of super long claws but we all know they aren't hugely practical. Now I just go with gel colour, and I don't know if I could go back to regular nail polish.
As someone who feels naked without my nails painted it's just one less thing to think about. I mean who doesn't want a perfectly shiny finish with no chipping that lasts for weeks?

The main motivation for this post is that Sotira has now opened her own place in Brighton (on London Road) and I couldn't be happier for her. It's newly refurbished and everything is shiny and new!
A lot of people can do nails, and I'm sure many can do them well but she is just so damn lovely and clearly passionate about what she does. I always have such a laugh and a generally really great experience with her. And if you know me  there is nothing I hate more than forced and painful small talk!

I'd like to add that this isn't sponsored and I have always been and will continue to be a paying customer. If someone is great at what they do then more people should know about it! Just don't all rush at once, I still want to be able to get an appointment!
