Summer Leopard Print Nails :D

Hey everyone, hope you're enjoying our lovely British Summertime..... To cheer myself up from all the drizzle outside i decided to create some cool leopard print nails using the new Konad set that i bought myself off Ebay a few days ago :) Unfortunately i forgot to take photos of me doing it step by step!! :( SO, i improvised and drew a step by step guide on my iPad :) so excuse the crappyness... Unfortunately i STILL don't have photoshop transferred from my old laptop to my new one so its not a very good guide :( But oh well!

Click read more to see how to do it!

LONDON - 19/08/11

Hey y'all, here's a quick photo bomb of our time in London last Friday. We went into LANDAN to celebrate A2 results, walked around Covent Garden, through Leciester Square, Trafalgar Square, and then past the marble arch up the Mall (just like proper royals!!! ;)) Went to see Buckingham palace and then chillaxed in St.James park where we took some OOTD's. Met a friend a bit later and had a super healthy dinner at Hard Rock Cafe, which consisted of Nachos and Fajitas ;)

Austria 2011

AUSTRIA 2011 - At the beginning of August, me and my family went to South-East Austria to visit family etc. We flew to Graz airport and then made our way south to a spa town called Bad Radkersburg, right near the Slovenian border. Austria is a beautiful country, all of the houses had pristine gardens with not a single flower out of place. Of course, where we were, there was not much going on entertainment wise, as it is quite a remote part of Austria, but there were village fetes almost every night in all the surrounding towns and villages, where people come together and celebrate the summer and their community. Usually during the day, we visited tourist sites, such as the tower at Frutten-Gießeldorf, where you could see Hungary, Slovenia, Croatia and Austria from. We also visited Riegersburg Castle and the town centre of Bad Radkersburg, where we did A LOT of walking and cycling. The beauty of Austria really inspired me with my art and I did lots of sketching out there of the flowers and landscapes. We only spent a week out there, but I could've spent a lot longer there, especially in the daily 30 degrees heat! :)

i probably should do a little 'Hi, I'm ______' post, you know tell you my name, what it is that i do... and all that junk. Basically we (Amy and Lauren (I'm Lauren)) started this blog to share photos and write stuff about holidays/travel/fashion/makeup etcetera etcetera :) At the mo Amy is in Austria getting brown (damn you.) while i'm stuck at home watching my tan fade a little more each day :'( sob. I've tried the fake tan, but i'm really not very good at it and it doesn't smell that great either. Anyway, that was completely besides the point...

well. i don't really know what else to say. i would like to say that we live in beverly hills, have celebrity boyfriend's, and have ten gazillion houses all over the world. but the truth is a little/a lot more boring than that. YEAH. so. wow i'm really struggling with this. i've met 'writers block' although i wouldn't really call this writing. haha.

i just got incredibly distracted by google translate. i did not know you could make it talk!! Just had to much fun writing things in english for it to be said in another accent (not language). hmm that's confusing, well i know what i mean :)

Yeah, im gonna wrap this up...

So i was thinking of doing an America Haul, but it was a while ago so i'm struggling to remember what i bought! Anyway, I'm going to try and do it for you tomorrow seeing as i don't really have anything to do atm.... Although i really should be memorising the highway code, i have my first driving lesson on Monday and i'm pretty terrified! haha, but i really want to be able to drive!

im also going to force Amy into writing her own 'intro' when she gets back (she's better at writing than me (not hard)), even though i didn't tell you anything about myself, except that i can't write and get distracted.

xo Lauren :D


Hi guys, so at the beginning of July I went to the USA with my parents from the 2nd to the 15th :) it was definitely one of the best holidays i've been on so far. We started off in New York for four nights over the July 4th weekend which was incredible. the atmosphere was amazing and our hotel was right in the centre of times square.

After NYC we travelled over to Santa Monica, California for another four nights, seriously the most amazing place i think i have ever visited. I really wish i had grown up there, the beach, lifestyle and amazing style made me fall in love with the area. Of course we did the most touristy thing possible and went on a stars home tour, strangely really fun! Beverly Hills is so amazing, we also went on a VIP tour of warner bros which was so cool! Being a huge fan of Pretty Little Liars, ER and Friends meant i got to see where it is all filmed, i even went into Central Perk!!!!! An unforgettable experience, if you're ever in LA it's definitely something that you have to do :).

Unfortunately after four nights our time in Santa Monica was over :'( but then we went to VEGAS! woo!! seriously the most crazy place ever, it all seemed so unreal, it was almost like a little huge pretend world. But so much fun, we stayed in the MGM Signature and the hotel was HUGE, like HUGE huge. Anyway, i just wanted to share with you some photos from the trip (sorry if this becomes a huge photo bomb, i took 1300+ photos on the trip!)

First stop: Primark! I've been pleasantly surprised with this seasons collection, found quite a few bargains :)
