My week has consisted of: Writing reviews and blog posts, getting deliveries, new polishes, Eurovision and ASDA - American food and iced coffee - in particular the McDonalds Iced Mocha Frappe!

Firstly, new nail polishes - I have gone a bit nail polish crazy over this past week! I have bought another one of the MUA polishes in the shade 'plum noir' which I like but the formula is a bit streaky - even with two coats. I also bought a Miss Sporty polish (I have heard a lot of good things about them) in the shade '456' - love the shade and the formula! I also have a polish from NYC in the shade 320 blue sky' which is a gorgeous shade but the wear and formula are not great. I also love the mini OPI polish I received in my Birch Box this month.

Iced coffee and American food have been my obsessions this week - especially the iced mocha frappes from McDonalds (I have just finished another one...oops). I think they are about 300 calories each which is a lot but I don't eat the whipped cream that comes on top - I would highly recommended these!  Also we went to ASDA yesterday (which is Walmart in America) and found that they have started selling some American foods such as Mountain Dew, Pop Tarts, Coffee mate etc. Mountain dew is great, I love it!

Finally, Eurovision. As I am from England, we do cringe a bit when 'eurovision' is mentioned because we always come last or second to last! It is kind of a joke in England. Although we have won it a few times in the past and I think the idea of Eurovision was created in England. We had Bonnie Tyler (she looked and sounded like she was drunk). Most of the songs were...not great to say the least but I did LOVE the song from Malta! Greece and Hungary were good too. The worst songs, in my opinion, came from France and Finland - I mean seriously! Obviously everyone has their own opinion and you may like the songs I don't/do - if you are not in Europe you may be able to watch Eurovision on Youtube and I definitely recommend it. I do love how it brings European countries and singers together (yes, I am a bit of a eurovision/euro pop geek!). Overall, the UK didn't do too badly, we had 24 points I think and we were far from the bottom of the list!

I hope everyone had a great week! x

  3. Eurovision is a such a crack up, I'm from Serbia and we've had some amazing songs in the past, but also very cringe-worthy ones. Need to check out the songs for this year!
