Rock Those Nails!

I am currently obsessed with Nail Rock's nail stickers/wraps!

The numerous designs have always wowed me, but it wasn't until I tried them that I fell in love with them.
Although my first try involved a number of hours (I was fraffing around in between the process lol) and a few creases, I would definitely use them again nonetheless.

Inside each packet there is a set of the pattern nail wraps, an info leaflet, a mini nail buffer, cuticle pusher and a nail prep wipe (not pictured).

Basically after your nail is free from nail polish, push back cuticles, buff your nails to get rid of the shine, clean them with the nail prep wipe, then start applying the wraps.

I used my wonderful Chinese scissors to cut around each nail shaped sticker and slowly stuck them on, firmly pressing and stretching across as I go along. I found it a little difficult to iron out the creases as the nail is naturally curved.

Nail Rock claims that these wraps can last up to ten days. The above two pictures show my nails after application and the second one is after a week.

After putting my hands through a vigorous workout-my job involves a lot of chipped nail polish and broken nails-so after a week, it is only showing a little wear and tear. I have the urge to always press them down, so I think that helps. At first I was worried it would peel off straight away as soon as my nails hit water, but that is not the case at all. Sometimes when I'm washing my hair; I feel the edges curl up, however with a little press, it's as good as new.

As you can see, I have more designs to try out!
Have you tried nail wraps before?

Pixel World.


On my adventure with Yasumi, we explored her favourite art supplies store Cass Art. Down the stairs to the bottom floor lies the children's art section, the floor we spent the most time in.

I had spotted the Nanoblocks kits before in Artbox, but when Yasumi pulled out the kits she bought previously - and at a cheaper price - I went along and brought some too.
Nanoblock are tiny blocks that create the most intricate and adorable models, you can choose from famous landmarks, musical instruments or animals.

 Sorry, pic heavy!

Grand Piano.

Tokyo Tower.

Haha sorry for the pic spam, but it's so interesting to look at at any angle.

I spent a couple of hours during my day off creating these models, I found it really relaxing and had a lot of fun watching the scattered blocks come together.

This is only the start of our miniature pixelated world, watch this space for new additions! :D

I got the Grand Piano kit for about £6, and Tokyo Tower for about £13.

Check out Yasumi's Pixel World too.

Adventure time with Worship Blues!

I'm doing a Worship Blues special this week! 

Last week I met up with the wonderful Yasumi. Whenever I'm with her I feel like a tourist, she guilds me through parts of London that are unfamiliar to me and I have so much fun!

We started in Angel, along Upper Street, onto a bus to Marylebone then Oxford Street.

If you follow my Instagram or saw my previous Instagram post, you will have seen some of this photos before. Those of you who haven't, here are some I took on our trip.

Milkshake and Toastie from Issy's Milky Way in Islington. It's is such a cute 50s style American cafe, the third photo is what it looks like from the outside as we couldn't take pics from inside :(  The reflection makes it hard to see, but the display is filled of vintage packaging, figures and snacks!
The last photo is of vintage books, games and cases tucked away in a corner.

Funny and quirky signs.
And in an amazing toy shop with old board game packaging.

Vintage tin!!
Alessi heart spoons.

"This is a Secret Worth Sharing!"

In the depths of North London lives a spectacular lady who is working throughout the day building her shop from scratch and making the most wonderful things.
Miss Worship Blues has re-opened her workshop and is now a full time crafter. She is full of ideas and creativity, creating anything and everything from jewellery to clothing!

Of course I had to make a order!

How gorgeous is the packaging?!

Of course I had to grab this, I will not be using this as it's way too pretty for that XD

I love the black matte enamelled birdie <3

More pretty packaging....

These stickers are really easy to apply, and are so pretty!
Yasumi has written a very helpful post about how to use them.

I am so happy with order! As always through the packaging and the products you can see how much thought and effort goes into making everything, it makes the shopping experience much more satisfying :)

So go check out Fushigi Shop and go quick! :D
Oh oh and as Jian promptly reminded me, Fushigi is updated regularly with new items added daily! <3
