I went to Amsterdam a while back and never got a chance to share them, so here they are. I mainly looked at crazy architecture, crazier graffiti and ate sugared delights. The city has a lovely atmosphere and the country itself is a visual overload I find it breathtaking, its definitely worth a trip if you haven't been. I already want to go again there is so much to see.
3 top places in Amsterdam, according to me.
1. The supermarket - its seems strange but I love going to foreign food shops to see what different food they have. Unfortunately I forgot to take pictures, but they had some awesome sweet sprinkles -for toast!
2. Food stalls - there were loads of little stalls all around the city and it was way cheaper than sitting down to eat somewhere, and you get to sample a bigger range of food.
3. The sex museum - this is the most surreal museum I have ever been to, definitely something you wont find anywhere else in the world. I pretty much laughed my way through the entire place!

Been pretty busy at the moment juggling 5 assignments, so I feel like a very nerdy clown at the moment. And I've come to the realisation that MAYBE it wasn't the best idea of mine to start a blog when im trying to complete my final year at uni. I feel a tad like Ruby from the grat British bake off, except im not studying philosophy and im not baking avidly. But in a way its nice to be busy with loads of things, that way I don't have time to ponder and procrastinate.
But I have to admit working really hard and seeing time FLY before my eyes has made me more aware of how much time I wasted in the the past. So, im going to start posting more often - dare I say once a week!!
In other news: Still feel like rocking skirts cause I literally don't care how cold it is. And i felt like wearing my Mums vintage jacket because I was kinda feeling the tacky gold chain vibe. And what can be more eye watering than pairing it with a leopard print top? Overall I felt pretty 90's / Lilly Allen - esque chic

If you're reading this from the UK then im sure you aware the weathers turned awful over the past few days. And maybe walking around Manchester on Thursday with a short pleather skirt for Vogues fashion night out, WASNT the brightest idea I had this week. (Along with drinking too much and binging on sushi). So I decided to dress up like it's still summer, well kind of. That is a jumper in the top right corner BUT it is a really wide knit so its practicality a boob tube.
In other news. .
Things I love right now: Halloween, gogglebox, healthy smoothies, the new syle Louis Vuitton style handbags, eggs benidict, leopard print, ridiculously over sized sack dresses, and pretending its still summer
Things I hate: being hungover, the rain, unfair people, shiny plastic coats (sorry!) And finally halogen ovens (mine just blew up!).
What is everyone else loving or hating now the colds setting in? Comment below and let me know!

Its that time of the year again where the colds trying to set it. Which means its the perfect weather for me to go outside in the morning, to get GTA 5 for my other half. Not. But as a reward for undertaking this morning mission I decided to treat myself to a new set of nails. FINALLY!
Now, I did some research on Nexgen nails when i saw the leaflet. Strong nails which allow your natural nails to grow and become stronger. Whilst maintaining a forever shine. Yes, I have to admit I thought this was a joke, until I looked and found their website. New to the UK, only a few nail places stock this at the moment, but im sure that won't last long.
The overall process was really easy and relaxing and not as eyebrow raising as getting standard acrylics. Plus there was no overwhelming chemical smell. And walking out with all your senses intact is allways a plus right?
I was really impressed by the results, my nails are super shiny and have this beautiful nude shimmer and irredesence to them. Not wanting to paint over the natural beauty of the nails I decided on using some glitters to complement them instead. I raided my make-up box for evey holographic, silvery, sparkly shade I owned and got glitter-ing
The final result was an eye watering set of digits that I cant take my eyes off!
Ill update soon to let you know how they grow and if they're any better than acrylics.
Follow me in the meantime @glitterontoasty for updates on the nails and much more!
