It's been such a long time since I did some nail art so I thought I'd make an effort with these. I took inspiration from my recent trip to Devon where I stayed by the sea. I used dotting tools, thin brushes and even an eyeliner brush. I feel a lot of it looks like something I would've painted when I was younger (especially the sailboat with the sun) but just on a much smaller scale.

I've been pairing my mint dress with different colours to see what works and thought my pink floral tee made a good match for it. I'm also glad that both of the materials are quite thin since we've been having a heatwave here. I've mostly been hiding from the sun and still watching OITNB.
Also, it looks like I'll definitely be going to Hong Kong this time next month to study abroad for the year! I'm nervous and excited and still in a state of not quite believing it's going to happen. I'll be blogging about my adventures there so I'll try not to study too much or melt from the heat and humidity.

Apologies for the lack of posts this week but I was in Paris for the last few days! I didn't have any wifi there so I was away from social media and everything for a while. I didn't miss it that much though since I was in a gorgeous city (although I probably wouldn't have gotten lost as much if I did have wifi). I haven't been to Paris in about 10 years so I had to do all of the touristy stuff again because I could barely remember anything. It was a shame it was grey and rainy most of the time but hey, I'm British, we're used to it. I'd love to go back again when there's better weather, explore some more and experience the cafe culture properly.
