Lifestyle | Holland and Barrett Buddies - Part 2: My Goodies - Beauty & Food Haul

You may have seen a post a couple of weeks ago explaining that I have been chosen to take part in the #HollandandBarrettBuddies campaign (woopwoop!) I have been paired up with the lovely Dani from health and fitness blog This Woman's Word, and we've each been given £100 to choose goodies for the other from the HUGE range at Holland and Barrett (pretty cool eh?!) Well I thought it was about time I gave you a good look at the amazing things Dani chose for me*. 
Get ready - there's a lot!!!

Midweek Manicure | Primark Aztec False Nails & Naileen Ultra Adhesive Tabs

I've never tried false nails before but have seen a lot of buzz in the blogosphere about Primark's bargain £1 stick on nails. I decided I had to try them out for myself and chose these very funky turquoise and black Aztec patterned ones.

Lifestyle | Mr Nutcase Personalised Phone Case


I am sadly one of those people that is always always on my phone. Seriously if aliens came down to Earth and based their opinions on the human race purely by observing me, they'd be forgiven for thinking that all humans come with a little white rectangle at the end of their right hand. I was recently contacted by Mr Nutcase to see if I would like to design and create my own custom iPhone case to keep my favourite gadget safe and stylish while  I call / text / tweet / Instagram / Facebook / blog / online-shop away. Yes please!

Midweek Manicure | Neon & white chevron nail art

Yes I've been playing with my Models Own Polish for Tans Collection again! I just can't seem to get enough of these polishes, especially when teamed with a white base. My favourite is definitely turning out to be Beach Bag, the fluorescent coral of the collection, and I've once again used it to create some jazzy festival ready nail art (you can see my other designs here and here).

Beauty | Seventeen Limited Edition Lip Crayons

You may have seen in my InstaLIFE roundup post on Sunday that I gave myself a little Friday treat - some beauty goodies from Seventeen. They are currently running an offer where if you buy 2 products you get a free Limited Edition Lip Crayon (and there's two beautiful shades to choose from - hot pink and a coral colour). I picked up the pink one on Friday and couldn't resist nipping in yesterday to nab myself the coral one too!

First off - Happy Father's Day everyone! I hope everyone enjoys celebrating their wonderful dad's / being a dad with their families today! I came back to my parent's house last night to spend the evening with my dad - who is AWESOME btw - before taking him out to lunch with my brother today. I'm sure there'll be some dad-selfies (delfies?!) in next week's InstaLIFE round up, so let's get on with today's!

Lifestyle | One Direction Where We Are Tour - Wembley Stadium Friday 6th June 2014

am so excited to be writing this post as it was a complete and utter surprise that I go to see One Direction perform their Where We Are Tour at Wembley Stadium last Friday night! If you follow me on twitter (@emsypickle) you'll know that I love a good twitter retweet competition - #SorryNotSorry I have won a few goodies this way, but never imagined I would actually win @Little_Mistress's RT comp to win tickets to see the world's biggest boyband perform at one of the biggest stadiums in Europe! Wahooooo!!

Midweek Manicure | Key trend: White nails

I've always been a massive fan of white nails. They always look so cool, go with any outfit, and provide the perfect base for some jazzy nail art. White nails are huge news at the moment so I thought I'd give you a quick look at some of the white polishes in my collection.

New blog design & WIN a new design for your blog


As you may have noticed emsypickle.co.uk has had a little bit of a facelift! I've been blogging "properly" for coming up to a year now, and whilst I've had a lot of fun updating and jazzying up my design and layout myself, I decided that it was time to get the professionals in! I was given the opportunity to work with the wonderfully talented Kotryna Bass, and I'm so happy with my new blog look and feel*! And even better, Kotryna has also kindly said I can give one of you the chance to win a blog make over from her too!

Lifestyle | Restaurant Review - Hakkasan Hanway Place

My boyfriend and I love going out for dinner, but only really go all out and splurge on a more expensive meal once in a while. I've always wanted to go to the Michelin star awarded Chinese restaurant Hakkasan, so when my boyfriend surprised me by taking me there to celebrate our anniversary I was beyond excited! Now would it live up to my expectations?!
