Random Round-up: What a Day :)

Hellooooo All :)

What a day!

So, I was going to have a break from posting tonight, but I am a Blogging Addict, so here is a post!

Firstly, today has been exciting :)
You may have seen last nights post on my Batiste Cherry inspired nails...

Well, through the wonder that is Twitter, Batiste discovered my nails and loved them :) Yay! I received some lovely comments, a re-tweet, a follow, a FB share and they are sending me a Cath Kidston cherry umbrella...!  
Too happy :)
That totally cheered up my work day :)
Words can not describe how happy I am, just to receive acknowledgement and lovely comments was enough!

I'm new to Twitter, joined last week and am slightly hooked now! To receive my random Tweets about 'Allsorts', follow me @ameliasallsorts :)

Calm me down now...

Next...Kelly's Nail & Blog:

My bestest, Kelly is a Doctor Who obsessive...
So, it made me laugh when she came into work today with this amazing creation, inspired by a photo she found:

 How cool is her nail?! She added the face and Fez with biro pens :)

She now has her own blog too, which is all about Doctor Who, her adventures, set visits, reviews, meet & greet experiences etc and the CONVENTION which she is going to next week!
Check out her blog :)


Tonight I popped to Tesco.
I was craving the new Rockstar Xdurance energy drink, as I discovered it at Tesco in Telford on Friday night Tesco DOES NOT HAVE ANY ROCKSTAR!!!
Anyway, I got a few bits for mum and dad (oh, looking for eggs was great fun! Determined not to look silly asking staff, I did as E.T. would and phoned home 'mum...where would I find eggs in Tesco??'
Whilst there I picked up some makeup wipes as I was in need and got a few other little bits:

Glaceau Vitamin Water, with Jessie J cool?! On offer at £1 each. The wigs are to advertise a competition to win tickets to party with Jessie J.

 - Mummy Birthday Card, for my friend Jamie (he doesn't know yet but will be finding that in his letter box tomorrow!). We have a little joke and call each other Mum/Mummy/Mamma/Mother :) So I decided to get him that card haha!
- Kleenex makeup wipes, on offer at £1.49 for 24 :)
- Vivo Cosmetics Lipgloss 'Frosted Pink' £1.99 - I bought my sister this for Christmas and it is gorgeous, so I treated myself :) Last one in there!

I also spotted a LOAD of new(?) nail polishes in the Barbara Daly section that I plan to purchase some of very soon! They were all named after funfair/carnival attractions and look amaze.

Grazia Mag:

Mum rang me at work today and said that a magazine had arrived, completely confused...I then remembered I claimed a free copy of the latest Grazia through a Garnier email a while back.

Random - Urbex:

This is totally random, but tonight I watched a program on Dubai's debt and they showed what was going to be a massive Disney theme park that was then abandoned and it reminded
me of something I discovered via an Urbex website last year...

 More photos and article here :)

How cool is this place? Ok, you may not agree... I am a big fan of Urbex (Urban Exploration, Google it ;))

Anyway, that's all for now :) Time to catch up on comments then other blogs! Thank you all for reading my blog and for your comments :)
I really do appreciate it!

    I love them Jessie J bottles... too cute!

    1. No problem :) You don't have to... haha!

      Oh do! YDT ;) You could get the whole set that I have from Argos...that comes with 8 colours (with tip and fine brush duo tops), plus glitter, rhinestones, equipment, DVD etc.
      Or Models Own WAH nail art pen?
