The first bracelet is a double wrap around coral bracelet with gold rounded studs from Accessorize, it was in the sale with 70% off so it was like £3 WOO!
The second one down is a bright pink wrap around with diamanté s and a button fastening. This was again from Accessorize in the sale and it was like £2.30
The thiiiiird one is a bracelet I got off Ebay. You can choose from a range of bracelets and necklaces, and then choose your lettering and colour and a number of other things. The one which I got was in aqua and it was £1.50!!!!!!!! You can find them by going onto... http://stores.ebay.co.uk/lowes-little-shop
The fourth down is an adorable chain bow bracelet from Miss Selfridge. It was £5 for this one. Miss Selfridge have loaaaads of amazing bracelets and they're pretty damn affordable too.
The final bracelet is from Accessorize again and was £4. It's a black thread with a rose gold chain and fastening. :D
That is all :) X

Olympic thing. How exciting :D
|left to right...Penny talk by Essie, Pink fizz by models own, instyle coral by Rimmel, Indian ocean by models own and Golden peach by models own :)|
All of models own nail varnishes' are really different to other colours you usually find from other brands. The colours are a little transparent and require a few coats but for £5 (or 2 for £8 as it is in Boots atm) you can't really complain.
The final two polishes are Penny talk by Essie which is a rose goldey/ copper colour a little expensive at £7.99 and I find it chips easily but the colour is just amazing, and instyle coral by Rimmel. This is one of their 60 seconds nail varnishes and as it says on the tin it dries super fast which is very handy, the colour is beautiful and it lasts quite some time before chipping. It costs £3.69 from Superdrug and Boots. Definitely recommend this one :)

|Essie nail varnish in 'Penny talk'|
Penny talk is one of the varnishes in Essie's mirror metallics range. It's a kind of rose gold/copper kind of colour and is pretty damn opaque so you only need one coat. It is sold in Boots for £7.99 which is pretty pricey for a nail varnish but it is a really nice colour and I couldn't find any dupes in any of the cheaper brands. I've found that it chips really quickly, like after one day of wear there are numerous chips so i'd advice using a topcoat. Other than that, I totally recommend this one!

sunburn (even though it was cloudy and raining...whaaaat?) but in total over 4000 people took part and they have so far raised like £90,000. We did get some YSL perfume and a sample of an expensive brand of moisturiser (supposedly, i've never heard of it) at the end. Here are a few pictures I took on the walk. I gave up after a while because I had to use all my strength to carry on so these are like of the start, a few views on the way and the finish line/medal. We did get a free Gregg's sausage roll and like 5 bottles of water along the way aswell ;) so it was a pretty fab day even if my legs are completely feeling it now.
