Selling on Shpock.

Do you like carboot sales? Imagine not having to wake up early on a Sunday morning, and having to head out to a (most of the time) rainy, cold fields. Whether you sell or buy, it can be a little bit off-putting to make so much effort. Well as most probably know Shpock is one of the ‘online boot sales’ apps. The reasons why I use it regularly is because it has no service fees and you can choose the payment options. It shows the most local deals near you  so it’s very convenient  if you would like to  collect in person and avoid shipping costs.

Shpock is also very affordable! Almost just as a standard carboot sales, and you can find absolutely anything on here. There’s an option of making offers on each item (bidding) which can save you a bit of money. I have bought a lot of things through this app which I will show in a separate post. Now I would like to show you some of my items which are up for sale and if interested, I’ll put a link to my account at the end 🙂

ESSIE Nail Polishes-Yay or Nay?

Good afternoon! I’m 28 weeks pregnant today! Feeling extremely blessed and happy although so far, today has been very tiring. Not only I’ve had an early-morning shift working in retail on a Black Friday! Then I also headed to hospital where I’ve waited for hours to get my blood tests done and the tiny little heart monitored. Oh my poor, swollen feet 😦

ESSIE! I don’t have time to re-apply you twice a day, and you cost too much to do so!

Essie has manyyy differrent collections to offer, and their colour range is one of the best I came across! Giving my opinion below, I can only speak for the specific products I’ve used so far.

Average price of single Essie nail polish varies between £7.99-£9.99 unless your name is SMARTyna and you shop in TK Maxx for £3.99 😁👌

£3.99  Sorrento Yourself 477 (Nail Colour Resort Collection)

Beautiful, browny nude with a ‘salmon’ undertone. One of my favourite colours. Looks neat, elegant, tidy and most of all perfect for autumn and winter.

I’ve used two coats of this product and it has given me a full-coverage. The brush is long and thin but wide, therefore whole surface of the nail is covered within 2 swipes. Nails are dry after 1 minute (no exaggeration!). It has a very intense smell but that’s nothing unusual.

Essie Good To Go Topcoat £3.99 TK Maxx

Applied on top of ‘sorrento yourself’ and on top of Maybelline polish (glitter visible on tips of my nails). This product is also very fast drying, but smells even stronger than the one above. Gives amazing gel-looking shine and what makes it stand out is the way it feels to the touch; very glossy and smooth.

Overall seem like amazing products, especially for £3.99. Well they are… for a very short time.

This is a day after painting my nails. I haven’t washed any dishes, nor didn’t do much physical work (I’m still a good wifey though!). So this to me is very poor quality. There are many cheaper options out there which won’t chip off for at least 3-5 days. Essie I’m dissapointed. I still love your colours ❤

Whats your experience with this brand? Maybe I’ve bought some badly formulated products? I hope so.

Have a nice day!

Hello everyone, hope you’re all enjoying this strange time of the year between Christmas and New Year’s, when it’s hard to tell what day of the week it is and it just feels like lazy Sunday everyday. I’m here today after about 2 years of break, with quiet a few plans regarding my blog. The main one is not to abandon it again! haha

Today I wanted to show a few bits and bobs I recommend to make your room a bit more cosy especially if you’re on a budget, you’re a student and would like to add few accents to your room to make it more home, or you just love to grab a good bargain like me!

White fairy lights, in a glass jar. Gives the magical and delicate effect for the entire room. Not sure where it’s from but you can get the battery operated lights in Pound Land ! and place them in any glass jar/vase. Smell wise? I always like to have some sort of Yankee product as it’s very presentable and smells delicious 🙂

White Plaited Basket £3.00 from Tiger. Some lacy fabric around it and big polka dots…… Ta-dah!!

That is it for today, I know it’s not much but I’ve taken these photos with my phone camera therefore only a few turned out okay.

Thank you for stopping by, hope this gave you some ideas and I’ll see you next time !
