Currently watching: Have I Got News For You

Hello ladies,

Look what was waiting for me when I got home today:

Ooh. The box is ridiculously large but never mind. I read about Ciate nail polish on a couple of blogs and one of them mentioned the fact that although they retail for £9, they are often heavily discounted on the Asos website. Of course I had to have a look and found Asos Paint by Ciate on sale for £1. There were six colours available and I chose Lily (green), Blake (pink) and Lauren (blue). I know I've said before that I don't really like blue polish but I just felt like having these as they were so cheap. Additionally, postage was free! Can't wait to try them.

And what's this? Oh, my new office stationary. Lovely.

I love my new calculator.

How has your week been? My week's been very good. I was auditing a new client for four days. My superior on this job was very helpful and good at explaining what I needed to do and why I was doing it so I had a good understanding of how my work fitted in to the overall audit programme. I even managed to make up a complex (for me) formula on Excel. I don't remember it exactly but it was something like IF (E5<(D5*0.5),E5,(D5*0.5)). Who knew you could put words in formulae?
And today I was back in the office for a study day so that was a nice and relaxed end to the week.
Bye for now,


  1. Heh, bargain! Can't wait to see the colour turnout.
    You know, it would be a great idea for me to buy a stapler remover too. I currently use my index nail which is pretty much non-existent now.

  2. I really wanted to get some of these. But I couldn't decide on a colour I liked because I had so many that were similar! Clearly I'm buying too many! lol xx

  3. I love your blog and enjoy reading the posts! Thanks for posting your bargains! I love these colors and have always wanted to try these nail polishes! cant wait for swatches

    Follow me and ill follow you!
    (i just started and could use some followers!)

  4. awww, i love getting packages! those colors are amazing! i had a pretty good week. just caught the cold yesterday, though. but anyways, i hope you have a great weekend!

    <3, Mimi

  5. i love it when i check the mail and there's a package for me! :D these are just great buys.


  6. Cute packaging! Can't believe the nail polish has little bows!

  7. Yay for £1 nail polish! good old ASOS

  8. Definitely think you should invest in a staple remover Amy and save your nail!

    Nothing wrong with building up a big nail polish collection Olivia ;-)

    Welcome aboard Toes That Twinkle and thanks for your kind words. I'll definitely be checking out your site :-)

    Glad you had a good week Mimi! Hope you recover from your cold soon!

    I agree Carrie, it's always nice to come home to find a nice package or letter :-)

    I think the bows are definitely a big part of the attraction of these polishes Girlie :-)

    It's actually the first time I've used ASOS Laura but if they have more bargains like this I'm sure I'll become a regular customer...

  9. usually im not a big fan of painting my fingernails cos of work being a dentist and all...but seeing as im jobless...and looking at yr blog with pretty nail colours...well, today, in 5 mins, I am going to paint my nails hahaha

  10. Yeah I went all crazy and ordered most of the things I've been wanting to try. Didn't realise I looked at the photo that most things are in twos. I think it will keep me busy.
    I would never have bought the nail polish without seeing you don it that time. So girly but not quite hot pink or baby pink

  11. I think I'm going to place an order when they have free postage again. Really want to try some of Accessorizes new polishes too


Reading your comments makes my day, leave me one to have your say :-)
