I mentioned in my last outfit post that I was finishing my internship with Styloko in London and moving back home for the time being until I find a part-time job to keep me busy. I have my flat until July so it seems like a bit of a waste to come home for good. It's incredibly difficult to find any form of job in London but I'm keeping my fingers crossed as I miss it already!

Today I just popped up to my local shopping centre to pick up some essentials such as toiletries and make-up. I was absolutely dying to wear my new platform trainers from Asos which arrived in the post on Friday. I saw a similar pair in Topshop but I really wasn't fond of the canvas fabric so chose these leather ones instead. I love the chunky platform heel and they really fit in with the current sports luxe trend for this season. I have paired them with a sheer striped crop top and my high-wasited lycra leggings. I used to wear these all the time, but since my new obsession with Joni jeans they have taken a backseat. I have to say, I washed my black Joni jeans for the first time on Friday and all of the elastic threads seem to be hanging out. Has anyone else experienced this? I really want to exchange them for a new pair but not sure if I have kept the receipt. I'm really gutted because I love them so much and hope this doesn't happen with my blue and pink pair.

After removing my false nails last week, I noticed just how dry and damaged my nails were. Therefore, this week I'm giving them a little breather and hopefully this will help them to regain some strength. I hate how my nails look without falsies or a polish but they are in desperate need of a break. I purchased the Nails Inc repair kit for Dry and Damaged nails so this should also help to rejuvenate them. Does anyone have any other good nail repair recommendations?
