- Simply paint your nails red,
- Wait for them to dry,
- And use the sparkle polish as a top coat.

I was lucky enough to meet Tanya Burr in the Summer of 2013 and when meeting her she was carrying this bag.
I didn't go shopping to purposely buy it, but when i saw it in Zara i felt i had to..! Its such a classic accessory for a girls wardrobe. The black makes it classy and simple looking, and the entire style is so convenient and handy.
I use this bag when i go to college. The pockets at either side mean that my laptop and folder can be easy to find and protected from any damage. The pockets are cushioned which means that if my laptop didn't have a hard case on it (which it does) it would still be protected inside the bag.
The huge compartment in the middle is open and makes it easy to grab things during the day. It has both short straps and a long strap. The bag can fit so much in and is perfect for work, college, school or university. It feels good quality and i know it will last me for a long while.

During my day there we did a little bit of theory and then mainly took part in practical activities. These practical activities were part of cabin crew training and we got to experience what they were like. This was such a rare experience as not many people are lucky enough to go to the Virgin Atlantic Base.
We first met our trainers for the day which were Louise and Pippa, we did a bit of theory and then moved on to the training activities.
The first activity we did was fire fighting. We had to walk through a smoke filled room with all the correct equipment on, we then put out a controlled fire with fire extinguishers that were filled with water just for the training exercise.
A while later we then got the chance to go down the emergency slide that would be used if the passengers needed to evacuate the plane. This slide was just inflated and on a frame for the purpose of training, but it was set at the height of a real 787 dream liner aircraft so that the cabin crew training would know what to expect if they ever had to use the emergency plane whilst on a flight in the future.
After that we went on the same inflated slide that was on its side and being used as a raft. The raft and slide double up to have two uses so can be used on a land or water emergency landing. Whilst on the raft we experienced how hard it was to fit all 23 of us on, then we found out that it actually held up to 75 people! We placed the cover over the top of the raft and managed to do it in 1 minute and 14 seconds which was fairly quick.
We then got to act out some of the things cabin crew did in emergencies on the make shift plane that was made to be just like the inside of a Virgin Atlantic plane. We were shouting comments at our classmates such as;
"heads down, feet back"
"undo your seatbelt, get out, leave everything behind" etc.
This was fairly realistic and seemed quite scary for the classmates acting as passengers, but it meant that we listened to the commands that the cabin crew were shouting and in a real lift emergency situation all the passengers would need to do exactly what the cabin crew were shouting.
Finally to end our day we got the chance to look around the different interior areas of the Virgin Atlantic planes including; economy, premium and first class.
It was a really good experience and opened my eyes so much more to the roles cabin crew have to undertake as many people underestimate this.

Different flowers bloom all year round, but my favourite flowers bloom in summer. Theres so many different types of flowers available to buy in summer that are a variety of colours.
Flowers can change a whole room, they can add so much character and a sense of completion to a room. Flowers can be used and displayed in vases in all different rooms in a house from a bedroom to a kitchen.
Flowers seem to fit in well with summer as everything is much more brighter. Having flowers in my room adds an extra something to my room- almost like an aunament.
Having flowers in my room makes it feel so much more homely and welcoming. They're also so pretty and depending on the colour you choose, they can fit in well to the colour theme of your bedroom.
Depending on where you buy the flowers they will last different lengths of time. Typically the more you spend on a bunch of flowers the longer they should last. But cheaper flower stools like the flower stool I sometimes buy flowers from in Norwich can also be a mixture of amazing and not so good quality. But if the price is low you cant really complain.
