Pinch me I am dreaming... I suspect this may be what a cat lovers paradise might look like. When I heard about the Cat Cafe coming to Manchester a couple of months back I knew I had to book tickets. I mean what could be more perfect than sipping a cup of coffee whilst being surrounded by lots of beautiful cats?

I love repeat LOVE having a wave of creativity hit me. I can just be taking a shower and then WHAM it all comes to me at once. I have found that when it comes to making use of this creativity being organised is key. It's all very well having lots of ideas racing around your mind but if you're not careful these ideas can swim off far, far away, never to be seen again. Therefore we have to catch them and pull them out of our brains and pour them onto paper. And to do that we have to be organised.

A visit to duty free has always been somewhat of a tradition in my family, it's the official starting point where you can escape reality and really treat yourself. Since I was little and buying miniature Barbie perfumes I have always enjoyed the experience of duty free as there's nothing more satisfying whilst on holiday than being able to purchase something a little more luxurious for yourself and gift sets that are exclusive to duty free.

Although my holiday was back in June and I had already indulged in some Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium and a miniature collection of Chloe, I was lucky enough to experience duty free again this time in the comfort of my very own home thanks to World Duty Free. I was very kindly invited to an event in Birmingham airport but sadly couldn't go so instead they sent me some amazing goodies. Imagine the heart eye emoji... Because that is exactly what my face was like when I came home and opened the parcel.

Inside was just about everything you should be looking for this Summer whilst in Duty Free and I decided to share them with you all today in what I think are the duty free essentials.

So what exactly are the duty free essentials?

NAILS | OPI Retro Summer Set £16.35

OPI is genuinely one of my favourite nail brands and I always find saying you're wearing an OPI nail varnish a bit fancier and a sure way to make people Ooh and Ahh. This is the Retro Summer collection which includes 6 different shades all representing how we might feel throughout the Summer: SPF XXX: A blend of red/orange, Towel Me About It: A bright yellow tone, Sailing  & Nailing: A light tone baby blue, Flip Flops & Crop Tops: An elegant pink, What's The Double Scoop: A dusky pink and my favourite of the collection: I'm Getting Tan-Gerine: A medium shade of orange with a creme finish.

B&M are becoming one of my favourite, go-to places when it comes to home accessories. It's amazing what you can find and their prices are ridiculously good. It's hard when you want the perfect home but the price tag just won't allow it; but discount stores such as B&M's are a fabulous way to save pennies yet achieve the interior look you want.

Hello Kitty to me is the epitome of all things cute and girly. So imagine my joy when I discovered that OPI had created some super sweet shades for a Hello Kitty collection. There are twelve colours in the collection which range from pretty pinks, bright yellow, blue, red, white and jet black. The latter are less appealing to me as opposed to the pink and glittery shades. I have been wanting some of these nail varnishes for a while and the other day whilst browsing in TK MAXX I saw this nail duo set with perhaps the sweetest toe separators ever (if they are in competition with one another that is) and the price was how much it would probably be for just one stand alone varnish. I can't specifically remember how much I paid but I think it was around the £15 range. Needless to say it was a done deal at a price I couldn't refuse.
