models own 50% SALE!

So, remember i blogged a little while ago about a possible Models Own 50% sale, which would be taking place once they hit 50,000 fans on Facebook? Well, they only ruddy went and done it didn't they!


Unfortunately all was not plain sailing. I don't think MO were prepared for this level of hype on their website which lead to them suspending the sale by a couple of days while they installed new servers and other fancy techno mumbo jumbo. Apparently, said servers did not suffice as the website crashed allllll day and basically pissed off a lot of people. However, i can't stress enough how amazing MO have been throughout the whole frustrating process! Honestly, they were absolute legends. My order crashed at the last minute so i contacted them via Facebook and they personally checked that everything had gone through and made the necessary confirmation. What perfect customer service!
They have also been replenishing their stock levels relentlessly throughout the day so the majority of people don't have to miss out on the bits and pieces they wanted, amazing!

I didn't go too mad on my spending spree because times are hard (sob) but here's what i ordered...

You can still take advantage of the sale by liking the Models Own Facebook page. This will then grant you access to the discount code which you will need to enter at the checkout to get your 50% off. Oh, and if you spend over £25 you get free delivery too! Go now!!

keep calm and listen to gallows

I feel it would be completely inappropriate of me to write about anything without mentioning the horrifying turmoil London has found itself in due to thieving malicious thugs. These 'people' are nothing but bullies on a power trip and i truly hope what the PM says is true, and they will be hit with the full force of the law. This behaviour can not be justified in any light, and i genuinely feel sick knowing that i am from the same country as the scum bags who are ruining the lives of innocent members of their own communities. 

I urge everybody with a twitter account to follow their local authority as they will confirm any suspicions or concerns you may have about your safety and the area you live in. I've noticed today that twitter has become a mass of rumours and allegations which just aren't true, so take everything with a pinch of salt unless the police in your area say otherwise.


I've found it quite fitting to listen to the 'Grey Britain' album by Gallows today. The lyrics make sense more now than ever. I'm so excited about the news of former Alexisonfire guitarist Wade Macneil becomming Gallows' new front man. I'll admit, when i found out Frank Carter was leaving the band three hours before i saw them live at this years sonisphere festival, i was utterly gutted (to the point of hurling abuse at him when he came out on stage). I'm a little bit more okay with it now because I'm genuinely stoked to hear what Frank's new band, Pure Love has to offer, and i can't wait to hear Wade's take on the Gallows trademark raw sound.
I was lucky enough to see Gallows at a local venue a few days before Sonisphere with only 99 other people. I'm so glad that the second to last time i saw Frank as the frontman was at such a personal gig, i shall never forget that one!

I listened to Alexisonfire constantly throughout my teenage years and always regarded them as my favourite band before Gallows hit the scene. Now i have the best of both worlds. Whoever would have thought things would turn out this way.

Think of this as a plea. I urge you to tell all your friends about how wonderful Models Own products are so i can go nuts on their website without denting my bank account too badly. Anyone who knows me will totally understand how exciting this news is for me as i am utterly obsessed with Models Own nail varnish. Please help a sister out and let me have a bargain splurge. Just go and like the Models Own facebook page and when they get to 50,000 fans they will have a 50% sale on line! Waaaaaaaaa, SO EXCITING!
