Hormonal Balance (boys beware), a NOTD and some news!

Hi! I can't believe how long it's been since I've posted anything. I am truly a slacker. In my defence I have had a lot going on and still do so posts will continue to be a bit sporadic!

Firstly for those of you who don't follow me on Twitter or aren't friends with me on Facebook - I got engaged! I am very, very, very happy, gobsmacked and excited and I will do a proper post all about it at some point.

Secondly, and this is completely un-nail related but something I had to tell you all about, I started taking Seven Seas Hormonal Balance tablets a few months ago and they have literally changed my (and Maz's!!)life.
I don't know if I've mentioned it before but I have PCOS (polycystic ovaries). PCOS effects women in different ways but one of the ways it effects me is I have very irregular periods. When I do get a period they're very painful and my hormones go COMPLETELY crazy turning me into an irrational mad woman. Even if I don't get the actual period, my hormones go crazy once a month without fail and I used to take it all out on Maz.
After one particularly bad 'pyscho' month I decided to try to find some sort of supplement to try and keep my hormones more under control and came across Seven Seas Hormonal Balance -

"Contains an effective combination of the minerals magnesium and zinc and the key nutrient Vitamin B6, which helps you maintain a healthy hormonal balance so that you feel like yourself, every day of the month."

I bought some, started taking it and WOW! It really works. Like really, really, really works. Not only has it balanced out my hormones so that I don't have the mood swings I was having, I also don't get nearly as irrational as I used to, I don't wake up wanting to kill someone (well not as often anyway!) and I don't overreact as much as I used to.
On top of that, when I get my actual period, there's no pain! Well the odd twinge but nothing compared to what it was like before.
I can't believe it. I was hoping it would help but I had no idea just how much it would. As I said, it has changed my life and made Maz's life far calmer ;)
I had to tell you all about it in the hopes that it can help someone else too. Obviously though everyone's different and it will work to different degrees on people.

I get it from Tescos and it costs £3.99 for 30 tablets (1 a day).
I can't recommend enough for anyone with hormone issues to go out and give this a try! If anyone does try it let me know how you get on.

Lastly, couldn't do a post without any nails at all so here's a NOTD -

Photos were taken after me having worn it for a few days thus the tip wear!
I used OPI's DS Extravagance with konad black special polish and image plate M79.

That's it for this post! Post about my engagement to follow in a few days!

Hope everyone's well and have a great weekend!
