Love this pretty nail colour for spring/summer 2015. Rose Libertine by Rimmel, 60 Seconds Super Shine. 




Matte Me

19 Jan

Hi everyone,

Just a quick post to say I am loving this great lip colour from Sleek, it’s super Matte (the clue is in the name) and makes my lips looks full and soft.

2015/01/img_3859.jpgThis shade is called Petal and it co-ordinates beautifully with my Essie Bobbing for Baubles nail varnish!

Taking the Shine Off

19 Nov

I take good care of my nails and always get a little alarmed when I see natural nails ravaged by years of acrylic damage, they look so sore! Everyone has their own style but I’m afraid false nails are not my thing and with such great products to care for and enhance the appeal of going au natural I kind of think they’re unnecessary.

I am loving matte nails at the moment and got myself a great little matte top coat from H&M, the bottle design is simplistic and this does what it says on the label.

I painted this top coat over one of my favourite colour polishes, Iconic by Revlon and I love the result.



Treasures New & Old

27 Oct


A Saturday spent in the countryside in a small town called Ironbridge meant a trip to a second hand book shop. I adore whiling away the time searching for old treasures and this time came home with a couple of great ones.

I can’t wait to start reading Daphne Du Maurier’s Frenchman’s Creek and Hotel Berlin by Vicki Baum.

After returning to Liverpool I had a short look around the shops on Sunday and picked up this lovely, oversized, envelope clutch from Primark for just £3!

With the opening of the newly improved Zara Liverpool I was able to buy a replacement handbag perfume after using one bottle up entirely, this is Zara Rose and costs £7.99 for 50ml. Using this as one of my daily scents means I can save my special fragrances for memorable occasions.

The pencil was a gift from my lovely best friend and has the Sex and the City quote ‘this love stuff is a motherfucker’. My best friend knows that I have the ability to pluck a Sex and the City quote from my mind to fit almost any situation and this is certainly one I see myself using a lot!

Finally I’ve included a bottle of Topshop nail varnish in ‘Middle Child’, my sister gave me this in my birthday. I am the middle of three girls so it’s perfect and I just love the amazing colour!
