This Month...


This month I've been to two weddings and celebrated my Dad's birthday!

There was a mere week between my cousin Sam and my Grandad's wedding, it was all go as you can imagine!
Here is a photo of me and my dad on the beautiful golf course where one of the weddings was held. The sun even came out for an hour!
My dress is from NoAgg.com and my wedges are from New Look.

Last night I went to a lovely pub near my house to celebrate my Dad's birthday with my whole family. I bought him a bottle of his favourite whiskey that he never tires of! I also saw this sweet hanging ornament in a cute little boutique near where I work and had to buy it and I'm sure my dad teared up a bit inside!

Recent Purchases


First of all, how does everyone like my new blog layout? I love it!

Something else I've been doing this week is shopping, of course. I'm here to give you all my reviews, good or bad, on the products I've bought.

I've been looking for Vita Liberata fake tan for ages since I found out it's what Binky from Made in Chelsea uses. I found it in Boots last week and bought the dark mousse for a purse pleasing £22.50. The tan spread far and had a lovely smell. It went dark straight away and developed further over the next 4-6 hours. When washed off it left a glowing even tan. I would definitely recommend it to you!

After seeing reality tv star Tom Pearce tweet numerous times about his online shop, noagg.com, I decided to give it a try. A lgorgeous scoop back bodycon dress instantly caught my eye and I didn't hesitate to buy when I found that it was only £10.49! When the dress arrived it was a different colour than I expected. I thought it was going to be navy and white but it turned out to be grey and white, not a huge deal though after falling in love with it when I tried it on, excellent quality! Below is a photo of me sporting the dress at a recent wedding!

The L'oreal Matt and Messy Salt Spray advert on TV had me looking for this product for weeks. It seemed to be sold out everywhere, must be good I thought. However, when I found the item in Boots and took it home to try, it was a disaster. This product did nothing but make my hair dry and smell awful. No waves or sexy bed head appeared, such a disappointment. DO NOT BUY.

Finally, my big splurge of the week was this bright blue Versace bag. It's fun for summer and has two big compartments for all my things! It's really good and for £142 it should be! The only thing I could say is that it may be even better with a long carrier strap. Also I was able to check the authenticity just in case I wasn't sure.

Gorgeous Glitter Nails


Recently I've become a huge fan of glittery nails. I've sported them for two weddings, three parties and a BBQ this month. They are simply fab for every occasion!
To get these nails I use glitter pots, not normal glittery nail varnish. They are available from all great nail salons or Amazon if you're looking for a bargain! They are cheaper and come in a wider variety of colours. They are also never ending!
In this post I'm going to show you how to apply the glitter in the best way possible.
Choose a colour and let's go!

What you need:
  • Nail Varnish
  • Glitter pots
  • Water
  • Cotton Buds
  • Clear top coat
First of all, paint your nails with a base coat and then your desired top coat of colour. Apply two coats if needed then wait for them to dry.
Then add an additional top clear coat and whilst still wet, dip a cotton bud into the water then straight into the glitter. Be quick!

Ensure you wait until your nails are fully dry before adding another top coat and then let your nails dazzle!
