More nail polishes!


This is my idea of  buying "no more nail polishes"!!!!!


I wish I could resist but its like being a kid in a sweet shop!
And when they put offers on I just cant refuse!!!
(Think I'm also developing a slight Barry M obsession)


The Barry M offer was spend over £6.00 and get a free limited edition polish.
And the NYC were two for £2.99



Whilst in Superdrug I  also thought I would give this a try




Then obviously.......Primark


Sandals £4.00
Nude flats £6.00



Basic black blouse £8.00


I'm setting myself the challenge
to buy no more nail polishes till at least October
Its going to be hard!!!

Joe Browns Summer Sale......




This is my Summer lust list
from the Joe Browns sale







With a budget of £100 this is what I would buy. 
What would your choices be?




Chance Of Romance Dress £29.95 
I just love the print on this dress, very tropical. Just perfect for the evening on holiday or just summer in general.

Fabulous Cut Out Tote Bag £19.95
I don't actually own a white bag and this would slot into my wardrobe very nicely, it would go with just about anything.

Beautiful Eastern Necklace £9.95
I'm a bit of a statement necklace girl at the moment and this one is so cute I just couldn't leave it out.

Fabulous Printed Flip Flop £3.95
You can never have enough flip flops!! Such a girly floral print too

Vintage Floral Jean £14.95
I adore these jeans, as many of you know I'm a floral freak and these are just so pretty and fill my floral passion completely.

Wonderful Summer Wedge £17.95
Summer just screams wedges!! The perfect brown shade to go with just about anything in your wardrobe.




I do love a good bargain and Joe Browns Sale has certainly hit the spot for me.

Operation LOB finished!


I finally went to the Hairdressers on Saturday and I did it :)
I went for the LOB I've wanted for a while


I love it The only thing I wasn't keen on was the way she curled the right had side of my hair
but that's just me being fussy as usual....he.....he....
Is it just me or is anyone else never keen on the way the hairdresser styles it?

I usually wash it again the next day and style it the way I like it, this photo was the next day but unfortunately someone poured far too much wine down my throat the night before :) and I was feeling a little worse for wear here. Hence very little make up and looking very dehydrated.......







Just need to dye those pesky grey's again and I will be good to go


Hope you all had a great weekend

First St Tropez!


So like I said in my last post I went to the shops to get some kind of fake tan for my incredibly pale legs. I opted for the St Tropez classic bronzing mousse, I've never tried this range before but had read nothing but good reviews on it and also it was on offer in Superdrug. They have got offers on all their tanning ranges at the moment, I may have to pop back and stock up before the offer ends.





I ran into Boots to pick up two of my favorites




I need to start parking somewhere else so I don't walk past Primark!!

I picked these up


A couple of basic t-shirts which were £3.00 and £3.50
and a pair of brown sandals at £8.00



I wish I could just buy the one thing I actually go for 
but I never do, I'm very easily distracted .....he.....he.....

Sunshine & Florals



Well the thank god for some sun

At the weekend me and the Hubby went out for a stroll along the river with our little poochie
and before the rain came down we stopped for lunch along the way
A very enjoyable day


This is about as much as I get my legs out until I fake tan 
(which I purchased yesterday)

I love these jeggings, they are from last year, they were a pressie from my Sons Girlfriend Danielle
You can see them here




Also my favorite accessory at the minute is this necklace I got from eBay



It was very cheap, under £3.00

Yet another Collection lasting perfection concealer review!!!




I bought this concealer just to give it a try as its SO big in the beauty world I wanted to see if it was as good as everyone makes out. And I said to myself I wont do a review on it as it has probably got that many reviews that your all sick of seeing them but after using it for some time now I feel I just have to share my little points.


I  decided to try it out as a substitute for my Benefit erase paste. As many of you know I suffer with dark circles (the bain of my life!!!) The erase paste has only ever been the only concealer that has ever come near to covering them up.....until now.....the Collection lasting perfection concealer is well worth all the hype, usually I'm so disappointed by products that have been hyped up so much but definitely not this!!


It has a doe foot applicator



In fact I would go as far to say its better than the Benefit, it is a lot more creamier which is a lot better for my aging skin especially under the eyes, less cakey and quite light reflecting. I think it also has much better staying power.

This concealer will save me a fortune coming in at £4.19 as apposed to £20.50 for the Benefit.

So from now on the money I save on not buying the erase paste and can use on 
Benefits lovely blushers instead ........happy days :)

Have you tried it? what do you think of it?

I've been a bad blogger



Sorry my posts have been rather sparse of late, as many of you know I launched my wedding flower website a few weeks ago, if you didn't know you can see it here. 

Well since then its been a little bit manic to say the least!!
Surprisingly the business has sort of hit the ground running and I'm now collaborating with a wedding planner and I've been rather busy since, so unfortunately my blog has taken a bit of neglect.
I've missed not blogging, but more than anything I've missed not being able to catch up with reading all your posts.

So today I'm going to put my time management skills through their paces and get myself organised and get back on track!!!
