Tag – Sunkissed Summer Tag – July 2014

 Sunkissed Summer Tag

July 2014

I saw this tag on YouTube and thought it looked really fun and decided that I had to give it a go. I’m loving summer now that it is here and by the time this posts I will be in Portugal! I’m really looking forward to some sun, sea and sand! And some much needed R&R! So, onto the Tag questions!

1. What is your go-to product for a sun kissed summer glow? (bronzer, self tanner, etc.)

I love bronzers and my current favourite is my Bronze Block in the shade light from Sleek.

Tag – The Lip Product Addict Tag – June 2014

The Lip Product Addict Tag

June 2014

The lovely Jacquelyn from thelittlescottishcorner tagged me to do the Lip Product Addict tag and it’s really good timing because recently my sister and I have been lip product crazy and have bought loads when we’ve been out shopping together. I’ve always been something of a lip balm addict (see my lip balm collection post here) but recently I’ve been all about lip colours as well.

So this is my current lip product collection minus one or two lip balms which I couldn’t be bothered retrieving from whichever bag or coat pocket they were in when I took the photo. But now, on to the tag!

Haul – River Island, Topshop, Primark, Boots and Debenhams – February 2014


River Island, Topshop, Primark, Boots and Debenhams

February 2014

I’m so excited for this upcoming year, I’ve got a lot of travelling planned. And how does this relate to a haul post on my blog you might ask? Well a lot of the things I’m buying I’m planning ahead to take away with me.

The first thing I want to show is this t-shirt from River Island. It is slightly long and slightly oversized but it’s not huge on me, it’s really comfortable. It’s in grey tones and has a pattern and a picture of cherubs on it. It has the same pattern on both the front and back which I love. It is quite similar in style to the t-shirts which can be seen in my Rhodes Haul but is better quality and the material has a slightly silky texture to it. I’ve worn this to work during a dress down day because I was going straight out with my work friends after work and wanted something fairly dressy and one of the big managers went out of her way to come over and say she liked it. And getting a compliment off her is not something you ignore!

Nail Art – Cactus

Nail Art


It’s been really warm here in northern England for the last few weeks, much warmer than normal, which makes a huge change for the summer. I’m not used to this kind of heat and it’s been really humid and sticky, without the sunshine, as well. And to match the weather (kind of) I painted a pretty cactus design on my nails.

Nail Art – Sailing Boat

Nail Art

Sailing Boat

If anyone read my May Nails of the Month post, then you know I’ve got a real thing for blue nail varnish at the moment. And I wanted to create a design on my nails which incorporated some of my favourite blue nail varnishes and was nice and summery. The result was this Sailing Boat nail art.
