Glitter fever...

The first product I shall talk about is a new nail varnish I have bought. I was looking for a full on glitter polish for my bday meal next week as every birthday girl deserves full on glitter ( even at ahem 27 eek ) and found a great affordable one in miss sporty 'sparkle touch' that only cost £1.99, now I know the packaging may not be dresser worthy and admittedly it did take 5-6 coats to get the desired affect although these did dry very quickly but I am really pleased with the finished look and i am also going to try it layered over a nude varnish and play about with different colours under this as I think you could achieve some really pretty finishes. It is finished with Barry M top coat.


A question of style


Style to me is timeless where as fashion changes with the season, think of Audrey Hepburn... now imagine seeing her walking down the street in 2012,  you would look at her as a chic stylish women many of us aspire to be more like, now think of Madonna mid 80's - the hair, the lace the heavy make up, you get my drift! Now seeing her walking down that same street you would think she was on a hen night in Blackpool -at best! But at the time she was the epitome of cool, girls wanted to be her men wanted to sleep with her. This is why investing in excellent quality staples - bags,shoes and coats that may cost more initially, but if they last a lifetime in the sense of quality and style stakes they pay for themselves.......which is why I need a Chanel bag in my life ...sigh!, the high street offers so many well made fashionable pieces at affordable prices that you can have the best of both worlds more than ever before.

The blogging addiction starts......

One of my earliest memories of childhood is of me being dragged to school non uniform day crying to my mum that I did not want to wear the clothes she had dressed me in and from what I recall it was a spotty skirt and stripy top, although saying this I am slightly embarrassed to say I did ask for months repeatedly to have a shell suit (this was the 80's/90's) I can be forgiven surely? I did end up buying one out of my birthday money- this was a happy day as I walked around proud in my pink and blue scratchy hot two piece. Fast forward 20 something years and I like to think my style has evolved somewhat since the shell suit days although the feeling never changes, that feeling of need and want and of buying that item that you have lusted after for months or the buzz of an impulse buy that you tell yourself you need and ignore the rational side of the brain or as I like to call it-my husband. My plans for this blog is to tell you about my new business plans. I have been buying and selling vintage and retro clothes and jewellery for six months but have plans of a website and maybe going in a slightly different direction and also to show outfits of the day, hauls and general chit chat about the fashion world.I really hope you enjoy and a follow would be great too. Oh and just a little shout-out to a blogger FashionTeller17 who's blog's have inspired me to finally get mine up and running.

Just quickly before I go, here's a bit of background info on moi..
I am married to a Scotsman and we have a handsome 3 year old who's birth name is Harry but quite often named Damien in our house....
Wine has to be Red, Tea has to be strong and the volume digits have to be on an even number.
