Things I am loving this week

{this is not a sponsored blog, It is just my fave products I want to share with you all}

This week, I am in love with

{510 Euphoria, 832 Bonzai, 260 Funtime Fuschia, 053 Apricot Punch, 740 Clear}

There is something fantastic about having beautiful nails.
I am in love with

Rimmel London Nail Polish

I mean, they must have been making a nail polish just for me when they came up with the

60 Seconds Nail Polish

It is perfect for the woman who does not have time to go & get her nails done at a salon. It has an extra wide brush so it takes less time to paint & dries in 60 seconds.
It also means that I can change the colours of my nails every day!

It is also perfect for painting little girls nails as it dries so fast that they can't smudge it or get it on the furniture! I mean, what little girl {& big girls!} doesn't love to have their nails painted!
My Favourite nail polish in the
I Red heart Lasting Finish
Not only does is it the most awesome colour but when it dries, it has a fabulous fruity scent!!
It smells delicious!

One truly amazing thing about

Rimmel London

is that I can buy it from my local chemist, supermarket or even when I am clothes shopping at one of the major retail store (you know them!).
Did I mention that it is VERY reasonable priced? Well, it is!

What is your fave colour nail polish?

Make time to stop and smell the flowers (not just the roses!)

Make sure this week to stop & smell the flowers. I have been lucky enough to have all these flowers in & around my home over the last month or so. Looking at & smelling them is a great way to give you a moment of peace.


If your garden is a little too green, why not plant some flowering plants in a pot by your front door?

Take one dress, styling my market day find

Take one dress

Take one dress by joslene featuring a stacked heel

I brought a dress on the weekend nearly eactly the same as the dresses I have featured here. It is a long, dark grey t-shirt dress. I picked it up for the bargain price of $25. I have been playing around on Polyvore & I think I have found the perfect colour to go with the dress....
fire engine red!

I also love the look of the dress with a funky denim jacket.

What do you think?

Nivea 5 day trial, fingers crossed that it works!

{this is not a sponsored post & all thoughts are my own}

Ok, so I am 32. It is getting easier to say but a little harder to look in the mirror & see the wrinkles getting deeper & longer.

{funny face to stretch out the wrinkles!}

I have been using a particular brand of face products for many years but the are just not doing the job that I would like them to. I had been thinking about changing my brand of face creams for a while but I didn’t want to have to buy a full sized product if it wasn’t going to be the right one.

Hello Nivea!
As if on cue, in my goodie bag from the marie claire James Street Up Late, there was a 5 day trial pack of Nivea face products.


So that is why I took the funny photo this morning. I want to take a daily pic to see if this is right for me. I do have to say that I keep touching my face today because it feels so soft & smooth.
I am crossing my fingers {& toes} that it does the job it says as I know that Nivea is a fantastic priced skin care range.
