Hello my loves!

This morning I finally received my shipment from Zara. I have been DREAMING about these shoes, well the Saint Laurent version… but what a dupe! What a bargain!

These Zara glitter booties are such a staple in my closet already… and it’s only day one!

PicMonkey CollageHow perfect are they! Wear with Jeans, leggings, skirts, dresses ANYTHING!!

Here are some pics of my outfit of the day!

They can be ordered here: http://www.zara.com/ca/en/sale/woman/shoes/glitter-booties-c541568p2381517.html

TIPS:

– Comfort level 8

– The glitter stays on

– No grip on sole so can be slippy

– They had sold out of most sizes, I am a small 7 but ordered a 6 1/2, they fit perfectly

Happy shopping

I was lucky enough to receive the Ciaté London Mini Manor 2014 calendar as a Christmas present… it’s a NAIL POLISH ADVENT CALENDAR!!!

What’s included? 24 GOSH DARN AMAZING NAIL POLISHES!

Processed with VSCOcam with m3 preset

I love the Ciaté calendars as it’s a way to try different nail polishes without forking out an absolute fortune.

However just a note they do usually retail in Canada for about $75… which cheaper than buying all the colours. But is still an expense … so here’s a hint … if you wait until after Christmas, this set is dramatically reduced, you can get them as cheap as $25!!!

Anyway I have decided that every Friday I am going to do a swatch… I am going to paint my nails my fav colour of the week.

This week its:

ESPADRILLES, it’s a stunning ruby red. Perfect for the snowy time… it makes me feel all wintery and Dorothy like. We’re not in Kansas anymore!

Pros:

  • Amazing color
  • Easy to apply
  • Long lasting

Cons

  • Hard to remove

I’M BACK!

Well it’s the first Monday of 2015, which means for most of you it’s back to the daily work grind. For me being self employed, this means attempting to get my chocolate and turkey filled butt to the gym!

I admit I am NOT a gym rat… in fact I hate it! I am envious of people that love the gym.

Yoga = hate it gives me a headache

Running = apparently I have a weird run

Swimming = I might drown

Anyway 2015 is my year to turn myself into a definite GYM RAT.

Day one:

Well my progress so far is my outfit… got that sorted!

So for most of you you know that Father’s Day is this Sunday June 15th, for others this is a massive reminder!

But if you are like me, then you haven’t got your gift yet. I thought I would help out… here is a last minute DIY gift ideas for you!

1. Photo Album

Image

You can now get images printed really quickly… in fact on the Walmart website you can upload your images on line and pick them up in an hour… then all you need is an album and a little bit of time.

2. BBQ

Image

Research some BBQ sauce recipes and make some up, put in a cute mason jar and their ready for your dad to get his grill on.

3. Beer Cake

Image

If your of legal age, then you can grab this one for your Dad. Instead of giving him a 12 pack make it a decorative 12 pack.

4. Gift Box

Image

Make your Dad a gift box of all his fav things!… e.g cheese box, blu ray box, bbq box, aftershave box.

5. Key hook

Image

I am sure you have wine corks lying around, turn those corks into something decorative for Dad… simply glue the corks together then screw in some hooks… finished!

 

I do hope these 5 last minute DIY Father’s Day gifts have at least helped inspire you. A personal touch is really the best gift.

Happy Father’s Day!

Oh Lay Oh Lay Oh Lay

The day has finally come… after 4 very very very long years, this glorious day has come upon us. Where the world stops what they are doing and are glued to the TV, where friendships and loyalty are tested, where the booze runs freely… of course it is WORLD CUP 2014.

As I am too busy watching the glorious game of FOOTBALL (not soccer), I am leaving you with some glorious images (above), of model Lys Inger shot by Igor Oussenko for Stolnick June 2014.

So grab a beer… turn on the TV… and get chanting!

LETS GO ENGLAND!!!!
