Nails of the day - neon leopard print

After having a touch of the midweek blues today (I've got a cheek after a 3 day weekend!), I decided to cheer myself up with some fun nails. I applied Nails Inc in Floral Street as a base, two coats gives a gorgeous, bright white shade, it always reminds me of the old days when we used to paint our nails with tipp-ex! Then I did the leopard print design down one side of each nail using Nails Inc in Chelsea Park, a bright neon coral shade, and the Models Own Wah Nails nail art pen in black. And I finished off with a quick coat of Seche Vite.

I was really pleased with the outcome. What do you think...?

Cinderella's Loubis

I love a good fairytale, and what happy ending would be better than being given a gorgeous pair of limited edition Cinderella shoes?

Christian Louboutin has redesigned the iconic glass slipper in honour of the Blue Ray release of Cinderella later this year. And here's what the man himself has to say about the gorgeous lace and crystal embellished beauties.

"Cinderella is not only an iconic character when it comes to beauty, grace and fairytale love, but also shoes. Her character and her story dictated the design to me, it was all there in the pages and the words of this tale. The slipper is the magic wand of transformation, which conjures confidence, beauty and love The dream is a major factor in my language of design. There are no limits in the world of fantasy and there is always a happily ever after."

The initial sketch

The finished product

The shoes are limited to just 20 pairs worldwide, and they'll be given away to fans in a give away. I'll race you to the front of that competition queue girls!!

Project Perfect

When the gorgeous Sarah from Fashion is my H2O told me about her new Project Perfect mission I couldn't wait to get involved. Her aim is to make all of us feel gorgeous no matter what size we are. Each week she has 6 bloggers all in different sizes from 6 to 16, and each person styles that week's selected item of clothing in their own way that makes them feel body confident and happy in their own skin. It's such a fab project and shows that we really don't all need to fit in to a particular shape or size in order to be beautiful.

This week's challenge was to style a blazer. And here's what I wore!

Blazer - River Island

Shorts - vintage

Top - Primark

Shoes - Topshop

Necklace - Fossil

Each of the other bloggers look amazing in their blazers, what a gorgeous bunch! Have a look at Sarah's fab blog here.

Carry on camping

Other than the odd Duke of Edinburgh expedition during my school days, the only camping I've ever done has been at T in the Park. (The best festival in Scotland by miles!) This year is the second year in about a decade that we've not been going to TITP and I've got to say that I'm not really too disappointed by that fact. As you've all experienced, it has rained here constantly for weeks and the whole area is bound to be a soggy, filthy mud bath....not my idea of fun. However seeing all these camping lovelies in the Cath Kidston summer sale has gone some way to changing my mind. Who cares about a bit of rain when you get to wrap yourself up in your floral sleeping bag and spend the night in a cowboy teepee??? Plus they're so cheap in the sale, maybe I should stock up now in preparation for next year...or try out some glamping before then...

Cowboy Teepee Tent was £75 now £50

Stripe Camping Stool was £12 now £8

Petal Dome Tent was £85 now £60

Bath Flowers Torch was £6 now £4

Petal Sleeping Bag was £25 now £18


Are you going to any festivals this year? Go on make me jealous...


Nails of the day - Juicy Blue

I decided to go for a combo of my favourite Models Own shades and created a gorgeous subtle sparkly finish. I layered Beth's Blue under the Classic Juicy Jules and this was the outcome.
