A Week In Instagram #7

A week of feeling creative and snug with a hint of the vintage lover bug.
A collage I made of my nature inspired instagram photo's. Seem's a shame to do nothing with them when I am so super talented ;-)

A couple of lovely illustrated vintage feel picture's
Capturing a great moment of Elle being crazy
Childhood falshback's. If you can name the film that this opening scene is from then you and I should be friends!
An afternoon of blogs, cuppa soup and pitta bread
'Til next week Instagrammers :-)

Balmi Lipbalm

Balmi are fairly new on the scene. Dome shaped balm housed in a spherical little ball.
I recently received a blackcurrant one in the Latest In Beauty Editor's Picks box (link here)
Since stealing all the black Rowntree's Fruit Pastilles as a young'un I have craved blackcurrant things, so I welcome this little gem into my life. I also wear a lot of black. 'Tis a match made in predictable heaven.

Tag: How Much Is Your Face Worth?

Ever the weird little blog stalking hermit of Louise AKA Sprinkle Of Glitter I found myself a little tag post on her glitter laden blog, and now here is my version of it!
How Much Is Your Face Worth?
No, no one is going to take my face and sell it (weird thought...)
I'm not a model where "my face is my money"
And no, I'm not talking about how much cosmetic surgery I've had. (none!)
You take your everyday makeup, add up the painful amount that it all cost and there you have it. How much your face is worth!

A Week In Instagram #6

Autumn has brought on a slow week Instagram wise. No more pretty flowers in bloom and too much rain to spend time outside without looking like a rat. A drenched one. But here are some non drenched rat pictures that I did take this week...

Instagram #5

My little blog has been a little neglected this week due my daughters 3rd birthday on September 11th.
As much as I love writing, it just isn't as fun as hand feeding giraffes!
A picture of Elle in Tenerife and the rest were captured in the butterfly house at Longleat Safari Park.

Autumn NOTD

The start of Autumn starts with me eagerly whipping out all my favourite deep berry and jewel coloured nail polishes that I ban to the back of the drawer during summer.

Impress Press On Manicure Review

Given a rare and exciting week off to have pretty nails away from the glitter police of my workplace, I gave the new Impress press on manicure nails a go after hearing so much about them recently.
I am so rough with my nails and all polishes, be it high end or budget, chip within 24 hours. So these nails claiming to last up to a week with the bonus of no drying time apeal to my beady eye greatly.

OPI Mermaid's tears

A little OPI binge is good for the heart. That's what one tell's one's self when you have accidently aquired four in a week.
Mermaid's Tears being one of the four little beauties winking at me from the shop display. Even if I do already have 3 at home that look remarkably similar...
A beautiful dusty jade green cream. Creams are a bit of a nightmare to apply for me, with pulling and "bald spots" but this applied beautifully with two coats. I like to apply a white coat underneath to make the colour pop (Illamasqua Scorch) although I feel I could have gone without for this shade.
A real dirty jade that gives a flash of colour yet still looking sophisticated and chic.
Taken outside in direct sunlight.

From the previous OPI collection- Pirates Of The Caribbean.

Illamasqua Powder Foundation

I got a few items in the ever popular Illamasqua sale. And as I am increasingly overly excited and obsessive about skin products, I got a powder foundation. Leaving me feeling somewhat disloyal to my 6 year long relationship with my Barbara Daly powder foundation. I'm sorry Barb, I'll be back!
