Bring Me Sunshine

Yellow my blogging friends, how wonderful to speak to you again! Well today was a beaut of a day, both the weather and the actually day. We had a joint birthday party today for my mother and sister and cousin. We decided to have it in the afternoon to enjoy the sun and have a BBQ! The weather was beautiful, in fact it was a little too hot for me…. I’m never happy…

I love having such a big family, because after the food, we all decided to play some volleyball! Flipping love it!

Soooo, after the delightful party, we headed home and the post had arrived.
And in it was a purchase I had been patiently (yea right!) waiting for about a week….
I finally bought me some Bioderma! Which is essentially, a makeup remover and cleanser all in one.

I thought you could only get it from France but I then found a website that sold it for a really decent price! I got it from Escentual.com… So good! I have only used it once but it is incredible. Before, in my wet wipe phase, I had to scrub to get any eyeliner off. But if you put a few drops on a cotton wool pad and rest it on your eye for 20 seconds it gets rid of it all! I love love love this…

As you already know, the weather was great, so I decided to be brave and put on some summery shoes, I even flaunted my toes…. Wow look at me!

I got these last year from Asda, I’m a bit sad as they are a bit worn, so I hope they bring out some similar news this year!

We also found a beautiful walk today so I thought I would show some pictures I took! I found a rather handsome looking tree, which I thought you would all appreciate!

And finally it’s the Shuffle Song of the Day!
‘The Devil’s Beat’ by Sandi Thom on her album The Pink and the Lilly!
An underrated artist and album… Enjoy! TUNE!

Well that’s all from me folks… Speak soon.

A Bit of Everything…

Aloha, my blogging friends, it’s lovely to see you again! So today the sun actually came out, I kid you not. As it was my sisters birthday, (Happy Birthday Allie!) we decided to go out for an all you can eat breakfast. And my oh my it was delicious and I was well and truly stuffed! We came back and I decided to try my new models own nail varnish.

I adore this colour, as I normally stick to dark and more grey tones its lovely to have a change! I only needed to put on one coat as the consistency is thick. The brush is quite long and thin, so be careful about the amount of varnish you put on each time as it tends to drip… Trust me it drips…
But apart from that its a wonderful varnish, in a lush colour and I’m very happy with it!
Here are the finished nails! You’ll have to excuse my short nails, they just don’t seem to grow!

Ooh, while I’m talking about nails, I wanted to show you a present I got from my parents yesterday!

20130530-202545.jpg
It’s from the ‘Scarlet and Crimson’ collection and the packaging is soo pretty, I just love it! It comes in a little compact and inside is a bronzer, blusher, 2 lip glosses, some blotting paper, and a teeny little mirror! I haven’t had a chance to use it properly yet but I’m already loving it! Thank you ma and pa, mucho appreciation! Oh, I forgot, here is what it looks like from the inside!

So, onto the shoe of the day! Today I sported a polka dot pair of vans, which are loved very much.

I apologise as I cannot link these as I bought them in the sale years ago for £10!! Love me a good bargain. So, back to my day, I bet your all dying to know what I did next!!
We, as we do everyday, took Tonka for a walk. We found a cool place with lots of sand dunes, the dog loved it! I have to confess that I’m not a lover of sand, I’m not sure why? Love me some sea though, I’m a total water baby at heart!

20130530-214212.jpg. For those wanting to know, I got my sunglasses from Primark, fairly recently for £2!
Now I know that two rounds don’t make a right (my face and sunglasses) but I adore them, I feel so vintage in them, and I can’t bare to be apart from them!
And finally, the time you’ve all been waiting for… it feels like I’ve run a blogging marathon here…. The shuffle song of the day!!
‘Me and my shadow’ by Robbie Williams on his epic album ‘Swing when your winning’. Flipping love this album, it’s an oldie but a goodie!
And I think that’s all from me! It’s been delightful. Speak soon.
