Looking for the perfect shade…


As we are now well and truly in the thick of summer (at last) I’ve been looking at colour palates in the hope of finding the perfect shade of lipstick for summer. I know, I know, I am starting the year with very high thoughts!

Letting you in on a little secret, after quite a bit of research and hunting on online I think I've found my favourite bright shades…Revlon’s Kiss Me Coral and the now discontinued line, Strawberry Suede (I know where to get this from if you’re interested so just shoot me an email!). So pretty and they can be toned down or mixed together like in this picture above. I never normally wear anything on my lips but for some reason, perhaps I'm picking up a current trend, I have been obsessed lately with getting the perfect shade.

If you have any great lippy tones you’d like to share, I’m all ears J

Happy New Year!

So here is 2012. I hope you all had a wonderful break. I know I feel very rejuvenated :-) Life is still tranquil for us this month so I'm embracing the peace and quiet before everything kicks off again and we're all manically busy.

Our little furry friend had her first Christmas which was very exciting (probably more for us as we gave her a stocking! She also got gifts sent from my other cat who lives with my parents - so sweet. Of course my Mum did this. Our family is very young at heart!) and she's started taking to our window sill although it will be a while yet before we get a view like the one I snapped on the ferry below!

Anyway, wishing you all the best for a very prosperous New Year! xx

Silly season

Just dropping in to say a quick hello! I hope you all had a lovely Christmas with family and friends. I am just enjoying the holiday break, eating lots and relaxing - so nice. Be back in 2012, enjoy NYE!

Silver sparkles

Only 4 days to go! At least we have a few sparkly decorations up - this year's tree is a twig one :-)
