Well 2012 is almost over and I thought it would be nice to reflect on my year and all the good things about it.

Collection 2000 Sweet Tart

My mum picked this up for me a few months ago for my birthday and as soon as I seen the colour I instantly loved it. I am a bit of a sucker for pink lipsticks.


NOTD Leighton Denny Rebel


Hubby was paying extra special attention this year and got me 4 Leighton Denny nail polishes and the crystal nail file as part of my Christmas.  He actually picked out the colours for me and did very well including this amazing purple called Rebel.

NOTD Barry M Xmas Special


I recently picked up 2 Barry M nail polishes (you can view the previous posts here - pink silver and here- plum) and as I spent over £6 Boots were giving a free limited edition polish away so I picked up this intense sparkly pink.

Christmas Time Mistletoe and Wine

Sorry I am a little late but thought it would be nice to share my Christmas with you all.  I will try and not to bombard you with too many pics :)

Last weekend my friends came over and we had a Christmas night in, was such a fun night! We made cocktails, had pizza and had our onsies on.  The boys played PlayStation with some beers will we danced the night away, was a great night.

NOTD Candy Cane Nails

Since this year I don't have a cheesy Christmas jumper thought I would do some cheesy nails, so candy cane nails were my inspiration.

Cake Pops

On Monday 7th December I attended a lovely blogger Christmas party organised by Roisin, Gillian and Claire at the Monkey Bar in Glasgow.  This was my first blogger meet up and it was great fun! Can't wait for the next one.

Part of the night was a secret santa and I picked out a lovely present from Juliet which was a cake pop machine! I loveeeee cooking and cakes so this is my ideal pressie.

NOTD Barry M Plum

Not really one to wear really dark colours I was surprised that this caught my eye, probably as its purple and I like the look of the finish on it.

NOTD Barry M Pink Silver Glitter

Firstly I would like to apologies for my missing blog love lately! Christmas craziness has taken over and I feel like there isn't enough time in the world to get everything done :(

So i'm back and have at least 3 new posts this week!

I have only ever purchased Barry M glitter pots and they are fantastic and to be honest I don't know why I have never purchased more Barry M as every time i'm in Boots I always have a sneaky peak at the stand.

So last week I took the plunge and decided to pick up some of their lovely polishes, I picked up 2, this Pink Silver Glitter and a jelly polish called plum and as I spent over £6 I received a free Christmas treat! I will be doing a post on it later on in the week.

For £2.99 this was excellent value and I will be picking up more Barry M polish in the near future!

NOTD Nails Inc St James

Nails Inc is a brand I have been lusting after for a while, while channel surfing they always seem to pull me on in QVC and when I heard Glamour were offering a freebie with the mag I instantly snapped this up!

Boux Avenue - Silverburn Launch


On Thursday last week I attended a lovely store opening at Boux Avenue with Lori. 

Boux Avenue Ltd. is a chain of lingerie stores based in the United Kingdom. The chain is owned by entrepreneur Theo Paphitis. This is the second store to open in Glasgow and the Buchanan Galleries branch was the first in the UK!
 
They stock a lovely selection of lingerie including DD+ starting from 30 back! I really struggle to get a bigger cup in a small back so for me I was spoilt for choice, so many different styles and designs.

Fave Posts #2

These are the posts in the last 7 days that I have been loving!



Nail posts always instantly catch my eye and this week I noticed a post by Danielle on Models Own Northern Lights, a polish that I don't own but now need to get a hold off. Worth checking out if you are after a sparkly party look for your nails!  You can view the post here.



A girl after my own heart Corrie's posts are always right up my street and this one is no different.  Posting her 3 autumn lip colours (1 of which I currently own you can view my previous post here). I think these 3 shades are perfect and worth checking out if you want to experiment with a darker lip but are unsure of what to go for, you can view Corries post here.



A nail obsessive like myself I really enjoyed this post by flutter and sparkle.  This xmas nails gift list is all things that I would pick for myself so if anyone is looking for some great xmas pressies check out the post here.



After recently purchasing the Revlon lip butters and falling in love, the kissable stains are next on my list and after reading Emilys post I will be on the look out to pick these up! You can view the post here.



Thanks for reading!
