Dotticure with Flower Accent

Happy Friday!

Another week flies by... Tonight I am planning a date night with Mr LiPP. I am going to cook us a nice three course meal (to be fair I will likely cheat and buy the dessert) and treat us to a bottle of something bubbly to get the weekend underway. We have some decorating that needs to be finished and as we are busy for the next four weekends its a bit of a now or never situation. It will be worth it in the end :-)

Product Review: Burt's Bees Hand Salve

Good evening lovelies

Tonight it is time for tea at my Mum's house. My little sis will be there too so we will spend the night eating, drinking and gossiping :-).

In tonights post I am going to share with you one of my most favourite, and absolutely essential, hand and nail care product - Burt Bee's Hand Salve. The polish I am wearing for these pictures is Boots No 7 Galaxy... which I adore by the way!

Subtle Stamping: Peach and Gold

Happy Hump Day

I hope you are all having a good week so far? Tonight Mr LiPP is off to the cinema so I am looking forward to a pampering session. I have a fantastic bright cherry pink colour to put on my hair, a face mask from Turkish barbar to (hopefully) work wonders on my skin and a peppermint exfoliating scrub for my hands and feet. Now I just need someone to pour my wine and feed me grapes :-)

Swatch: Models Own Tropical Sun

Good evening loves

Tonight I am showing you a pretty swatch from Models Own.

This colour is called Tropical Sun and is from the Summer Beetlejuice 2012 collection. This was in my box of goodies from Mr LiPP at Christmas so it has taken me a little while to get around to wearing it.

Purple Nails with Silver Butterflies

Happy Friday

I cannot tell you how quickly this week went by. I was busy at work and busy in the evenings and all of a sudden it is Friday evening. Last night I went to see Rizzle Kicks with my little sister - they were so good! Such a great atmosphere and they had so much energy considering they had hosted the late party at the Brits the previous night.

Onto my nails of the day...

Swatch: RCH Nail Polish in Purple

Happy Hump Day!

Had a lovely catch up with the girls last night. Tonight I am going to enjoy a quiet night and maybe give myself a full manicure and cuticle treatment. Mr LiPP is at the cinema so I am going to pour myself a glass of something cold, snuggle on the sofa with the dogs and more than likely eat chocolate :-)

Another pretty RCH swatch for you tonight...

Graffiti Nails: Orange, White and Gold

Happy Tuesday lovelies

Tonight I have friends over for a mini dinner party. I have decided upon a Mexican theme and am in the middle of preparing spicy pork tacos with a salsa dressing :-). You all know that I could not leave my lovely orange swatch from yesterday alone, so this is the final look...

Swatch: RCH Nail Polish in Orange

Good evening lovelies

We are back from Bulgaria :-). We had such a fantastic time so today being the first day back at work has been a shock to the system! Bulgaria was amazing. I embraced skiing and spent three days at ski school with my little sis and our friends. Who would have thought it? Also I sang karioke for the first time and danced on the bar during a pub crawl! So much fun was had by all. It was the perfect break for Mr LiPP and I.

Back to nails...

Brit Rocks Nail stickers

Hey lovelies

What better way to 'jazz' up a pretty but rather plain looking swatch than to break out the nail art stickers. These particular stickers have been in my drawer for a while - I think I purchased them for the Jubilee but forgot to use them!

Tonight I bring you... Brit Rocks!

Swatch: RCH Nail Polish in Light Blue

Hello lovelies

This is a nice and simple swatch post for those of you who are missing me while I am away on holiday :-).

Buried Treasure Flowers

Happy Friday!

As this post goes live we will be on our way to the airport! Tomorrow morning we fly to Bulgaria for a week of celebrations with friends and loved ones. I have scheduled just a few posts to keep my much treasured blog going whilst I am away :-). Here is how I 'dressed up' the beautiful swatch of Buried Treasure.

Swatch: Buried Treasure by Orly

Good evening lovelies

Just a simple little swatch post from me as I am getting for a meal at Loch Fyne with my little sis. We ate at Loch Fyne several times over Christmas and it was beautiful each time so I really looking forward to trying their set menu tonight.

This is a swatch I have been dying to get around to as this polish was on my lemming list for what seemed like forever. I could not believe my luck when I found it in the sale for £2 :-).

Product Review: Burt Bee's Almond and Milk Hand Cream

Good evening lovelies

Tonight I thought I would try a slightly different type of post and actually review one of the new additions to my hand and nail care routine for you. I hope you enjoy :-).

As a present from my lovely Secret Santa I got a Burt Bee's gift set called Tips and Toes (a picture of the full contents can be found below the jump). I am already a huge Burt Bee's fan so was really excited to try out some of the new to me products included in the gift set.

Tonight I am going to share with you my review of the Almond and Milk Hand Cream.

Filigree Nails with Bling Accent

Happy Monday lovelies

How are you all doing? I am pleased to be on the road to recovery, I just need to shift this pesky cough and I will be fully fit just in time for our holiday! Yes thats right, Mr and Mrs LiPP as well as 10 friends will be off to Bansko Bulgaria on Saturday and we cannot wait! Dont get me wrong, personally I'm not one for hours spent in the cold attempting to balance on skis but I am most certainly one for group holidays with friends and loved ones. Days spent chilled out in the hot tub or shopping and enjoying a glass or two of bubbly. Evenings spent with all of us eating together, leisurely walks to the pub and plenty of drinking games!

Here are my nails of the day...

Swatch: RCH Nail Polish in Salmon Pink

Happy Sunday loves

I hope you all had fantastic weekends? I am recovering from a really rotten cold which actually meant I had to cancel my plans for Friday night and also limited what I felt able to do on Saturday and Sunday. All that said, I still got out in the crisp winter air for dog walking and I still spent a good few hours curled up on the sofa at my sisters watching Vampire Diaries.

Tonight I am going to show you this really pretty swatch from RCH

Beautifully Bright with Glitter Accent

Hey lovelies

Pinch and a punch its the first of the month!

These beautiful nails are actually from a few weeks ago but they are too pretty for me to not squeeze them into my blog line up. I kept this look quite simple as I was wearing a very patterned dress and I have to admit they did end up complimenting my outfit very nicely :-)
