Swatch: Barry M: 50 Years of Superdrug

Happy Hump day

I treated myself to three days off work this week as an extended birthday break. I am loving the time away from my usual routine and have taken full advantage of not getting up at 6am (the pups still get me up at 7.15am at the latest!). I have instead enjoyed the delights of multiple cups of tea in bed and early morning TV. After refreshments the pups and I have taken some beautiful walks in and around Norfolk, really taking in the beautiful scenery and the wonderful peace and quiet.

Tristam with a Stripey Accent

Good evening lovelies

I hope you are all well? Today is my birthday and I have had an amazing day. My little sister spoiled me rotten from morning til night. So many presents to open this morning and then a full day of eating, shopping, drinking and more eating! These are not the nails I wore for today as I'm a little behind with blogging but the colours are the same so close enough :-)

Easter Bunny Nails

Happy Easter Monday loves

I have had another lovely day and am glad I have been able to really make the most of this four day weekend. Today started with breakfast with the girls. As the weather is much better than forecast we managed to get a lovely table outside overlooking the grounds of a local leisure club, each of us ordered the full works and happily gossiped a few hours away :-). After that I went on a lovely dog walk with my sister and her fox reds and then spent the later part of the afternoon cuddled up on the sofa with two very sleepy staffys.

Happy Easter: Easter Nails

Happy Easter!

Did you have chocolate for breakfast? :-)

I have a busy day today as I have my sisters two dogs over to play with my two dogs. It is very distracting having four beautiful dogs to run around and play outside with so my list of jobs to be done around the house will just have to wait!

Here are my Easter nails...

Happy Saturday

I have whole day of fun with my little sis and our four dogs and tonight I am very excited to be heading to a friends house for Greek food! Faye cooks lovely food and bakes fantastic desserts so we will certainly eat well tonight :-).

Time for a super quick Swatch of the Day...

Spots and a Bow: Galahad and Bright Purple

Happy Good Friday loves

Have you all had a wonderful day? Mine was a little different to the way I had it planned out... In a nutshell I went for a dog walk this morning with my friend Debbie and then when we tried to get back into the house once we were done I realised I had lost my keys! Neither of us had our phones with us so after much searching and then banging on neighbours doors to borrow a phone my little sister arrived like a knight in shining armour and somehow found my keys in the middle of the field that we had already searched three times!

Phew! Time for my nails of the day...

Swatch: OPI: Wonderous Star

Happy Monday loves

Tonight I have a slightly unusual polish to show you. I think this is going to be like marmite for people... you will either love it or hate it. I picked this up in a Sally's sale a while back, £4 instead of £11, but something about it stopped me from picking it up out of my untrieds stash. Until now...

Swatch: Barry M Aquarium: Caspian and Treasure Chest

Good evening lovelies

Hope you all had fantastic weekends? Over too quickly as always but I have had a really good couple of days. Saturday I did the usual house stuff and then I went to my friend Jamie's to do my first childrens nail party! It was her daughter Casey's 9th birthday so I spent the afternoon painting seven lots of teeny tiny nails with lots of bright colours, plenty of glitter and even some funky french tips. It went really well and I had a lovely afternoon.

Today was Sister Sunday :-), so me and the little sis went into the city, shopped a little, ate a lot and then headed home for a dog walk and a Vampire Diaries DVD session. Bliss!

Barry M Silks: Pearl

Happy Friday!

Thank goodness we made it to the weekend! It's been a long tough week but I am pleased to think about all the lovely plans I have for this weekend. Just time to show you a few quick pictures of Pearl from the Barry M Silks collection.

I know you have seen this from me as an accent nail already but I thought this colour deserved a post all of its own :-)

Vivid Purple and Fantasy Fire

Tonight is going to be a good night.. Mexican food and great company. This night has been in the diary for ages for I am glad it has finally arrived. I am off to one of my favourite restaurants with two of my favourite people... my little sis Laus and our boss turned mate; Paul. The three of us are collectively called T43, which means that when we get together we have Tea For Three people :-).

Onto my nails of the day...

Hope you are doing well? It is crazy busy both in and out of work for me at the moment so my nail painting has been a little sporadic but when I find time for a quick mani I am loving the Barry M Silks.
