So it’s Saturday… it’s time for a night out… PARTY, and this week’s Ciaté polish ‘Knee Highs’ is a perfect combination for any party outfit.
Knee Highs is a glossy deep blue…my fav kind of colour.
This week I have been rocking and LOVING the Ciaté London Mini Manor colour ‘Talent Scout’.
Not only do I love the name…It is this amazing purple that really seems to change its intensity in different lights… it can be really bright or deep purple… weird!
Anyway I love it!
However I have found that with the flat colours (none sparkle) they are very streaky, and I will list the colours I didn’t like in a future blog post… rant over… enjoy the pics.
After receiving this fabulous pair of Doc Martens, it seems that my shoe obsession has gone a little stir crazy!
Doc Martens are a British heritage… a MUST HAVE item… So quite obviously they are GLUED to my feet this winter.
With my lust for my Doc Martens so ever strong I put together a lookbook with 3 (and a 1/2) ways to wear your Doc Martens in the winter… enjoy.
Sweater: H&M White T: Zara Velvet Leggings: H&M
Dress: River Island Jacket: Vintage Tights: Who knows!
Jacket: Vintage Dress: Topshop Tights: Still no clue!
Dress: Topshop Tights: Aaaaaa
So it’s week two of my Ciaté London Mini Manor 2014 blog post.
This week I decided to use two colors… you know being all trendy at that!
These nails make me feel like a sparkly Barbie, using ‘Mineral Love’ and ‘Strawberry Milkshake’…. YUM!
Enjoy the pics… BTW sorry about the bad paint’man’ ship.
Hello my loves!
This morning I finally received my shipment from Zara. I have been DREAMING about these shoes, well the Saint Laurent version… but what a dupe! What a bargain!
These Zara glitter booties are such a staple in my closet already… and it’s only day one!
Here are some pics of my outfit of the day!
They can be ordered here: http://www.zara.com/ca/en/sale/woman/shoes/glitter-booties-c541568p2381517.html
– Comfort level 8
– The glitter stays on
– No grip on sole so can be slippy
– They had sold out of most sizes, I am a small 7 but ordered a 6 1/2, they fit perfectly

I was lucky enough to receive the Ciaté London Mini Manor 2014 calendar as a Christmas present… it’s a NAIL POLISH ADVENT CALENDAR!!!
What’s included? 24 GOSH DARN AMAZING NAIL POLISHES!
I love the Ciaté calendars as it’s a way to try different nail polishes without forking out an absolute fortune.
However just a note they do usually retail in Canada for about $75… which cheaper than buying all the colours. But is still an expense … so here’s a hint … if you wait until after Christmas, this set is dramatically reduced, you can get them as cheap as $25!!!
Anyway I have decided that every Friday I am going to do a swatch… I am going to paint my nails my fav colour of the week.
This week its:
ESPADRILLES, it’s a stunning ruby red. Perfect for the snowy time… it makes me feel all wintery and Dorothy like. We’re not in Kansas anymore!
Well it’s the first Monday of 2015, which means for most of you it’s back to the daily work grind. For me being self employed, this means attempting to get my chocolate and turkey filled butt to the gym!
I admit I am NOT a gym rat… in fact I hate it! I am envious of people that love the gym.
Yoga = hate it gives me a headache
Running = apparently I have a weird run
Swimming = I might drown
Anyway 2015 is my year to turn myself into a definite GYM RAT.
Well my progress so far is my outfit… got that sorted!

Hope you all had a fantastic weekend! Here is a helpful shopping tip this Tuesday evening… ASOS the King style website of the world, is having a summer sale!

It’s that time of the year again… SUMMERLICIOUS!

I’m back!! After a lovely long weekend, some time to catch up with family and friends, and enjoy Canada Day… I am back and ready to get BLOGGING!
After a night of fireworks to celebrate Canada Day… my mind has wandered to the fact that America will be lighting up their skies with fireworks this Friday for Fourth of July. So I have decided to do a blog post on ways my American friends can incorporate their flag into their lives this Friday.
Clothing… probably the most obvious way to incorporate your flag. Their are many different clothing items promoting the American flag available for sale on the high street. However you don’t have to deck yourself from head to toe, you could just use one item… or create an outfit of red, white and blue…. e.g red top, blue shorts, white shoes.
Many of you will be getting your kit off this Friday… I am sure!… whether it is at the beach, back garden, pool whatever… everyone seems to get a little naked on July 4th. So show your patriotic by plastering your flag on your private parts! There are lots of cute bikini’s available at places like American Apparel, Target, Nastygal.
Having people over? Or just hungry? Food is the way… not only is it delicious but you can have some fun by adding the American flag into your meals.
Why not bring some of that pride indoors, adding decorative pieces to your interior is not only being patriotic but also making your space look great. There are so many DIY ideas online to add some flag into your house.
Now all that’s left to decorate is your car. You don’t have to paint the whole thing in an American flag… unless you want to, and if in that case don’t hold me responsible. You can add a simple car flag… these are super cheap and easy to get a hold of… especially with the world cup going on.
I hope you all have a fantastic July 4th… and an amazing long weekend! Be safe and have FUN.
