All that glitters is GOLD!

Yet again it's been a while since I posted but I really wanted to tell you about todays bargain find!

Boyes is a shop I really like to visit every now and then, not only do you find real bargains, but you often find things you would never expect. Say hello to my new Chubby glitter stick!

Colour:  Go for gold

I love anything which sparkles so I was attracted to this immediately! Not only is it glittery it smells delicious too! An for 99p it really is impossible to go wrong.

Of course, when I got home I did a little detective work and discovered this was a true bargain indeed. I found some on eBay with a starting price of £3.99 upwards and on other websites they are selling for anything up to £10. These chubby sticks are compact enough to pop in your bag and are great for festivals, fancy dress, parties or those times when you just need a bit of glitter in your life.

The shimmer effect is gorgeous, and you can layer it depending on the intensity of glitter you require and you can you this pretty much anywhere.

My local Boyes only had the gold in stock but I shall be keeping my eye out for the other colours available:

Stage Silver
Hottest Pink
Turquoise Blue

Tropical days

I know I promised a few months ago that I would begin posting more regularly again, time really does just seem to be whizzing by and before I know it 4 months have passed - scary.

Anyway, having booked our next getaway it's got me onto thinking about holiday 'essentials'. Every time I try to be savvy and pack light and every time I fail! I never wear everything I take but somehow I feel better knowing I have many options!

For air travel I always like to make sure I am comfortable, and take a jacket (for plane air-con and coming back to the UK afterwards!)
Yesterday, I found the perfect travelling trousers in Matalan

These gorgeous tropical hibiscus print tapered trousers are just £16.00 and are made of the most fabulously soft material.

Because of the gorgeous colouring in these, you can mix and match them with pretty much anything!

Here's what I'll be wearing with mine:
Black Cap Sleeve Bardot Neck Bandeau from New Look.

MOTO white denim jacket from Topshop.
Tropical flower necklace also from Topshop

Crossover combined heel sandal, now in the sale, from Zara

Now I just can't wait to jet off!! Have you found any fab holiday buys recently?

Spring Tee's

I hope you are all well and had an amazing Easter which included eating your own body weight in chocolate eggs??

I had a wonderful time, the weekend just passed so fast. I popped out on Tuesday lunchtime to grab a sandwich and ended up popping into Matalan (well, it is right next door to Morrisons!) and ended up buying these two gorgeous T-shirts.

I don't know about you but I think they are perfect for spring and go with just about anything.

So far I've worn them with Jeans and skirts, now just waiting for the weather to try them with my denim cut offs and sandals!

There are lots of other prints too, and at just £6 each you can afford to stock up!!

Which are your favourites?????

I just had to tell you about my experience with Barry M Gelly hi-shine nail paint.

I bought this pink little beauty in boots a few weeks ago as there was an offer on. That night I pained on two coats and a week later it was still almost perfect. Its the longest lasting polish Ive had for a LONG time!
I decided I need to buy some other shades so when I saw a two for £6 offer in Superdrug I thought why not! There are some amazing vibrant colours and some lovely pastel and neutral shades too, you can see the full range here.
I decided to go for these two lovely spring-like colours which I think will go with pretty much everything. I predict an evening of nail art ahead!

The creamy shade is 'Lychee' and the orange shade 'Papaya'

If you haven't tried this polish yet then you really need to as it's super-fab. I think the 2 for £6 offer ended today in Superdrug but I believe it's being replace by a 3 for 2 offer! It's also buy one get one half price at Boots just now too!
