My first Essie polish!!

I finally achieved my goal of owning an Essie nail polish! I was strolling (I love to stroll) through Shaws yesterday and out of the corner of my eye I spied the Essie stand. I turned a very abruptly 90 degrees towards the stand. So abruptly that even another shopper turned to see what had got me so excited. She too spent ages and ages picking out polishes. Sooo many colours and they are all arranged by shade. Heaven!

Yes! It really is Essie!

Got Something From My Wishlist!!

I finally went and did it. I got me some Lady Gaga Fame after months and months of wishing and hoping and and thinking and praying. I was roaming around Boots with no intention of buying anything, as one does (LIES!) ahem! I strolled over to the perfume section wondering if they had any beauts on sale.

I had been in Sam McCauley's a few months prior and noticed that the 100ml of Fame had been on sale. I had to resist temptation that day due to the fact I went completely bananas in Boots and Debenhams already that day, I had to rein in it somehow! 

And so to my delight I spotted Lady Gaga hiding down in the corner of display. I thought I would check out to see if my luck was in and Fame 100ml was on sale again. Indeed it was! Reduced from €74.95 to the affordable €49.96, a saving of €24.99. I snapped up the last bottle and gave myself a boost that only shopping knows how to give. I had to leave before I ended up at any of the make up counters; Benefit, Clinique, Lancome, so dangerous!

My perfume collection is slowly returning to a collection now. I finished so many of them around the one time, it's strange not having so many to choose from. I have 3 fantastic scents at the moment. I have already reviewed Marc Jacobs DOT if you fancy checking it out. I should get to review another during the week. It was a present from my brother, a wonderful surprise from him, all I wanted was Toblerone haha

Have you snapped up anything from your wishlist lately? Or have you spotted any bargains or sale items?

Beautiful Things #2

Do I speak for everyone when I say we all crave this dress? I love teal, it's the colour I chose to wear to my brother's wedding. In the back of my mind I am wondering was I inspired by the Duchess and her choice of dress here.

Kate Middleton Green, Teal Dress Jenny Packham

I was won over straight away when I first laid my eyes on this beauty. First it was the colour and the shape that I loved, flattering. Until I spotted the details, oh the details! The chiffon, the lace, the capped sleeves. It also shimmered. And most importantly, the back of the dress. Magnificent! The buttons down the back also. Oh la la Catherine!

Back of Kate Middleton Green, Teal Dress by Jenny Packham

I dream about this dress. It's a wonderful creation. Jenny Packham is a genius. I adore and yearn for many of her designs. In my head I'm going to win the lotto and with that I shall be the proud owner of a Jenny Packham design ;) It might always be a dream but a girl's gotta have her dreams! Xx

Midweek Blues Lightened

It's been nearly 2 weeks since Ant & Dec graced us with the reappearance of PJ & Duncan on Saturday Night Takeaway. I can honestly say every time I watch this I get a huge grin on my face. And I was absolutely delighted to hear it went to number 1 on iTunes in the UK. Tune! I love 90s music.

They haven't changed a bit

Anyway here they are to cheer us up on this Wednesday, even though it's only a 4 day week, Bank Holiday's are tiring! Here it is in all it's glory!! Enjoy!

Hope this has cheered up or given you a midweek boost. And if it you still need a  little giggle, just check this out...

Only in the 90s
