Sunday, 20 February 2011


Last night we were going out to a friends 40th birthday do at a local pub, although in the end my hubby didn't come as he had a cold, which has miraculously disappeared enough for him to go to the Rugby today LOL!

I went for comfort, but also wanted to look nice as well :)
Had a really good time catching up with friends!

Dress: Evie @ Peacocks.
Waistcoat: Miss Selfridge.
Leggings: Primark.
Boots: Barrett's.
Scarf: Belt from Next.
Bag: Gifted - Mum.

Painted my nails a new colour that my Mum got me from Avon yesterday, its called Cement Grey, It comes out as a matte finish - which i wasn't really all that keen on ...

.... Looks a bit like when you used to tippex your nails at school and then colour them in with felt tip pens (No?? .. Just me?? ;P)

So I added a clear top coat .. and liked it soooo much more!

Nail Colours:
Grey Cement: Avon Matte.
Clear: No7 Ultimate Nails Collection.

Also wanted to show you the bag my Mum bought for me for Xmas, it's the one I mentioned a little while back that has the little Russian Dolls lining inside ...
Fab huh?
It matches one of my Doll necklaces and the umbrella she also got me :D I love my Mummy :D
Hope you are having a fab weekend everyone!
Love xXx
