I want to be rainbow high…

On Saturday I had the pleasure of going wedding dress shopping with my beautiful sister. Bil & Mum were also in toe to admire & offer opinions. 

Wedding dress shopping is rather nice. The troublesome part is my sister looks stunning in just about every dress. Plus as soon as a veil appears I start bubbling. Luckily all spectators were in sync with regards to which dresses were contenders. The bride to be decided there is still more shopping to be done.

So, what did I wear to whitest enviroment in the world? All the colours, of course. I’ve had this rainbow delight for a couple of weeks & have been dying to get it on. It’s a super comfy maxi with the cutest crochet top. 

Dress – Simply Be

The colours & the crochet make it feel very summery. Alas, Autumn appears to be upon us in Glasgow, but this will definitely be going in my Australia suitcase, which is in need of cool day dresses.

After shopping we had some lunch in a cosy/cool pub where Bil & I couldn’t resist messing around with the mirrors. 

Now you’re in New York…

A large package arrived by special delivery today. As I wasn’t expecting anything I signed quickly; eager to rip it open. One tear of the packaging revealed a thing of beauty. 


Someone utterly wonderful got their hands on my absolute favourite thing. A rare pair of Irregular Choice. I have wanted these particular shoes for years, but have never been able to get my hands on a pair. Behold, the wonder shoes.



They are perfect. Their perfection is only slightly marred by me pushing my swollen feet into them. When my tootsies & ankles return to their regular size I’ll give them a proper debut. In the mean time I’ll just keep peering into the box to admire my NYC babies. 

Snow is falling…

I’m diving into the festive spirit this year. Love & sparkle & food & presents are exactly what I need. I’d like to finish this dodgy year on a high point & so, I am immersing myself in all things joyous. 

First up, my nails. I don’t mind telling you my normally pretty talons have been looking a tad shabby of late. Not anymore; they are now shiny & bejewelled. How can my joy quota not be upped when I have diamontes shimmering on my fingers.

  

Unfortunately doing your nails whilst incredibly sleep deprived can sometimes make your snowflakes go a wee bit spider webby. It matters not, they’re still cute & I am one step closer to Santa. 

Hey baby, can you bleed like me…

So, Halloween is nearly upon us. I love a bit spooky fun, but this year I’ll be having a fairly quiet night. I have opted to watch some scary movies & hand out sweets to any wee trick or treaters that knock on my door. This means I won’t have an opportunity to dress up, but I do plan to tart my house up with creepy decorations. I also couln’f resist the temptation to give myself a seasonal manicure. 

  
It’s been a while since I’ve done any real nail art; these nails have definitely got me back in the mood. I kept it fairly simple, but I’m chuffed with the results. I hope you all have a weird & whacky Halloween. 

Paint your love all over my world….

It’s been a rough week & I’ve failed entirely to get out of Jammies. Hence, no exciting outfit posts. I have however created some rather lovely nail designs. So, in lieu of a startlingly original outfit, I give you my delightful nails.

These are OPI lacquer wraps. They’re stick on wraps made from real nail polish, so they look better & last longer. I love them.

These are all me & some nail tape. A little colour helps when you feel crap & it’s minus 5 outside.

I’m currently sporting this manicure, which is a pretty classic design for me. This one was all free hand & I’m pretty chuffed with the results.

with my red nail polish…

Painted nails have always been my thing. Growing up, I never saw my mum without immaculate nails. In fact many of my friends should to think she was very glamorous in part due to her beautifully manicured & painted nails. So, I suppose that’s where I caught the bug. Gorgeous nails are a big part of my personal brand.
Now, pretty as my hands are, my darling little sister has taken manicures to the next level. Her nail art is amazing (you can check it out here). Her creativity has inspired me & I invested in some nail brushes. I am far from skilled, it’s going to take some practise, but here are a few of my first experiments.

Paint it black…

i am off to a fancy hotel for my friend’s wedding later today. I am looking forward to my little mini escape. Before I jump in the shower I just have time to dash off a quick blog post.

On Friday I finally got to see Cold in July. I highly recommend this film. It is impossible to describe as it starts as one thing & morphs into something else. It has a great cast & brilliant twists. Go see it.

It was drizzly on Friday, but still really stuffy, tricky weather to dress for. I opted for this tunic dress. It’s light and comfortable with some really pretty embroidery. I stayed monochrome with my jewellery, but couldn’t resist pairing my dress with these star print leggings.
