Hey there lovelies, Happy Jubilee Weekend! Hope you’re all having a ball whatever you’re up to :) The hopes of getting some sun, sea & sand today didn’t exactly go according to plan, not only did my mate & I find it near impossible to shift our lazy bum selves from the comforts of our warm beds but looking out the window this morn, England appears to have decided to be a bit of an arse again with the weather! *le sigh!* So today Jubilee celebrations within this household have consisted of pigging out in a most glorious fashion. High five! Though after a pretty hectic weekend including a girlie night Saturday & the wedding last night, a days bed rest has been just what the Dr ordered for this geriatric. :-/
However, surrounded by all the wonderful patriotism, I did want to get in to the spirit of things of course, so what better way than with a Jubilee mani, albeit a bloomin abysmal one! But hey, ho I went with it, had a play around with the new nail art brushes that recently came in to my possession & wacked some most wonky union jacks on to the nails along with a diamond glitter accent finger :)
Yah, I know…you should see the other hand. But they actually don’t look half bad from a distance & some kind soles did comment on them which was most sweet & did cheer me muchly. For the flags I used Barry M 292 (my bottle is an old one & doesn’t have a name on it!), a lovely deep blue of which I applied just one coat, then with me art brushes used No7 Snowflake for the white & Nails Inc Villiers Street for the red. The accent finger is a coat of Face of Australia Molten Metallics Nail Enamel in Titanium & my fav Deborah Lippmann Today Was A Fairytale applied over for some sparkly diamond effect :)
My outfit of the day involves this pretty white silk polka dot dress with lace collar that I picked up in an independent boutique a while back now & what has got to be my most FAVOURITE shoes in my cupboard, I just love them too much & couldn’t wait to share them with ya!
Dress - Independent Boutique, Leggings - New Look, Belt - Gifted, Shoes - Irregular Choice
The shoes in question are from Irregular Choice which I picked up on Portobello Road the last time I was in London. I have been wanting a pair of Irregular Choice shoes for absolutely ages after falling in love with all their quirky & beautifully unique designs & now I finally do! They are just so pretty to look at let alone wear but damn I will wear the hell outta these bad boys fo’ sure! I just love everything about them from the design to the awesome print which includes, polka dots, gingham & roses in an abundance of baby blue & pink…what more can a girl want from a shoe?
Thanks for reading my beauts! What have you all been up to this long bank holiday?
