September Faves

It’s the 9th month of favourites… I can’t believe how fast the year has gone. Blink and it’ll be Christmas 😁

So let’s start with a this duvet set that was my favourite before it even arrived. I fell in love with it online and thought yes you’ll make me very happy… Its so snuggly and warm I feel like hibernating in it every night.


I am a sucker for nail varnishes that last and look good so these  two by Barry M look just like gel but are infact Molten Metal shades 💅🏼

The pink one is so me and the purple one is a perfect autumnal colour.

A bit of pampering has taken place through the month of September and this weekend I had a spa stay with my Mum and Sister in law to be Kerry it was nice to chill out and it all started with this delicious cream tea.


I have always loved poetry, I will have to look out the book I made age 7 or 8…it was hilarious. However I am inspired by this wonderful poet to write and publish my own poetry book
Maya Angelou… and this is one of her fab books.
A must read.

So there are a few of my favourite things…

What are some of yours?

Let’s get festive

Now that it’s December I’m trying to get myself into a christmassy kind of mood.

I don’t frown on anyone who wants to start getting their festivities going soon after Halloween.

We are all different.

So i I found out some red nail varnish and glitter top coat. I rarely wear the colour only around December so it makes it a little more special.

The christmas songs have already been on the radio a good few weeks. So i couldn’t help singing along to them.

One of my favourites that really gets me in the mood and singing is this one by The Pogues

Once we get the decorations down from the loft i will definitely be more like The Elf and less like The Grinch.

Here’s also wishing we have a bit of snow because snow at Christmas time is just magical.

Since i only had 3 colours and 5 fingers i had to try and decide how to make it look effective and this was what i went for.

For the tips i used different brands as i just made do with what i already had.

– Emerald Tropic (Seventeen)

– Pump up the purple (Rimmel)

– Kiss me on my tulips (O.P.I)

I fancied giving my nails a quick pampering and had a nosey in my vanity case…… This where I keep all the nail varnishes I’ve picked up and are still useable. Nothings worse than finding one you used to love and its separated.

The 3 I picked to get the look above which was really quite easy were:

Rimmel/ Rita Ora -Plump up the purple

OPI – Kiss me on my tulips

Loreal – le French manicure liner

Firstly I pained the ring fingers pink with the OPI Kiss me on my tulips because we have all done it before when we want to do this kind of look and accidently paint them all the same colour.

Next I paint the rest of my nails with Rimmels Plump up the purple which usually I don’t go for dark colours but thought why not.

Last of all I take Loreal le French manicure pen and do random dots on each nail to give it that je ne sais quoi.

I really like the look and it took all of 10 minutes to do.
