Shimmering Bronze & when in Spain…

Part of the Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Soleil Collection for Summer 2011 was the limited edition Pure Nail Lacquer in Shimmering Bronze!  So while on the beach in Spain, I thought this would be the perfect time to try out this gorgeous bronze colour on my nails: Check it out!
I have never worn a shade like this before and I admit that it took me a little while to get used to, but it’s definitely grown on me. As much as it is marketed to be a summer polish, I also think this shade would be lovely to wear in Autumn or Winter! Above is after applying two coats. The polish has quite a thick consistency but is easy to apply and nice and shimmery/glittery without being too over the top! If you like this nail polish, you better be quick because it’s limited edition! It’s on sale now at House of Frasers and going nationwide from 2nd May (£14) What do you think of Shimmery Bronze – would you rock something like this to the beach?

Also some photo’s from my Easter Holiday in Puerto Banus, Spain:

When in Spain…
♥ Read magazines and sunbathe by the pool
♥ Stuff yourself every morning at the amazing buffet breakfast…
♥ Check out the local shops
♥ Stroll along the Marina boulevard regularly, dreaming you owned one of those amazing boats!
♥ Dress up and have a big night out dancing in the bars!
♥ Eat lots of amazing Spanish Tapas and Seafood Paella
♥ Check out Marbella Old Town which is filled with lovely Spanish little streets
♥ Eat ice creams (Ben & Jerry’s to be exact, nom nom)
♥ Relax and spend quality time with a great friend!

Hope you all had a lovely Easter break and got a visit from the Easter Bunny?! xoxo

Viva La Juicy on the Go!

Since Juicy girls are always on the move, they should always have their Juicy Couture wherever they go.” That’s why Juicy Couture created two adorable little Eau de Parfum travellers, complete with the juiciest strawberry or yummiest cupcake charms…so now your Juicy Couture spritz, is always at your fingertips!
They created them for their famous fragrances ‘The Juicy Couture’ and ‘Viva La Juicy’
I was so very lucky to be sent one of these gorgeous little travellers to take with me on holiday this Easter:

Viva La Juicy is a sweet and fruity fragrance. The top notes are of wild berries and juicy mandarin. These are the scents that will initially reach your nose and it is fruity but not too strong. The middle notes are of jasmine, gardenia and honeysuckle, all sweet scents but nice and mellow. The base notes include amber, vanilla, carmel, sandalwood and praline. These rich tones give balance to the sweetness, making it a full and complex fragrance. It has a light scent and is not at all overpowering. You won’t want to stop smelling it. The scent is long lasting, and it will bring joy to your mind and body. If you are young at heart and love life, you will love Viva La Juicy!

I have loved wearing this frangrance and the handy little traveller size is perfect to take on holidays or pop in your purse for a night out on the town! Viva La Juicy is a really nice glamorous and fabulous smell, love it :)

Juicy EDP, 30ml Travellers priced at £39.50 / €51.00

Available UK wide from 12th April 2011 in Selfridges, Harrods, Debenhams , Harvey Nichols, The Perfume Shop, The Fragrance Shop, selected House of Fraser and John Lewis stores, Brown Thomas and Arnotts in Ireland.

Some recent retail therapy…

Being the little shopping addict that I am check out some great little purchases I picked up recently:
Stone/Beige coloured wedge heels from New Look – £22.99
I had been looking for some natural coloured wedges for a while and think these will look great with jeans or a simple dress. Plus major bonus points because they are comfy!
Everyone raves about Primark and yes as much as Primark is such good value and you can find some great items there, the Oxford Street shop truly terrifies me. I can never be bothered trying things on or actually standing in the queue for an hour to pay for things I want. It’s always SO messy and SO busy plus my heart rate increases and I get stressed out the minute I walk in haha! However, a few weeks ago I risked my life and had a wee shopping spree at Primark. These are some of the items I picked up: 
Black & Gold Waist Belt – £5
Set of gold rings – £1.50
Genuine Leather Bejewelled Sandals £12

Have you had some great retail therapy recently? Tell me about your new purchases :) xoxo
