A Christmas Manicure

I don't often attempt a French Manicure because I know it'll end up in tears. 

However, festivities got to me and I decided I'd give it a go, but with a Christmas twist. An earlier post saw me desperate for a metallic nail varnish - I thought I found 'the one' when I searched on Amazon, but when it arrived it was just a boring, plain silver. Not really what I'd hoped for. After weeks of sitting aimlessly in my drawer, it suddenly became useful.

I used my Accessorize nail polish for the base and the 'boring, plain silver' for the tip.

I am pleasantly suprised with how it turned out; subtle, chic and pretty. It's festive...but not too festive (red, green, gold, pine needles sprinkled on top sort of thing)

On another Christmassy note...

- The tree is up and decorated (although I was blissfully unaware that the tree had fallen over until this morning...).

- After anticipation, it finally decided to snow today. Not too happy about this however, it's ok for a day, but then it turns to slush and it's not pretty anymore.

- Elf was on the T.V the other night, one of my favourite Christmas films! 

 What is everyone doing to get in the Christmas mood this year? I'd love to hear :)

Not a Pauls Boutique fan, but...

...I'm kind of liking this 'Molly' bag, their most recent design. And yes, it does have the same name as me, so maybe it's meant to be?

So normally I'm not a fan of P.B, I find everything too loud and obnoxious (?). I prefer more conservative bags from designers such as Mulberry (who doesn't love them?) My most recent bag-lust is an ostrich skin, structured bag from ALDO - although sadly it's slowly falling apart. 

Hopefully this new Molly bag will be on its way to me soon. (A little bit scared it may be too small, only 30cm wide may be a problem, what do you think?)

I'm a big fan of quilted clothing this year so this falls into that category perfectly.

Christmas Wishlist

I should know how many days it is 'til christmas, however thanks to my unorganised self, I haven't got an advent calender yet (and I can't be bothered to do the maths). At least this means I get to eat lots of choccies in one go when I do get my act together! 

I've been browsing the Urban Outfitters and ASOS sites for too long now, wishing my pay cheque would come sooner. Instead of keeping it all to myself I thought I'd give you a rather picture-heavy blog post of all the things I like need :)

My unhealthy obsession with moustache's has taken over...(not real ones)
 Ring, £12, lovehearts and crosses
Pillows, £30, Urban Outfitters 
A bit desperate for anything NARS at the moment
 Nars highlighting powder, £20.50, ASOS

Loving the faux fur collar here
Cable Cardi, £45, ASOS

Something I'd love to own, but admittedly probably won't be worn!
Vintagey heart watch, £25, ASOS

In love with the following (and the whole website in general)
 Cream frock, £49, Never Fully Dressed

I could literally carry this on for the entire day, but I'll restrain myself. I love this time of year, bring on the party season! I'd love to hear what all of you would like too :)
