Anyone who has read my Christmas wishlist post will know that I was lusting after a Tangle Teezer. I was browsing the beauty aisles in my local Pound Stretcher looking for a bargain when I came across a dupe – Tangle Attack.

The lovely Charlotte over on has nominated me for a Liebster award.

It was such a nice thing to see pop into my inbox as it’s the first time anything like this has happened to me since I started my blog. The aim of the award is to help promote blogs with less than 200 followers.

Glamour freebie

13 Nov

I love nothing more than spending a lazy evening drinking copious amounts of tea while reading a glossy magazine.

Glamour has been my favourite magazine for a few years now and they like to treat their readers to a freebie every now and again.

This months edition has the lovely Katy Perry as the cover star and not only gives you the choice of four Kate Spade for Nails Inc polishes (worth £11) but also a Body Shop gift card that could contain £3, £15 or £100 (you have to go in store to find out) – all for the £2 price of the magazine.

When I was younger, I could fire off hundreds of answers to this question but as I’ve got older I’ve found it more difficult to answer. So I’ve popped my thinking cap on and come up with a few ideas and here’s what I’ve got so far…

Autumn nails

1 Nov

Autumn has well and truly arrived. Brown leaves are scattering the pavement, there’s a chill in the air and I’m digging my jumpers out of my wardrobe.

It’s also time to say goodbye to my bright summer nails and embrace the autumn colours. I’ve selected a few of my favourites that I’ll be wearing for the next few weeks.
