Kinda nearly the weekend....

Did you all have a great long weekend? Just as I was getting used to lots of long weekends, they have now stopped till August. Back to five day working weeks and lots of planning for my holiday with the Boy, which I think might just about get me through work. The plan is October, and I want it to be hot, hot, hot! So we are still trying to pinpoint the best destination for our two week get away, and start saving our pennies.

What plans do you have for your summer holidays?

Inspirational Thursday

I really do admire Mary-Kate and Ashley and not just for their taste in fashion. I love how they have changed and expanded over the years and branched out from their comfort zone of acting into the world of everything and anything. 

The world is very much their oyster!

I gave it a go...

I know I am a bit behind the times but I thought I would give ombre nails a go, following the likes of Lauren Conrad (in the photo). I found the colours I wanted to use and painted my nails, my thumb being the darkest to my little finger being the lightest.

I was pleased with the overall look and ventured outside of the house to go over to my parents. The first thing that my mum asked me was if I had been trying out nail colours in boots and did I want some nail varnish remover? I tried my best to explain that this was the look I was going for but she didn't buy it.

So I think I might just stick with one colour from now on...

I've got the shakes...

This is either amazing nail art, which would mean a very steady hand. Big fail for me! Or maybe it's the nail foil things that seem to be making an appearance on blogs, websites and shops.

Either way I love!

A girl can dream

When I day dream about the type of holiday home I would love to spend my summer in, I dream of the above photo.

How amazing would it be to live in a place like that, look at the windows, all that light! The person who owns this house is one lucky gem...

Lesson on living

Inspirational Thursday

Yep, you have read correctly..... Sleep is my inspiration for this week. Before you start thinking 'what am I talking about' please bear with me.

With the Bank Holidays, four day weeks and time off work to spend time chilling with the boy. I am really struggling this week with work and it's only Thursday! So the above picture is something that is helping me get through the week and also educating me. I have learnt that I should be a Koala, with the amount of sleep I want a day, slight exaggeration - but you get the point.

Am I seeing double?



Jessica Simpson
While catching up on some window shopping on line, I came across the above shoes on ASOS. My first thought was 'ASOS are now stocking Jessica Simpson' but after reading (which I always finds helps, instead of looking at just the pictures) the description I found out they are part of the ASOS Black collection.

The shoes are currently available in Tan and Grey at £75.00, I really hope they bring out some more colours (black would be my first choice). 

You really can't blame me though for mistaking them for the Jessica Simpson Dany (shown in the third photo). Apart from the wood being darker they could be the same shoe!

Khloe Kardashian's wardrobe. Look at all of those shoes, this girl has one hell of a collection! It looks like it could be a wall to wall shoe maze! AMAZING!

As always I love seeing photos of peoples homes but when shoe porn is included I am all over it like a rash. The inspiration here for me is shoes, shoes, some handbags and more shoes. 

These photos were taken by The Coveteur for ELLE magazine and look amazing.

Isabel Lucas - WOW

I have loved her, since her days as a fresh faced blond hair and beach body to die for in Home and Away. Since then her and many others from the show are making it big in Hollywood, and Isabel is flying high in the fashion stakes!

The above images are from the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute gala in New York last night. I love the colour of the dress and the head piece.... Wow.

Bluebell walk

After spending some amazing time off with the Boy, I have to go back to work tomorrow and I really don't want to go back. But on the plus side at least it is a four day week.... So maybe not all bad (who am I trying to kid).

After spending my 11 days chilling out at home, taking Baz for some nice long walks and also exploring what the area I moved to has to offer and it didn't disappoint. My brother also came down to visit so all in all a good time off.

The above photos are from a countryside walk where we came across a woodland full of Bluebells, it looked like something from a Children's book. How cute is the bench made from a log, in the last photo.
