Into the home straight

I haven't updated on my DVT for a while so I thought it was due one. The last time I did a post on it was 3 months into diagnosis and treatment, the halfway mark as I'm due to finish my warfarin at the end of March. So now I'm over the hump and into … Continue reading Into the home straight

Nude blobbicure

Nude blobbicure

Let's try this again. WordPress was not behaving nicely last night and refused to let me post anything. I'm currently wearing this lovely little manicure that is halfway between a dotticure and a blobbicure. Not intentionally but because I am so used to applying thin coats of polish that I didn't do a thick enough … Continue reading Nude blobbicure

Happy New Year everyone! This month hasn't been great so let's just get on with the fail shall we? Here's to hoping 2017 goes better if I follow my resolution.

New year fresh start

New Year resolution for 2017

It's that time of year again where we all make grand plans for ourselves and stick to them for two weeks then slowly let them slide. Let's make this year different. I'm not really a big one for New Year resolutions as the few times I've made them I haven't stuck by them. I'm more … Continue reading New Year resolution for 2017

DVT update

It's coming up to 3 months on 15th December since I was diagnosed with a DVT and it's still very much a learning and long recovery process. I haven't posted an update about it for a while, partly because I don't want it to be something that defines me and partly because there just hasn't … Continue reading DVT update

Wintery sunrise nails

Winter Sunrise nails

I feel I've been doing too many gradients recently but they're so easy to do and I love the way they look. This one was inspired by a sunrise one morning as I was walking in to work. I loved the way the sun was just popping up over the horizon and the gold on … Continue reading Winter Sunrise nails

Health and fitness post #6 01/12/2016

I can't believe it's that time again, where has the year gone?! I particularly can't believe I've been doing these posts for 6 months (well 5 really I suppose). I'm sorting out the degu cage to be Christmassy later so let's get on with this so I can make with festivities. Weight loss goals Talk … Continue reading Health and fitness post #6 01/12/2016

Russian Incense featuring my two favourite polishes and some watermarbling

Russian Incense nails

Today's nail art is a little bit summer and a little bit autumn. It is using my two favourite A England nail polishes, "Incense Burner" and "Katyusha". You can't really see it in any of these pictures but "Incense Burner" has a gorgeous green overtone to it in the right lighting conditions. I still stare … Continue reading Russian Incense nails
