Ciate Nails Inc Nail Varnish Collection Nail Varnish: Topshop's Bashful, Rimmel's Rose Libertine, Nails Inc's Tate, Revlon's Gold Sequins, Models Own's Buff Pink
Although finding time to paint my nails is a bit of a rarity (that, and I usually end up smudging them), when I do find ten minutes of good ol' sit down t.v time these are my shades to curl up with. Due to a bit of a penchant for pastels, these Bashful, Rose Libertine and Buff Pink are perfect go to shades- and make for lovely layering shades if you fancy piling on the glitter too. On top of that I'm also loving Tate by Nail's Inc- as if ever in doubt, a good red'll sort you right out (I'm a poet too!)

Nail Kit: Ciate's Feather Manicure
Now, along with the whole aforementioned timing issue, if I am feeling adventurous I love trying out a new fancy manicure technique- with Ciate's Caviar being my festive finger choice last winter. Although applying feathers to nails is a little daunting (and fiddly) this little bad boy worked surprisingly well- and lasted too! I love the effect well done nail art has, so this was the perfect solution for a really effective mani- top marks Ciate.
Marc Jacobs Daisy Marc Jacobs: Honey
If you know me, you'll know pretty much the only fragrance I ever wear is Daisy (I'm pretty sure I've been wearing it so long, that when I first liked it, It wasn't a 'blogger cliche') and haven't looked back since (if you've seen this image, you'll understand). I actually picked Honey up whilst at Duty Free in Ibiza, the day before it's UK launch (which feels like the flashest beauty thing I could have/have ever done)- and being a fan of every Marc Jacobs fragrance it seemed like the natural procession to make- and I'm pretty sure it was love.
Jo Malone Fragrance Jo Malone: Peony & Blush Suede
In terms of fragrance, I'm not one to actively search out a new scent (once you got a good thing going and all that- see above for reference), and will only ever investigate further if someone I'm with smells really good to which I'll usually say 'Oooh I love your perfume, what is it?!'- but apart from that I'm a lazy perfume buyer- and mainly resort to waiting until Christmas and Birthdays to treat myself to anything new. That was, until, this Jo Malone fragrance dropped through my letterbox and Marcy met his match. This fragrance is beautiful- and I wouldn't say it if I didn't mean it. It feels like a more grown up fragrance to my normal offering, and has the most beautiful floral notes (I think that's a perfume-y word) with a hint of jasmine to match- something I'll definitely going back for once it's run out.
