A few days of sunshine is all it takes to put a spring in my step and have me reaching for all the bright colours I can find. After spending a sunny afternoon in the park with my boys, I managed to tire them both out enough to steal a few minutes to paint my nails. This is now a luxury it seems.

There’s been a couple dry days, the sun has peeked out and it’s even been warm on a few occasions. In Glasgow this counts as Spring. Of course I had to go for some bright Spring like nails to encourage the seasons along.

Friday was very much the an end if an era. I left my job after almost seven years to move on to hopefully greener pastures. It’s a bit scary leaving what you know and love but I’m sure it’s the right decision and will all work out. The hardest part was leaving all my colleagues friends. There were tears a plenty throughout the day and … Continue reading Another Turning Point, A Fork Stuck in the Road
I’ve seen a few variations on this type of nail art, I like the simplicity of it. It helps to slim down my fat fingers, just like a panelled dress can slim down you waist. The fact that I only had 30mins to do my nails might also have been a deciding factor. I decided to go for purples for nice bright springy look. I’m … Continue reading An Ocean of Violets in Bloom
As much as I love the sunny weather it is not my friend. I really need to get myself a proper camera and brush up my photography skills. I got these snaps on Easter Sunday. I had a lovely little day visiting my mum with my sister and a friend. Typical Easter Sunday, yummy lunch and a tonne of chocolate. Oh and the standard present … Continue reading King of My Castle
You know how we all thought it was spring? It’s still bloody freezing in Glasgow, can someone tell Mother Nature please. Anyway I thought I’d bring some spring to my nails with this little cherry blossom pattern. When I was a kid there was some at the bottom of my street. I always loved how pretty the cherry blossoms were and how they covered the … Continue reading The Leaves are Shining in the Sun
It seems like Maxi skirts are everywhere just now, seen quite a few blog posts featuring them. I’m desperate to make a few in different colours but always forget to buy elastic when I’m out, doh. So I’m stuck with this one you’ve seen before for now. This vest I loved so much that I bought it even though it was 2 sizes too big. … Continue reading It’s Been A Long Cold Lonely Winter
I finally got my new colours which I ordered on eBay a few weeks ago. The green is darker than I was expecting but I’m still loving the spring colours. I wanted a simple pattern to show off my new colours. I started with the purple. I only painted three quarters of the nail as if the shellac gets too thick it peels. I then … Continue reading Somewhere In My Heart
It’s been a pretty lazy weekend. Have enjoyed some lovely dog walks in the milder weather and it’s been nice to just relax and do not very much. It did mean I got round to sorting things which have been boxed up since the move. Most importantly setting up my beloved old school sewing machine. I’m inspired and I’m going to buy some patterns etc … Continue reading Don’t even need to buy a new dress
