Revlon - Sparkling

I bought this Revlon polish at the weekend and i'm now sporting some super glitzy nails!

The shade is called Sparkling by Revlon and is a pinky rose gold glitter with larger glitter discs. It's a very similar formular to Facets of Fuschia I reviewed last year.

I wore it over Revlon Purple Petal but is quite lovely worn on it's own - although much more subtle.

I actually think I would prefer this over a more natural pink so the rose gold stands out a bit more. Navy or grey could work too.

This is two coats of Purple Petal followed by two coats of Sparkling.

This was the first of my nail polish purchases this weekend. I finally got my paws on Chanel May so will review this shortly!

Race day

On Sunday we had a lovely day out at Warwick races for Countryside day with my family. As well as the usual racing we enjoyed a spot of falconry and got up close with the horses and hounds of the local hunt.

I didn't have much luck winning although Matt scooped a rather large win on the last race which was very exciting!

I went for a smart casual look, maybe a bit cabin crew with the scarf...

The cashmere jumper is actually a dress tucked under and has lovely perforation detail over the shoulders and back. The boots i've had for a few years and have had so much use, I love the gold harness and buckle. The coat has also been worn to death this winter - still going strong two years on, although it was draped across the railing most of the day as the sun was so warm.

Grey days

Nothing new in this post just a few old favourites. This top is just so slouchy and comfy yet lightweight and I look forward to wearing it more this summer. These boots are the best shade of grey suede although I have to make sure it's going to be a dry day before wearing them, suede and rain are not a good combination.

How do you store yours?

A little post on my shoe storage, I have two rotations a year, currently Autumn and Winter boots are on display. This book case is in our dressing room come spare room and the ideal way to keep my shoes organised. The rest of my shoes are kept in their boxes stacked away.  I've really need to paint the back of the shelves, i've only just noticed the back is grey two years on....!

Despite a reasonable amount of boots I'm a little bored now and can't wait to swap my Summer sandals and shoes into place!

How do you store your shoes?

Chanel - Pirate

I will always love a glossy red manicure and yesterday I painted them with my newest red - Chanel's Pirate.

It definitely needs two coats, the first coat comes out pinkish but the second transforms to this shade.
