NOTD: The Perfect Caramel Martini

Just a passing post today to share my NOTD. I placed an order recently with Darling Diva Polish on Etsy for a 5 for 25 mystery pack, and Flirt. I had to try Caramel Martini (which came in the mystery deal) straightaway! I'm not usually keen on brown polish, but I guess brown glitter is a different story ;)

A Little Chilli & Spice

How's everyone doing today? Well I hope! I've been having an extremely stressful time at work recently, and it has worn me out. To top it off, a motorbike decided to get up close to the back of my car, and my back is still suffering the after effects :( On a happier note, today I have a collection for you. You read right, an entire collection! I've been a fan of Mavala since I first tried the little bottles of goodness. When the Chilli & Spice collection was announced alongside promotional photos I knew I just had to have them. Thanks to Feelunique, I caved to the peer pressure in my mind, and bought all 6.

My Sunny Leo S3 Case

This is actually my first technology-related post. I keep meaning to post about my buys, but it just doesn't happen... until now. Now I'm always browsing Etsy, for which I blame my original swap buddies Bridget, Crystal & Marisa, and so I decided to have a look there for S3 cases, and boy was there a plethora! I wanted something a bit different from my previous cases which were two lovely duochrome affairs from Amazon. Here's a link to the version for iPhone 5 as it shows all the colours in one photo (my buys were Blue Purple and Olive Green). You ask why I didn't get another one? Pretty they may be, durable they are not. Two cases in two months? The odds were not in my favour. Speaking of which, I can't wait for Hunger Games Catching Fire to be released!

In the end I chose a design sold by a company called Create and Case. They also have their own website, which is where I purchased my case from. This design is called Sunny Leo. The facts that I'm a Leo and I love the Sun may have had something to do with my picking this case ;) The great thing is that you can also customise your case, though I decided to keep it simple and go with the 'basic' Artist Designed case. A percentage of every sale goes to the designer, and I think that's a great concept to encourage more beautiful designs :)

High 5 Polish Days!

Good morning all! I'm a little late to the Polish Days party, but better late than never! It's also the first anniversary of Polish Days, I haven't taken part in all of them, but a huge thanks to the lovely Hannah at Polly Polish for starting PD and keeping it going :) I had almost forgotten about this month's PD, until my friend Lauretta from A Lacquered Affair kindly reminded me ;)

However, me being me, forgot again until I saw Susan's post last night on The Subtle Shimmer while trying to catch up on tweets. I used to have a brilliant memory, so I'm blaming my recent forgetfulness on work stress... Anyway, for your viewing pleasure - or entertainment though if you need a giggle - I present the number 5!
