It’s all about nails with OPI

OPI is hands down one of my favourite brands when it comes to nail polish. Their longevity, colour selection and quirky names are just a few reasons why I choose OPI. The other main selling point for me is they often release new colour collections, and well I am a sucker for any new Beauty collection let’s be honest. OPI New Zealand kindly sent me the recent release Bright’s Collection and

Vintage Summer

I may be stating the obvious but Summer has got to be my favourite times of the year. I mean how can you fault hanging at the beach with your pals, soaking up the sunshine and listening to tunes that get your foot a tapping.

Make your footprints count

It’s not every day you get asked to try out a new pair of jandals, so with my Hawaii trip close by at the time I thought why not. In the Summer time I am a huge jandal wearer, especially if they are stylish, Anti-bacterial and most of all comfortable. Wishbones are a brand that not only provide all of the above, but their story is one that melts your

Lipstik is a label I have purchased often and so far have loved every single style, but the “Jase” heels totally blow them

Don’t be silly you are probably talking to one
