Accessorize Aztec

I am home along this weekend...YAHOOOO!! 

1. Watch a load of old tv shows (Gilmore Girls, Six Feet Under, Buffy)
2. Organise the shoe rack
4. Redo my nails
5. Get the last of the wedding photos in the album

I'm guessing numbers 2 and 5 will not get completed but the thought is there and that is what counts.

This is the manicure I've worn all week. I love this colour. I love the purple to green flip, it is just stunning. The formula is pretty ugh though. I found this to be thick, slow drying and hard to apply. I have worn this for a full 6 days so far with no chips at all (no topcoat or basecoat), the wear on this is amazing. 

Now back to my schedule of tv watching :)

Don't Step On My Blue Suede Shoes

I've done a lot of naughty shopping in the last couple of days. I bought a little haul at Superdrug, a BIG haul at New Look, Boux Avenue has been hit pretty hard and I'm now planning for a modest Matalan order. Barely half way through the month and I'm already off to fairly heavy shopping start... eeek.

I am trying, albeit not very hard, to cut down on the footwear purchases. I'm pulling out some oldies but goodies when it comes to shoes. Today I wore these beauties. 

These were my 21st birthday present from work. Ahh they know me so well there! Blue suede upper, black glitter wedge and platform, round toe... pretty much perfection. 

These were from Schuh. As ever I can highly recommend Schuh, I think I have pretty much single handedly kept the Cambridge branch in business. 

Once again I apologise for my pasty little legs. I promise one day I will get around to slapping some fake tan on, mainly for the safety of everyone else's eyes.

A-England: Perceval

A-England Perceval is a stunning ruby red. I bought this primarily to wear at my wedding as we had a bit of a red and ivory thang going on. Perceval was the only red I found that really perfectly matched the bridesmaids dresses.

The formula on this was just dreamy. Two coats, quick dry and super shiny. This is my only A-England polish, I really don't know why. I have got to get my butt into gear and purchase  me some more!

Walking On Sunshine

I woke up feeling a little glum today so I put my yellow shoes on to brighten up my day! 

Aren't they gorgeous? The heel is spectacular, the yellow is a lovely mustard tone and doesn't make my skin look jaundiced. These were from Schuh about a year and a half ago and as soon as I saw them I just had to have them.

Sorry for my pasty pins, I somehow always manage to forget quite how pale I am!
