Bronze Rage

I popped into Boots yesterday to pick up some of the new Models Own nail polishes.  Unfortunately the one near me only had 3 of the new colours but it did have the one I to try wanted the most, bronze rage.  Its a gorgeous metallic rust colour which compliments all the tan/orange/rust colours I have been wearing perfectly.  As with all the Models Own Polishes it goes on like a dream.  Two coats gave perfect coverage.



Just beautiful!  Yep I have been sad enough to base todays outfit around a nail polish...

 Dress: Miss Selfridge

This colour is seriously good!

It's my Mums birthday today, Happy Birthday Mum!  I went for a classic Victoria Sponge in the end.  I decided against using fresh cream and strawberries as it would need to be finished today and my Mum would feel guilty if any of it went to waste.  Instead I filled it with strawberry jam and buttercream so she can share the leftovers with friends on Thursday.  My Mum is doing so well on her diet that I didn't want to ruin it but everyone deserves a cake on their birthday.

I can't wait to have a cheeky slice!

  13. That cake looks scrummy! :D I love the nail polish too, and I base my outfits around the most ridiculous things too so don't worry! :P I wore red nail varnish when I was wearing my red hat recently, a little bit OCD perhaps but I like things to match :)
