FBLBloggers Challenge

The lovely people over at @FBLBloggers have organised a monthly blogger challenge with a different theme every month. This months theme is Nautical. The idea of the challenge is to allow all types of bloggers i.e beauty, fashion and lifestyle to express themselves in their own particular genre.

I chose to base my nautical theme on nail art, easy right...yeah I thought so too.lol

I battled for 3 hours applying and reapplying different designs till I finally found ones I was happy with, until I applied the top coat which spread the blue nail polish all over the gold (face-palm).

I used Royal Blue, Red and Gold nail polish plus white and blue acrylic paint.

The tools I used was a stripper brush and doting tool.

Look out for future FBLBlogger challenges and themes.

Thank you for reading

Oh My Days...

...seriously think the heat had got to the staff at my local George by Asda today as I managed to bag myself some seriously ridiculously cheap bargains.

Now I'm not sure what the original price of these camouflage kitten heel shoes were as they had no tags on but I image they probably retailed at £12 but I didn't care at all as I picked them up for just £1. 
That's right I did just say £1!!!

My second bargain was this denim jacket .Ive been wanting a denim jacket for a while now and today just fell perfect as I bagged this one for £2 reduced from £18. Get in me!!!

All in all that is a possible saving of £27 for just the 2 items.

I also managed to pick up a top and a dress for my daughter saving a total of £9.50 on the 2 items.I don't think I've ever got bargains this good, 4 items for £7.50.

I can say hand on heart today has probably been the best day I've had in a long time....saving money always makes me smile!!

things i love - Adobe Photoshop Elements first attempt

I have always wanted to find out how to put together a photo collage but didn't have a clue where to start, what programme to use etc.

So I found a truly fab tutorial on google, a beautiful mess a blog by Elsie + Emma using the Adobe Photoshop Elements programme. Ive used the full version of photoshop before and this probably the simplest version i have used so far, yes it takes time to get your head around certain steps but its definitely usable.

It took me about 2 hours to pull this together all in all, and that included walking away for a cup of tea as my brain was hurting.

Yes, I know its no where as cool and pin point sharp as the tutorial , but for my first attempt I'm actually quite happy with the results.....Just need practise, patience and a heap load of time.

I'm hoping this will become a regular slot on my blog, time allowing of course.

...things i love links...

One. Skull Planter

Two. Vintage Orange Teacup With Saucer 

Three. Grey and Beige IKat Pillow Cover

What do you think of my first attempt??

Thank you reading
