Last week, I wrote about a new form of nail art that's hitting the market- nail stickers. The first I'd heard of them was through a brand called Skin Art, but I ended up buying Andrea Fulerton nail stickers; a cheaper brand albeit with less designs.
I managed to find some Skin Art nail tattoos in Boots when I popped back to Brighton earlier this week, and wondered how they would compare to the cheaper brand I'd previously tried. For £5.99, Skin Art offered a couple more designs; I preferred their designs to the Andrea Fulerton ones so thought I'd try them out.
The sun made it's first proper appearance of 2013 over the bank holiday weekend just gone, and while the 'heatwave' makes some people look forward to their summer holiday plans, others dread the thought of getting into that unforgiving beachwear. Like the Slimming World brownies recipe, I'd also recommend this recipe for super-speedy Slimming World soup.
Nail art is fast becoming a popular part of women's beauty regimes, with brands like Models Own, Barry M and Revlon bringing out their own nail art pens allowing you to draw on your own patterns, pictures and designs. These are great if you so happen to be talented in the subject of art, or blessed with creativity and a steady hand. However, many, much like myself, aren't.
Last month, my mum and I managed to get hold of some free tickets to the Ideal Home Show in Earls Court. I thought it would be full of middle-to-old-aged women cooing over sofas but I was so wrong. Yes, OK, some parts were a little bit like that, but it was such a big exhibition there was definitely something to be found to suit everyone's interests.

This weekend just gone, I took my mum away to Birmingham for a well-deserved pamper break. For Christmas, I had bought her a 2-for-1 voucher for any Bannatyne's Health Club from offer website 'treatme.net'. For £75, you and whoever you choose to take gets full access to all of the spa's facilities, along with a 40 minute treatment; either a facial and scalp massage, or back, neck and shoulder massage and a scalp massage.
