Monday Manicure Red OPI by Gwen Stefani

Not gonna lie,  I love Gwen a little bit too much, I think she is amazeballs in all that she does and she is an extreme chick with style, plus she spells her surname how I spell my first name although mines said like the average stephanie not stef-arnie!

Anyways I diverse it’s Monday (I still have just over an hour left of Monday!) I have to manicure my nails today I chose this amazing box set including the red Over and Over A-Gwen by OPI created by Gwen Stefani it’s awesome!
It’s a strong red and the nail art all be it fiddly is edgy and gets people being creative with their own nails. I think this is worth every penny and would recommend over and over a-gwen. Haha ♥

Christmas Wish List Part 1 BEAUTYfull Stocking!

Ok I LOVE LOVE LOVE Christmas and so each week I’m going to be posting a Christmas Wish List of must have gifts to either put on your list or spoil others this week I’m starting with my forte BEAUTY!!! This week is all about the little gifts; the Secret Santa or Stocking Filler type pressies!

I will start with the stockings then move on to the fillers for 2 beauty inspired stockings you could begin with these limited edition ones from Arbonne.



Each one is £35.00 when you make a qualifying purchase, I think they are über cute and the products are so luxurious whilst being safe and beneficial. If you would like to know more about Arbonne, it is a product range I work alongside in my beauty room, feel free to pick my brain. There is a post coming later on why I choose to work with them.
