Smart gloves, smart present

So as it's now only 5 weeks to Christmas (eeeeeeeek!) my Christmas shopping is well under way. I don't know about you but I always find that when I'm shopping for the ladies in my life I could spend and spend without running out of ideas. The men, however, are a different matter! They are always so difficult to come up with new ideas for, and I don't think they'd quite appreciate a lovely make up set in the same way as my mum and besties would do!

I was recently sent these Smart Gloves from Paramountzone and I think they'd make the perfect gift. They're so practical, allowing him to stay in touch and stay warm all at the same time and what man doesn't love a new gadget?! The site has loads of boys toys and cool gadgets for men so I'll definitely be placing an order for the men in my life!

I wore the gloves to a football match recently and was really impressed by how they kept my hands cosy, but I could still tweet about the game, text my friends at the same time! Must haves!!

Watch a gift

So it seems I've been away longer than I thought I had. September and October have been pretty busy months for me. With a holiday in September and completing my acrylic nails course in October I feel like I haven't had a minute to spare. But hey I'm back now and ready to get right back into my blogging stride!

And what better way to start than with this fab watch I received from the lovely people at In a stunning rose gold colour, my new favourite metal. And with a sparkly leopard print face, my always favourite print. This watch was right up my street!! The face is bigger in real life than it looked on the site, but that's a good thing in my books. I've included a pic of the watch on my wrist so you can see what it looks like in relation to a real arm.

At just £25 this watch is such a bargain, you'd need to really look closely to realise it's not a more expensive, designer style. I'll definitely be back on the website as I continue my Christmas shopping as they have so much choice for men and women and the styles are all really reasonably priced.

Nails of the day - 3 for the price of 1

As we had a family party last week, my sister in law Laura and my friend Victoria tasked me with doing their nails the night before it. So I thought I'd share the designs with you. Both were firsts for me, and I really loved the end result, as did the girls luckily enough!

For Victoria I did my first ever Aztec nails design. A bit of a mix match of colours and designs meant she could work her outfit around it for the next night. When she showed her nails to her boyfriend he told her they looked like Spanish pots, result!

Laura had asked me to do her a design in black and white but pretty much left the rest up to me. I decided to try out a Paisley print design, which I've been looking to do for a while. I was really pleased with the way they turned out, but decided just to do the design on her ring fingers and highlight the rest of her nails with a polka dot trim.

After spending all my time doing their nails, waiting for coats to dry etc, I ended up with a pretty boring design on my own nails! An all over pail pink with neon pink leopard print on my ring fingers. They did go with my dress though...outfit post to come! Please ignore the dodgy fake tan on my fingers. It was just freshly applied...

What do you think? Which design is your favourite?

BassBuds review

I pretty much spend my life listening to music. When I'm in the house, in the car, at the gym, you name it my iPod's usually on a constant shuffle....not in public though, my cringeworthy music collection would scare off even my closest friends! So when I was sent these gorgeous earphones from BassBuds I couldn't wait to try them out.

Now I'm not gonna pretend I'm some kind of expert when it comes to the technicalities of headphones or the optimum acoustics or anything like that, but aren't they pretty??? They come in this fabulous display box like a piece of jewellery and in a selection of amazing colours. Although I've got to admit I was chuffed to be sent this black style, they're pretty suave! But the piece de resistance is the beauty of a Swarovski crystal in each bud. I know I sound a lot like a girl here, but if they sparkle I'm pretty much sold!

Don't worry though they're not all style and no function. The headphones sound really amazing too, they come complete with various sized soft ear buds so you can choose the right pair for the best fit for you. Plus they have a wee mic so you can use them with your phone, and a button halfway down the wire so you can play and pause your music or answer calls.

Check out the full range on the BassBuds micro site.
