Mani Monday with Essence – Last week to enter!

So today is our last Mani Monday with Essence post – boohoo! I totally enjoyed showing you guys all my favourite picks from the ever growing Essence nails range and am extremely jealous that one of you gets to win a fab Essence hamper! “Wait, what?!

Mani Monday with Essence: Holostripes

It’s another Monday and another chance to show you a sweeeeet Mani Monday Essence manicure!

Last weeks color,¬†‚ÄėHope for love‘, is hard to shake if you’re a girly girl like I am. I mean, I¬†would paint my¬†nails this pretty pink like all day, errrrday.

So with that said, do I even need a reason why I decided to go with this polish again this week? I decided to pair it up with the totally legit Essence Holo Stripes nail art stickers. (more…)

Are your kids losers? {Stick2Me can help!}

Stick2Me My kids are amazing, but let’s face it, they are losers. They lose things ALL the time.

Are your kids like mine?¬†Maybe your kids are supernaturally gifted in the “coming home with both socks on” department. Maybe¬†you’ve never had to crawl through a sea of tiny shoes, at a kiddies party, only to come up gasping for air, yelling “Has anyone seen a Ben 10 sneaker?!” Maybe your life is different.¬†But¬†I’m guessing that¬†it’s not because, let’s face it, kids are kids and¬†they lose things.
