Sweet Tooth!

It seems the sun has not given up yet. Yep, that's right. Us Londoners are blessed enough to be bathed in more sunny rays, and it looks like it's set to continue. Yipee!!! J'adore le sun!

Anyway, yesterday, I decided to treat my sisters to an afternoon in the Leicester Square's Haagen Daazs Café. Firstly, because it was sunny and I needed to get out, secondly because two of my lil' sis celebrated their brithdays last week and I had promised it to them as a belated birthday present, and thirdy to satisfy the yearnings of my sweet tooth!

As the temperature was above 20 degrees , I thought it would be a good idea to pull out last summer's clothes. (Sorry about the poor picture quality guys, I was in a rush and didn't have the time to do loads of takes!)

  Jacket - Primark
Top - Camieau
Skirt - Primark
Gladiator Sandals - Oasis
Shades  - New Look

I am always a bit aprehensive about bringing out these sandals. Simply because I think they are a bit audacious. Also, they tend to dry out my legs.  (However, my good friend Domzy pointed out that that's just a simple fact of leather, so I guess I should just get on with it, shouldn't I?)

Before I forget, let me share with you the best part of the day!

That's right! Fat girl's Style

What have you been up to in the last few days? Don't let the sun go to waste. Get out and enjoy yourself!

Amusez Vouz Bien!

J'adore...Beauty UK Glam Nails

Hi guys! It has been a while hasn't it? Please forgive me. This blog is still in its birthing stage, and I am not really getting off to a good start, am I? Well, I promise to change my ways and feed you with more regular posts.

For the past week or so, London town has been drenched in glorious sunshine, and people are shedding their morose blacks and greys and exchanging them for bright colours, cute jackets and sun shades.All the while, my job has left me at the mercy of a bland grey uniform. Oh how I hate uniform! (But that's for another post). I have found that the only way to brighten up a morbid uniform, where accessories is forbidden,  is with make up.

This is where I introduce you to the very first of my J'adore... posts - a feature where I invite you to the products and clothes I love the most. So ladies, I present to you Beauty UK Glam Nails in Soft Grey.

I normally love wearing bright reds and pinks on my nails, but on my first day at my job when I was told I could not wear bright nail polish, I knew I had to find an alternative. I find the colour goes well with dark skin, as it stands out more. I also love the same brand in Smokey Lilac. And with a lick of top coat it lasts around a week before it starts peeling. Be careful though, it starts to look a bit dull after a few days!

You can buy Beauty UK Glam Nails from Superdrug. I can't remember the price exactly but I know it costs under £2, so it's definitely a bargain, and a good investment for the summer.

I am now looking for other subtle colours that will blend with my uniform. Any suggestions? Please let me know.

Amusez Vous Bien
