Tips & Tales - Blog Wrap #3

I just want to say a big thank you to all you wonderful followers and for your lovely comments about my blog. I really really appreciate it! And I am very excited to note that I'm also only 3 followers away from launching my 50 Follower Giveaway! I am putting the prizes together tonight, so as soon as it clicks over to 50, the details of this giveaway will be up.. So thank you once again for your support and kind words! 

Also, just a reminder that there are only a few days left to enter my BYS Wonderland Giveaway! Make sure you follow and comment for your chance to get your hands on those gorgeous glitters!

Check out the pic of the cutest baby in the world after the jump! (Well I think he is anyway! :P)

Sorry for being MIA this weekend... This little bundle of joy was the reason for my absence!

This is my six week old cousin. I had to attend his christening in South Australia as my fiancee and I are his godparents. It was a lovely weekend with family and thankfully the weather was fansastic!! However, spending time with this little guy made me about a million times more clucky than I normally am! :P I think my fiancee has been scared to even look at me since we got home from fear that I will somehow spontaneously become pregnant! lol

To distract my brain from babies, I immersed myself in the nail blogging world and found these little gems to share with you all....

Illamasqua Fern is divine! Its my birthday next week, so this baby is at the top of my birthday wishlist now :D

Sticking with Illamasqua, I'm really not feeling Scarab or Viridian. I feel like they are colours we have seen a million times before, so I won't be purchasing these.

Catherine Howard was my least favourite of Henry's wives in The Tudors, but she is winning on the nail polish stakes!

Sadly, Models Own Car Key colours dont cut it as dupes for Les Khakis, but they make pretty freakin awesome alternatives if you can't get your hands on Chanel.

That's all for today I think. I'm still sick with the flu, so not sure if I will feel up to swatching tonight. Hopefully my replacement Models Own order (first one went missing) is waiting for me at the post office. If it is, I will drag myself out of bed to get some swatches done!

    Thanks for your well wishes! xo

  3. Yay for 50 followers! ^__^ Congrats :D

    Awww, how cute! I hope you had tons of fun!

    I hope you'll feel better with the flu soon, and that you'll also get your Illamasqua Fern and other wishes on your birthday :) It's an amazing polish from what I've seen on the photo, lovely shimmers!

  4. @Karina - Thanks hun! Yeh I had a blast :) I'm going to go to the department store near my work tomorrow and look for Fern! The shimmer in it is divine!
