Happy New Year : Deborah Lippmann, Drinks and a Dress.

31 December 2011

My New Years Eve Nails - 'Candy Shop' Deborah Lippmann
'Get This Party Started' - Deborah Lippman
Champagne ready and waiting.

New beginnings.
I've spent my last day of 2011 painting my nails. As if by a stroke of magic the aptly named nail set 'Get This Party Started' by Deborah Lippmann arrived on my doorstep today, over a week before the estimated delivery date. I chose the colour 'Candy Shop' for tonight, I will post about the whole set in more detail another day.
Of course when I say 'I spent the day' I actually mean a few hours,whilst tooling around in between doing various other things. I've spent a lot of time today thinking about the year that has just passed and the things that have happened. I have been living in Korea for the third year so that's been a big experience. I've learnt a lot more about the cultures there and made many more great friends. I also had my mum visit me which was a highlight of the summer. And now I have the pleasure of being back in England with my friends and family here. There's been two big events that stand out for me though. Steve and I got engaged (still smiling) just a few weeks ago and in August I began this blog.

The five months since I first created this little piece of internet feel like they've flown by but I couldn't be happier with how my blog is growing. I'd like to take this chance to thank you all for your support over the last few months. I am so grateful to all of you who read, comment and follow my blog!

I wish you all the very best for the New Year. I hope that with a new year comes lots of fresh new opportunities and great experiences for you all. Have a fantastic night tonight, celebrate the new beginning in style whatever you do (I know you all will)! Make sure you come back in the New Year because I have lots more to share with you and I aim to make my blog better and better.

Happy New Year Lovlies! xxx

  1. Hey, thank you for following my blog!:)

    I think I just got a tad over excited about that nail polish!
    It's absolutely gorgeous (and delightfully girly!)

    I may have to make a cheeky purchase if I can find it.

    Happy New Year!
