beauty, DIY, nail polish, reviews


Hi everyone! 🙂

I know it’s not a very original theme for a post, but thought I’d write about Valentine’s Day! I hope that you all have a great day, regardless of whether or not you are in a relationship.

I’ve done a special manicure for Valentine’s Day… I’m not the world’s greatest nail artist so kept my nails pretty simple! First I’ll show you the nails before doing the arty part, featuring O.P.I‘s DS Reserve (DS027). I really like this polish and would give it a quality rating of 4/5 and value rating of 4/5 (O.P.I polish is not cheap in shops here, retailing for approx. $16.95 AUD/bottle):

Here’s what they looked like with some “art”! 🙂 (Do you recognise the nail stickers?! LOL)

For more great examples of nail art including Valentine’s Day nail art designs check out the blog Tip Top Nails‘ latest post here. 🙂


I’m not sure what R will be doing for me for Valentine’s Day but I have made him a cake! I cheated a bit as you will see, but I’ll let the photos tell the story! 🙂

I had this in the pantry so thought I'd try it! 🙂 (Yep this is in the new kitchen I promise to upload more pix of it soon!)

mmm chocolate cake batter which included choc chipssssss

...bake for 50 min...

... the cooked cake with the choccie icing (frosting), ready to decorate!

The finished cake! 🙂

What I used to decorate the cake; available at supermarkets.


Have a great day everyone; thank you all for visiting, reading, following/liking/subscribing! xxxx

  2. Awww I love the cake! I admit I have been slacking these past few sappy holidays and should get back into making a special treat for my honey. I was shocked at the price of OPI where you are!!
