W is for.....

If you are a bride who is channelling your inner Duchess Catherine but unluckily doesn't have access to a vault of family jewels, then perhaps this might be a suitable pick?

Its from Bando. Here. Happy shopping Brides.

Ever since I saw a similar clutch is the perfectly manicured fingers of Miss Palermo ( lets assume she has gel nail polish now) I have got on board.

If I wore a very classic outfit with this statement clutch I think it work work! I could so rock it!

But this one is kind of on the exy side..... Its by Sara Berman and it can be delivered in three days anywhere. Worldwide. So if you needed it for a hot date on Friday night you could still do it. Although I think such a cute clutch deserves some attention from the ladies so a girls night out might be more appropriate. Straight men don't really squeal over accessories....

So gelishious

I love me a good mani - pedi. My favourite treat.

I calculated roughly how much I spend per year on my nails.. and then I decided to keep this my little secret. So when a friend of mine told a few months ago about gel nail polish and a chip free manicure for 3 weeks I've been wanting to try it out.

I did about a week ago and so far I have cleaned my house from top to bottom, washed a dog, opened a package from net - a -porter - with my bare hands, done some flower arranging, and generally not held back in normal activities that would be frowned upon for ruining nails. IE opening tinned tomatoes gets me every time.

And not a single chip or buff or anything. I am a believer.

The low down is that the gel polish comes off with a special remover at your nail salon.

The brand which I used was gelish. And they had it at my local nail place. I can't recommend it enough!

A thank you card disguising another post about IVF...

What is better than a hand written note?
These could perhaps be too lovely to use.
Thank you cards from: Rifle Paper Company. Here.

What did you all think of last nights Master chef elimination?? I felt bad for Jay but I guess desserts are a big part of a cooking competition. And you need to be a confident chef in all area's. Which is why I would never enter. I'm not sure how far I could get based on my small (but tasty) range of old favourites.

In other news that is not at all related, I have a made a deal with myself (the devil)that I am allowed a small amount of chocolate a day as a treat for going for a walk. "Small amount" is open for interpretation.

There are just 4 more sleeps till my Frozen Embryo Transfer so it's getting super exciting around here. Things are falling into place nicely now. I need to of course start to think seriously about comfort and my good luck transfer outfit for Saturday. And then the lounging at home no, heaving lifting outfits. Could be a new pyjamas purchase coming soon.

I've got my acupuncture lady on speed dial and I am seeing a relaxing long weekend coming my way. Perfect timing.

What have you got planned? Anyone tracking your hormones??
That's' all

Some things floating c'est bon bon's boat this week.

  • Reality tv overload. I'm almost getting my housewives and my masterchef's mixed up. Almost. Honourable mention goes to The Amazing Race Australia... Loved it when the father and son team teared up over the hanging lantern task. Good times.

  • The White Company's new candle scents. The calming white rose is just divine. I am trying not to use it too much.

  • A perfectly starched and ironed white shirt.

  • Acupuncture.

  • Starting to think seriously about planning Project Fiji October 2011. Destination weddings - I love you.

  • My husband trying to teach an old dog how to high five... Cute but I can't see it happening.

  • Twitter for iPhone. I can't tell you how fascinating I find it. I can track my IVF Dr.'s every move. ( In a non stalker/ legal kind of way.)

  • Clinique's Instant Facial Masque. So good. Perfect before a night out.

    Hope you are having a great week. I am spending a special W tomorrow going Bridal shopping with my bestie. Bring it! xxxxxx
