Getting that Summer feeling

I don't know what it is about Summer that makes me feel so happy. Maybe it's that as somebody who has the luxury of working from home, my garden becomes my office. Before Amelia started full time education i could spend my days in the garden with her, bust out the garden toys, flip open my Filofax & get on with some work for a few hours. There's so much more to it though. Summer makes me want to paint my nails, scrub & moisturise parts of my body that haven't seen the light of day for at least 6 months & just chill out with a good read & a cool juice.

This week we've had the pleasure of our eldest daughters company. Jade is my 22 year old daughter who now lives in Leeds but takes a week off around this time every year to come & visit. Jade is either a secret meteorologist or just very lucky when it comes to picking her weeks holiday, because she always seems to pick the hottest week of the year. Our week so far has consisted of making healthy salads, drinking coffee, chatting in the garden, chilling on the hammock,  fake tanning for me & baking in the sun for Jade.

Today i decided to give Jade a  manicure &  a pedicure. She chose China Glaze 'Turned up Turquoise & Barry M 'Yellow Topaz  for her pedicure.

Jade then decided she wanted an ombre type style on her fingers. So with the aid of a cotton bud i created the look below using 2 of the new MUA nail polishes & a China Glaze sparkle polish called White Cap.

After all that filing & polishing i decided on a quick peachy sparkle for my nails that would compliment my new fake golden glow. I went for the Sally Hansen shade 'First Kiss' with a top coat of China Glaze 'White Cap'. I love the subtle shimmer to this China Glaze polish & find that it gives a lovely finish to any nail colour.

Has this glorious weather made you feel all summery? Whats the first thing you do when the sun puts its hat on?
