Glimpses of the Weekend

Well, it didn't rain until last night so that was a bonus!  I hope you've all had a wonderful relaxing weekend and are ready for the week ahead?  My weekend was spent catching up with family and friends with a bit of shopping for my daughter's graduation dress... we went here and managed to spend 5 hours trying on dresses and just having a great time nice!  We also managed to bag ourselves a freebie courtesy of St Tropez's Spraycation campaign.  I have to admit to being a spray tan virgin but it was a very simple process (albeit in a fake beachhut in the middle of Westfield) and I'm absolutely delighted with the result - a very natural looking golden tan. Thank you St Tropez.  Spraycation is currently doing a tour of the UK so check it out and fake it, don't bake it!
I did something else new this weekend too...a g&t made with Hendrick's gin!  I quite like a g&t and was persuaded by a friend to buy a bottle of Hendrick's but hadn't got round to trying it until this weekend.  I'm sold!  It's distilled in very small batches in a distillery in Scotland and infused with rose and cucumber.  I mixed mine with tonic spritzed with a lemon, lots of ice and a slice of cucumber.  Delicious and refreshing.  If you haven't tried it yet I recommend it.

Whilst out shopping we popped into Boots as I'd read that they are now stocking essie nail polish.  Previously I'd had to trek around trying to find this brand and hurrah, hurrah, it's true.  Boots came up trumps with a large selection of polishes, all with wonderful sounding names like 'bikini so teeny', 'cascade cool' 'mojito madness' and 'all tied up'. I bought a popping coral called 'cute as a button' - what do think?
