Despite loving the insanely hot weather we are having in London I really enjoy those cool late nights and wrapping up in a luxe jumper outside in the garden. Or in the flat with friends whilst drinking wine and annoying the neighbours with screaming and fits of laughter. So my knit drawers are still in use this summer and I have recently acquired this light cream number from zara which I'm soo in love with.
It's officially the summer and this time it isn't for two weeks! I had been prematurely rocking my wicker bag so much so it is now broken (I have a problem with overloading bags)
So this post is purely from the fact that I am now having to shop to replace my broken bag... Along with a few other things that match perfectly :)
This summer my wardrobe took on a more relaxed feel with light linens, clean cottons and Italian countryside influences. Simplistic tees and mummy style cropped jeans tended to be this summers go to outfit... Along with a plethora of midi-length dresses in natural colours and rustic fabrics sporting vintage style tortoiseshell buttons.
I had a slight fling with the ever-popular mules and indulged in gold statement jewellery... && of course still showcased my love for pearls
Last weekend I had the pleasure of inviting the very own Roxanne Campbell into my home to experience her VIP nail treatment service
On a whole I was honoured to even meet her as these days we don’t even know the people behind beauty brands so the opportunity to meet... and obviously grill her was amazing!
As expected Roxanne was absolutely lovely and I could see straight away why she has worked with so many famous faces over the years. Backstage at fashion week, behind the scenes on red carpet looks and visiting the homes of the rich and famous. Her warm, down to earth and relaxed personality set me at ease and made me feel like I’d known her for years!
As she set up the foot bath, clean towels and unwrapped the new nail tools I looked over the collection picking out what new favourites I would be wearing through spring summer 2018
The collection sees a vibrant pallet that can be worn for different occasions from her vibrant ‘VIOLETS ARE BLUE’
to the ‘OFF TO JAMAICA ‘orange perfect for that summer getaway
I’ve had my nails done so many times... truly it would be silly to try and count, so It was interesting to see the difference between an average manicure and pedicure and the luxury VIP treatment the red carpet stars receive from Roxanne
First thing was prepping my nails and nail beds. Roxanne used oils to soothe and moisturise through out the wholleeee treatment. She buffed and filed my nails before applying the RC base coat, two layers of the RC NUDE TIGHT. She then sealed the look with the glossy top coat.
Neat wouldn’t be the word...My nails have never looked so pristine! I couldn’t help but grin, but clearly knew that I could neverrr get close to the perfectly manicured nails I was gazing at.
Appointments and pricing for Roxanne’s private service is on a request bases
(FYI I booked a month in advance to receive the treatment so if you have a special occasion make sure to give her an email in advance)
