choo choo, jimmy!

a few days ago i was walking through fenwick and some lady pounced on me with the new jimmy choo perfume. since that fatal afternoon i've been in love with it ever since, deliberately walking through department stores to get a cheeky spray of it! i've never EVER bought myself perfume, but today i bit the bullet and did it. on valentines day. what a kick in the teeth. not even my dad wanted to buy me it?!

anyway because it's valentines day boots had it packaged up nicely in a box with some free samples and chocolates so all was well. when i was waiting in the queue a man in front of me offered me his gift card, he said he'd never use it. it was very kind of him and meant i got a few pounds off. i love nice strangers.

the bottle is so cute and kind of reminds me of flowerbomb? which i've made myself sick with! i used to wear it CONSTANTLY but now i'm not a massive fan. sorry flowerbomb, i've moved on.


as not to completely dismiss valentines day i painted my nails for the occasion. even though they're now a bit battered from typing a million emails at work they're still pink. and glittery. what's not to love about them!? absolutely DREADING taking it off though, i have such a love/hate relationship with glitter polishes. this one is pink fizz from models own.

ps, just wanted to say hi and thankyou for following my little blog! i never thought ANYONE would be interested in what i had to say let alone take the time to leave me nice comments! i think i'm going to organise a little giveaway soon, just to show my appreciation :)

  2. Ohh, I really like your nails :) What have you used on them?

    Don't feel bad about buying yourself perfume although I hope you guilt tripped your dad for not getting it for you as a Valentine's present ;)

  6. oooh - nice little extra from boots :)

    I was a complete flowerbomb girl - then I smelled this, have been dropping hints left right and centre - to no avail yet.

    if you like sweet perfumes though, have you tried diamond? it's one of next's own brand perfumes and is lovely!!

    oh, and new follower - enjoyed having a wee peep through your blog!

  10. Your nails look gorgeous, but you're right, glitter is so annoying to take off! But it looks so pretty... always tempts me into putting it on, then when I take it off I'm like 'omg, never again'. :)

  15. Ooh I've heard so many good things about this fragrance I'm going to have to go and give it a sniff! I feel so out of the loop haha. I love they way they packaged it all up, super cute for valentines day although I think they should do it all year round! Much better hehe. That nail colour is gorgeous! I'm behind the times again not having any Models Own polishes. I'm determined to get my nails looking super nice for the summer. Yours are beautiful! xoxo
