I decided to have another go at doing Cath Kidstonfloral printed nails and I’m happier with the outcome this time. They’re actually surprisingly easy to do once you get the hand of it and have a steady hand! I used Barry M Blue Moon for the base and then a white nail art pen for the dots.

Of course, this brings me to eBay! eBay sells so much stuff and I love buying from Asian sellers as well as British. Their postage is usually free but obviously it’s quicker to pay a little extra and buy from a UK…

Is anyone else here obsessed with watching Kirsties Vintage Home? I really enjoy watching it and picking up some great ideas and tips on how to transform any room into a chic vintage style interior. Kirstie Allsopp has also designed and created a range of homeware accessories, and I previously showed you the amazingly gorgeous cushions I have with cute appliqued designs. I was also kindly sent a couple of items from her kitchen range, with the gorgeous Savannah Coral print from Palmers Department Store.  The chic Savannah Coral pattern consists of green chickens and pink and blue chicks, with…
