Lemonade, Anyone?

It’s May! It’s summer! (shush you, my summer starts in May.) The weather has been so beautiful here recently, it really feels like summer. Perfect for relaxing in the garden with a good book and a glass of fresh lemonade… I disovered pink lemonade in New York last summer and MAN do I miss it… they just don’t make it the same here.





I recently picked up a new shade from 17’s Fast Finish Nail Polish collection – the colour drew my eye, but the name was what hooked me – Pink Lemonade. Also, it’s a jelly! What more could I ask for? This is three coats over one coat of clear.

As you can see, it’s a gorgeously demure shade that’s office-appropriate but also a very cute complement to a more daring outfit. I bought some make-up bits the other day I’d like to show you all too…

Jeez this is a picture-heavy post… do you think you could manage a couple more? Oh go on…

On a happy note, I’d like to thank everyone who visits our blog daily, or weekly, or even occasionally – our traffic has been steadily increasing and we appreciate every comment you leave. Thank you for reading! Also must mention my lovely blogging comrade Cake in the Country, who recently posted a recipe for homemade rhubarb lemonade – yum! Can’t wait to try it out. Here’s the linky – rhubarb lemonade recipe.

Have a great week 😀
