I love to paint my nails, its quite thearaputic. The only problem I have is that they do not last more than two days before they chip. So when I heard about gel nails at Ruby's corner (that were on offer) I had to get them. With gels your polish could last up to a month, a date with Prince Harry could not keep me away. I decided to treat myself and have my fingernails and toes done.
On arriving at Chez Titine the nail technician who was extremely friendly and made me feel as if I was catching up with an old friend sat me down. She then proceeded to buff my nails and file them to achieve the perfect shape. Buffing I am told is an important part as it helps the gel polish to grip to the nail.
The colour choice was limited but I have been told that more colours are on order. I picked black and red. After putting the gel polish on which was called Geleration, I had to place both my hands and toes under a UV lamp to allow them to dry. After this process, a coat of finish was added to my nails.
Within a few minutes my nails were dry. I have had nothing but compliments about how they look. I have had them on for a few weeks now and I'm secretly hoping that they will chip so I can have them re-done. I cannot wait to see what exciting new colours will be available.

You can find Poppy London online. Why not have a look and treat yourself to a checked wool cape with raccoon fur? Maybe even a Raccoon fur collar Parka jacket or even a natural raccoon fur collar scarf to keep you looking amazing on the way to meet the girls for lunch?
If you really want to make an impression then you may want to team one of these items with a Poppy London fur pom pom hat. The hats come in assorted colours so you will find one to match any outfit. Personally I would also buy a pom pom keying to keep your keys on or to use as a cute accessory to hang on your handbag.
While you're looking at the Poppy London site be sure to check out their natural gilets, just because you were not made in Chelsea that does not mean you can't dress like you were.

Eat the right food. Cut out salt and sugar from your diet. Eat out less and buy a cook book to make healthy delicious meals at home. Make sure you drink at least eight glasses of water a day.
2. Get Active
Join a gym and go at least three times a week. If you can afford a personal trainer then it would be beneficial. Go running with a friend or buy a fitness dvd and work out at home.
3. Quit Smoking
Cigarettes are costly and damage your lungs leading to cancer. They age you and remember that cigarettes do not smell of roses.
4. Cut Out Alcohol
Alcohol adds extra calories to your diet and it will increase the risks of you developing liver disease and high blood pressure. A glass or two on a special occasion is fine.
5. Sort Out Your Finances
Start saving for that rainy day, you never know when you may need some extra cash. If you are in debt then try to resolve the problem. Go to citizen's advice or get in touch with a debt management charity like StepChange.
If you do not drive, learn how to. Having your own way to get about can be a blessing.
7. Cut People Off
If you have certain friends that are stopping you from getting what you want out of life and just taking from you say good bye for good. You need positive people in your life.
Make sure you go abroad and see the world. You can even go for a short weekend away if your finances will not stretch that far.
9. Take time out
Have a few minutes for yourself to have a relaxing hot bath, read a book, and reflect on what you have done with your day.
If you are not where you want to be in your career then make a change. Are you in the wrong career or do you need a pay rise. Put a plan in action and make this happen, have a talk with your boss and see what can be done.
