Colour The Grey Away

I couldn't believe that I was swimming in the Mediterranean on the Monday and then able to come home  from Spain to go swimming in the Atlantic on the Thursday, all because our wee Emerald Isle was having a love affair with the Sun. But sure like all public affairs the nation bathed in its scandal and then once the  proverbial 'honeymoon period' was over there was nothing...

The mistress woke up in a heavy cloud of confusion as The Sun had left her. Would he be back? Would she feel his finger rays of heat and light tickle her again? We all sat under her misery as she cried, thinking Ireland would turn into a tropical country.


Anyway, I was well prepared for the 'I knew this would happen' weather because I got two little gems from my new favourite website, Garden Pharmacy.

Since Mr. Grey was now back on the scene with our poor misunderstood Eire, I decided to make use of these two newly purchased items to brighten up my mood.

Living in Derry doesn't give me access to all the products like I would get in London, so that's why when I found Garden Pharmacy I did a mental rave dance. *Big fish, Little fish, Cardboard box*

The Art Deco lipstick looks so beautiful and I chose No. 13.05- Deep Tango Red. For me this is perfect for both Summer and Winter because it's not too dark for summer, yet not overly bright for creating those vampy winter looks. 

Then I spotted 'Essie', quite the evasive nail polish brand in my part of the woods, so I indulged in a little colour called 'Geranium'. 

There I was, looking out the window at Ireland's fury and her tear soaked terrains.  At that  I tied up my hair, put on the nail polish, put on my lipstick and went out and braced the woman scorned.

If you'd like to check out any of the other colours in both the Art Deco lipsticks and Essie nail polish, just check out Garden Pharmacy's site-

Let me know if you ordered anything off this addictive site.
