My new stuff from "born pretty"

Playing around with my new stamping plates and cute little studs...

I used revlon "Dreamer" for the base baby blue colour and stamping plate m64...

Cute (and a little bit crooked) look.

I think I could grow to love studs!

Cute cross hatched...

Cute yeah?
I saw a "Wizard of Oz" inspired manicure the other day and it had a similar design (based on her dress)

but since I love pink...

What do you think?


I used:
Revlon white on white
L.A. Art Deco Baby Pink
and Sally Hansen bright pink for the dots.

A floral jacket...

I actually haven't worn this jacket too much.

When I first bought it I was slightly hesistant, 
 I knew I wanted to get into the trend of pattern jackets, and this was a cute floral pattern (I love floral!)
It was on sale, so was a bit of a bargin, new in store and on sale! 
but I was in the "but what will I wear it with?" phase...

I bought it,(obviously) 
I wore it to work one day - got heaps of compliments! 

then today woke up, put on comfy clothes, jeans and t-shirt...
thought how could I dress it up in a comfy easy way,
Stick on a jacket...
and it does look so good! 

Do you like it too?
Jacket: Shanton (but I've also spied at Farmers)
Top: Max
Jeans: Max (sadly have spilt blue nail polish on the bottom of one leg...)
Shoes: Briarwood

Blue for Diabetes!

Today is World Diabetes Day
According to International Diabetes Federation today is World Diabetes Day,
where we unite in blue...


So I painted my nails my favourite Kleancolour neon sapphire (Navy Blue) 
and played around with my L.A. Art Deco nail art brushes in baby blue...
I think I like the idea, and definitely in the future if I tidied it up a little it would be awesome...

Here's to those of you I know who are living with Diabetes. 
You are awesome!

Yes, Coldplay was awesome!

So I totally went to Coldplay on Saturday!
Best money ever spent!!!!!!
Absolutely amazing!

And look... My outfit matched the show...

My cute red shoes, and the nails to match...

So I quite like my outfit today!
Red, floral and still-pretty-new...

I have my new black pants and my new red shoes...

I thought I could give a matching manicure, half-moons a go... 
It didn't really work, I wanted to get the effect similar to my shoes of a glittery half-moon and a plain red. 
(as you can see you can hardly tell) 


But not to worry, 
instead I just substituted red tips for orange tips,
and the half-moon really shows...


Sally Hansen Red Carpet (for the half moon)
Revlon Revlon Red

Cute spotty nails

So I don't actually own any dotting tools...
I'm currently waiting for some to arrive in the mail...
so these are done with a toothpick... 
and they're note the finest, but I like the colour combo.
What do you think?

I used my new BYS stoney colour (as the base) and BYS dark brown and Revlon Totally Toffee for the spots.

My versatile white T-shirt...

So this is the top I was wearing the other day, and I thought I'd have a little experiment of all the ways I can wear it...
There's actually a few...
And some look really smart under a jacket.
Pretty good for a t-shirt me thinks!

The sunshine is here


I am very happy...

MyLove and I have finally found a place to live! I can't wait to begin decorating!
And I'm going to see my FAVOURITE band Coldplay in two days!!!!
Then we're off to holiday in Sydney!

Agirlwithsomeclothes is very happy...

Yum in a mug...

So the other day I was rather hunger, craving something cakey and chocolatey... 
Thus came my decision to search for an easy to make cake...

And I stumbled across a beautiful self-saucing chocolate pudding in a mug...

It's very simple to make and tastes so good!

It did look a little concerning to start with, but the flavour totally outweighs the looks...

Ingredients: 
4 tbsp flour (I used self-raising) 
4 tbsp Sugar
2 tbsp Cocoa
1 egg
3 tbsp milk
3 tbsp oil
a dash of Vanilla Essence
3-4 tbsp chocolate chips
(I actually used chocolate buttons, which worked rather well, they were still a bit hard when I was eating the pudding... but delicious nonetheless)

So you begin by mixing the dry ingredients together (I mixed mine in a little plastic jug)
Then mix in the egg, milk, oil and vanilla essence, and add the chocolate chips.

I then poured the mixture into a reasonably sized mug (this could probably do two small servings)
and cook in the microwave for 2 minutes...

When done tip out into a bowl (it should slide out easily - well mine did!)
and add Ice-Cream, Cream or Yoghurt to serve.
Bon Appetit 


This is a picture of the mixture freshly poured into my mug...
Here is the finished product, freshly tipped into a bowl out of the mug...
Eating Time! 

Telletubbies!!!

Photobucket

Woah guys! 
how sad is it that I haven't posted these before! 
I found this photo on my phone, I had uploaded to instagram... 
but obviously forgot you lovely people.

I painted these because my brother is addicted to Telletubbies!

Red Silver Gradient...

Photobucket

Ok so as you can tell this photo is from the days of longer nails... 

It would have totally matched my outfit from yesterday!
(which actually wasn't that long ago...) 
Any way I wanted to try a glitter gradient... 
I think it worked alright...

a chic little red outfit...

Photobucket

One must always love a jacket that resembles Coco Channel's designs...

This was actually a pre-planned outfit to wear on a "looking around new flats" day...
I wanted to look well presented (like I could ALWAYS afford to pay the rent) and reliable...
I think I pulled that off in a young, chic woman kind of way... 

I really like this outfit! 

Jacket: Dotti
T-Shirt: Max (it's actually pretty old, and I was thinking of selling it/giving away... not any more!)
Skirt: Max
Tights: K-Mart (and they're holding up really well!)
Shoes: Wild Pair

Bitten and pink...

Photobucket

Ok,
So I know long ago I gave up biting my fingernails... And for a long time I stopped.

But the other day, for some of reason, I decided to bite and pick my nails... And now they're so short ::sad face::

But at least even short nails can look pretty with "bombshell" pink by Australis!

Good idea!

Thought I would be totally clever and colour code my make up brushes with nail polish...
What do you think? Good idea?

Funky pattern spotty nails!

Photobucket
So this is an OLD photo...
For some random reason I found a bunch of nail art designs I had not yet published on my blog...

As you can see this is from the time when my nails were short and bitten, and I had no real skill with dotting...

I believe the colours I could have used here are:
Ciate Jelly Bean (pink)
Elf (un-named) Teal Green
