On Saturday we went for a wee day out! I picked up some tickets to the etc magazine show from livingsocial, I just thought it might be something different. It is a home, garden, food and lifestyle show. So a little bit of everything. As you can imagine I went for the “lifestyle” section mainly – well the women’s zone anyway, plus I hoped I might see something inspirational for our wedding venue decoration.
We did take a picture at the end of our fun at the show – I didn’t notice until after there was a typo…such a muppet sometimes!

There were some chats going on an Linda Lusardi was doing a demo of her skin care line. I tried the day moisturiser and it felt fabulous, I think it’s not too overly expensive. Although I’m all sorted for skin care at the minute!
There were some wonderful stalls, although not as many as I would like. I did, unsurprisingly, find a candle stall. It was Copenhagen Candles I believe, unfortunately their website doesn’t sell their candles. I picked up a Large Vanilla & Sandalwood candle in a glass jar, I bought it for half price!

There were quite a few jewellery stalls, lots of kitsch items. I found it hard resisting lots of the lovely quirky things, I did give in and pick up a pair of earrings from Claudia Made This – you can see the gap in the photo where my earrings were! She was lovely and I would really recommend checking out her etsy shop. Lovely, cute items that are really reasonably priced. I even managed to talk her into being in a photo!

She was sharing a space with Cat A Cake, which has some lovely items too, but I was trying to be sensible and the lovely earrings from Claudia Made This won on the day. I would definitely recommend checking out Cat A Cake though, some fab bits.
Now on to nails, which for me was the most exciting bit! You may not be aware of this but I have a bit of a nail obsession…yep, its true.
MoyouNails sell nail stamping kits. The one in the picture is the Salon Suitcase, I went for one of the pro sets. It came with a plate, a scraper, a stamp and a corrector pen. I have more than enough polish, but I was sorely tempted to get the salon suitcase! Into the bargain I also got a free polish and 3 of the smaller plates. All for £60! The pro sets normally retail for £64.99, there are smaller sets available if you wanted to just dip your toe, or you can buy individual plate and polishes if you’d prefer.

I did get a few stamps tested on me before purchasing, I have to say the woman doing the selling was very good! Plus she was lovely! I do have a picture of her but I don’t think she was keen on having it taken, so I thought I’d leave it out!
Be warned I will be doing a review post on my purchase and I’ve no doubt the various nail designs I do will turn up on my instagram, so keep your eyes peeled!
Unfortunately I didn’t have any joy on the wedding decoration front. Better luck next time!
I will do a haul of some of the items I bought – I’ve done a wee bit of shopping recently, so it will be a collective affair!
