I’m expecting a little PINK bundle of joy in May 2016!

Very excited. Very tired.

I have a feeling this little one is coming earlier than her due date but we shall see. I’ve kept it VERY hush-hush for a little while now but finally I am ready to come out and announce the news. Hopefully, it’ll also mean more regular posting but I will see how it goes because I’ve been simply exhausted since the start of the pregnancy.

I thought it’d be nice to share some lovely news with my lovely readers to end the first month of 2016. 🙂

Weekly Photo Challenge: Ornate

WPC Banner

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Ornate.”

This week’s photo challenge has to be dedicated to the wonderful Legoland Miniland!

Miniland was created using around 40 MILLION lego pieces – how impressive is that? Well, it may not sound all that impressive but I can tell you that seeing it in person was absolutely gob-smackingly good… and to top it off, the trains, buses, boats and cars were fully mobile which was amazing to see.

These photos don’t do much justice but just imagine how small a lego piece is and then imagine creating a building out of it – really impressive! We were so into Miniland that we actually didn’t see much else of the park but we didn’t mind to be honest.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Careful

Weekly Photo Challenge: Careful

This was on a sunny Saturday in Covent Garden. We were on our way to the London Transport Museum and made a quick stop at the Covent Garden Piazzo to see what all the commotion was. It was a man on a unicycle and we had come at the moment where he asked the audience for a volunteer. A young girl took up the challenge – she had to throw three juggling batons for the man to catch. If she was able to throw them to him successfully, she would win £5… which she did! 🙂

The man was careful enough to not drop any batons and the girl was cheered on greatly by the audience. It was an awesome day and so fun to watch!

I love a good sunset and nothing beats the view from my balcony. I thought this photo would make a lovely submission for this week’s WPC, change. I love the colours in the sky as it changes from day to night… it’s beautiful. I took the photos from my iPhone so please excuse the grainy image but I hope you can still appreciate the stunning sunset. You can also see The O2 all lit up ready for the night’s entertainment in the second photo. :).

#ManicureMonday

The Greenwich Mummy | Manicure Mondays

Polish:
Gold – H&M nail polish in ‘The One’
Black – L.A. Colors nail polish in ‘Black Velvet’

Colour:
Black and Gold

Rating:
4/5

Price:
£2.99 each

Ease of application:
Easy/Medium

Drying time:
15mins touch-dry, 30mins fully dry

Why I like it:
This is a new technique that I love to do. It’s called a crescent moon design as the base colour (gold) peeps through the nails which I’ve made it contrast against the dark black polish. It’s a twist on the traditional french tips technique. It’s easy to do, just a little bit fiddly to get the crescent moon (smile line) nice and neat.
