Leighton Denny // Nail Elixir

You can't beat nicely painted nails.
Getting them done at the nail salon or doing them yourself at home it gives you that instant pick me up!

Being a mum of four I don't often get a spare moment to pop out to get my nails done, so I often do mine myself.

I was recently sent a some nail goodies from Leighton Denny

and a new polish Viva La Diva.

Normally when I do my nails, I just do them quickly and bypass buffing and undercoats, so it was nice to take the time to actually do it properly.

I cleaned away the chipped varnish that I had on my nails and then buffed them up with the buffer and they came up super shiny.
I nearly left them at that, but was pretty excited about trying out the new Nail Elixir.

Nail Elixir 

A new nail treatment for ridged, ageing nails that lack moisture and smoothness.

Secret ingredients ...

Collagen - helps promote youthful and healthy looking nails.
 Chrono-peptide - strengthens, hydrates and protects.
 Lime-tree extract and citric acid - whitening

How the Experts do it -

Brush two thin layers onto clean, dry nails, and repeat bi-weekly to build up treatment for increased results. 
It can also act as a base for applying colour, and will continue to treat nails during polish wear.

I was very impressed even after I had applied the first coat.
My nails looked 10x healthier and I loved the shine that came off them.

I've been using it as the Leighton Denny experts have suggested and I'm ridiculously in love with the results.

As well as the elixir I have been using this gorgeous Viva La Diva colour,
It's just perfect for summer and instantly brightens up my day when I look down at my nails.
The first time I used it I had a few mums at school point them out and say how much they liked them!

The experts recommend two coats, but I have only been using the one coat and it still gives off an amazing result.

Leighton Denny have a beautiful range of nail varnishes, you can check them out here.
All are very reasonably priced and you're sure to have salon looking nails at the end of your DIY manicure.

Review || Wilkinson Sword Intuition Ultra Moisture

So its my cousins wedding this weekend and I'm having to make my legs suitable for public viewing! Usually my legs are hidden and the only leg skin that see the light of day are the bits that peak out behind the holes in my jeans.

I don't tend to get my legs out but when I do, I do like them to look good!
I'm pretty lazy when it comes to shaving my legs, and I will let them grow rather wildly if I have no reason to show them off! Obviously something Jon loves hates with a passion!
I was very kindly sent Wilkinson Sword Intuition Ultra Moisture , to try! The fact its an all in one really appealed to me, because.... I am..... a lazy shaver!

Potty Training Academy // Sticker Chart.

Ru has taken to potty training like a pro! He's had hardly any accidents and is no longer using nappies during the day.

I started him off in Bambino Mio training pants but after a day of a couple accidents he started taking himself to the toilet without any prompt from me.

I introduced him to his Potty Training Academy sticker chart on day one and he was very keen to fill it up, so even when he didn't need the loo, he would try and squeeze something out just to get a sticker.

We used both a toddler loo seat and the carry me potty, but he prefers to do his wee's just like his brothers...standing up. He sings putting out the fiiiire when he's weeing (god knows where he got that from! lol.) 

The first real test was sending him to nursery and seeing if he returned with a bag full of wet pants. I made sure the washing machine was free for his return but when he came home wearing the same outfit that he went in in was such a win.

The sticker chart was a great help with gett…
