The Body Shop Hemp Hand Oil Review
My hands suffer badly from the cold and become cracked and uncomfortable so I bought this on one of my Body Shop hauls. The bottle advises that you rub several drops into hands and nails for 24 hour hydration. I found I actually needed a bit more than this to sufficiently cover my hands but the bottle should still last a while.
It smells slightly odd, the same as the rest of the hemp range but not too unpleasant. I didn’t really find that it made much of a difference to my hands. Perhaps it offered slight relief when my hands were feeling particularly dry and its quite nice to use as a cuticle oil however i’ve not noticed any real improvement in my dry skin since using this so I won’t be repurchasing it.
The oil is avaiable instore and online for £7
Not going to lie - I’m very excited about this one. I love Sarah Burton (admittedly perhaps not as much as Pippa Middleton loves her right now but still)
1) High necklines - again as I mentioned in the Alberta Ferretti collection. Good for keeping out the drafts no?
2) Lacing. Not just on shoes but also on dresses. The coolest way to do up your clothes!
3) Midi skirts. I cannot tell you how happy I am that fall seems to be lending itself to warmer more sensible trends such as below the knee skirts and high necklines. At the rate I’m not even going to have to break out the 300 denier tights! (I also love the little leather leggings which have been put under some of the shorter skirts)
I will also be adding the rest of my favourite looks to my post queue so they should be appearing at regular intervals throughout the rest of the day.

I finally got round to doing this after all those catwalk review blogs. So here are the key trends for Autumn/ Winter 2010 and my pick of the best catwalk looks.
1) Camel (remember I mentioned this the other day?) Pretty much anything
that’s camel coloured will go down well this season!

2) Brocade. There was a lot of it on the catwalks but it may be harder to locate on the High Street.
3)Trousers. Yes, they’re back. Most prominently these gorgeous loose flared extra long trousers.
4) Feminine. Anything ladylike, think beautiful filmstar.
5) Utility, sort of boyfriend military style.

and there you have it, why not try them all? (…just not all at once)
I have to admit as much as I’m dreading Winter I am already getting a little bored of my summer nails palette and looking forwards to moving into some more sultry tones for Winter. From October onwards I’ll start off with soft mushroomy colors like this-
(mushroom by Barry M)
I also want a nude because that’s the colour for winter but it seems as though I’m going to have to stray away from my usual brand. I was thinking of trying L’Oreal? Anyone know if its any good?

From November through December i’m going more festive with Bright Red, Silver and Emerald Green. (Not forgetting of course my red and green glitters!)
I’ll be using my favourite colours come January February time because those are my least favourite months so I’ll need something to get me through them.
Grey and Raspberry
The moving onto something a little more summery and we’ll be back into pastels and pinks before you know it!
Its just my fun little way of making winter go that little bit quicker :) Feel free to share your colour schemes! <3
I was thinking of setting up a blog especially for my nails so I can show you what the colours look like on an review how different ones paint and stuff. Would anyone be interested? Let me know :)
