New Jewellery From Pink Sugar Store

I have a teeny bit of a jewellery buying problem. I cant help myself.  So when I heard my lovely blogger friend Lisa was setting up an online statement jewellery with her best ffriend Lorraine,  I was insanely excited. 

I ordered a vintage style chain with a bouquet of flowers for €15. I love vintagey necklaces and this was no exception.  When  I first saw the picture, it was love at first sight. On the day I ordered, there was a free gift with purchade. This turned out to be a really cute heart bangle. 

Lisa has nailed both her selection of pieces aswell as pretty packaging.  Delivery took two days which is great. Ive ordered from other Irish businesses in the past and have waited much longer. I think Pink Sugar store is a winner.II'll definitely be reordering.

The website is launching soon but in the meantime you can order off Twitter (@PinkSugarStore) and Facebook (PinkSugarSparkleStore)

Roger and Gallet Fleur d'Osmanthus Hand and Nail Cream

Fleur d'Osmanthus was the first ever Roger and Gallet fragrance I owned so the scent holds a special place in my heart. I then heard that they were using this gorgeous scent in their new range of 30ml hand creams. Happy days!

This hand cream has some very lovely ingredients including apricot kernal oil which helps moisturise dry skin brilliantly. The cream is a little thick so you only need a tiny amount. Best of all its not a greasy cream. Nothing worse than a greasy hand cream that sits on the top layer of your skin.

I love the tiny bottle so much, it's become my handbag hand cream, coming everywhere with me. I love my Cicaplast mains for helping my hands, but this lovely did as good a job when I used it everyday for two weeks.

The 30ml hand and nail creams come in Fleur d'Osmanthus, Bois d'Orange and Rose. all retail at €6.50 and are available at all Roger and Gallet stands now. Go on! Give one a try

StylFile Emergency File

Ever since I heard of Tom Pellereau's stylfile invention, I wanted one. The day finally came when I received an emergency style file at a blogger meetup. I was thrilled to find it hiding in the bag. Even thought I was delighted to have it, I only took it out of the packet this week.

The emergency stylfile recommended to have in your handbag for when your out and a nail breaks. It is a mini file that comes in a spiral case to protect it coming into contact with items and scrathing them. There is also a nail buffer and shiner on the opposit file of the file.

I really wanted to love this, but alas I was left feeling a bit meh! about it. Some of my nails are a bit short at the moment, not really short but short. I found trying to manouvre the file to do these nails really awkward.Even on longer nails I had a little bit of difficulty. The buffer and shiner were pretty decent. I think I would get on better with the original S File.

Have you tried any Stylfile products?
