Dark Lava & A Well Spent Holiday

An image packed post, it was hard to decide which ones made the cut...

I was back at work today after a great 10days off and celebrating my birthday.  I love the kind of holidays where you get so much done and your not lazing around everyday, we went on a trip, I had a mashoosive clear our AND made some money out of it, I finally bought the vanity dressing table I have been eyeing for about 3years and developed an obsession with Chai Tea, as I sip away on one right this second.
The past weeks holiday felt like forever but in a good way and as we went to stay with Marks brother and his lovely girlfriend for a few days down in Ipswich I obviously needed a fresh new set of Shellac. Kristy (smug pug) and Mikey were great tour guides, they had our few days that we were with them all planned out which was great meaning me and Mark had no worries, we just got up got dressed and we were away for most of the day. We took a drive through their beautiful little towns and popped into cute quirky shops, Norwich, Cambridge and Aldeburgh beach which had thee tiniest little house I have every seen, oh and the 'House in the Clouds'. I was in desperate need of a holiday as I was getting fed up with work, the horrible weather and wakening up to the same things everyday so our trip away couldn't have come at a better time.  We both had such a great time away and we were lucky that the weather was on our side for most, meaning I managed to get pretty good pics:)

It was also really nice to spend quality time with Mark as we don't get many full days together due to our working schedules. We had some amazing hot chocolates at 'JellyHill' in the Westend of Glasgow, we had some lunch dates and lets not forget shopping, my favourite pass time ooO and we popped along to the 'New Mini Launch Event' as Mark is treating himself.

My nails this week are very simple. I've kept them very plain with just 2 coats of 'Dark Lava', a very popular rich, deep brown with a  red shimmer tone, which I thought would look classy and still match my chosen outfits for London. to finish off, you know me never without a bit of sparkle so I covered my two pinkies in a brown/gold holographic glitter, nothing too crazy but still Claire.

Productive, eventful holidays are great if only I could have more of them and we can't wait to visit Kristy, Mikey and of course their fab little house bunny Biffy in their new flat.
