I am back from my mini-holiday to London to see the Chelsea Flower Show and other touristy things! I thought I would share some cool photos with you before I go off to cook pizza...
In order of appearance...
1) Peonies called 'Bowl of Beauty' from one of the stands in the Great Pavilion
2) House of Parliament and the Big Ben
3) 'Beefeater' outside the Crown Jewel Hall at Tower of London
4) Astonishing table and chairs by the British Florists' Association
5) Fairytale tree by the National Association of Flower Arrangers' Societies
Please enlarge the last two photos to see the full glory of the arrangements!
Chelsea Flower Show was amazing! And the weather was amazingly bad!! We had torrential rain and frequent thunder all through the day so we were lucky the Great Pavilion (which has a roof) was taking up most of the day anyway...

After coming home to the heartbreaking sight of my greenhouse in a million pieces and broken tomato plants, I was cheered up by Claire from Me To You Nails coming to do my Chelsea Flower Show green Shellac nails as seen on All Lacquered Up!
This is 2 coats of "Black Pool" with a coat of "Iced Coral". And it's AWESOME!! Just look at that teal glimmer! I can't wait to visit Chelsea Flower Show on Thursday, and I hope the storm winds and Grimsvotn volcano ash cloud keep themselves under control on Wednesday morning so I get to London!

I've not had a chance to explore the brand properly but apparently there is a little shop selling them from Australia called Picture Polish (they ship to the UK). Just look at those Multichromatics... 8-)

So it's consolation lilac nails instead. This is 2 costs "Lilac Bikini" (I just love the name) and Megashine top coat. Glides on like butter! :) It had a slight lilac shimmer as well which makes it shift colour in the light! Delicious! Even my Dad likes it!

Now for a quick snack so I'll last till the end of the final! :)
I've got naked nails as I had a crisis - I just couldn't decide on a colour I wanted :( I am planning on doing them tonight while watching the 'Eurovision Song Contest' Grand Final, but that depends on if I find a colour I want to paint them in???
Anyway, I made more soap today. This time it's mostly Facial Bars, but you can check out more about this on my new blog for all things crafty (and a bit magical) - Enchantments Express...
I will try and review the soaps later this week, hopefully they will be good :) I am also working on some facial lotions and lip balms but I will keep you updated on those. Now I will have to go and make some birthday cake!

This is 2 coats with Megashine top coat. Same buttery smooth, opaque formula as we have come to expect from Nails Inc! Gotta love it! This is actually not similar to any polish I own already which is a bonus :)

This is 2 coats with Sally Hansen Mega Shine top coat, its ok but I feel I should've put in 3rd coat? Never mind it will have to do for tomorrrow when I'm back after a whopping 5 days off in a row :)
Also can I review the Batiste dry shampoo in "Gold shimmer"? It smells exotic, really refreshes blonde hair and add a lovely subtle glimmer. Its a must have for those "rather have 5 more mins in bed instead off washing my hair" days! It also comes in a silver shiner and a mass of other fragrances, so everyone will find their ideal dry shampoo from Batiste :)
