New Sal Y Limon Bracelet

Prior to Christmas I treated myself to a new Sal Y Limon bracelet.

I had seen their new glitzy bracelets in a magazine and decided to take a look at them. 

Sal Y Limon, bracelet, red, diamontie

At the moment I'm really into my reds and burgundy's. I have a few tops and several nail polishes in similar colours, so I thought this bracelet would suit my current look.

Sal Y Limon, bracelet, red, sparkle

The red laquer of this design is covered in lots of red diamante which gives this bracelet real sparkle. I particularly like the gold underside and hinge of this bracelet. It looks really glam against the red. 

Do you have any of the Sal Y Limon bracelets?

L'Occitane - Radiance & Colour Care

L'Occitane has done it again, this time in the form of 
'Radiance and Colour Care' haircare range.

Shampoo, Conditioner, LOccitane
Radiance & Colour Care Mask
This haircare collection is designed with coloured hair in mind. Containing 5 essential oils, that all help leave your hair feeling beautifully nourished and healthy looking.

The five essential oils are:

BERGAMOT: invigorates,
CEDAR: energises,
GERANIUM: regenerates,
PALMAROSA: boots microcirculation,  
ROSEMARY: stimulates the scalp.

L'Occitane Radiance and Colour, Shampoo, Conditioner
Radiance & Colour Care Shampoo + Conditioner.
I have been using the products in this collection over the last month, and can say they are very good. Simply shampoo and condition as normal, and then perhaps once or twice per week replace the conditionner with the Mask instead (for a rich treatment). 
You don't need alot of product (I have found L'Occitane to be very concentrated). The fragrance is divine - obviously due to the essential oils! And my hair has looked and felt fabulous.....seriously impressed (can you tell!!!)

You can find the full range of products on the L'Occitane website and most stores.

Shampoo - 250ml £14 / 500ml £28
Conditioner - 250ml £14 / 500ml £28
Mask - 250ml £20

FREE from SLS (Sodium Laureth Sulfate)

IsaDora Eyeshadow Trio

Here is another of my goodies sent from IsaDora Cosmetics
This one is the Eye Shadow Trio in 80 Precious Pearls. 

Every Eye Shadow Trio comes with a double-ended sponge applicator and a handy mirror inside the packaging. Precious Pearls is a beautiful mix of pearlescent eyeshadows; each is packed with shimmer. 

I used all three colours in this palette to create a soft smoky eye. 
Applying the darkest shade on the outer corner and below the lash line helps widen the eye. 
Finished off with lashings of mascara.

This would be perfect as an evening look, maybe with a set of false lashes for a more dramatic effect.

Anyone remember this?

Those of you who are around my age will remember the Topsy Tail. Everyone at school wore their hair this way and we were so cool! 

After some searching on the internet I found you could still buy the hair tool. Below is the very item....

You can do the 'Topsy Tail' without the tool by simply putting your hair into a loose ponytail. Make a hole in your hair just above the hairband. Now push your ponytail through the hole you have it made.

How easy is that!

A quick alternative to the classic ponytail.

FURY's Kari Platform Sandal

 I'm sure if you're like me you have a wardrobe full of shoes. 
My moto is you can never have too many!

I heard about these beauties in a press release. Although these aren't your every day shoe, they are just too gorgeous to not share!

Described as "Dangerously daring and sexy*", these platform sandals feature FURY's "iconic*" arrow shaped zip and metal detailing around the ankle and sole.

These sky scrapers have a 1 inch platform colour-coded to the rest of the shoe. Plus a super high 5 inch heel which is matte black. 

My favourite colour from the Kari Collection is the grey one (pictured above & below). I love the copper metal details and the light stitching.....Simply divine!

Available in 3 colours;
Black, Grey and Khaki Green

Valentines Outfit

With Valentine's Day around the corner, I thought I'd do a quick outift post for you all.

For Mr KME and I its hard to have a night out, we have Little Miss (now 2) and no family in Switzerland. This year it falls on a working day so we will meet up for lunch, hence why this outfit features jeans. I would normally dress these up a little with a lacy top and some nice accessories.

Valentines Outfit

The items featured are from the following online stores;
Top - Zara
Jeans - Diesel 
Boots - Mango
Bag - Louis Vuitton
Bracelets - ASOS

Happy Valentines to you all

Winter Wonderland

Its snowing again here in Zurich. 
This means one thing, its time to stay at home in the warm!

Today's nails are inspired by the wintery snow and the sparkling icicles......

I have used my new Essence Glitter Topper. This is from their latest colour collection called 'Hugs & Kisses'. The glitter I chose is called 'More Than Words', which I would describe as a pink/peach confetti containing a fine aqua glitter. If you follow me on Instagram (link) you will have seen a picture of this a couple of weeks ago :)

I used OPI 'My Very First Knockwurst'* as my base colour (a pinky nude tone), then put the Essence Glitter Topper on my ring finger as an accent.

I think these two colours compliment each other perfectly.

What colour are you wearing today?

*Clarks Liberty Art Fabric Preview

Hot off the press.....
.....Clarks Shoes collaborates with Liberty Art Fabric!

"*Liberty Art Fabrics are famous for their vintage and floral designs. This new collaboration gives 'vintage' a modern twist.

Minorca Bay bag {LINK}

'Minorca Bay' bag
This beautiful barrel shaped bag features the stunning 'Liberty Art Fabric'. Combined with tan leather handles and detailing, I think this bag is certainly one that will stand out from the crowd. Those long handles make it comfortable to wear on your shoulder, and it also has two internal pockets; one designed as security pocket, and the other designed to fit a smartphone.

Chorus Voice shoe {link}
'Chorus Voice' shoes
Gorgeous nubuck leather shoes, embossed as snakeskin...what more can a girl ask for? 
Details like the sweetheart top line add a vintage touch to this classic shape. These shoes also feature a hidden platform in the sole, which together with the mid-height heel makes them perfect for everyday wear.     

Available in 3 colours:
Black Snake (pictured)
Heather Suede
Orange Suede

Chorus Sing shoe {LINK}
'Chorus Sing' shoes
Now, if you're going to own just one pair of nude shoes this year, these have to be on your short list!
These elegant peep-toe's are finished in nude patent leather, and have been lined with 'Liberty Art Fabric'. They also feature the hidden platform and mid-height heel.

Available in 2 colours:
Nude Patent (pictured)
Navy Suede

I think this collection is perfect for work or a special occassion,
