A Daisy Haze

Yesterday I attended a graduation, it was such a wonderful day. I missed my own graduation so it was good to experience it through someone else, and without the pressure. The graduates all looked so smart in their gowns and a good day was had by all. The ceremony and speeches were very inspiring and you could see the expressions of pride from the attending parents and families. It was great to be part of such a lovely day, and the beautiful weather made it even more so. There was a great atmosphere, busy with graduates and families chatting and taking photographs in the sunshine.

The day before, I treated myself and had my nails done. I am not very good at nail art, so I sat back and relaxed while the expert took over. I just wanted something simple,so I chose a subtle pink polish. The design consisted of four white dots close together. There is a hint of yellow polish on the 'petals' and a silver glittery centre. I was very pleased with the end result. I feel like it is something I might be able to replicate, as the girl made it look easy. However, I do not have much success when painting any sort of detail onto my nails. It usually ends up all untidy and smudged!! I wish I had taken a picture of the nail polishes used, but when I go back for another design I will make sure I do. I'm always admiring other bloggers and their nail art posts, so it's nice to be able to share this picture.

I hope you like the jewellery I have chosen to compliment my nails, below. The weather has inspired me to pick some summery designs. I love daisy prints at the moment and I could easily make a long wishlist of daisy themed clothing and items that have caught my eye. Especially the Motel Penny Smock,however I'm never sure what size to buy with Motel. The silver rings and necklace, below, are all so pretty and dainty

The above picture, is the necklace I wore to the graduation. I have a number of spiked necklaces, and this one is from River Island. The store has a great collection of jewellery and a range that is so reasonably priced. I curled the ends of my hair in the morning, however the curls soon fell out,leaving me with slightly waved hair. I used my Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray to add some texture. I think next time I will aim to have more volume. Are there any products you can recommend for this?

I hope you have enjoyed reading my post. What have you been doing this sunny weekend?
