Baby Girl Nail Art and some new scented candles :-)

Well this week has been very special for our family! Earlier this week I became an Aunty to a gorgeous baby girl. So of course I had to do some baby inspired nail art!

The perfect baby pink is of course OPI Mod About You so all I had to do was draw some cute baby things :-) Erm I must admit I don't know a lot about baby things but google sorted that one out!

So pinky to thumb we have a baby rattle, a block with the letter E, a toy duck, a pacifier and a bottle! Honestly this OPI colour is a must have for any nail polish collection. It is that gorgeous. Even if it does require a few coats :-P

Latest scented candles! I know I always post the unattainable Bath & Body Works candles so I thought I'd share another brand I've come to really enjoy and that's Glasshouse Fragrances. We first came across them in Peter Alexander because this potent Vanilla scent would always be wafting out the store. One thing about these candles is that they are *super* strong. We first had a small candle and it would fill an entire room for hours after burning. The large candles cover an even bigger space. So you have to make sure you love the scent because it will be strong! We picked up Montego Bay (Coconut & Lime) and Bora Bora (Cilantro and Orange Zest).

So as you can see they have a snuffer with the lid which is well sealed and won't fall off easily. I'm not too sure about the reuse-ability of the glass because it gets so smoked out from burning the candle! Haven't tried washing it though :-P I like Bora Bora the best because it smells so fresh.

Above is Montego Bay. Not the biggest coconut fan but it's not too overpowering. It's nice to find something Australian and easy available for once. WELL. If you live near a David Jones which is probably limited to the capitals :-| But as I said earlier, they sell them in other stores such as Peter Alexander and there is a store locator on the website for other small boutique type shops that stock them.

That's all from me for now, I have been so busy lately that I haven't had a chance to do much housework :-P So better get to it before it's Monday again :-( Hope everyone had a great weekend and I'll see you next time!


  1. Naw that is such a cute mani! Congratulations :) I have the vanilla caramel scented candle, Tahaa, from that range and I haven't even had to light it the scent's so strong when the lid's left off!!

  2. Congratulations on becoming an Aunty! :)

  3. Aw that is SO cute! Congrats! :)

    I esp love the duck

  4. Thanks everyone! I finally got to go baby clothes shopping today and it was a lot of fun :-D

    @Cincly I agree with the candles - they are a good investment because you rarely have to burn them!
