'You're needed at The Golden Triangle Exhibition in Pestana Vila Sol Golf & Resort in Quarteira, Central Algarve' I was informed. 'We have not 1 but 2 dresses for you to wear from H & M - black for the Saturday, grey for Sunday'. *Eyes lit up*. My first thoughts turned to jewellery & shoes (bearing in mind we'd be standing for 9hrs!) *dread setting in*, and with that I ruled out the black peep toed Christian Louboutins, instead teaming the grey dress with a pair of brown Hugo Boss strappy sandals (gold fastener), and the black...well, let's just say I teamed it with a lesser known cream sandal from a shop on Dublin's Grafton Street called Korky's. In hindsight, my Gucci sandal would have been far more suitable. Earring made by Elise Wilkes (pic attached) available at La Dolce Vita (my fave boutique) in Almancil, smile...my own, entertainment, the stand and general 'craic' by Premier FX in Almancil (off the fashionista track I grant you, but up there on my 'fun people to work with' list). And they like me, are big fans of Apple products too!

Twice this week I have come across what can only be described as pure genius, and by that I refer to the 'matte black' french manicure. As a nail-techy with an eye for keeping things current, I plan to 'subject' (in the best possible way) some of my clients to this new wave of fabulosity. Feast your eyes at the image above. Soon to be available (along with Essie - my personal favorite nail brand) at Estrela Health & Beauty in Praia da Luz.
