What Digital Camera?

My current digital camera has become obselete and I am in desperate need of a new one, however I am practically clueless when it comes to electricals and the specifications. I would be grateful if you guys could reccomend any really good digital cameras. My current camera is a Sony Cybershot which I didn't really like, I have previously had a Canon digital camera and I am thinking of maybe getting another Canon....

All suggestions would be appreciated x

Light as Air - China Glaze

Today's nail colour is Light As Air by China Glaze compliments of the lovely Marilou at My Pecious Nail Polish. To my suprise I came home to find a package on my bed a few weeks ago and inside was this lovely polish which she had sent me *smiley face*. (Check out her blog, especially if you are a nail polish addict).

Whilst wearing this nail polish I can't help but think about spring as its a lovely lilac pastel colour which I always associate with spring. Hopefully, if I keep wearing "Spring/Summer" colours on my nails it might come around quicker instead of the little teaser we are getting with the sunny one minute and cloudy the next weather we keep having.

Gold Watch Update

I totally forgot to mention that I ended up taking back the Gold Michael Kors watch I posted about before and bought a watch that I have had my eyes on for ages and I have been lusting after too. I bought the Gc (Guess Collection) Diver Chic Gold Chronograph watch.

I bought this watch from the Gc boutique in Westfield, which I always end up and love going into. They have so many other gorgeous watches in there that I want but some are ridiculously expensive considering I'm not really into wearing watches all the time.

Tea Tree & The Body Shop

A few weeks ago Groupon had a deal on where you pay £12 for a £30 voucher to spend at The Body Shop, so being the 'cheapie' I can be at times I snapped that up quickly. I have been having so many issues with my skin at the moment so I used this voucher as an opportunity to stock up on some tea tree products which I like to use for treating spots/blemishes.

The Body Shop - Tea Tree Toner
The Body Shop - Blemish Fade Night time Lotion
Dr. Organic - Tea Tree Pure Oil

I have quite a large range of tea tree items from The Body Shop that I use regularly but I have never tried the above first two products before so this was a great chance to. I always pick up tea tree oil from The Body Shop but decided to try the Dr Organic one instead from Holland & Barrett. Tea tree oil is a staple facial product of mine and I always put it directly on my spots which helps to reduce them. The Dr Organic tea tree oil is definitely much stronger than the Body Shop version I buy so I only put it where it is required but I prefer it to be stronger. I do find that tea products can be slightly drying to my sensitive skin so I picked a sample of The Body Shop Vitamin E Night Cream and after only using it for a week I will definitely be going back to purchase the full size product. It is very moisturising to the skin without being too oily and is great when combined with all the tea tree products I am currently using on my skin at night.

The Body Shop - Coconut Body Butter
The Body Shop - Sweet Lemon Body Scrub

I also picked up a body butter and a body scrub with the voucher. I have  never tried these items before but after smelling every scent they had in the range I was instantly drawn to the coconut butter and the lemon scrub. The body butter is moisturising without being to greasy or leaving a residue on the skin with a coconut scent that lasts even after being applied to the skin. The body scrub is also very moisturising and is not too harsh on the skin and the lemon scent is very 'lemony' and instantly makes me want to smell the scrub all day long. However, I do find that the scrub is a little greasy for my liking but saying this I have only used it once.

MAC Media Lipstick

I have been looking for a dark red lipstick colour for a while, as I have Rebel by MAC but it is more on the berry/purple side so after Media was recommended to me I made sure I tried it when I next visited MAC and I really liked it. Media is a satin finish lipstick which kind of has a matte finish but also with a slight bit of moisture/sheen to it. I would describe Media as a rich/deep red wine colour and after seeing swatches of it online it does seem to go well with most skin tones.

When wearing this lipstick colour I think its best to keep all other make up to a minimum as it is a bold colour. What do you guys think? How would you wear this lipstick?

Models Own - Baby Blues

A recent nail colour I have been wearing is Baby Blues by Models Own, it is a baby/powder blue shade. Despite the fact that I am not really one to keep up with nail trends I do think that this is a nice shade for spring and the colour also looks good on all skin tones. To achieve this look I used two coats and a top coat.
