NAILSI used to be a lot more diligent about keeping my nails polished, however, it all fell by the wayside for a very long time until the recent Easter travels when I bought some Essie nail polish sets for my girls at Heathrow airport. This pink really appealed to me – but not the girls for some reason – so I put it on when we arrived and for the wedding after we returned home and reapplied once more after that!NAILS2Pink and green is a known combination for me here. I think it’s important for me to add a little colour as I get older and especially when wearing neutral colours so much. I used to spend hours on home manicures then went to the nail salon every so often but really prefer to do it myself. Luckily I favour the very, very low maintenance look 🙂 and it takes very little time to keep my nails healthy but was guilty of neglecting them all the same. So now I will try to maintain them regularly and wear pretty colours more often. As we grow older, personal grooming becomes more important, don’t you think? CARTIER I went to London this week to see a dear friend and help celebrate her new job and this was my outfit:  cashmere coat, patterned silk shirt, cashmere cardigan, jeans, leather brogues, silk mousseline scarf and the Lindy.SELFRIDGESIt was very cold when I set off from the suburbs in the early morning knowing that temperatures in the city would be a couple of degrees warmer. You have to accommodate that.BRUNCHWe enjoyed a light brunch and chocolate pudding together. PUDDING That really was a mushroom and flowers!MUSHROOM NAILS3And the other reason for my visit was to collect my lovely watch after it had been serviced including a long overdue polish! It was a wonderful experience as well.

Thanks for reading!

    The watch looks like it is brand new, lovely!
    I only recently polished my nails for the first time in years, it took a bit of adjustment to get used to seeing colour on my hands, but I decided I will make more of an effort to keep my nails manicured after years of neglect. Agreed, grooming because more apparent as we grow older.

      Thanks very much! I forgot to add it’s almost 11 years old and I wore it exclusively during that time and thought it was pretty beaten up when I presented it at Cartier. But the lady there told me it’s in very good condition for its age and never having been serviced before. I shudder to think what others do to their watches!
      That’s good, we’re all agreed to be better groomed from now on 🙂
