You may have seen that I recently joined a Facebook group with challenges every other week.  The last prompt (and the first one I took part in) was 'Pink & Grey' and you can find my offering HERE.  The prompt this time around was 'Green & Purple' which are two colours I don't think I have ever put together before.  I was pleasantly surprised with how well they paired up.

Minty Green Leopard Print Nails

I was looking for a design to do on my nails, and while I was browsing the internet, I came across some lovely designs.  I was inspired for this mani by @Glittr (instagram) - her nails are fabulous!  I love leopard print nails as they are pretty quick and simple to do, and look effective.

I love photos.  I enjoy taking them, and I enjoy looking back at old photos as it helps bring back memories of times or events.  It has been a long time since I printed any off and I felt it was time to do so, so that I can put them on display in the real world, and not just online.

I have just received my order from Cheerz, and I am so happy with it!
