Barry M Coconut Infusion - Bikini




I was intrigued by Barry M's new Coconut Infusion line of nail polishes, but wasn't sure if they were anything special... after waiting for a bit, I decided I'd try them out, so I took advantage of a Boots 2 for £7 offer (normal price £4.99 each) and purchased Bikini (minty green) & Starfish (nude).

Aussie Daft!

If you don't already know, I am a huge fan of Formula One.  I have watched it for as long as I can remember, back in the days where there were races on TV at 3am in the morning.

Back then, the driver I was cheering on was David Coulthard - he comes from the same region as me!  Fast forward to 2007 and as well as cheering for DC, I couldn't help but also root for DC's teammate Mark Webber - another intelligent driver and nice guy.  Following on from Webber's retirement, his replacement at Red Bull in 2014 was another Aussie, Daniel Ricciardo.  It is hard not to warm to Ricciardo, as he is one of the smiliest and most genuine drivers on the grid - he is also a very talented racing driver, producing some wonderful overtakes, and completely outshining reigning champion Sebastian Vettel in his first season with Red Bull.

What a squad!

Threave Castle


 
Last week, I took a little trip down to Threave Castle.  Although (at the time of writing) it is still currently closed due to flood damage, it was a lovely walk down to the bank of the river (where you can usually get the boat across to the island on which the castle is situated).




Not too far from where you would normally take the boat across to the castle, there is an Osprey viewing platform.  Although there were 4 chicks in the nest, I only saw the female osprey, but I was still pleased seeing the one as it was my first osprey encounter.
