A surprise spa day!

I was amazed when I won a Spa day on twitter with Beko and even more excited when I got the details.

It was basically the use of the spa at the K West Hotel and Spa, and a treatment, there was so many from massages, manicures etc.

So first decision who to take, well its my usual week day prize partner, my friend Jo, she works from home so always available last-minute for any wins or trips to be taken during the week. Next was what treatment, we chose a top price pedicure.

But that was not it, we got to have a lunch with Kirsty Gallacher.

First we got there and had our pedicure, it was brilliant, and we even got to keep the colour of nail varnish we chose. The off to our lunch, well it was more like dinner, 3 courses and I sat next to Kirsty, woop. I had to promise Jo I wouldnt take photos of the food, boo We had choices from

• Stilton & walnut salad with pear, chicory & honey lemon dressing (V)
• Grilled asparagus, poached duck egg & hollandaise Air dried ham, fig, and rocket & shaved pecorino
• Smoked salmon, beetroots, horseradish cream, rocket & lemon


• Risotto with peas, broad beans, sun dry tomato & shaved parmesan
• Roast duck breast, jersey royal potato, spinach & rosemary Jus
• Grilled salmon, fennel, roasted baby tomato, green beans & olive dressing


• Chocolate Brownie with ice cream
• Apple pie with vanilla ice cream
• Cheese platter, oat biscuits and red onion chutney

Jo had – Stilton & walnut salad, Grilled Salmon and Choc Brownie, me I chose Smoked salmon, Risotto and choc brownie. Also we had 2 glasses of rose wine with lunch, so you can imagine we was very happy.

After lunch we had to have piccys done for the website etc, I looked awful but Kirsty was immaculate as usual.

So pics all done, it was time to hit the spa, by this time it was 5pm, so we didnt stay in too long, well long enough to try all the indvidual rooms, steam, snow, sauna etc. Then we relaxed in the hydrotherapy pool. Then we decided to make a move and start our journey home, it was 6.30pm after all with a 90 mins journey!

But we couldnt resist popping in the pub on the way home for a sneaky barcardi and coke, well all this relaxing was hard work, lol

We had a great day, and always have a giggle with Jo x

A SparklingJewellery win

I was amazed when I heard I had won a competition on Twitter, even more surprised when the prize came through. It was from @SparklingRings on twitter   it was a very generous and lots of different pieces.

3 sets of great dress earrings, I thought they looked heavy but quite the opposite, kept them in all evening and great for nights out.

This is one of my favourite items, a black Shamballa bracelet, its very comfortable and goes with anything, I wear it almost every day and have had quite a few comments about it.

I wore this ring to match the bracelet on a night out, I was worried that it wouldnt fit my finger but was perfect.

I love these set of 3 dress rings, I wore them on nights outs lately and finished my outfit nicely.

I have to say these earrings are very classy and love them.

Last was the what I think is her signature necklaces, the twin coin in both gold and silver finish. I think these are unusual, great for every occasion.

Looking at her website, there are lots of great items, would recommend them for great items and prompt delivery.


So 2 friends are known nail biters! They wanted a challenge to encourage them to improve their nails. So my challenge was one month, then they had to send a picture of their nails. The winner would get a prize. So I thought I would make it interesting and ask everyone to chose.

So Nail Biter A
