Things We Love - Glitter Nails BYS Glitter Kits

What a lovely surpise in my inbox today! BYS has a great little glitter nail kit that we simply must try!! In the past I've used enamel with the glitter in it. My favorite one is actually from BYS, it's clear with silver glitter and it's by far one of the better ones I've used. I often get people asking if I'm in fact wearing nail stickers because the effect is so good. It does however take quite a few coats to get the effect I like and I'm quite impatient so this new little kit looks just perfect for me.

The steps look to be very easy and the colors are great! I think the main reason it's all so simple is because the enamel color matches the glitter so perfectly, hard to go wrong, right? :) My faves are "magic slippers" and "tiffany twinkle".  Individual packs retail at $7.95 you can purchase them online at or try your local chemist / BYS reseller.

They also have a great little Youtube tutorial that shows just how easy the process is.

I can't wait to get my hot little hands on one of these packs. At $7.95 I think it's a steal and I hope it delivers as well as I'm hoping. If you've already tried the packs drop us a line and let us know your thoughts!

Things We Love - Quick and Easy Icey Treats

Melbourne is in a heat wave and we don't know what to do with ourselves :( In an effort to take my mind off the fact that I feel like a chicken roasting here are some delicious and pretty healthy icey treats you can make at home!

Natural healthy mag has some interesting and healthy recipes for home made icey poles. My fave is definitely the Berry Breeze!!

You will need:
  • 250g fresh berries
  • 1-2 tbs of sweetener, or to taste
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 4 tbs water or fruit juice
Method: Add berries, sweetener and lemon juice to a food processor. Blend until combined, leaving a few chunks of berry for texture. Freeze till frozen - usually around 4 - 6 hours.
If you're up for something that will really impress why not try these super dooper watermelon pops! It only takes a handful of ingredients (you can leave off the lime sherbert rind if you prefer). Check out the details at Eat Yourself Skinny
You will need:
  • 5 cups seedless watermelon pulp
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips (for the seeds)
  • 1 pint lime sherbet, softened (for the rind)
Here's to keeping cool!
