What does a weekend getaway, a manicurist and Jamie Oliver have in common? Answer: Summer. Now let me explain.
Thanks to the weekend getaway, three days of wall to wall sunshine invaded my life. And what’s one of the best beverages for a steamy sundowner? In my opinion – the fragrant, refreshing Mojito. I have them wherever I go and because of that consider myself a bit of a Mojito expert – but in the drinking of, rather than the making of. Mint was in the garden. As was the lime (really!!). Vodka was in the cupboard. Fizzy water in the fridge. And the recipe was in my phone thanks to Jamie Oliver drinks. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KWU9ZaWbeuQ
It was perfection in a glass. And whilst sipping, surrounded by scents from the garden, I espied in The Sunday Times Style magazine Beauty an article proclaiming that pale creamy and off-white nail shades are the perfect complement to a tan. Cue my Naughty Knickers and glitter shellac. Smug or what? Thank you Jodie from Enhance (@EnhanceBeautyGr / www.enhancebeautygrantham.com).
So, there you have it. A touch of simply summer.
