What a fabulous surprise it was to come into work last week to be greeted by the OPI team saying “would you like us to do your nails?” I so rarely get the chance to go and get a professional manicure that I sprang at the opportunity… PLUS it was with tea and cakes, so it would be plain rude not to!
Little did I know the surprise in store for me. As a huge fan of Alice in Wonderland, I was delighted to see that OPI have teamed up with the launch of the latest movie “Alice Through The Looking Glass” and done a truly fantastic collection of nail colours.
Unlike my usual choices, I went for the gorgeous powder blue. I love the idea of blue nails and yet whenever I put them on, within minutes I regret it ….but there’s just something fantastical about this shade and I have to say, I’m glad I stuck with it as six days later it’s still going strong and I’m loving it!
I have always loved having a bit of Alice here and there in my life, there’s something utterly wonderful about it, magical, quirky and downright odd – it makes me think a lot and smile a lot and I’m sure has had quite an influence in my DNA along the way! I’ve had this bottle of wine for years … no one is allowed to drink it, despite what it says on the label!
And who remembers Cardew teapots at QVC? I think we had them about 12/13 years ago and I’ve treasured this set since then. I have 4 cups and saucers don’t worry so if you drop in for a cuppa we will be fine… the sugar pot is knocking around somewhere too, as the Mad Hatter said “it’s always tea time…”
The OPI set is a limited edition at an amazing price and comes in a fab box so grab it while you can!!
In the meantime, I’ll leave you with two of my favourite quotes from Alice, I love them all, but these ones in particular ….
Alice: “Have I gone MAD?”
Mad Hatter “I’m afraid so, You’re entirely BONKERS.
But I’ll tell you a secret …
ALL THE BEST PEOPLE ARE!”
And I’ll leave you with this to chew on…
Alice: “This is impossible”
Mad Hatter: “Only if you believe it is”
Enjoy your tea …
PS I need to give you one more, this time from the Cheshire Cat “If you don’t know where you’re going, any road will get you there”
…just fantastic stuff
