Today's the Shindig

I didn't think I'd have time to post this weekend...but here I am at 6am posting.
I have a tendency to wake early when I'm nervous, worried or excited. Today I'm nervous. 

Today I will be the centre of attention. Not a place I like to be! 
Mum is having an afternoon tea to celebrate my wedding, I guess most people would call it a Bridal Shower or a Kitchen Tea...but to be honest we avoided naming it and just invited everyone to afternoon tea. I didn't want to use a term that implied presents. I just want a nice afternoon of girlishness and delicious food.
There are 24ish people coming. Ranging from family members, including brothers partners, to old family friends, to work mates. My best friend and bridesmaid isn't able to come as she lives in Christchurch and my other friends from school are either not in the country or about to pop! Well one is due to have her baby girl next week. 

I guess I better show off some gorgeous polish! Today I wanted to show off Essie Shindig, in honour of the Shindig today... I have shown Shindig before, but these are much better pictures!

Essie Shindig

Playing with colour flitter on my new :)


  1. I hope you'll be having a great day with your family and friends! :) I don't like being the centre of attention either, it wakes me up early too, LOL!

    I love this colour, it reminds me of Come To Poppy from OPIs new flower collection, but I have no idea if they're close as I don't have either.

  2. Perfect colour for a day like today. I get all nervous as well when it comes to having to be the centre of attention *eurgh* Hope it goes well though, I'm sure you'll have a blast. ;)

  3. The color is really pretty! Just relax and have a great day! I hope by the end of the day the afternoon tea worked out great and you had fun!(:

  4. I'm glad I'm not the only one! I told mum to cancel the wedding a couple of weeks ago. We got the order of service and it said 'brides entrance'. Those two little words totally freaked me out. She didn't seem to think that was a good reason to cancel the wedding though.

  5. this mani is really flattering with your skin tone(:

  6. Yeey! Have a nice Bridal Shower! ;) Create yourself some great memories to last you a life time! And I'm sure you'll get some presents! ;)
    Do you enjoy giving? Well, I think you friends enjoy it too ;) So.. yeeeey!!!!! :D

    And what a beautiful colour!;) I didn't know this shade ;)

    Hugs and have fuuun !;)
