Glossybox Unboxing and Review

Now, I’m an all of nothing kind of person, if I like something I really like it and if I hate it, it’s dead to me. So when I decided to try beauty subscription boxes, I went a bit mad and tried loads. I recently wrote a post about Birchbox, which I really loved. But, because […]

Birchbox Unboxing

I’m the worst beauty blogger in the world, I cannot believe that I have gone this long without subscribing to a beauty box! I’d heard about them, but always thought they seemed pointless. But I’d read a few ‘unboxing’ posts on other blog so thought I’d try them. The first one that I decided to […]

How to Survive The Summer Holidays With a Toddler

I’m guessing you’ve all heard the term ‘threenager’ ? Sums up my nearly 3 year old perfectly. Toddlers are hard. There’s a reason why I’m writing this at 9:30pm with a well deserved glass of rosé next to me… This is the first moment of peace that I’ve had all day – make that all […]

Summer Holiday Bucket List

One of the good things about being being a teacher is the holidays, although they aren’t quite what they seem. I will inevitable have to go to into work to do bits and bobs, plus lesson planning doesn’t do itself.  However, I will have 6 whole weeks without an alarm clock and 6 whole weeks […]

An Open Letter to A Former Friend

This quote is so important right now. It says so much. It’s also very true. Two things you will never have to chase: True friends & true love. Mandy Hale I’ve found that as I’ve got older, my responsibilities have increased. This has inevitably meant that my time for myself, let alone to spend the people […]

Makeup Diaries and Challenges

My Summer No-Buy Challenge

I’m not sure what’s happening to me, I seem to be turning into some sort of domestic goddess. Normally, if ever I’ve had extra money to treat myself it’s always been makeup – I’m not really a clothes person. But lately, I’ve been really focussed on improving my flat and making it more homely. In […]

Mac Viva Glam Taraji P. Henson

It feels like it’s been ages since I’ve written a product review. I’ve spent a while writing a few lifestyle posts; spending quality time with my girls and focussing on my day job. I absolutely promise that I’ve been buying and experimenting, I haven’t given up being a product junkie and it’s fitting that my […]

Why I am celebrating Father’s Day as a Single Mum

This week, I’ve read a lot of social media posts saying that single mothers celebrating Father’s Day is wrong. The reasoning being that it diminishes the role of the father in the lives of our children, and that we, as mothers shouldn’t do it.
