Natural Make Up for Spring

Yay! Spring is here. The clocks have gone forward and the evenings are lighter! And although I didn’t enjoy losing an hour of sleep or the last few days of having to convince B and A that yes it is acceptable to go to bed when it’s light, I am happy that Spring is here […]

Three Lessons I have Learnt This Mother’s Day

I wanted to acknowledge Mother’s Day in some way because being a mother is a such a huge part of my life. But this year, having lost my own mother less than a month ago, I can’t focus on it. It hurts like nothing else.  There’s so much I want to share. I owe my […]

Collection Velvet Kiss Moisturising Lip Cream

I’m old enough to remember when Collection was called Collection 2000. In those days, I used to buy quite a few of their products using my Saturday job wages. Not much has changed… my actual wages mostly get spent on makeup after bills, kids and my car. I’ve been feeling nostalgic lately and harking for […]

How Living With Anxiety Makes Me Stronger

I am a member of what feels like a million Facebook groups and follow lots of blogs. What can I say? I love reading and interacting with like minded people. Despite the massive amount of reading that I do, it’s been a while since something really resonated and wasn’t about the joys of red lipstick […]

Primark Velvet Matte Lipstick Crayon in Midnight

It’s no secret that I’m partial to a bold lip or that I’m a fan of Primark make up. And I really do like these Velvet Matte Lipstick Crayons, so much so that I wish they did more colours. The range is pretty limited. I felt like a change today so thought I would try […]

Botox In A Box

I wrote a few posts back about my introduction to Forever and how I was impressed with their Bee Pollen Capsules.  So when I decided to pay a bit more attention to my skincare and look for a mask, I thought I’d see what Forever had to offer. In the past, I’ve managed to get away […]

10 Reasons I Love Being Single

When I first found myself single again, I hated it. I found it  hard to adjust to being ‘me’ again after being ‘we’. It didn’t help that it had been such a long time since I’d last been single and things had changed a lot since then, so much so that I actually wrote a […]

Make Up Revolution Retro Luxe Matte Lip Kit in Reign

I was excited to try this Retro Luxe Matte Lipkit as I am a fan of quite a lot of Makeup Revolution’s other products, and the Fortune Favours The Brave palette is one of my favourites. (Read the review of that here.) I was hoping that it would be a good and affordable alternative to the […]

7 Self-Care Sunday Tips

The past couple of weeks have been an incredibly difficult time in my personal life. Bereavement is hard. My initial reaction was to throw myself into arrangements, blogging, cleaning even – anything as a distraction. Thing is, whilst at times I’ve been grateful of the distraction and incredibly grateful that I have two little people […]

Weekend Breakfast

I’ve not been feeling myself this week at all. It’s been a difficult week. But because I was up ridiculously early this morning (04:41 to be precise) I had time before the kids woke up to relax in a hot bath without Lego being thrown in or being asked ‘Mummy what are you doing?’ on […]
