Hi and welcome to beauty addict mama.

I’m Nay and decided to combine my three favourite things: my daughters, makeup and writing to create this blog.

I’m a single parent to two little girls, and work full-time, so admittedly my spare time is limited, but I enjoy writing and needed an outlet for my creativity!  I wanted to give myself a focus that was just for me.

I’ve been writing on and off for many years but now I’ve started to do it more frequently and write simply for  pleasure. I’m a huge blog reader and subscribe to loads! So thought I’d give it a go.

I have been more than a little obsessed with makeup for as long as I can remember, which was well before I was allowed to wear it. My mum made me wait until I was 15 before she would let me experiment with dodgy foundation and frosted eyeshadow. At the time I was frustrated, in hindsight I should be grateful for the fact there is less photographic evidence of my makeup disasters.

I love to read about, test, buy and collect makeup and since being introduced to MUJI acrylic storage drawers, my collection has exploded. Having somewhere to store my collection is great!

At beauty addict mama you will find posts about beauty products, makeup reviews, and a random collection of my thoughts and musings as a mum of two girls, whilst trying to retain a bit of my own identity!
