Hi and welcome to beauty addict mama.

I’m Nay and decided to combine my three favourite things: my daughters, makeup and writing. I work full-time and am a single parent 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 the 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. I love to read about, test, buy and collect makeup and since being introduced to 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 as musings as a mum of two girls, whilst trying to retain a bit of my own identity! As much as I am a beauty addict, I am definitely a mama. My daughters are by far the most important and all-consuming loves of my life. I love them and adore them but that doesn’t mean that I find motherhood easy or natural. I love being a mother, but I am honest about the trials and tribulations of motherhood. Seeing my daughters develop into  well-rounded little individuals has become one of my greatest achievements and challenges. Now, I just need to work on the potty training, sleeping through the  night and overcoming the fussy eating… Feel free to share your advice!
