My Latest Primark Makeup Finds

Have I ever told you how much I love Primark? So many great things under one roof and utter bargains too. Well… it’s a bargain if you buy one or two items, possibly not if you buy what feels like 30,000 makeup items stuff into those little brown paper bags. However, it’s Primark! I just […]

Look Fantastic October

I have to say, I’m really enjoying my subscription to the Look Fantastic box. It really is the best of the subscription boxes that I’ve tried so far. It’s packaged beautifully (and is the perfect shade of pink to match my newly decorated bedroom. Perfection!) and comes with a free glossy magazine. What more could I […]

One of the reasons that I wanted to write this post was that when I first discovered that I had a subchorionic hematoma whilst pregnant with my younger daughter, I turned to Dr Google (I had to, I’d never heard of it before) and was met with horror stories. I read everything from ‘it’s a […]

Birchbox September

I know it’s October but better late than never right? I had cancelled my Birchbox subscription but then something about this box called to me! So, I had to resubscribe and order this box. The one thing I like about Birchbox is the element of choice. So even though I ordered my box at the […]

Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance

The Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance eyeshadow palette has been on my wishlist for so long. Everyone in my life knew that I have been lusting after it since what felt like the beginning of time.

10 Things Not To Say To a Single Mom

Normally, being a single mother doesn’t phase me. I’m so used to it, it’s my normal. But that doesn’t mean it’s easy just because I’m used to it. This past week has been hard. Ill kids, ill mommy, technological failures… the list goes on. You name it, we’ve experienced it this week. Admittedly,  I’m ill […]

How to Have The Perfect Date Night

Yesterday was date night! Yes, on a week night. It felt like I was 18 again. Drinking a gin cocktail on a Tuesday evening seemed ridiculously indulgent for a full-time working mum of two. The fact I’m no longer a student meant that it was sadly only the one.  But it was a special occasion. […]
