Dealing with the loss of my mum

My reason for writing this post and explaining how I feel about it is two-fold. I hope to better understand my own thoughts and also help someone else. Grief really is unpredictable, all consuming and hits at the most unlikely times. I wanted this post to be the post that I looked for, but couldn’t […]

Making Memories

My day out to Liverpool

It is so, so rare that I get an actual child-free day to myself that when the Bank Holiday came around and I found myself child-free, I took full advantage and did something out of the ordinary. This Bank Holiday, my girls were with their father for a change so I decided to head to Liverpool […]

Foundation

Givenchy Mattissime Velvet Fluid

I know that my favourite foundation is Giorgio Armani Power Fabric but there really isn’t any harm in trying other foundations. After all, I love make up and suddenly have an interest in foundation because a lot of new ones are coming onto the market. There are new formulations and big promises made. I want […]

Mini H&M Haul

I am a huge H&M fan and was thrilled when my local city finally got a store and saved me a 45 minute journey just to have a look at what they had to offer. The new store has been open a few weeks but I’ve not really had the time to properly browse, until […]

7 Ways I Manage My Anxiety

After posting my recent post about how living with anxiety makes me strong, I received lots of positive feedback about my openness, but also lots of questions asking me for the strategies that I use. I was initially hesitant to write this post because I am not an expert by any means. I just write about […]
