My 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 […]

8 Beauty Errors I Made As A Teenager

I live and work by a total of four different high schools. This means that just by going about my daily routine, I bump into a lot of teenage girls. And as much as they chatter,  giggle and behave just like me and my group of friends did when we were at school, two main differences […]

Mac Retro Matte Liquid Lipstick Review

I’m quite into liquid lipsticks at the moment. The first one I tried was the Chanel Rouge Allure Ink in Expérimenté which I absolutely love as it’s such a unique colour. (Check my review out here.) As I loved the consistency and the longevity, I’ve been on the hunt for liquid lipsticks from different brands […]

Giorgio Armani Power Fabric Foundation

I was so excited to try this! I’ve heard lots of good things about Giorgio Armani Beauty foundation but up until this point had never tried any. And then… I’m walking through town,  I was already late to meet a friend, when I saw the promotional stand for the Power Fabric foundation and had to look!  And obvious […]

Fortune Favours The Brave Review

I am almost completely obsessed with lipstick, but I actually wear eye shadow every day. Let’s be honest, eye shadow is still makeup. I am completely obsessed with all makeup products so it’s safe to say that I own a fair amount of eyeshadow too. In my experience, finding a good budget eye shadow palette […]

How to Prepare Your Lips for a Bold Lipstick

I used to be too scared to wear a bright lipstick, but that is no longer the case. I will admit though, bright lipsticks require a certain amount of confidence to wear but also a degree of preparation, as they draw attention to your face. So for me personally, if I have a huge blemish […]

How I Spent Valentine’s Day As A Single Mom

I love any excuse to buy a gift and a card for someone. I love an excuse to dress up and decorate my home, I’m just that way inclined! So even though I was single this year on Valentine’s Day, I decided to make a fuss of the people that I love most in the […]

How I Manage living With SVT

It’s Valentine’s Day! I’m a bit excited not because I’m expecting a huge bouquet of flowers or to be whisked of to Paris but because me and the girls will be treating ourselves later – heart-shaped chocolates, cuddles and a Disney Princess film. Why wouldn’t I treat the people I love the most?? But this […]

Ps… By Primark Review

Today, I realised that quite a lot of my recent posts had contained high end make up. So, after hearing good things about the PS… by Primark range, I decided to give it a go. I only managed to pick up four items (and a sharpener, but a sharpener is a sharpener!) to try as […]

Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation and Concealer

I tend to find foundation quite a boring product to buy; it either does the job or it doesn’t. It’s not a pretty colour or interesting texture. It just doesn’t excite me. Because of this, I often only have one foundation on the go at a time and the one I’ve just finished is Clinique […]
