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 […]

How To Online Date As A Single Mom

The last time I was single and dating was 14 years ago. Yep, 2003 was the last time that I was interested in meeting men and going on dates, so finding myself divorced and back in the dating game was a shock to the system. Now admittedly, life has changed since 2003 – I’m older, […]

Clinique Crayola Chubby Lip Crayon Box

I had a few hours of child-free time last weekend. I was so excited. It was the first time in weeks. I can’t even class work as child-free time; I work in a school. But, at least at work I don’t have to share my lunch or be watched when I go to the toilet… […]

My Top 5 Perfumes

Perfume is just another part of my beauty product obsession! I remember getting my first bottle of perfume at 16, when my gran bought me a small bottle of Anais Anais for Christmas. I loved it so much, took it everywhere and wore it every day –  even though I couldn’t pronounce it and still […]

My Brush Cleaning Routine

In my opinion, most make up, especially foundation, looks a lot better when it has been put on with a brush or a sponge. There are some amazing brushes available – I am a huge fan of the Real Techniques brushes. However, when using brushes, it is important to remember to clean them properly and […]

Mental Health

In 2017 I will…

For me, 2016 has been a year of lessons. I’ve learnt even more about how to stand on my own feet and be the strong mother that my daughters deserve. I’ve learnt how to be myself, what I stand for and the values by which I live my life. I’ve removed people from my life this […]

My New Year’s Beauty Resolutions

  It’s that predictable time of year when everyone’s attention turn to self-improvement and how we can make the upcoming year a better year for ourselves. Yep it’s time for New Year’s Resolutions. I wouldn’t necessarily say that I’ve had an horrendous 2016, but I can’t lie, I’m looking forward to it being over and […]

My Latest Sleek Makeup Haul

Anyone who has read my letter to Santa will know that I was really excited to open my not-so-secret-gift. It was one of the huge Sleek Makeup Christmas collection boxes. As much as I love the excitement of limited edition products, it can be a pain if they’re amazing as I then have to buy up as […]
