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 […]

3 Time Saving Beauty Must-Haves

In an ideal world, I would have oodles of time each morning to spend getting ready. The fact is, I don’t. There are lots of positives to being a mum, but one down side is having to get myself and two very early risers ready and out of the door by 7:30 five days a […]

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 […]

Natural Make Up for Spring

Yay! Spring is here. The clocks have gone forward and the evenings are lighter! And although I didn’t enjoy losing an hour of sleep or the last few days of having to convince B and A that yes it is acceptable to go to bed when it’s light, I am happy that Spring is here […]

Collection Velvet Kiss Moisturising Lip Cream

I’m old enough to remember when Collection used to be Collection 2000 and I used to buy quite a few of their products using my Saturday job wages. Twenty years later and not much has changed… my actual wages mostly get spent on makeup after childcare, bills and my car. I’ve been feeling nostalgic lately […]

How Living With Anxiety Makes Me Stronger

I am a member of what feels like a million Facebook groups and follow lots of blogs. I love reading and interacting with like minded people. Yet, despite the massive amount of reading that I do, it’s been a while since something really resonated and wasn’t about the joys of red lipstick or waiting impatiently for […]

Primark Velvet Matte Lipstick Crayon in Midnight

It’s no secret that I’m partial to a bold lip or that I’m a fan of Primark make up. And I really do like these Velvet Matte Lipstick Crayons, so much so that I wish they did more colours. The range is pretty limited. I felt like a change today, so thought I would try […]

10 Reasons I Love Being Single

When I first found myself single again, I hated it. I found it  hard to adjust to being ‘me’ again after being ‘we’. I found everything hard. Living by myself, parenting alone and just being by myself every day. It didn’t help that it had been such a long time since I’d last been single […]

7 Self-Care Sunday Tips

The past couple of weeks have been an incredibly difficult time in my personal life. Bereavement is hard. My initial reaction was to throw myself into arrangements, blogging, cleaning even – anything was a distraction. Thing is, whilst at times I’ve been grateful of the distraction, and incredibly grateful that I have two little people […]

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 […]
