2017: A Year In Review 

The Year Life with Mrs T began
In March of this year, my blog began. Originally when I decided that it would be fun to do some blogging I was using Blogger and my Blog was called Mrs T’s Makeup Bag. I started on 5th March this year with a post called ‘Shop My Stash’ and the rest, they say, is history. I have learnt so much since I started my blogging journey, both about blogging and about myself as a person. 

Bring On The Party Makeup 

Whether it is a work event, a gathering with friends or a family get together, Christmas and New Year is the time to party on down with the people you love (or at least tolerate once a year because there is free food and drink). The age old question that springs to peoples minds when preparing for a big function is usually ‘what do I wear?’ However, for the makeup addict such as myself the first question that springs to mind is ‘what makeup look am I going to rock?’

Christmas Traditions At Mrs T's 

The Elf on the Shelf
We have an elf called Pedro, he arrives on December 1st and causes mischief until Christmas eve. We have had another addition to the elf brigade this year in the shape of Pinto, the tiny elf. I started the Elf on the shelf when Sebastian was nearly two years old and he loved it although it is a bit of a chore to think of 25 different things that the Elf could do over December

The Season of Goodwill

What is goodwill?
It is often said that Christmas is the season of goodwill; likewise, the phrase ‘goodwill to all men’ is synonymous with the festive period. The phrase originates from the book of Luke from the New Testament and is linked to the idea of peace on earth

Christmas Themed Make up Looks 

Christmas, as you might know, is my favourite time of the year. This love also extends into my makeup looks, I really enjoy creating Christmas themed makeup looks from smoky eyes to full-on glitter eyes, I feel Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year to experiment with my eyeshadow looks; here are some of my favourite Christmas inspired looks, which one do you like best?

Christmas Anti Haul

With Christmas around the corner, the big brands are scrambling to get you to spend your Christmas money on their products. Christmas gift sets have been around for ages, but it is only really in the last few years that holiday season, limited addition makeup has been tempting us makeup addicts. Now I am all for a good splurging at this time of year, my Christmas Decoration Haul proves that, but I am also a bit of a Scrooge when it comes to the whole holiday season makeup thing.  So with a big old ‘Bah Humbug’ I bring you my second Anti Haul of all the products I will NOT be buying over the holiday season. 

Planning To Avoid Stress; Christmas Edition 

Christmas can be stressful
I feel like that heading is a bit of an understatement, Christmas can be one of the most stressful times of the year and a nightmare to keep track of. It is supposed to be ‘the season of goodwill’, a time that we spend with the people we love, our family and friends; spending precious time together and showing our love. Instead, we spend the majority of Christmas queueing, getting annoyed with all the presents you have to get/wrap and running around like a headless chicken trying to make sure the house is well stocked with food because we need tons of food at Christmas

What's On My Christmas Wishlist 

What is on your Christmas wish list? Whether you are young, old or somewhere in between, a wish list is an essential tool to let your loved ones know what you what to find under your tree come Christmas day. Since I have been a teenager I have been writing wish lists; whether it was…

Christmas Decoration Haul
