Primark Perfume and Makeup Haul

It is time for another haul and again I have been rummaging in the aisles of Primark for some budget-friendly beauty items. Mr T suggested we take a trip to the next town so he could get some stuff for his board game collection and I saw it as the perfect excuse to go to Primark. My master plan was to stock up on some eyeliner, however, I was distracted by the perfume section and holographic delights

My Relationship with Food

January is a month we associate with fresh starts, resolutions and changes in our life and often many people decide that this year they want to lose weight. The diet and fitness industry is worth billions and often capitalises on all those people who have had one too many mince pies over the Christmas period and feel the pinch of their trousers and shirts after the festive period is packed up for another year

Why the Tarte Shape Tape foundation has ruffled so many feathers

As we all know, with any community of people there is bound to be a difference of opinion and sometimes conflict; the term ‘drama’ replacing this concept in our age of social media and YouTube. In a community where everyone is different but all the same in that they are human beings, shouldn’t brands cater…

Claire's Accessories Scandal; How Safe Are Our Children?

Child’s play
Do you remember playing with makeup as a child? One of my earliest memories involved three-year-old me colouring all my fingernails using felt tip pens because I was too young to use nail varnish; my dad having to use a nail brush to get it off my nails. There were countless times I would try and raid my mother’s makeup collection and I think I had some makeup designed for children as I used to paint the face of my Girl’s World

Oh My Glitter Mystery Box

Who are Oh My Glitter? 
I discovered indie makeup brand Oh My Glitter through the various Facebook makeup groups. Oh My Glitter is run by the lovely Robyn and I saw her makeup being recommended by lots of people, with many of my friends being loyal customers of hers. She is well known for her mystery packages and I snapped one up in September and was blown away by the attention to detail, care and love that had gone into the mystery box, it was an absolute treat to open it and I felt spoilt. 

The Blogger Recognition Award

I have been somewhat of a forgetful blogger; having a full time job and a family has often hindered my ability to be a super responsive blogger. I have been nominated for various awards from other bloggers, which is a massive honour and has made me smile, but for one reason or another I have forgotten to get my backside into gear and get the posts written, also I write posts a month in advance making a quick response harder. I am truly thankful for the recognition from other bloggers as I know how hard bloggers have to work, so I feel like I need to add an apology with this. I am tardy in responding to this nomination from the lovely Jecca at Marble Crow Curiosities. 

New Year, New Beginings 

Another year older and wiser
As 2018 steps into my life I turned another year older on 3rd January. I have now come to accept growing older as an inevitability and something that really has clarified things for me and my mind. As I said in a previous post I prefer Christmas and celebrating that over celebrating my birthday and as my husband says ‘it’s just another day’. 

Christmas and Birthday Presents 

I have been a lucky girl this year; I feel well and truly spoiled and privileged to be able to have what I want. Since as my birthday is unbelievably near Christmas (3rd January), I usually get a lot of things combined together. I don’t bother as much with my birthday as much as I do with Christmas, as Mr T would say ‘It’s just another day’
