I love you Mum Mother’s Day is very near here in the UK and it is the opportunity to show our appreciation to our wonderful Mums. Being a Mother myself I can now appreciate how hard the job can be at times. My own Mum certainly deserves a lot of love for putting up with…
Why do a collective haul?
The simple reason for this is for productivity reasons. At my current rate of two posts a week I have realised that I do not have the space for as many hauls. The frequency of haul posts is alerting me to the fact that I have a slight shopping obsession.
Who doesn’t love the idea of rummaging through somebody else’s trash? For me, watching empties videos on YouTube is for me much better than haul videos because you get to find out what a product is like as often, just after a haul you will still have that ‘new purchase euphoria’ that can cloud your mind. It sometimes is a measure of a product that after you have finished the whole thing, you still want to use it, and indeed repurchase it while other products you cannot wait to finish because you feel like they are not that good.
The Scrooge of Valentines
Myself and Mr T got married on Valentines day; not because we thought it would be a romantic idea but due to it was the only date that was available that fitted with my teaching schedule and us not wanting a summer wedding. Whenever I tell people that my anniversary is on Valentines I get ‘that’s so sweet’ but then I tell them that myself and Mr T do not do valentines cards/gifts they look at me like I am crazy.
I always like reading and watching what other people like using; favourite posts are a great way of finding out about all the good products are. It is so hard to find out what is a genuinely good product and what is hyped up by the beauty community and bigger influencers. I tend to rely on smaller Youtubers and bloggers as, being one myself, I can assure you that I have purchased these products myself and would recommend and repurchase them, my opinion of these is only driven by love for them.
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
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’
Deck the halls with boughs of holly la la la la la la la. It’s approaching that time of year again it’s Christmas this has to be my favourite holiday I get super excited about it. Christmas time is the one time the year I can really go mad.
10 favourite nail polishes for the season Nail polish used to be a thing I was obsessed with, I had tonnes of different colours and finishes and would spend hours painting my nails so they looked perfect. I am sad to say that after the birth of my second child, the nail polish addiction fell…
I have been trying to resist the temptation to buy any more eyeshadow, again I feel like I failed miserably at this because I didn’t just buy one eyeshadow palette from Tam Beauty, I bought three. Tam beauty is the collective name for many makeup brands such as Makeup Revolution, Freedom and Makeup Obsession and they are pioneering the market when it comes to good quality makeup that is on trend for a fraction of the price of the higher end brands.
