I have got a problem Hi, my name is Mrs T and I have a makeup addiction. I would wake up in the morning and think about makeup, I would think about makeup while at work, I would even go to bed thinking about makeup. I was caught in a hamster wheel of foundations, eyeliners…
I am trying not to spend unnecessary money on makeup and shop much smarter. There are so many products being released every week that it is hard to know what to get and how to spend your money in the wisest way.
The Year of women
It is the year of the woman; 100 years have passed since the suffragettes took their stand and protested and campaigned to get women the right to vote. Equality for women has progressed rapidly due to the brave actions of people who believe we should not be discriminated against due to our gender.
Everything needs a strong and solid foundation; without one, things would not be the same. Just like towers have foundations and steel structures, a good base for your makeup is essential.
Favourite Youtube channels
A few years back, YouTube was just a place to watch funny clips of dogs or bears on trampolines for me until I re-discovered makeup. It was around the same time that I threw myself into the beauty groups of Facebook that I realised that YouTube had grown into a massive platform and I became addicted.
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.
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…
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
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.
I have recently hit a few milestones here at Life With Mrs T and I want to say a huge thank you to you all. In the space of one week I managed to hit 1K followers on Instagram, 500 likes on my Facebook page and 200 followers on WordPress.
I am eternally grateful for all the love and support you have all given me, every read, every like and every comment has encouraged me to keep writing and sharing the life of Mrs T with you all.
