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…

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’. 

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. 

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?

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

​Copycats; Is It Makeup Plagiarism?

I have just seen a post on Facebook talking about the release of the new W7 ‘Blazin’ palette which looks extremely similar in shade range to the Urban Decay ‘Naked Heat’ palette, almost identical in fact. The thread exploded with two different camps of makeup addict; those that were delighted and those that were disgruntled. …

Things That Become Harder With Kids  

Five years ago life was a lot simpler for me, basic tasks could be performed with ease and I sailed through life on a cloud of productivity, it was bliss. Now my ability to complete even basic mundane tasks has been hampered under a cloud of confusion and failure. So what happened to turn me  from a reasonably functioning human being…

​Things To Do With The Kids in Autumn 

Whenever I hear about people doing things with their children it is usually in the summer time, maybe due to the summer holidays or the better weather. However, I much prefer the autumn/winter when it comes to doing fun activities with my kids, maybe it is because I am a bit of an ‘indoors’ type…

Beauty Horror Stories 

Halloween is approaching and I thought I would celebrate in a different way; many people are doing SFX Halloween looks and looks inspired by the festival of ghosts and ghoalies but I thought I would tell you some stories that will chill you to the bone and make you reach for your beauty products and…
