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…

10 Nail Polishes I will be wearing in Autumn/Winter

​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…

​The Demon Inside Our Heads

I am writing this in a serious state of annoyance and frustration, every ounce of my being is on the verge of saying ‘just give up’.  I have been in this place many a time over my lifetime, at the point where I cannot take much more, wanting to hide under the duvet and refuse to come out. I am being eaten up by feelings of worthlessness; I try to do my best as a person but it just seems like whatever I do, I cannot win, even if I have the best intentions I am still wrong.

Makeup Revolution Haul and Review 

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.

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…

Another Primark Haul

Don’t you just love a bit of Primark?
I have been at it again, I saw an opportunity when buying children’s birthday presents to have a cheeky nip into Primark and have a gander at their makeup section.

Happily Ever After; Are Fairy Tales Damaging?

Once upon a time

We have all enjoyed the odd fairy tale or three; it is part of most children’s upbringing to be surrounded by these tales of magic, adventure and love, but are they really good for us? 

​Disappointing Products

Makeup can be so disappointing sometimes
After doing my ‘5 Ride or Die products’ post recently, it got me thinking; what about the products that were a letdown? We all know this feeling; you buy a new product in eagerness, either due to the good reviews or the hype surrounding them, you get home and start giving it a test run, only to discover that the product is a complete flop

​Lipsticks for Autumn

I feel like my lipstick addiction goes into overdrive as soon as autumn begins. I usually enjoy eyeshadow in the spring and summer and tend to go light on the lippy but as soon as the weather turns and September comes I am all for a bold lip. 

Extreme Makeup Trends

As long as people are buying makeup, there will always be different trends that come and go. Some are welcomed with open arms and embraced while others are given a wide berth and avoided like the plague.
