With life at the moment I was considering not doing this post, but hey, here I am. I am a stickler for a routine.

Let's Talk: It's OK to not be OK



Since January I have been posting every other day. Something I was super proud of. But this week my life flipped upside down.


Extreme Estée Lauder Double Wear Foundation Review and Swatches


 
Estee Lauder Double Wear is a foundation pretty much everyone owns, from every blogger on the planet to my grandmother, everyone is rocking double wear.
 
So I decided to do a review with a twist, to see it if really is worth its hype, and deserves its cult status.

Make Up Collection: Top Used Eyeshadow Singles




I never used to like eyeshadow singles, I found them too fussy. But over the past 6 months I have learned to love and appreciate them. Simple washes of colour, or to add a little something special.


So here is my top 10 most used eyeshadow singles, I hope you enjoy!

Let's Talk: The Reality of Becoming a Parent




 Becoming a mother is without a doubt my greatest achievement. I love my son more than word can tell, he is my pride and joy, and without him my life would be incomplete.

But, having him was the hardest thing I have ever done. No one is able to quite warn you enough to how much your life is going to change, and how really nothing will ever be the same again.

So here is my advice, for the realities of having a child - because trust me, it isn't all dresses, toys and fairytales.

How to Fake Natural Beauty (Seventeen Makeup)





So I was in my local boots the other day and they FINALLY had the Seventeen new WOW concealer in stock in my shade (fair). So I celebrated by doing their 3 for 2, and bought two more items along with the concealer (as you do, you know?)

What I didn't realise was how well this trio would work together, and how they would make me want to try a new style of makeup... *gulp* NATURAL. I know. I never wear a natural make up look, I am a very all or nothing type of girl.

So here is how I have been using them, and mini reviews/first impressions on each one.

Summer Ice Lolly Mould Recipes

Up in Scotland the weather has been pretty amazing (Yes highs of 19*C is considered HOT here lol) so we have been at the park pretty much all week. After the park AJ is always wanting something to cool him down, so I bought these Annabel Karmel ice lolly molds to play around with.

Needless to say AJ & I have have been living off these ice lollies all week, we have been experimenting in flavours and colours, so we thought we would share our favourite options with you!


May Empties



Another month, another empties.

Your Top Wedding Lipstick?


One of my close friends is getting married this month, and she asked me a simple question, one that is on many brides minds... which lipstick do I wear?

In all honesty I couldn't answer the question, it seems impossible, to pick a lipstick on a day you are going to remember forever..... it needs to look good in all the photos, last throughout the day, including drinking and a big meal... it just seems the impossible choice.



May Wishlist

It's now mid may, and here are the things I am dreaming of this month :)

MakeUp Storage & Where I do my Makeup


The past month or so I have really been thinking about where other people do their makeup. I know we all dream of the perfect instagram-able vanity with the perfect make up storage, but is that the reality for everyone?

My Makeup Journey & Beauty Q&As

   



So recently I have been tagged by a few bloggers to share questions about makeup, or just to share my makeup journey, so I figured I could mash them together, and come away with a post which gave me a chance to respond, and to give you the chance to get to know me better. So here is my story, I hope you enjoy.


Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette Review & Swatches!



It has been a while since I have actually squealed in a shop. Must I must admit I did when I seen this (seriously ask the girls on the UD counter, I was a tad excited)

But I really wasn't expecting this to be launched in the UK until May, so when I walked into my local Debenhams on Thursday and seen one single one left - it just HAD to be mine. There was no way I was putting it down or thinking about it. Who needs food this week right?
