How I Practice Daily Self Care

I've never needed time for myself more than I do recently. I love my job - blogging and freelancing - but I also have a baby (teething and crawling), a son, a fiance, a house to run and numerous other things. Short of a tropical holiday right now, I'm in need of regular breaks. Not just breaks, but time to love myself. Because in the words of Ru Paul "If you can't love yourself, how in the hell you gonna love somebody else?"

Father's Day Gift Guide - The Grooming Edit

When it comes to the men in my life, they're all about grooming. Between my fiance, my brother, my Dad...they're all very into taking care of their appearance. Not to the extent that they do anything other than make sure they're clean, fresh and smelling great, you know, the norm. Which makes things like Christmas and Birthday's really easy for me, because you can't go wrong with male grooming products. I could probably buy all of them the same and they'd still be over the moon to be honest. A good aftershave, some smellies and a nice bath set and they'd be happy with any. It's a good job too because the beauty blogger in me loves giving beauty and grooming style gifts for any occasion. 


The One Place You May Be Overlooking For Beauty Shopping...

When it comes to shopping for beauty products, we've all got our favourites haven't we? We've got the amazing all-in-one's like my good friends Cult Beauty and co. Then we've got department stores galore - all with mostly the same brands, but a few exclusives which mean we could never be fully loyal to just one. Then there's the direct brands that are only sold online, and the overseas brands too that we can't get very easily either. Without the make up mecca, Sephora, opening it's doors here in the UK and making all our beauty dreams come true, we do tend to have to shop around for our beauty buys. That's okay, but did you know there's somewhere closer than you think that you may have overlooked?

How To Get Warm Neutral Eye Looks In A Snap

As ever, I'm always looking out for the best eyeshadow palettes for complete looks. Eyeshadow palettes are my number one favourite piece of make up. I have so many but I'll never stop adding to my collection because palettes are bae - right boys and girls?

Why Having Children Young Was The Best Thing I Ever Did

As a mum of two, I live in the constant mum-mode whirlwind. I have two boys - one nearly 8 years old and one nine month - yes, there's a big gap between the two of them. I am now the ripe old age of 3-0 and quite content to be a Mummy of two, a fiance, a homemaker and the such. But it's not an easy task - parenthood is tough, and motherhood is at times the most testing role I've ever had to undertake. But I wouldn't change it for the world. My children mean everything to me.

L'Oreal Infaillible Takes A New Turn (With Swatches of All The Foundation Sticks!)

A while back I wrote about the L'Oreal Infallible range when it first landed on my doorstep. I was pretty impressed with the longevity the foundation provided, and could see why everyone raved about it. The Infallible collection in itself has since become like it's own brand-within-a-brand, because eit's so well recognised now. So when the new collection from the range dropped, I was excited to say the least. not just because I knew it could only get better, but because they had some seriously attractive looking pieces and some much needed additions to the Infallible range.

April Favourites & New In Beauty

First off, yes I'm late. No, not that kinda late (two kids is enough for me!) but late in delivering this (last) months Favourites and New In Beauty post. I'm a poor excuse for a blogger but I do have a valid reason - laryngitis and a throat infection. I'm still fighting it off, but fortunately my voice has returned - along with a bit more energy. Hurray! So, although it's a week late, I hope you'll still enjoy reading about the items I loved most last month, and what's new in too. And hopefully, as ever, you'll find some golden goodies to try this month.
