My Everyday Make-up Look

I love to wear make-up and the only time I don't is when I'm at home and have no intention of leaving the house! (I wouldn't want to scare the neighbours!). My everyday make-up is very simple and if I want to have a more stronger look then I only have to tweak a couple of steps. It takes me about 30 mins in total (not rushing) but I can do it in 10 mins if I had too - and believe me sometimes I have had to!

I will list all the products I use below with links.

I love this product! After turning 30 at the beginning of the year I started to become more aware of wrinkle prevention and taking better care of my skin. I find that not only does it feel good on my skin it also holds my foundation all day so makes for an excellent base.
I'm not sure if it has prevented any wrinkles but I don't seem to have any yet so it must be doing something!

The Rimmel & Real Technique brushes are a staple part of my make-up routine, I have done detailed review on these items which can be found at my February Fave's post.

Benefit's Benetint is a must have for me, I use it every day when wearing make-up and apply my MUA shade 2 blusher over the top - MUA have now allocated pretty names to their blushers so I'm not sure which it is to link to but I will include them all here.

I am very into the YDK from my Naked 2 Pallet at the moment and apply it with my MAC 217 brush. The only downside to the Naked 2 Pallet for me is the fall out you get, especially from the shimmer based shadows, but hey ho it can easily be sorted out. Oh, nearly forgot, I use a small amount of Blackout just along the upper outer lash line and below the bottom lash line, this just give a nice bit of definition.

Lastly I use a small amount of Maybelline The Falsies Flared Mascara, I don't like to apply too much on a daily basis - just my preference for everyday, but it does exactly what I want it to and when I have spent time curling my lashes it holds well.

So here is my finished look - I do fill in my eyebrows using No7 brown eye pencil and add a bit of Vaseline to my lips and that's it! Jobs a gooden!

My Summer In Photo's

Just a few pics I have taken over the summer. We have had a fab summer so far, it's actually felt like summer for the first time in years! So we have made the best of it, we have been to Llandudno, on picnics, lazed in the garden, ate great food and even got a bit of colour in our cheeks (with sun cream on of course!).

So here is a snippet of our summer so far....


Let me know what you have been up to this summer? 

Thanks for visiting!

Gold Rush!

My all time favourite fragrance is Angel, I love it's very unique tone that stands out from most. Often when I am wearing it, please identify it rather than asking me what I have on, this is always followed by 'oooh it's one of my faves!'.

As it is my favourite, I like to keep it for special occasions, weddings, the rare girls night out I go on, that sort of thing. So I started to look for a fragrance that I could wear on a daily basis and one that didn't cost too much. 

After much searching and trial and error I came across a little winner...Gold by Next. I love this fragrance, it ticks all my boxes, it looks good, smells great and beat of all it lasts all day long!.

I always get the 30ml bottle and this lasts me about 3-4 months which for £7.50 is great!. They do sell a 75ml at £12 but it wouldn't be something you could throw in your handbag so I fine the 30ml most practical.

This Gold fragrance has tones of warm spice and vanilla and I think this fragrance will suit all ages and make a great birthday or Christmas gift.

Please feel free to leave your comments below, is this a favourite I yours too?

I'm Back!!

Hiya! 👋

So. It's been a pretty long time since I've wrote in my blog! Over a year I think! (Naughty me).

I've been thinking about this blog a lot lately, wondering what it is I want to achieve with it. 
I have decided it is going to be a place where I talk about lots of topics, not just beauty, but about being a mum, wife, friend etc along with balancing all areas of my daily life, money, relationships and more.

I hope you choose to come a long and see where this takes me, exciting times ahead!
