Beauty – Are Primark Nails Worthy of the Hype?

I have a confession to make, one that probably isn’t surprising for anybody who watches my instagram stories and often sees the state of my nails on a daily basis. I am a nail biter. I try really hard not to bite them, but when I get stressed out (which seems to be all the time lately) I resort to biting them and, as a result, my nails are very...

Beauty – Celebrating the Launch of Temple Spa at the Bluewater Spa in Bournemouth with Sunny Bird PR

I am a huge fan of a good spa day but, with the three young children, I don’t get the chance to enjoy them very often. I was really pleased to be invited along to an event at the Connaught Hotel’s Bluewater Spa to celebrate their partnership with leading beauty skincare brand Temple Spa. My sister has previously stayed at the hotel and said how lovely it is there, but...

Beauty – The Importance of Self Care for Mums

As a mum, it can be easy to prioritise everyone else and their needs. It is sometimes hard to remember to take care of yourself, but it is so important to practise self care as often as possible.

Beauty – The Makeup & Skincare I Packed for Our Cruise

In case you somehow missed it, I am currently away on my last day of my very first cruise. Being a cruise newbie, I had no idea what to pack in general, and headed onto the internet to get some tips on what to pack for a cruise as a family. When it came to packing my makeup and skincare though, I decided I wanted just my staple products with...

Beauty – My Go-To Girly Beauty Favourites

I feel like I’ve written a post very similar to this before… the thing is, I’m a total sucker for pretty packaging, and anything pink or pastel coloured (take these cupcakes, for example, they weren’t even that tasty but they look pretty)…. These are the products I am loving at the moment, that also happen to look totally Instagram worthy on my dressing table… Garnier Soothing Botanical Toner Rimmel 60...

Beauty – Origins Ginzing™ Ultra-Hydrating Energy-Boosting Cream

If you checked out my week in the life vlog, or follow me on Instagram, you may have seen me mention that I bought myself some beauty treats with a gift card in Marks and Spencer’s recently. They were items that I loved the look of, but simply wouldn’t have been able to justify had I not of had the gift card to spend. One of my favourites from the...

Beauty – HarSPA Launch Event

If you follow me on social media, you’ll have seen that I’ve been feeling under the weather for the past few weeks. I have overworked myself, pushed myself too hard recently, and it has taken a toll on my health. When I was invited along to the launch of the new HarSPA range of products and treatments, I jumped at the chance for a proper pamper and, last Thursday, I...

Urban Decay Naked Palette I already have the Urban Decay Naked 2 and 3 palettes, and I love them! The pigmentation of the eye shadows is incredible compared to others I have used, and I love how...
