Beauty – My Pre-Holiday Boots Haul 

As you may have gathered by now, I’m a huge fan of highstreet favourite Boots and I make all my beauty purchases from there. I’ve previously posted my money saving tips and other hauls, and I generally am a huge fan.  Just before we headed out to Santorini, I had a little splurge on some beauty bits and I wanted to share them.   Razors  I always buy these razors...

Beauty – My Max Factor Makeup Mini Haul 

I absolutely love buying new makeup. It is one of my guilty pleasures and one of the only things I will justify spending money on for myself as makeup makes me feel more human after days on end of sleepless nights.  If you’re a regular reader of my blog you’ll know that I’ve been on the hunt for the ‘perfect’ foundation for quite some time without much success. It’s early...

Beauty – Revlon Colorstay Foundation Review 

Like many other women, I’m on the hunt for the holy grail of foundations. I’ve not got a huge budget when it comes to makeup, so as much as I’d love the high end brands I can’t justify the cost.  When I saw that Revlon’s Colorstay was apparently a dupe for the Ester Lauder Doublewear foundation I figured I had nothing to lose. I had picked up a sample of...

My Big Boots Beauty Birthday Haul

I’ve mentioned before that I find it hard to treat myself generally, however, for my birthday I was very fortunate to get a fair amount of birthday money and I decided that, as well as getting some new summer clothes, I would stock up on some beauty favourites and use the opportunity to try out some new products.  So, what did I buy?  Pearl Drops Pure White Whitening Treatment x...

Mummy Mondays – The Mummy Behind the Makeup 

I have never been very self confident. Back when I was a teenager I had to have braces on my teeth and it has left me unable to smile easily, something which I think I’ve already managed to pass on to my eldest son Cameron much to my dismay.  As I grew older, the braces were gone but the lack of self esteem they had brought lingered on and I...

Beauty – Stocking up on Makeup Essentials 

You may have noticed by now, I’m a big fan of No7 makeup, and Boots in general. It’s my go-to shop for all things beauty, helped along by its wonderful advantage card (even better now I’m expecting a baby and am part of the parenting club). The other day I was running out of foundation so I popped into the shop for a new bottle and ended up coming away...

My Current Top 5 Beauty Products 

So I’ve decided not to carry on with my Throwback Thursday series. I started it wanting it to be a chance to cover serious topics covering my past, and I will still discuss my past in future posts, as I find it really cathartic. I don’t ever want to force my writing though, and this is how I’ve started to feel trying to come up with meaningful topics, which are...

Amazing Base 

I am the first to admit that I’m a bit of a makeup addict. I am very insecure with a bare face and I struggle to comprehend how some girls are able to go makeup free whilst I still struggle to cope not reapplying after a long day at work (seriously, I think the air conditioning eats my foundation or something because I come out of work looking like some...
